EMB #227: Four Purposes of Life with Dan Millman

I couldn’t be more excited to bring another interview to you on Exploring Mind and Body featuring Dan Millman. One of my favourite authors and guests on the show, this is Dan’s 4th’s appearance! Which is only fitting given the title of his book we’re talking about today.

I always feel grateful to have Dan back on the show and he certainly doesn’t disappoint. Another one of my favourite interviews coming at you as Dan talks about the Four Purposes of Life.
