Setting Ultra Racing Records, Hallucinations in the Grand Canyon, and Rebirth with Liz Sampey

Never Stop Peaking on iTunes | Spotify | Google Play | Stitcher

Liz Sampey is the women’s record holder for the fastest time in the AZT 750 race, the world’s largest single track bike race.  I met her in Indonesia in November of 2018, and she left a permanent inspirational impression on me thereafter.  I spent a few hours over breakfast with a dropped jaw, listening to her story which navigated a path from self uncertainty, toxic relationships, and depression to celebrated endurance athlete and holistic performance coach. A year later, we are finally re-connecting to bring the power of her story to the podcast.

Liz’s post after finishing her record setting AZT 750 race.

From ultra racing, spiritual rebirth, and contemplating death to a complete mental and physical breakdown at 2:00am alone while crossing a river in the Grand Canyon during a 750 miles race (watch the video of her breakdown) this conversation is exploding with goodness. We also dissect the power of not only visualizing your dreams but feeling them during the manifestation process.

Clearly, Liz never stops peaking. But, what kind of trauma and shadow did she have to work through to create the foundation that supports all the strength she now has? Listen to the episode for all answers.

She captured this shot during our call which clearly needed to be shared:

Creating Transformational Travel Experiences with Ian Hoyt of Life Nomading

Never Stop Peaking on iTunes | Spotify | Google Play | Stitcher

In the opinion of the beautiful brain sheltered within my skull, travel is the most magical and effective form of education. The experience of differing worlds, the virgin interactions with culture, and the pure disconnection from our routine lives are all packed with infinite wisdom, humility, growth and opportunity. There is simply nothing that gets me high like world travel.

Our party crew in Bulgaria

I had the honor of meeting Ian Hoyt while on one of his Life Nomading trips in Bulgaria a few weeks ago. Ian started this travel resource as a blog many years ago, in the heat of dropping out of college to pursue his higher calling. From slinging aviation t-shirts and flying airplanes, to building charging cubes for electronic devices in a creepy basement, Ian took several risky leaps toward entrepreneurship and following his muse before hitting his rock bottom fetal position attack from resistance.

In this episode, Ian and I dissect his journey from anxiety and resistance to creating transformational travel experiences with Life Nomading. We both whole-heartedly value efforts to help facilitate the exploration of personal growth through experience, and this episode takes a deep dive into why it’s so important to break out of your comfort box and create the life you love.

Iboga and the Bwiti Tradition: Self Transformation and Deep Healing with Levi Barker of the Iboga Wellness Center

Never Stop Peaking on iTunes | Spotify | Google Play | Stitcher

Levi Barker is remarkable Bwiti Iboga provider and facilitator at Iboga Wellness Center in Costa Rica. After being addicted to opiates throughout a large chunk of his twenties and thirties, Levi discovered the life-altering transformational and healing powers of Iboga, a plant medicine native to the Gabon and Cameroon areas of west Central Africa. 

The root of the Iboga plant includes many beneficial alkaloids, including Ibogaine.

In this interview, we explore the sacred and ceremonial use of Iboga for personal transformation and healing, as well as its role as an unmatchable tool in opiate recovery ongoing integration. We also cover a little bit of the history, science, and common uses of the Iboga root and one of its alkaloids, Ibogaine.

“If we can get things moving on an energetic level, it helps us manifest what we want in our life on a physical level.”

Levi Barker

Iboga is an intelligent medicine that does not stop teaching. As if you are entering a portal to a waking dream state, it is common for experiences with Iboga or Ibogaine to dive deep internally, highlighting the importance of self-love at a core level.

Mother Nature’s Healing Powers: Hiking the PCT w/ Sarah Wallace

Never Stop Peaking on iTunes | Spotify | Google Play | Stitcher

When was the last time you were outside, laying on your back with your big beautiful eyes gazing at the stars without distraction? In those moments, the only thing that seems to run through my mind is the pure magic of existence, the gratitude of experience, and the humility of myself. Even if you can remember a night like this, I bet it’s been nearly impossible to put a strand of nights together in this situation throughout your life. Most of us escape to the great outdoors only for a few days before we are suctioned back into the “work for money” life. What would it be like to disconnect for an extended period of time and live in the wilderness like our distant ancestors? 

Sarah Wallace aka “The Darling Dirtbag” or “Vice” recently finished hiking roughly 2,650 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail, which spans from the Mexico border to the Canadian border, and it drastically changed her view of life forever. She noticed her personality warp, her compassion expand, and her sense of awareness explode to new realms. She morphed from extrovert to introvert in finding the serenity of spending time alone, but none of these miraculous transformations came without suffering, grit, or physical exhaustion.

I’m pumped to share episode 22 with Sarah because we explore who she was before the hike and who she is now. (and it’s a beautiful switch) We also rage into conversations about the detoxifying forest, the power of true community, gear tips, living a meaningful life, and the benefits of synching with nature’s circadian rhythm.

The Milk Carton Kid: Seven Years Running w/ Lily Fouts


In 1987, Lily Ann Fouts was eight years old. Her abusive father was given custody of her and her sister (age six) over their loving, magical mother due to an unfortunate judiciary decision. Lily and her sister begged their mother not to leave them with her father. Out of unconditional motherly love, in an attempt to protect her children, Lily’s mother offered her daughters the only solution: to go on the run and escape the abuse while risking everything.
 
It wasn’t long before Lily’s face appeared on the milk cartons as a “missing child.” For the next seven years, Lily, her mother, and her sister evaded authorities throughout the United States and Mexico, figuring out how to survive daily by the grace of good people, community, and a series of universal synchronicity visions that helped guide them along the way. This classified them as fugitives which unfortunately meant that they were constantly being tracked for capture.
 
In this episode, Lily breaks down her experience as a child on the run and all of the magic and tragedy that happened along the way. From puking in fish markets to escaping out back alleys while her mother was tracked by bounty hunters and cops, this story is remarkably inspiring and full of grit.
 
Ever since her conversion to living on the road, Lily has not given up the lifestyle of being nomadic. She travels and lives full time out of her RV with her husband, and uses her experience to help others create unconventional lifestyles of location independence and sustainable businesses on the road.
 
I met Lily in 2015 at the World Domination Summit in Portland, Oregon long before I ever moved to the Rose City. I’ve always admired and looked up to her approach at experiencing life, and I wouldn’t be anywhere close to where I am without her early (and continued) influence.
