In this episode of the Beastified! podcast, We are joined by Michael Sanders. Michael is committed to fostering human connection and improving the world. Michael is a passionate traveler, athlete, mover, meditator, and Burning Man participant. Ayahuasca showed him aspects of reality that he was previously unaware of and inspired him to fulfill a lifelong desire to write a book. The plant medicine deepened his bond with nature and led him to become a partner and Vice President in renewable energy startup SunMoon Energy. Their mission is to evolve humanity onto clean energy and heal our planet. He is a Shaman at Lovelution: The Evolution of Love on the Dance Floor. They combine shamanic sound therapy and meditation with the world’s grooviest dance music to infuse humanity and the universe with love www.lovelution.love

Passionate about travel, athletics and movement, he enjoys strength training, acrobatics, dance, Parkour, gymnastics, snowboarding, hiking, hand balancing, squash and other sports. 

You have to do the biggest thing you can to help the world in the biggest way.”  M. Sanders

Each week after the podcast we ask the guest for a quick small challenge so that you can take action right away in your life, why not try this out could be a game changer:

  • Challenge: The moment you wake up each morning, recognize that the entire universe is conspiring in your favour. If you don't recognize that as the truth, tell yourself that the entire universe is conspiring in your favour until it becomes the truth.


This will be an eye-opening experiment. When you do this Challenge, please post a comment or email to let us know how it went. 


  • Typical Morning Routine: I drink water with sea salt and lemon. I move for 15-20 minutes: mobility stuff, spending time in a squat, hanging from a bar, moving like an animal, pull-ups and handstands. Then, I meditate  for 15-20 minutes.
  • Most Influential Person: I'll name a few people who have been hugely influential for me: John Lennon, Ido Portal, Jack Kerouac, Christopher Nolan, James Cameron, Joe Rogan, Justin Roy, Sidney Smith, My parents, and all the beautiful Goddesses who reveal the beauty of our universe. Michael said he could could name countless more :)
  • Inspirational Quote: "Just when the caterpillar thought his life was over, he became a butterfly" 
  • Influential Books or Reads: Stalking the Wild Pendulum by Itzhak Bentov, The Prophet by Khalil Gibran, On The Road by Jack Kerouac, If On A Winter's Night A Traveler by Italo Calvino, The Doors of Perception by Aldous Huxley
