075: Stop Getting Stuck in Your Head by Integrating Science and Spirit with Dr. Daniel Harner

Do you struggle with analysis-paralysis? Overthinking?

Engineering leaders thrive on intelligence… But what do you do when you are stuck in your head?

In this episode, you will see what extreme intelligence combined with extraordinary heartfelt emotion looks like in my good friend, Dr. Daniel Harner.

Some people call Dr. Harner a psycho-spiritual mentor, therapist, healer, spiritual guide, wizard, Carl Jung 2.0, researcher and explorer. The truth is, Daniel is a blend of all of that.

Daniel holds a Bachelor and Master of Science degree in Psychology, a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology, and a doctorate in Clinical Psychology. He is the smartest person in the room, but he’s not stuck in his head.

So press play and let’s chat… as we discover how to integrate ourselves fully, both in science and spirit!
