    196: Alyson Stoner – Transcending Yourself Through the Art of Movement

    24/03/2021 Duración: 01h04min

    “There is poetry in how you treat yourself.” - Alyson Stoner I'm really pumped to share today's episode with Alyson Stoner. You have probably already heard of Alyson, a former actor, singer, and dancer. She has been working in the Hollywood entertainment world for over 20 years — since she was a kid! She’s performed with Missy Elliot, Outkast, and Ludacris, and she regularly works with Disney Channel. Now she is producing, writing, and directing, and is one of the founders of Movement Genius where she teaches people how to heal themselves through movement. She is also a vocal advocate for mental health and I love that she is on track to become the best version of herself. In this episode, Alyson and I talk about what it was like growing up in an adult world, how she learned to connect with people who shared similar interests, and how to use movement to get to know ourselves.

    195: Identity Alchemy: What I Learned From My First Big Photo Job

    10/03/2021 Duración: 16min

    “At the beginning, I didn’t even feel worthy to work with a brand like Nike.” In today's episode of Onken Radio, I’m going to share with you some of my history and a story about my path during the deconstruction phase of my life. I’ve been working on a lot of identity alchemy projects recently and this means that I've been deconstructing things about my past that I don’t necessarily want to deconstruct. I've been mulling over what it really means to become better versions of ourselves, why there's no such thing as a professional misstep, and how knowing who you don't want to be can help you on your journey to finding out who you do want to be. I've also been unpacking the impact of my first big job and the struggles I went through afterward. Landing a huge gig can be a great confidence booster, but if that immediate success isn't instantly followed by a slew of new and greater successes, your path forward can become daunting. Learning all of this has helped me to create the facets of my upcoming Identity Alc

    194: Dr. G – Healing the Body & Mind to Create with Soul

    24/02/2021

    “The answer to us is not an algorithm; it is so much more complex than that.” On this episode on ONKEN Radio, we have my man Dr. Christian Gonzalez in the house. Going by the name Dr. G, he is a holistic doctor and oncologist with his own private practice and he even has his own podcast called Heal Thyself where he does product reviews and goes into detail about his journey to heal himself over the years. Today we are talking about healing the body and mind to create with soul. We dive into so many exciting topics from the act of creating to how chronic low-grade stress negatively affects people and how Dr. G got involved in holistic medicine. Dr. Christian Gonzalez shares why Traditional Chinese Medicine has too much influence over peoples’ health today, why nature is important for our health, and what a constant state of fear can do to the body.

    “The magic happens when we’ve created a container around it.” - Nick Onken Hello, fellow earthlings — welcome back to another episode of ONKEN RADIO (formerly NION Radio), the podcast where we explore the world of creativity, consciousness, and everything in between to help you alchemize your life to its fullest expression!  A Creative Alchemist is someone who alchemizes their inner world to create a more creative expression of their outer world — and to do that, they have to be dedicated to living a life in full-color. In this podcast, I want to share some concepts on how to activate that Creative Alchemist that’s inside all of you. Together, we will distill complex spiritual practices so that you can deepen your creative flow and create beautiful things.  What I’m going to share with you today is something that I’ve been practicing for many years, and I’m just now becoming aware of what it actually means for the creative process. It’s a method I call “curating your containers.” We have so many container

He is in the business of helping people find the world of freedom — which is his main product — on the other side of the constraints of their subconscious. How does he do it?

    “The universe is going to throw you cosmic bricks and they’re going to get bigger and bigger if you don’t listen to them.” Hey, guys, welcome back to ONKEN RADIO (previously NION Radio), the podcast where we explore the body, mind, and soul of the creative entrepreneur. It’s my goal to help you take your creativity, business, and life to the next level. I’m so glad you’re joining me on this journey! Part of the journey I’ve been on in the last few months is consolidating my personal brand. Don’t worry — photography is, and will always be, a part of my work. But, if you follow me, you know I’ve been getting my hands dirty with a lot of other creative ventures, which include making hats, painting murals, and recording this podcast. These new endeavors are the result of the spiritual journey I’ve taken over the last few years to awaken deeper levels of my creativity and consciousness. See, I believe that as we become a more true and complete version of ourselves, our work — our art — also reaches a more true

    27/05/2020 Duración: 15min

    “We get addicted to scrolling, to checking Facebook, to checking our text messages, to the point where we are actually doing nothing.” Today I want to dive into something that I’m calling The Dopamine Experiment. I had never done it before, but now I've done it a few times over the past couple of weeks and I'm hooked -- and this experiment goes way beyond a digital detox! If you’re anything like me, you’ve been struggling to focus at work ever since social media burst into our lives. My mind is always searching for that hit of dopamine. And we get addicted to scrolling. Having some extra time at home during the quarantine, I knew that this could be the perfect time to try out this reset plan. There are a few options to choose from with varying levels of strictness, so you can spend some time deciding which option is best for you to start with, and we talk about those options in today's episode. Listen in to learn about the benefits dopamine, what the three levels of a dopamine detox consist of, and why thi

    "If you fight for your limitations, you get to keep them." Today's exciting episode was produced in conjunction with the magazine Undo-Ordinary, and we have an exceptional returning guest, the fabulous Jim Kwik. We last did a podcast episode with Jim about four or five years ago already, so we were thrilled to sit him down to dive into his 20+ years spent as a kind of brain coach as well as going in-depth about his new book, "Limitless". In today's episode, Jim talks about how chronic stress affects the brain, ways to create more self-awareness, and why kindness is so important.

    “A lot of spiritual awakening is questioning reality.” Hello everybody! I am sending my sincerest wishes that you are all happy and healthy and safe wherever you are in this big beautiful world of ours! I know it is a super stressful time for all of us and so I wanted to share an amazing conversation that I had recently to take your mind off of things for a little bit, so on this week's episode, we catch up with the ever-fabulous Aaron Doughty at his amazing space in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada. Aaron, as you probably already know, is a Youtuber and I have to say absolutely love what he brings to the world through this medium. I suppose that what I love most about his content is that he talks about everything spiritual -- you all know that is my jam! In our chat, we go in deep on topics like our own spiritual awakening, meditation tactics, and synchronicity as a by-product of the way reality works. Listen in as Aaron Doughty and I discuss self-love, the definition of alignment, and how to open up and be comforta

    25/03/2020 Duración: 20min

    “We have to learn to assess what is, shift our perspective, move forward, and do what we can to help other people.” Today I want to talk about what is happening now: the Coronapocalypse! Things are not as they once were. I have been seeking ways to live a deeper and more soulful life for as long as I can remember. And how does this relate to our current state of emergency? Survival to creation is something we feel on a daily basis that has been amplified during these scary times. There are three things being threatened: our health, our wealth, and our families. While I am worried about myself, I am much more worried about my family -- and I know I am not alone. A few future jobs of mine have already been canceled and this is happening across the board. It is a good time to take a step back and reassess. It is a great time to address and work on your coping methods. For example, one coping method that I have used in the past and continue to use is breathwork. I talk more in-depth about this practice in Epis

    186: You Are Not Your Human

    11/03/2020 Duración: 11min

    “Maybe this should be called ‘Living Your Meat Suit.’” This week we are continuing to unpack the list I made towards the end of 2019 on the 21 Things I Learned This Year. Our last episode was on the healing power of psychedelics and this really led me into a space of deeper understanding on the topic that we're going into detail about today: you are not your human. It may sound like a bizarre concept at first, but lately, I have been driving down this road of consciousness and spirituality. You are your consciousness, your spirit, your soul — whatever you want to call it. You are so much more than simply your body and that can be a difficult distinction to make. Listen in to learn what life is like after taking psychedelics, what keeps us from experiencing joy, and how to separate your spirit from your body.

    26/02/2020 Duración: 19min

    “I was on this rocket ship out of my body and into the universe and I found myself amongst the stars.” This week we're going far out, guys. As you probably know by now, I did a podcast episode at the end of last year about the 21 Things I Learned This Year. This year, we are dedicating one entire episode to each point on that list and this week, we're on number three: the healing power of psychedelics. A few years ago I went through a dark time. During that time I lost so much drive and I was searching for meaning in my life, so I began my first foray into the mystical world of psychedelic drugs and plant medicines. The first one I tried was DMT and since then I've also had experiences with ayahuasca and psilocybin mushrooms. You might recall that I talked about All Things Mushrooms & Creativity with Tero Isokauppila, the founder of Four Sigmatic, a food and beverage company that specializes in mushroom-based drinks. I also spent an episode with Gerry Powell discussing How Plant Medicine Can Change Your Lif

    19/02/2020 Duración: 56min

    “So much of the population just doesn’t care enough about sleep.” This week's episode is all about one of my favorite pasttimes: sleep! I am super stoked to talk about this topic because I am all about hacking my sleep. I sat down with Todd and Tara Youngblood, a married couple from Charlotte, North Carolina who are the inventors of the chiliPAD, the most genius revolutionary thing that I have experienced. What is it? Haven't you heard? The chiliPAD is, simply put, a cooling system for your bed. Well, Tara calls herself a sleep geek and she put all of that geekiness into her new book, Reprogram Your Sleep. We talk all about how to get better sleep, how the chiliPAD works, and some of her favorite sleep facts, like what is happening to your body when you are lucid dreaming. Listen in to hear Todd and Tara Youngblood explain how to figure out your sleep switch, how sleep really works, and why temperature matters when you sleep.

    “If you’re going through a dark time, know that this, too, shall pass.” While making this podcast, it has been good practice for me to step out of my comfort zone and I am actually really enjoying working on these subconscious blocks that I have always around public speaking. And that makes me really happy. I am always working to become a better version of myself and that's what today's episode is all about. As you may or may not know, I did a podcast at the end of 2019 about the 21 Things I Learned This Year that people loved so I wanted to spend some more time unpacking that list. Today's topic is super important to me, as it helped me to pull myself out of a dark and difficult time that I was struggling through a few years ago. It is this simple mantra: this too shall pass. Listen in to today's episode to learn what a dark night of the soul is, what you can do to help yourself out of a difficult time, and how podcasts can help you along your journey to realizing that this too shall pass.

    “We’re not just working on the physical body itself, we’re working with the person’s humanity.” On today's episode, we sat down for an in-depth chat with Aaron Alexander, host of the Align Podcast and an expert in movement therapy. Aaron recently published the book The Align Method: 5 Movement Principles for a Stronger Body, Sharper Mind, and Stress-Proof Life to encourage more people to see physical exercise as one facet of their regular lives, rather than a once-daily routine punishment. We had plenty to talk about, from the relationship your senses have to your physiology and how to define trauma to the high costs of self-care. We also discuss each other's egos, my greatest fears, and why Aaron is so skeptical of gurus. Listen in to our conversation to learn what the Alignment Method is, how to change your perception of pain, and why Nick started his popular podcast.

    29/01/2020 Duración: 13min

    “One of the trifecta of the things that I’m interested in exploring is creativity, consciousness, and culture.” Today I'm doing a super sweet solo episode on a vitally important topic: creating yourself. But first, before you tuck into today's episode, be sure to listen to Episode 178. I made a list of things I learned in 2019 and I am going to devote an episode to breaking down each of them. Today we're breaking down the idea that you should never stop creating yourself and diving into the multitude of ways that I continue to learn each day. Learning is such an ongoing process and it takes work -- a lot of work -- to keep that ball rolling. It may not always come easy, but it is certainly always worth it. So how do I do it? And how can you do it? For starters, I have cultivated a group of people that I look up to, and thus, can look to for advice. These people helped me out of a dark time that I went through a few years ago and they have put me on a healthier, more well-rounded path to personal growth thro

It’s 2020 -- the year of vision and getting clear on where I’m going and what I’m creating, so today I'm sitting down with Jason Harris.

    08/01/2020 Duración: 15min

    “New Year’s resolutions are just trash.” It's a new year! And, for many of us, with each new year comes the desire to turn over a new leaf and start fresh. To create yourself in the best way possible, you have to do the deep work and really investigate your life -- and a new year is the perfect excuse to do just that! There’s a delicate balance between keeping your feet on the ground and your head in the clouds. And it’s important for both the creative side of your life and for the business side, but you also have to set your intentions without getting too attached to the results. Today I really want to talk about goal setting and intention setting for the year. I will share my method for doing so as well as the personal goals that I am setting for myself. On today's show, we're going over the ways to set and prioritize your goals for the new year, how to balance work with pleasure, and how to balance those goals with reality.
