Intersections

Hitendra's bi-monthly webcast, Intersections, explores what paths we can take to realize our full potential in all we do in life and leadership. The webcast operates at the intersection of science and spirituality, profit and purpose, East and West, our inner world and outer world, and business success and social impact.

Along with leading researchers and pioneers in their field —
Richard Davidson, Apolo Ohno, Angela Duckworth, Mick Ebeling, Hilaree Nelson, Arthur Brooks — Hitendra strives to bring a mathematician's rigor and a truth-seeker's spirit to some of today's most vexing questions about authenticity, success, leadership and human potential.

Join him in exploring how to cultivate inner mastery for outer impact on YouTube or listen to the podcast on Spotify, Apple and Google Podcasts below.
