Intersections

Hitendra's Intersections podcast seeks to dissolve boundaries — between science and spirituality, profit and purpose, East and West, inner and outer, work and home — so we can realize our full potential in life and leadership.

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.
