Applying the Ancient Wisdom of Apollo to your Life in the Modern World

The Oracle at Delphi was a focal point of the ancient world. While many of the superstitious elements of the ancient world are now far behind us, some of their axioms and self-reflective discoveries are still relevant today. In this video I will discuss two saying attributed to the Temple of Apollo at Delphi: γνῶθι σεαυτόν- know thyself; and μηδὲν ἄγαν - nothing in excess. These two saying can provide us with a great foundation for consider how we live our lives and what we should do in life. With some self reflection, we can also consider ways that we can make ourselves better, and in the process improve our lives dramatically.

While this video provides advice for self improvement, it should in no way take the place of professional psychiatric or medical treatments. If you are feeling at all mentally unwell, self diagnosis and self treatment is never a good idea. You should consult a medical or psychiatric professional in person and seek out help tailored to your specific condition.

Is Biohacking Bad? Ancestral Living Vs. Modern Science: Should We Return To Our Roots?

Listen to the full episode here

My life is a little bit...strange. As an immersive journalist, self-experimenter and self-professed “biohacker”, I do relatively unconventional things to upgrade my body and brain. For example, I have this blood glucose monitor installed in my arm. It monitors my blood sugar 24-7. I wear a cognition-enhancing laser light helmet at work during the day, and stand naked in front of a giant red light panel while I’m replying to emails. I give myself weekly IV’s full of a cocktail of special vitamins. I’ve also had the fat sucked from my back and the marrow from my bones to concentrate my own stem cells, and had surgery to have these cells placed into every joint of my body and mainlined into my bloodstream. I have tens of thousands of dollars of advanced medical technologies housed in my basement. You get the idea. I’m not normal. But as a man who spends much of my life immersed in the modern health and longevity movement, attending anti-aging conferences and researching all the newfangled things people are doing these days to upgrade their bodies, I often survey the landscape of fringe supplements, biohacks, and anti-aging technologies and wonder… ...would our ancestors laugh at us? When it comes to living a long and healthy life, would their ancestral wisdom beat our modern science, hands down? After all, despite our modern infatuation with longevity and optimized bodies and brains, we are not strikingly healthier or longer-living than previous generations. In today's podcast, adapted from my recent TedX Coeur D' Alene Talk, I'll tackle this topic in detail. You'll discover: -Why modern medicine, for all its marvels, may not be all it's cracked up to be...4:10 CDC reports life expectancy has dropped 3 consecutive years. It's a false assertion to assume we'll live significantly longer than previous generations Life expectancy is calculated by insurance, mutual fund companies as number of years after retirement, not after birth. We would be seeing many more 100+ year olds; not the case We have a better chance of surviving childhood (disease, etc.) but not necessarily living longer. Our ancestors didn't always live nasty, brutish, short lives -Popular current fads to extend human lifespan...7:43  Vampire therapy, parabiosis (young blood) Ancient Greeks considered to blood a magic elixir Pliny the Elder, Homer, wrote about the healing efficacy of others' blood GDF11, a primary anti-aging proteins activated by young blood transfusion, is increased by oxytocin Stem cells More accessible than in years past My biological age dropped from 37 to 20 after my first stem cell transfusion Men's Health article on stem cells featuring Ben Outside Magazine article featuring Ben Dietary adjustments to increase/enhance stem cells Food compounds, superfoods: colostrum, aloe vera, etc. Cryopreservation Modern day mummification  Metformin slightly modified version of a compound that was discovered in the French lilac plant (goat's rue) Wired Magazine: Forget the Blood of Teens Adverse side effects: Lactic acidosis Mitochondrial disruption Vitamin B12 deficiency Increase risk for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Natural alternatives: Bitters, herbs, wild plants, bitter melon Rapamycin Inhibits excessive activation of immune cells via MTOR Upregulation of cellular cleanup mechanisms called autophagy Increases risk of infectious diseases and diabetes Natural alternatives: spermidine Intermittent fasting Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) Levels markedly decrease with age Natural alternatives: Raw honey Fermented foods Sauna sessions Pau d Arco tea  -Supplements and medicines used by our ancestors...19:25 -Natural ways to enhance our vision...22:45 Ancestors trained their vision; they didn't look at screens all day Plant compounds known to enhance vision: Zeaxanthin Carotenoids (kale, spinach, bell peppers) Innate ability to see in the absence of light or even sight -Natural hearing enhancement...24:45 Hunter gatherers were better equipped, physically, with their ears; perhaps because of time spent outdoors attuned to the frequencies of nature Turnip greens, collard greens, parsley, mustard greens, broccoli, etc. shown to decrease risk of hearing loss Adjusting your diet would be far cheaper and less convenient than what some self-experimenting types are doing (ear implants) -The natural sixth sense within us to navigate to True North...26:42 We possess a tiny amount of magnetite in our ethmoid bone (located between the eyes in the nasal cavity) Researchers suggest this built-in compass made hunting, migration, etc. possible We have perhaps lost this ancestral skill with the advent of road maps, GPS navigation -Natural ways to enhance our brains...27:30 Walnuts are rich in omega fatty acids, melatonin Lion's mane mushroom Bacopa flower (memory) Green tea (cognition) Psilocybin All of the above have been used for centuries, if not millennia -Natural

Spring 2016 Dean’s Craft of Teaching Seminar with Alum of the Year Peter Iver Kaufman

The quarterly Dean's Craft of Teaching Seminar is the flagship seminar of the Craft of Teaching program, centered on issues of course design and institutional context.

Abstract: The humanities, scholars and educators continue to sense, are increasingly associated on college campuses with pre-professional requirements, a warm-up act to the real task of preparing students for a range of existing and tightly specified careers. The data suggest that the curricular presence of the humanities (core courses; gen-ed requirements; concentrations or majors) is being accordingly and considerably reduced. Yet it may be suggested -- not without controversy -- that preparation in the humanities serves not only its own edifying ends but also the formation of sensibilities and skills without which the professions are severely impoverished. In light of these problems, Prof. Peter Kaufman (Jepson School of Leadership Studies, University of Richmond) reinvented himself at the age of 63, leaving an R1 where he taught undergraduate courses in the history of Christianity and graduate courses in religious studies (from late antiquity to early modern Europe) to engage the issues represented in the materials included for this seminar, and to continue developing what could be called an extra-curricular avocation to promote the indispensability of the humanities to the practice of leadership in our changing society. This seminar confronts the formidable challenges facing the profession, in order to consider the role that Swift Hall graduates have the opportunity to play in stewarding the future of the humanities.

Peter Iver Kaufman (PhD, 1975) is the 2016 Divinity School Alumnus of the Year. He studies the political cultures of late antique, medieval, and early modern Europe and North Africa. He has written nine books and more than 40 articles on authority, religious conflict, and literary history, which have appeared in, among other journals, Leadership and the Humanities, Journal of Late Antiquity, Harvard Theological Review, Archiv für Reformationsgeschichte, and Journal of the American Academy of Religion. He is editor-in-chief of Religions and editor of a series of monographs on the religion around iconic figures from Dante and Dürer to Virginia Woolf, Billie Holiday, and Bob Dylan. He has also edited five books, ranging from studies of charisma to others on leadership and Elizabethan culture.

The Craft of Teaching (CoT) is the Divinity School's program of pedagogical development for its graduate students, dedicated to preparing a new generation of accomplished educators in the field of religious studies. We bring together Divinity School faculty, current students, and an extensive alumni network of decorated teachers to share our craft and to advance critical reflection on religious studies pedagogy
