Eric Grace is a kind of an angel. And he means that more literally than can you possibly imagine. He also estimates that 40% of us are in the same boat as him.


This provenance is not always a blessing. It comes with challenges in adapting to life on Earth and mixing with the more Terran souls.


Is that a challenging cosmology for you? It was for me. But Eric is also a pragmatist and grounds all his angelic talk in working with people to help them feel comfortable and use their gifts for the greater good.


We also talk about his many adventures through the wilderness of isolation, community, and drama on the fringes of society.


It’s thoroughly deep, thoroughly entertaining, and addresses head-on the questions every human has about meaning, purpose, and belonging.

*** About The Ten Thousand Heroes Show ***


Why are you here?

What is this short and fragile life about?


These questions have easy answers in traditional cultures. You listen to the myths and stories of your elders and nod along.

But once we’re exposed to the chaos and diversity of the larger world (#thanksglobalization), the simple narratives of our ancestors suddenly seem silly and unattractive.


Rationality leads us into a desert of meaning.

But it turns out that we left something important behind: Purpose.


The Ten Thousand Heroes Show aims to restore our collective sense of meaning and fulfillment through demystifying purpose.


We present empirical techniques and rational arguments for taking Purpose seriously, while leaving room for fun and mystery.


And we interview inspiring humans along the way, each of whom has a clear sense of Purpose, and whose sense of Purpose has allowed their success.

The Ten Thousand Heroes Show is brought to you by Momentum Lab.

I normally refer to Momentum Lab as an experiment-based coaching program or a goal accelerator.

But it’s beyond that. It’s a deep investigation into Purpose, Vision, and what it takes to achieve our goals in every area of life.

If you’re interested in falling in love with who you are, what you’re doing, or what you’re surrounded with, there’s two roads:

  1. Accepting what is

  2. Transforming your situation

We help you do both.
