This week's guest on Being Human is Dr Will Van Derveer. Will is the founder and medical director of the Integrative Psychiatric Healing Center where he has practised integrative psychiatry for 15 years.


After discovering that his conventional psychiatric training was inadequate to answer many of his patients' challenges, he took an entire year out to meditate. Finding that meditation alone was also not the answer; he began investigating psychedelic therapy to resolve the root causes of common problems such as depression, anxiety, and insomnia.


We talk:


The power of using MDMA in therapy

Will's ayahuasca experience

The importance of sleep

How meditation is not always enough

'Weirding' your way to healing
