    Healing in a Toxic Culture: Attachment, Addiction, and Psychedelics ft. Dr. Gabor Maté

    Healing in a Toxic Culture: Attachment, Addiction, and Psychedelics ft. Dr. Gabor Maté

    Post your job for free at LinkedIn.Com/DIVINE.
    Dr. Maté opens up about his own childhood experiences as a Jewish infant in occupied Hungary, where abandonment and trauma shaped his early years and later influenced his relationships with his children and career. Through personal reflection, Morgan shares her own experiences of growing up with a father whose demanding career kept him often away, and her tendency towards workaholism. She shares how she intends to do things differently with her own child.
    As the discussion unfolds, Dr. Maté delves into his belief that we are living in a toxic culture, where stress and societal pressures take a toll on our mental and physical health. He highlights the direct link between our minds and bodies, particularly evident in marginalized groups facing systemic racism. Dr. Maté and Morgan discuss how it is in this context that parents are expected to raise children, and how cultural parenting norms often contradict intuitive caregiving practices, driven by economic necessities rather than emotional well-being.
    The episode wraps up with an eye-opening discussion on the potential of psychedelics in healing trauma, with Dr. Maté sharing the emerging research and the need for better access to these powerful tools in mental health care.

    Purpose Over Panic: Chrisette Michele on Creativity, Healing, and Pushing Culture Forward

    This week, Morgan DeBaun is joined by Grammy award-winning recording artist and new podcast host Chrisette Michele for a candid conversation on creativity, purpose, and pushing culture forward.
    In the episode, Chrisette opens up about acting out of panic versus purpose, drawing from personal experience and her highly criticized response to the 2016 election results that she says came from a place of panic. She shares how she navigates artistic responsibility surrounding how her creative efforts are received.
    Morgan and Chrisette explore the shifting dynamics of social media and virality, recognizing that it has become less predictable what kind of content will resonate. They note a move towards vulnerability culture rather than disagreement and controversy, and discuss what this shift means for the ability to have important conversations on public forums.
    Chrisette shares her thoughts on engaging in political conversations, shedding light on the silent oppressed minority and challenging the notion that getting loud is the only way to create impact. They discuss the complexities of intersectional identities when it comes to speaking out and being received by others.
    Tune in, and make sure you are subscribed to The Journey as well as Chrisette's new podcast, Come Back Sis. If you enjoyed the conversation, leave a rating and review (let's get The Journey ranked on Spotify!)
