    Mastering Microdosing with Paul Austin

    Mastering Microdosing with Paul Austin

    The use of psychedelics allows for healing and transformation. However, a lot of people shy away from it primarily because of the stigma associated with it. That’s why education and training are important when we talk about psychedelics. The use of psychedelics is a skill just like you’re learning how to play jiu-jitsu or you’re learning how to cook.
    If you’re interested in how psychedelics can impact and bring healing to your life, a great starting point is something called microdosing. The beauty of it is you don't need to be as worried about every little thing having to be perfect because you can just take a little bit and see how you feel. You can start to calibrate how you feel with it, without having to risk a bad acid trip.
    In today’s conversation, we talk all about psychedelics and microdosing with Paul Austin, author of the book, Mastering Microdosing: How to Use Sub-Perceptual Psychedelics to Heal Trauma, Improve Performance, and Transform Your Life. Paul shares his knowledge and insights into psychedelics and microdosing, their benefits, and some things you need to know about!

    In this episode, you will hear:
    Paul’s journey with psychedelics and microdosing The benefits of psychedelics and microdosing The history of psychedelics Who is microdosing for? Things you will learn from the book, Mastering Microdosing Other tips on microdosing Two fundamental ways to work with psychedelics Subscribe and Review

    Transforming Healthcare Through Digital Therapeutics with Lyle Maxson

    Transforming Healthcare Through Digital Therapeutics with Lyle Maxson

    Imagine a world of virtual reality where people are healed of their illnesses and any kind of pain is gone. We’re no longer far from the future because that’s actually happening right now with the evolution of digital therapeutics. It’s beyond those health monitors found on your watch.
    In this episode, Lyle Maxson invites us to explore the world of “technodelic.” Lyle and his team at Entheo Digital are now creating a transformative gaming experience that teaches things that you would learn from psychedelics such as mindfulness, how to surrender and activating your parasympathetic response through vocal toning.
    Listen in and discover how Lyle is turning digital medicine into a modality for transformation through gaming, and changing the stigma around technology as something that pulls us away from being healthy into something that potentially transforms mental health.
    In this episode, you will hear:
    The genesis of their transformational video game Lyle’s transition from music festivals to the psychedelics space Things you’re going to learn from Level 3 digital therapeutics What is benevolent technology? Why VR is the most human way to interact with technology Lyle’s vision around the future of digital therapeutics Subscribe and Review

    Connecting the Golden Thread of Humanity with Jeff Scult

    Connecting the Golden Thread of Humanity with Jeff Scult

    We live in a society where we’re taught that our clothes are disposable. 80 billion new pieces of clothes are made every year and 87% will wind up in an incinerator landfill within 18 months. Out of that 87%, only 3% are made of sustainable fibers, which means there’s massive soil toxification that’s also leaching to your waterways. 30% of the microplastics in the ocean come from the clothes we not only toss but also wash as microplastics are leached into our washing machines that go into the waterways.

    In this episode, Jeff Scult, founder of One Golden Thread, shares the impetus behind this sustainable clothing brand that wasn’t initially set out to be a clothing company. Rather it was actually a physical manifestation of his full self-expression over his life's journey. It was his calling to share the philosophy that despite all the curve balls thrown at us, we are each golden inside – and this simple truth is what connects us together as a golden thread.

    Jeff also shares a pragmatic marketing lesson that he learned from his dog and the transformative workshop that he attended, which was also the precursor of One Golden Thread.

    In this episode, you will hear:
    Jeff’s experience with alchemy through his dog Seeing things from an abundance mindset over a scarcity mindset The spiritual cause behind his dis-ease The precursor for one golden thread How to claim your golden voice Giving yourself the permission to shift and pivot to your purpose Not a story about “me,” but about “we” One golden thread as a manifestation of self-expression Regeneration, instead of sustainability Subscribe and Review
