    Ep. 37 Leaping with Trust: A Blueprint for TRUST 2.0 When Facing Change Is Scary & Emotionally Painful with Laura Dawn

    TRUST 2.0 When the Going Gets Tough.
    There is a grand restructuring unfolding on the planet right now. This is a time where we are being called to face our personal truth. When we choose to step into deeper alignment with this truth, whatever that may be, it often requires facing big changes as we let go of who we thought we were and step forward into who we are choosing to be.
    Facing these changes can require an enormous amount of letting go and often bring with them a lot of upheaval. As many of us find ourselves on the precipice peering into the great unknown, we need to learn how to trust the deeper levels of restructuring that are unfolding for us both individually and collectively.
    And that's what this episode is all about; learning to trust in the great unknown. I share my perspective on what it means to move from trust 1.0 to trust 2.0 and how this impacts the way we live and the way we lead.

    Ep. 36 Prophecy, Prayer, Truth & Authenticity with Spiritual Teacher and Vision Keeper, Grandmother Jyoti

    These are trying times. According to the Kogi prophecy, we are collectively moving through 13 years they call the great cleanse. The Kogi’s say that the great ending will fall into the beginning in 2026.
    In this episode renowned spiritual teacher and vision keeper, Grandmother Jyoti shares remarkable stories that help us understand the wisdom within these prophecies and the power of walking in prayer and points to the necessity of stepping into alignment with our authenticity as this is a time of reckoning with our personal truth.
    Jyoti was one of the founders of the Center for Sacred Studies - and was also the founding member and convener of the Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers.
    Jyoti considers herself to be a vision keeper and a seed keeper, which she talks more about. And she shares that after the council of 13 grandmothers took on a life of its own, she received a new vision, a new seed that has led her to launching a project called the Fountain and its mission is to restore an economic model that is based on reciprocity and collaboration guided by Nature and the Sacred.

    Ep. 34: Becoming an Addiction Recovery & Psychedelic Integration Coach with founder of Being True to You, Deanne Adamson

    Ep. 34: Becoming an Addiction Recovery & Psychedelic Integration Coach with founder of Being True to You, Deanne Adamson

    What does it take to be a psychedelic integration coach? What core competencies do transformational coaches need to cultivate and what kind of training do people need to support people with the integration of their psychedelic experiences?
    Deanne Adamson is the founder and president of Being True To You, an online transformational coaching organization that has certified over 800 holistic addiction recovery and psychedelic integration coaches since 2010. Deanne's ‘Transformational Recovery’ model extends support across one's greater journey of healing and growth, helping people integrate psychedelic experiences to ensure lasting results.
    In this episode, Deanne shares her journey and how she found herself birthing her company Being True to You. She talks about the nature of addiction and how it’s really not what people think. We also talk about the importance of cultivating your own guiding principles, core values, moral compass, and core competencies for integration coaches, as well as what people should know before moving into this space, We also touched on her take on some of the more controversial topics, and we also touch on the bizarre reality of censorship.

    My Instagram Account was Deleted: Please Help Me Get It Back

    Hi Friends,
    My Instagram account @LiveFreeLauraD has been deleted and down for almost 2 weeks now, and I'd love your support in getting it back.
    I don't know why it's been taken down, but I do know censorship is on the rise. One of my last posts just happened to be about how they've now banned #microdosing hashtag. (Which I think is ridiculous.)
    Please follow these instructions to help me get my instagram account back:
    On your personal IG account go to settings
    Then help report a problem
    Then something isn't working
    Then write @livefreelaurad account got taken down and this is a mistake.
    I would so appreciate your help with this!
    Live Free, Laura D

    Ep.33 What it Takes to Lead & Launch an Unprecedented Venture In the Psychedelic Space with Joshua White

    Ep.33 What it Takes to Lead & Launch an Unprecedented Venture In the Psychedelic Space with Joshua White

    Holding a vision for something that doesn’t yet exist and taking inspired action to transmute that inner vision into reality is true creative leadership.
    Joshua White had an idea to launch the first-ever Psychedelic Peer Support Phone Line in the US and dedicated himself to making that vision a reality.
    He is now the Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Fireside Project, which operates the first-ever national peer support line specifically aimed at helping people navigate psychedelic experiences. Fireside has now been featured in major publications like the Rolling Stones Magazine, Forbes, and has prominent people like Michael Pollen tweeting about his support for the project.
    Joshua deeply believes in the power of peer support and in the role of support lines as key components of an equitable community mental health ecosystem.
    In this candid conversation, Joshua shares what it takes as a leader to launch an unprecedented project and the key importance of holding a “bigger than you” vision to get you through the tougher times.
