    Episode 35 - All Things Healing, Sexual Health, Integration, and Soberity.

    Welcome to your weekly dose of The Psychedelic Psychologist. This week we meet with Danny who is integrating his relationship with his addiction to sex; as well as, the memories of his psychedelic experiences.

    In Danny's story you hear a great deal of the importance of the evolution of integration. It can change over time. The practical approach of continuing to look at all the different themes that have come up in the psychedelic sessions is always important. He shares a great deal of insight from how to look at oneself, process a psychedelic experience, and understand when to step away from any non-ordinary states.

    Danny shares a remarkable story of resilience thru ideas of de-personalization and feeling stuck. Yet Danny provides us with a great reminder of the value of trusting in the process.

    Episode 33 - The Big Change. Really Looking At Yourself

    Welcome to your weekly dose of The Psychedelic Psychologist. This week I have a deep conversation about healing addiction, finding hope and looking for redemption. Adam shares a poignant testimony about a long history of betrayal and addiction leaving him lost. Then he started processing and preparing for a psychedelic session. All things changed!

    Adam is clear it was an instant transformation; however, he is very aware of the importance preparation and integration play in order to continue keep his family, relationship and mental health grounded. He describes being in his body and not being distracted by his mind and the intrusive thoughts that have been brought on by addiction and lies.

    Adam is a true testament to healing and facing the fears we all have.

    Episode 31 - Intention Setting With No Intention: Soul Traveling

    Episode 31 - Intention Setting With No Intention: Soul Traveling

    Welcome to your weekly dose of The Psychedelic Psychologist. This week I go off script, and in part one of a two part segment we meet Tyler who is preparing for a session. We talk about his intentional setting; specifically, how he starts to remove himself from daily activities. First by feeling tired he starts the process of going internal. He explains the feeling of his "souls" desire to fly. We are candid in our conversation around the difference of this being in a reflective state and not depression or suicidal thoughts.

    Tyler paints a rather interesting perspective with his intention setting, the more he has created his ritual using these medicines the more he is finding value in not setting a clear intention. Rather he shares the importance of clearing the body, heart, mind, and spirit.

    Episode 30 - Learning From Our Younger Self, The Healing Wisdom.

    Welcome to your weekly dose of The Psychedelic Psychologist. This week we hear from Anton who recently found psychedelics. His intention is for deep personal healing around his depression. He shares with us how coming to this work new feels, and having had two experiences what it's like going into it with a little more understanding the second time around. Just coming off the most recent experience Anton provides an important reminder of the process being a long one; moreover, he is quick to say how valuable it was to have the first one under his belt in order to be a little more prepared with what was to come.

    We are given a beautiful picture into his new frame of reference with his relationship with his children and his wife. Finding some of the key reminders of how to be a father and partner in how he remembers growing up and the relationship he had with his own father. He tells the tale of learning directly from his younger self.

    Anton invites us into a wonderful lesson of how working with psychedelics can give us a new lens into partnering and parenting.
