Mental health is a huge and growing problem, and psychedelic medicine is suddenly on a fast track toward legalization. Ayahuasca is a traditional medicine used in the Amazon for hundreds of years as part of healing ceremonies. Its use has been largely confined to retreat settings, but as mental health professionals seek new options for treating depression, anxiety, and PTSD among other conditions, many are looking to the past to inform the future of psychiatric medicine. My guest on this week's podcast is at the forefront of the movement. Listen and learn: About the curious combination of plants that create this drug Set and setting considerations for traditional use Legal and safety concerns Ceremonial vs. clinical use The “pill for an ill” risk vs. the reality of potential benefits Learn more Simon's Site ABOUT OUT GUEST Dr. Simon Ruffell is a psychiatrist known for his research on ayahuasca and study of curanderismo. Since 2016, he has collaborated with Indigenous communities in the Amazon basin to investigate the traditional use of ayahuasca and its effects on mental health. Like the Show?

How might psychedelics, also known as plant medicine, revolutionize our approach to mental health by offering swift healing for lifelong trauma and PTSD for people in traumatic jobs such as police officers without the need for prolonged traditional therapy? What are the legal ramifications of growing and consuming plant medicine? Asking questions like these is what led to this three part series on Food Heals where we are discussing how plant medicine can help us heal. In this series you are hearing brand new interviews with leading experts in the field of psychedelics who share their personal healing journey as well as how you can access the power of plants to heal yourself as well - Maybe you heard out last episode with Derek the founder Pachamama Sanctuary, and you are ready for your own Ayahuasca retreat or perhaps you want to grow plant medicine at home like Paul taught us in the first episode in the series. Or perhaps you'll be inspired by today's guest current clothing designer and former police officer Nick Motycka who healed 15 years worth of job-related trauma. Nick Motycka was a police officer who was suffering from job related trauma and PTSD. Traditional therapies didn't work, so he explored plant medicine. In a breakthrough session, he processed 15 years of trauma in one day, shifting from severe PTSD to no longer meeting the criteria for a diagnosis. His mind was blown. Now free from trauma's effects, Nick resigned from law enforcement, aligning his life with his values, and founded a clothing company, Flow State Designs. Flow State Designs isn't just about clothes; it's a lifestyle. Nick focuses on using the best textiles, made by workers earning fair wages in Canada, minimizing environmental impact. His hope is that the brand enhances well-being and helps individuals find their unique flow in life. Thank You to Our Sponsors!

Welcome to Classic Skeptic Metaphysicians! We're re-releasing some of our back catalog so that these gems can be re-discovered!This week: The Life-Changing Benefits of BreathworkBreath work is usually associated with yoga. Its something that people do to help them in many facets of their lives on a very physical level. But there is a type of breathwork whose benefits go so far beyond what is typically thought of in the practice, that it will literally connect you with the ALL of the Universe. At least, that's what this week's guest says.1"The universe loves you. I mean, everything is actually working out for your favor. It's a matter of seeing it that way. There's so much available to you. All the beings that you cannot see are standing behind you, pushing you forward. And the more you trust in that, the happier you're going to be and the easier things will get."--Michael HemmatAbout our guest:Born in Seattle in 1982, he was awarded an M.S. in Optical Engineering in 2009.He then left the corporate world in 2015 and committed himself to the spiritual path. Trying just about everything, he determined the most efficient way to purge unnecessary information from the body is through breathwork. This medicine has had a profound impact on his life and he loves to share it with others who are ready to embrace the warrior spirit.He claims that his style of breahtwork is just as good, if not better, than things like DMT, Ayahuasca and any psychedelics used to gain enlightenment.Guest Info:Website: warriorbreath.lifeFacebook: @warriorbreathYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/MrKeyanHSkeptic Support the Show:Rate/review Us Here:https://lovethepodcast.com/SkepticMetaphysicians Purchase Merchandise: https://www.skepticmetaphysician.com/store Buy Me A Coffee: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/SkepticMetaphys Connect With The Skeptic Metaphysicians:Website: skepticmetaphysician.comFacebook: @TheSkepticMetaphysicianIG: SkepticMetaphysician_PodcastTik Tok: @skepticmetaphysiciansThis show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5652646/advertisement
Despite their controversial reputation, psychedelics are being widely used by doctors, shamans, retreat leaders, and more across the world to treat trauma and PTSD. Whether it's Psilocybin, Ayahuasca, or another form of plant medicine, rapid healing can occur when using these medicinal plants. So, how do we learn to unlock the rapid healing power of these psychedelics? Imagine addressing lifelong trauma, PTSD, addiction, and more within minutes, without the need for years of traditional therapy. Contemplating questions like these inspired this three-part series on Food Heals, where we discuss the healing power of plant medicine. In this series, you'll hear brand-new interviews with leading experts in the field of psychedelics who share their personal healing journey, as well as how you can access the power of plants to heal yourself. Whether you want to grow medicine at home like Paul taught us last time or go to a retreat center like Derek will tell us about today, there is an option for you to explore if plant medicine is right for you. In the first episode of this series, you heard from Paul Austin, the CEO of Third Wave, a pioneer reshaping our perceptions of psychedelics and guiding on growing your own plant medicine at home. In today's episode, part two of our series, I'm talking to Derek Januszewski, the founder of Pachamama Sanctuary, an Ayahuasca retreat center. He'll share the story of how plant medicine assisted in his journey to overcome childhood abuse and a decade-long battle with addiction. Through intense inner work, extensive engagement with medicine, and countless hours of service, Derek has healed much of his trauma. The spiritual healing he received through plant medicine inspired him to start Pachamama Sanctuary, aiming to help others find their own path to health and happiness. Pachamama Sanctuary, an Ayahuasca center in Southern Maine, was founded in 2019. Since its inception, its mission has been to elevate collective consciousness through the sacrament of Ayahuasca—a tea derived from plants in the Amazon rainforest. It has facilitated profound insights and clarity into past traumas, offering a chance for peace, especially for those grappling with addiction, PTSD, or negative cycles. Stay tuned for part 3, where I speak with former police officer Nick Motycka, who healed 15 years' worth of job-related trauma. He transitioned from being clinically diagnosed with severe PTSD to no longer meeting the criteria for a diagnosis through the use of plant medicine. Thank You to Our Sponsors!

As a U.S. Army Apache helicopter pilot, Adam Marr deployed to Iraq where he flew more than 400 combat hours and was awarded the combat action badge. In 2017, Marr co-authored the best-selling book, "Tales from the Blast Factory” where he shared the challenges his brother, a Green Beret, faced transitioning out of the Army because of his TBI and PTSD injuries sustained in combat. This book was the inspiration for the Academy Award-qualified documentary film Quiet Explosions: Healing the Brain (2020). In this episode, Marr discusses the challenges his brother faced, his own struggles, and his current work as Director of Operations for the Veteran Mental Health Leadership Coalition, a group of more than 45 organizations that advocates for increased research and safe, affordable access to psychedelic medicine and assisted therapies for Veterans and their family members.

In today's episode, I'm speaking with coach and educator Aya Allison, who specializes in psilocybin microdosing. We'll be talking in depth about microdosing—what it is, the science behind it, the latest research in this emerging area of psychedelic medicines, and practical guidance for those considering exploring it as an option. I'm so excited to be digging into this conversation with Aya, who is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in guiding clients through psilocybin protocols safely and effectively. As a mindset coach and microdosing specialist, she is perfectly positioned to provide the public with much-needed education and support around integrating plant medicines into mental healthcare regimens. Given the overwhelming crisis of anxiety, depression, and other psychiatric conditions we currently face—not to mention a general disconnection from our true selves and nature at large—I believe we need every tool at our disposal. Psilocybin and other entheogens clearly have tremendous potential for healing individuals and our society as a whole if used consciously. I'm thrilled we get to have this discussion today. The Growing Interest in Psilocybin Microdosing First I ask Aya to explain more about the growing interest and use of microdosing she's seen lately. She traces when folks started asking her about tiny doses of mushrooms back around 2014-2015, as underground chatter increased among plant medicine circles. Lately more and more people struggling with mood problems have been learning about microdosing magic mushrooms to find relief because meds and therapy haven't helped them. Instead of just getting diagnosed and taking meds with bad side effects, they want to try a natural route of using tiny doses of mushrooms to transform their inner world for the better. Many come to Aya first to learn about this approach and see if it's a fit before moving forward. They have worries about safety, laws, amount to take, and what results could realistically be. Most of all, Aya stresses the importance of fighting ignorance by equipping these psychologically vulnerable yet curious folks with the best knowledge available, empathic support, and community belonging. Random experimenting without proper plans or watching could risk bad outcomes and waste this healing opportunity. The Mental Health Emergency Looking more at why people are considering this, we talk about the total failure of Big Pharma medicine to fix the worsening mental health epidemic with mood disorders, suicide risk, disability, and general disconnect from one's self. This is a crisis everywhere. In America alone, 1 in 5 adults now live with a diagnosable condition; youth depression/anxiety has climbed over 50% since 2020, signaling an alarming future trend if we don't respond effectively. Yet standard treatments fail most people. Psych meds temporarily reduce symptoms at best before 80% relapse within a year, finding their illness even harder to treat after stopping/re-starting them multiple times. Talk therapy changes thinking patterns but doesn't fundamentally transform someone's core being. Clearly a giant gap exists between where we stand today and people living fully whole, happy, peaceful lives no longer dependent on substances or counseling to feel sane, self-love, meaning, and fulfillment. This is exactly the promise of plant medicine like magic mushrooms used wisely under care - to reconnect us with our natural power to heal and feel alive inside. Aya says it helps dissolve the make-believe walls that make us feel separate and sick - so we can remember we are naturally well and whole already. Aya's Personal Journey with Psychedelics When asked what called her to explore this view 7 years ago, she shares bravely about her past battles with heavy depression - planted by childhood trauma and running in her family - which regular medicine failed to fix. Feeling skeptical yet desperate, as a last hope she courageously turned to Ayahuasca, a plant medicine from South America. She describes the shocking rebirth process it caused, making her confront and integrate decades of stored pain and false identities to uncover an indestructible inner light within all people. In an instant, her years-long darkness ended; she felt restored to hope, purpose, freedom and unconditional self-love she'd never known before. She emphasizes preparation was key - had she not focused seriously on self-care, mindfulness, and processing her emotions enough ahead of time, the journey could've overwhelmed rather than freed her. With proper readiness, miraculous healing happens quite naturally. She testifies these plant medicines hold power if someone is called to them. But wise guidance remains crucial for safety. Her quest for truth and multifaceted healing then expanded more formally into shamanism, nature-based spirituality. As she coaches others through change with plant substances now, she increasingly sees intricate links between mental illness, immunity, digestion, nerves, sustainability, psychology and spiritual awakening. Micro vs. Macro Doses of Psilocybin To explain key words she mentioned about dosage levels and experiences, I distinguish between micro and macro doses of mushroom containing psilocybin; share that ceremonial use often means higher, consciousness-altering macro doses while microdosing means taking sub-perceptual amounts for more subtle mental/emotional benefits over time. She agrees a microdose doesn't cause a psychedelic effect. Aya clarifies an actual psychedelic experience kicks in around 2-3 grams of psilocybin. Microdosing is in the range of 50 mg of psilocybin and still results in significant healing of the nervous system. Everyone's sensitivity varies widely though based on brain chemistry, setting, mushroom strength, etc, so effects stay quite individualized and deeply personal. One might not notice changes occurring within initially. But the huge combined feedback on how microdosing psilocybin mushrooms improves thinking, emotional regulation, social skills, creativity and brain communication confirms something special happens for most at proper amounts. It basically fine tunes pathways instead of hijacking them like prescription antidepressants; gently strengthens connections over weeks like bodybuilding rather than suddenly overloading capacity. Just as higher mushroom doses cause temporary altered states of consciousness by impacting brain chemicals, tiny doses still positively influence critical networks, literally rewiring thought patterns, emotional triggers and habitual behaviors slowly over time for the better. And unlike pharmaceuticals, mushroom ingredients develop no physiological addiction or withdrawal. Legality Remains Complex We discuss current policies and regulations concerning growing, accessing and responsible usage of psychedelic containing plants like mushrooms which remain federally prohibited, similarly to how cannabis once was. It is important to understand one's regional legal landscape and penalties. But encouragingly, certain locations decriminalized or introduced bills permitting medical access and research. Overall authorities make psychedelic related cases lowest enforcement priority compared to drugs causing harm. Still banned in the U.S. however, transporting mushrooms across state lines or dosing in public remains completely illegal until policy changes as science compellingly proves therapeutic efficacy. Which means underground access may quietly thrive in some areas as symbolized by native use rituals for communing sacramentally with nature since ancient times. But political winds now shift as pioneering cities pass laws stopping unjust jailing for personal growing/use. Oregon legalized therapy centers; other states put medical access on legislative agendas. We stand at the genesis of a historic paradigm shift around psychedelic therapies. Standard Microdosing Protocols When asked about dosing strategies, Aya shares sage advice she gives people for getting the most from microdosing - like journaling, intention setting, community support or coaching check-ins. Protocol details get debated though across practitioners. James Fadiman who did original microdosing research suggests taking .1g mushroom powder every 3rd day for a month before some days completely off. Compare to Dr. Stametes who likes “stacking” microdoses with bonus lion's mane mushroom chunks for enhanced benefits. Aya personally recommends starting with half doses every other day - or full days off if very sensitive - while journaling changes in bodily sensations, moods, thinking, behaviors or dreams. Continue minimum 10-12 weeks before reevaluating extending the cycle. Natural symptoms may signal slightly higher doses needed. Customizing one's frequency and amount means attentively noticing subtle feedback in concert with professional consultation. Each person sensitively self-calibrates unique embodiment needs meaningfully this way once properly informed. Are Psychedelic Changes Sustainable Long Term? We also discuss doubts whether microdosing induced insights, newfound neural links or behavior shifts last once stopping or dependency develops needing continual mushroom activation. Valid worry; especially when medications often accompany withdrawal symptoms after temporarily subduing symptoms without resolving root causes. But unlike addictive, toxic medications, Aya assures zero evidence suggests any dependency tendency from mushroom-based psilocybin. In fact the opposite - they powerfully curb addictive patterns! The mushrooms basically reset the nervous system, enabling lasting positive changes, not unlike installing new software. The authentic self realized or old traumas released remain available within afterwards too, just maybe needing occasional “tune-ups”. Ultimately they strengthen personal freedom, not replace it. First microdosing trains the brain's pathways until we pedal freely ourselves feeling more able to navigate life and it's challenges. Training Practitioners in Psychedelic Medicine When asking about her educational initiative for healthcare professionals, Aya describes founding Heroic Wellness exactly for this purpose: to develop legal training systems delivering mushroom assisted psychotherapy properly once policy allows clinical practice. This work gets desperately needed today; underground options fail ethics standards as demand balloons for healing support with plant journeys. Without proper set, setting and integration care afterwards however, bad outcomes manifest for the emotionally and energetically sensitive. The outdated disease label and medication fix model totally misses the multidimensional nature of consciousness. More holistic approaches using plant medicine have the potential to help more people. Healing unfolds through RELATIONSHIP nurtured by skillfully attuning to complexity of inner landscapes opened during entheogenic experience. Thus proper presence, gentle guidance and compassion creates optimal conditions for awakening - as the best doctors understand too. Entheogens Explained After introducing “entheogen,” an unfamiliar word, I ask Aya to define its meaning and why it fits better than “psychedelic” or “hallucinogen” for plant medicines like magic mushrooms or Ayahuasca. She says it comes from “generating the divine within” - implying substances eliciting short yet deeply mystical states of oneness, euphoria, infinity, clarity into Truth behind normal senses. Whereas “psychedelic” suggests escapism without personal integration. Ancient wisdom cultures prized plant entheogens as sacred portal opening mediums for ritual, divination, adolescent rites of passage, and healing. Careful protocols and reverence prevailed universally, which Aya advocates restoring today. Hence “entheogen” differentiates compounds occasioning awakening and embodiment rather than just distractive trips as “psychedelic” misleadingly implies for some. It resumes honoring time-tested shamanic respect she argues legalization absolutely necessitates incorporating rather than dismissing. Mixing Psilocybin Microdosing with Other Medications Lastly I ask about potential complications or interference augmenting microdoses with existing pharmaceutical prescriptions, over the counter supplements or common health conditions in case safety concerns arise for those interested but using other things concurrently. Aya reassures hardly any recorded interactions manifest since dosing stays so sub-perceptual, unlike recreational ranges. It won't impair bodily/metabolic functioning noticeably at tiny amounts either. And given the brain chemical specific effects, psilocybin seem unlikely to worsen side effects, diminish intended benefits of treated symptoms or cause dangerous synergistic reactions with medications. In fact integration may benefit tapering off unneeded medications under medical guidance. They awaken our inner doctor healing capacities restoring natural balance rather than overriding them as dependencies can. Of course conservative dosing and transparency with one's doctors stays vital. Closing Thoughts In closing, I sincerely thank Aya for openly illuminating the immense potential of mushroom family plant medicines like psilocybin to catalyze radical healing transformations - of both individuals and society collectively. When supported conscientiously by professionals, they provide unprecedented opportunities for healing, connection and meaning for all.

On this episode Matt sits down with Timofey “Tima” Trofimenkov. Tima is an entrepreneur, an artist and an apprentice of Shipibo medicine path. Native to a small arctic village in northern Kamchatka peninsula, Russia. Growing up, Tima lived mostly off the resources of the land, fostering a profound bond with nature. In his formative years, nature not only supplied food and medicine but also became an integral part of his being, inspiration and source of wonder and freedom. In subsequent years, after an extended period as a student, Tima experienced urban life in New York City before eventually relocating to San Antonio, TX. Over the past decade spent in San Antonio, he has not only established several companies but has also resided and conducted his creative endeavors at Studio 111, his art gallery and multimedia art space. While active within the flourishing art community of San Antonio, Tima applied his knowledge in herbal medicine to launch Element Kombucha, a pioneering beverage company in the region. Concurrently with his work in Texas, 11 years ago he embarked on the journey with sacred Ayahuasca medicine in the jungles of Peru. Frequently visiting Peruvian jungles over the years he developed a profound appreciation for Shipibo healing traditions. Over the years through sacred plant dieting and myriads of ceremonies he grew his relationships with his teachers, Shipibo maestros of medicine, subsequently becoming apprentice to their medicine. He is a part of the community at Caya Shobo Healing Center in Iquitos, Peru where you can find him frequently helping with group facilitations while maintaining a parallel focus on ongoing learning, plant dieting and cultivation of his medicine. During the conversation Tima shares the story of founding Element Kombucha, and how his passion for the herbal tea began. The two then dive into his initial experiences with Ayahuasca that lead him to take on the medicine path and begin dieting plants regularly, also called 'dieta'. Matt asks several questions to clarify what dieta consists of, and how it is performed. They also touch on the light and dark sides of cannabis, tobacco and shamanism generally. This episode was recorded in-person so it has an intimate and unique vibe. Please enjoy!

Today on the Lauren of Love podcast I am releasing a replay recording, a recap of my very first Ayahuasca experience. If you don't know, Ayahuasca is a psychedelic plant medicine that is used to heal trauma... and back in 2019, I invited this study into my work to heal the things that were blocking me. At the time, I was going through a challenging time navigating chronic illness, severe insecurity, and facing the fear of failure. I was at an all-time high in my business, so I knew that whatever was going on was something within me. So I looked to the plants. The day after my first experience, I recorded this video I am sharing with all of you in the podcast today as a replay. EP345: My VERY FIRST Ayahuasca Experience In this episode, I share an honest reflection from my very first experience. It is about as real and raw as they come and I hope you enjoy it. You'll hear me talk about navigating the wounds of insecurity, chronic illness, mental health challenges, and more. This episode feels really special because today I start my journey to Peru to sit with Ayahuasca again! It feels like the perfect time to share this with all of you. Enjoy this episode!

Whether it's Psilocybin, Ayahuasca, MDMA, or even LSD, Psychedelics have been given a bad name over the years, but what is the truth about these demonized drugs? Do they fit the drug category or do they fit the plant medicine category? What if we could unlock their healing power in a matter of minutes, addressing lifelong trauma and PTSD without years of therapy? These questions are what inspired this three part series on Food Heals where we are discussing the healing power of plant medicine. In this series you'll hear brand new interviews with leading experts in the field of psychedelics who share their personal healing journey as well as how you can access the power of plants to heal yourself as well. Enter my first guest, Paul Austin, the CEO of Third Wave, and a pioneer in reshaping our perceptions of psychedelics. Through his companies, Third Wave and Synthesis, he has helped lay the groundwork for legal, mainstream access to psychedelic medicine that has long been stigmatized. Because of his efforts at the intersection of psychedelic use, personal transformation, and professional success, Paul's work has been featured in the BBC, Forbes, WebMD, Business Insider, and Rolling Stone. Tune into learning how microdosing can help us in our personal and professional lives, how to find a safe space for healing, and what you can do at home to grow your own plant medicine.

In Part 2, I'm talking to Derek Januszewski, the founder of Pachamama Sanctuary, which is an Ayahuasca retreat center and he'll share the story of how plant medicine assisted in his journey to sobriety. And finally in part 3, I'll speak with former police officer, Nick Motycka who healed 15 years worth of job-related trauma and went from being clinically diagnosed with severe PTSD to no longer meeting the criteria for a diagnosis through the use of plant medicine.

Serge, Andre and Bryan discuss the connection between psychedelics like psilocybin mushrooms, peyote, ayahuasca and spirituality and religion.

On this episode Matt sits down with B. Louis. B. Louis is a singer/songwriter and sound healer whose mission is to share and channel his voice to the world. Healing music became his mission when he realized the healing effects people were having just in one session, with a combination of his own exploration with sacred plant medicines. He believes that by combining intentional music with meditation and self-reflection, we can begin the healing process with our own willingness to simply go within. B. uses several instruments while singing/channeling his voice to create a safe container to go on an inward journey. During the conversation B. Louis shares his experience with coming to the spiritual path through his ayahausca ceremonies, and his initial experience with sound healing that sparked his interest in taking up the practice himself with his twin brother, Anthony, who are known collectively as Cloud People. He also shares how his journey with music began, and how he started singing, first in bands, and currently in healing music and electronic / bass music. The two also touch on his latest single 'Omashu', which was a collaboration with Watashi that just released on TIMEWHEEL + much more. Please enjoy! Listen to 'Omashu' by Watashi & B.

Today's guest is my dear and beloved brother, Salvador Villalobos. Salvador has been walking the Camino Rojo and working intimately with the sacred plant medicines of the Americas, and their traditions, for over 25 years. Originally from Mexico, but now living in the breathtaking cloud forest of Mindo, Ecuador. Salvador is one of the guardians of Hayulima Spiritual Sanctuary; a beautiful and sacred land which welcomes people of all backgrounds to reconnect with nature and themselves, and to safely experience the healing potential of master plant medicines such as Ayahuasca, San Pedro, Peyote, and other ancestral ceremonies. In this episode Salvador and I explore his life long journey into the profound realms of plant medicines and the healing that can be found through ceremony. We discuss the importance of forming a genuine relationship to the natural world around us, the process of meeting and receiving the blessings of his Elders, the transformational power of Ayahuasca, and advice for the younger generation who wishes to work with these sacred plant medicines. We also venture into Salvador's journey of now being a leader of Vision Quest, a potent ritual involving fasting, prayer, and introspection which serves as a doorway to self-discovery and spiritual growth. Beyond the realms of his personal journey, our conversation navigates towards Salvador's vision for the future. His love for his daughters and his aspiration to sculpt a better world for them shines through as he shares the story behind the creation of Hayulima Spiritual Sanctuary and the vision he holds for this land.

Kari and Float discussed the historical depiction of witches using hallucinogenic plants for brews during the Middle Ages, the use of these plants for Ayahuasca, and the potential side effects of psychedelics and alcohol. They also touched on a range of topics including the Disney Company's decline, the conviction of a cryptocurrency executive, the impact of Airbnb and ride-hailing services on New York and San Francisco, electric cars, autonomous vehicles, and government surveillance. The conversation focused on the implications of the Snowden leaks, government and corporate surveillance, data privacy, and the risks of data manipulation and blackmail. All this and much more...
It's Monday…let's get this bread. We're here to bring some levity into your life so we brought in our good friend Neal Brennan for today's episode (Yes, the co-writer of the Chappelle Show). We start with music and global politics which quickly transitions into conspiracy theories. Where we cover Bill Cosby, the pandemic and of course the moon landing. Neal then shares with us his life changing experiences with ayahuasca and dmt. He goes into detail how those experiences have altered his relationships with people and religion. He even provides some insight into his next special. We all share drug stories (cue Rory's sound journey) We discuss the state of comedy. More specifically, comedic movies and In Living Color/SNL. Neal then shares when he and Dave Chapelle reconnected after their falling out. We collectively laugh at Rory's trauma. Neal goes on to share his favorite memories with Kobe, Mike Meyers, and other legends. Fortunately this conversation coincided with our first voicemail about the illuminati.

Episode 455 – How Do You Feel About Ayahuasca and Other Plant Medicines? Today we have Chris. He is 40 years old and lives in Austin, TX. He took his last drink on February 16th, 2007. Check out our events page for our lineup of upcoming retreats and courses. Beginning January 1st, RESTORE, our intense Dry January course is back! In February we have another 5-week Ukelele Course. Then in March, we have two events in Costa Rica, and we'll see you in Bozeman, Montana in August for our 6th annual retreat in Big Sky Country. Exact Nature: https://exactnature.com/RE20 [02:16] Highlights from Paul: Today is episode 9 out of 10 in the Q&A series. Today's question comes from Krista B, in our Café RE group. She says: “How Paul is feeling about ayahuasca and other plant medicines. Are you still as passionate about its benefits today as a few years ago? Has the treatment worked in a sustained way, in your opinion?” Paul shared his initial experience with ayahuasca in episode 170. He believes that plant medicines have a place in the world of addiction and mental health. Do not buy it on the internet and try it solo; set and setting is everything. There is so much preparation that needs to go into an ayahuasca ceremony and under the right circumstances, it will answer many questions. A big one being why you drink. Paul shares how ayahuasca still impacts his everyday life. While Paul found plant medicine helpful on his journey, he recognizes it's not for everyone, nor does he think everyone should try plant medicine. If you are interested, please do your own research before trying it.

He is an entrepreneur and enjoys being creative through many avenues. Chris always felt like an outsider that didn't belong while he was growing up. His parents divorced when he was young, and he blamed himself and ended up distancing himself from people. He craved connections and ended up starting drinking with a group of friends. Chris felt like alcohol was the solution to his feelings of not belonging. His drinking increased and over time he lost all those connections that he used alcohol to find and was drinking alone. At age 23 he went to treatment where they helped him recognize that he had some mental health issues, the main ones being social anxiety and depression. Some alumni from the group accepted Chris, helped him go to meetings and then they would all socialize afterwards. He finally felt he was making connections that he had craved all his life. Seeing people that were staying sober and succeeding was a big boost to Chris' confidence, and he felt like it was possible for him to do the same. His life in sobriety was becoming so great that he never had a desire to go back to drinking. Chris started going to school to become a counselor and immediately started working in the recovery field. He knew it was important to maintain and strengthen his recovery to do the job successfully. Chris started Sans Bar in 2018 as a pop-up bar when there were very few options in the alcohol-free arena. The pop-ups grew, and more and more people were interested in what Chris was doing, mostly through word of mouth. He feels it came along at the right time as the sober curious movement was beginning. Chris says doing this gave him the same feelings that his first sip of booze did – he was forming connections. He feels Sans Bar is for everyone, not just people in recovery. Chris's favorite resources in recovery: The Luckiest Club, 12 step programs, podcasts. Chris's parting piece of guidance: you can't fail. The point of sobriety is not abstinence, it's growth.

Today, I'm joined by photographer Mark Fox to talk about his experience working in Amazon Rainforest conservation and how he built a life around travel and his passions. Mark is a British photographer based in Quito, Ecuador. In 2017, he quit his stable job as a cameraman in the UK to travel the world. He now works with an Amazon conservation organization, collaborating with Indigenous leaders and local governments to protect three world-class biocooridors for wildlife migration. In this episode, Mark shares what he's learned from working in conservation and spending time with Indigenous communities, advice on visiting these communities as an independent traveler (and having genuine experiences), and how to respectfully photograph locals on your travels. You'll hear about his stint working at an Ayahuasca retreat and how this opened him up spiritually, daily life in Ecuador, and much more! How can you build a life around your passions and travel?
