Lauren Taus (INBodied Life): Tales of Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy
From studying with MAPS MDMA protocols to the tutelage of mentor Phil Wolfson, author of The Ketamine Papers, Lauren Taus is bringing play into psychedelic healing.
Today I’m speaking to Lauren Taus, a licensed psychotherapist and a yoga and meditation teacher based in Venice Beach, California. In addition to modalities like cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems work, mindfulness, and somatic techniques, she also offers ketamine assisted psychotherapy (KAP) when she feels that it’s appropriate for clients.
On the show we discuss Lauren’s background with MAPS MDMA protocols and the tutelage of her mentor Phil Wolfson, editor of The Ketamine Papers. We talk about equal access to psychedelic medicine and her advice for young practitioners.
Lauren also has her own podcast, INbodied Life with guests like Rick Doblin, Rachel Yehuda, and Camille Barton so we share a few podcasting tips as well.
So prepare for a journey and may we all return with a little more softness.
