Why are you passionate about psychedelic-assisted healing?
I have always been interested in how the human mind works, and its impacts on the way that we converse with the world around us. We are constantly integrating our experiences throughout our journey to find purpose and connection. I believe that psychedelics-assisted healing can help us to both individually and collectively realize our path to fulfillment.
What do you believe is your gift to the universe?
I listen to people with empathy and non judgment with the intention of making them feel seen.
