Why are you passionate about psychedelic-assisted healing?
There are few tools as potent as psychedelics to upend our egoic self and planetary destruction. I have personally seen lives transformed through these powerful medicines in ceremonies, initiations, and on the dance floor and I deeply believe that they are the tool humanity needs to get over ourselves and improve our relationship with our planet. I also believe that during the legalization and medicalization phase of these important molecules we must be vigilant that they are accessible to all and held in the highest integrity.
What do you believe is your gift to the universe?
During one of my most transformative psychedelic journeys, I experienced myself through the eyes of God and realized that my gift to the world is simply the experience of being myself, and the unfolding of my personal journey in the eyes of my peers. Rather than strive for some monolithic offering, I serve by modelling vulnerability and curiosity through podcasts, public talks and personal relationships.
