EP: 35 The Zendo Project and Harm Reduction with Sara Gael M.A.
💫✨Always Another Way Podcast 💫 ✨💫Ep: 35 The Zendo Project✨💫 ✨💫Aug 9th✨💫 1pmCST Psychedelic Harm Reduction This year, millions of people will use psychedelics outside of supervised medical contexts, many of them for the first time. Taking psychedelics can result in overwhelming and uncomfortable experiences, more likely with high doses, amongst first-time users, and without adequate preparation or setting. Psychedelic harm reduction includes a variety of methods to help prevent and transform difficult experiences while in a non-ordinary state of consciousness. The Zendo Project: - Reduces the number of psychiatric hospitalizations and arrests. - Creates an environment where volunteers can work alongside one another to improve their harm reduction skills and receive training and feedback. - Demonstrates that safe, productive psychedelic experiences are possible without the need for law enforcement-based prohibitionist policies. My guest is Sara Gael, M.A. Zendo Project Sara received her Master’s degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology at Naropa University. She began working with MAPS in 2012, coordinating psychedelic harm reduction services at festivals and events worldwide with the Zendo Project. Sara was an Intern Therapist for the recently completed MAPS Phase 2 clinical trial of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD in Boulder, CO. She maintains a private practice as a psychotherapist specializing in trauma and non-ordinary states of consciousness. Sara believes that developing a comprehensive understanding of psychedelic medicines through research and education is essential for the health and well being of individuals, communities, and the planet.

✨💫Always Another Way Podcast ✨💫 ✨💫Ep: 34 - Bye Bye Rheumatoid Arthritis with Jenny Hunter of the yoga movement✨ Jenny says, “When I learned, at age 20, that the pain I was experiencing was Rheumatoid Arthritis, I set out on a journey to wellness. I wasn't willing to risk the side effects of medications, so I learned to manage my health through nutrition. Though I was able to manage the disease enough to stay mobile, I had lost most of the strength and range of motion I once had. Now that I have yoga, I am experiencing amazing healing and renewed strength! I'm honored to be able to share this ancient practice with anyone who is looking for a better way to care for their body inside and out.” ~Jenny Hunter Jenny is a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher in Dallas, TX. Her dedication to yoga and this method has been key in her remarkable recovery from the crippling effects of rheumatoid arthritis. It’s Jenny’s experience of renewed body, mind and spirit that compels her to share.

EP 33: Alcohol and Blackouts: The Trick and The Waste
✨💫Blackouts. Alcohol. The trick. The waste. Another great article from MEDIUM -- titled, My Mother The Drunk by Laura June caught my eye. Wow. Very honest. Then I got over to another article called ASK A FORMER DRUNK - When do you know you have a problem by Sarah Hepola (who I tried to get ahold of very last minute but I'm sure she is busy) She has a book called BLACKOUT — and WHOA!!!!!!!! GO GET THIS BOOK! HOLY CRAP -- she is sounding the bells. I'm not personally against all alcohol. It's just nice to know that there is ANOTHER WAY -- and there is a TRICK out there and being drunk is not a requirement for anything good in life. Listen and let me know what you think. I appreciate all of you! Thank you so much for listening, it means a lot to me. I'm grateful. xo Marina

Ep:30 Myco Meditations with Eric Osborne
There is lots of great research on the use of Psilocybin for PTSD and depression. We saw many presentations at the conference. The FDA has opened the doors to study it. There are studies already completed — with great results too! ✨💫 Eric was raised in the countryside of rural Kentucky, and has remained anything but traditional. He graduated with a Master’s in Education from the University of Louisville but soon became an educator not of English as he was trained, but of mycology which he learned through immersion. Founder of Magnificent Mushrooms gourmet mushroom farm and consulting, he was Indiana’s first State recognized Wild Mushroom Expert and a conscientious psychonaut. Eric began working in underground Psilocybin therapy for five years before being arrested. Informed of his activities, police raided his farm and home, charged him with three class B felonies and turned his life upside down. Unwilling to be thwarted, after his release from incarceration, Eric founded the 501(c)(3) organization PLEDG INC. (Psychedelic Liberation Education Discipline and Guidance), the for-profit venture MycoMeditations, a legal psilocybin retreat program in rural Jamaica and the MycoMeditations Podcast. A husband, father of three and passionate about psychedelic healing, Eric has used hurdles as inspiration to bring forward the medicine of mushrooms. I met Eric at the Los Angeles Psychedelic Science Symposium - LAPSS and he’s going to be on the show!

Ep:28 Suicide and Emotional Blackmail - Roxanne Roberts of Washington Post
Suicide and Emotional Blackmail with Roxanne Roberts of the Washington Post Talking about suicide, emotional blackmail and this article There is ANOTHER WAY, there is help. Revisioning uses the mirror neuron network and can change suicidal thinking patterns. Podcast Ep: 9 is on this technique with Dr. Mark Rider and his peer reviewed research. 22 Vets a day 123 suicides a day 45,000 a year Let's always continue the conversation on suicide, I wanted to bring another perspective into this conversation, the one of emotional blackmail. Suicide is a tragedy. We understand that people are not their true selves when this thinking pattern takes over. Every suicide threat should be taken seriously. Not many people talk about the other side of this suicide coin....the one of emotional blackmail. Where someone says, If you don't do this -- I'll kill myself. If you are having thoughts of suicide please know these are faulty messages from the brain and Call 1-800-273-8255 Here is the number of the National Sexual Assault hotline.

Ep:27 Modern Day Philosophy with Rachel Anne Williams and Uncomfotable Topics
✨💫Always Another Way Podcast✨💫 💫✨Ep: 27 - Modern Day Philosophy with Rachel Anne Williams✨ Is philosophy just for people in academia? Are philosophers just academics? Or is there ANOTHER WAY to look at Philosophy? I received an email from Medium (online publishing platform) and this title --> Why I Left Academic Philosophy --> grabbed my attention. Especially this part --> "I will never forget sitting in our auditorium listening to a long talk about meta-ethics when, right outside the doors of the university, Black Lives Matter activists were marching (this was in St. Louis at the time of Ferguson). I could hear them chanting; the stark contrast between the esoteric subtleties of meta-ethics vs. the concrete realities of what would be considered “applied ethics” — a term usually uttered with slight contempt — made me deeply uncomfortable. How could I justify this exuberance of abstraction when there were so many real-world problems that needed the minds of intelligent people. ✨💫So — why don’t we talk about this more. ✨💫 Or maybe the fact that if you had known that Rachel is transgender— you might have never read the article or give her the credit for her academics. Why do we treat humans as if they are less than for any reason?!?!? This blows my mind. Certainly no higher power that claims itself to be love could even hate someone for existing!!!! I know these are uncomfortable and not fun to talk about. Your life as you exist, is not threatened. However, millions of people live differently. Their existence is threatened because of skin color, gender identity, religion, economic status...and more! Rachel Anne Williams is an author, writer, and ex-academic philosopher. She has a Master's degree in philosophy from LSU and spent six years in Washington University in St Louis' Philosophy-neuroscience-psychology program before ultimately dropping out. She started her gender transition at 28 years old and is now 31. She grew up in Orlando, Florida and currently lives in Saint Louis, Missouri.

EP:26 At Peace: Choosing a Good Death After a Long Life with Dr. Sam Harrington
Hear Dr. Sam Harrington as we discuss his book, At Peace: Choosing a Good Death After a Long Life. Does dying in the hospital hooked up to tubes scare you? What about your parents? How do you have the conversation? When do you decide that a caring choice is the decision to avoid repeated hospitalizations and over testing? You have choices you might not think you have. There are some things that will directly lead you down the path of hospitalization and then death. My guest, Dr. Samuel Harrington is an honors graduate of Harvard College and the University of Wisconsin Medical School. He practiced internal medicine and gastroenterology for more than 30 years in Washington, D.C. There he served on the board of trustees of Sibley Memorial Hospital, a member of the Johns Hopkins Health System, and the former Hospice Care of DC. As the American health care system evolved around him, becoming increasingly complex and increasingly commercialized, Sam became interested in end-of-life issues. We are going to talk about all these things and his book, At Peace, Choosing a Good Death After a Long Life.

Ep: 25 Depression and Psychedelics - Psilocybin, LSD, Ketamine
With Dr. Richard Idell! Globally, more than 300 million people suffer from depression, and 260 million suffer from anxiety disorders—many of whom live with both conditions. A study by the World Health Organization found that such disorders cost the global economy $1 trillion in lost productivity each year. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US and almost 45,000 people in the US die by suicide. EVERY YEAR!!! The FDA began placing suicidal ideation risk warnings on certain antidepressant medications in the fall of 2004. In a recent story, The New York Times discusses why many people taking antidepressants discover they cannot quit. Last month, I interviewed Johann Hari about his New York Times best-selling book, Lost Connections - Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression. You might remember from that interview how antidepressants… haven’t been studied long-term. The “cure” doesn’t come in a bottle. I could go on, but that should tell you something right there. My guest, Dr. Richard Idell is Psychiatrist and an assistant professor in the Department of Behavioral Health at UT Health Northeast. He’s been published in numerous scholarly publications and if you look him up — you’ll be more than impressed. Oh yeah...he’s a musician too!! We’re going to talk about one of his most recent papers about the treatment of depression with psychedelics. If psychedelics scare you... you’ll want to listen, because we’re going to bring the facts. I’ll share my personal experience and the doctor will talk about the research. From the CDC 21,028 people died from alcoholic liver disease in 2015. 33,000, 171 died from alcohol induced deaths in 2015. Opioids!! More than 65,000 died in 2017. Why do we seek “pain” killers? And you know how easy alcohol is to get. How many died from taking Psilocybin? I can’t even find that number. Do you know how addictive sugar is? Keep this in the back of your brain when we do this podcast -- this is from an article in National Geographic - link in comments. "Nicole Avena, a neuroscientist at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital in New York, has shown that rats will keep gobbling sugar if you let them, and they develop tolerance, craving, and withdrawal, just as they do when they get hooked on cocaine.

Re-Parent Yourself Guided Hypnotic Meditation
All hypnosis is self hypnosis. DO NOT LISTEN WHILE DRIVING! Find a nice spot to lie down or sit comfortably. This guided hypnotic meditation was created specifically to allow you to experience a guided visual journey of reimagination. Very few of us grew up with perfect parents. None of us got to pick our parents. These are things we cannot change. The future - is yet unwritten. There are many studies that suggest we have subconscious blocks from events that happened to us that might keep us from accessing our full potential. This guided hypnotic meditation gives you an opportunity to start from the beginning and re parent yourself -- they way you want to. After you listen, just notice the changes in days and weeks to come that will signify that you have changed.

Ep: 24 Drama Free Zone
It seems the topic of high conflict or high maintenance individuals will never go away. Over the years, I’ve handled different situations in different ways. For a long time, I felt that an invitation to argue, was directed at me and I happily joined the party. I had to defend myself. I had my reputation to defend. Or did I? Do you feel that way when someone offends you? Do you need to respond? What if it’s family? Dr. Moran Cerf, a neuroscientist at Northwestern University who has been studying decision making for over a decade has made a very surprising discovery via research. The #1 thing that will determine your happiness........ Hint: it’s not experiences, material goods, or personal philosophy! I haven’t got a chance to reach out to Dr. Cerf yet, but definitely will! We are going talk about all these things today! Write something below if you’re having an issue with anybody and you want to talk about a certain situation. Names will be not disclosed. I’m going to talk about a most recent text message triangulation from one of my family members trying to bait me… But I don’t take the bait. I’ve got funny story of a gaff I made many years ago. Have you ever left a message you didn’t mean to leave on a work voicemail? Paul Dolan - maybe you remember this.

Is there always an elephant in the room? How short is life? How precious is life? Is this what you want to be doing right now if you were to die today?

EP: 15 Lost Connections with Johann Hari Real cause of depression
Depression and anxiety are now the most common mental illnesses in the US, affecting 18 percent of the population. Almost one in six Americans is now taking a drug for these or related disorders. A deeply researched new book asks: what if we have been radically misunderstanding these problems for more than a generation—and missing the real solutions? New York Times bestselling author Johann Hari radicalized the addiction debate with his acclaimed book Chasing the Scream and accompanying TED talk—which, along with the animation based on it, has been viewed more than 21 million times. He has now carried out a bold three-year investigation about what really causes depression and anxiety, and how to actually solve these disorders. Hari suffered from depression since he was a child, and he was told by doctors that his problems were caused by a chemical imbalance in his brain. He started taking antidepressants at 18—but he remained depressed, no matter the dose. He thought he was unusual—but when he embarked on his research into the mystery of depression, he discovered that the real figures, away from Big Pharma propaganda, show that 65 to 80 percent of people taking an anti-depressant are still depressed. Using his training as a social scientist at Cambridge University, Hari began to investigate the causes of depression and anxiety, traveling over 40,000 miles and conducting hundreds of interviews. He discovered something startling: the story we have been told about these problems is not true. Cutting-edge science shows these problems are not caused by a spontaneous chemical imbalance in our brains. In fact, they are largely caused by seven key factors in the way we are living today. Once we understand this different way of thinking, a whole different set of solutions then open up. Lost Connections presents Hari’s findings and prescripts paths out of depression and anxiety, giving rise to a radically new way of thinking about an epidemic sweeping across the United States. This book—already lauded by people as varied as Elton John and Naomi Klein—is based on three years of detailed research and reporting. The reporting ranges from the world’s leading social scientists, to an Amish village, to an uprising in Berlin, to a series of remarkable experiments in Baltimore. It is an epic journey that will change how we think about one of the biggest crises in our culture today. Johann Hari is the New York Times bestselling author of Chasing the Scream, which is being adapted into a feature film. He was twice named Newspaper Journalist of the Year by Amnesty International UK. He has written for the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and others, and he is a regular panelist on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” His TED talk, "Everything you THINK you know about Addiction is Wrong" has more than 22 million views.

Ep:6 #MeToo Getting Robbed and #TimesUp
#MeToo Getting Robbed and #TimesUp -- Explicit Language Warning ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ Today I'm going to talk about why sexual violence is the only crime that makes the victims feel shamed and bad. If today, you were robbed, got into a car accident with a drunk driver, kidnapped, physically assaulted or financially scammed -- you would tell everyone you know, run to the police and possibly post about it on social media. You would be angry at the perpetrator. However, you yourself wouldn't feel bad that someone robbed you. You wouldn't blame yourself if a drunk driver hit you. No one would ask you what you were doing driving at 2 AM if a drunk driver hit you. I can openly talk about being robbed and I wouldn't make anyone feel uncomfortable and it wouldn't be a conversation stopper. But let me tell you about the babysitter that molested me when I was four or tell you about another incident… And you immediately clam up and don't want to talk to me. I've made you feel very uncomfortable. This is completely ridiculous!!!!!! 256 women have come forward against Larry Nassar. Do you think it's a coincidence of the timing that Joe Paterno passed away after Larry Sandusky? How hard has the Catholic Church tried to pedophiles. The statistics are off. The majority of women and men do not report crimes of sexual violence. Janelle Monáe gave a very powerful speech at the Grammys and her message is Time's Up. Time is Up!!! What's with the gun and the silencer? I'm going to talk about it today. #metoo #timesup

✨There is ANOTHER WAY to do LIFE at 40+ You won't want to miss this one, my 40 and over friends -- perhaps you are not there yet? You will be! I met my guest through TWITTER years ago. In 1995, Jackie Morgan MacDougall packed everything she owned into her Mitsubishi Eclipse and hit the road for Los Angeles with just $700 to her name. Fast forward, she has worked for over two decades in TV and digital marketing, creating content for women with some of the most recognizable and innovative names in entertainment like Queen Latifah, Harry Connick Jr., Tyra Banks, Chrissy Teigen and Sharon Osbourne. While her passion for all things entertainment brought her to LA, it’s what she has experienced personally and professionally that brought her to her true purpose. Now instead of just creating content for others to market to women, She taps into her own personal insight and voice to connect with women -- online and in person -- helping them find their own distinct voices and use that voice in a way that’s authentic and effective. Jackie wants to know ---> How will you thrive? ✨💫✨ Are you a woman over 40 -- Check out Forty Thrive and if you live in LA or can make it there -- she has an event coming up that will take your thrive into overdrive!
