#634 Psilocybin Retreats in Amsterdam with Chi and Leti
1:03:57
Chi's Bio For most of my life, I battled addiction, depression, and low self-esteem. In my 20’s, I spent a total of 16 months in silent retreat, including a month in darkness. I went to Burma twice to take temporary monastic vows and practice with the monks. I tried really hard to heal myself. Still, I was unfulfilled. I lacked discipline and was unable to keep up a practice on my own. I constantly fell back into patterns of misery.I was desperate. In my longing for happiness, I finally took the plunge into my first psychedelic experience with five tabs of LSD (the recommended starting dose is ~1 tab). Wow! What a shock to my psyche. For a long time, I thought psychedelics were “dangerous” and “bad.” I wrote them off as drugs for immature people. Now, I realized I’d been told a lie all along. As Terrence McKenna says, “psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behavior and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong.” Soon after my LSD journey, I had my first experience with magic mushrooms, and my life has been transformed ever since. I’m honored to be called by the mushroom to serve as a humble messenger for the psilocybin vision of love, interconnectedness, and peace. I am happy to be able to serve those who are called to experience the magic. My job is to listen, hold space, practice patience, and love. Leti’s Bio When I was 9, I took my mom’s side in her bitter divorce with my dad. I cut off contact with him, “the bad guy,” and didn’t see or speak with my dad for 25 years. While living with my mom, I was driven by fear of not being the perfect daughter. I didn’t want to cause my mom worry so I created a mental checklist for myself — be quiet (invisible when possible), study hard, go to college, get a good job, and get a steady boyfriend. I accomplished these things, but still felt incomplete. After college, I worked 16 years at a big organic cosmetics company trying to fit into the corporate world. My desires to be seen as a perfect daughter manifested themselves in my relationships with my bosses and co-workers. I became successful and started making a lot of money, but I knew the corporate world would never fulfill me. After realizing how much joy yoga and meditation brought in my life, I finally mustered up the courage to leave my high-paying job and started diving deeper into my practice. When I had my first psilocybin journey in Thailand, I felt I had discovered a miracle. The more journeys I have and the more people I guide through their own experiences, the more my heart opens to the beautiful and sad mystery of life. Magic truffles have helped me connect with mother earth and higher consciousness. They’ve helped me work through deep traumas. In my mind truffles are the healers and I am just their humble servant. My life is dedicated to creating safe, caring, and loving environments so people can experience the healing powers of magic psilocybin truffles.

#633 The Quest to Create Personally Transformative Apps with Entrepreneur Steve Curtis
1:04:12
Steve Curtis is an investor, entrepreneur, adventurer and revolutionary thought leader. Raised by a low-income single mother, Steve started his first business at 19 with a $500 credit card and grew it into a business with a half-billion dollar valuation before he sold it. Today, he leads a group of globally-impactful companies and non-profits spanning natural pharmaceuticals, consumer package goods, film, hospitality, technology and venture capital. Steve’s career trajectory changed radically at age 24 when he was diagnosed with a terminal cancer for which there was no cure and only 2 years left to live. Steve hired an MD, built a research team and traveled the world to develop a cure. From researchers at global expert centers like Yale and Stanford to healers and shamans in far-off jungles, he sought to cure the incurable. Learning he couldn’t make a drug fast enough, he followed the trail of “spontaneous remission," setting the prognosis-defying goal of summiting Everest instead. Five years later, he had done both. Healing without the use of any modern medicine, he was left with unquestionable truth and a vision for changing medicine globally. Steve channeled his passion into writing a book to teach his insights, creating a foundation to advance research in healing, and developing a number of businesses that all center around creating the state of awareness that allowed him to heal. Steve has become an influential thought leader in international politics and has influenced the lives of millions of people through the products he has created. His venture capital business is advancing new perspectives in science, medicine and technology with investments in AI, quantified self, VR, AR, spiritual science, block-chain, and psychedelic medicine.

I am telling her something and she does not know the answer or is unsure of it. So she gets out her black cell phone and makes a call, to a mentor or superior I assume. The next thing we are standing on a spiral stairs, my psychologist is one or two steps higher than me, we are both around the middle. On top of the stairs there is a black woman, probably in her 60s, very smartly dressed in black. She seems serious but not stern, like someone with natural authority / gravitas. She has a black cell phone and I gather that she is the person my therapist called. She says (the answer is) blue bird (blue jay?). Then I look down my hands and I see I am holding a blue bird in them. Context: I'm not in therapy so I have no therapist. My older children (18, 20) have left home and we have had a few losses in our lives. I am married and feel like my life has been in transition for the past five years. Feelings: it wasn't emotionally charged. Mostly surprise to see the bird in my hands. Needs explaining: I'm not in therapy now (never did Jungian therapy). I do love Marion Woodman's work and am re reading The Pregnant Virgin  Dream #2 Female, 54, varied jobs Dream: I was hiking in the mountain up and down a valley and kept running into bears. I made it back to my cabin and the bears were in my yard, and in my house. They were in my daughters room, and she was small. I approached to see what might have happened, for the bear seemed to be sitting with her in a play area.....then I awoke. Context: There bears were protective mothers, or they consumed her....the dream repeated itself. My daughter is a grown woman. I think I was reviewing my situation raising her as a single mom,

#611 – Charles Tauber MD on Training Volunteers to Deal with The Traumas of War
57:05
Charles David Tauber MD grew up in a family of immigrants in New York City. He has worked in movements for social change since 1966, starting with the environmental and peace movements. He studied chemistry and physics at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, where he also was active with the first actions of Greenpeace and with non-violent civil disobedience actions in the 1970s. He then studied medicine in Groningen, The Netherlands. After obtaining his medical qualification, he began to work with asylum seekers and refugees with the joint Amnesty International-International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War Medical Examination Group and other local and regional groups in their support of asylum seekers and refugees’ efforts to obtain asylum. Also, he and other physicians were treating asylum seekers where other doctors weren’t willing to. They also were educating and psychologically supervising volunteers and staff members of other organizations working with asylum seekers. When the wars in the former Yugoslavia broke out in the early 1990s, a number of the members of those groups formed a working group, from which the Coalition for Work with Psychotrauma and Peace, the CWWPP, was born. Tauber has worked in the former Yugoslavia as head of the CWWPP since June 1995. The aim of the CWWPP is to increase capacity at the grassroots level to work with psychological trauma and its physical consequences. The organization works with war victims and “people on the move”, otherwise known as migrants. The CWWPP uses a highly participatory method known as Pragmatic Empowerment Training, or PET, to assist people without previous education to assist one another. PET groups are given onsite and online without charge to the participants. Today’s episode is brought to you by Calm: The #1 App for Meditation, Sleep and relaxation.

#609 – Using the Muse Meditation Trainer with Founder Ariel Garten
1:01:02
Ariel Garten is a neuroscientist, innovator, mother, and entrepreneur whose driving purpose is to empower and help others overcome mental obstacles in order to live healthy, happy lives and reach their maximum potential. She is the Founder of InteraXon, the makers of Muse: the brain sensing headband. Muse is the award-winning wearable technology that assists and trains meditation and mindfulness. You can find her 2011 TED talk where she explains a bit about the technology. Before founding InteraXon, Ariel was not only trained as a neuroscientist and psychotherapist, but also started her own international clothing line while she worked in labs researching Parkinson’s disease and hippocampal neurogenesis. Her creativity and entrepreneurial head combined with her fascination with the brain lead her to join forces with two likeminded friends, the later co-founders of InteraXon. Together they founded a Silicon Valley backed startup that allowed people to control computers with their minds, the technology that sparked the creation of Muse. Her team’s technology has been featured in over 1000 media pieces, as well as was the feature showcase at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, an installation that allowed over7,000 people control the lights on the CN tower, Canadian parliament buildings, and Niagara Falls with their brains from across the country. These days, Ariel can be found at home playing with her 2 year old or on stage across the world speaking about happiness, meditation, understanding mental health, or telling her own innovation story, consistently giving her audiences the tools they need to help them become their best selves.

#606 – Tips for Overcoming Chronic Illness with Dr. Steven G. Fox
55:18
Steven G. Fox Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist who has been in practicing for over thirty years. He was diagnosed with MS in 1991. After fifteen years of deteriorating, having a leg brace, and using a cane with regular severe falls, he developed a program that led to his multiple sclerosis going into remission. His personal story enters in a lot, of course, as he was physically abused as a child. Using the most advanced medical approaches available, he forged an alternative/spiritual/medical/psychotherapy approach that led to his primary progressive multiple sclerosis going into remission. It is believed that many of the approaches he used could be helpful to others with chronic disease. In addition, the author considers it a case study in how child abuse can make one more vulnerable to chronic illness. It is a very personal approach that the author hopes will help others develop their best individualized methods of treatment.
