Altered Consciousness: Ayahuasca for Mental Therapy || #76
3 days ago
Can psychedelic therapy transform the way we approach mental health issues? The discussion around psychedelic therapy has started to move from the niche and hippy into the mainstream in recent months with people like writer Michael Pollan opening up the conversation around the potential of psychedelics through the lens of scientific potential. One interesting psychedelic is ayahuasca, a South American tea that contains the chemical DMT. This week, we have on Jesse Gould and Yuriy Blokhin, the leaders behind Heroic Hearts Project, a foundation for veterans to help them learn about and access psychedelic therapy. Jesse is a former Army Airborne Ranger and Yuriy was the first employee of the popular messenger app Kik. These two gentleman, as you can tell, come from very different backgrounds, but were brought together with their own experiences with ayahuasca and the mission of changing the culture and dialogue around the value of psychedelics. In this discussion, you’ll discover: - The research around psychotherapy...such as how we discovered the true role of serotonin through studying the effects of LSD - What differentiates ayahuasca from other psychedelics, and why Heroic Hearts Project is focused on using it specifically for therapy - How thoughtful messaging plays a critical role in the societal acceptance of psychedelics ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Take a short survey that will help us improve the podcast and be entered in a HVMN Ketone giveaway: https://go.hvmn.com/podcastsurvey We also want to hear from our listeners/viewers!
