01 | Somatic Experiencing with Caleb
Caleb joins me for the first episode of the show. We talk a lot around a therapy modality called Somatic Experiencing that he's been incorporating into his therapy practice over the last 2 years. I've been interested in this for awhile and more so after I had heard of his transformative experiences using it.
We touch a bit on the use of psychedelics in combination with a method like this, so this kind of method is worth keeping an eye out for if you were looking to engage in psychedelic therapy as that becomes more accessible in your area.
Caleb mentions a few books in the episode as good intros if you want a deeper look into these kinds of methods
