This week, Sam chats with Lynn Min, LMHC, about the therapeutic use of psychedelics to reach greater self-understanding, self-compassion, and actual healing. They go into what it feels like to come out of psychedelic trips and feel lighter and at peace, and the power of these medicines to rewire your brain to become more receptive to healing. They marvel at the magic of being able to look at your traumas and wounds without being triggered in the aftermath, and what it means to have an ego death. They explore the historical stigmas surrounding spiritual drugs and how people have begun to start accepting them in light of new research about their scientifically-backed benefits, especially in therapy.
Lynn Min, LMHC, is a licensed mental health counselor, a certified life coach, a pastor, and a mom of three. Connect with Lynn at lynnmin.com or @soulmattersllc
