ah, I am so proud to bring this conversation your way, I truly loved talking to Laura Mae Northrup, whose worked has been important on my journey in lots of different ways. We covered a lot of ground and I hope you’ll feel inspired to check her book and podcast out after listening to this. Here is some of what we talked about:
- Psychedelic preparation & integration
- Looking at trauma through a spiritual lens
- Embodying integrity as a healing practitioner within capitalism
- Listening to survivors and witnessing each other heal
