Psychedelia: Tales of Mind Trips & Healing with Andy Mitchell PhD
Psychedelia: Tales of Mind Trips & Healing with Andy Mitchell
Psychedelic compounds have been used for thousands of years in spiritual and healing rituals. Today, the experiences induced by the compounds produce an opportunity for modern healers to guide patients into releasing trauma and building a new mindset. But how qualified are the current shamans and guides to lead trauma therapy sessions with non-regulated psychedelic drugs? And are the drugs essential to healing trauma, or can healing be achieved solely through enlightenment? To gather information from someone who in the name of scientific research, has first-hand knowledge of multiple psychedelics, Positive Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with clinical neuropsychologist and author Andy Mitchell. After meeting a stranger who recommended a mind trip, Andy set out on a journey of using psychedelics for scientific research. The details of his forty trips in sixty days became the foundation of his book, Ten Trips: The New Reality of Psychedelics. Andy shares the elements of his most powerful trip and some of the mind-blowing experiences psychedelics have gifted him during his journey.
