More Than a Pill: The emerging field of psychedelic therapy with Jim Kragtwyk
Psychedelics have always had a controversial role in healing illnesses, transforming societal norms and reconnecting human consciousness to the greater web of life. After decades of prohibition Health Canada and the FDA have approved psilocybin-assisted therapy to treat anxiety in terminally ill patients. In this episode I speak with clinical counsellor and addictions specialist Jim Kragtwyk about the implications of the emerging field of psychedelic therapy. In this conversation we discuss the origins, taboos and potential of psychedelics for healing intractable conditions of the mind and a spiritually disconnected society.
