Exploring Plant Medicine: Psychedelics, Ceremonies, and Therapeutic Insights with Pedro

In this episode we are discussing the transformative power of plant medicine.

My guest is a very skilled plant medicine healer; however due to the laws around psychedelics we are keeping his identity under wraps. So, for this episode, his name is Pedro which he picked after the plant he works with, the san pedro cactus.

Pedro shares his personal journey, revealing what drew him to the sacred work of plant medicine. He discusses the various substances and the deep relationships formed during ceremonies. He also gives you a glimpse into the rituals and experiences.

For therapists, he will offer insights on working with individuals post-experience, emphasizing the importance of containment and allowing the experience to naturally unfold.
