What Is Ayahuasca?
ft. Jesse Gould and Yuriy Blokhin || HVMN Podcast: Ep. 76
Can psychedelic therapy transform the way we approach mental health issues?
In recent years, psychedelic therapy has moved from niche to counterculture to mainstream; even writers like Michael Pollan are exploring the potential of psychedelics through a scientific lens.
One interesting psychedelic is ayahuasca, a South American tea that contains DMT.
This week, we feature Jesse Gould (former Army Airborne Ranger) and Yuriy Blokhin (employee one at messenger app Kik), leaders behind the Heroic Hearts Project, a foundation for veterans to help educate and provide access to psychedelic therapy. They bring a diverse background to changing the culture and dialogue around the value of psychedelics.
In this discussion, you'll discover:
•The research around psychotherapy, like discovering the true role of serotonin through studying the effects of LSD
•What differentiates ayahuasca from other psychedelics, and why Heroic Hearts Project chose it for therapy
•How thoughtful language plays a critical role in the societal acceptance of psychedelics
