Coaching & Psychedelics

In many places in the US, psilocybin is being legalized and a new industry is booming – with good reason; research suggests psychedelics can have a highly beneficial impact on our psyches.

In this conversation with Paul F. Austin, founder of The Third Wave, we explore the therapeutic use of psychedelics and how it can be merged with coaching to increase the potency of our work, the different ways of working with psychedelics, the neurological and emotional changes stimulated, and the importance of safety, personalization and integration.
