I met Nick recently at a social function, and his gentle, heavily researched, and welcoming approach to topics psychedelics, internal family systems therapy, and more was deeply edifying. So I’ve asked him to come on the show for two longer episodes.

Part 1 is about the fears and worries people can have around psychedelic experiences, and an overview of how they work and what their potential is. If you’ve ever been interested in this field, now’s your chance to get in on the ground floor!
