The New Directions For Life Podcast


Nov 15, 2019

In this episode, I visit with yoga teacher, author, transformational coach and psychedelic integration counselor, Brian James. Brian has worked with yoga and psychedelics for many years, and helps people in these realms. He has worked with ayahuasca in a variety of settings, and has worked for a period of time at the notable, Temple of the Way of Light, an ayahuasca healing center in Peru. Brian shares some of what he has learned from his journey, and we talk about important concepts such as, when should a person consider exploring psychedelics in their healing work, the importance of preparation and integration work, and how patience and discipline are critical in the healing journey. This conversation starts around the 9:00min. mark.
