Manage episode 270205840 series 2780099
This is an incredibly rich conversation, in which you will hear:
What you can do if conventional therapies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) don’t work for you;
Why panic is what you feel when you are trying not to feel anxious, and depression is what happens when you refuse to feel sad;
How you can gain ‘real control’ over your emotions; and
Why psychedelics help some people but not all.
Finally, Steven leads us through a guided exercise that you can do right now.
I am sure you will enjoy Steven’s generosity and intelligence as much as I do.
