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.
