Dr. Mark Goulston and I discuss my experience with psychedelics, (im)patience, purpose, life patterns, and pretending you’re blind, as well as concepts like surgical empathy, coping (instead of healing), psychological adhesion, the {horror—terror—don't panic} trifecta, and how Ayahuasca can reconfigure minds as if they’re Rubik's cubes.

Originally a UCLA psychiatry professor and FBI hostage negotiation trainer, Dr. Goulston’s expertise has been forged in real-life, high-stakes situations. Dr. Goulston is an executive coach and the author (or co-author) of nine books, including Just Listen and Get Out of Your Own Way: Overcoming Self-Defeating Behavior. He is also the host of the My Wakeup Call Podcast, which kindly hosted this episode. —Links— Follow Mark on Twitter: https://twitter.com/MarkGoulston Check out his books: https://amazon.com/Mark-Goulston/e/B001IZ2O3W%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt_scns_share & our first conversation: https://youtu.be/S_3Ydotys_g
