About this show:
This week’s guest, Dr Maya Shetreat, indulges my desire to bring us a BIG conversation this week. We explore the subjects of perimenopause and passage rites in life in general, as well as discuss the bridging of the gap between conventional thinking and mysticism, indigenous wisdom and the risk of its absence in plant medicine trends and traditional, sacred ceremony. We also discuss microdosing psychedelics, meditation and how healing doesn’t have to be an epiphany or explosive ‘moment’ and in fact. We go to all those places and more in one of the most epic shows I’ve brought to the podcast. Dr. Maya Shetreat is an adult and pediatric neurologist who believes we can inhabit multiple identities. She has spoken around the world and been featured in the New York Times, NPR and Dr. Oz – and she also listens and talks to plants every day. She is a mystic and ancient astrologer grounded in mitochondria, the microbiome and mycelial science. She is an herbalist, artist, ceremonialist, urban farmer, and forager. She is the author of two books, The Master Plant Experience: The Science, Safety, and Sacred Ceremony of Psychedelics (2023) and The Dirt Cure (2016) which has been translated into 10 languages.
Dr. Maya is an expert in many things and also always endeavors to remain a beginner. Intrigued? Enjoy the show, Alexx.
