213: AN OPEN CONVERSATION ON PSYCHEDELIC MICRODOSING FOR WOMEN
We are living in a time when ancient plant medicines are making a strong comeback. The conversation around psychedelic medicine has shifted significantly in the past 10-15 years and has been covered by popular media outlets. This shift is attributed to the mental health crisis, with approximately 50 million Americans diagnosed with mental health conditions and the pandemic exacerbating the issue.
People are desperate to heal and are seeking out unconventional methods.
In this episode, we explore psychedelics’ (particularly psilocybin/mushrooms’) potential for healing and discuss the societal stigma surrounding them, as well as the need for open conversations around their safe use. Join us as we reflect on the potential of psychedelics to support healing in individuals - as well as their positive effects on families and communities.
My guest Cori Sue Morris @corisue spent 15+ years building and scaling brands and has a master’s degree from the George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs. She dove deeply into the health and wellness space primarily to help herself and other women fight stress & anxiety. She then founded Retreat, a microdosing platform providing content, community, and coaching to psychedelic newcomers. Cori is a member of the Microdosing Collective and of Psychedelic Women, and is currently training to be a psychedelic facilitator with Synthesis Institute. Her focus is on the third wave of the psychedelic ecosystem, and she’s a passionate advocate for its potential to improve mental health.
