In this episode, I had the honor of speaking with Kate Kincaid, a Licenced Professional Counselor, who offers ketamine-assisted therapy as well as integration services. Kate shares her experiences with psychedelics, starting with the Zendo Project at Burning Man, as well as a psychedelic-like, near-death experience with childbirth. It’s all about non-ordinary states of consciousness!
