Dr. Laura starts the show by talking about the profound experience psychedelics and plant-based medicine have had on her life. She then welcomes facilitator and guide Reanna Costa to the episode. Reanna talks about her path to becoming a “midwife” in all senses of the word, where she helps people birth whatever it is they need to and helps let go of whatever is holding them back. She talks with Laura about creating a space for safety and trust in her work, how the ego can show up in our healing, why we need to move at our own pace, how to unwind and rewire the subtle layers of tension that keep us locked in old patterns and the effect plant-based medicine has on our brain.
