Sleep health is one of the most overlooked and essential factors for physical and mental health, as well as longevity. Yet, so many people worldwide suffer from sleep disorders, and this issue seems to only be increasing in modern times. Although sleep aids may help people fall asleep, they don’t necessarily support sleep efficiency which is a better indicator of restfulness and rejuvenation.
In this episode, we explore many important questions related to what goes into a good night’s sleep and why we are facing an increasing rate of sleep issues globally. We discuss integrative interventions, the role of wearables and where they fall short, and a map to understand the root causes of sleep disturbances. This is a great episode if you’ve been trying to optimize your sleep personally or working with clients professionally.

What spiritual experiences can be garnered from using psychedelics and can they be integrated properly?
In today’s episode, we delve into psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and explore these questions that are on many providers’ minds.

Will and Keith dive deep into a conversation around spirituality, their own personal experiences, the technologies used in spiritual traditions and the field of mental healthcare, and how these synergistic fields interact with each other in overcoming states of suffering and achieving wellness.
