19: Listening to Ayahuasca with Rachel Harris, PhD
Rachel Harris is the author of Listening to Ayahuasca, New Hope for Depression, Addiction, PTSD, and Anxiety, and a psychologist with both a research and a clinical background. She was in the 1968 Residential Program at Esalen Institute, Big Sur, CA and remained on the staff for a number of years. She also worked as a psychological consultant to Fortune 500 companies including the UN. Rachel was in private psychotherapy practice for thirty-five years specializing in people interested in psychospiritual development.
In 2005, Rachel began working with the South American plant medicine ayahuasca, which became the main focus of her work since retiring as a clinical counsellor. In this episode, we get into some of her research on the healing benefits of ayahuasca, the keys to realizing longterm, lasting change after a psychedelic experience, psychedelics and psychotherapy and lots more.
