This episode is actually the audio of an event held in Calgary. AB on December 2, 2016, titled Pathways Through The Darkness – Psychedelics & Trauma Healing. The event was put on by the Calgary Psychedelic Society and featured the two amazing women whose bios I am about to present to, and myself. The event sold out really fast and so we recorded it in order to make sure this one-off gathering of us three could be shared beyond the few fast enough to get their tickets.  Part 1 of the episode the lectures, Part 2, the Q&A.
