James W. Jesso joins Jason Abbott in a candid conversation about his book, Decomposing the Shadow: Lessons from the Psilocybin Mushroom.

We also cover meditation, the importance of surrender, and cultivating psychospiritual maturation.

With this fresh spike in popularity comes experimentation of all sorts; a double-edged sword.
