Alarming facts of Psychedelic hang-overs

I’ve never heard it referred to as a “psychedelic hangover” …that’s my term. But that’s how I describe what many of my clients and students have been talking to me about since I began teaching Emotional Liberation nearly 10 years ago. 

What’s been expressed in the intake interviews I do with them goes something like this, “Yeah, I tried psychedelics to feel better (ayahuasca, LSD, psilocybin, peyote, etc) but it didn’t help.” And often a follow-up comment like: “I felt better for a little while but the [fill in the blank emotion] ________ (anxiety, shame, depression, sadness, etc) came back. OR I heard, “I’ve never felt quite right since that psychedelic experience.”

It’s a disturbing and important issue and there’s a lot to be said so I am sharing it with you in this video.
