Today, I share my conversation with Dr. Eric Sienknecht, an identical twin, psychologist, and co-founder of the Polaris Insight Center, a Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy clinic in San Francisco.

Topics Discussed:

  • Developing an individual identity while being an identical twin
  • Healing through experiencing non-ordinary states of consciousness
  • Psychedelic therapy, including Ketamine-assisted therapy
  • Growing up in Tennessee and attending an all-boys Christian high school
  • Experiences with bullying by peers and teachers
  • Mystical experiences
  • Detaching from your emotions
  • Holding space and self-care through mindfulness and listening to music
