This week we have Taj Deshaun on the podcast!

Taj is a former Division-1 college football player for Stony Brook University. When his football career ended, Taj struggled heavily with depression. Because he was so focused on the game, he never fully developed a clear vision for his life.

It's become his personal mission and passion to reach out and help others overcome the fear, frustration and uncertainty associated with life post-athletics. Taj is also the host of the Thrive After Sports Podcast and author of Thrive After Sports.

In this episode, we explore the experience of the unknown, the use of psychedelics as a tool to retell our stories, and the process of coming back to presence.
