Shownotes

It took Dr. Will Siu 15 years of medical training and a slew of certifications from UCLA, the University of Oxford, and Harvard Medical School before realizing he was not truly happy. After years chasing happiness and career gratification through hoops dictated by what he defines as “perceived values,” he found himself depressed, empty, and searching for true purpose. 

After encountering the world of psychedelics through a friend, he decided to explore their potential for healing – first for himself, and now for his patients. After my traumatic birth experience with Sebastian, I turned to Dr. Will Siu for the emotional release I couldn’t get from sitting on a couch. The guttural shrieks and cries I expressed during that 90-minute session in his LA office finally closed the circle to the traumatic loop I had been locked in. 

In this episode, we unfold Dr. Will Siu’s fascinating career trajectory and enlightening perspective on therapy and psychedelics, debunking a few myths along the way. Finally, we reflect on the different ways we can give ourselves permission to feel, express ourselves, and live an existence that’s authentically ours.
