Ep. 26: Ego Whiplash, Spiritual Bypassing and Psychedelic Integration for Leaders with Dr. Kile Ortigo.
Kile Ortigo, PhD, is a clinical psychologist, certified psychedelic psychotherapist, and founder of the Center for Existential Exploration, where he offers depth-oriented psychotherapy and psychedelic integration services.
In this episode we talk about Kile's book, Beyond the Narrow Life: A Guide for Psychedelic Integration and Existential Exploration where Kile offers a powerful roadmap for integrating psychedelic experiences.
Kile talks about psychedelic integration for the leaders of our time, a term he coined called "ego whiplash", spiritual bypassing, narcissism, the importance of shadow work and taking the time off for self reflection. Kile also discusses acceptance, how curiosity can only get you so far, and the difference between healthy and unhealthy surrender.
