In this episode, meet Shannon Dames. She is a professor and researcher at Vancouver Island University, a resilience Health professional investigator, and the Research and Development director for the Roots to Thrive Ketamine assisted therapy program. She is working to develop and study the combination of resilience development and psychedelic-assisted therapies within a novel outpatient mental health model.
We discuss the role of community in the healing process and why the healing journey should start at the basement of the soul, rather than at the mind. Shannon talks about bringing together western medicine and the indigenous ways of healing and working with the medicines of the land. And finally, she shares her own personal healing journey.
