S2 E28 Holiday Special: Hernan Savastano on fatherhood, medicines in life, healing trauma, creating music, & holding space
Show Notes

For the last episode of the year, last episode of season 2, and our 2022 Holiday Special, I am meeting with Hernan Savastano. Hernan is the father of Raina, husband of Angela, and talented plant medicine musician, facilitator, and space holder. He left the corporate world a few years ago after 18 years at Microsoft and Zillow working in User Research. Hernan and his wife now run a wellness and retreat center outside Seattle. Hernan recounts his journey from childhood to fatherhood, his work to heal, the missteps and lessons learned along the way, the role of plant medicine music in healing, and all the forms of medicine in his life. This is a powerful episode full of vulnerability and deep emotions. We cover a lot, from spiritual bypassing to healing generational trauma to holding emotional space for your children. We recorded this in person so watch the video if you can. This was one of the most moving interviews I’ve done so far, enjoy it and Happy Holidays.
