Payam: Sacred Medicine, Societal Trauma and lowering our shields of protection

In this episode, you will learn about Internal Family Systems and Sacred Medicines. We talk about the expectations that the current society places on us and how those expectations elicit and catalyse our trauma. You will get a clear understanding of intergenerational and intercultural trauma and you will learn which quick fix solutions definitely do not work. We talk about external validation, workshop hoppers and what you must be aware of before embarking on the journey of healing. Payam shares with us which sacred medicines he is using to help seekers and why he choses to use these specific ones. We discuss ego, systematic issues and why we do not always need to be strong. It takes a lot of courage and acceptance to deal with your own trauma and listening to this episode can be a first step. Always be aware that there are friends along the journey. Enjoy. 

Make sure to let me know your thoughts and join the conversation.
