Too many positive signals to contain this inspired solo episode where I make a case for our human family shifting to a WAP: World At Peace. PEACE: Goal & Way!    Solocast Show Notes #42:   Why Big Pharma is a top offender of Bullshit Inc.:  -Last checked the Opioid Crisis claims 193 people each day. Wowsers. That’s 70K per year. Ughhh. It’s estimated 58,000 American lives were lost in the entire Vietnam conflict.  -1 in 4 of us on psyche meds? 1 in 6 on SSRI’s/Anti-depressants? The pills are very addictive and often have harsh side-effects. I believe our pharmaceutical companies can reform and do a better job of serving our great nation and those they’ve pledged to care for.

Where is this message coming from?"Jesse Gould- 29:14  "Veterans are the only group that is respected enough that can bring in this controversial topic to demographics that would otherwise never entertain that conversation." Jesse Gould - 32:00  "The moment you fall into the stereotypes of what it is they expect of subhuman then you lose that battle. But if you maintain that moral high-ground, that messaging high-ground, that trust high-ground...then that's power right there." Jesse Gould - 35:36 "You are a warrior. You no longer are in battle, you're no longer all in combat, but that's not what necessarily makes you a warrior. That was part of you, but now use that same warrior spirit for other means of helping other veterans of giving back, of non-profit work." Jesse Gould 43:20   "There are more people in my generation that are prioritizing themselves and mental health and family instead of just having billions and billions of dollars."

In our uplifting conversation, Hayden and I talk in-depth about her overcoming childhood trauma to live a wholehearted life. She shares vulnerably a horrific event that imprisoned her but also gave her an incredible understanding of what trauma is and the mechanism behind psychedelic-assisted therapy. We share a hopeful glimpse of what might be possible from the other-side of trauma: both individual and collective.    Show notes Hayden Bowen Podcast #28   We Discuss;     -Pushing against psychological immune system [12:48]   -Trauma cycle — Shake it off!

In the episode, I mostly free-stream the pros and cons of microdosing psychedelic medicines. A phenomenon that has gone mainstream with supposedly up to a third of C-level Silicon Valley executives microdosing psychedelics to enhance creativity to get a leg up on their competition. I share most of my personal experiences and a boatload of relevant resources. None of this is medical advice, just a compilation of a lot of possibly pertinent educational material/information and supercharged show notes.   Microdosing Psychedelic Medicines Show Notes:    -Mark Manson Weekly Blog—Highly Recommended!
