8 pm Mareesa Stertz: The Incredible Utility of Story Frameworks to Map the Psychedelic Journey, Life, and Beyond

When it comes to shifting the dominant narratives around mental health, well being, and wholeness, it’s not only what we say, but how we say it. Recent studies are showing new and impressive ways Joseph Campbell’s "Hero's Journey" is proving useful when it comes to finding meaning within life, as well as mirroring the transformative arc of a mushroom journey. In this talk, we will explore how to us this as well as Carl Jung’s individuation frameworks to tell better stories and become more powerful agents of change.
