This video is a 90 minute discussion with Scientist and Author, Chris Becker. In this video we discuss how he used guided psychedelic therapy with substances such as psilocybin and mdma to begin to heal from the symptoms of childhood trauma and alcoholism. This video includes timestamps below to help you orient yourself for future listening.
Chris is the first in our series of professionals sharing with the world the benefits they have had from psychedelic experiences. I highly encourage you to purchase his book, (link above) as it is a short and beautiful read of a man’s journey into his unconscious with the aid of psychedelic medicines.
Chris Becker, Ph.D has over 30 years of experience in mass spectrometry and chemical physics and his research has included the original development of label-free protein quantification, protein biomarker discovery, and rapid DNA analysis. He is author on 130 peer-reviewed scientific journal articles and 20 U.S. patents. He’s managed laboratories and research groups, and he’s co-founded two companies. Chris has been practicing Buddhist meditation for a little over 30 years and in his book explores the deep, lasting impact that psychedelic-assisted sacred medicine therapy has had on his ability to cope with childhood psychological injury/trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and addiction.
