We all have trauma and pain that is buried deep inside us. It’s not a matter of IF we do, but of what it is.
On the latest episode of Connecting Minds, I talk with Peter Conley of Integration Station about healing past wounds by accessing and releasing stored traumas using various modalities. We also discuss the all-important topic of integrating peak experiences so we may truly benefit from them.
Peter Conley is the Founder of Integration Station, a resource for Psychedelic Integration. Integration Station provides protocols, tools, and awareness of modalities to improve your mental health and performance. He is a certified yoga instructor, completed a 10-day silent Vipassana meditation retreat, and advocates for the responsible use of altered states of consciousness as therapeutic modalities.
