Welcome to the third episode of “So Now You Are Dying What Are You Doing To Live”? My guest this week is Andrea Bird. She's an incredible visual artist, teacher, wife and mother of 2. We had a great chat about how poetry and psilocybin have helped her cope with her diagnosis. She educated me on what it's like dying in a death phobic culture and how ones relationship with hope is ever changing. Honestly it was truly an amazing interview that has changed the way I will look at this podcast. Andrea is engaging, funny and insightful. http://andreabird.com
Psilocybin At Sunset (Learning How To Die) | Andrea Bird ~ ATTMind 125
Adventures Through The Mind
In 2017, Andrea Bird received her terminal diagnosis. In December of 2018, having no experience with it up to this point, she received underground psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy to grapple with the challenge of dying. She is on the show for this episode to share her psilocybin story publicly for the first time. (If you noticed this episode's mp3 dropped before the end, that was an issue on my end! The corrected file has been uploaded and should be available shortly.) --LINKS-- For links to Andrea's work, full show notes, and to watch this episode in video, head to https://bit.ly/ATTMind125 Full Topics Breakdown Below --- SUPPORT THIS PODCAST — ► Patreon: https://patreon.com/jameswjesso ► Donations: https://www.paypal.me/JWJesso ► Merchandise: https://www.jameswjesso.com/shop/ ► More options: https://www.jameswjesso.com/support/ ► Newsletter: https://www.jameswjesso.com/newsletter Extra BIG thanks to my patrons on Patreon for helping keep this podcast alive!
