June 11, 2021
This episode is about Charlotte Dune, Charlotte is an author and an extremely fascinating person. She has an amazing story that totally surprised me. It blew me away that as a very young diplomat she came out of a hippie hillbilly family, which was really a massive contrast. She has a journey that is not the ordinary kind of struggle we face in life. She lived in an environment where she had many challenges to do with her work, relationships, and addiction. She found a solution to her struggles a solution that has been around for thousands of years, she started using plant medicine in a therapeutic way. We also touched on some fundamentally deep and human places of love and peace that we are all looking for. And so I have to say this episode's a real journey.
Charlotte is the author of Cactus Friends a Psychedelic Love Story and Mushroom Honeymoon. 
She also has written a 31- day recovery writing workbook. You can find her latest book here:
