After the multiple family tragedies that I endured in my life, I’ve been on a quest to to find meaning and to heal the wounds that each trauma left. My mother died when I was 14, my 9-year-old brother was murdered when I was 19, and my sister committed suicide when I was 36.
Getting back my physical health through nutrition and exercise after my brother was murdered was my first healing experience. My mood, energy, and strength returned as I focused on moving my muscles and nourishing my body with healthy foods. I also found that I had a gift in helping others gain back their health and youthfulness.
Then I found my self-confidence and power in martial arts and public speaking. Without Brazilian jiu-jitsu, I would’ve never had the courage to take the action necessary to continue to grow and to share my story. Public speaking provided a cathartic release of painful emotions while allowing me to positively impact thousands of others.
But the most powerful experience that changed my life was an ayahuasca retreat I did in Costa Rica at a place called Rythmia.
I’ll be honest, when this opportunity came up to attend a plant-medicine ceremony I didn’t want to do it. I know from my past experiences with psychedelics that it would bring up painful memories from my past. After 9 months in Asia, I had gone through a complete transformation physically and mentally. I wasn’t convinced that a trip to the jungle was what I needed next to reach a higher level.
After much deliberation, I decided to go. And what happened next changed my life.
Listen to this episode with CEO and founder of Rythmia, Gerry Powell, as I discuss my experience with him to make sense of of what happened.
