The Psychedelic Integration Podcast with Mystical Heart Collective is a weekly conversation series exploring the complete journey through healing with psychedelics. Each week hosts Sinclair Fleetwood and John Steiner will share insights, experience, and coaching around preparation, navigation, and integration, and get real about the lifelong journey of working with psychedelic medicines.
The Mayo Clinic defines anxiety as "Intense, excessive, and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations." Anxiety disorders are the most common mental disorders in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year. Through the lens of Western medicine, anxiety is seen one of many mental health disorders that are becoming more prevalent and less treatable through that same system. In short, we are becoming more and more anxious, phobic, and full of fear and panic, and there is less and less that modern medicine seems to be able to do about it.
Enter plant medicines! Psychedelics have shown to be a promising, effective, rapid (and scientifically proven) treatment for anxiety disorders. On this episode of The Psychedelic Integration Podcast, we're diving into how anxiety harms us, and how psychedelics can help treat anxiety. And we'll talk about how they do this by actually getting to our root causes of anxiety, helping us find understanding, insight, and providing tools to help us forge a path of empowerment, relief, and self-healing. Learn about what you need to know to get prepared to work with psychedelics to heal anxiety, how to seek help, and understand why it's important to have an integration plan to support you throughout your journey.

We're getting a little esoteric on this week's episode of The Psychedelic Integration Podcast, aiming to challenge some of the limiting narratives we see around psychedelics and what they actually do for us, as well as to inspire some critical thinking and understanding of what psychedelic integration looks like in practice. So, WTF is spiritual alchemy?
Join us for a conversation about the historical origins of alchemy and where this concept comes from, all the way into our modern day thinking where we run into all kinds of myths and misconceptions around the actual methods of transforming darkness into light. What does that actually look like in daily life, and how can psychedelics help awaken us to our own magical powers of creation? We'll talk about what being a real life spiritual alchemist really looks like, and we'll give you some guidance on how to turn on the lights in your own psychedelic healing journey.
On this week’s episode of The Psychedelic Integration Podcast we’re having a conversation about releasing fear with psychedelics. We often half-joke about how psychedelics literally help us escape from The Matrix, but the truth is that we live in a society where fear, anxiety, worry, and stress are manufactured to keep us divided and disempowered. Our modern society has us constantly plugged into news, entertainment, and social media that hijacks our vibration with a constant feed of “Be Afraid. Don’t Trust People Different Than You. There’s Something Wrong with You. Buy This to Feel Better.”
Whether we are conscious of it or not, consuming news and media that makes us feel bad about ourselves and the world creates illness in our bodies and minds, and distracts us from all the possibility, opportunity, and magic we could have in our lives instead.
This week on The Psychedelic Integration Podcast, we're having a conversation about the power of intention to unlock psychedelics and level up our experiences. So many of us find our way to psychedelics through recreational use, and often having fun is the gateway to discovering the magical powers of these master teachers.
When we understand we have the power (through intention) to build a relationship with the spirits of the medicines, rather than just treating the experience as a thing that happens to us outside of our control, well, it's kind of a game changer.
We define and discuss intention, talk about why recreational use unfairly gets a bad rap, and share our personal experiences of transitioning from less mindful recreational use to ceremonial use, and what we've learned along the way. We'll also talk about how to find your intention, shift your mindset, and get the most out of your growing understanding of how psychedelics can heal and help you in your daily life.
It's ok and good to have fun and enjoy yourself, even when you're healing!
Adding intention into the mix, even if that intention is to enjoy yourself, connect with others, and have fun, helps create a conversation with the medicines, allowing an opening to expanding our consciousness and awareness, and leading to personal growth and healing.
In this week's podcast, we dive into anger and the different ways it manifests and expresses itself in our lives. We speak to our own personal experiences of healing anger and rage through psychedelics, and we offer some practical things you can do to start getting a handle on anger through awareness, attention, and healthy coping mechanisms. We will also talk about what to do when you need to tell someone you're angry with them, what to express and when, and how to do it with grace and balance.
It is possible to express and process anger in a way that feels good and healthy!
Whether we are prone to repression or explosion, anger is actually not our enemy. It's our ally. Anger is the messenger with a dire warning that SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE. So how do we move from rageaholic to rational, clear, calm expressions of anger? Psychedelics have so much to teach us about transforming anger and how we react and respond to it.
