Like most humans, Jack McIntyre has always been searching and seeking for more pleasure and less pain. Early into adulthood, that meant sex, drugs, alcohol and dreams of being a rockstar. But he quickly realized that that path didn't work... so he continued searching.
He wrestled with anxiety and depression along the way, exploring a range of therapies and solutions including antidepressants, CBT, talk therapy, meditation, psychedelics and somatic therapy.
In this episode, he talks about the benefits and drawbacks of the various therapies he tried. He also tells the story of a traumatic ayahuasca ceremony that he compares to a car crash... as well as one of the distinct advantages somatic therapy has over just about everything else when it comes to anxiety and depression.
