FOT#6 - Daniel Greig discusses the neurobiological processes of addiction, trauma, psychedelic therapies, and thought processes of human beings

Flight of Thoughts

Release Date: 11/14/2018

This was a very intense, engaging conversation about the human brain and it’s processes. Why do some people thrive in chaos and others fall apart? Why do psychedelics help heal trauma? Daniel Greig has been studying cognitive science and philosophy at the University of Toronto with a growing passion about psychedelic science, advocacy, and education. He volunteers with the Canadian Students for a Sensible Drug Policy (CSSDP) and runs a psychedelic seminar series. We talk about what happens in the human brain when we experience traumatic events, addictive impulses, psychedelic healing, near-death experiences, and other important neurological processes! We also explain the five default human responses to a life-threatening moment or crisis; as well as how to recognize which one you are prone to when you enter a situation that is "do or die".
