Dr. Alicia Danforth explains the incredible healing benefits of combining psychedelics with traditional psychotherapy. Dr. Danforth, a transpersonal psychotherapist, is an expert researcher in this field and explains the medicinal benefits of psilocybin (the psychoactive compound in 'magic mushrooms'). Dr. Danforth was a lead researcher in the Harbor UCLA Medical Center study that found psilocybin reduced anxiety in patients diagnosed with terminal cancer. In the study, 12 subjects diagnosed with advanced-stage cancer and anxiety were given psilocybin which improved their moods and reduced anxiety for the long term. Dr. Danforth describes why she thinks MDMA has the potential to treat individuals with an autism spectrum disorder. Dr. Danforth also details the psychedelic psychotherapy process and safety protocols for those conducting this type of therapy at home.
The Calbuco volcano in southern Chile is erupting for the first time in 42 years, spewing huge amounts of ash into the atmosphere and prompting evacuations across a 24-mile wide area. And the results are absolutely stunning.

We hypothesized that high-socially-anxious individuals (HSA) may exhibit elevated mentalizing and empathic abilities.”
The research methods were as follows: “Empathy was assessed using self-rating scales in HSA individuals (n=21) and low-socially-anxious (LSA) individuals (n=22), based on their score on the Liebowitz social anxiety scale. A computerized task was used to assess the ability to judge first and second order affective vs. cognitive mental state attributions.”
Remarkably, the scientists found that a large portion of people with social anxiety disorder are gifted empaths —
people whose right-brains are operating significantly above normal levels and are able to perceive the physical sensitivities, spiritual urges, motivations, and intentions of other people around them (see Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor’s TED Talk below for a powerful explanation of this ability).
The team’s conclusion reads: “Results support the hypothesis that high-socially-anxious individuals demonstrate a unique profile of social-cognitive abilities with elevated cognitive empathy tendencies and high accuracy in affective mental state attributions...”
Empaths who have fully embraced their abilities are able to function on a purely intuition-based level.
It’s already had three cataclysmic eruptions over the last 2 million years, covering much of North America in ash and creating the massive crater 40 kilometers long (25 miles long) and 60 kilometers wide (37 miles wide) that we now call Yellowstone...
