Military veterans, PTSD, forgiveness, and psychedelic-assisted healing with former Navy SEAL, Michael Higgs

In this episode of the Psychedelic Therapy Frontiers podcast, Dr. Steve Thayer and Dr. Reid Robison are joined by former Navy SEAL, Michael Higgs. Since retiring from a long military career, Michael has worked as the Director of Programs at The Honor Foundation–a unique transition institute created to help members of the U.S. Special Operations community realize their maximum potential during and after their elite service careers. He has also served as Director of Operations at The Mission Within–a 6 week entheogenic psycho-spiritual therapy program focussed primarily on Special Operations Forces veterans, combat veterans, first responders, and contact sports athletes who suffer from treatment-resistant and complex conditions such as Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTbi), Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), Depression, and/or addictions.
Michael discusses his personal healing journey with psychedelics, his approach as preparation and integration coach, the unique challenges military members and veterans face when seeking help for trauma and moral injury, the importance and power of self-love and forgiveness, and much more.
