In this edition of Warrior Radio, I sit down with Katherine MacLean, PhD, who is the Director of The Psychedelic Education and Continuing Care Program.

Before founding this organization, she was a postdoctoral research fellow and faculty member at John Hopkins University School of Medicine, an institute leading the current psychedelic research renaissance we are undergoing. At John Hopkins, Katherine published a breakthrough paper that found how effective psilocybin can be in personality change. She’s been a guide of numerous psilocybin session for volunteers and has come away with fascinating takeaways she shares in today’s episode.

Before joining John Hopkins, she worked at UC Davis’ International Shamatha Project, which is one of the leading research institutions studying the practice of meditation.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Katherine’s work with one of the leading meditation research program’s in the world called The International Shamatha Project by UC Davis
