“In that moment it was like I was feeling my body for the first time. It was like I could sense this part of me that I had locked away or forgotten.”
In this episode of Adventures of the Psyche, we are joined by Hanifa Washington, who shares how an ayahuasca journey showed her the first time she began a lifelong habit of dissociation, and taught her how to reconnect to her body.
