Waking Up to More of Ourselves with
Filmmaker Ben Joseph Stewart

In this episode, Laura Dawn interviews documentary filmmaker and producer of the Psychedelica series featured on Gaia TV, Ben Joseph Stewart to talk about optimal human potential, Pseudoscience, DMT, belonging and what it means to wake up to more of ourselves.

Psychedelics can open the door to allow us to see more, to experience more, and witness more, but I don’t believe that that’s the end. I think it’s a means to get us to awaken. To what? To more of ourselves. More of the parts of ourselves that we haven’t yet identified as being “me”.
