The Art of Living Well Podcast®

Jan 18, 2023

Today's podcast is about a somewhat controversial, yet mind opening and fascinating topic: psychedelics.  Our guest is Matt Zemon who believes that psychedelics can play a powerful role in healing and connecting us to our most authentic selves. 

Matt is a serial entrepreneur and the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of, a mental health company on a mission to improve people’s happiness by providing guided ketamine therapy and digital wellness programs. Matt recently authored the book “Psychedelics for Everyone: A Beginner’s Guide to these Powerful Medicines for Anxiety, Depression, Addiction, PTSD, and Expanding Consciousness” which you will hear about towards the end of this conversation. 

In today’s episode you will learn:

  • What are psychedelics, and the different varieties, including Ketamin (the only one currently legal in the US), mushrooms, MDMA, peyote, LSD, psilocybin & Ayahuasca.
  • The benefits of Ketamine and how it is being used safely to help individuals battling depression, trauma, anxiety and more.
  • Who is a good candidate for exploring and considering the use of psychedelics.
  • Why it’s important to work with someone experienced with these healing modalities and why setting an intention is critical to healing.  
  • How to find a reputable provider and guide if you choose to try psychelics.
