In this episode I welcome a colleague and a very dear friend of mine, women’s health psychiatrist, Dr. Kelly Brogan. I previously interviewed Kelly in one of my all-time favorite episodes titled, Ep 15: Telling the Truth in a World of Lies. This week Kelly releases her second book called Own Your Self, in which she explores what she calls the “five reversible physical drivers of so-called mental illness” and how to take a “deeper dive into the spiritual awakening and expansion that comes from reclaiming yourself from conventional medicine”.
In this episode she shares tips from the trenches related to her own life and practice. We talk specifically about getting curious about your wounds, understanding your defense mechanisms, and putting more value and importance on practices that amplify your radiance as opposed to productivity and intellect.
