Healing Trauma, Channeling & Plant Medicine

Derek Loudermilk interviews Michael Thornhill in this inspiring podcast episode from the Derek Loudermilk Show (The Art of Adventure)

Here is Derek Loudermilk's introduction below...

"Today’s guest is the cofounder of Casa Galactica, Michael Thornhill, a retreat center in the Peruvian Amazon.

This episode is significant because we get into the subject of childhood trauma and healing – Michael experienced ritual abuse as a child and Ayahuasca was a major part of his healing and recovery process form this. We talk about the widespread nature of trauma and what tools are available to help heal and move past such events.

In the second part of the episode we get to experience Michael channeling the consciousness of a group of interdimensional beings – in this instance represented by the “Arcturian Collective” – I ask about Time, Dimensions, Densities, Pets, Love, and Astrology"
