Ep 02 How Guided Psychedelic Journeys Changed My Life


Sheri Salata is a world-class producer and transformation guide who leads women around the globe in creating limitless lives. Sheri dove into the deep end of the personal growth pool when she landed a job at 35 with Oprah Winfrey as an entry-level promotions producer and ultimately rose to Executive Producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show and Co-President of Harpo Studios and OWN.

Her memoir, The Beautiful No: And Other Tales of Trial, Transcendence and Transformation, is a journey through failure, despair, disappointment and anxiety until she finally arrived at the life of her dreams, which she began to fully manifest at 56.

Today, Sheri lives in full service to the divine feminine. She has created two revolutionary membership communities. The first, The Support System, is for women who are passionate about expanding the possibilities for their lives. And to help women succeed in business, she co-created the Prosper Network.

As she says on her website, she’s here to remind us that life is meant to be dazzling.

Ep 03 When The Medicine Says No

In this episode, I dive into the recent developments in the psychedelic world, exploring the FDA advisory panel’s surprising vote against the use of MDMA for treating PTSD. Join us as I unpack the implications of this decision and reflect on what it means for the future of psychedelic therapy.
To put it in context, I provide a little historical back story on how MDMA became a Schedule I drug. I then discuss the history of MAPS and their tireless work to bring MDMA back into the therapeutic world as a legal medicine.
I talk about the wisdom of the medicine, lessons on integrity, ethical standards, and the importance of accountability in psychedelic therapy. Finally, I explore the difference between intention and expectation in psychedelic experiences and how the medicine can often say no to us when we show up with an expectation instead of an open-minded intention.
Until next time, keep exploring and growing together!
