Closure Optional Ep. 36 – Steve McDonald, PRISM

Closure Optional Ep. 36 – Steve McDonald, PRISM

Steve is a Australian Military Veteran who cured his debilitating PTSD through the exploration of altered states of consciousness; states induced by martial Arts, meditation, and yes, psychedelic compounds. He is one of the founders of PRISM, a non-profit organisation that works to develop and integrate psychedelic research back into mainstream science and medicine in Australia.

Steve is a change consultant and researcher currently specialising in the future of human consciousness, and this is a great conversation about adapting to change, both on a personal level and at a global scale. We discuss climate change, the evolution of human awareness, and the importance of set, setting, and education in exploring altered states of consciousness.
