Mindset, Meditation, and Plant Medicine: Core Evolution with Shawn Wells

What life changes could you make in order to thrive and take full advantage of the time you've been given? Repeat guest Shawn Wells and I discuss his experience with plant therapeutics, meditation, and mindset shift and how they have made such a positive impact on his life.

Shawn battled depression, auto-immune disorders, and chronic pain before making the decision to become a biochemist in order to serve others and help them optimize their health and live a life with less pain and more joy. Right before the Covid shutdown in 2020, Shawn had his first experience with plant medicine, and that led him to fundamentally change his mindset and approach to life. I look forward to welcoming Shawn to our place in Arkansas so we can discuss his book, The Energy Formula, and the impact he's making with his clients.
