I love Payam. He is a man who lives in his heart and walks his talk. With all the many people offering entheogens, I know him to be a skilled and ethical practitioner. In our talk, we not only explore what healing is and how his work facilitates the transformation of trauma, but also how every effort spent doing this sacred work affects the whole planet in this time of peril and promise.
Here is his website and read below for his bio: payam.com

Payam is a Psychedelic Somatic Internal Family Systems (IFS) Practitioner and Medicine Carrier, who interfaces with various traditional and non-traditional psychedelic compounds in the treatment of trauma and chronic pain.
He collaborates internationally with world-renowned Surgeons, Physicians, Psychiatrists and Therapists in the treatment of an underserved population. Additionally, he has presented his work at numerous medical conferences reporting on the nature of pain through the unitary Mind-Body paradigm while also demonstrating how to alleviate pain at the intersection of traditional shamanic psychedelic medicines and Western evidence-based practices.
His work factors in the biopsychosocial (BSP), spiritual and energetic elements of healing. By acknowledging and addressing the totality of the human experience, he has seen firsthand how it can have a dramatic effect on mitigating the patient’s affective experience of trauma and pain.
