On her site, she writes about why she created the Trip On This podcast

“Early man had every right to be highly cautionary with many scary creatures out to eat them. But what’s our story? Even though we know we wouldn’t be on the menu of some hungry carnivore, there are still many who can’t shake their fear of the unknown. Saying ‘no’ rather than ‘yes’ feels safer, even though it shuts us down to new adventure and dulls our life.

Psychedelics allowed me to say yes.

Yes to bold possibilities. Yes to big dreams. Yes to a magnificent life.

When I began to shed the old layers of fear, and opened myself up to a new way of being with deep trust and surrender in my heart, a new vision began to appear. It showed me that everything is possible. That there is nothing holding us back. That when we walk in the direction of our Higher Self and allow the inner voice to guide us, our steps become lighter, our relationships become richer, our love becomes deeper, and life becomes the miracle it is.

Trip On This is my vision and hope for the world. It’s exciting when we discover the incredible power within. We all have it. It’s not a secret, it’s a choice.

Let’s all keep the dream alive of a better world.”
