Licensed psychotherapist, Dr. Cat Meyer, joins us to discuss her two areas of expertise, sex and psychedelics, while disclosing much about her own personal sexual journey, such as the time she first discovered her Dominant side while at BDSM party. However, her wild soul was not always so free. Cat’s childhood was mired with an eating disorder and sexual abuse. But quickly, she began to take her body back through yoga, somatic work and reiki in her early 20s. Then while getting her Ph.D., she discovered kink and tantra. Today, she is teaching courses on how all of this can blend together, such as her current kink and tantra class, to create epic relationships and an amazing sex life. In this episode, we discuss the power of trance states within bdsm scenes, tantra, and psychedelics. We also discuss how internal family systems psychotherapy can blend beautifully with psychedelic therapy to help people heal and grow. And in true Cat Meyer fashion, she starts the interview off by telling us the historic significance of pussy flashing as a way to control a crowd. Yes. You heard that right. And through out, she weaves myths and legends beautifully into her explanations of how we can grow both spiritually and sexually. Please join us for this incredibly sexy and intriguing episode as we once again dare to Open Deeply.
