Cody Wiggs : Ketamine Assisted Therapy (#36)

Episode Summary

Cody is pioneering an entirely unique approach to Ketamine Assisted Therapy that blends modern therapeutic practices, mindfulness practices, and ancient ceremony and ritual to create deep shifts in conscious experience. Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is a safe and highly-effective modality for the resolution of treatment resistant depression (TRD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), chronic pain, anxiety disorders, and a variety of other mental and physical disorders. KAP also offers a unique opportunity for healthy individuals to create psycho-spiritual breakthroughs, discover creative solutions, and resolve unconscious patterns and self-limiting behaviors.

Episode Notes

In 2014 Cody watched as his father and close friend were swept over a 100 ft cliff by an avalanche - his own life still in balance on the precipice of that cliff. While they all survived, the impact of the event left a wound on Cody's psyche that the tools of traditional psychotherapy he had been trained in were inadequate to heal. Determined to find a way back to himself, he set out on a journey.

From ancient ceremonies in the jungles of Peru, rites of passage in the remote islands of British Columbia, indigenous healing rituals here in Colorado to immersions in yogic and meditative lineages and a re-education in graduate level courses; Cody faced his own darkness head on and explored every healing modality he could find. Now he is walking those lessons back into the world - for the good of all.

Cody is also the author of a K-8 Mindfulness-Based Social & Emotional Learning Curriculum, Empowering Minds, and the Executive Director of the non-profit, Empowering Education. He frequently presents on the topics of mindfulness, social & emotional learning, and trauma and coaches educators, parents, and children in mindfulness. He continues to engage life full force as an avid mountain biker, rock climber, backcountry skier, yogi, fly fisher, and amateur poet.

Cody's deep purpose is creating a more compassionate world by helping other's to heal the cores wounds of their heart and connect with their own purpose.
