I really don’t know who to trust.
Your message is an inspiration to those trying to wean of psychotropics as I did many years ago.
Great talk Steven, thanks
Steven, you’re an inspiration. It’s reassuring to me as one who hopes to one day wean off of medication (I have a forced medication order right now), to see a person who made it happen – with an exploration of avenues to wellness and a personal intuition that open dialogue’s rich exchange is really where it’s at, at least for a person such as yourself… I feel in consonance with you on that point… that the mutual validation of our respective digestions of life experience is how we heal and how we SUSTAIN the health of our souls moving forward.
Steven – thank you for a clear and inspiring presentation.
