Processing the Trauma of Loneliness

Processing the Trauma of Loneliness

The goop Podcast - May 9, 2019 - 1:10:41

“Part of the reason why humans suffer is that we don’t honor the expression of these so-called weak emotions—meaning sadness, fear, and shame,” says psychiatrist Will Siu. In this moving conversation with new friend and goop chief content officer Elise Loehnen, Siu takes us through his experiences with loneliness and depression—both personally and as a clinician. Siu is educated by way of UC Irvine, UCLA medical school, the NIH, Harvard, and Massachusetts General Hospital and McLean Hospital. In other words: He’s a person that society deemed successful—and yet as he vulnerably explains, he still struggled. Today, Siu shares paths toward healing and connection, including what he’s learned from psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, or as he puts it, psychedelic-assisted humanity.
