It feels like I’ve been on the cusp of a plant medicine experience for years, but there’s still this hesitancy holding me back. If you’re like me, where this stuff fascinates you but you aren’t sure what to really make of it, today’s guests are here to help. Azrya and Benjamin “Bee” Bequer co-founded Beqoming after meeting each other and having some radically transformative experiences. One was deeply embedded in the entertainment industry before realizing it wasn’t fulfilling her, while the other discovered that he was trapped in a cycle of perpetual stress despite finding tremendous success. Together, they set out to break the patterns in their life that kept them trapped. We’re going to talk about what that looked like, and how (if you’re ready) you can take that journey yourself.
