“Surrender is proportional to the amount of security and trust you offer“ – Ian-Michael Hébert.
In Costa Rica, I heard about Ian when training Edward Zaydelman in Holistic High-Performance in February. Ed, who knew him and had interviewed him, spoke to me fascinated about his great expertise in holistic healing and therapies, as well as his great art in designing sustainable spaces taking advantage of the properties and attributes of nature, and his great and extensive experience as a guide. And therapist in psychedelic experiences. Without a doubt, a new disruptor to interview.
I wrote down his name, and a few weeks later, we contacted Ian-Michael Hébert to explore the possibility of interviewing him for the podcast.
“One of the great tragedies of the moment is that some languages and cultures are being lost“
