Today, Jonathan talks with Shane LeMaster. Shane earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO, completed extensive coursework towards a Master of Arts Degree in Sport & Performance Psychology at the University of Denver, and earned his Master of Arts Degree in Sport & Exercise Psychology from Argosy University. Shane is nationally certified as a Sport Psychology Consultant and a licensed mental health clinician in the state of Colorado.
Having worked in community non-profit mental health since
2008, Shane has gained experience working with the entire spectrum of mental disorders and with all populations and age groups. Shane plans on attending a Ph.D program in Counseling Psychology where his interest in Resiliency, Mental Toughness, and Mindfulness Training Program Development can be explored and further developed. He is a life-long athlete having competed at various levels in more than a dozen different sports. Because of his passion for warrior
cultures of past and present, Shane has been ardently developing his own “Warriorship,” training in
various forms of Martial Arts for 25 years. Shane feels that the self-discipline, the philosophy of non-violence, the innumerable mental and physical benefits, and the enjoyment that he gains from the Martial Arts is what helped drive his passion in the field of Psychology.
In this conversation, Jonathan and Shane discuss Psychedelic Science 2017, Shane’s work in addiction treatment, the strengths and weaknesses of the 12 steps, and how Shane is integrating his personal work with psychedelics into future professional endeavors. Enjoy.
