Traumadelic Culture: Putting Soul Back in Psychedelics with Brian James

Brian James: Traumadelic Culture: Putting Soul Back in Psychedelics, Episode 121, The Psychedelic Entrepreneur Podcast

Brian James is an Archetypal Coach, musician, artist and cultural activist based outside of Victoria BC, Canada. Over the past decade he has dedicated himself to helping other creatives and changemakers find their soul’s purpose and bring their unique vision to life.

He has trained in multiple therapeutic modalities and holds certificates in Thomas Moore’s Soul Psychology, Compassionate Inquiry and Dream Tending.

“Everything I do is informed by my working class upbringing and values, as well as decades of spiritual seeking and practice and immersion in the study of depth and archetypal psychology, history, philosophy and shamanism.”

His work is fueled by a revolutionary spirit that seeks to dismantle oppressive and hierarchical systems (inner and outer) through processes of soul recovery, decolonization, cultural activism and community-building.

Brian is inspired by the “crazy wisdom” of Carl Jung, James Hillman, Thomas Moore, Max Gimblett, UG Krishnamurti, TKV Desikachar, Alejandro Jodorowsky and other renegade psychologists, healers, artists and tricksters.
