New subscriber, who dis?
Hello, welcome! Thanks for visiting.
I’m Maria - a former creative, turned writer, inner work coach, meditation teacher, psychedelic integration specialist and trainee transpersonal psychotherapist based in London, UK.
At the end of 2019 I quit my job in advertising to become as a psychedelic therapist. I thought the journey would be straightforward, but I quickly fell victim to the Dunning-Kruger effect - but in the opposite way. Since quitting my old career I’ve trained extensively and continue to do so.
And I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the wonderful and mysterious things I was learning with other curious minds. In fact, part of my reason for leaving advertising was that I also wanted more time to write - anything, really, as long as it held value beyond the commercial nonsense I was previously paid to create. And so Begin Again was born.
What should I expect?
A monthly-ish essay from me, discussing a variety of topics related to psychology, Jungian analysis, trauma, meditation, consciousness, and psychedelics. My aim is to share these theories with you in a way that makes sense and inspires you to examine your life a bit differently - with a bit more depth, curiosity, and humour.
