EP 90: From Multi-Millionaire Failure to Spiritual Succes: The Power of Plant Medicine
January 07, 20203 min read
10 years ago, Gerry Powell was living the American Dream. He had just sold his company for $94 million, owned 5 houses, 20+ cars and 2 planes. But he wasn't happy. While his life looked like a dream from the outside, he was hooked on Demerol, was an alcoholic and suicidal. After several failed rehab attempts, his life didn't change until he was introduced to the plant medicine ayahuasca.
Fast forward to today and Gerry is living a life of peace, happiness and prosperity in Costa Rica after founding the world's highest rated resort which happens to center around the plant medicine and spiritual healing that changed his own life.
Tune in to hear the conversation he and Kris had while Kris was at a retreat at the world reknown Rythmia!
