#1 New York Times Bestselling Author on Overcoming Unworthiness From Poverty & Shame Around Sexuality To Discovering Self-Love, the Love of His Life, & Deeper Impact with Keith Ferrazzi & Brandon Evans


Keith Ferrazzi is a #1 New York Times best-selling author & a highly successful executive team coach. But even with all of his success, he still lacked a sense of self-love.

From his hard work with work, life, love, & psilocybin to the gifts & insights 1heart’s ayahuasca experience gave him, Keith’s wisdom, humor, & commitment pour into this insightful & vulnerable conversation.

DISCLAIMER: In sharing stories from leaders who have used plant medicine, including ayahuasca, to elevate their lives, we are not recommending it to you or suggesting that it will have the same results. Each individual will react differently to the medicine, which can be largely shaped by the set and setting of your experience as well as your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual state prior to joining. If you’re interested in this or a similar experience, we recommend you do your own research and speak to others who have done it so you can best determine if it is a good fit for you at this time. Should you decide to do so, we strongly suggest doing so with great reverence and respect for the medicine and the powerful effects it can create in your life. We also recommend anyone working with this medicine spend time preparing themselves before their ceremony(s) and have resources lined up to support them in their integration post-ceremony(s).

Also, it is important to note that the plants and compounds mentioned in this post are still illegal in many countries, and even possession can carry severe criminal penalties. None of this post constitutes medical advice or should be construed as a recommendation to use psychedelics. There are serious legal, psychological, and physical risks. Psychedelics are not for everyone—they can exacerbate certain emotional problems, and there have been, in very rare cases, fatalities.
