Almost everyone who is dying expresses fear and anxiety about death. One year after our initial visit with artist and teacher Andrea Bird, we checked back in with her. Now, as part of 28 Canadians granted legal exemptions, Andrea has received permission to use psilocybin, aka magic mushrooms. With the help of supervised mushroom and Ketamine therapy, Andrea is dealing with her end-of-life distress. Along with Dr. Sean O’Sullivan, she sheds some light on this new alternative therapy method that has been considered immensely successful for some in helping those with end-stage anxiety.
