Podcast Episode 221: Rock Bottom Breakthroughs & Connecting with Your Inner Self with Eddy Phimphrachanh

Today on the show, Samantha is joined by nightclub owner turned psychedelic guide, Eddy Phimphrachang. After close to a decade of owning and operating a restaurant and nightclub, Eddy experienced a health and life crisis that became the catalyst for his transition into the health and fitness industry, as a gym owner and beach body extraordinaire. Although this was a step in the right direction, Eddy’s physical and mental health complications still lingered in these roles. Nowadays, Eddy lives in Toronto, working on his urban home sanctuary where he helps clients shed layers of mental and emotional stress through bodywork, breathwork, and guided psychedelic experiences. In this episode, Eddy and Samantha break down each step of Eddy’s remarkably diverse journey from 19 year-old restaurant owner to becoming a full-time psychedelic facilitator.

  • How Eddy went from 19-year-old entrepreneur to psychedelic facilitator
  • Eddy’s shift of focus from his external world to his internal world

  • “I knew people were struggling on a deeper level. They didn’t need more beach body clients, they needed mental and emotional support. And I did too and that’s what was missing. It was always ‘sell, sell, sell!’, but I had these underlying wounds that we’re not addressed and I feel like that’s the root of many peoples’ health struggles.”

  • “I was 27 and I had all this success, money, a big car and a nice beautiful loft, but I was so unhappy. I still felt unfulfilled and had lingering health challenges. There was still something missing and I knew I had to go in.”

  • “When you’re in a habitual pattern, it’s like being on a hamster wheel. You can’t really change your thoughts. But when you’re exposed to different cultures, and a new way of being and living, your whole worldview gets shaken up.”
