Geoff Larden is the co-founder of BoldxCentred, a Toronto-based grassroots community organization that facilitates a variety of community initiatives. A restless adventurer, Geoff has shed many lives on a journey within to get to know himself and his purpose. His travels have taken him to the jungles of Peru where he learned a lot about himself and explored other realms going ever deeper into the practice of plant medicine, guided by respected shamans. In this intimate conversation, he opens up about struggling with a hyper-masculine attitude that would prevent him from even admitting he had addiction problems. He talks openly about his struggle, his run-ins with the law, and the rocky road out of selling drugs and being addicted, to a complete reinvention and discovery of the self through techniques such as vipassana meditation and plant medicine ceremonies.
