For episode 50 of the Let’s Talk Mental Health Podcast I am joined by the incredible Sean Houlihan who is also known as The Intention Coach and also known as Bear Intentions.
Sean has lived an incredible life and shares with us some of the struggles that he faced with his mental health growing up and into adulthood.
One of the reasons myself and Sean became connected was because I wanted to talk with someone who has had a first hand experience with Ayahuasca.
Sean has trained to be a Shaman and having drunk Ayahuasca over 25 times he seemed like a perfect person to speak with about the medicine and the impact it had for him.
We dive deep into his first experiences with Ayahuasca and how that led him to his work now as The Intention Coach. Sean holds nothing back and explains in fantastic detail some of the fascinating visions and experiences he had and how they impacted his life.
Sean also tells us how Ayahuasca gave him the inspiration to create Bear Intentions, an account where he now shares his poetry with the world with the help of a handful of characters who he shares with us in this episode.
This is an amazing conversation which covers so many different topics and after almost 2 hours it felt like we had still only just scratched the surface of what we could talk about.
I strongly urge you to follow Sean on his Instagram accounts and if you want to look at ways you could work with him, then check out his website too.

The concept for “Let’s Talk Mental Health” is quite straight forward. To chat with my guest in a neutral comfortable environment where we can be open and honest about mental health issues and talk about our own experiences.
Men need to talk more about Mental Health and this series is looking to address that by showcasing what others have been through and highlighting that vulnerability is a strength.
