Having experienced the transformational power of psychedelics herself, Celeste is primarily interested in their use to treat addiction. Understanding that no medication is a magic cure-all, she advocates for educated, responsible, and respectful use of psychedelics in conjunction with other measures that elevate the health of oneself, one's community, and the surrounding environment. Celeste is the creator of The Psober Psychonaut, a platform for those who have reached their sobriety goals using psychedelics to share their stories. By spreading awareness of (p)sober voices, she aims to erode the stigma around addiction and psychedelics, cultivate wellness, and provide accessible education to boost the collective psychedelic IQ. If you'd like your (p)sober voice to be heard or share common interests, please feel welcome to reach out.

Deborah grew up in Philadelphia, graduated Temple University, situated on the site of the ministry of Russell Conwell, author “Acres of Diamonds”, the classic treatise on abundance, awareness, and presence. Her love for the Grateful Dead brought her to Berkeley, CA where she studied a variety of bodywork and energy modalities, Chinese medicine, Rebirthing, and meditation.

Deborah was at the first Burning Man and by the age of 30 she studied with Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, experienced her first ayahuasca ceremony, and met the Dalai Lama. It was during a Dark Night of the Soul breast cancer diagnosis in 2011 that she returned to psychedelics for healing and a new way of living.

Deciding to launch a Podcast forced me to confront a huge loss in my life. In order to move forward with the programming, I had to face my own Trauma.
For so many of my formative early 20s, I was obsessed with my role as a college radio DJ on 90.3 FM KUSF San Francisco. In this role, I used the DJ name Badman. I loved being the Badman. I hosted a 3 hour radio show called "Badman Free Radio" on Thursday afternoon from 3-6 PM. On Sunday night, I hosted a 1 hour radio show with my best friends, Dr. Fugu Fish and MCRocktheMic called the Space ProgramX29. Being on the radio with my friends was a highlight of my life.
In 2012, Dr. Fugu Fish committed Suicide. For 10 years, I had buried my grief and my feelings of intense loss for my brother Jorgen. Getting back on the Mic to start the Psychedelic Revolution opened up many of the painful memories and wounds I still carry. However, I have worked myself to a place where I am able to forgive Dr. Fugu Fish.
For so many years, I carried immense anger for his decision to blow his brains out. I was pissed about him for taking his life and no longer being part of my life. I was sad for him but mostly angry. After ten years, I have been able to process this loss more and I still miss my friend immensely but now I realize how much I loved him.
In order to get back in the Mic, I had to confront my emotions and feelings about this trauma and I am finally able to move back into my passion to be on the "radio" in the form of this podcast.
I dedicate this first Episode of the Psychedelic-Revolution to my brother and best friend Dr. Fugu Fish, AKA Jorgen Stensson. We all miss and Love You.
If you are having depression or suicidal thoughts, please know that you are also loved as much as Dr. Fugu Fish was loved by me and ask for help. Help is always available. 800-273-8255 is a national suicide hotline number and there is a friend on the other end. Life will get better, I promise.
Sincerely Your Friend,
