Freeport, Maine-based family physician Selma Holden, M.D. (40), recently finished Harvard Medical School’s Integrative Medicine post-doctoral research fellowship. She believes “more in skills than pills” for helping people heal, and weaves mindfulness, yoga, herbs and other complementary techniques into her clinical repertoire. A 016mother, she’s particularly interested in maternal wellness. She was awarded a 2016 Plant Spirit Grant and has returned home from her adventure. Through ayahuasca, she said, she was looking for “connection with truth, re-engagement with energy and motivation, and a clearer vision to do what’s needed for the world—doing the best I can with the privileges I’ve been given.” Holden was also awarded a Women of the Psychedelic Renaissance grant to write about her ayahuasca experiences for peers and colleagues in the integrated medical field and beyond. She is working on her story and presentation now.

Holden will also present at MAPS Psychedelic Science 2017 conference in April.
