A Chat with Uma
On A Chat with Uma, I bring all of my identities together to bring you honest and unfiltered conversations exploring our true human experiences in their fullest form. Every week, I’m bringing you conversations bridging the gap on all things neuroscience, psychology, mental health, lived experience, advocacy, psychedelics, research, and more.
This is where we look at our TRUE, unfiltered, raw, human experiences with vulnerability, honesty, compassion, curiosity, and empowerment. We explore who we are, how we are, how we exist and show up in the world, how our experiences, identities, environments, and biology shape us; and we witness our resilience, empowerment, nuance, choice, and acceptance of ourselves and our realities.
