A colorful sleep
Protecting me from nightmares
In my flower bed
— CIRO ORTIZ, EMOTIONAL ADVICE KID

MINDFULNESS, EMPATHY, and self exploration

Make Your Medicine is a collaborative entity that seeks to explore our innermost feelings, to help develop mindfulness and empathy, and to encourage the becoming of the people who we are destined to be. It’s purpose is to be a creative, explorative interface between ourselves and the ability we have to grow, to understand and address our emotional/psychological trauma, and to improve our lives.

The beginning of a path that leads to self-healing, inner reflection, and personal enlightenment starts with curiosity.

MYM pulls from well-established, progressive medical, philosophical and spiritual exploration to provide a starting point from which to begin this journey. Browse the inspiration of MYM. If you need help, check out the free resource page. Contact Adam for questions or collaborations below.
