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

You are your spirit

Make Your Medicine is a collaborative project that seeks to explore our innermost feelings, to help develop mindfulness and empathy, and to encourage our becoming of the people who we are destined to be. It’s an 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 path that leads to self-healing, awareness and personal enlightenment starts with curiosity. You very simply have to want to know more.

MYM pulls from medical, philosophical and spiritual exploration to provide a starting point from which to begin this journey. Browse the inspiration of MYM.
