A Journey of Post-Traumatic Growth with Nick Motycka

Episode 434: In this profoundly moving episode, we step into the life and transformation of Nick Motycka, a man who journeyed through the trenches of law enforcement, trauma, and ultimately, post-traumatic growth. Nick’s story is a testament to the incredible resilience of the human spirit.

Growing up in Alberta with a father in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Nick’s path seemed destined for a career in law enforcement. His story unfolds over 23 years, traversing various enforcement roles, from security to working with Canada Customs, the RCMP, and the Calgary Police Service. Nick was on the front lines, from street patrols to specialized units like the Crime Reduction Unit, Drug Unit, and Gang Suppression Team.

However, September 16th, 2020, marked a pivotal moment – his breakthrough, often known as a breakdown. Diagnosed with PTSD, Nick embarked on a courageous journey of healing. After countless psychologist and occupational therapist appointments, his true turning point came with a single psilocybin-assisted therapy session. With unwavering determination and clear intentions, Nick transitioned from severe PTSD to no longer meeting the criteria for any diagnosis.

With newfound clarity and the unwavering support of his family, Nick courageously stepped away from the only profession he’d ever known. Now, he’s on a mission to share his story of healing and post-traumatic growth with the world. Alongside his family, Nick is dedicated to his dream of introducing consciously made, natural fiber clothing through his apparel brand, Flow State Designs.

Join us for an episode that offers profound insights into the human spirit’s resilience, the transformative power of psilocybin therapy, and Nick’s inspiring journey from trauma to triumph. Prepare to be moved, inspired, and motivated to embrace your own path to healing and growth.
