The Secret To BEQOMING Everything You Didn’t Know You Wanted w/Azrya & Benjamin Bequer EP 365

Azrya and Benjamin Bequer are the co-founding stewards of BEQOMING, a platform that provides transformational tools, stories, and media to help people see beyond the veil of who they thought they were supposed to be and awaken their full-spectrum aliveness.

On today’s episode, Lance, Benjamin and Azrya talk about how to free yourself from things that restrain you and follow your intuition. They talk about what it means to be unfuckwithable in the world we live in and how plant medicine and psychedelic experiences have brought them on an accelerated path of transformation.

🥇“What advice do you have for someone who is struggling with adversity right now”🥇

Benjamin says “Our egos are often the thing that keeps us from being fully alive. We use our egos to wall up and protect ourselves but they actually end up doing the opposite of protecting us.”

Lance Essihos

As an experienced veteran with adversity, Lance has faced some of life's most difficult challenges. Grinding his way through the hockey ranks to traveling the world as a bartender. Through his personal battle with drugs and alcohol for well over a decade, the tragic loss of his brother to suicide followed by the great loss of his father to cancer only a year later, Lance realized he had hit rock bottom. In the darkest of days, he made a promise to himself that he would create a new life, one that would make an impact and inspire the masses, leaving the world in a better place than he found it. Lance has made it his mission to facilitate the message of positive change through adversity and encourage people to see the light through the darkness of life's worst moments.
