Carré Otis is a model, an author, a wellness consultant and coach, and an activist–fighting for gender equality, women’s rights, and an end to injustice of all kinds. Her memoir, Beauty Disrupted, documents the struggles that led to her spiritual practice, including trauma resulting from sexual assault at age 17 by her then-agent Gerald Marie, a prominent figure in the modeling industry. She is the co-founder of Victorious Angels, a collective of survivors of abuse perpetrated by Gerald Marie and Jean Luc Brunel fighting for legal changes to help bring perpetrators to justice. She is also on the Leadership Council of the Model Alliance, a non-profit working to establish fair labor standards for models, and the U.S. Ambassador for Knock Out Abuse, which supports survivors of domestic violence. Carré’s strong commitment to helping others reclaim physical and emotional health has inspired her work with the Bare Mama Project, which she co-founded with Sarah Spinner to provide a shame-free approach to transforming one’s relationship with alcohol, and as a certified coach with This Naked Mind.

The Thought Room is a combination of edge-of-your-seat storytelling and groundbreaking interviews with celebrated thought-leaders like Dr. Dennis McKenna, Justin Wren, Erick Godsey, Ollie Ollerton & Dorian Yates and many more from around the world.

Recorded everywhere from hotel rooms in New York City, to a camper van in Maine; from the coastal forests of Costa Rica, to a picnic blanket amongst grapes in a vineyard in Sedona—host Hallie Rose captures rich, face-to-face interviews and intimate storytelling in a variety of eccentric locations.

From musicians to mathematicians, life coaches to psychonauts, PhDs to professional athletes—we’ll invite them all to step into the Thought Room to spill their stories and share their most distilled wisdom. The show covers a breadth of topics including psychology, spirituality, sex & relationships, psychedelics, ayahuasca, non-violent communication, law of attraction, bio-hacking, fitness, nutrition, alternative health, personal development, business & entrepreneurship, mindfulness, yoga, and meditation.


Quotes from my guests on Psychedelics:

“Psychedelics are like a direct portal to the Psyche” – Erick Godsey

“What my experience with psychedelics has taught me is that all the magic is here!” – Kyle Buller

“The medicines have a way of changing one’s perspective powerfully and profoundly.” – Luke Storey

“Psychedelics are not suppressed because they are dangerous to users; they’re suppressed because they provoke unconventional thought, which threatens any number of elites and institutions that would rather do our thinking for us.” – Dr. Dennis McKenna


Quotes from my guests on Consciousness:

“I’m a true believer that our lives are a product of our imagination.” – Ollie Ollerton

“Never let those who lack belief in themselves rob you of yours.” – Dorian Yates

“Your ability to feel good in any kind of environment is up to you.” – Dr. Craig Koniver


Quotes from my guests on Ayahuasca:

“And I am leaving, knowing — I don’t want my dharma revealed to me…I want to create it, I want to walk it, I want to dance it, moment by moment. Thank you, Ayahuasca.” – Erick Godsey

“Ayahuasca is a symbiotic ally of the human species.” – Dennis McKenna


Celebrated guests include Dr. Dennis McKenna, Justin Wren, Erick Godsey, Ollie Ollerton & Dorian Yates.
