Psychedelic Studies Intensive - MASTERCLASS
After two years and 60 students meeting entirely virtually, the Psychedelic Studies Intensive is evolving into its next phase. The July cohort will not only continue to have its core teachings taught online but an additional week has been added that is 100% experiential at Evolution Retreats in Negril, Jamaica. This is done in partnership with Evolution Retreats. You will get the opportunity to experience two legal psilocybin journeys and gather in person with me to put these teachings into practice.
This is an incredible opportunity to gather in community and to learn some of the essential knowledge surrounding the history, use, science, research and modern applications of psychedelic assisted therapy and harm reduction methods in the spirit of cognitive liberty.
The eight weeks of online learning are perfectly complimented by one week of experiential legal psilocybin assisted therapy at Evolution Retreats which is at the beautiful Tensing Pen in Negril, Jamaica. Here you will take the in-class teachings and see them applied to a real world setting while also experiencing the magic of the plant medicine.
No matter what stage of the psychedelic journey that you are on, I am confident that this course will convey information and teachings that are appropriate for you. Whether you are currently a licensed therapist, a medical professional, an experienced psychonaut, a harm reduction advocate or just a curious cultural seeker – there is room for you in this ever expanding community.
Please note: While the legal landscape is constantly changing within the psychedelic space please note that this program is designed to serve as a harm reduction method and takes a psycho-spiritual approach to psychedelic assisted therapy and overall psychedelic medicine studies. It by no means certifies you as a medical professional or certifies you in any legal capacity to work with these medicines.
