Psychedelic Law Landscapes: Navigating Decriminalization and Regulatory Reforms

The landscape of psychedelic legal reforms is in a state of rapid evolution, with numerous pieces of pending legislation awaiting final decisions. These shifts in legal stances stem from a broader recognition of the potential therapeutic benefits and cultural reevaluations of psychedelics.

As these substances move towards rescheduling and decriminalization in what seems to be an erratic manner, practitioners find themselves at a crossroads. The evolving legal frameworks greatly influence practices and decision-making, compelling practitioners to consider both the opportunities and challenges of venturing into the psychedelic space.

Join Courtney Barnes, Esq. and David as they walk through what the current landscape looks like and where they posit that it’s going in the not-so-distant future.

Essential Skills and Education for Psychedelic Practitioners

A solid education in psychology, counseling, or psychotherapy can be foundational in starting a career in psychedelics, however, when it comes to the unique world of psychedelics, specialized training can become crucial to creating a sustainable practice.

It’s not just about textbooks and lectures; it’s also about understanding oneself. Doing inner work, becoming self-aware, and joining courses like Vital can help.

These courses not only boost learning but also help build people skills, leading to a more compassionate and human approach to the subject.

Join Emma Knighton and Johanna as they walk through these core concepts in depth.

Truth Medicine & Unconditional Love: A Nondual approach to Psychedelic Psychotherapy

Nondual psychedelic psychotherapy starts with recognizing our inherent goodness, then moving through layers needing healing with grace, truth, and self-love. Join David and Dr. Sapiro to demonstrate nondual meditation’s role in the therapeutic process, exploring concepts like loving awareness, original essence, and the entire therapy framework, from preparation to integration. Embracing the nondual approach, we can swiftly experience our unbroken wholeness, guiding our healing journey in psychedelic therapy.

Free Webinar — Psychedelics for Veterans: The Battle for a Better Standard of Care

When it comes to patient populations, veterans are among the most challenging to treat. Many return from service with debilitating conditions, including PTSD, treatment resistant depression, traumatic brain injury and chronic pain.

The costs – both financial and human – of military service are extreme. Recent studies suggest that between 2001 and 2050, the total costs of caring for veterans of the post-9/11 wars will reach between $2.2 and $2.5 trillion. It is estimated that on average, 44 veterans die in the United States every day from suicide.

Can psychedelics promise new hope to veterans suffering in sub-standard models of care? How can psychedelics be used to create a better standard of care for veterans and their families?

Join us in discussion with three North American veterans (Arron Victory, Apex Labs; Jesse Gould, Heroic Hearts; and Justin LaPree, Heroic Path to Light) on the eve of Remembrance Day (Canada) and Veterans Day (U.S.) on topics including:

• How psychedelics are currently being used by veteran populations, both above and underground
• The current standard of care for veterans post-service, the strengths of the current system and where it falls short
• Grassroots community efforts to support veterans and first responders in North America
• How biotech is working to create alternate psychedelic treatment options for veteran populations
• Ongoing and upcoming clinical trials to study the effects of psychedelics on veterans
• How governments are responding to calls for psychedelic access for veterans
• Successes veterans and their families are finding in psychedelic therapies
