While pursuing her bachelor’s in Cultural Anthropology at the National University of Colombia, she encountered the perplexing ayahuasca tradition in her home country.

She has conducted fieldwork research on the contemporary uses of the brew in rainforests, capital cities, and digital settings. Her interests include psychedelic research, the promising therapeutic use of these substances, and their current use in Europe and Latin America.

Psychedelic Parenthood: Why Are We Leaving Children and Adolescents Out of the Psychedelic Renaissance?

As the psychedelic movement gains momentum, its impact on individuals extends beyond personal exploration. Thousands of parents and caregivers are now weaving these experiences into their lives, seeking support for challenges like imposter syndrome and maternal guilt. While traditional cultures have long incorporated psychedelics within community life, including pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, the Western psychedelic mainstream still struggles to include families.

This presentation, drawing upon the author’s personal experience raising children in a Brazilian psychedelic context, offers 10 points for reflection on navigating this new frontier. It explores the potential and risks of psychedelic therapy for young people, social and economic considerations for psychedelic families, and the need to decolonize the field to embrace diverse perspectives. By sparking a dialogue about psychedelic parenthood, we can work towards a more inclusive and supportive Psychedelic Renaissance.

Join us for this FREE webinar hosted by Dr. Glauber Loures de Assis, Associate Director of Chacruna Latinoamérica in Brazil.

Dr. Glauber Loures de Assis has a Ph.D. in sociology from the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) and is Research Associate at the Interdisciplinary Group for Psychoactive Studies (NEIP) in Brazil. His main interests include the ayahuasca religions, new religious movements, the internationalization of the Brazilian religions, drug use in contemporary society, and psychedelic parenthood. He is the author of numerous articles and book chapters, and the co-editor of the book Women and Psychedelics: Uncovering Invisible Voices (Synergetic Press/Chacruna Institute, in press). Glauber is also an ayahuasca practitioner with 15 years of experience. He has built this practice in dialogue with his local Brazilian ayahuasca community and with the blessings of Indigenous elders and activists in Brazil. He is also the leader of Jornadas de Kura, a plant medicine center in Brazil that promotes a bridge between the ceremonial use of sacred plants and psychedelic science. He is father to 3 children and lives with his wife Jacqueline Rodrigues in Santa Luzia, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

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.

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.

The Neuroscience of Psychedelics, False Memories, and Memory Reconsolidation

Psychedelics are known for their profound effects on how we experience and think about the world. In the context of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, a lot of attention is given to the ability of psychedelics to help us remember and process memories from our past.

It’s common for individuals to report vivid reliving’s of past experiences, and for that to be a source of personal insight and healing. But can we always trust the memories we seem to remember? Are our insights always accurate or ‘correct’? And how are psychedelics impacting the brain to influence the way memories are retrieved and processed?

In this webinar, three psychedelic neuroscientists (Manoj Doss PhD, Melanie Pincus PhD, and Manesh Girn PhD) will draw on the latest findings from psychedelic research to discuss these critical questions.

Transpersonal Breathwork Retreat: Portugal

Psychedelics Today and Prasada have joined forces to offer a unique and transformative retreat experience. Our upcoming Portugal retreat is dedicated to the exploration of breathwork and the captivating world of non-psychedelic altered states of consciousness.

A Journey Beyond Psychedelics

While we deeply value the insights that psychedelics can bring, we also recognize that there are countless paths to expanded consciousness. In this retreat, we will be delving into the transformative potential of breathwork and various non-psychedelic practices. These modalities have been used for centuries to access altered states, promote healing, and enhance self-awareness.

This retreat is thoughtfully designed for Psychedelics Today Vital students, as well as anyone intrigued by breathwork and altered states. Whether you are new to these techniques or have prior experience, this experience is open to all.

Transpersonal Breathwork

Transpersonal Breathwork is most often experienced in safe and supportive group settings led by trained facilitators. This process evokes supportive feelings of connection and community-building that can facilitate and amplify self-discovery and personal development. 

The core components of Transpersonal Breathwork are based on Stanislav Grof MD’s holotropic theory and his work with his late wife, Christina. The experience includes group process, intensified breathing, evocative music, bodywork (when desired), and expressive drawing. The felt sense of this practice can parallel reports emerging from mystical and shamanic traditions, as well as experiential philosophy.

This experience often enhances the sitter to a frame of consciousness beyond what is typically accessible during ordinary, normative states. Through this intensification, individuals can experience shifts in how they understand and tend to their inner life, allowing for increased opportunities to direct change in one’s respective world. These shifts can range from deepening personal insight to posttraumatic catharsis and are most readily occasioned by a self-directed process of affirming all qualities of experience as expressions of an Inner Healing Intelligence unique to each person.

Here are some additional frequently asked questions (FAQ) about Transpersonal Breathwork.

Our Wholebeing Framework

Every day there are opportunities to practice and solidify whole-being practices to strengthen your body, mind, and spirit. We will explore a Wholebeing Framework by incorporating CrossFit, yoga, intuitive movement, creativity, time in nature, and breathwork. 

Our Wholebeing Guides are highly trained, seasoned professionals in their disciplines and weave all aspects of these practices into their lives. There are many access points to building a lifetime of healthy habits; the team will meet you where you are to support and guide you toward your goals.

Our Setting

Monte Orada is an authentic Portuguese countryside home surrounded by nature with lots of sunlight and greenery. Orada offers different accommodation types, from private suites and bungalows to tepees and cozy dorm rooms. The buildings and retreat facilities were reconstructed using traditional and organic materials (adobe), giving this beautiful property not only an authentic Portuguese feel but also providing a healthy and comfortable environment in all weather.

There are many places to explore and relax into the beauty of this land while on retreat such as the Biopool, a natural and live, chemical-free system, where the water is purified through biological filters and plants rooted hydroponically in the system. You can also enjoy a float on the irrigation canal that carries water from St. Clara Dam to the SW coast of the country and provides an abundance of fresh water to Orada. Our group will have exclusive use of Orada to support the experience of finding peace and creating connections with your fellow sojourners.

Nourishing, Fresh Meals

Conscious nourishment is an integral part of the philosophy embedded in Orada, and the food prepared in Orada’s kitchen aims to connect people to their environment.

With thought to the natural cycles of the systems that support us, vegan menus are designed to incorporate seasonal variation with a preference for locally grown produce. Orada aims to provide a nutritionally balanced menu with plenty of variety that caters to those with food sensitivities.

Webinar – Unraveling the Top 3 Psychedelic Neuroscience Myths

Join us for a thought-provoking webinar on “Unraveling the Top 3 Psychedelic Neuroscience Myths.” In this hour-long session, Melanie Pincus Ph.D. and Manesh Girn Ph.D.(c) will delve into the science of psychedelic brain effects and challenge some of the most common misconceptions surrounding them. 

Did you know that the default mode network is just one of several networks that are important to psychedelic brain effects, and may not be the most critical? Or that psychedelics, ketamine, and MDMA tend to have reputations for specific effects, but they are not as different in the brain as we assume? 

We also highlight how the research on neuroplasticity and psychedelics has almost exclusively been done in rodents and not humans, how neuroplasticity and neurogenesis differ, and how increased neuroplasticity doesn’t always necessarily lead to positive changes.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to expand your knowledge and challenge your assumptions on how psychedelics affect the brain. This webinar will give you a taste of some of the topics we will be covering in our upcoming 8-week course ‘Psychedelic Neuroscience Demystified: How Psychedelics Alter Consciousness and Produce Therapeutic Effects.’ Register now to unravel the mysteries of psychedelic neuroscience!

Webinar – A Somatic Perspective on Sex & Psychedelics: Focusing on Consent and Repressed Sexual Trauma Memories

The topic of sexual wellness is often glossed over in general therapeutics and psychedelic therapy spaces. The boundary-dissolving characteristics of the psychedelic experience calls for a more in-depth conversation about how healthcare providers hold our own relationship with sexuality and the body. This webinar presentation is intended to support harm reduction, increase healthcare providers’ somatic self-awareness, and to open up the conversation on the intersection of psychedelics and sexuality.

Somatic skill development is vital to cultivating a safer and more ethical healing space. Join us to learn more about the value of the mind-body connection as an integrative force within psychedelic containers. Whether or not you intend to bring the elements of sexuality into your practice, the prevalence of sexual trauma in our population is undeniable. Consciously cultivating an embodied capacity to meet the truth of Eros in the human experience is essential for being a present and responsive practitioner.

The Presenters: Annie Boheler and Lorina Manzanita work as somatic intimacy coaches and Somatic Experiencing© Practitioners. They offer complementary perspectives on sex-positive, relational therapeutics founded on years of integral psychedelic work.

Topics to be explored:

  • Defining and understanding what is sexual contact

  • Outline of an embodiment practice to support re-establishment of authentic boundaries
  • A presentation of the phenomenon of repressed sexual trauma memories arising in psychedelic healing spaces
  • Positions and approaches to greet with caution and practices and principles to cultivate generously when holding questions of repressed sexual trauma memories

What to expect:

  • Demo for experiential awareness
  • Time for Q&A
  • NOTE: This webinar is limited to 30 participants. Please reserve your spot by registering!

Convergence: Canceled

It is with heavy hearts that we share some important news with our community: after careful consideration and factors outside Psychedelics Today’s control, we’ve made the challenging decision to cancel Convergence, originally scheduled from March 30 to April 2 in Los Angeles. 

This decision comes following troubling operating issues with the venue selected for Convergence. Rather than re-imagining the event at a new venue and potentially depriving our guests of the experience they’d come to expect, we’ve decided the best way to honor our community is to step back until we are able to host a gathering in a space that aligns with our original vision.

All stakeholders, ticket holders, and supporters have been contacted directly with more information via email. If that’s you, kindly check your inbox. Should you have any more questions, please reach out to us via DM or at info@psychedelicstoday.com.

But it’s not all bad news. We’re pleased to announce we’re working with speakers and panelists to host their Convergence talks & panels on the Psychedelics Today media platform and podcast! This content will be free for all to enjoy, so stay tuned for all the details as they’re announced.

We are humbled and grateful for the support of our psychedelic community, and appreciate all those who helped us in our work to bring Convergence to life. We have plans for more events and surprises in store in 2023/2024, so stay tuned – we hope you’ll join us there ✨

Webinar – Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy (IHRP) Rationale, Theory and Technique

Andrew Tatarsky’s Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy (IHRP) provides a
framework for effective therapy with people along the entire spectrum of risky
and addictive behavior including the use of psychedelics in recreational,
ceremonial and therapeutic contexts. The harm reduction shift starts where
people are, supports people in creating their optimal relationships to substances
and emphasizes empowerment and collaboration between the provider and
consumer. IHRP brings a harm reduction orientation to psychotherapy,
substance use treatment and psychedelic-assisted therapy.

IHRP techniques are uniquely tailored to each person. A central focus on the
therapeutic alliance and relationship creates a context in which to clarify the
meanings and functions of problematic behavior, enhance self-regulation and
support maximizing benefit and minimizing risk. IHRP addresses related
personal, relational and lifestyle issues concurrently with problematic behavior.

This introduction to IHRP will cover the clinical rationale, theoretical foundation,
basic definitions of harm reduction and an overview of IHRP and it’s Seven
Therapeutic Tasks. Special attention will be given to the relationship between
trauma, dissociation and problems with self regulation and addiction.

The class will combine lecture, discussion and clinical illustrations. Particpants
are encouraged to bring their most challenging case vignettes for discussion.

You will learn:

-The challenging realities of people who struggle with problematic drug use

-The limitations of traditional abstinence-only treatment

-The role society plays in the shaping of how we understand substance use and how treatment has developed

-The multiple meanings process model of addiction underlying IHRP

-The core harm reduction principles

 -An overview of IHRP’s Seven Therapeutic Tasks

 -Application to psychedelic preparation and integration

Webinar – Retreat or Clinic: Which Approach is Right for You?

With the growing number of clinical studies showing positive results for depression, anxiety and PTSD, many people are looking forward to sitting with psilocybin for its healing benefits. The question comes up a lot, would it be more beneficial to try psilocybin on a retreat or in a clinical setting.

Join Neil Markey and Dr. Andrea Pennington of Beckley Retreats as they weigh the pros and cons of each.

Insuring Psychedelics: The Missing Link

Insurance for the nascent psychedelics industry is a four-letter word. And where available, while business insurance is often purchased as part of licensing obligations, is it often treated as an oversight and later forgotten.

This webinar shares insider tips and tricks for making insurance a profit center. We will discuss the current state of the market for insuring psychedelic businesses, including types of insurance policies, “red flag” policy terms, best practices for applications, and more.

Presented by: Jodi Green, Counsel, Feldman Legal Advisors

She also provides fractional general counsel and risk management services to growth-stage entities.

Webinar: Psychedelic Integration and Depth Relational Process

Integration as a word is being applied to a wide range of practices and means different things in different settings. How can we understand the process of integration from a Depth Relational Process perspective which highlights depth perspectives – like the Jungian or attachment lens -, relational unfolding and depth of processing? And how can we match integration set with integration setting from a theoretically pluralistic perspective to meet the needs of people post experience at an appropriate and adequate level?

Depth Relational Process is a model we have co-developed with Dr. Tim Read in support of working with the deep psyche as well as expanded states. In this talk we will consider the main elements of working in this way alongside some clinical material to bring some of these ideas into the realm of practice.

Maria Papaspyrou is a senior accredited psychotherapist, working in private practice in Brighton, UK.

Webinar – Death, Dying, and Psychedelics

Psychedelics open us to the prospect of death as part of our common humanity and consciousness. Research from NYU, Johns Hopkins and UCLA have consistently shown that psilocybin, not just reduced the anxiety and depression associated with the fear of dying in cancer patients, but it also brought feelings of unity and peace and acceptance to death and dying.

This panel will bring together the Founder of the first-of-its-kind end-of-life psilocybin retreat and training, the End-of-Life Doula who led the programs’ development, a psychedelic trained psychotherapist with 30 years’ experience as a hospice social worker and cancer survivor who participated in an MDMA study for individuals with life-threatening illnesses, and a Psychedelics Today colleague who was transformed through psychedelics after the death of her father.

Join them in an engaging panel discussion to talk about the death and dying process, the role of an End-of-Life Doula in this process, how and why psychedelics are powerful sources for healing in those with terminal diagnoses, and how you can begin to shift your thinking about death and dying. They each will share their personal stories with psychedelics and death which are moving testimonials to the potency of psychedelics for this, the most important, part of one’s life journey.

Please note that an attendee report (names, email addresses) is shared with the partner.

Panelists:

Christina Ingenito – LCSW, Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapist, Clinical Director at Diaspora Psychedelic Society

Monica Miller – Event Manager at Psychedelics Today

Catherine Durkin Robinson – Death Doula and Educator at Anitya Doula Services

Webinar – The Dark Side of Psychedelic Therapies

Join us for a presentation with Cathy Harris, LCSW, who will be sharing about her lived experience in a cult, which ultimately led her toward helping others find self-compassion and joy in life.

After her experience, Cathy has been learning and working over the last 25 years to facilitate healing in many settings: military and civilian substance abuse treatment (adults and teens), in-home therapy, crisis center, mobile crisis, inpatient trauma treatment, outpatient group treatment and private practice.

Her work is rooted in Trauma-Informed thinking and she finds fulfillment in sharing this perspective with a variety of professionals. She currently works with veterans, active duty and ex-cult members via private practice.

Cathy’s presentation will cover:

• Defining and understanding what a cult is, using Lifton’s 8 Critera.
• The physical, mental, and emotional effects of cults and cult behavior.
• Why psychedelic therapy/work is vulnerable to cults and cult behavior.
• The role of Vicarious Trauma in development and healing.

Free Webinar – Nue Life: Empowering Patients with At-Home Ketamine Therapy

Join us for an open dialogue with several game-changers from Nue Life who will discuss their treatment, findings, and a call for mainstream adoption of this method of care.

Many in the United States are benefitting from ketamine treatment, reporting that major symptoms of depression are reduced after just a few doses in a clinical setting. This medicine, when used with intention and care, can bring a new level of mental wellness to one’s life.

However, psychedelics like ketamine have a long history of stigma, resulting in reluctance from prescribers to adopt this type of treatment. The lack of ketamine prescribers presents a bottleneck to the mainstreaming of psychedelic treatment within the mental health infrastructure.

NueLife—a team of dedicated physicians, expert technologists, and compassionate clinicians—delivers responsive, personalized ketamine therapy in the comfort of their clients’ homes. Research shows that of their 650 patients with treatment-resistant depression and anxiety, approximately 2/3rds saw over a 50% reduction in symptoms after just six ketamine sessions.

Panelists:

Lauren Marchefka – Board-certified family nurse practitioner and member of the senior medical team at Nue Life.

Lynn-Marie Morski – President of the Psychedelic Medicine Association, host of the Psychedelic Medicine Podcast, and Medical Director for Nue Life Health.

Ben Medrano – Medical Director of Nue Life Medical Group. Additionally, Ben works in patient care as Medical Director of Field Trip NYC and DC clinics while providing direct care within his private practice.

Host:

David Drapkin – The Director of Operations and Strategic Growth at Psychedelics Today. Additionally, he is a licensed clinical social worker and seasoned mental health and addiction practitioner.

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

Free Webinar — Traditional and Modern Perspectives on Healing

Join us for “Traditional and Modern Perspectives on Healing,” part two of a two-part series in collaboration with the Indigenous Medicine Conservation Fund (IMC Fund). The IMC Fund was co-created for the sovereign protection and regeneration of the medicines, ecologies & traditional knowledge Indigenous communities have honored for thousands of years.

In this webinar, we will be looking at the importance of respecting traditional Indigenous cultures and practices. This panel brings together professionals with both traditional and modern training to discuss these medicines and how they are being worked with at this time by different groups and in different demographics, and to learn together in an exchange between equals. Building on part one of the series, panelists will discuss the differences between appreciation and appropriation, and share their experience in the field and on the ground.

Please note that registrations (names, email addresses) are shared with the webinar collaborator.

Indigenous Medicine: Appreciation vs. Appropriation

Join us for “Appreciation vs. Appropriation,” part one of a two-part webinar series in collaboration with the Indigenous Medicine Conservation Fund (IMC Fund). The IMC Fund was co-created for the sovereign protection and regeneration of the medicines, ecologies & traditional knowledge Indigenous communities have honored for thousands of years.

In this webinar series, we will be discussing the importance of respecting traditional Indigenous cultures and practices. As the psychedelic renaissance forges on, it is important to emphasize conserving and supporting traditional knowledge and we are urging having these conversations. While the IMC Fund focuses on biocultures that have ancestral practices with plants such as ayahuasca, iboga and peyote, we know that all indigenous cultures have rich traditions that deserve respect, and that land and territory issues at the community level are linked to mental health and climate change outcomes globally.

How do we ensure the original holders of these sacred medicines are respected and uplifted in this search for our collective healing? Together we can hold a respectful and constructive dialogue and exchange that isn’t extractive, and instead appreciates rather than appropriates an exchange between equals.

This webinar is FREE to attend, however, we highly recommend making a contribution via Grow Medicine (https://growmedicine.com/), a project and donation platform of the IMC Fund.

Speakers:

Sutton King, MPH – Co Director of the Urban Indigenous Collective
Anahí Ochoa – Director of the Intercultural Yaqui Medicine Clinic
Mona Polacca – Leader in the Native American revitalization movement
Miriam Volat, MS – Co-Director of the Riverstyx Foundation
