Facilitating Psychedelic Experiences
Learn how to safely and successfully facilitate psychedelic experiences
🍄 Are you interested in becoming a psychedelic facilitator, but don’t know where to start?
🍄 Do you love the idea of hosting sessions, but lack confidence and are unsure what type of support you could offer?
🍄 Do you already have experience, but would like to improve your ability to successfully facilitate experiences, both for yourself and others?
Facilitating Psychedelic Experiences is an online workshop to help you improve your ability to successfully facilitate psychedelic experiences. In this workshop, you’ll explore what it means to facilitate, dive into ideas with others, and consider what type of facilitator you’d like to be.
Explore the topic in a fun and interactive format. You will leave the workshop with a greater understanding of facilitation and more confidence to organize your own sessions.
The workshop is suitable for enthusiastic beginners but will also be of interest to those with experience in the area seeking to connect with like-minded others.
