About this event

Are you new to the psychedelic experience or want to level up your own process in entering and leaving altered states in a good way? Join us for our free monthly Psychedelics 101 workshops where you will get more information on our integration philosophy and get to ask any questions you may have on psychedelics, harm reduction, preparation, or integration.

People of all experience levels and any questions you may have are welcomed. If you know someone about to enter a psychedelic experience for the first time, this offering may be a particularly useful resource for them.

  • Better understand the basics of psychedelic preparation and integration.
  • Learn ways to decide which medicine may be helpful to your path.
  • Increase your ability to vet a psychedelic facilitator or retreat.
  • Learn new modalities and practices to help you integrate your experience.
  • Enter your psychedelic experience in a safer and more empowered way.
