Our guest

Sadaf Lotfalian, PhD

Sadaf is a licensed clinical psychologist, practicing psychotherapist, educator, facilitator, and social innovator. Her passions lie at the insersections of science and sacred, psychedelics and wellness, and in helping create safer spaces for transformation.

"My community has been a significant source of growth and nourishment for me. I am the constellation of healers, educators, mentors, activists, artists, and leaders, who have helped me internalize the value of support, reliability, transparency, collaboration, and empowerment. These principles inform my vision of holding a space to feel heard and nurtured, lean into discomfort, and soften into healing.

My daily personal journey includes the committed practice of mindfulness and meditation—expanding the space within for the cultivation of present-moment, focused, compassionate, and responsible living. During my morning meditations, I often reflect on how I am feeling about my day and I end the practice grateful for the presence of a compassionate, listening heart.

I believe that with adversity there remains space for healthy expression, healing, and growth. Our ability to embrace this space is influenced by a complex, interconnected system. With a compassionate heart, my daily commitment is to show up for myself and the world, holding brave spaces that inspire motivation for our inner and collective well-being."
