Welcome Brave Traveler
A message from our founders
Psychedelic Therapy is already legal! You don’t even have to leave the country to facilitate profound therapeutic experiences with legal and incredibly potent psychedelic plant medicines, such as cannabis and psilocybin, as well as the deeply evocative psychedelic ketamine . You can become a credentialed psychedelic therapist now, in full compliance with the law. Our team has been training licensed therapists and psychedelic guides in best practices since 2012.
The Center for Medicinal Mindfulness, one of the first legal psychedelic therapy centers in North America, represents a resilient community working together in a time of global crisis and transformation to help each other heal. The world needs us to show up right now… together.
We invite you to join us on this sacred expedition of healing and discovery.
