Welcome, Brave Traveler

A message from Daniel McQueen, creator of Psychedelic Sitters School and author of “Psychedelic Cannabis: Breaking the Gate”

Daniel McQueen | Psychedelic Sitters School | Boulder, CO

You don’t have to wait for MDMA and psilocybin to be legalized to become a psychedelic therapist. You don’t even have to leave the country to facilitate experiences with a legal, and incredibly potent psychedelic plant medicine. You can become a psychedelic therapist now, fully in compliance with certain state’s laws.

I attended Naropa University and earned my Masters Degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology with the utmost intention of becoming an ethical underground psychedelic therapist. When cannabis became legal in Colorado, everything changed. As I began to explore the significance of using cannabis as a psychedelic for therapeutic purposes, I realized quickly the potential of this plant.

Since then I have devoted a good amount of energy not just to psychedelics, but also to this humble plant ally. I dropped all of my previous plans and became a full-time, professional, psychedelic therapist using this sacred plant ally.

As other medicines become available for use, by training with our program, you’ll have already developed the experience and skill necessary to successfully step into other treatment modalities safely and ethically.

Since cannabis consumption became legal in 2014, I have had the privilege of working openly and legally, full-time as a psychedelic therapist. I can honestly say that I have one of the most meaningful jobs I’ve ever had. In this time, I have discovered one of the most important healing interventions we have available to us: Community. We no longer have to practice in isolation. We can come together to share who we are and our gifts, without the fears and traumas caused by prohibition. This is what Psychedelic Sitters School really is all about.

As corona virus cases are currently rising across the United States, there is a lot of uncertainty and fear. Our work is needed now more than ever and our team is committed to training a new generation of psychedelic therapists who are ready to help heal and transform our communities and the world. We’ve developed a new training protocol that is more resilient and flexible for the duration of this unprecedented period.

Most importantly, we represent a resilient community in a time of global crisis and transformation working together to help each other and our communities heal. The world needs us to show up right now… together.

I hope you can join us on this sacred expedition of healing and discovery.

Safe Travels,
Daniel McQueen
