PSS1 is the most important class in our program. This lecture series is open to the public and is required for those attending our intensive training retreats. If purchased separately, the cost is deducted from your training tuition. It provides foundational skillsets central to our program, supervised facilitation experiences, and a significant amount of psychedelic therapy logistics. Psychedelic therapy is not the same as psychotherapy. Although being a psychotherapist is a great foundational skillset for this work, it doesn’t prepare students to become psychedelic therapists any more than other mindfulness or spiritual practices do, and in some cases it can even get in the way of deeper experiences that are outside the realm of psychotherapy.
