Introduction to PSS1 & PSS2
Psychedelic Guide Training, combining PSS1 and PSS2 intensives, is for those who wish to facilitate individual and small group sessions in non-clinical, spiritual, or creative problem solving settings. This course series provides all of the skillsets and logistics training needed to work skillfully and ethically as a Cannabis-Assisted Psychedelic Guide and can be completed in as little as four to six months with credentialing.
PSS 1: Foundations in Mindfulness-Based Psychedelic Therapy®
PSS 1: Foundations in Mindfulness-Based Psychedelic Therapy® is designed to provide you with the foundational skill sets to increase the depth and meaning of transformational psychedelic experiences while keeping the experiences as safe as possible. Unlike other Psychedelic Therapy programs, Medicinal Mindfulness Psychedelic Sitters School is not just theoretical, it is also very experiential in nature, and we focus on gaining direct, first-hand knowledge from the psychedelic sessions themselves.
We focus on Mindfulness Techniques that Psychedelic Therapists and Guides can use to deepen their own healing and transformation process while assisting and staying in full contact with their client for many hours. These internal skill sets are often unacknowledged in other programs, yet are essential in increasing personal and professional sustainability and resilience.
You will learn how to make your own psychedelic cannabis blends, set up your therapy space, use music and prompts to safely hold space as a psychedelic facilitator. The skill sets taught in PSS1 are similar to facilitating Ketamine and N,N-DMT psychedelic experiences.
The intensive nature of the experience allows us to do far more than a clinical Psychedelic Therapy training program. In addition to the demonstrations, experientials and multiple one-on-one practice sessions, the intensive is over four full days of personal psychedelic journeywork equivalent to the most potent Ayahuasca retreat experiences.
You’ll meet other students who are as inspired by psychedelics as much as you are and who are from all over the United States, Canada, Europe, South America, and as far away as as Australia. The community nature of the intensives is one of the most healing interventions we can offer to our community.
