MM Foundation Community, Student & Professional Membership Information
The Medicinal Mindfulness Foundation Board of Directors recently voted to officially become a “Religious Non-Profit” to start a process that would provide additional legal protections to our members. By no means does this mean we require a certain belief or dogma to participate in this community. The MM Mission Statement will be continually evaluated by the community.
We are also reviewing becoming a “professional association” so we can best represent our members to society and have a collective voice and greater influence in our work.
There are three levels of membership in the MM Foundation: Community Member, Student Member, Professional Member.
1. Community Member
Community members are non-voting members that have signed up to participate in any of our community events, many of which require the Psychedelic Safety Questionnaire and the relevant informed consent agreements. This information is kept on file so it only has to be updated once a year.
Community members are also representative of our longterm allies within the psychedelic movement.
Community Membership is free. Annually updated participation agreements are required to maintain membership and attend medicine related events.
2. Student Member
We are primarily a professional training and professional practice organization, so the students and graduates of our program make up our community.
Benefits and other Information
- New PSS students receive first year for free with the purchase of PSS1 training program.
- For all current students – Free Membership for 1 more year as we transition to the Guild. Annual membership due will be required after that.
- Annual renewal of this membership is required to denote active membership in our program for a variety of legal and safety reasons.
- Student Membership is $150/year after the first year. Scholarships apply.
You will have access to:
- Community Resources, Online Classes, and Online Forums based on training level access
- Access to Community Groups
- Voting rights – process being determined now by the Community Councils
- Opportunity to sit for free for any PSS/MM community circle after the completion of PSS1 (Senior Dragons often open space for this as well) – Limited space for in-person, but open for virtual events.
- Membership discount on journey experience
We are asking all current students to update their participation documentations and update their information in our new system. These have all been updated recently so we’re going to ask that you review and sign again so everyone is on the same page. Consent to all agreements in the Student Handbook is required to formally invite you as a student member in 2023.
2023 is the launch of the new level of community organizing. For those of you who have trained with us for a while, you are also invited to apply for the Dragon Training. Information on the Dragon Training is discussed in the next section.
Immediate Request for a Working Team of Volunteers
We have an immediate need for a pool of volunteers who are interested in helping organize the community. No specific requirements besides membership and relevant skills and a good deal of motivation. Please send me a letter of interest and your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Professional Member
Currently, graduates of our program and professional members of our center and training program are invited to become professional members. This membership level requires completion of our Psychedelic Guide Credentialing Program as outlined on our Program Guide and in our Guild Agreement. Professional practice in clinical settings requires completion of our Psychedelic Therapy Credentialing Program.
One of our core ethical requirements to practice professionally as a guide is community accountability and oversight, which is one of the primary functions of the Medicinal Mindfulness Foundation. When other Professional Oversight Associations are up and running, we may align with one of them or allow a variety of ways to maintain the community oversight requirement for professional membership.
Professional Membership is $300/annually. Scholarships apply.
50% Discount for those who join before 2023. Required for Dragon Training.
Professional Online Directory for our graduates is being developed now.
Access to updated professional and legal documents and other guild resources for personal practice.
Professional Opportunities such as becoming a paid guide at our center, or a trainer in our training program become available on a regular basis.
