Psychedelic Mystery School™

We are drawn to the mystery of these medicines as much as the healing. We view them as sacraments to honor our ancestors and bow to them for spiritual guidance and support. We seek direct contact with that beautiful space beyond this space. We yearn for even brief moments of sacred communion with the more than human world. We have felt the spirits of the forest and mountains; we have dived deep into the realm of the collective consciousness and yearn to comprehend the magnificence of all that is.

It’s not just faith that drives our belief but also direct experience. We have communed with guides and allies; we have experienced the archetypes first hand and have felt the power of their existence. They have spoken to us. We have become one with the light and sunk into the void beyond it. Time is a concept that has more meaning to us than the relentless ticking of a clock. It is eternal in the present moment.

How do we engage this space safely? Sustainably? With reverence and gratitude? How do we even find the words to describe these ineffable states? What exactly is “energy” and how do I skillfully and confidently engage it? What does it mean to look beyond the edges of the world? Is magic real? Where do I belong in this greater community of being?

These are the questions explored in Psychedelic Mystery School.

You are invited to join us on an expedition into the mysterious space beyond the visible and explore the edges yourself; to see and feel what is out there. There is no dogma here, just curiosity.

We will work with the tools that go beyond the “psychotherapeutic”; tools of divination and prayer, tools of magic and alchemy. Spirits, elements and the “more real than real”.

We honor the dimensions of psychedelic practice that are so neglected and minimized by the quest for psychedelics to be accepted into the mainstream world. We invite the mainstream mind into our world instead. We want others to experience the mystery that we live in. We invite our clients into this space, and bear witness to the sacred awakening of those in our care. We invite them into the greater mystery. We are the psychopomps, the guides, the alchemists, the wild ones.

Primary Learning Objectives: To explore advanced spiritual practices associated with psychedelic medicine work and learn advanced energy practices.

Structure: This is a six day in person intensive with five psychedelic ceremonies. Presentations and integration conversations will be each morning and we will step into different psychedelic experiences each afternoon or evening. We will practice the

standard cannabis ceremony protocols students are familiar with, but we will add more active protocols that include art and divination, energy healing modalities, ceremony and prayer, as well as a new cannabis ceremony that is a much longer nighttime journey using edible cannabis blends as the sacrament.
