Psychedelic Specialties

Through Psychedelic Guide Training, students learn how to work with psychedelic cannabis and breathwork modalities in non-clinical settings, and gain the foundational skills in Mindfulness-Based Psychedelic Therapy to begin working in clinical settings and with additional medicines. These are the Psychedelic Specialities.

Psychedelic Sitters School currently offers the following four Psychedelic Specialties:

Each specialty program continues the conversation of Psychedelic Guide Training into a specific medicine modality and is comprised of webinars, 3 weekly classes and a 5 day intensive training retreat. Students gain ongoing supervision through an advanced credentialing program.
