About the event
This introductory workshop is designed to support practitioners from a variety of backgrounds in learning the elementals of supporting safe and ethical psilocybin mushroom journeys for others. In this workshop, you will learn:
- components of set and setting to support a safe and ethical psychedelic journey
- the ethics of psychedelic care, risks, and avoiding harm
- screening questions for non-licensed practitioners so that you may know when to refer out to other practitioners and how to ethically stay within your role as a sitter or space holder for psychedelic journeys, and
- the current and emerging legal landscape in Colorado for non-clinical practitioners who want to pursue a facilitators license.
The workshop is open to practitioners from all varieties of backgrounds, including yoga instructors, life coaches, massage therapists, meditation teachers, doulas, energy workers, reiki practitioners, CNA’s, EMT’s, and both early and late career practitioners. It's also a great segue into our forthcoming Psilocybin Mushroom Journey Facilitator Training for non-clinical practitioners. And, as a participant in the one-day Elementals of Mushrooms workshop, $100 of your registration fee can be applied toward any multi-day Immersive training!
This workshop will be delivered in-person in Denver, CO, at the Lowry Conference Center near the Community College of Aurora. We will have a break for lunch. You can bring your own lunch, or buy lunch at a nearby restaurant. There is plenty of free parking and wifi available. We can't wait to see you there!
