About the event

An intimate psychedelic group facilitator training aimed at supporting psychedelically trained clinicians and licensed practitioners in developing their group offerings. This interactive training offers education, dialogue, and experientials around how to ethically, skillfully and technically create and run psychedelic groups.

In this immersive training, you will learn:

  • the unique benefits of offering psychedelic experiences in a group setting
  • the differences between several group models
  • how to screen and prepare participants for groups
  • how to create a container that facilitates connection and increased safety
  • best practices for documentation and paperwork such as informed consent, and mental health evals
  • facilitation skills to deepen the group experience and enhance connection among participants
  • how to hold space and ethically use ritual and ceremony that is not culturally appropriative
  • the most common challenges facilitators encounter and ways to address them

Plus, two experiential opportunities to practice medicine work in different group formats!

Registration fee is $2,000, which includes all training components and experientials. Participants will receive a certificate of professional development hours completed that can be used toward LPC, LCSW, and other professional licenses (e.g., MFT) renewal for clinical practitioners in Colorado. Participants must book and pay for separately their own lodging at Sunrise Ranch. A link will be provided after you are registered to book lodging directly through Sunrise Ranch. Lodging prices range from $400 to $900, inclusive of all 4 nights plus 3 meals per day. Refunds are available up to 30 days prior to the start of training.

Dylan Rivard, LPC

Dylan Rivard, MA, LPC (he/him/his) was born in the forests of Indiana, and grew up playing in creeks, catching fireflies, and wondering whether or not dragons really did live in the leaves of the trees in his backyard. Raised in a spiritually eclectic household, Dylan developed a lifelong fascination with prayer, ritual, healing, and our connection to the divine. This led him to pursue work in wilderness survival, psychology, and outdoor rec, culminating in a MA in Transpersonal Psychotherapy with a Wilderness Therapy focus form Naropa University. Since graduating, he has continued to deepen his studies in mindfulness and somatic based therapies, group ritual work, and esotericism. With over 10 years of experience in mental health, he now runs his own private practice where he serves clients working through trauma, grief, and spiritual growth. He lives in the foothills of Golden, CO, where he is grateful to share the land with his husband, their animals, and myriad turkeys, deer, and ponderosa pines.
