Psilocybin Mushroom Facilitator Training

Psilocybin Mushroom Facilitator Training for Clinical and Non-clinical Practitioners

Elemental's 150-hour mushroom journey facilitator program combines online and experiential opportunities to support your exploration of education, experience, and ethics for embodied practice as a mushroom journey guide.

Elemental's Mushroom Journey Facilitator Program involves:

  • 100 hours of online synchronous and asynchronous curriculum, study groups, and live calls

  • 50 hours of in-person education for clinical and non-clinical tracks, including:

  • 4-day in-person Elementals of the Psilocybin Mushroom Journey for clinical and non-clinical tracks

  • 3-day in-person Deepening your Psilocybin Mushroom Practice for clinical and non-clinical tracks

  • Single night group ceremonies for supervised practice opportunities

  • Ongoing virtual consultation groups 

How does Elemental's Mushroom Journey Facilitator Program differ between clinical and non-clinical practitioner tracks?

Non-clinical practitioners include individuals from a variety of backgrounds in the healing arts including yoga instructors, life coaches, massage therapists, meditation teachers, doulas, energy workers, reiki practitioners, CNA’s, EMT’s, as well as individuals from other backgrounds seeking to expand their lives into new terrain.

Elemental's non-clinical track in mushroom journey facilitation includes learning objectives important to practitioners from all backgrounds, such as:

  • Uncovering essential sitting skills

  • Perfecting the components of set and setting to support a safe and ethical psychedelic journey

  • Familiarizing yourself with screening protocols for non-licensed practitioners so that you may know when to refer out to other practitioners

  • Ethically staying within your role as a sitter or space holder for psilocybin journeys

  • Understanding and internalizing the ethics of psychedelic care, risks, and avoiding harm

  • Uncovering the importance of consultation and collaboration

  • Staying updated with the current legal landscape in Colorado for non-licensed practitioners in the allied health or healing arts.
