Level 2 - Psychedelic Guide Training
Psychedelic Guide Training is a full 4-day professional training program designed to teach students everything they need to know to begin facilitating individual psychedelic cannabis session in a professional setting. The training builds on skill sets developed from Psychedelic Sitters School and teaches participants how to deepen a clients process safely. This training is a prerequisite to our assistant facilitators and apprenticeship program.
Learn how to facilitate profound psychedelic journey experiences for a friend or client using cannabis sativa and mindfulness based, somatically informed journeywork techniques. The program is experientially based. Participants will each be guided on an intentional cannabis session, and will take turns practicing sitting, guiding and "holding space" for each other. The group will participate in a Conscious Cannabis Circle Saturday night as part of their initiation into guidework.
The lead facilitator will guide 1-2 participants to demonstrate important guide techniques.
