PSYCHEDELIC MEDICINES MAY BE THE MOST EFFECTIVE INTERVENTIONS FOR TREATING MENTAL HEALTH AND SUPPORTING WELL-BEING

This immersive professional training will focus on cultivating in our participants the skills necessary to work with people in altered states of consciousness. While providing specialized education around a variety of plants and compounds to prepare for the time when they become legal options, we will focus on ketamine in practice during our weekends together.

We believe that learning how to safely and effectively harness the power of these tools in a way that feels authentic to your personal style of practice is critical for successful outcomes.

The Inbodied training is unique in its commitment to share with its participants a variety of techniques and perspectives by clinicians that use them.

Our training is also unique in its focus on integration. Our schedule is designed to give each participant the necessary space to honor their own experiential sessions, and to practice the skill of being a psychedelic therapist. We are shifting out of the traditional model of speed and hyper-productivity in favor of sustained, unhurried learning with lasting impact.
