  • The importance of psychedelic education for the uninitiated
  • How ketamine has a shadow side – as do all psychedelic medicines
  • How psychedelic therapy can help mitigate our suffering by ‘assisting’ us to open to our pain
  • Integration as critical to psychedelic therapy – we all need outside feedback and help anchoring our work with psychedelics
  • Healing in and through the body How psychedelics help us embody our experience of ourselves and our lives
  • Spirituality as a path of “de-scension” – of coming home to the body
  • How our conditioning often cuts us off from our own magic
  • Healing happening in relationship – most importantly in our relationship to ourselves
  • Concerns as the field of psychedelic therapy widens – the need for careful, relational work
