In this episode, Natasja Pelgrom and Beth Weinstein speak about…

  • Natasja’s attraction to energy work, shamanism, meditation, and psychedelics at a young age
  • How “Do no harm” should be a central tenet of all psychedelic facilitation work
  • The huge responsibility you have as a facilitator to hold sacred the trust you are offered by the people you serve
  • Serious issues that can arise when people wanting to work with psychedelics don’t report contraindications and how this can negatively impact them, their facilitator, and the whole psychedelic ecosystem
  • The growing problem of people doing short facilitator trainings and immediately jumping into facilitation long before they have the knowledge and experience to do so
  • The energetic differences between male and female facilitation styles
  • “Cleaning” the system to help prepare people for a bufo experience so their innate healing capacity can be more easily activated
  • How the cleaner you are, the more you trust, and the more you trust, the more deeply you can surrender
  • Using a smaller “integration dose” after the main dose/s to empower and bring resilience to the psyche and nervous system
  • How giving super high doses of medicine can be a sign that a facilitator feels they are “not enough”, which is picked up energetically by the client/s
  • The need for facilitators to be able to understand their own programming and hold space without their own issues interfering
