With the promising studies of psychedelics in mental health and with the release of Michael Pollan’s book, How to Change Your Mind, there has been a resurgence of interest in psychedelics. Those who never experienced them, are curious and those who have might feel less on the fringe with this renaissance.
Most psychedelics are not yet legal, however, that hasn’t ever stopped people and will hopefully be moot as we move toward legalization in the future.
So, if it is happening anyway…why not make sure you are safe and get the most out of the experience?
Jennifer Allen will share with us what she has learned through her certification in psychedelic assisted therapy at California Institute of Integral Studies, about the importance of set, setting and integration. She’ll weave her experiences with earth-based traditions, Shamanism, and art therapy into how to: prepare, be in “right relationship” with the psychedelic sacrament, journey, and integrate the experience after.
Jennifer is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Art Therapist and has been in private practice for almost 20 years. She has been practicing earth-based traditions for 18 years and Shamanism for 7.
As an art therapist, she has taught art process and grief workshops at Esalen and various locations. She is the author of Bone Knowing: A True Story of Coming to Life in the Face of Impending Loss. Currently, she offers dream medicine workshops and is training in Holotropic Breathwork.
Jennifer will be offering integration groups using art process and intends to participate in Expanded Access clinics. For more info:https://psychedelic.support/network/jennifer-allen-ms-lmft-atr-bc/
