Theory and Skills for Psychedelic Guides
Join Adele Lafrance for an overview of theory and skills to support psychedelic guides, including those informed primarily by 1. a non-directive approach, 2. an inner-directed approach and 3. an approach guided by therapeutic theories and interventions. Relevant emotion-focused theory and interventions will be presented, including working with resistance. Clinicians and non-clinicians are welcome.

Family Matters in Psychedelic Medicine
While significant attention has been paid to the intersection of mind-body-spirit in the context of medicine work, the impact of medicine work on relationships throughout the healing process has received insufficient attention. This workshop will introduce the ethical, brain-based and psychological rationales for attention paid to family matters in psychedelic medicine. Tools and techniques to maximize positive outcomes and minimize distress within the system will also be shared. Clinicians and non-clinicians are welcome.

Preparation and Integration for your Psiloycbin Journey
Learn the essential knowledge and skills for your self-guided mushroom journey. Explore what matters in terms of mindset, your own sense of readiness to build a relationship with psilocybin, the physical and energetic space for your journey, and useful tips to meet the mushroom with openness. We will also offer simple ways to think about integration and how you might engage that process in order to maximize the potential of your self-guided work with mushrooms to make positive impacts in your life.
Proceeds from this workshop are shared with The Trevor Project.

Micro Dosing Education and Access
Personal use of mushrooms is now legal in Colorado. Microdosing is a easy and low-risk way for people to take their first steps. Microdosing is taking 1/10th or 1/20th of a typical dose of mushrooms. Some research dismisses microdosing as a placebo effect. Yet many users report a range of benefits—from reduction in anxiety to better focus to a connection to nature. Who can benefit? Who should steer clear? We'll give folks competency with microdosing, give resources about integration, and we'll provide resources to actually get the mushrooms and make the microdoses. We believe humans are tribal. Community and nature are our birthright.
