About The Event
Psychedelic Professionals Meetup Groups are happening! Let's keep Colorado on the leading edge of psychedelic medicine work by coming together in community to learn, share, and grow. Each Psychedelic Professionals Meetup Group starts with an informative topic relevant to research, practice, policy, or activism around psychedelic medicines, followed by open discussion and an opportunity to connect with like-minded others.
We are excited to welcome Dr. Dana Lerman, co-founder of Skylight Psychedelics, to the first Denver meetup of 2023! Dr. Lerman will share with us the "Journey of a Wounded Healer." Dr. Dana Lerman received her M.D. at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, in New York. She completed Internal Medicine residency at The Mount Sinai Hospital and fellowship in Infectious Disease at The Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. Lerman is board certified in Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease. She has worked as an infectious disease consultant all over the United States for over ten years. Dr. Lerman was the founder of The COVID Consultants, a national COVID-19 consulting and testing firm. During the pandemic she identified herself as a wounded healer and began her own mental wellness journey which led her to an ayahuasca retreat in Costa Rica. Since this time Dr. Lerman’s passions have shifted focus and she has since received training and certification in Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy from the Integrative Psychiatry Institute (IPI) in Boulder, Colorado. Dr. Lerman is in MAPS training via IPI. She has received further training in trauma via PESI, Internal Family Systems via the IFS Institute, and Ecotherapy with the Earth Body Institute. Dr. Lerman currently has her own ketamine practice, Open Mind Space, PLLC, in the foothills of Evergreen, CO. She volunteers with Zendo Project trip sitting at Burning Man. Her prior personal history of psychedelic use, including work with ketamine, psilocybin, LSD, 5-MeO-DMT, Ayahuasca and DMT and other purgatives such as Kambo, affords her the unique ability to know first hand what clients may be experiencing.
