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. 

For our June meetup (scheduled for Tuesday, May 30th,....but it's our June meetup!)  in Denver, we are excited to welcome Lucia Cordeiro Drever, PhD to explore with us "Intentional psychedelic use and erotic freedom." How can the intentional use of psychedelics help us feel more erotically free? Based on her PhD research, Lucia will describe her findings and explore how people have found new ways to relate to their sexual energy and erotic aliveness with the help of psychedelics. Topics such as language, trauma, the thirst to feel "whole," and fluidity will be part of this talk. Questions, ideas and personal experiences will be welcomed in this space.

About Lucia:

First of all, I am a human wanting to live a full, meaningful, pleasureful and courageous life. Secondly, I am a psychotherapist working primarily with sexuality, couples and psychedelic-assisted therapy in Longmont, CO. I am originally from Brazil & Uruguay and speak Portuguese, Spanish and English fluently.

I am a trauma-trained and multicultural informed therapist. I recently completed a PhD in Clinical Sexology studying the effects of psychedelics on erotic freedom. In 2022 I gave a talk at TEDx CU on sexual fantasies (

My formal trainings include an M.Aa at Naropa University, MDMA-assisted training with MAPS, cannabis and ketamine-assisted psychotherapy with Innate Path, attachment couples therapy with PACT and somatic therapy with Somatic Experiencing. Being a psychotherapist feels sacred. I am delighted to be present with people as they explore the depths, edges and beauty of their existence. My passion also lies in helping the planet become more sex positive, helping people access erotic energy as a vehicle to experience more inner freedom.
