Trauma, Psilocybin & Psychedelic Harm Reduction: An Educational Workshop

January 31, 2021     4:00-6:00pm PST

Live Online via Zoom

Cost: $25-$75 sliding scale

please consider your ability to pay when selecting your price

With the increase in research and attention on the use of psychedelics in the treatment of trauma, more people are curious about this aspect of healing but struggle to access health education, safe community, and clear information on the use of psilocybin.  

This educational workshop is designed to provide evidence-based, non-judgmental information for people who are using or considering using psilocybin to address trauma and other mental health & substance use concerns. Facilitated by a registered trauma therapist, and a former ER nurse & educator with lived experience using psychedelic medicines to treat trauma, this workshop is intended to offer a safe space to learn, ask questions, and empower you to make the best health decisions you can.
