Course Description

Are you providing or interested in providing psychedelic-assisted therapy? Embodied Inquiry (EI) offers practitioners a roadmap for navigating the complexity, intensity and vulnerability that arises in this work. EI is derived from mindfulness, somatic therapy and trauma-sensitive approaches  designed to support safe, therapeutic, and transformative experiences for clients exploring psychedelic healing. Join our 3-day highly experiential workshop that introduces participants to the practice of EI and its application through preparation, medicine sessions and integration.

The embodied inquiry model provides a reliable framework for orienting yourself in the arc of the therapy, freeing up cognitive bandwidth to bring curiosity, non-judgment, and kindness to the investigation of whatever is arising in session. These foundational attitudes enhance your own compassion and resilience and helps to strengthen the therapeutic container for your client’s exploration.

  • By using this framework, you’ll be able to help your clients with:
  • Better regulation of emotional states
  • Separation from overwhelming emotions and repetitive thinking
  • Increase in self-efficacy and ability to process learnings from psychedelic experiences
  • Increased resilience in managing difficult emotions, sensations, and experiences

This course includes live zoom sessions and online pre-work.

Time Commitments

  • 4 hours of online pre-work (total)

On the second day, we will continue to practice our skills by applying trauma-specific skills to embodies inquiry by deepening our understanding of how trauma manifests in the body and mind.

Day 3: Inquiry and Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy

Our final day is spent discussing embodied inquiry as applied to psychedelic-assisted therapy as a means of working with dysregulation and help clients maintain attention to their present moment experience. We will spend most of this session working through cases.
