In this one-of-a-kind workshop, we’ll cover a range of altered states induced by chanting, dance, sound bath, and meditation, and gain a deep understanding of the significance of holding space as a vital tool for interpersonal growth.

In an era marked by increasing access and the potential legalization of psychedelic substances, it has become more crucial than ever to comprehend both the power and limits of these substances and acknowledge the therapeutic potential of altered states without drugs. Prepare to delve into the fundamentals of psychedelic-assisted therapies, explore the latest scientific approaches, and learn about the long-repressed potential of cannabis as a psychedelic.
