The pioneering research and clinical work of Stanislav Grof, M.D., is currently informing a new generation of psychedelic researchers and therapists who are again examining the enhanced wellness, healing, creativity and spirituality inherent in the psychedelic experience. Potential applications of psychedelic therapy include the treatment of depression, PTSD, addiction and end-of-life care. The education and training of therapists must emphasize not only the healing potential of these expanded states of consciousness, but also the perils of unskillful use. Helping clients INTEGRATE these extraordinary experiences is paramount. This course will include Grof Holotropic Breathwork, art, writing, council process and a documentary film. We will explore topics including:
–the cross-cultural use of psychoactive substances
–current research of psychedelic therapy
–the skillful use of psychedelic substances
–the healing potential and perils of working with psychoactive catalysts
–the integration of strong non-ordinary experiences
NOTE: The topic of psychedelics will be entirely theoretical.
