Building An Ethical Foundation For Psychedelic Professionals

Building An Ethical Foundation For Psychedelic Professionals

As more mental-health, counselling, coaching and wellness professionals engage psychedelics in their professions, the more we need a common ethical foundation to guide our efforts. This is important for a variety of reasons, one of which is the fact that treating with psychedelics, or guiding others in their use, is unlike any other form of therapy, counselling or coaching. For instance, with most pre-psychedelic approaches to...

When The Universe Speaks

A Pattern of Synchronicities “Synchronicity: A meaningful coincidence of two or more events where something other than the probability of chance is involved.” ~ Carl Jung It would appear the forces of the universe are sending some powerful messages my way. I have been living on the Sunshine Coast of BC (Canada) for around 2.5 years. I came over here following the end of a year long relationship which eviscerated my heart and...
