PSYCHEDELIC EDUCATION AND SUPPORT
Please Note: We do not provide referrals to “underground” (illegal) psychedelic services.
We work from a harm reduction perspective, focusing on education, supporting healing, and minimizing the risks of unsupervised use.
Have you had a psychedelic experience and are looking for some support around processing it? Are you curious about psychedelics or know someone who uses them and wonder if they are safe?
The use of most psychedelics in the United States is still outlawed outside of research settings. The reality is however, that many individuals continue to use these substances in a variety of settings, sometimes less than optimal. The reemergence of research on psychedelics has created an increased interest and willingness to experiment with non-ordinary states of consciousness.
Our goal at the Whole Living Center is to increase awareness, support positive change, and provide a safe, holding environment for community members who are curious about or who have had experiences with psychedelics. We offer services that support healing while reducing the risks of psychedelic use.
Psychedelic Education Group
This group is for anyone wanting to learn more about psychedelics and their potential risks and benefits. Each session will consist of an educational component and time for discussion and questions. Some of the topics explored will include: an overview of psychedelic research, the importance of set and setting and the role of peer support and safety. Each month, we will focus on a different topic of interest and we welcome your suggestions for subjects you want to learn more about.
Psychedelic Integration Group
This drop-in group will allow you to make connections with other group members who are exploring psychedelics. Discussions will focus on processing states of non-ordinary consciousness, and facilitating healing and growth. You will be encouraged to share your experience and ask any questions you may have. In a safe, nonjudgmental environment, you can integrate any insights or challenging emotions, while being supported by the group.
Individual sessions can be used for integration of psychedelic experiences. In a safe, professional, and non-judgmental environment, you may explore your concerns and process any emotions or insights. You may also want to clarify your desire to use psychedelics and learn alternative ways of accessing expanded states of consciousness.
