Join this FREE WEBINAR presented by Dr Ronald D. Siegel (USA).
TOPIC: Mindfulness, Compassion, & Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy: Harnessing the Synergies
How might contemplative practices prepare us to use psychedelic medicines? How might they help us guide others? Can we use meditative practices during the sessions themselves? Might they help us integrate what arises in sessions afterwards? And how can psychedelics support our contemplative practice?
Refined over thousands of years in countless wisdom traditions, mindfulness and compassion practices can help us accept and integrate difficult mental contents and parts of ourselves, deconstruct our conventional sense of self, and connect us more deeply to others and the wider world—making them a powerful complement to psychedelic exploration.
Our Webinar Will Explore:
- The varieties of contemplative practice that can augment psychedelics for psychological and spiritual growth and healing
- How mindfulness and self-compassion practice can prepare us for psychedelic journeys
- The skills we need to effectively guide psychedelic sessions and how contemplative practices can cultivate them
- How meditative practices can support us during psychedelic sessions and make them more fruitful
- The use of mindfulness and self-compassion practices to integrate insights from psychedelic journeys
- How psychedelics can kindle transpersonal experiences, making them more accessible in meditation practice
- The dangers of spiritual bypass in psychedelic work
