A Personal & Professional Transformation

“Completing the Relational Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy program was a professionally and personally transformative experience. I’m so grateful for the deep knowledge and human connections this course provided.

I gained tools to ethically and safely incorporate psychedelic-assisted therapy into my practice. The facilitators created an open, compassionate environment where we could explore significant topics — including embodied practices, harm reduction, and maintaining right relationship with plant medicines — with wisdom and care.

For anyone called to this purposeful work, I highly recommend this course.”

“Beckley’s position in psychedelic education has manifested spectacularly with the Relational Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy program.

The course was challenging, and delivered several curveballs, in a way that so many traditional practitioners could benefit from…gently broaching sensitive topics that can flip your mind upside-down.

I would never have thought it would be possible that I could recommend online training above classroom training, but the quality of this course was so good, it would unquestionably contend with any other of its type.”

—Stephen Galvin, MD
