In the last couple months, psilocybin mushrooms have been decriminalized in Denver and all entheogenic plants have been decriminalized in Oakland. This is huge. While it’s certainly been a long-time coming, it’s definitely new territory for us all.
There’s never been more awareness around the therapeutic potential of psychedelic substances than there is today. And because of that awareness, more people are seeking to have experiences with these consciousness-expansion tools. This is a shift taking place in our culture, and we don’t yet have the infrastructure to facilitate that shift. We need to get ready.
As one of the steps towards getting ready, this workshop will be focused on empowering you with the knowledge and perspectives you need in order to be able to facilitate safe and therapeutic psychedelic experiences for your local communities.
While we certainly won’t be able to turn you into a shaman or a therapist (as we ourselves are neither of those), we will be able to share with you the very basics of what’s involved in the preparation, transformation and integration of psychedelic experiences.
If you’re interested in learning the art, science and business of Holding Space for yourself and others, then this workshop will be an excellent primer for you to introduce you to the field.
Soorena TV Sedighi and Annija Eyla, have been working as professional tripsitters for Toronto’s local community of heart-centered artists and entrepreneurs. Together, they have co-founded Psychedelic Evolution, an initiative aimed at empowering tripsitters worldwide. They will soon be moving to Netherlands to leverage the legality of psilocybin truffles to create a series of short films that will document the phenomenological differences between low dose, medium dose, high dose, and ultra-high dose experiences.
Location: Alternity, 333 Bloor St. West, Toronto
We intend to fulfill a need not yet accommodated within our city. Alternity is a space where wellness is the primary, in all regards. Our mission is to create a space with alternatives for how we indulge, consume, and connect with each other. A community living room where we can gather and come closer to like-minded individuals.
Coffee culture has long been based around the coming together of great minds and thinkers. The philosophers, artists, revolutionaries, and change-makers (way-seers) of our communities. A place where great change has developed through conversation and the coming together of minds. The physical space created for Alternity was developed with the concept ‘Heterotopia’ in mind. A term coined by Foucoult meaning 'a social space of otherness at once physical and interpsychic’, created to curate the mind spaces for an experience.
