Coaching and the New 

Psychedelic Paradigm

May 20 & 21, 2022

11:00am - 8:30pm Eastern Time

The First 
 Psychedelic Conference 
 On Non-Clinical Outcomes

The Only  
  Psychedelic Conference  
  On Non-Clinical Outcomes

While the mainstream focuses on clinical outcomes for conditions like depression, PTSD, and anxiety…

We firmly believe that psychedelics hold tremendous healing potential for everyone, not just the unwell.

That's why we're holding the first conference focused on non-clinical outcomes in a coaching context.

This is an opportunity to engage in meaningful, professional conversations about how coaches can use these transformational tools ethically, responsibly, and inclusively.
