The Integration Essentials course is a 12-week program for therapists and healthcare providers who want a deeper understanding of critical concepts in psychedelic integration work. This course will provide a comprehensive study of various perspectives on psychedelic healing, including academic research, mindfulness-based psychotherapy, and indigenous wisdom traditions.
The course is structured to engage students in thought-provoking readings and discussions, covering topics such as theories of psychedelic action, ego and self-dissolution, micro-dosing, harm reduction, creativity, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), shamanic and neo shamanic ayahuasca practices, inner healing intelligence, and harm reduction psychotherapy. The course materials, including assigned and supplemental readings, will be accessed through an online learning platform.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to explain the concept of “unconstrained mind” and its role in psychedelic therapy, describe the importance of set and setting, list basic safety precautions in academic research, analyze the meaning of “ego” in psychedelic therapy, describe the principles of ACT and their application in psychedelic integration therapy, use concepts from meditation and psychotherapy to understand growth in psychedelic integration therapy, and critique different theories of psychedelic effects and their relevance to integration therapy.
This course is given each quarter and qualifies for 15 continuing education (CE) credits.
Tatayo (“Fruit of the Wind”) first arrived in Gabon in 1971 at the age of 21 and became a Gabonese citizen. In 1979, he became the first white person to be initiated into the Bwiti Fang tradition in Gabon. In 1994, he was initiated into the Misokko tradition. As a guide for numerous expeditions and missions, including those of National Geographic, the BBC, and others, Tatayo is considered to have “opened the door” to westerners in Gabon.
