Course Description

The Microdosing Facilitator Training Program at Microdosing Institute is a 9-month intensive study that was created to help coaches, therapists, and practitioners in the field of health and wellbeing feel confident to safely and effectively incorporate microdosing guidance into their offerings. Students will leave the training feeling prepared and supported to facilitate guided microdosing journeys from screening and intake to integration, both in a 1-to-1 and group setting.

Students will be holistically supported throughout the program via a combination of video learning and hands-on exercises, masterclasses with industry experts, practical experience, virtual knowledge integration circles, and peer-to-peer learning and mentoring.

The next cohort is planned for January 2024. The 6-Week Microdosing Intensive (also by the Microdosing Institute) is a prerequisite for this course.

About Instructor

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.
