Sacred plants, fungi, and animals have been interwoven with indigenous healing and visionary practices for millennia. Modern science and clinical practice are now exploring their potential to treat severe and intractable conditions like depression, anxiety, and PTSD. This self-paced online course introduces nurses to psychedelic therapy from traditional and scientific perspectives.
Through three modules, nurses will learn about sacred medicine traditions, current clinical research, and the emerging role of holistic nursing in this field. Videos, readings, and written discussions cultivate knowledge and community. By honouring cultural roots while reviewing clinical evidence, this course provides a unique, nursing-focused foundation in psychedelic therapy. Join us to gain perspective, build connections, and help shape the future of this emerging paradigm.
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.
