The Psilocybin Training Program at Synaptic Training Institute is designed to prepare graduates for licensure as psilocybin facilitators under Oregon’s Psilocybin Services Initiative (Measure 109).
The program is fully accredited by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) and features in-person retreats, online weekends, and weekly evening sessions, over the course of nine months. The program includes participation in 16 journal clubs, completion of pre-recorded lectures and activities, and at least 50 hours of practical experience, 20 directly supervised by experienced faculty members.
The program aims to create a vibrant, conscious, and diverse community that optimizes the learning experience and creates healing and growth opportunities. Each cohort will consist of 32 trainees and will be placed in home groups of four for various activities, including group supervision. The program is open to licensed and unlicensed professionals, and applicants must be 21 years of age and have a high school diploma or equivalent.
The next cohort will likely start in August 2023.
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.
