The Psychedelics and The Shadow course is an at-home self-study course that explores the various layers of psychedelia and the shadow side of these layers through interviews with experts.
The course covers topics such as the definition of the shadow, how Jung viewed the shadow, issues of abuse reported during psychedelic ceremonies, spiritual bypassing, the shamanic view of illness and dealing with the shadow, and how capitalism is shaping and fueling the shadow aspects of psychedelics.
The course is facilitated by Kyle Buller, M.S., Ido Cohen, Psy.D., Deanna Rogers, and Scott Hill, Ph.D. It will provide lifetime access to video lectures for students to review the material whenever possible.

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.
