Psychedelic integration serves both of these needs. Yet, despite appearing as a buzz-phrase across psychedelic media, the necessity of this process in psychedelic healing can be often overlooked.

Join psychotherapist and author of Psychedelic Integration: Psychotherapy for Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness, Marc Aixalà for a conversation about the myriad dimensions of psychedelic integration. 

With extensive experience in psychedelic therapy and psychedelic crisis support, Marc will be unraveling what we mean by psychedelic integration, and how it can help navigate difficult journeys and harness the transformative capacities of altered states. 

Marc will also discuss integration in clinical practice, and raise concerns within the psychedelic field where patient care and integration support may be being neglected. He traces the evolution of psychedelic-assisted therapy and integration research from the 1960s to the present moment, explains therapeutic techniques and outlines a clinician’s real-world observations on the deep work of healing.

All ticket holders will be sent a video recording of the event and will receive a discount code to purchase Marc's book.
