Banyen's Description: 

Exploring the latest developments from the flourishing field of modern psychedelic psychotherapy, this book shares practical experiences and insights from both elders and newer research voices in the psychedelic research and clinical communities.

The contributors examine new findings on safe and skillful work with psychedelic and expanded states for therapeutic, personal, and spiritual growth as well as addressing challenging psychedelic experiences and spiritual emergencies. They explain the dual process of opening and healing—how opening the mind and the heart with psychedelics and expanded states can help dissolve psychic barriers and encourage deep healing. They explore new approaches for individual inner work as well as for the healing of ancestral and collective trauma. They examine the power of expanded states for reparative attachment work and offer insights on the integration process through the lens of holotropic breathwork. The contributors also examine the use of cannabis as a psychedelic tool, spiritual exploration with LSD, micro-dosing with Iboga, treating depression with psilocybin, and MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD.

Revealing diverse ways of working with psychedelics in terms of set, setting, and type of substance, the book concludes with discussions of ethics and professional development for those working in the field as well as exploring considerations for training the next generation of psychedelic therapists.

A remarkable collection of sophisticated psychedelic therapists and integration specialists sharing new methods, new models, and theoretical underpinnings for both. What makes this volume invaluable is the wide range of solutions that the writers have come up with for helping and healing. There is a richness of ideas and case histories here, and no matter what your orientation is, you’re going to learn many other ways your own work might go.” James Fadiman, microdose researcher, author of The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide
