Botanical Allies for Entheogenic Journeys

Entheogens have been used throughout millennia for healing and are now becoming more integrated into modern psychiatric care. This talk will discuss ways clinical herbalists can support their clients currently engaging in psychedelic therapy and think about the ways herbal medicine can be a part of integrative mental health treatment. We will discuss pharmacology, potential herb/drug interactions, and specific botanicals that can be used to help prepare and integrate client's experiences. This class will go over Western and Chinese herbal strategies as well as other holistic modalities.
