Somatic & Psychedelic Medicine Embodied
Dr. Devon Christie MD IFM CP RTC – Sasha Cuff RTC
We live in a time where suffering and its causes are rampant, embedded in systems of structural violence and oppression. Fortunately, there are powerful tools emerging that lend the ability to greatly accelerate liberation and healing, paving the way for structural wholesomeness.
Through engaging dialogue interspersed with playful experiential practices, Devon and Sasha will guide you in an embodied introduction to how two emerging fields – somatic psychotherapy, and the renaissance of psychedelic medicine – combine synergistically to create transformative opportunities for healing and freedom.
This workshop will provide participants with practical suggestions for navigating non-ordinary states, where the intention is for connection, growth, healing and awakening. We also intend to inspire and empower therapists and healers of every kind in their capacity to meet and assist the resolution of trauma and suffering.
Devon and Sasha are sacred partners devoted to a path of relational awakening, and they are leaders in the field of psychedelic psychotherapy.
