Navigating Psychedelics


Show Notes

MAPS Press Release

Therapists Are Unprepared to Talk to People About Taking Psychedelics

  • Should there be some sort of body regulating therapist training in integration?
    • Should there be a standardized training?
  • There are going to be good therapists that care, and go out of their way and get the training, and there will be bad therapists, that do harm
    • It's a long and difficult topic
    • Should people be going to jail for being bad therapists?
  • Looking at breathwork, there are training groups, but there isn't one large, overarching group that governs all trainings
  • “Are we acting with integrity if we aren't bringing the utmost safety to the table?” - Joe

Group Setting Impact

  • How is COVID going to impact psychedelic tourism?
  • In breathwork, people are potentially coughing, crying, and in general just doing heavy breathing, COVID is super contagious

About Kyle

Kyle’s interest in exploring non-ordinary states of consciousness began when he was 16-years-old when he suffered a traumatic snowboarding accident. Waking up after having a near-death experience changed Kyle’s life. Since then, Kyle has earned his B.A. in Transpersonal Psychology, where he studied the healing potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness by exploring shamanism, plant medicine, Holotropic Breathwork, and the roots/benefits of psychedelic psychotherapy. Kyle has co-taught two college-level courses. One of the courses Kyle created as a capstone project, “Stanislav Grof’s Psychology of Extraordinary Experiences,” and the other one which he co-created, “The History of Psychedelics.”

Kyle completed his M.S. in clinical mental health counseling with an emphasis in somatic psychology. Kyle’s clinical background in mental health consists of working with at-risk teenagers in crisis and with individuals experiencing an early-episode of psychosis. Kyle also facilitates Transpersonal Breathwork workshops.

About Joe

Joe studied philosophy in New Hampshire, where he earned his B.A.. After stumbling upon the work of Stanislav Grof during his undergraduate years, Joe began participating in Holotropic Breathwork workshops in Vermont in 2003. Joe helped facilitate Holotropic and Transpersonal Breathwork workshops while he spent his time in New England. He is now working in the software industry as well as hosting a few podcasts. Joe now coordinates Dreamshadow Transpersonal Breathwork workshops, in Breckenridge, Colorado.
