Here is a list of preparation, integration and professional consultation groups offered by our network providers.
Psychedelic Men’s Group
So many men lose track of their true selves in day-to-day life. We forget that we don’t have to do it alone. And we falsely believe that we are isolated in our struggles, fears, and desires. Men’s work can help break this spell by providing a much-needed pillar where we can gather our strength.
Ask yourself: How would your life be different if you had a supportive community of like-minded and psychedelically experienced men to regularly connect with? What can psychedelics teach us about healthy masculinity in the 21st century? What stories about being a man might need to die, and what stories might need to be resurrected or reimagined? What can myth, archetypes, and psychedelics teach us about masculinity in a rapidly changing world?
This group offers a space for men to come together with a shared desire to integrate psychedelic experiences, and explore how these journeys apply to their life.
Men’s work is a powerful way to step into your embodied, integrated, and empowered self. Regularly connecting with a group of likeminded men can transform your life, helping you stay accountable, and on the path of purpose.
How Long: Ongoing, but an initial 3-month commitment is required to join.
When: First three Tuesdays of each month. 7pm-9pm (2 hours.)
How much: $100 per month (insurance not accepted)

Psychedelic integration through visionary art
Join Lesley Burke, LPC, LAT, ATR in a workshop devoted to exploring the integration of non-ordinary state experiences through the artistic process. Group members will be invited to partake in mindfulness exercises, journaling, and art making in order to integrate the wisdom of previous non-ordinary state experiences into their daily lives. Non ordinary state experiences may include, but is not limited to, psychedelic experiences, expanded state experiences through spiritual practices, dreams, meditation, or transformative life events. Due to the current legal status of psychedelic medicines, no substances will be promoted or condoned at this event.

Psychedelic Integration Group
This group facilitated by Dr. Brian Pilecki is aimed at individuals who have had prior psychedelic experiences and are interested in a therapeutic and intentional approach to integration work.
Even though public attitudes about psychedelics are shifting, there still exists much stigma and judgment about non-ordinary states of consciousness. Psychedelic experiences may seem foreign or strange to others and are not typically valued in mainstream culture. Many people feel that they do not have a place to talk about psychedelic experiences, even though those experiences may have been profound and influential in their lives. When this occurs, people may then dismiss or overlook these experiences, potentially losing opportunities to grow and learn from them.
What are the benefits from integration in a group format?
- Sharing and listening to others can help normalize psychedelic experiences so that you don’t feel alone or “crazy.” This can help reduce any existing self-judgment or stigma associated with psychedelic usage.
- Hearing about the way others have experienced psychedelics can be helpful in making sense of what is often an ineffable, or indescribable, experience. Though psychedelic experiences can vary widely, there are some common elements that can be helpful in understanding what happened during an altered state.
- Group support can be helpful in translating insights or wisdom gained from psychedelics into meaningful life changes. Groups can provide accountability, problem-solving, and a sense of community for individuals who value personal growth.
- Having an experienced group facilitator who is knowledgeable about psychedelics is important to create a safe, supportive environment for group members to share and learn from each other.
