More details about each event, ticketing information, and registration instructions will be sent out within the next week, so stay tuned! 


On Sunday March 29th, we will be partnering with ERIE to hold an integration workshop at the Haven in Oakland, a 3-hour event where participants will learn how to hold space for those to share, explore, process, and integrate psychedelic experiences into their lives.  More details will come in a separate email in the coming weeks, but please save the date!

Dovetailing this workshop, Beth Topczewski, master’s student in Somatic Psychology at CIIS and Rosen Method bodywork intern, will be holding a closed 6-week integration group running Monday evenings from March 30-May 4th in the East Bay. In this small group, participants will support each other in bringing medicine experiences into their day-to-day lives more fully through sharing and personal reflection/embodiment exercises. The group will be small, 6 people max, to allow for deep sharing in this short period of time. $40-60 is requested as a donation to cover the cost of space for this group. Please reach out to Beth at [email protected] to register or express interest in this or future integration groups! If you are interested but those dates/times don’t work for you, please reach out anyway as there may be flexibility with the schedule. 

Looking forward to seeing all of you at these exciting events!
