The School of Consciousness Medicine provides students with an education that is rigorous, somatic, didactic and experiential. SCM graduates emerge with the practical tools and inner wisdom to be skillful, embodied practitioners in the field of Psychedelic Assisted Therapy.
Our programs are designed to meet the varying needs of incoming students. The SCM tuition philosophy is designed to ensure inclusion for all who are called to this work.
The School of Consciousness Medicine provides students with an education that combines Earth based wisdom, ritual, and expanded states of consciousness, with psychotherapeutic knowledge, coaching skills, and embodiment practices. Graduates will have developed and refined the skills necessary to support the preparation, interpretation, and integration of what emerges during expanded states of consciousness, including those induced by psychedelics.
Didactically – through lecture, oral transmission, group instruction
Experientially – through practice in dyads and small groups, large group workshops with experts in various fields of study, teacher facilitated practice sessions and fishbowl-style sample sessions
Somatically – engaging the principles and content through daily meditation, movement, breathwork, creative expression
Students are exposed to a range of modalities and teachers in the context of an intimate container. Our programs offer an experiential, process oriented learning environment with cohorts of approximately 20 students who are supported by core faculty and assistants. CCM guest teachers offer graduate level expertise in their respective fields.
The fundamental and professional programs satisfy the prerequisite for the Psychedelic Guide Training Program (PGTP). Those who already qualify for the PGTP will take a pre-training workshop to gain foundational understanding of the Consciousness Medicine approach.
**SCM does not engage in activities directly involving psychotropic substances. Learn more about experiential learning and treatment opportunities through CCMC
