In psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy clients are surrendering to an as yet unknown transformation. It is crucial that patients are able to trust the person who sits with them during their exploration. They need to know the person they will rely on is willing to do their very best to attune to the extra-ordinary experience with them and to provide reassurance as needed in that world. And, at the same time, maintain a safe physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual container for the explorer.

This course provides a self-reflective and self-compassionate approach to Right Relationship; an internal approach which puts our focus on motivations, those deep, not always conscious urges that precede our behaviors with clients.

The self-inquiry of Right Relationship complements and amplifies the external, behavioral approach of traditional ethics education (the laws, codes, and standards that guide us behaviorally.)

    Very engaging and informative training. Kylea’s expertise in the worlds of Holotropic Breathwork® and psychedelics is evident in how the similarities and differences of these modalities are woven into this training. These are two worlds in which I walk, and I am thankful for an expanded model of ethics that includes the traditional approach without condemning it. This training has made me eager to hear more about the Ethics of Caring.

    It’s truly a game changer in how we can perceive authentic caring. Rather than throwing darts at ourselves, in the event of an ethical misstep, these tools offer ways to gracefully course-correct to being in right relationship with ourselves and others. I am beyond grateful for these teachings.
