Resilience & Healing in a Turbulent World: A Trauma-Informed Cannabis-Assisted Psychedelic Therapy Group with Daniel and Alison McQueen
Join Alison and Daniel McQueen at the Center for Medicinal Mindfulness in Boulder, Colorado for a monthly, Two-Day Cannabis-Assisted Psychedelic Therapy Group Intensive
Starting August 8 (See Full Schedule Below)
If you’re a human being on this planet, navigating the challenges we all currently face, chances are you have been experiencing some degree of stress in your life. Ongoing stress leads to internal challenges as well, and if left unattended, can cause significant mental health concerns.
The symptoms can present differently in different people – some common ones being depression, anxiety, existential dread, grief, and post-traumatic stress. We may simply hold a deep heaviness that we wish wasn’t there. These are trying times, and developing a mindfulness-based, plant medicine practice can provide the nervous system regulation, resilience, and inspiration to move through this time, not just survive, but also thrive.
The monthly program includes a free discovery call, an individual preparation session, a group preparation session by zoom, two-day psychedelic cannabis intensive in Boulder, two weekly integration sessions by zoom, and a final individual check-in.
Initial onboarding for new clients includes a full medical evaluation and safety assessment, and an initial individual preparation session.
Initial Investment: A one time onboarding fee of $500 includes a medical evaluation and initial individual preparation session with Daniel or Alison. Current MM clients can skip the medical evaluation if already completed, so the one time fee is reduced to $150 for the initial 45 minute preparation session. This investment qualifies our clients to attend all future cannabis-assisted and ketamine-assisted therapy groups.
Intensive Investment: $1,500 for each 2-day 5hr/day Psychedelic Cannabis intensive for clinical concerns (in-person and in Boulder, CO). Includes a group preparation session (1.5hrs by zoom), two integration sessions (1.5hrs each by zoom), and an individual 30-minute post journey check-in. Group sizes are small and are limited to 6-9.
Our Diversity and Inclusion Scholarships apply to the Group Intensives providing up to a 40% discount on the intensive. The medical eval and onboarding has already been reduced to the minimum financial investment we can offer. Daniel and Alison McQueen will attend all sessions, with 1-2 trained psychedelic guides as additional support.
One time or ongoing: For some people, one intensive is enough to initiate the next chapter in their lives, for some people it takes a few intensives. Others will want to attend ongoing for additional transformation and growth. This is a monthly, ongoing healing and personal growth intensive. Clients are invited to come to as many 2-day intensives as they wish.
Location: Center for Medicinal Mindfulness – 75 Manhattan Drive, Suite 106, Boulder, CO 80303
Participants are required to have a designated driver after each of the intensive sessions (or walk to your room in the next door hotel). Currently, full covid vaccination is required, but this will be assessed on an ongoing basis.
Once the application is received, we will review and respond with an invite to the free discovery call.
Out of Town Clients are Encouraged to Apply
We have an agreement with the hotel that is next door to reduce lodging costs for out of town participants. The monthly group is designed to support attending in-person during a short visit to Boulder, with ongoing, online preparation and integration support.
This is a monthly, ongoing group that has been scheduled through the end of 2022.
