Heartships: Group Psychedelic Experiences


Several years ago I was standing in front of the stove, cooking mac and cheese for my little girl, and staring off into space. I was daydreaming about a ceremony space I wanted to build for our Conscious Cannabis Circles and my daughter walked up to me and showed me her doll.

“Daddy, my baby’s name is Heartship,” she said.

I looked at her, misunderstanding, and replied, “Hardship? Why would you name your baby Hardship?”

And she looked at me and said, “No, Daddy, Heartship. My baby’s name is Heartship.”

She was maybe three at the time. “Heartship,” I said, repeating it, staring back into that space I was in, and saw our event space in my mind’s eye and realized the shape of it was two hearts superimposed on each other, facing opposite directions. I had already used the analogy of the ship for years by then, so there it was, “Heartship,” named by my three year old in a very odd and synchronistically timed exchange. I got online later and googled it and found an Urban Dictionary definition of “heartship” and I was sold: Pure love, deep from the “heart” – an untainted friend – “ship” that fuses together becoming a wonderful “heartship.”

Over the years the image of the Heartship has evolved from a physical location to a group process, a collaborative journey of self discovery and deep healing that is accessible to all people. The group container not only makes the therapeutic process financially accessible to a larger number of people, it actually expedites the healing process for all participants. Just being together helps each other wake up and heal. – Daniel McQueen, co-founder of the Center for Medicinal Mindfulness.

Group Psychedelic Experiences

The Center for Medicinal Mindfulness trusts in the power, safety, and efficacy of sacred medicines, and is committed to making Psychedelic Experiences as accessible as possible, to as many people as possible. We also trust in the power of community, and we know deep in our bones that healing does not happen in isolation. For this reason we are happy to host group psychedelic experiences various times throughout the year. These transformative experiences will give you the opportunity to experience profound healing and awakening, and empower you to step into the best years of your life. These group experiences also allow for an approximately 50% (or more) cost reduction compared to individual services. They also invite us all to harness the power of self-awakening in a safe and sacred community of fellow explorers. Our team of psychedelic guides are here to support you every step of the way. These community experiences include intentional preparation and intention setting as well as integration support after the journey. Come join the magic!
