Rev. Jay Waxenberg, MA

Ordained Minister,  Training Coordinator, Spiritual Companion & Psychedelic Guide/Facilitator

My journey with psychedelics and spirituality began simultaneously while earning my Master’s in Philosophy, with a focus on mysticism and the psychedelic experience, from the University of Miami. My academic studies allowed me to work closely with several shamanic traditions and plant medicines, sparking my own spiritual path. After graduating, I spent the next few years traveling the world studying various spiritual traditions—living in India, Nepal, Israel, and Spain to name a few. My spiritual training took on a more structured format when I began Interfaith Seminary, with the goal of combining ministry and psychedelics. I eventually settled in Colorado to focus on psychedelic training and completing all the Medicinal Mindfulness programs. The psychedelic techniques I have found in nearly all of the world’s spiritual traditions have convinced me that these techniques can be used by people of any belief (including no belief at all) to examine, connect, heal, grow, and change their own beliefs. Unifying years of spiritual and psychedelic training, I specialize in helping people use psychedelics to deepen their spirituality, reconnect to spiritual traditions, and discover new spiritual paths. I work with people to help them heal religious wounds, explore spirituality, and to prepare, integrate, and support them through the psychedelic experience.
