Tuesday May 9th, 630 PM Pikes Peak Meet Up
This month for the Psychedelic Professionals Meet Up we will be having a panel with 4 practitioners who work in the psychedelic space using a variety of approaches that include clinical, ceremonial, and peer-support. They will share the pathway each followed into this work and will provide information about what to consider when choosing support for deeper healing work. There will be a Q&A period after.
Join us May 9th 630 PM at The Next Us 525 North Cascade, upstairs. We have a new, better ventilated space this month so join us with your questions and bring a friend.
