MDMA Therapy Training Program: June 2022 Update
In May 2022, the MDMA Therapy Training Team hosted their second 100-hour blended (online/in person) training program and hosted a week-long in-person training retreat in Colorado (pictured above). In addition to the synchronous and online course content, the training retreat incorporated immersive learning components including art therapy projects, an evening music experiential evening, gong bath performance, and the SoundSelf technology by EntheoDigital, which engages your voice in a biofeedback loop enhanced by vibro-acoustics and light therapy. June training plans include an in-person retreat at Omega Institute in New York and a collaboration with CPTR in California.
