(WHAT HAPPENED TO DIMITRI?! The event we had planned for this evening with Dimitri had to be rescheduled because Dimitri had to go to New York unexpectedly. So instead we decided to have a community discussion to launch the new Sitting Safe guide that we we have been working on.)

Doors open at 7:00 PM for mingling and tea. Tea provided by the I.AM.LIFE Guayusa Tea Lounge.
Presentation will be from 8-10PM.

Community Discussion on Sitting Safe: Ceremony Preparation and Risk Reduction with InnerSpace Integration Circle Facilitators

How do we, as a community, create a space for the conversation about 'right relationship' with these life-changing earth medicines?

In the coming months, we aim to introduce a number of topics that we will expand upon with the help of the medicine community and integration network. 

Sitting Safe Series Topics Include:

Part 1: Recommendations to would-be participants
-Questions to ask yourself
-Questions to consider asking a practitioner
-Questions a practitioner should ask you
Part 2: Medicine Pacing
Part 3: Best Practices for Facilitators
Part 4: Ethics and Agreements
Part 5: Trip sitting
Part 6: Healing Communities


This month we will begin this conversation with the first topic around recommendations to seekers around what questions they should be considering asking themselves and potential facilitators before they decide to join a circle.
