Fluence Newsletter - May 2021

Upcoming Fall courses, TIME Magazine, and much more

Dear community,

There is so much happening at Fluence, we’ve decided we need to send a monthly newsletter so that you can stay up-to-date on the many offerings available for our community of learners.

The field of psychedelic therapy is blossoming, and Fluence is growing to keep pace. We are proud to announce the addition of three new Assistant Trainers to the Fluence team, including Dr. Joseph McCowan (clinical psychologist), Dr. Dan Roberts (psychiatrist), and Aja Molinar, MA (New School for Social Research).

New assistant trainers Joseph McCowan, PsyD; Aja Molinar, MA; and Dan Roberts, MD.

In the first edition of the monthly Fluence Newsletter, you’ll find:

  • A new publication from Portland Psychotherapy in Harm Reduction Journal on “Ethical and Legal Issues of Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration Therapy” highlights Fluence’s role in preparing clinicians to care for their patients

  • And even more below

Follow Fluence on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay connected to our fast-growing community of psychedelic healthcare practitioners.

ILLUMINATING SELF: New Writing & Meditation Group for Therapists

Wednesdays starting July 7, 2021 at 3pm ET

This course is designed for therapists, healthcare, and wellness providers who are interested in deepening their ability to understand and serve clients/patients during their psychedelic preparation and integration through their own inner-directed work. Using contemplative practices that create non-ordinary states of consciousness—yoga, breathwork, and writing exercises—we will explore our own inner landscapes. Includes six sessions and one private phone consultation.
