      Trauma-informed psilocybin facilitation refers to the use of the psychedelic compound psilocybin with safety and trauma sensitivity, with a particular focus on understanding and addressing trauma imprints that may arise. Psilocybin is the active compound found in certain species of mushrooms.

      When facilitating psilocybin experiences for individuals who have experienced trauma, it is essential to approach the process with a trauma-informed lens. This means that facilitators should have a deep understanding of trauma, its impact on individuals, and how to create a safe and supportive environment for healing.

      Being trauma-informed in psilocybin facilitation essential, and we will be covering the following topics in our masterclass:

      1. Safety: Trauma survivors may have unique sensitivities and vulnerabilities. Trauma-informed facilitation prioritizes safety and minimizes the risk of re-traumatization. By understanding trauma and its effects, facilitators can create a safe environment that promotes healing and minimizes potential harm.
      2. Trust and Therapeutic Alliance: Building a trusting and therapeutic relationship between the facilitator and the participant is crucial. Trauma-informed facilitation emphasizes the establishment of trust, respect, and rapport, which are essential for trauma survivors to feel comfortable and supported during the psilocybin experience,
      3. Trauma Triggers: Trauma survivors may have triggers—certain stimuli or situations that can evoke intense emotional or physiological reactions linked to their traumatic experiences. Trauma-informed facilitation helps identify and mitigate potential triggers during the psilocybin session, ensuring a more contained and manageable experience for the participant.
      4. Empowerment and Choice: Trauma-informed facilitation recognizes the importance of giving individuals a sense of empowerment and choice. Trauma survivors may have experienced a loss of control during their traumatic experiences. By involving participants in the decision-making process and respecting their autonomy, facilitators help restore a sense of agency, which can contribute to the healing process.
      5. Understanding Trauma Responses: Trauma can manifest in various ways, such as hyperarousal, dissociation, or numbing. Facilitators who are trauma-informed are familiar with these responses and can adapt their approach accordingly. They can provide appropriate support and interventions to address and regulate the participant's emotional and physiological responses during the psilocybin experience.
      6. Integration and Aftercare: Trauma-informed facilitation extends beyond the psilocybin session itself. It includes comprehensive integration support and aftercare. Trauma survivors often require ongoing support in integrating and making sense of their experiences, and trauma-informed facilitators provide the necessary resources, guidance, and referrals for continued healing.

      By integrating trauma-informed principles into psilocybin facilitation, the process becomes more attuned to the specific needs and vulnerabilities of trauma survivors. This approach helps create a safer, more supportive, and empowering environment, maximizing the therapeutic potential of psilocybin while minimizing the risk of re-traumatization.

      Our Trauma-Informed Plant Medicine Masterclass will provide bite-sized tools and resources for facilitators to cultivate their trauma sensitivity and awareness. 

      * The recording and PDF slides will be available within 24 - 48 hours on our learning platform.

      "Wow!! Thank you so much, Atira!!!!! I just want to say thank you for holding space for such an incredible informational experience in this Trauma-Informed Plant Medicine Workshop. I feel that I have SO many resources now to draw upon now. 

      You are filled with experience and hold such beauty. vibrant energy that is powerful, but also open and level with the people you work with in such a way that it is easy to feel safe, and seen in your presence! True magic!"

      – Molly Moon, Grandmother Facilitator, Isreal.

      "This TIPM workshop’s deep dive into the realms of living impeccable service was nothing short of life-changing.

      I remembered so much about the nervous system, my life, my purpose, the bridges between paradigms, and the collective trauma on the Earth. I was deeply warmed, inspired, challenged, and excited by the entire experience.

      Atira transmits genuine, care, curiosity, understanding, and expertise. She is devoted to providing safe spaces for people to heal and her life’s work is a testimony to her wisdom and character.

      If you’re curious to learn about the nature of trauma and how to access and support its healing potential, this body of work is well worth opening your heart and mind to."

      – Melanie Gunn, Naturopath and Transpersonal Art Therapist, Australia

      "I’m super grateful for this unique program. Atira’s extensive knowledge on the subject of trauma and working within the PM context has been immensely beneficial. I’ve gained a deeper sense of how to hold the container of healing, which in turn, opens doors for journeyers to be met with more compassion, understanding, and safety to move through their process.

      This program is essential for anyone supporting or facilitating PM ceremonies and the process of preparation and integration."

      – Simone McKay, Somah Journeys Founder, Canada

      "I just came out of the 1st Trauma-informed Plant Medicine Facilitation online training with Atira Tan from Aya Healing Retreats and wow!!

      I cannot recommend this training enough for anyone working in the PM space – whether you are pouring medicine, a supporter/facilitator, a pre or post-ceremonial integration specialist, or even a student of the plants.

      In fact, I feel that this should be a basic foundational training (alongside 1st Aid) for all healers and support staff.

      As the medicine continues to gain momentum in its spread across the globe- we are beginning to see and hear more and more stories of harm from its unskilful use, the lack of quality screening and preparation beforehand, the lack of integration support afterward, and/or the limited understanding of trauma activation and re-traumatization during retreats and ceremonies.

      I feel that, in addition to traditional training, this community would benefit hugely from having facilitators and spaces rooted in a basic understanding of the nervous system and how to work skillfully with trauma survivors (and of course, how to work with our own trauma when it shows up in these spaces).

      I personally feel that Atira is an excellent bridge and guide into the intersectional realms of plant medicine and trauma therapy."

      – Skye Cielita Flor, Wilderness Therapist, South Africa

      "My mind and heart are in deep amazement and gratitude as I apply all that I learned in the Trauma-Informed Plant Medicine workshop. 

      Now more than ever, the world is in need of people who have the ability to listen and hold open space, as the entire human population is currently undergoing a traumatic event. This course is filled with gems on how to meet and support those who are intensely impacted by trauma at any stage of life. I highly recommend this course/workshop, not only to those who are interested in the relationship between trauma and plant medicine but to anyone who is curious about understanding human relational patterns to self and society.

      Atira shares in-depth knowledge and expertise in trauma studies while offering takeaways that are applicable for ceremonies, friendships, and even common conversations during the COVID time. Atira and Elio’s work is much needed in the world."

      – Betty Gottwald, Photographer & Kambo Facilitator, USA.

      "If you are ready to engage in serious trauma healing work, Atira is the practitioner to go for. Her own genuine humanness is consistently lived and embodied, and her outstandingly compassionate nature creates a strong and safe therapeutic container that cannot be surpassed. 

      After a search for decades for the right trauma therapist, all thumbs up for her, as the healing and transformation, I’ve been looking for has finally become real!"

      – Jessica Bertram, Eco-Tour Guide, Germany.

      "Learning from Atira is a reconnecting journey of the mind, heart, and soul. Her caring empathy, sensitivity, and guiding leadership are only shadowed by her multi-faceted and deep knowledge of the matter of trauma. 

      With her guidance as an experienced teacher, I felt truly grateful for discovering and learning about new perspectives which will make me not only a better teacher in the future, but a more understanding and loving human being towards anyone I encounter. And all of that in a welcoming community of like-minded, caring individuals. I wholeheartedly recommend Atira to anyone who desires to learn more about understanding and healing trauma, and the human experience as a whole."

      - Kai York, Photographer, Art Director, New York

      "Atira’s course is a valuable in-depth introduction to trauma and the various ways it can manifest in a ceremonial setting. 

      Since taking the course, I’ve changed the lens through which I review applications and screen potential journeyers. The course has taught me how to use trauma-informed language to empower people to make their own decisions. 

      Atira creates a beautiful, safe container for her students to dive into sensitive topics. I appreciate her making herself available for questions during the class and through additional one-on-one sessions and small group calls. 

      I highly recommend this program to anyone who would like to facilitate plant medicine sessions."

      —Leti Passemier, co-founder of Global Alliance of Psilocybin Practitioners, France

      By Emily W for SOLD OUT: Trauma-Informed Plant Medicine Facilitation Program 2023 on Jun 26, 2023
      The TIPMT with Atira was an amazing training and experience. Atira and her team created an absolute safe and comforting space for us where we could learn with each others, waving beautiful connections between students and even tho its been an online training it felt very personal to me. Atira makes sure everyone is seen and heard. She is a fantastic teacher, sharing her immense knowledge in such a beautiful way and answering any questions that come up. I've been looking for a Trauma education course for a while and finally decided to go with this one - and it could not have been a better choice! The tools and techniques are so valuable to me and applying them in practice already shows me how worthy they are. I'm deeply grateful for the teachings and i would recommend this training to anyone working with PM and wanting to build a deeper skillset on traumacare and how to create a safer space for clients and facilitators. Again, thank you so much! Ahó!
