Manuela Mischke-Reeds (faculty at Hakomi Institute) and Joshua Sylvae, PhD (faculty at Somatic Experiencing International) will join together to discuss the burgeoning field of psychedelic-assisted therapy. Including a somatic focus in this work—as well as recognizing the importance of therapists, guides, and sitters being prepared for the possible emergence of trauma—will be discussed. The presenters will report some of their own observations, including reflections on their work supporting the integration of psychedelic experiences with their clients. They will detail the contributions Hakomi and SE can make to successful work with psychedelics, emphasizing how to ground expanded states of consciousness in the body and support access to the here-and-now through the felt sense. Experiential exercises useful for the preparation and integration phases of this work will be introduced for attendees, and a space for Q&A created at the end of the presentation.
