BEYOND EXPERIENCE (BE) was developed by a group of dedicated professionals and practitioners of altered states of consciousness. We worked together for over three years in order to distill a program that covers the diverse aspects of the psychedelic experience as a tool for self-development. A major aspect of this is integration. Integration is the art of having and maintaining meaningful psychedelic experiences with relevance and benefit for your life as a whole.

During this course, participants should acquire skills and knowledge about the process of integration. The focus is on using altered states of consciousness (ASC) to change aspects of one’s own life. The questions that are asked and the methods that are used are designed to establish a self-responsibility-based attitude towards such states.

For those who have participated in BEYOND EXPERIENCE and want to be part of the team, bringing the integrative approach to the psychedelic experience into the world, we offer the opportunity to benefit from our long hours of intensive preparation and years of expertise with altered states of consciousness and train as BE facilitators.

Training Program

The training program consists of a 4-day course with a focus on the training manual and the associated techniques, followed by a supervised co-facilitation in a BEYOND EXPERIENCE (BE) workshop. This facilitation happens alongside the core team members and includes mentorship by one of the BE core team.

Our goal as the BE team is to build a network of facilitators that can make BE available around the globe. We believe in the necessity to implement integration as a key concept for those who search for meaningful and wholesome psychedelic experiences.
