MIND Integration Facilitator Training

What is the MIND Integration Facilitator Training ?

We offer the MIND Integration Facilitator Training for those who have participated in BEYOND EXPERIENCE (BE) and FOOTSTEPS and want to bring the integrative approach to the psychedelic experience into the world. With your help, we want to build a culture of integration that uses psychedelic experiences as a tool for personal and societal development. Our goal as a team is to build a network of facilitators that can make BE and FOOTSTEPS 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. You will benefit from our long hours of intensive preparation and years of expertise with altered states of consciousness and training as BEYOND and FOOTSTEPS facilitators.

What is BEYOND EXPERIENCE?

BEYOND EXPERIENCE (BE) is a 4-day intensive workshop that guides participants through all aspects of psychedelic integration, while being supported by an intense group process. It is both for everybody and for mental health professionals seeking to learn about themselves and their experiences. The course’s main goal is to engage in a deep integration process and help you remember, express, and consciously connect with your psychedelic experiences to create meaningful change. A group of professional practicioners worked together for over three years to distill a program that covers the diverse aspects of the psychedelic experience as a tool for self-development.

What is FOOTSTEPS?

Footsteps is a 6-week online group process (3-4 h per week). Participants explore one of their previous psychedelic experiences in-depth. The main goal of the courseis to understand how psychedelic experiences can play a beneficial role in one’s life. Throughout the course, participants are guided through a process of transforming avoidance into acceptance. They begin to create awareness of their biographical patterns and are encouraged to use their psychedelic experience as a springboard for positive action and real-life change.

Training Program Dates

There are two Facilitator trainings in 2022. A 3-day training (September 16-18, 2022), and a 2-day training for very experienced facilitators and professionals (October 18-19, 2022). The training program focuses on the training manuals and the associated techniques you need as a professional integration facilitator.

The 3-day-training* is followed by a supervised co-facilitation in BEYOND EXPERIENCE (BE) workshops and FOOTSTEPS online courses. This facilitation happens alongside the core team members and includes mentorship by one of the core team. You can freely choose the BEYOND workshops or FOOTSTEPS courses for your co-facilitation.

*or 2-day training, if you participate in the training for very experienced facilitators and professionals

Program Quality, Adherence and Ethical Standards

The right to independent facilitation of BE or FOOTSTEPS is not automatically acquired through participation in the facilitator training but must be explicitly granted by the MIND Foundation through a MIND Integration facilitator certificate. Certification requires the personal and professional maturity of the applicant, as well as sufficient skill and understanding in handling integrative processes and the psychedelic experience.

All copyrights for BEYOND EXPERIENCE and FOOTSTEPS stay with the MIND Foundation, and all courses held externally have to be registered on the MIND website. Changes in pricing and relevant changes in the workshop implementation need to be agreed upon with the MIND team.

In cases of serious infringements of the MIND Code of Conduct or relevant actions against the spirit of MIND´s Integration Program, the right to facilitate BEYOND EXPERIENCE and FOOTSTEPS can be withdrawn by the MIND Foundation.
