This unique one-day ketamine-assisted IFS day-retreat is partly for personal growth and partly for learning about ketamine as a professional healer.
Ketamine has a powerful ability to relax the parts of you that may be afraid of being taken over by exiles, the parts of us that carry experiences of pain, terror, or shock.
Having a clear, calm, and compassionate encounter with our exiles can relieve the burdens of fear that our protective parts carry, allowing you to flow through life with more ease, more energy, and courage. This, of course, is the normal flow of IFS therapy, which Ketamine seems to unlock often spontaneously, but more certainly with loving support and encouragement of others.
In IFS work, we say “all parts of your parts are welcome.” Similarly, all participants are welcome, regardless of your level of training in IFS therapy.
Richard Schwartz, the creator of IFS therapy, says he believes that ketamine seems to allow Self to expand exponentially, allowing us to re-orientate ourselves to what is genuinely true in our life. Our group process in our short time together allows each of us in the room to act as “Self Mirrors:” Each of us will reflect back to each other the qualities of Self as we navigate our inner experiences: Clarity, connection, curiosity, compassion, courage, calm, confidence, creativity.
Registration and Participation are limited to professionals in a related licensed field, including psychotherapists, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, physicians, etc.
Space is very limited since we only have room for 6 people. If you reserved your spot in the group by completing the Interest List form, you will be given 48 hours to register before your spot may be given to someone else.
