Why this course?

Deepen Your Practice and Learn to Support Others

We designed this course for those who are open-minded, humble and service-oriented. You have experienced the healing benefits of psychedelic medicines and want to support others on their journeys. You want to deepen your practice and understanding of how these medicines work on both facilitator and journeyer. Everyone, including experienced psychonauts and facilitators, benefit from being in community, listening to different perspectives, and practicing beginner’s mind.

Connect with a Community of Likeminded People

You will be invited to a private Signal Community and two public slack channels. During the workshops, there will be ample time for breakout rooms where you’ll meet and chat with others on similar journeys. You’ll be able to discuss psychedelics in a safe, stigma and judgment-free container. This course will allow you to feel more connected and supported.

Spend Time with Experienced Facilitators

Our facilitators have the collective experience of working with thousands of individuals on their psychedelic journeys. With your best interest at heart, they’ll do their best to instill confidence and self-reliance. You’ll have time to ask as many questions as you’d like.

🍄 Very eye-opening. Tremendously useful - especially if you're just beginning your psychedelic journey. - Nnamdissimo

🍄 I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in deepening (or just entering) their relationship with psilocybin. All the teachers are knowledgeable, humble and inspiring! Just getting to be in the same room with so many lovely people makes it worth it, let alone the hugely valuable information shared by all. I learned a huge amount and am excited to carry this knowledge forward and use it to be of service to all my relations. Thank you! - Nathan Maingard

🍄 I highly recommend a course by the Tripsitters team for anyone looking to grow their knowledge and/or relationships with nature and like-minded individuals. I eagerly await their next offering :) - Doug F

🍄 Education offered for use of sacred medicine in a good way. Thanks for changing the narrative on psilocybin! - Past participant

🍄 Excellent course offering so much more than the course description. The tutors are extremely knowledgeable and you will learn everything you need as an aspiring guide or journeyer: The psilocybin 101 course is comprehensive in content, offers knowledge gained from very experienced tutors and connects you with a community. - N Davies

🍄 The diversity of subjects and in-depth nature in which they followed every topic made this the perfect arena for newcomers to access information about Psilocybe mushrooms as medicine. The diversity of experience that the group has, as guides, sitters and therapists, made this a great avenue for people with previous knowledge of mushrooms as medicine, but carried one into new realms where we might not have been fortunate enough to stumble upon this important information on our own. To me, a win win situation for all who were fortunate enough to be involved! - Andy

🍄 Excellent introduction to psychedelics, led by very experienced guides and worthwhile for introductory or advanced review of psilocybin use. - David G Ostrow

Psilocybin 101

I’m happy to be a humble servant for the psilocybin mushrooms. Psilocybin has helped me heal from depression, addictive behavior patterns and low self-esteem issues. Since I started tripsitting, I have been blessed to witness and be part of the transformations of countless beings. My life is dedicated to sharing the medicine with anybody who feels called to experience the benefits of magic mushrooms.

I’ve experienced a magical transformation through the use of psilocybin, which has connected me with mother earth and higher consciousness. In my mind, mushrooms are the healers and I am just their grateful servant. My life mission is to create safe, caring, and loving environments where people can experience the healing powers of psilocybin. I speak French, Italian, and Spanish fluently.
