The practice of working with psychedelics for healing or spiritual purposes is not new.
Many indigenous traditions have used “sacred medicines” in ceremonial healing and
spiritual contexts for centuries and underground therapists have been working with
psychedelics in healing practices for decades. There are many different approaches and
medicines (and combinations of medicines) used in individual, group, couple and family
contexts. This manual is intended to be used by individuals who are assisting others to
experience substances such as LSD, Psilocybin, MDMA, 3-MMC, DMT, 5-MeO-DMT,
Ayahuasca and other psychedelics. It is intended to be a guide for therapists using
moderate to higher dosages of a psychedelic. It is not intended to offer guidance for
those who are involved in psycholytic therapy which is psychotherapy enhanced with a
low dose of a psychedelic.
The manual is written by Mark Haden of MAPS Canada.
