Welcome to Wounded Healers Institute Training Admissions!

Are you someone who is looking for direction and understanding in life both personally and professionally? Do you wish to gain foundational knowledge on universal healing to establish yourself as a modern professional Healer? 

Are you someone who is willing to actually follow the evidence of modern research? Are you hoping to improve your knowledge on what it means to be a trauma therapist, learn to work psychedelic medicine into your life, approach, and practice? Looking to learn how to utilize therapeutic dissociation, or use enhanced bracketing research techniques to develop your researcher mind? Are you looking to learn more about trauma, dissociation, and the Addiction as Dissociation Model (ADM) and The Path of the Wounded Healer (PWH)? Well, this is the place to start or restart your wounded healer journey…

Our admissions process is for anyone looking to gain the recognition of being a Healer. In the Wounded Healer’s educational program, we are educating and training on how to utilize psychedelic medicines into your existing practice or establish yourself as a modern Healer. The definition of this has been illusive throughout human history but it is now time to reclaim this title. 

1) Application: HERE

2) You will be asked to write an essay/artwork/video on your wounded Healer Journey to this point… Upon submission, you will get a invoice for step 3.

3) Pay $500.00 for 2-hour MASA Interview with Dr. Adam (Required for Path of the Wounded Healer)(***Not needed for those who hold valid Professional Licenses)

4) Upon acceptance, we will contact you with further details. Acceptance is dependent on your reeducation needs.

Our educational program walks you through the basics of becoming a professional Healer, which is supported by our research-focused Addiction as Dissociation Model (ADM). We also provide training in the Path of the Wounded Healer (PWH) which is experiential, embodying, and empowering! We are teaching how to utilize psychedelics, meditation, and wellness principles to support psychedelic integration and trauma healing. 

We teach the Meeting Area Screening and Assessment (MASA), trauma resolution methods with meditation and healing audio companions, to help build resiliency with our Principles of Conditioning. We train in therapeutic dissociation with Mindful Dissociation and help all participants learn and master memory reconsolidation for developmental trauma, normative dissociation, and universal addictions. At our more advanced paths, we explore our Enhanced Bracketing Techniques to help enhance your performance. 

Our mottos are “Doctor, heal thyself… and we are willing to take you with us” or “Take it to the medicine” or “Take it to the meeting area”. We see that “The collective unconscious is our teacher” and “We are addicted to creating balance in the world.” “We are here to bring you back to now.” “At the end of the day, we are also educating on how to die.”

Our elevator pitch is: “We are a mental health gym and spa” or the longer version “We are a mental health gym that supports people in healing their developmental traumas, normative dissociation, and universal addictions. We educate on our model to help you strengthen your resolve and to keep you the best provider you can be.

Through discourse, self-work, regulation, and preventative regulation measures, we help you solidify the Wounded Healer that you are or were meant to become. We help you develop and sharpen your therapeutic dissociation skills by creating a qualitative learning environment to let you explore consciousness and unconsciousness with cannabis products, meditation, breathwork, and creative expression. We educate on navigating dissociative states or altered states of consciousness and how to activate innate states of healing. All human beings have access to these healing states. 

We typically have 3 categories of people who are contacting us…

1) For people who are looking for ongoing psycho-education on the Addiction as Dissociation Model (ADM) to satisfy their personal or professional curiosity, we offer our FREE ADM introductory class HERE. We will also be offering workshops and online classes, or we can create a personalized and individualized educational path for you (1:1 education). These educational services are usually for parents, caretakers, organizations, communities, professionals from other disciplines, or informed citizens looking to understand our stance on addiction, why it is important, and how to implement the solutions into your life.
