The Emerging World of Psychedelics and Plant Medicine

Current research with psychedelics is yielding promising results in the treatment of trauma, end of life anxiety, depression and addiction. All indications are that psychedelics (as they are known today) will be legally available for use, balanced for both risk and benefit. 

However, serious negative effects are documented form illegal and recreational use of psychedelics. This is especially true for people with pre-existing mental health challenges or at-risk members of our society. We are advocates of the healing potential that psychedelics can have in legal therapeutic and ceremonial settings.  To learn more regarding the research and advances towards the legalization of psychedelics in Canada, we recommend following MAPS Canada.

Do we prescribe or administer psychedelics?

No. We do not refer our clients to any illegal sources to do so. 

Can THERAPY help with non-ordinary states?

Yes. Therapy can include somatic therapy, hypnotherapy, art therapy, mindfulness techniques, as examples. We take a harm reduction approach to promote education and safety in all non-ordinary states. We offer a safe, confidential space to process, explore, and share challenges and insights that may have happened in non-ordinary states and the potential for the personal transformation that they offer. This includes breathwork, meditation, indigenous ceremonial modalities, and plant medicine experiences, to name only a few non-ordinary states that you may want to explore in a session. 

Emerging Changes 

Due to the recent emergence of psychedelics, Wallace Murray & Associates are focusing on educational and training opportunities in psychedelic and plant medicine support and integration along with our continued learning into many other non-ordinary states. With the emergence of psychedelics and plant medicine as being a part of clinical healing modalities, we feel that increased focus on psychedelic harm reduction and psychedelic crisis response is the best way we can be of service to this emerging field at this time. 

As legislation in Canada is evolving and different jurisdictions allow for psychedelics, our future aim is to provide complex individual treatment plans in our Canadian partner wellness clinic as well as offer retreats in legal jurisdictions.
