The Psychedelic Society Of First Responders and Emergency Workers

The Psychedelic Society of First Responders and Emergency Workers is active and thriving on FaceBook!  Like and follow our page for first responders and emergency workers (i.e. paramedic, firefighter, police, military, nurse, doctor, crisis worker, counsellor, etc.) that use, or support the use of cannabis and psychedelics; for healing, or enhancing quality of life. This page is both for evidence-based education, harm reduction, and community support networks. Clinical research has shown that cannabis and psychedelics can be powerful tools for healing, when used correctly.

A growing number of first responders and emergency workers are using cannabis and psychedelics to explore who they are, prevent stress-related illness, or to heal from previous acute or accumulated trauma.  Join our psychedelic community if you work in a related field (or support those that do); and wish to connect, exchange information, and share experiences with others like you!

Click here to watch my lesson to First Responders on effectively managing patients who are experiencing acute psychosis or an emotional crisis.  I presented this as Continuing Medical Education for Paramedics in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  It outlines two intense calls that I attended where we were able to use psychological harm reduction and crisis intervention techniques to help patients experiencing two different forms of altered states.  These techniques prevented police from having to use lethal force, allowing us to get the best outcomes possible for the patients involved.  Feel free to use this information or the techniques I teach in your daily life to help others!

Flight Of Thoughts Episode 19 was recorded at Balsam Lake camp ground in Ontario, Canada. I share the most updated advice and information on preparing set/setting/intention, and managing a difficult psychedelic experience. These techniques also work on de-escalating emotional crisis or working through emotional trauma.
*
First, I talk about how to prepare for an effective psychedelic experience with proper set, setting, and intention behind it. I then go into how to manage the energy or “the fear” that comes on during the onset of psychedelic energy. If you can work through the difficult energy, it allows you to heal and re-process emotional trauma that usually takes years of therapy to relieve. Do your research and follow this harm reduction advice!
*
The second part of this episode discusses what it is like promoting psychedelic healing and research in downtown Toronto; despite the stigma and push back from some of the public. I recap my day at Kensington Market promoting the Psychedelic Society Of First Responders and Emergency Workers at a major market and breaking stigma through conversation.  Follow The Psychedelic Society of First Responders and Emergency Workers on Facebook to join the conversation, network, or exchange information on these topics!

This podcast is uncensored and covers many topics considered “taboo” or difficult for some individuals. We do not condone any illegal activities, as this is a platform for harm reduction and open-dialogue.  Although the ideas are mostly evidence-based and honest, the lines of reality and comedy may be blurred at times...this is your trigger warning!
