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!

For this episode Daniel Greig joins me to explore themes surrounding trauma, darkness, and the complexity of the human experience.  He teaches me how dark imagery fits in to human cognition and how altered states relate to healing.  Daniel discusses how he is writing a book with Dr. John Vervaeke about the journeys we take through our lives on gaining insight, remaining grounded, and the various pathways to enlightenment!  The book is called "The Cognitive Continuum: From Insight to Enlightenment".

Daniel is an educator, organizer and artist living in Toronto. He studied Cognitive Science and Philosophy at the University of Toronto, specializing in wisdom, consciousness, and spiritual belief and experience. In 2015, he founded the Mapping the Mind conference, which raises much needed funds for psychedelic research. Daniel regularly host lectures and workshops, on topics in cognitive science. He is currently writing a book with Dr. John Vervaeke on the science of enlightenment, which will be published in 2020. When not contemplating the realm of the intellect, Daniel delves in the sonic perturbations of music, writing and producing progressive metal.

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!
