Upcoming Events

Here at The Third Wave, we plan to contribute to this new era by providing reliable, well-researched information about psychedelics; incubating online and in-person psychedelic community; and working within mainstream culture through constructive conversations with thought-leaders across all major fields and disciplines.

This 5-part workshop series is geared toward providing a foundation for understanding the psychopharmacology and clinical research of the most commonly encountered psychedelic compounds as well as practical information for safe psychedelic use. The series is designed to build upon knowledge gained in previous installments so is recommended to attend them all for an optimal learning experience. Seating is limited so sign up today!

October 24: Psychedelics & Psychotropics: Mechanisms of Drug Interaction

The fifth and last installment in this series will focus exclusively on the potential for drug interactions between psychedelics discussed in installments I–IV and other medications or supplements people may be using. While the aim is to cover a broad range of possible interactions, a focus will be placed on interactions with traditional psychotropics including antidepressants, benzodiazepines, stimulants, and antipsychotics. It is recommended to attend installments I–IV to allow for optimal understanding of materials covered in this installment.

After decades of stalled progress, a new wave of clinical research involving psychedelic compounds shows promising results for treating depression, addiction, PTSD, and other mental health conditions.

MDMA is at the forefront of this psychiatric research; A multinational clinical trial of MDMA-assisted treatment for PTSD is currently underway in Canada, the US, and Israel. Sponsored by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), this research holds the potential to make MDMA available to the public as a medicine for use in conjunction with psychotherapy by 2023, revolutionizing treatment for one of humanity’s most debilitating forms of suffering.

ENCOUNTERING THE NUMINOUS 2019
November 16–November 17, 2019

ENCOUNTERING THE NUMINOUS: EXPANDED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS, DEPTH PSYCHOTHERAPY, ANALYSIS AND PSYCHEDELICS

 

Ground-breaking research into the use of psychedelics has shown great therapeutic potential for the treatment of difficult conditions such as PTSD, end-of-life anxiety and other conditions. This “psychedelic renaissance” has also opened up new vistas of possibility for healthy individuals engaging with the ordinary challenges of daily life yet longing for greater spiritual depth and meaning. What has emerged is the recognition that the healing potential comes not from the drug alone, but from the powerful numinous experiences that often emerge from these expanded states of consciousness — occurring within the context of a secure relationship with a therapist/guide in a contained setting. We will be exploring how a depth psychological perspective has been incorporated into current FDA-approved clinical trials targeting those struggling with hard-to-treat conditions. Leading with a strong clinical focus, we will explore the possibilities inherent in this work as well as the potential hazards and difficulties that may emerge. Issues related to transcendence, the nature of consciousness, unconscious transference and counter-transference, shadow material, and the relationship between the ego, Self and numinous experiences will be discussed.
