Discover the transformative potential of therapeutic "magic mushrooms"! Saba Cooperative's psilocybin facilitator training program has been approved by the Oregon Health Authority as meeting training requirements for facilitator licensure. It requires a total of 160 hours of instruction, which includes in-person training, online training, and practicum study.
The online training component consists of 60 hours of instruction, which provides students with flexibility in their learning and allows them to progress through the material at their own pace. It is anticipated that it will take approximately 4-6 months to complete. The online training includes articles, essays, lectures, videos, poems, demonstrations, quizzes, and writing assignments, providing a comprehensive exploration of the material. Furthermore, participants still have the opportunity to connect with instructors and others in their learning cohort, through sharing their writing assignments and providing feedback to others as they move through the course.
For those looking to complete the full Facilitator Training Program, additional requirements include an in-person residency and a practicum. The in-person training component consists of 60-hours of immersive learning with experienced facilitators and students. This portion of the training includes group activities, interactive discussions, and other experiential learning opportunities, allowing students to develop their skills and knowledge in a collaborative and supportive environment. This all takes place during either a 7-day full-day (8-8) intensive or a 10-day half-day (9-4) residency. Additional costs and interviews are involved with enrollment in this advanced program.
Lastly, the 40-hour practicum component allows students to deepen their understanding of the material and apply their knowledge in practical ways. Students will have access to resources and support to facilitate their learning and ensure they are meeting the requirements of the program. Additional costs may be involved with practicum transportation and accommodations and each person's practicum and supervision plan is designed uniquely.
