About the event

One of the greatest obstacles to joy and happiness–not to mention a positive psychedelic experience–is the inner-critic. It is a force to be reckoned with. Harsh thoughts, self-criticism, self-loathing and other eroding energies can be magnified by powerful psychedelic substances.

In this workshop, Insight meditation practitioner Guillaume Caron will facilitate experiential learnings and "consciousness skills" with the aim of making psychedelic journeys safer, deeper, and more rewarding. Specifically, he will teach you time-tested mindfulness practices to tame the inner critic both during and outside of journeying.

Mindfulness practice is an invitation to deal skillfully with the inner-critic before it shows up on steroids to ruin the party. By practicing clear seeing and loving awareness, we are able to conjure the power of the heart in the face of self-criticism. One walks the psychedelic path with both sword and shield: cutting through the spell of identification, protected from the demeaning voices of our psyche.

This workshop, a continuation of BPS’ event series, “Psychedelic Practices,” offers reflections, guided meditations, Q&A, journaling, relational practices in break-out groups, and a sharing circle. Together we will explore the power of mindfulness practice for anyone on the psychedelic path.

We hope you can join us! BPS members get 20% off this and all events. To become a member, please visit our membership page.

---------------------------------

Guillaume Caron’s greatest teachers are the challenges and wonders of his own life: balancing artistic aspirations with the necessity to make a living, striving for a healthy lifestyle in a massive urban center, and adapting to a non-native culture and language while remaining authentic.

Guillaume started practicing meditation in 2014 at New York Insight where he was exposed to a vast array of teaching styles and ways of relating to the Dharma. While rooted in Theravada Buddhism, Guillaume has been exploring other traditions of awakening and modalities of healing such as non-violent communication, inner child awareness, and plant medicine ceremonies.
