In recent times, there has been an increase of boundary violations (physical, sexual, emotional, psychological and spiritual) occurring in plant medicine ceremonies due to the lack of healthy facilitation boundaries. Psychedelic experiences can open up the psyches of individuals, making participants more susceptible to influences.

Healthy boundaries, and being able to safeguard the psychic space of a ceremony can mitigate the impact of negative, unhelpful and at times, harmful suggestions, conversations, or energies.

This trauma-informed masterclass focuses on sharing tips and tools for plant medicine facilitators to uphold healthy boundaries, as well as the pivotal role of ‘spirit-centred’ protection with facilitating psychedelic sessions.

In this self-paced 90 mins. masterclass, Trina and Atira share an essential understanding of a ‘spirit-centred’ framework, providing you with strategies and tools to create a safe and secure environment conducive to positive therapeutic outcomes, with a focus on protection for all involved.

Joining Atira as a guest is Trina Lucas, a Traditional Chinese Medicine Specialist, founder of The Spiritual Healing Sanctuary, and a one-to-one spiritual healor and mentor. Trina is a passionate advocate of placing spirit at the centre of health and wellness and has spent over 26 years running her Spiritual Healing Practice in Melbourne, Australia.

“This trauma-informed plant medicine facilitation course has put language and science to the most important aspects of my work in ways I never could. This training empowered me to create safer, more integrated, and more compassionate healing containers for myself, the healers I work with, and of course our participants. I now feel that anyone working to facilitate healing of any kind should be trauma-informed as a foundational part of their approach. In fact, as we face the mounting challenges of today’s world, I feel we can’t afford to be.”

– Lara Charlotte, Co-Founder of Garden of Dreams, New Zealand.

“I cannot recommend this training enough for anyone working in the plant medicine space; whether you are pouring medicine, a supporter/facilitator, a pre or post-ceremonial integration specialist, or even a student of the plants. I strongly feel that this training should be the basic foundational training (alongside 1st Aid) for all healers and support plant medicine staff.
Atira is an excellent bridge and guides into the intersectional realms of plant medicine and trauma therapy.”



Trauma-informed ‘Spirit Centred’ facilitation taps into an essential structure in your energy body called the “Source Connection Channel”.

Activation of this channel ensures the practitioner of spirit medicine can adequately call their spirit to the forefront of their body in order to (1) meet in intimacy and safety with the spirit of the earth as it is expressed in the energetic properties of the medicinal plant, and (2) ensure the spirit of the client is called in service to meet and guide receptivity of the medicine.

The pathway to deep and sustained personal transformation often requires challenging stubborn and powerful blocks of unseen lower vibrational energy to emerge for clearing. Such energies can inadvertently complicate the therapeutic process.

Spirit is the most intelligent force available to us all when it comes to gracefully navigating these well-established patterns in need of transformational change.

Safeguarding Trauma-informed ‘spirit centred’ Psychedelic Sessions is therefore essential for facilitation, and our 90 mins. self-paced masterclass covers the following topics:

1. Spirit Connection: Discovering why and how to synergise and centre the spirit of the client, the earth, the plant medicine and the facilitator in practice.

2. Protection of Client, Facilitator, and the Therapeutic Relationship: Emphasizing the importance of putting ‘spirit first’ to safeguard the therapeutic journey.

3. Navigating the Spirit Realms: A framework for understanding the interconnectedness of spirit, soul, the universe, earth and humanity with an emphasis on the power of the client as a co-creator of their reality.

4. Anatomy of the Source Connection Channel: Examining the structure, function, and importance of this channel in the practice of ‘spirit-centred’ medicine.

5. Spiritual Hygiene Fundamentals: Introducing practices to maintain balance and integration between your spirit, soul, human, and earthly realities within you as the facilitator.

6. Powerful Activation: of the Source Connection Channel that you can return to over and over.

7. A Simple Tool: for maintaining the health of your Source Connection Channel.

8. How Spirit Heals: An essential yet simple understanding of what is consciousness and how human and spirit consciousness differ.

9. Understanding and Dealing with Lower Vibrational Energies: Recognizing and addressing the challenges posed by these energies in the therapeutic process.

By incorporating trauma-informed ‘spirit centred’ principles into facilitation, you will understand how you as a facilitator can work within a bigger picture framework of relationships between spirit, earth, humanity and the greater material universe.

Our 90 mins. Self-Paced Trauma-Informed Plant Medicine Masterclass provides bite-sized tools and resources for facilitators to cultivate their trauma sensitivity and develop an awareness of ‘spirit centred’ principles of facilitation.

“Participating in this training gave me profound insight into what I’m doing as a ceremony guide and integration & microdosing coach, illuminating areas where I can grow, and strengthen & expanding my toolbox of resources, practices, processes, protocols, and tools I already have, to be able to support people in their healing journeys even better.

Atira carries a strong and very clear vision of the importance of having a trauma-informed approach and awareness when working in this rapidly growing field of plant medicine & psychedelic-assisted therapies. Being in her presence and receiving her teachings was super inspiring and motivating to keep showing up for this special and very much-needed work.”

– JUAN MANUEL BURGOS, Microdosing & Integration Coach, Argentina.

This program’s deep dive into the realms of living impeccable service has been nothing short of life-changing.

I remembered so much about the nervous system, about my life, about my purpose, about the bridges between paradigms and the collective trauma on the Earth. I was deeply warmed, inspired, challenged, and excited by the entire experience.

Atira transmits genuine, care, curiosity, understanding, and expertise. She is devoted to providing safe spaces for people to heal and her life’s work is a testimony to her wisdom. This body of work is a must for all.”

What a life-changing experience. This training is a true treasure of knowledge and wisdom and shared with a caring and loving presence.

The depth of insights into a variety of tools to create safer spaces is the most I have ever experienced in any training. However, besides the theoretical teachings, what touched me the most was how the space was held in such safety and care and naturally became the soil for our personal softening into the journey.

And with that, we were able to truly experience the effect of a teacher who fully embodies what she teaches. And that is a priceless gift I will benefit from for the rest of my life.”

I highly recommend this course/workshop, not only to those who are interested in the relationship between trauma and plant medicine but anyone who is curious about understanding human relational patterns to self and society. Atira shares in-depth knowledge and expertise of trauma studies and this work is much needed in the world.”
