The Psychedelic Integration Career Guide is a labor of love by Leia Friedman, Lorna Liana, and the EntheoNation editorial team. Leia and Lorna explore the evolving landscape of the Psychedelic Renaissance, with a shared inquiry - what does it take to a culture of safety, diversity, equity and inclusion so that that psychedelic healing is accessible to all?
