Discover how you can safely, legally, and compassionately incorporate psychedelics into holistic clinical work to help clients achieve lasting health benefits and optimal clinical outcomes.

Learn how to integrate psilocybin-assisted services into your practice to foster profound and lasting healing in first responders and veterans.


Psilocybin stands out as a profoundly effective substance for addressing a variety of health issues. Its effectiveness in influencing complex biochemical pathways makes it a powerful tool for enhancing mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health, supporting the body’s natural processes to improve overall wellness.

Whether clients are navigating the challenges of chronic conditions, traumatic brain injuries, neurological issues, ADHD, or hormonal imbalances...

... or are seeking to maintain general health and wellness so they can improve their longevity and age gracefully...

... incorporating psilocybin-assisted sessions into an existing holistic health practice can offer clients a powerful and complementary healing modality.

Join us for an enlightening workshop featuring clinical herbalist Prema Sagara, LPF. This pioneer at the vanguard of the psychedelic movement has incorporated psilocybin into his healing practices...

... and is now applying his insights in legal states, ready to share his wisdom about how you may be able to integrate plant medicine into your own holistic healing practice.

During this eye-opening hour, you’ll hear about natural substances that can be used synergistically with psilocybin to enhance client outcomes...

... and discover how to take clients’ health histories into consideration to develop personalized dosing protocols.

You’ll also learn how, by working with psilocybin in a legal setting, you can guide clients through profound experiences that have the potential to reshape their understanding of self, heal deeply rooted traumas, and foster a greater sense of connection to the world around them.


In this illuminating free online event, you’ll:

  • Gain an understanding of how to harness the power of psilocybin to holistically address a clients’ health  spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically
  • Discover the biochemical pathways through which psilocybin works and how to combine it with other natural substances to enhance client outcomes
  • Learn how to tailor dosing protocols based on health history considerations
  • Explore the role of psilocybin in managing chronic conditions, neurological issues, and cognitive health issues, including its potential in optimizing neuroimmunology and its anti-inflammatory benefits
  • Understand how psilocybin can contribute to greater longevity and healthy aging

Adding psilocybin to your healing toolkit not only broadens the scope of tools available to you but also positions you at the forefront of a transformative shift in health care.

During the event, you’ll be the first to learn about our upcoming 6-month Psilocybin Guide Certification program.

This comprehensive program will equip you with the skills to safely guide others through psilocybin journeys, ensuring a supportive and enriching experience for your clients.

The Psilocybin Guide Certification begins April 24, 2024

What People Are Saying About Our Trainings...


“The lead trainers were incredibly knowledgeable...”

This training was comprehensive and well-thought-out. There are aspects of the training that I don’t think any other programs contain because of the depth of real experience that the faculty have. The lead trainers were incredibly knowledgeable, with years of practice that showed with every topic they presented on. This training was essential to me becoming a successful psychedelic guide.
Drew Snyder, LPC, NCC, Head of Psilocybin Practicums, IPI


“I particularly benefited from the synchronous training opportunities...”

For anyone considering this line of work, I highly recommend Bodhi Academy’s psilocybin guide training program. The collective skill sets, extensive lived experiences, and individual unique perspectives of the faculty members contribute to a program which is very comprehensive and inspiring. I particularly benefited from the synchronous training opportunities, where we were able to apply the skills we were learning in a live, simulated scenario with other students in the cohort. Rose [Moulin-Franco, the founder of Bodhi Academy,] consistently offered useful and insightful feedback on how to improve. I have no doubts that I am prepared to move forward in this work after completing this amazing program.
Goldie Harmon, RN


“... a well-rounded training that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed.”

The training content is rich and presented by those experienced in the field. There is a great mix of historical background and current research. All of this, combined with practical hands-on facilitation skills and a note to protect the sacred and mystical aspects, makes this a well-rounded training that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed.
Jenn Weiss, life coach and sound healer


“These are lessons you can take away and apply in your personal growth...”

I have enjoyed and benefited from my training at Bodhi Academy. I especially enjoyed the synchronous learning sessions. Studying and practicing with the other cohort students provided a collective synergy for spontaneous moments of genius to arise for both individuals and the group. The students always seemed surprised that so much real insight into our role-play scenarios was harvested. These are lessons you can take away and apply in your personal growth with real emotion informing deep insights. Tears, laughter, and awe were not uncommon in our synchronous classes. The deepening connection between students that occurred during our online sessions has affirmed and inspired me to continue to grow and to be of service to my fellow human companions on this epic journey of life as a certified psilocybin guide.
Ahva Lenay, community leader, Rhythm Sanctuary


“I feel very fortunate to be a part of this program!”

Bodhi Academy is the second psilocybin [guide] education program that I’ve attended and is, by far, a more rewarding experience. The curriculum is taught by a highly experienced professional staff and provides in-depth exploration of the numerous aspects of [guidance], including very enriching synchronous training role-playing exercises. The review quizzes at the end of each module greatly help to make sure key points and concepts are understood and retained as I progress through the coursework. My cohort is great and I feel very fortunate to be a part of this program!
