What you will learn

  • Course Summary

  • This program will explore the current limitations and narrowness of the current paradigm in psychiatry. Recent innovations point psychiatry towards both a more realistic neuroscience, increasing respect for the body and a reasonable allowance for the psyche and soul. Combining elements like gut science, nutrition, neurofeedback, cognitive training, psychedelics, ketamine, music and ritual can usher in a new era in which body, mind and spirit work together for full expression of our human potential.
    By the end of this course, learners will be able to:

    • Review the current limitations of modern psychiatry
    • Describe the basic science and clinical benefits of neurofeedback
    • State the brain science behind the power of psychedelics

Course includes:

  • Video recording
  • Downloadable audio
  • Speaker handout(s)
  • 1 Quiz
  • Certificate of Completion
