Paul is an experienced traveler of inner space working with psychedelics, Jungian therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Rosen Method bodywork, Family Constellations, Medicine Dance, and more, to support his own continued growth and healing. When he was a teenage recreational user of psychedelics, he was the go-to person when others were having difficult experiences. Paul appreciates the dedication and time required for lasting changes that lead to being more fully present and able to hold safe, non-judgemental, and compassionate space for oneself and others.
Paul is very active in the Los Angeles psychedelic community: an integration circle facilitator at Psychedelic Experience Integration: Psychedelia, an active member of the Los Angeles Medicinal Plant Society (LAMPS), the Aware Project, was one of the producers of the 2 day Los Angeles Psychedelic Science Symposium held in June of 2018 at UCLA (now working on the the next one for 2020) and is the Communications Director for Decriminalize California, working to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms in 2020. He is thoughtful and brings a clear headed sensibility to working with psychedelics that is practical and ceremonial as well as open minded and allowing of the many mysteries that surround this work.
Paul values continuing education and is currently enrolled in:
Gabor Maté’s Compassionate Inquiry practitioner training
Rosen Bodywork practitioner training / Rosen Method Berkeley Center
Applying the Polyvagal Theory / Psychotherapy Networker
Paul is also a sailor and mindful ecstatic dancer
Trust, let go, breathe, surrender!
