Here’s what we’ll cover 

In The Psychedelics For Beginners Free Online Course

module 1


“When we live a life closer in alignment to our values, we frequently feel happier, more satisfied, and more energetic. When we act and behave in ways that are not in alignment with our values, we can feel stressed out, uneasy, and unhappy.”

The first module, Mindset, was carefully designed by Tim Sinnett, an Integrative Transformational Life Coach and Psychedelics facilitator. This module will equip you with a deeper understanding of yourself before beginning your journey with plant medicine and psychedelics.  Understand what is most important to you at this point in your life, align with your true values, and set yourself up for successful outcomes.

In this module you will: 

  • Determine whether psychedelics are appropriate for you
  • Define your core values and primary goals
  • Create the appropriate mindset to step forward in achieving those goals
module 2


“No matter which medicine you choose, they are all going to open you up into altered and expanded states of consciousness. Lots of thoughts, ideas, memories, and experiences can unfold in these realms, some of which may be entirely new to you.”

This wonderful module dives into the various compounds one typically expects to journey with. Created by seasoned Transformational Coach, Troy Mcfadden, it is designed to enable you to choose what kind of psychedelic is best for you.

In this module you will: 

  • Determine which psychedelic you should journey with

“Trust that if you have set your intention, the learnings that arise in the journey may not be what you expected, but they will be what is necessary for you as you continue your healing journey.”

In this module, Fola Veritas, a Psychiatric Nurse, Reiki Master Teacher & Shamanic Practitioner, dives into the preparation for your psychedelic journey. You’ll understand what is necessary in order to create the perfect space for your psychedelic journey.

  • why preparation is necessary for a journey,
  • what set & setting have to do with your experience
  • how to go about setting an intention prior to entering the psychedelic space.
module 4


“As we become more centered, aware, and expanded, we can take more conscious actions, however small and subtle they might be, into more and more of the circumstances, relationships, and moments of our life.”

This module is designed to help truly evolve and level-up your psychedelic experience. Through the powerful practice of integration, novice and experienced individuals alike  can truly change their lives for the better with daily mindful techniques.  In this module created by Troy Mcfadden, you will:

What People are Saying about our BONFIRE Community!

“This is like a gym membership, but for the soul”

Montreal, Canada

“My first session was very good. I did not expect to have such a good connection. It was really a very special space to share our experiences, and find a real human connection in this container. I'm looking forward to the next one and to getting more involved in the community.”

Tomas P.

“I joined Bonfire with the aim to learn about best practices for Psychedelic Therapy and personal growth. I found within our very first meeting not only competent people, but the most warm, passionate and ethical souls to share wisdom, experience and learning with. Cannot wait for our next meeting and the next module!”

Dr. Madelein Walker
South Africa

“Hearing about the group's experiences makes this work feel safer. My friends and family know about my work with altered states but I don’t discuss it with them. It helps me feel more normal about it”


“I've felt comfortable enough to share things here that I haven't shared with anyone else.”
