The Women of Ketamine: A Conversation with Leading Female CliniciansJun 30, 2023
This series of conversations came out of the K-Dome, a virtual camp within this year’s Multiverse, Burning Man’s digital landscape. I collaborated with my mentor Dr. Phil Wolfson and the Ketamine Research Foundation with its Indra’s Net Coalition to put together over 90 hours of content on psychedelic medicine. I will be sharing some of my favorite hours with you here, and I hope you enjoy them all.
In this conversation, you will hear from some of the leading female clinicians working with ketamine assisted psychotherapy. Facilitated by Sunny Strasburg LMFT, this panel includes Gita Vaid MD, Jennifer Dore MD, Julane Andries LMFT, Marcela Ot’alora LPC, Melissa Whippo LCSW, Monica Winsor, Veronika Gold LMFT and yours truly.
What You Will Learn:
The challenges and benefits of being a woman in psychedelic medicine
The unique and powerful properties of ketamine; why it’s great for beginners and can also be as profound as entheogens like ayahuasca and DMT
How ketamine has a uniquely clean morphogenic field
The importance of operationalizing feminine values of inclusivity, caring, humility in the larger space of psychedelic medicine
Why offering more feminine protocols (ie: somatic and slow) in psychedelic therapy may offer unique benefits in the healing space
