Facilitator Training

These are extraordinary
times of rapid change.

WE ALL KNOW THAT Change is hard...

Millions of people are seeking out psychedelic and plant medicine experiences because they desire some form of change to take root in their lives. 

People seek inner change to more effectively adapt to a changing world.  

This is the era of REINVENTION.

You are here because you already KNOW the transformative potential of psychedelic medicines.

Psychedelics CATALYZE change, which means they INITIATE the process.

This is only the first part of the equation.

What I’ve learned over the past 25 years is that psychedelic journeys are SIGNIFICANTLY more effective in supporting the change we desire when held within a FRAMEWORK that specifically supports personal growth and transformation.  

Welcome to:

On the Psychedelic Path

What is Transilience?

tran·​sil·​ience (noun)

The word “Transilience” was traditionally used to describe “a leap of change or transition” – and in the process of leaping, we evolve from one state to another. 

(The word “Transilience” is rarely used anymore…
but it seriously deserves a comeback.)

About The Program

Even though the majority of attention (and training programs) are focused on psychedelics and mental illness – for good reason – this group constitutes a much smaller percentage compared to the vast majority of people seeking out psychedelics for more psycho-spiritual purposes. 

We are moving through an unprecedented collective transition right now. We know the old way is not working, yet the new way forward is unclear and uncertain.

We are in the gap between two worlds, and a large percentage of people are experiencing what John Vervaeke calls the “Meaning Crisis.” 

LEARN TO SKILLFULLY SUPPORT People who are experiencing:
  • A lack of clarity, lack of direction & lack of support
  • A deeper questioning of their purpose and their path in life (what is this all for?)
  • Feelings of disconnection from themselves, from other people and from nature
  • Struggling with feelings of overwhelm & first signs of burnout
  • Chronic stress & transition fatigue
  • Low moods and bouts of mild depression
  • Repetitive internal narratives that keep them stuck
  • Unhealthy habits rooted in an old version of themselves they desire to change

What Makes the Transilience Framework Unique?

A different starting point
Instead of working with psychedelics to:
REDUCE mental illness...
Transilience focuses oN ENHANCING human flourishing.

The psychedelic experience teaches us the very same skillsets and mindsets we need to thrive during times of change. They are helping us to:

  • Adapt & stay flexible amongst an increasingly complex and volatile world
  • Foster emotional, mental and physical resilience
  • Enhance creativity (on every level)
  • Realign with what we care about, and a deeper sense of meaning and purpose.
  • Reconnect to ourselves, each other and culitvate a more harmonious relationship with the Earth we live on
The 4 Foundational Pillars of Transilience

Why Creativity is Foundational to TRANSILIENCE

exploring psychedelics through A NEW LENS
The entire process of psychedelic transformation is by definition a creative process.

Creativity & transformation are 2 sides of the same coin. 

At the heart of the transformation process is our ability to hold a new vision for our lives and imagine that something else is possible.

Creativity requires telling a new story about who we are, and what we believe we’re capable of and shape a new sense of identity. This requires breaking free from conventional thinking, perceiving the world through a new lens and learning how to think more creatively…And this is exactly what psychedelics help us to do.

When we look at psychedelics and sacred plant medicines through the lens of creativity research, everything changes; our understanding of preparation and integration shifts, it changes how we think about set and setting, and it changes how we experience the journey itself, as well as the outcomes we aim for.  

It also informs the frameworks we build and the tools we use to support ourselves and others on the path of psychedelic transformation.

Ixchel Munay


Apply the Wisdom of the Medicine Wheel to Support Integration

Ixchel will share how to work with the shamanic medicine wheel as a framework for exploring the energetics of both the journey and integration.

Although the medicine wheel is a circle, in life we spiral through these archetypal energies meeting ourselves in a from a new place each time.

In the shamanic medicine wheel, we travel through the energies of the serpent, jaguar, hummingbird and eagle/condor. We will also look at how we can use different medicine wheels for deeper understanding of the cycles of life.

The serpent energy supports us to let go, let go of control and open the portal to the subconscious, the unseen and that which lies under the surface. Jaguar helps us meet and face our fears of the unknown and death, so that we may see like she does in the darkness with keen vision how we can liberate ourselves from the bondage of old beliefs, patterns, stories and traumas that are holding us back. By moving through this initiation, we are able to experience the beauty, joy and pure love of the hummingbird and become living embodiments of love. The eagle and the condor bring expanded perspective, a new vision for our lives and the world.

As we integrate these parts of our journey and our lives with the gnosis that everything is energy, we become the vibrational frequency of our vision for our lives as the embodiment of our truth.

Ixchel Munay is a mother, medicine woman, dancer, musician, spiritual midwife, mentor, permaculturist and eternal optimist.

Ixchel Munay is a community builder and cofounder of Yacumama Ecovillage and retreat center in Costa Rica and Chakya Muna artist community in Bali.

“30 years ago at the age of 15 psychedelics set me on the path of self discovery and I am humbly still learning.

For nearly 20 years Ayahuasca and Huachuma have been my greatest teachers. I have guided hundreds of people on the journey of ceremony and integration for more than a decade.

My life is dedicated to the liberation of all beings, to the remembrance of our divinity, to the embodiment of our full potential.”

David Henry Richanbach, MA


Psychedelic Cartography: Mapping the Self through Writing, A PRACTICE FOR PREPARATION & INTEGRATION

Mapping the Self through Writing is an invitation into the uncharted territories of your Body, Mind, Heart and Soul. With the written word as our vessel, and the integration of our medicine path as our North Star, we draw upon the great human tradition of mystical epistemology as our compass to navigate the waters of expanded awareness. By rolling up our sleeves, leaning into resistance and bringing pen to paper we uncover hidden facets, remember key insights, question unexamined beliefs, and aim to construct a more coherent worldview rich with optimism and beauty. This journey, while profoundly personal, promises to enrich your medicine work and strengthen your capacity to be in the heart of the conversations that aid our collective growth.

“David Henry Richanbach, affectionately known as DH or Henry, is a dedicated explorer of consciousness and a lifelong writer in the realm of psychedelic experiences. Completing his undergraduate studies at Evergreen State College in 2012, he engaged deeply with the mysteries of consciousness, dreams, storytelling, ayahuasca shamanism, and transformational festivals. Filling journal after journal with psychedelic insights, his academic work came alive with explorations of these expansive territories. Later, upon securing his MA in Psychological Studies from the California Institute of Integral Studies, he directed his lifelong passion for the written word towards serving his clients. His current endeavor revolves around guiding those engaged with psychedelics to navigate and record their journeys of expanded awareness, using writing as a critical tool for mining and sharing the precious insights unearthed during their explorations.”

Tara Divina

Creative Business Coach for Medicine Carriers & Mystical Healers

Burning in the fire of your own medicine (in order to serve it)

One of the most confronting things about becoming a medicine integration coach is that all of your most confronting challenges tend to surface as you rise up to serve others. This can easily make you feel unqualified to help them, but is actually a sign that you are the perfect person to do so. In this interactive training you will uncover the aspects of your medicine that you are most meant to transmit and embody, and deepen into your own practice of alchemizing your biggest challenges into your most powerful pillars of wisdom – for yourself and others.

Tara Divina draws on her experience as a Vice President at the Warner Music Group, professional medicine musician, clothing designer, and successful entrepreneur, to offer business & creative coaching for medicine carriers, mystical healers, and artists. 

She empowers them to prioritize their creative projects, build an organic fan base using authentic self expression, and generate a sustainable income using all of their gifts.

She is also tapped into karmic patterns, purpose and destiny through the lens of Vedic Astrology, and combines her gift of seeing the unseen with practical know how to help creatives get clear on their purpose and core message.

Metaphors, Minds and Models - Understanding the Psychedelic Experience & Navigating the Psychedelic Experience.

Talk #1 Metaphors, Minds and Models – Understanding the Psychedelic Experience.

How we explain what psychedelics do and how they work changes what happens when we take them. The stories we tell ourselves about our psychedelic journeys enable, or limit, our ability to successfully learn from those experiences. Join Julian Vayne for a deep dive into the swirling waters of psychedelic metaphor where we’ll encounter some hidden treasures from psychedelic research history as well as the latest ways to think about the meaning, message and action of psychedelics.

Talk #2 Navigating the Psychedelic Experience.
In this presentation we’ll be extensively exploring the issue of psychedelic dosage. How much to take? How can we combine psychedelic medicines? What are the key contraindications and where should we look for advice? We will also cover the ‘final flight instructions’. What are the methods that we can use to navigate the psychedelic experience ourselves and how can we teach these skills to support and empower others?
