Each week they will rotate leading different types of workshops:
➡️One week Courtney leads the group through authentic relating activities that allow you to practice communicating feelings and needs with courage and ease.

"In my previous experiences, I didn't do anything so it was easier for it to slip away as time passed. Coaching and attending Psanctuary helped me realize the importance of continuous practice and the need for community in order to reap the full benefits."
Courtney Leads Authentic Relating Workshops Every Other Week
After a sacred mushroom experience, we are often left feeling opened up and not sure how to communicate all of these new feelings and perspectives with others. Authentic relating activities give us a safe and simple format to do just that. These practices are a collection of extensively tested and facilitator-led experiences that give participants a hands-on taste of both the joy and skills of interpersonal connection.
See an example below of Courtney leading Eric through an Authentic Relating Activity we call “Noticing”. This is not choreographed folks; going into this Psilocybin Says podcast episode they had planned to focus on a completely different topic, but Eric was in a really low place and that wasn't feeling in the flow.
They decided to pay attention to what was there and show you all what it sounds like to move through and transmute feelings within an authentic relating container.
"I enjoyed the weekly group zoom sessions and the authentic conversations we had. I liked looking at myself in a new and different way."

5 Principles We Come Back To During These Workshops:
1) Welcome Everything: We welcome all of the emotions on the human spectrum. This is not a place to feel like you need to put your happy and face on and pretend you’re feeling something you’re not.
2) Assume Nothing: Our human brain is wired to categorize and put things in boxes which helps us survive in the world in our bodies. I see you behind the wheel of the car so I assume you are driving. When we do this with emotions in relationships when we assume without getting clarifications someone is feeling a certain way we can create a blockage.
3) Revel Your Experience: We are taught that it’s very vulnerable to show what goes on in the inside. We are taught to keep a poker face and act professionally so no one knows we’re hurt or bothered. Here we reveal our experience and the more vulnerable and raw, the better. It's only when we reveal our true feelings that others can authentically relate to this experience.
4) Own Your Experience: When we feel negative or low vibration emotions (shame, sadness, anger) we can feel bad about feeling them. Our belief is that every emotion is valid. If we feel it then it’s ok to be feeling it. You have the right to your subjective feeling and experience.
5) Honor Your Self and the Other: If you feel in an interaction or activity that you need to step away for a moment for some space or alone time to breathe, honor that. If there is someone else that feels an emotion in response to that, that’s ok. This is all about discovering what’s really happening in the moment and practicing setting the intention for the discovery and the context of sharing.
