Tahoe Psychedelic Society

seeks to demystify the science and destigmatize the exploration of non-ordinary states for mental health.  

We host events, share knowledge, and welcome all to intentionally explore the possibilities of altered states of consciousness.  We support harm reduction efforts, psychedelic decriminalization, and open dialogue about altered states.

LGBTQIA+ Veteran Retreat: Male-Identifying Participants Needed

Heroic Hearts Project is excited to announce its inaugural special program for the LGBTQIA+ Veteran Community. The first cohort will attend a retreat in March 2024, and the second cohort will attend in June.

We need 5 male-identifying participants for the June retreat.

This 7-week program will consist of professional group and individual preparation and integration sessions and an 8-day/7-night plant medicine retreat in Central Mexico, augmented with a population-specific psycho-education training module, specialized movement and meditation instruction, and..waterfalls, which--in our book--rank highly among nature's greatest medicines.

LGBTQIA+ Veterans often faced unique challenges throughout their time in service, ranging from suppression of Self to targeted physical or sexual assault, bullying, name-calling, dehumanization, and even officially sanctioned punitive actions via the UCMJ. Even those who may have seemed to have completed their service "unscathed" still had to live a life where they pledged to honor, serve, and support an organization that regularly reminded them (through actions, words, and deeds) how

"wrong" or "messed up" they were because their sexual expression was beyond the accepted norm. Heroic Hearts will be creating a safe space and dedicating a program to contribute to the healing journey of veterans who survived these struggles.

If you are a veteran who identifies as LGBTQIA+ and you would like to join a group of like individuals in a program designed to address your unique military traumas, then we invite you to submit your application via the Heroic Hearts Project website: https:// heroicheartsproject.org/veteran-programs/

Please be sure to click "LGBTQIA+" under the Special Populations tab in the application to ensure your application lands in the right inbox!

*Note: As with all HHP Special Population Programs, the LGBTQIA + Program will not focus solely on LGBTQIA+ military
