About Us

Our Scientific Approach to Psychedelic Therapy & Mental Health

Equanimity Wellness offers a holistic, scientific approach to psychedelic therapy and better mental health. Our mission is to deliver the most effective, empirically sound wellness methodologies known to science, to reduce unnecessary suffering in the world. The power of a psychedelic experience does not lie in the medicine, but rather, the therapeutic system within which it is grounded. Only with thorough preparation, careful attention to set and setting, a trusting therapeutic relationship and ongoing integration can we begin to tap the truly wondrous potential of psychedelic compounds. While psychedelics open a beautiful, neurological ‘window of opportunity’ in the brain, we provide the framework to transform this opportunity into meaningful and lasting change. Our team has drawn on decades of clinical experience to craft the journey of a lifetime, tailor-made to each client's personal biography, intentions and long-term mental health.

“Sitting, staring at the sun on top of the world on my last day after Yoga and meditation, crying tears of joy is one of the best feelings I've ever experienced in my life! Knowing that I was in a safe environment with incredible people that deeply care for my wellbeing allowed me the freedom to let go of my fears, my anxiety and perceived limitations. I was given a second chance at life and this is truly the greatest feeling in the world! I am extremely grateful to be part of this process.” | W.R.* *As a healthcare facility, we abide by patient confidentiality.

“My journey brought me to a place of pure consciousness. I felt the moment of my conception and emerged from there freed of all my life’s pain, guilt, traumas and resentments. I felt an unbelievable power of self and I totally trust that I can achieve anything I set my mind to. I fell in love with Me, accompanied by overwhelming happiness that I had long forgotten. I had clarity and direction after years of being lost. The fact that I was not alone and was sharing this experience with five other, like-minded, people allowed me to fully immerse myself with no threat of judgement. Each person’s journey’s different but we were all in need of something and with careful preparation and guidance were able to achieve what we were seeking.” | B.S.* *As a healthcare facility, we abide by patient confidentiality.

“The facilitators make you feel like you’re the only person there with the way they pay attention to your needs, see you and hold space for you. My life has been forever changed for the better. Any chance you can get to go, please do yourself the favor and go! Your future self thanks you in advance. What an experience! Eternally grateful to the wholesome humans behind this experience.” | S.N.* *As a healthcare facility, we abide by patient confidentiality.
