Daniel McQueen is the executive director of Medicinal Mindfulness—an international psychedelic therapy training program focusing on Cannabis-Assisted Psychedelic Therapy and Cannabis-Assisted Psychotherapy. As a somatically oriented psychedelic facilitator, Daniel is dedicated to exploring experiences that integrate the four primary paradigms of intentional medicine use: creative, scientific, psychological, and spiritual.
When cannabis became legal in Colorado in 2014, Daniel began facilitating group psychedelic experiences using special blends of cannabis that induce psychedelic states that mimic a blending of MDMA, psilocybin, ayahuasca, and even DMT. These events, called Conscious Cannabis Circles, helped develop the potential for cannabis to be used as a psychedelic, within a mindfulness based, transpersonally aligned, and clinically informed protocol to treat trauma, PTSD, and other significant psychological concerns.
Join CIIS professor Natlie Metz for a conversation with Daniel exploring healing and personal transformation through the intentional use of cannabis and psychedelics.
