Does the training cover how to facilitate psychedelic experiences with other substances besides truffles containing psilocybin?

The training is focused on psilocybin, as The Synthesis Institute uses truffles containing psilocybin or psilocybin mushrooms in its Immersion Retreat programs. The Synthesis Institute’s Psychedelic Practitioner Core Training does not include modules that support specific understanding or knowledge about working with other substances. Occasional guest faculty presentations and panel discussions may include or address other substances, but we are not committed to thorough coverage of all psychedelics in our training. 

Sometimes, participants have had experiences with other psychedelic substances, and they report that the training has been supportive of them and their skill-building as facilitators, even if they practice with a different substance.
