Become The Facilitator You Were Meant To Be

Support your client's journey into accelerated, embodied personal growth with the
Microdosing Facilitator Program

Microdosing Institute is proud to collaborate with:

To catalyze lasting change from within,
there's no practice like microdosing

Microdosing is more than a trend - it’s a powerful practice for deepening self-awareness and reconnecting to others and nature. It allows your clients to disrupt patterns, integrate new understandings of themselves and their environments, and achieve lasting personal growth—it belongs in the toolbox of every coach, therapist, or practitioner in the field of health and wellbeing.

Rather than a single large psychedelic trip, microdosing involves establishing a personal relationship to sacred earth medicines that support your clients as they integrate newfound awareness and insights into their everyday lives.

Microdosing can fast track your client's embodied transformation from within

Accelerated Growth

Microdosing enhances cognitive flexibility and may promote neuroplasticity, which supports clients to see-through old programming and establish new, healthier patterns

Embodied Transformation

Through reflection, coaching support, and active integration, clients go on to embody new patterns, generating lasting personal change far after a microdosing cycle ends

Authentic Connection

Microdosing can help your clients facilitate deepened authentic connection to themselves, the earth, their community and their purpose— helping them embody their "true north"

I’m currently in this coaching program and I can’t say enough good things about it! So much heart and soul and wisdom. The facilitators are amazing, the guest speakers are powerful and offer such deep wisdom and cutting edge research. If you’re thinking about it, do it!

The thing is, there is not a one size fits all approach to microdosing for transformation...

Psilocybin, LSD, Mescaline, or another earth medicine? Raise or lower the dosage? Stamets or Fadiman protocol? There’s a lot to think about when building a microdosing practice that's safe, conscious and optimal for each client.

It truly takes a skilled practitioner to coach an individual towards building a healthy and effective relationship to their microdosing practice – one that fully supports them in living the life they want to live.

Even in microdose quantities, psychedelics are non-specific amplifiers—clear, knowledgable, and compassionate guidance is essential for seeing results

Microdosing has the power to change lives. Especially when used alongside supporting practices with facilitated guidance from an expert, the results from a microdosing practice can be extraordinary.

That’s where you come in.

If you’re a coach, therapist, or health practitioner serious about accelerating your clients' growth and life long transformation...

Join The Microdosing Facilitator Program

This 10-month intensive study will help you feel confident to safely and effectively incorporate microdosing guidance into your offerings. Students will leave the training feeling prepared and supported to facilitate guided microdosing processes from intake all the way to integration.
Students will be holistically supported throughout the program via a combination of our extensive 300+ page manual, hands-on experiential exercises, masterclasses with industry experts, coaching practicums, virtual knowledge integration circles, and peer-to-peer learning and mentoring.

A facilitator training like no other:

Ongoing Mentorship

Designed to help you define (or refine) who you are as a coach and how to align your professional offerings with your strengths and core values.

Hands-On Coaching Practicums

Giving you real world experience implementing the Microdosing Institute coaching framework from intake to integration.

Heart Forward Approach

Our inclusive global community is non-hierarchical and fosters authentic, lasting connections that transcend cultural and geographical barriers.

Informed by Indigenous Wisdom

Learn directly from Indigenous voices to honor and incorporate ancestral teachings into your personal practice and coaching.

We believe that when it comes to a successful microdosing practice or effective coaching, there's no single approach that works for everyone.

This program will culminate in a practical and custom-tailored 6-Week Facilitators Lab to help students gain clarity into what types of offerings, methods and modalities that are most optimal for their own lifestyles, current professional setup, ideal clients, and future aspirations.

Within this lab, students will engage in guided co-working sessions to define (or refine) who they are as a coach while starting to organize their offerings, both practically and logistically, helping them feel confident to begin coaching or incorporating microdosing into their offerings immediately after the program concludes. In this final module, there will also be a heavy focus on learning how to create conscious, sustainable business models, while managing self-care to avoid overwhelm, burn out and other mental health challenges that can show up for space holders and service providers.

Program Details:

Time investment: The total time investment for this program is 6-10 hours per week. This includes: attending live sessions/masterclasses, self-learning, co-working, peer-mentoring, and coaching practicums. 

Pre-requisites: The Microdosing Institute Facilitator Training builds heavily on the knowledge gained in the 6-Week Microdosing Immersive, and as such, completion of this program is a pre-requisite of our Microdosing Facilitator Program.

Start date: January 7, 2024

Scheduling: Live sessions take place every 2-3rd Sunday from 4-7 PM Amsterdam Time. All sessions are recorded for those unable to attend live, although it is recommended to attend at least 80% of the virtual sessions. Each module is 6-8 weeks, separated by 2-4 week long study breaks.

Online training: All training and practicums take place online, therefore, from module 1 onwards, students are expected to get acquainted and comfortable with using Zoom, PDFs, Google Calendar, Google Docs, Google Spreadsheets, Email, chat app Signal and community app Discord. We advise each student to be self-responsible with regards to technology use and spend time familiarizing themselves with these technologies as it will contribute significantly towards a smooth and joyful learning experience. 

Learning style: This training is highly structured and relatively fast-paced with a strong emphasis on experiential learning. Our students are expected to self-assess, self-monitor and self-evaluate their learning process based on pre-set learning goals. The learning style includes active absorption of materials, applying frameworks and protocols, and merging of newly acquired skills and knowledge during coaching practicums. This is not a classic form of education (‘receiving knowledge’) but rather a co-active learning process similar to the reality of how coaches and trainers work with their clients. When paired with mindful attention to planning, self-organization, seeking support, tapping into resources, trusting one’s capacity for growth, and taking lead, this helps lay a strong foundation for our students to walk their professional path with confidence and resourcefulness. 

This course contains the information and support I wish we had when we started Microdosing Institute. As the science and personal practice continue to evolve, we have refined what works into a flexible formula that can effectively support personal growth.

"Each piece leads up to the next ... the coaching practicum and the pod are significant factors in making this experience powerful! Would take away the important foundation pieces of each ZOOM session and all the material developed. All excellent."


Yes. This training builds heavily on Microdosing Institute’s 6-Week Microdosing Immersive, and participating in it will provide you with an embodied understanding of the journey your future coachees will make. 

Yes. Both our faculty of educators and students are joining from different geographical regions and bring in a variety of cultural, spiritual and professional backgrounds – we believe this benefits all other students as they grow their capabilities to support people through deep processes of transformation. Students will work in small groups on a weekly basis, to process the learning materials, support and mentor each other during practicums, and learn to co-organize and co-facilitate. We connect as a cohort to share knowledge and resources, and encourage students to network and cultivate deeper connections beyond the framework of this training.

We believe that high quality training programs should be available to all individuals who are dedicated, motivated and intentional about their wish to become a skilled, ethical, knowledgeable and compassionate microdosing facilitator. As such, application is open to all individuals who have demonstrated their potential towards the above qualities and commitment during their participation in the 6-Week Microdosing Immersive. 

The value of this training lies in the acquisition, development and refinement of knowledge, skills, frameworks for coaching or facilitation, case studies and mentoring, all related to microdosing with psychedelic substances, to the benefit of the student’s current or future professional practice. This training caters to all (aspiring) wellness and mental health workers, faciliators of personal growth trajectories, coaches and therapists, regardless license, prior education and experience level. Upon completion of this training, graduates are not granted a license, certificate or credits recognized by governmental institutions or educational institutions other than Microdosing Institute. Students will receive a certification of completion and the ability to market themselves as a “Microdosing Institute accredited Facilitator”.

Upon completion of this training, graduates are not granted a license, certificate or credits recognized by governmental institutions or educational institutions other than Microdosing Institute. 

Even though (certain) psychedelic compounds are increasingly legally available for therapeutic, medicinal, traditional, religious or recreational use, it’s important to realize that each country, state or local government has binding legislation in place that might obstruct a legal practice as a microdosing facilitator. Microdosing Institute is unable to provide specific education or training with regards to the legality of facilitating microdosing in the context of professional practice NOR for providing microdosing substances to others (clients) as a part of this practice. As of today, many professionals practice underground or in a gray zone. We strongly advise to consult with your local authorities and seek professional legal advice to understand your options. 

We are working on several initiatives to help make this training program financially accessible to people from different economies of scale, BIPOC communities and populations with limited financial resources. More information will be available soon.
