Psychedelic Medicine and the Healing Power of Nature: A Conversation with Tiffany Sauls, MD
Tiffany Sauls, MD
Join us for a web conversation with Tiffany Sauls, MD, a child/adolescent and adult psychiatrist specializing in psychedelic medicine and nature-based therapies. Dr. Saul’s path to psychedelic medicine came from an early curiosity about the healing potential of plants and nature, and she is the founder of Asheville Integrative Psychiatry, a nature-based integrative psychiatry and ketamine therapy center in Asheville, North Carolina. In this webinar, Dr. Saul will join Jamie Harvie, PRATI Executive Director and nationally-recognized environmental health leader, in a conversation about her work. She will share images from her innovative nature-based clinical practice, nestled in a wooded, 16-acre retreat in the foothills of Mount Pisgah. Together, they will explore nature-relatedness, nature connection, and holistic health and healing.
