Sensing Into Emergence

by Executive Director Jamie Harvie

As we close the year, I am feeling so grateful for our growing community and the PRATI board, faculty, staff, and volunteers that are helping our network grow and flourish and for the possibilities that abound. Consistent with our ecological model, I’m excited to share that in early 2023 we will prototype and then launch a Group KAP Training Program and End of Life (EOL) KAP Programming. And, there are more projects in the pipeline.

Help Nurture PRATI’s Growth

Looking back on the past year, there is so much we have done together — and we are grateful for you! In 2022, we were able to award 17 scholarships ($64,000) and trained professionals from 28 states and four countries. If you’d like to continue to support us in this work of collective healing and transformation, consider giving a donation or giving a gift of a book from our bookstore.

Poems By Cole Butler

Cole collected and distributed some of his poems that felt relevant to ketamine work, potentially to be utilized during the swishing portion of oral KAP sessions. He has read these poems during swishing for his group KAP sessions and encourages others to share this work and utilize it in KAP practice as feels appropriate.

Photos From Our November KAP Training

We came together in joyful community with 28 participants and 10 PRATI staff in our November KAP Training at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, CO. Here are a few images from the training! This was the final training of the year, and we look forward to what 2023 will bring.
