The Ketamine Training Center.

Sunny helped initiate, organize and served as Lead Trainer at the first Internal Family Systems and Ketamine Assisted Therapy training for licensed practitioners with Dr Richard Schwartz and Dr Phil Wolfson at Menla Retreat Center in upstate New York in May, 2022. The training was structured in a novel way, amalgamating KAP and IFS with mid-dose and psycholytic dose journeys with ample IFS processing.

It was a delightful success, and this novel IFS/KAP training will be offered again on the West Coast in February, 2023 at 1440 Multiversity.
