Internal Family Systems and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy
Dr Richard Schwartz and Sunny Strasburg, LMFT


“Internal Family Systems and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy complement each other beautifully. I am honored to have co-hosted & co-created an IFS/KAP retreat with Dr. Richard Schwartz, the originator of Internal Family Systems at 1440 Multiversity in Scotts Valley, California. We hosted 21 business leaders with the view of healing people in positions of influence so that they may lead from grounded and healed Self energy. I have been using IFS along with EMDR and archetypal/depth psychology in my KAP practice and retreats for the past two years. It was amazing to bring a group together and watch Dr Szchwartz’ mastery using the IFS model & the healing amplification of psychedelic medicine. Several of the participants said it was the most life-changing experience they’ve ever had. I feel incredibly honored to have created the container and space alongside so many incredible healers and practitioners. We enjoyed live and pre-recorded music with David Starfire, the incredible medical support of Dr. Dan Ahlers & Julie Brody, RN, and IFS support from Dr Dave Lovus. Special thanks to Scott Kriens and the entire 1440 team. Each day felt like magic was being potentiated and we left buzzing with ideas and excitement about our future collaborations.” -Sunny

Upcoming Retreats

Inside the Maloca at the Finca Mia Retreat Center in Costa Rica

Elemental Healing
Medicine Retreat
Costa Rica
April 12-19, 2023

Elemental Healing with Sunny Strasburg and Michele Taggart, and medical supervision with Karen Madigan.  This retreat focuses on the Heroine’s Hero’s Journey, enhancing durable and proven integration techniques unique because it brings two medicines, two experienced facilitators, and four journeys together for a direct mystical experience. We will anchor visionary experience into psychological insight with narrative re-framing. We also use somatic IFS and EMDR processing to retain lasting change. We are more likely to create resiliency and enduring clarity when the journey is safely combined with best practices; facilitated in a way that is both profoundly mystical and grounded in psychotherapy.


There is still space available for you.
