Christopher Hobbs, PhD, LAc


Learn about the scientifically determined healing effects of various psychedelic medicines considering their properties, safety, legality, and accessibility and how they can help you address trauma, anxiety, depression, and addiction to live with greater ease, self-understanding, and a more expansive perspective.

Major media have been trumpeting the fact that we are in the midst of a psychedelic renaissance a movement gaining widespread attention based on progress around legalization and groundbreaking scientific discoveries.

It’s creating a burgeoning industry of psychedelic-assisted therapies that are poised to become a key part of the future of healthcare and psychology, as more and more leaders are recognizing the key role these therapies can play in promoting emotional, mental, and neurological wellbeing.

This movement can, however, also lead to an overly rosy presentation of psychedelics as beneficial for ALL conditions. There’s a great need for us to increase our sophistication around these potent modalities as we enter this new era and cultivate deep knowledge about the types of psychedelics that are available and the optimal way to engage with them.

Are YOU curious about the use of psychedelics not just for recreational purposes, but as a therapeutic way to alleviate psychological and spiritual challenges?

Have you wondered about the higher states of consciousness and ego dissolution that certain psychedelics are purported to evoke?

According to internationally renowned herbalist, clinician, and research scientist Christopher Hobbs, a steady stream of emerging clinical trials is providing meaningful evidence regarding the significant benefits of certain psychedelics with regard to reducing or even eradicating symptoms of trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, addiction, and more when used safely.

From Dr. Hobbs’ point of view, these substances were originally meant to be experienced as portals into your own psyche and heart...

... keys into your inner world and otherworldly dimensions where you can receive the guidance and epiphanic awareness you need to transform and heal.

Dr. Hobbs is inspired to share with you the scientific wisdom and often life-changing benefits of four of the most researched and best-known psychedelics.

Join him in a free video event, in which he’ll share about each of these psychedelic medicines providing you with an overview of their healing impact, how to use them, and their relative safety, legality, and accessibility.

He’s eager to help you determine which of these medicines might have the most effective and long-lasting impact on you in addressing the emotional, spiritual, and relational struggles you’re currently facing.

Because Dr. Hobbs’ knowledge is based on scientific research, clinical trials, and extensive personal experience, he holds a great deal of information and an extraordinary level of wisdom about how each of these psychedelics affect the workings of your brain...

... including where to find them, the most effective settings in which to use them, and ways to find trained and experienced facilitators to walk you through the journeys of each.

In this hour, he’ll focus primarily on:

  • Psilocybin Discover how this ancient, naturally growing mushroom can unlock your creative skills and potentially aid in managing PTSD and anxiety.
  • MDMA Explore how this synthetic substance (also known as Molly and ecstasy in some circles) can open your heart, fostering deep connections filled with appreciation, love, and gratitude.
  • Ayahuasca Uncover the transformative power of this natural and spiritual hallucinogen (including its most active ingredient, DMT) and its ability to dissolve the ego and alter your perception of reality.
  • Ketamine Learn about the calming effects of this widely used synthetic and its potential to help you manage trauma and break free from addiction.

Dr. Hobbs will reveal one of the most fascinating aspects of the more organic psychedelics: the mounting evidence that they were likely part of the catalyst and foundational wisdom for some major religions, including Vedic traditions and Christianity!

And you’ll learn about microdosing and the addictive potential (or lack thereof) of the various psychedelics, so you can begin to discern which medicinal path might be the most comfortable, safest, and most effective for your wellness journey.


In this intriguing and informative event, you’ll discover:

  • An overview of 4 psychedelics, how they work with your brain and psyche, the benefits they provide, and ways to use them
  • A breathing meditation led by Dr. Hobbs’ wife, Rainya Dann, to set an intention and bring you into a present and relaxed state of mind
  • How to mitigate your risk as you use psychedelics by assuming a positive mental state, arranging an appropriate environment, and setting mindful intentions
  • The ethical and legal considerations of each of the psychedelics, their safety and accessibility, and their long-term effects
  • Psychedelic use in BIPOC or other marginalized communities  and how the medicines may help heal the pain of oppression
  • Psychedelics in the context of history, wisdom traditions, and the evolution of human consciousness

When you attend this workshop, you’ll also be among the first to hear about Dr. Hobbs’ brand-new 7-week live video course, in which you’ll have an opportunity to delve much more deeply into the details of each of these psychedelics, their properties, and their mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual benefits.

You’l learn about their scientific makeup, how they trigger different actions in your brain, the results you might expect, how to use them on your own, in community, or with the guidance of a facilitator... and much more.

“Thank you for creating this program!”

In the past, I never thought I’d do well with this type of program, as I prefer a classroom setting. However, once I saw Christopher’s presentation, I realized how in-depth and good this program would be for me. I have enjoyed each chapter and even though some is overview, I still learned more than I knew before. I have encouraged others to take this program because of the incredible instructional background and development, and how easy this is to fit into my current busy lifestyle. I am excited to progress onward through this study, and know this work will lead me to more of what I like in the herb profession.

“I have explored many herbal distance-learning programs, and this course is by far superior.”

I have explored many herbal distance-learning programs and this course is by far superior. The material is presented so that it’s easily understandable with great references, making the information easy to retain. The course goes beyond theory, and presents practical information that you can begin using immediately. I am finally making my own herbal remedies that are benefitting myself, my family, and friends. I would highly recommend Dr. Hobbs’ program to anyone interested in studying the wonder of herbs!

“I highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to gain a deeper understanding of herbal medicine.”

The course has been an amazing adventure for me. There is so much information packed in a very organized way that builds from one lesson to the next. There’s an underlying theme throughout that helps one grasp concepts along the way. I especially loved the way that problems in each body system are addressed with well-defined herbal formulas that one can make. The information about the herbs themselves is invaluable, and I know I will be referring back to this course always. The course quizzes are a way to consolidate the information gained from each lesson, and at the end of each lesson one can continue with the additional projects listed, so the learning goes on!
