JOHN SAUL

JOHN SAUL

John Saul found himself rebuilding his life after having it turned upside-down a few years ago. In late 2012, he was struck by systemic sclerosis, or “scleroderma,” a debilitating, painful, incurable life-threatening illness. Through many means, including participation as a study subject in the MAPS-sponsored Phase II clinical trial of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for the treatment of anxiety due to life-threatening illness, John has been able to emerge out of the darkest place one could find themselves and rebuild his fortitude and his life. He hopes that by sharing his story of psychedelic healing he can show others that that it is possible to choose life over death, become your own cure, and meet the resulting challenges with love and an empathetic heart. John continues to explore and work with a wide variety of healing modalities including meditation, yoga and fitness, and is fascinated by witnessing the transformation of people who embark on therapeutic psychedelic journeys. John is a peer facilitator at the Santa Monica integration circles.

GREG LAWRENCE

Greg is an active member of the southern California plant medicine community and energy worker who believes that spiritual development and personal growth go hand in hand, that psychedelics and entheogens can be effective tools in the pursuit of both, and that community support can be a valuable component in the integration of other states of consciousness. He credits plant medicine, psychotherapy and the support of his family and peers with helping him turn his life around after personal tragedy turned it upside-down a few years ago. Greg is honored to be a part of PsychedeLiA's own growth by facilitating the West San Fernando Valley and Santa Monica integration circles.

SEL SARKIN

SEL SARKIN

Sel Sarkin studied Electrical Engineering with Post Graduate Degree in Digital Architecture. He became interested in Medical Electronics and did diagnostic research, development of Pacemakers and design of Electro magnetic Energy Machines (EMEM), also known as the Rife machine. In the early 80's, he became interested in Meditation and Psychology. This led him to a breathing technique known as Rebirthing, developed by Leonard Orr, and believes that breathing techniques could be used to purge traumatic childhood memories that had been repressed. He ran breathwork workshops and included various Improvisational dance forms such as Free Style dance and contact Improvisation. He later studied Acupressure, Massage, Cranio Sacral Balancing and Reiki. In 2010 he was approached by people who were reluctant to use chemotherapy to treat cancer. After hearing reports that the use of a potent extract of cannabis oil was having dramatic results with cancer he felt a calling to work with this medicine to see if it actually was effective. From there the world of Plant Medicines opened up and he began to research the nature and properties of the different Entheogens used to help people on their spiritual journey. Today Sel continues to consult with people with their health issues and the use of these medicines to help resolve and heal them from often very debilitating conditions.
