BTA Training 

The Professional Certificate in States of Expanded Consciousness (CSEC)

January - September 2022. 

 

The CSEC programme is designed for those who would like to explore expanded conscious states, including psychedelic experiences, to deepen understanding in order to elevate their integration work with clients.  

A person who has experienced a shift in consciousness often changes their perspective on life, death, dreaming, emotions, relationships, and spirituality. This shift results in a search for understanding, which calls for those who work alongside to have acquired a deep philosophical and spiritual understanding of the multiple aspects of the experience.

Therefore, Level I will be separated into two parts:

CSEC - Level I

Part I will be based on Transpersonal Psychology and will include: Consciousness, Mystical Experiences, Spirituality, Religion, Ancient Wisdom, Lucid Dreams, Intuition, and Near-Death/Shared Death Experiences.

 

CSEC Part II will explore psychedelics including: History, Philosophy, Current Research, Ethics, Legalities, Music and Meditation. Part II will also provide a Psychedelic Therapy module, which will include direct online instruction from a legal psychedelic therapist, based in the Netherlands. He will be sharing his experiences of working with clients. The Psychedelic Therapy module will also offer an optional 3-day visit to the Netherlands next year.  

The BPA's objective is to make consciousness and psychedelic education as accessible as possible, the course will require around ten hours of study per week, which will include a 2-hour zoom meeting. We also want the course to be as affordable as possible by offering BPA General Members a 50% discount. 

 

The costs:

 

CSEC Part I 

Fundamentals of Consciousness, January - April 2022: 

£1200.00 or £600.00 for BPA members (payable monthly).

 

CSEC Part II 

Foundational Psychedelics, May - September 2022:

(Does not include costs of optional visit to the Netherlands).

The CSEC course is a stand-alone programme to elevate skills around expanded states of consciousness. 

The CSEC course is also a foundational programme to determine if professional psychedelic practitioner work is the direction you wish to pursue.

 

The CSEC- Level II 

This programme will be available to participants who have completed CSEC Level I and will begin in late 2022 and end in the summer of 2023. This programme is now being designed and developed for a more extensive exploration into consciousness expansion.

The Sofia University in California (originally established as the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology) states: 

Traditional psychology is interested in a continuum of human experience and behavior ranging from severe dysfunction, mental and emotional illness at one end, to what is generally considered “normal”, healthy behavior at the other end and various degrees of normal and maladjustment in between. While an exact definition of Transpersonal Psychology is the subject of debate, Transpersonal Psychology is a full spectrum psychology that encompasses all of this and then goes beyond it by adding a serious scholarly interest in the immanent and transcendent dimensions of human experience: exceptional human functioning, experiences, performances and achievements, true genius, the nature and meaning of deep religious and mystical experiences, non-ordinary states of consciousness, and how we might foster the fulfillment of our highest potentials as human beings.
