About the Event
Join Rebecca Hendrix, LMFT and Liz Anable, PhD, LMHC from Evolve Integration in exploring the world of psychedelic medicine through reading and intentional discussion. This virtual book club and discussion with the author is designed for clinicians and psychedelic professionals, but is open to all who are interested in psychedelic healing.
Every two weeks, we will gather virtually to discuss a portion of the assigned book (approximately 45 pages per week), and our facilitators will prepare insightful questions to guide each session. Members are asked to complete the assigned reading prior to the biweekly meeting and be ready to participate in a lively discussion.
Please ensure that you can attend 3 out of the 4 sessions below from 12pm-1pm EST:
- Thursday, March 16th Intro and pages 1-35
- Thursday March 30th p. 37-99
- Thursday April 13th p. 100-160 (with author, Ayelet)
- Thursday April 27th p. 161-219
This is an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and deepen your knowledge of psychedelic medicine. Whether you're a seasoned professional or just starting out, this book club is a great way to explore this fascinating field while making new friends!

Our First Book:
We will be reading A Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life by Ayelet Waldman, who will be joining us during one of the sessions for a Q/A. This memoir provides a unique perspective on the impact of microdosing LSD—touching on themes of mental health, personal growth, and relationships—along with exploration of its history and research. We're excited to dive into this thought-provoking book and explore the role of psychedelics in modern medicine and personal wellness.
