The Zendo offers peer to peer counseling with individuals who are trained to work with overwhelming experiences. Many of our volunteers are mental health professionals, psychedelic researchers, and medical service providers. Others have training in holistic healing modalities or other relevant experience. We provide our volunteers with an on-site comprehensive training which further prepares them for offering harm reduction services.
Zendo Project Volunteers
Our volunteers are committed to offering support to individuals undergoing challenging or overwhelming experiences. Volunteers come from a variety of different backgrounds and are knowledgable in the fields of psychedelics, psychology, and psychotherapy. Volunteers must be able to assist in crisis situations while remaining calm and grounded.
