Who am I?

Bénédicte Mannix

“Dream your life and live your dreams.”

 

I am a  positive and enthusiastic person, forever in search of truth and happiness. I believe in the immense potential of human beings and that every person is beautiful. In more than 30 years travelling the world I have met many people from different cultures and have learned a lot from them. I realised long ago that what makes people happy, more than anything else, is to be free. Everybody has the power to achieve whatever goals they can imagine and my role as a therapist is to help people know themselves in order to achieve them.

  • I have several years’ experience in Risk Reduction in various large festivals around the world. Also, being part of its creation in South Africa. Work which involves providing a supportive environment and specialized care designed to transform difficult psychedelic experiences into valuable learning opportunities, and even potentially offer healing and growth.

  • I am a psilocybin facilitator. My 30 years of experience with psychedelics and the witnessing of others’ experiences have proven to me their benefits. I am so grateful for having facilitated groups and individuals using psilocybin, and seen the magical results.

  • I am a psychedelic integration therapist. Integration is one of the most important parts of the psychedelic journey. It gives a space to bring forth insights gained during the altered state of consciousness to our normal state.
