He began teaching in 2002, and took over leadership of his neighborhood yoga studio in 2004. He’s directed several teacher training programs and taught on the faculty of even more.His work evolved into a coaching practice based on deep inquiry, and the cultivation of clarity, resilience, and heart. With the recognition that our true nature is vast and generous, wise, he strives to encourage his clients to find their own innate goodness and boundless strength.In 2018 he founded Mt. Tam Psychedelic Integration, a community based organization focused on approaching psychedelic preparation and integration as a true spiritual practice. Tam integration offers circles, meditation classes worldwide.In this episode, Daniel shares about ...His early spiritual realizations and the challenges of oscillating between touching into enlightened states and recognizing his "crap"How difficult it is to heal self-hatredBecoming a coach to help people who are getting their asses kicked by their own shadowsThe fact that our psychedelic visions rarely survive first contact with realityIntegration as the art of the possibleHow people tend to repress their natural needs and need support unearthing and reclaiming their creativity and other deep-seated gifts and desiresHis "depth bias" – if you're coming to him for help with superficial aspects of your life, he's not the coach for you; but if you want to "reach into your guts and pull out demons and brush them off and let them fly and turn into angels", he's all in!How people desperately want to be seen as humans, not commoditiesThe fact that while there are many formal processes one can use with integration clients, doing is much less important than simply being present and embodying empathy and compassion while allowing clients' insights to naturally emergeThe six streams in Buddhism and how medicine work can lead a person into a "hungry ghost" realm if they are grasping for a psychedelic experience to 'fix' them but lack a concept of self-loveHis perspective on training to be a psychedelic integration coach and the importance of having the dedication and discipline to study under someone who will support you as you grow in your capacity to hold space and guide clients through their integration processHow training to be a psychedelic integration coach also reflects care about your own development - why wouldn't you want to train?Navigating a world from the place of the heart - what's it like to walk a path of releasing fear?How he's gotten clients and grown his business by showing up consistently for 20 years and finally embracing having a 'brand'The notion of "psychedelic assisted coaching" to help us go deeper within, find self-compassion and integrate disparate parts of ourselvesHow his business is built on giving and goodwillThe power of integration circles and mutual support – it's a web where everyone gets value and support through everyone else – it's not about himThe guru model has played out – the sex scandals, guru worship, patenting, etc. that were happening in the yoga scene ten years ago are now happening in the psychedelic sceneAn integration circle is a space of practice – it's a meditation community, not a "woe is me" support groupPsychedelic integration is new, and we're all exploring and discovering different models togetherHis passion about and efforts towards ending the drug war - dismantling oppressive systems of control that are poisoning the planet and the people who live on itYou can do what you want! Follow your true passion! "Figure out what you want to do and figure out how to pull it off" Psychedelics may help! ;-)ResourcesDaniel's websites:https://sitaramdas.com/https://tamintegration.com/Free gift! https://tamintegration.com/beth-gifts/ Meditative preparation for a day of mushrooms -- a free email class.

Ep. 39 - Mt. Tam Psilocybin Summit - Psychedelic Gnosis and Enlightenment-Based Society (feat. Daniel Shankin)

The Mushroom Hour Podcast

Today on Mushroom Hour we are graced by the presence of Daniel “Sitaram Das” Shankin. Daniel is the founder of Mt. Tam Psychedelic Integration, which supports individuals who are exploring their consciousness for spiritual growth and transformational healing. He is the proud host of the Mt. Tam Psilocybin Summit which brings together leaders in the field of psychedelic science in a virtual summit for "Four Days Celebrating the Myth, Magic, Science, and Culture of the Sacred Mushroom". The Mt. Tam Psilocybin Summit takes place 9/17/20 - 9/20/20. Mushroom Hour listeners can get discounted tickets here: https://summit.psilocybinsummit.com/tickets/?coupon=hithereI will be moderating a speaker session and will be absorbing all the amazing material being shared!Daniel's path began working at a yoga bookstore, pursuing gnosis from Eastern spiritual traditions like Buddhism and Hinduism. Books like "Be Here Now" were incredibly influential in his own psychedelic explorations and spiritual pursuits. Why do psychedelic experiences and Eastern mysticism seem to blend well together? Do both pursuits aim to take us to the same transcendental plane?Through his work at Mt. Tam Integration, Daniel has extensive experience when it comes to preparing individuals for a psychedelic experience and helping them integrate back into sober consciousness after such an experience. He'll explain the preparatory importance of set and setting (including preparing one's own emotional state) and some of the tools he uses with clients like somatic anchoring. When it comes to integration, we learn how revelatory urges can be acted upon safely and effectively without hurting the people around us.In the noble pursuit of shifting our current culture towards an enlightenment society, Daniel was called to create the Mt. Tam Psilocybin Summit. This conference brings together incredible speakers from around the world and of all different backgrounds. He thought this was one of the best ways he could contribute to the creation of a society based around positive values like love, grace and humility. As psychedelics suffuse into the mainstream, we look at the impacts of forces like capitalism and politics on the integrity of utopian psychedelic ideals. What is the future of psychedelic culture and will the current psychedelic renaissance help bring about an enlightenment society?

Daniel Shankin - Leadership Coaching and The Psilocybin Summit

Psychedelics Today

Download In this episode, Kyle interviews Daniel Shankin, Founder of Tam Integration. They cover topics including the Psilocybin Summit, child rearing, and integration practice. 3 Key Points: The Psilocybin Summit is an online conference on the myth, magic and science of psychedelic mushrooms. Psychedelic Integration is really a form of reparenting ourselves. We need to learn to ask ourselves how we can connect deeply without becoming codependent. Child rearing is an important topic. Nurturing a child with care and love is similar to the way we use psychedelics, meditation and yoga for healing.

Navigating Psychedelics Trip JournalIntegration Workbook Show Notes About Daniel Daniel came up in the psychedelic space in the 90’s Recreational use turned into therapeutic use He explains that as enlightenment called to him, it also called him to do shadow work He said the transformational work began in his 20’s He said there was no community so he used Ram Dass books to help with integration Daniel says that psychedelics made him feel a deeper sense of life, more responsibility in his role on earth, feel more connected, etc. His calling from these feelings led him to practice yoga, open a studio, provide trainings and more “People gain so much by being heard” - Daniel Child Rearing Daniel mentions talking to his wife about conscious child raising The conversation is about how to heal, not just talking about how to raise ourselves so we need less healing “How do I raise a baby with as little trauma as possible?” - Daniel Grof talks about the birth process in his books but kind of stops talking about trauma after the baby is out The baby is designed to be held by the mother, and to put that child in a box with other children in boxes without parents, in a cold and sterile environment is a horrible idea We project our own anti-social tendencies onto babies A baby is meant to have constant connection and attention, and when we give a baby neglect, we wonder why they have addiction, depression, etc. Psychedelic Integration is really a form of reparenting ourselves “How much deep connection can you offer and can you stand? How can I connect deeply without becoming codependent?” - Daniel Attachment and Healing As a yoga teacher for 20 years, he has found that there is a type of reparenting, that it is helping people to learn to help themselves “Caring for people is a good thing to practice, one of our greatest problems is self-centeredness” - Daniel Money isn't the problem, "my money" is the problem Samskara is a subtle tendency of the mind (like an eroded river) The tendency to prove that we exist, or to prove that we are right, is something that the ego promotes It takes energy to tame the ego and recondition ourselves “Am I trying to prove that I exist in order to feel loved?” If our needs are met and we feel safe and loved, we don't need to prove ourselves We tend to look for the quickest and easiest way possible for the least amount of suffering, we look for the quick fix, but there is a lot of work to be done typically It's important to introduce a meditation practice into a psychedelic practice Babies will cry into an endless void because they don't understand time, just like in breathwork or psychedelic sessions, where time is distorted Mindfulness of Enthusiasm Enthusiastic consent is where you can press someone into giving you consent Are they enthusiastic about engaging with you? If not, then don't Learn how to gauge enthusiasm Psilocybin Summit September 19-22, 2019 The 920 Coalition is doing for psilocybin what 420 is doing for cannabis There has never been a conference that is just psilocybin, and never fully online and live It allows people to attend a conference from home There is no venue to pay for, no tickets for travel, making it more accessible The goal is to get as much traditional information as possible Daniel says he's not advocating psychedelics, he is advocating meditation for those who use psychedelics Daniel hopes that with this conference, that he didn't choose the speakers to just spit facts, hopefully this is heart and mind education that helps people feel like there is something possible in their lives that makes them feel greater, and that may or may not include psilocybin Coaching vs. Therapy Some people do not need therapy, they need coaching and accountability We live in a world where our context does not always work to serve us How do we change our context to better serve us?
