About the event

Holding Space is a 3 – day experiential workshop that offers practical knowledge and practices that can help us prepare, navigate and integrate psychedelic experiences, and provides important and even life saving knowledge about how to better support the difficult psychedelic experiences of our loved ones and clients. During the workshop we will teach tools and techniques that were developed through years of experience in psychedelic harm reduction and mindfulness-based psychotherapy, explore what it means to be mindful of our own inner experience when providing support and learn how to implement the insights of a psychedelic experience into everyday life through integration.

Nir Tadmor and Igal Tartakovsky are professional therapists that founded two separate psychedelic harm reduction projects in Israel, and decided to join forces to spread the many important lessons psychedelic harm reduction has to teach us. Since Safe Shore was founded 8 years ago, Igal and Nir have supported and supervised more than a thousand psychedelic crises in musical events and in private practice, facilitated 32 “Holding Space” workshops in Israel, the UK, The Netherlands and Estonia, and are currently working on a few scientific papers about psychedelic harm reduction with the Israeli Ministry of Health.


  • Compassionate listening and mindful awareness practices
  • Deep dive into the ethics and guidelines of psychedelic harm reduction
  • Psychedelic crisis intervention and integration case studies
  • Discussion about psycho-spiritual crisis
  • 1.5-hour psychedelic neurochemistry and research lecture
  • 2.5-hour session of simulations using tools from playback theatre and psychodrama where participants can get as close as possible to hands-on experience in crisis intervention.
  • Knowledge and practical tools that will help you integrate psychedelic experiences.
  • Discussion about the shadow aspect of psychedelic therapy


Nir Tadmor is a transpersonal psychotherapist, phenomenological researcher and Director of Education in Impulse – Integrative clinical center. He holds a Master’s in Transpersonal Psychology from Middlesex University (through the Alef Trust), trained in Hakomi body-centered psychotherapy and is a co-researcher in a neurophenomenological study about Ayahuasca and death perception in Haifa University. For his Master’s thesis Nir conducted a phenomenological study about the psychospiritual integration process that unfolds in the lives of Western mental health professionals who use psychedelics for personal and professional growth.


Igal Tartakovsky is a mindfulness-based psychotherapist (ACT, Satya) who specializes in psychedelic integration. He is also the founder of “Soft Landing” – a project that supports young people on their return to Israel from their post-army journey abroad.


Please Note- Attending this (or any single) workshop does not certify you as a facilitator of psychedelic substances. It is intended as a way to gain deeper understanding of this emerging field, work within your own personal psychedelic process, be present with those going through a process, and further develop your skillset if you are a therapist or facilitator. As there are a lack of on-the-ground trainings in South Africa available, this is an accessible way to begin the process of Psychedelic Self Education, where each of us can build our own toolkits of experience and training for the present and future of psychedelic wellness, whether for professional or personal use.
