Daniel McQueen, MA
Executive Director and Co-Founder, Psychedelic Specialist, Author and Educator at the Center for Medicinal Mindfulness
At the Center for Medicinal Mindfulness, a legal psychedelic therapy clinic in Boulder, Colorado, we have led thousands of people through cannabis-assisted and ketamine-assisted psychedelic therapy sessions that have brought major breakthroughs in their lives. We help them to heal trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, grief, and feelings of meaninglessness. Since our founding in 2012, we have become an established leader in the emerging field of psychedelic therapy. Our vision is to heal and transform humanity and our shared ecology through education, facilitation, and integration of safe, legal psychedelic practices. We work with legal medicines only (cannabis, ketamine) in both individual and group settings, and always with medical oversight. We offer private retreats, trainings, and community events. We are also an intentional community of healers and activists that promote safe psychedelic use for personal and global healing and transformation.
