Psychedelic preparation and engagement coaching focus on exploring intention along with values clarification before a psychedelic experience. True Azimuth Coaching does not offer guided psychedelic experiences. True Azimuth Coaching does not offer referrals to private providers who offer guided psychedelic experiences. True Azimuth Coaching does not assist clients in finding or obtaining illegal substances.

True Azimuth Coaching does not encourage engagement in illegal activities, including the purchase and consumption of illegal substances.
While psychedelics can help a person interested in exploring their inner world and their perceptual relationship to the outer world, psychedelics can also be a source of disorientation, delusion, confusion, and psychological destabilization for those unfit, unequipped, or unprepared for such powerful experiences.
Psychedelic substances can cause long-lasting changes to personality and cognition. Individuals can also have undiagnosed genetic, developmental, neurological, endocrinological, or traumatic conditions that negatively interact with the psychedelic chemical and experience.
Due to the nature of the psychedelic experience, some individuals must not use psychedelics.

WHAT IT IS NOT
A “test drive” is not a consult, or get-to-know-you-session. It’s not a sales pitch loaded with leading closed-closed ended questions designed to convince you to hire the coach you are talking to.
CARS AND COACHES
You wouldn’t buy a car without taking it for a test drive, would you?
Of course not!
Don’t do that with a coach either!
Beware of this wolf in sheeps clothing. A “Discovery Call” is not a Test Drive.
Some coaches receive specific training on how to conduct these Discovery Calls. They are a specific SALES TECHNIQUE designed not to hep you but to close a sale!

All you need is a phone! (After you complete some pre-work, we connect via phone for your coaching session).
