A certified mindfulness teacher with deep psychedelic expertise, Andrew was an integral part of the development of the Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration program at Mindspace starting in 2019. He also served as Director of Programming for our group mindfulness programs from 2018-2020. He sees clients for individual mindfulness training as well as coaching in Psychedelic Harm Reduction and Integration.

Andrew has been practicing meditation since 2002, having studied mainly in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition before becoming interested in the clinical applications of mindfulness. He completed his training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction with the Centre for Mindfulness Studies in 2018 and has been educating clinicians, therapists and the general public about psychedelics and their therapeutic applications since 2017. He completed MAPS’s MDMA Therapy for PTSD training program in 2021.

Andrew is passionate about furthering our collective understanding of what wellbeing really means, and how it can be effectively and sustainably practiced, communicated, and scaled for the benefit of all beings. He continues to draw inspiration from various Buddhist lineages and other esoteric traditions, and is passionate about all forms of ecstatic practices for reaching non-ordinary states, including movement, somatics, and sound.

Andrew is also an assisting trainer on the faculty at Fluence, a co-director of Plant Parenthood, a community organization supporting parents and families who use psychedelics.
