(July 14th, 2023 – St. Petersburg, Fla.) — The EAST Institute is proud to announce that they will be sponsors at the upcoming Cannadelic Summer in St. Petersburg, Florida, the world’s largest cannabis and psychedelics convention, shaping the future of wellness and consciousness on July 15, 2023.
Based in Atlanta, The EAST Institute uniquely sits at the inflection point between scientifically validated research and the traditional use of natural plant medicines. The EAST team offers a highly comprehensive method for healing mental health conditions, activating personal transformation, and deepening one’s purpose and spiritual connection, like nothing else available. The EAST Method™ is a structured Entheogenic Medicine Program, designed to accelerate a significant change in a person’s Psycho-Emotional and Spiritual state of being for their overall health and wellness. The team serves as experienced facilitators and guides for the person seeking the deepest levels of healing and spiritual transformation. They are dedicated to providing the diamond standard in psychedelic-assisted healing through education, preparation, and integration.
EAST Founders, Jeff Glattstein and Lena Franklin began the EAST Institute in 2021, based on their decades-long experience as teachers, facilitators and healers, as well as their personal experience of profound personal growth and learning in the East. Their multi-disciplinary approach incorporates six pillars including Shamanic Healing, Energy Medicine, Transpersonal Psychology, Mindfulness & Meditation, Vibrational Sound Therapy and Plant Medicine.
At Cannedelic Summer, Director of Programming, Christine Provine will participate on a panel discussing cannabis, psychedelics and trauma. She will share ways in which The EAST Institute leverages their proprietary Method to help restructure a person’s neural anatomy, healing trauma and releasing deeply held beliefs and psycho-emotional energies to make space for sustained peace, purpose and joy.
The EAST Institute will also host a booth at Cannadelic Summer for intimate conversations between conference go-ers and the team, who will share an entirely new revolutionary offering, EMBODI. Standing for entheogenic medicine-based optimization, dosing, & integration, this newly launched program offers an entirely individualized and holistic approach to microdosing natural psychedelic plants.
Based on the ethos that microdosing is not a “one size fits all” protocol, EMBODI uniquely offers a 360-degree approach to individualized care, supplies and integration. The very first program of its kind, the expert team creates proprietary blends, lab tests and maintains quality assurance every step of the way. EMBODI supplies are delivered straight to clients’ doors and paired with customized education, mentorship, and integration. Highly-trained EMBODI Microdosing Guides provide individual guidance and support throughout the program to ensure the client is able to harness the opportunities for neuroplasticity and embody sustained change. In addition to an initial consultation and monthly one-on-one check-ins, clients receive access to a library of informative videos and guided embodied practices. Each step of the program is catered towards integrating the microdosing experience into daily life – from diet to sleep to meditation and beyond – for a gentle yet powerful shift with positive ripple effects across all aspects of life.
“At EAST, we are on a mission to bring innovation, guidance and accessibility to the psychedelic ecosystem,” says Co-Founder, Jeff Glattstein. “We are excited to share EMBODI for one of the first times at Cannedelic Summer. We painstakingly created this offering, based on the belief that there is no magic pill and that the power of microdosing isn’t just in the capsule – it lies in the work that is done while the mind is highly primed for transformation. Through our deep seated experience in this space, we are able to offer a highly individualized, safe and comprehensive program for clients’ best experiences and greatest health and wellness outcomes possible. Perhaps most exciting of all, EAST is bringing EMBODI to different markets — including consumers, the military & veterans associations, and the therapeutic industry – all to help transform our health systems for the better and heal the collective.”
The EAST Institute is based out of Atlanta, Georgia with new facilities opening around the country in 2023 & 2024. EAST also offers international immersion, offering the chance to journey back to the sacred lands in which ancient shamanic medicine traditions originated. In addition to their personalized client work, The EAST Institute also offers an Entheogenic Facilitator Training, developed to help licensed professionals go deeper and help change the paradigm of psycho-emotional and holistic healing.
