Rabbi Eli Beda

Throughout my life, I have experienced a rich tapestry of diverse endeavors and adventures that have taken me on a journey beyond my wildest dreams. From the vibrant rhythms of salsa dancing on the sun-soaked beaches of South Beach to the meditative energy of raves in the ancient city of Teotihuacan, my life has been a kaleidoscope of colors and experiences that have shaped my perspective and enriched my soul. My journey has taken me to the holy city of Jerusalem, where I pursued my passion for Rabbinical studies and discovered my deep connection to faith and spirituality. Along the way, I have been blessed with a loving partner and five beautiful children, who have brought joy and fulfillment to my life. As I have traveled the world, I have been on a mission to educate and promote the power of medical cannabis. In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, my journey has taken a new turn, and I have delved deeply into the depths and power of plant medicine. Through my rabbinical skills of active listening and being present with Hashem (The Name), I have been providing guidance, coaching, and assisting others in integrating life’s journeys, both with and without medicine. As a Kohen, I have tapped into the ancient power of ritual and ceremony to create an appropriate set and setting for profound spiritual work. With a deep sense of purpose and a mission to shed light on any darkness we encounter on our paths, I continue to explore the vast potential of the human spirit and the transformative power of plant medicine.

What is KAP training
Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is a novel, breakthrough approach to the awakened mind and the healing of trauma and depression.

The Ketamine Training Centre (KTC) is the premier organisation in the field having provided training to over 500 practitioners in our 6-day residential retreat events.

Ketamine-assisted therapy (KAT) is a unique therapeutic method used to address a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, post-traumatic stress, chronic pain, addiction, and some forms of anxiety. It involves the use of ketamine to enhance and deepen the therapeutic process, and the use of psychotherapy and other integrative forms of treatment to amplify and prolong the curative effects of ketamine.*

In low doses, ketamine can serve as a supportive adjunct to psychotherapy, as it provides an opportunity for the temporary softening of the psychological defences, allowing for deeper self reflection and psychotherapeutic processing.

In moderate doses, ketamine has psychedelic effects, which have been shown to facilitate profound transpersonal experiences. These types of experiences can help people in a variety of ways, offering important clarity and insight into one’s struggles, adding a spiritual dimension to ongoing therapeutic work, and facilitating a sense of meaning and interconnectedness.
