Dr. Angela Beers is a committed observer, experiencer, investigator and teacher of the transpersonal, non-ordinary, somatic, psychospiritual and psychedelic channels of human existence. Her approaches are humanistic, transpersonal, existential and cognitive behavioral in nature. She has practiced clinical psychology since 2008 upon receiving her masters and later obtained her doctorate in 2015. She has worked in a variety of settings, inpatient, non-profit outpatient, prisons, and currently in private practice. Prior to Naropa she taught in a community college setting and enjoyed the diversity community college offered. The majority of her clinical work has been with people marginalized, Black, Indigenous, People of Color and mixed heritage. Her concentration is on individual, community and ancestral healing rooted in decolonizing and unsettling aspects via Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness. She believes in and strongly advocates for ethical, culturally sensitive psychedelic – entheogenic reclamation and accessibility.

She recognizes that one’s growth and stability depends on a balanced integration of the spiritual, social, psychological, and biological. For these reasons, she has come to understand and value the importance of balance between science, tenderness, integrity, resistance and the transpersonal. Both her dissertation and thesis research explored human interactions with dependency, detachment and communal exploration of engaging NOSC.
