ABOUT FIVE ELEMENTS LODGE 

EARTH            WIND         WATER             FIRE 

    

FIVE ELEMENTS LODGE IS SITUATED ON 10 ACRES OF WOODLAND TRAILS  ON

SALT SPRING ISLAND, A SOUTHERN GULF ISLAND  LOCATED IN  BRITISH COLUMBIA

OUR HAND CRAFTED LODGE COMBINES FOUR EARTHLY ELEMENTS WITH  THE 

SPIRIT 

ELEMENT

OWNERS  ARE  MICHAEL COUPLAND ,  M.A., R.Psych (CPBC Reg, No. 2424)

DANA COUPLAND, CMI 

Michael and Dana were the founders of three large North American networks of physicians, psychologists and psychiatrists providing occupational mental health services across Canada and the USA.  They were the developers of the Functional Medicine Evaluation, and the COPE with PAIN and COPE with Trauma programs that became the standard of care for large national and regional employers assisting employees in the first responder, healthcare, education, retail, banking, aviation, and energy industries. (Click here to LinkedIn profile for complete bio)

They were the owners of THE SOMA CENTER  (raw food cafe, yoga and event center).  They have both retired from their most recent venture, subsequent to a private equity investment. 

They draw the inspiration for Five Elements Lodge Ecotherapy

from their  love of nature, their own  lifestyle practices, 50 years of meditation practice and their integrated approach to  provision of healthcare.

PSYCHEDELIC INTEGRATION THERAPY
*Michael Coupland offers a harm reduction or referral to legal pathways approach. Michael does not provide guide experience, does not provide access to controlled psychedelic medicines.

 

Trauma\PTSD, depression, anxiety, addiction, traumatic brain injury, and end of life anxiety symptoms can persist for patients in traditional treatment.

The insights from a psilocybin-induced psychedelic experience can be powerful when integrated with  evidenced based psychotherapy for the condition.

 

In a harm reduction approach, the therapist does not advocate for or against the use of psychedelics, but instead focuses on the client’s goals and welfare and attempts to help the client determine for themselves what behaviors will lead them toward the life they desire. Consistent with this aim, the therapist often begins with helping the client clarify reasons for seeking a psychedelic experience and may suggest alternative pathways for achieving desired goals, such as suggesting that a client seeking relief from depression first consider more established approaches such as psychotherapy,
antidepressants, Health Canada approved psychedelic clinical trials or special access programs, or ketamine treatment. From a harm reduction standpoint, these options would be presented to facilitate an informed choice
.
