Systematic Decolonization

We invite you to create a powerful and liberated alternative to healing.

Systematic Decolonization is an application of decolonizing theory


Systematic Decolonization (formerly known as Functional Decolonization or FD)...

  • Deconstructs complex problems and restructures processes to yield equitable, just, and sustainable outcomes.

  • Incorporates principles of sociology, cognitive behavioral psychology, linguistics, institutional organizational psychology, and traditional and Indigenous knowledge, as well as diverse lived experience.

  • Has existing applications in clinical research, curriculum, medicine & healthcare delivery, institutional organizational culture, and psychedelic sciences, with many prospective initiatives underway.

  • Is deliberately accessible, flexible, and designed to work with the resources that you have on hand.


There is no “right” way to decolonize. Systematic Decolonization leaves learners empowered, equipped, & aware on their own decolonizing journey by strategically laying stepping stones for decolonizing processes & bridging colonial & extra/paracolonial ways of knowing & being.
