Grateful Deb Servenick
Deborah “Grateful Deb” Servetnick, M.Ed., is a teacher, speaker, and leader in transformational psychedelic preparation and integration coaching and lives in Baltimore.

Deborah Servetnick has been a transformational teacher all her adult life. Her love for the Grateful Dead brought her to Berkeley, CA where she studied a variety of bodywork and energy modalities, Chinese medicine, Rebirthing, and meditation. Her intuitive healing practices led her to work with people with AIDS and other life-threatening illness, and while engaged as an ACT-UP activist in San Francisco and Philadelphia, she was ordained as a minister offering hands-on healing and holding space for the dying and their transition.
Deborah was at the first Burning Man and by the age of 30 she studied with Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, experienced her first ayahuasca ceremony, and met the Dalai Lama. It was during a Dark Night of the Soul breast cancer diagnosis in 2011 that she returned to psychedelics for healing and a new way of living.
Deborah has taught thousands to move from a conditional life to a life they love living through a transformational spiritual curriculum in alignment with a psychedelic experience, using the same tools that saved her life.
Psychedelicoaching is her passion and she has been an outspoken leader in Decriminalization, testifying for and assisting in the legalization of medical cannabis in Maryland.
