Founder, Integration Specialist
Omar is the founder of Diaspora Psychedelic Society (DPS) and member of the Jamaican Diaspora Task Force Action Network (JDTAN) who's goal is to mobilize members of the Jamaican Diaspora in support of Jamaica's Vision 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
Omar's heritage of Jamaican and Panamanian ancestry led him to search for non-traditional answers to his own PTSD and trauma issues in the early 1990's. His search eventually took him to Mexico where he underwent 30 days of fasting, isolation, and intensive sacred mushroom work under curandero guidance. Now with over 20 years of mushroom experience he is returning to Jamaica to collaborate with a variety of organizations on projects that promote responsible sacred medicine use and equitable access to plant-based therapies for all. In addition to medicine work, he will be spearheading the building of DPS's Jamaica-based sacred medicine center and eco-community.
Omar offers private coaching, sacred medicine guidance, and integration services that focus on the daily practical application of the psychedelic experience, mindfulness, and overcoming generational trauma.
