Welcome Cosmic Gatekeeper Initiates

You have arrived at the portal of transformation known as the Cosmic Gatekeepers Entheogen Academy*. If you are ready to step into your purpose to integrate & facilitate the psychedelic journey, you have been led to a sound space.


This 12-week educational online academy is a deep dive immersion that explores the fundamental aspects of creating and holding a safe container for psychedelic interpersonal transformation and integration.  Cosmic Gatekeepers will equip you with many tools and modalities used to create a harmonious and safe setting for journeywork. It will also offer you an inclusive look at ethics and ways to honor reciprocal relationships.

We know how hard it is to breakthrough and begin building in the psychedelic field because of the many obstacles we face.

A Community Led by 
Ankhara Akeru and Diana Riccaiardi

Anjali & Ankhara will teach you how to bring about the consciousness shift our beautiful Earth is ready for.


Collectively, we share over 20 years exploring, studying, & journeying psychedelics. We also share experience facilitating one-on-one & group ceremony, guiding various healing modalities, as well as individual & group coaching.


The Cosmic Gatekeepers Entheogen Facilitator & Integration Online Course is a community learning container for future psychedelic educators and space holders to obtain the necessary skills to establish their offering to educate, prepare, guide, & integrate the safe/responsible, sacred, therapeutic, & ancestral utilization of psychedelics. 

Our love language at Cosmic Gatekeepers Entheogen Academy is to remind you of your power.


Together, we remember to trust.

You might be lacking the community and guidance needed to confidently move forward.

You might deal with societal shame and misunderstandings from your families.  We say this because we struggled tremendously until we invested in some key mentors that inspired us to rise into our roles as educators, facilitators and gatekeepers. 


That’s why we created this program!


It’s not only an online study course but also a potent space to connect and grow as a community. Our community is EPIC. Collective input and accountability are potent keys to this container.


Each class is lovingly crafted to be a foundational building block for your development. 


After this course you will be equipped to bring your offerings and service to those who need it the most.


We invite you to step into this portal with us.


This is a 3 month virtual container designed for budding space holders, light and shadow workers, psychonauts, ceremonialists, & entheogenic explorers.  The Cosmic Gatekeeper Online Course will also feature *many* guest speakers, educators and advocates who have helped to pioneer the Psychedelic Renaissance.

what our students say about CGK

Raven, CGK 1

As a collective we grew. I would recommend this course to anyone that is looking to personally heal or community heal with plant medicine.

Joivon, CGK 1

I feel the curriculum was wonderful. From individual to community the spectrum and depth was amazing.  Im looking forward to continuing my education with the sturdy foundation that was created.

Cristina, CGK 1

The teaching and administration felt very honest and real and was easy to connect to on a personal level.  It was a wonderful experience to be part of and to witness the growth and progress of this grassroots community.

Sarah, CGK 2

This class is literally everything I could have needed to be able to share what I can share now. If I didn’t have this class I would not have the knowledge and experience to participate in this. Oh my gosh THANK y’all. I’m just in total shock
