“Psychedelics are to the study of the mind what the microscope was for biology or what the telescope was for astronomy.” ~Stan Grof
The psychedelic experience can be life changing, but psychedelics alone won’t necessarily change you or your life. That takes some work on your part, and psychedelic integration is that work.
The process of psychedelic integration allows you to mindfully prepare for, navigate, and integrate psychedelic and entheogenic experiences, so they can best be utilized for healing and growth. If you’ve had insightful or confusing experience with psychedelics, working with a trained guide can help you further understand and integrate these experiences and information into your everyday life.
The integration process is ideally a 2-part series of both preparation and integration, which can encompass 2 or more sessions; depending on your experience and need.
In the preparation phase we explore what your intentions are for a journey, learn tools to support your body in the process and implement a plan for support and safety during a journey. Preparation will always include intentional dialogue, and may include breathwork, dream work, gentle yoga, bodywork, creative expression, tarot, and exploration of personal ritual.
It is common to seek support only after already having had a journey. If that is you, we’ll begin with the integration phase. However, it is most ideal to work together from the beginning with preparation as well.
Integration sessions are designed of the same elements as preparation, always including intentional dialogue, and weaving in breathwork, dream work, tarot, gentle yoga, bodywork, creative expression and exploration of personal ritual. The purpose of the integration session(s) is to translate and embody the lessons gleaned during a journey, and integrate them into your daily life.
