Psychedelic Integration

6 Week Coaching Program

Having a deep psychospiritual experience with psychedelics can be very transformative, intense, and also sometimes a challenge to both make sense of and reap the connective benefits of. These experiences are connective of mind and body but if there isn’t intentional integration post journey, you may be left swimming in confusion or feeling as though the experience didn’t quite hit the mark in terms of depths of gaining the deeper understanding of self you had hoped for.

This program is designed to help you reflect and assimilate the psychedelic experience so you can reap the benefits of this transformational journey you went on.

 It is a 6 week program of individualized coaching, group coaching, and an optional body movement and art therapy based integration circle.

There is a mixed gender circle as well as a self identified women’s circle.

Women's Psychedelic Integration Circle: Focus on Sexuality

Women exploring their internal landscapes through the use of psychedelic medicines is raising the consciousness of the planet. Whether this exploration was recent or in the past, in a circle, individually or with a partner, having a space to weave the insights from the alternate states of consciousness into everyday life is key. Oftentimes themes of sexuality and sensuality may arise during ceremonial context or directly in ceremony. This space is for integration of these themes more specifically.

This Integration Circle is designed for women who have had a psychedelic experience and desire a space to process and allow the seeds that were planted then to bloom now. Psychedelic experiences need and take time to integrate into the psyche and the spirit. This circle will meet on Zoom video.

Note: This group does not promote the use of any illegal substances or activity.
