PSYCHEDELIC PREPARATION & INTEGRATION

***Packages starting at $2222

I believe plants are our greatest reflection. Plants are our innate access to medicine. Plants offer a uniques wisdom that sustain and build life. Plants are here to remind us of our interconnectedness. We need plants to remember that we are One people. There is a fabric that all plants create and weave together. It is up to us to connect with our Earth because we must understand the value She offers.

My favorite plant medicines are: cannabis, cacao, coffee, lavender, turmeric, tea tree, sage, and adaptogenic mushrooms and psilocybin.

They can be used as an incredibly powerful tool for healing, spiritual growth, and personal transformation. I specialize in supporting people to prepare the whole person for working with sacred plants and provide integration therapy, so their experiences can be sustained through transformation of the mind, body and spirit.

PREPARATION

IDENTIFYING SAFE A SET, SETTING AND SKILLS

Set, is short for mindset. It is crucial that you understand your mindset or internal narrative to support yourself before going into this experience. Setting is related to where the experience will take place. Whether you are planning to take plant medicine recreationally or therapeutically, you want to be sure you are comfortable and safe. Skills are probably the most important aspect, where you can notice where your attention and resistance are, in order to get the most out of your experience.

PREPARATORY DIETA 

A preparation cleanse or "dieta" is a part of traditional Amazonian practices. These are basic dietary restrictions to undertake prior to taking the plant medicine that help prepare your body for the medicine. I will provide you with a holistic mind-body-spirit approach that follow the core pillars of The Makaranda Method.

WORKING WITH INTENTIONS

We'll work together to identify mindset challenges such as limiting beliefs, unconscious blocks, and old patterns that no longer serve you. This will allow for you to clearly see what you would like to work on. Each medicine works with our intentions uniquely. I'll also show you some basic skills so you can support yourself in ceremony. This will prepare you to avoid the pitfalls that come with strong attachments to outcomes based on your attention and resistance.

TOOLS TO NAVIGATE THE CEREMONY

I'll teach you a variety of tools that will help you to stay centered and balanced during ceremony and how to navigate challenging situations when they come up. These are the similar tools I use when working with my nature therapy clients. I'll also show you how to create a receptive state so that you can actually receive the guidance, messages, and wisdom. 

INTEGRATION

INTEGRATION SESSIONS

Integration sessions are focused on examining, exploring and understanding the insights and changes that occurred during ceremonies and what they mean for your life now. Sometimes changes are called for in your day-to-day life that can be intimidating. I will coach you through the process of integrating the energetic changes and manifesting them in the physical reality of your life. 

Often times questions are opened that are left unanswered. Or the medicine makes it clear that change is needed but you're not sure how to act on that or what direction to take. Integration therapy can help you to explore and and make sense of unresolved material from the ceremony and identify where and how to make those changes in your life and more importantly, when not to. Deep personal material is often uncovered or worked through during this process, which is why it is helpful to have a trained psychotherapist with an understanding of and experience with both the human mind and the plant spirit.
