Integration of Psychedelic Experiences
Similarly to the state of consciousness reached through breathwork, experiences with teacher plants like Ayahuasca, Psilocybin or Iboga can bring insights, emotions and powers to the surface that were previously hidden in your subconscious. While this can jump-start amazing healing processes, it may also come with three challenges in particular: First, messages are often delivered in what I would call the ‘Language of Dreams’: What you experience is absolutely true – but not always literally. As the Oracle in The Matrix says: ‘I told you exactly what you needed to hear.’ For example, you may feel the need to leave your family. This could be the right step in a practical sense, or it could be a more symbolic task: To loosen unhealthy attachments to your family. Deciphering this language on your own is not always straightforward. Second, some insights can simply be a lot to process alone. You may have recalled traumatic memories that you had long suppressed and may need support to integrate them without feeling overwhelmed. Finally, balancing truths you find in yourself with the demands of every-day life can be a hard task. For instance, you may have discovered hidden talents that make you want to change careers, but how do you act on that in a truthful-but-realistic way? This session aims to help you integrate into your life the treasures you bring up from your ‘deep dives’ with teacher plants – in the way that is most useful to you as a whole.
