Integrated Psychedelic Healing


I’ve recently been reading an influencer who I respect become very polarised in their opinions about psychedelics and I feel the need to speak up.

This is a very nuanced topic.

There are many layers to it.

But fundamentally it’s my wholehearted belief that when used correctly psychedelics have the potential to revolutionise how we approach healing and transformative work.

How do I know?

I’ve not shared this on social media up until now but I’ve consciously used them for the last 10 years as a foundational tool in my own healing journey and I comprehensively understand how they interface with our nervous systems and brains to create lasting positive change.

And here’s the thing, I’ve learned how to INTEGRATE every experience I’ve had with them. And this is the part I feel this certain influencer has missed to see. Increasingly more people are implementing the essential integration phase into their work, so that they can harness the power of neuroplasticity, which psychedelics increase.

Without integration psychedelics can just become another escapism, a way to avoid ourselves as we fly on the astral, gaining insights that evaporate over the following days as we don’t know what to do with them.

But when we give space for embodied integration – we begin to rewire our nervous systems towards experiences of sustained expansion in our bodies and consciousness allowing us to rest into the nervous system state of health, wellbeing, creativity and possibility.

And the research shows that it’s in this state that the healing & change we long for both personally and collectively happens so if you’ve been doubting this as a modality for healing, or you’ve been seeking out psychedelic support then ALWAYS  ask about how they are going to support you to integrate your experience BEFORE you hand your money over!
