“At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” – Lao Tzu
Terence McKenna postulated that our prehistoric ancestors evolved into modern-day humans after consuming psychedelic mushrooms… Now with humankind’s increasingly sophisticated cognitive processes and capacities, we have the opportunity to make conscious choices about our growth, transformation, and evolution – enhanced and catalyzed through the use of psychedelics. Psychedelic experiences have capabilities that include tempering the autonomic nervous system, reducing anxiety, promoting a sense of relaxation, decreasing the activity in the default mode network, interrupting rigid cognitive patterns, reconsolidating memories, allowing insights to surface, enhancing problem solving, discharging trauma from the physical body, eliciting mystical transcendent states, and reawakening to wholeness and connection to the eternal. Historically sacred, psychedelic experiences should be approached with respect, contemplation, skill, and education. Preparation for psychedelic therapy begins well before the actual ceremony, creating a safe container, establishing a strong and trusting therapeutic alliance between therapist and client, and planning through intention setting, mindfulness practices, and resourcing. Therapeutic techniques are incorporated before, during, and after the psychedelic session. Following the psychedelic experience is the important work of integration. Integration consolidates the wisdom, visions, and awareness culminating from the psychedelic session. Integration is an on-going process, creating a plan to include habits, practices, and disciplines into a consistent routine that supports a commitment to transformation and conscious evolution.
