The Mushroom Cave
After you submit an application, a Discovery Session is the first step. We will discuss emotional, mental, and physical considerations and ensure you have all the information you need to make the best decision for your journey. This session also gives us both the chance to honor our intuitive feelings about working together. We will discuss timeline and next steps.
Intention Setting starts during the Discovery Session and continues through the Preparation Phase. We work to get very clear about your expectations and hopes for your journey with sacred plant medicine.
Preparation is a very important component in ceremony and sacred plant rituals. In some traditions, preparation activities may last days, weeks, months or even a year. Preparation involves readying your mind, body and spirit for the experience and preparing your support system for what you may need before, during, or after your journey.
The ceremony involves ingesting the sacred plant or mushroom and experiencing the effects of the medicine. Experiences vary greatly from person-to-person and from journey-to-journey.
Integration is where the real work begins. Returning to our everyday lives from these profound experiences can be challenging. It can be hard to hold onto insights and sometimes those around us cannot provide the understanding or support we need. Integration may start immediately, or it may take a few days or weeks before you are ready to begin. I offer integration groups and private counseling. You may also decide to attend a few integration sessions and then work solo or within your community or family for further integration.
