Integrating Your Psychedelic Experiences Through 5 Levels of Awareness –
A Practical Application

Psychedelic experiences can sometimes have complex or unclear messages that require additional work to clarify. This shamanism based workshop teaches an integration method for deeper understanding of psychedelic experiences. Participants will be facilitated to enter into a non-ordinary state of awareness and walked through steps to integrate the experience through 5 levels: 1- Self, 2- Community, 3- Nature, 4- Ancestors, 5- Consciousness. The workshop borrows from the wisdom of trees and forests to teach tools to use before and after a session. Specific postures and body movements that facilitate awareness will be taught, allowing an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of previous psychedelic experiences.
