Sacred Medicine Journeys and Integration Support
Sacred Medicine Journeys
*I serve the Sacred Magic Mushroom. I am honored. I am humbled. I am experienced.
I am a Medicine Woman and Priestess. The foundation of my offerings is holistic. I call in the forces of Love that created all living things, the sacred medicines and YOU. I pray. Prayer is our first language that honors the many helping hands that make our lives.
I do not hold space for experiences or just a trip I hold space for transformation. My container is tender, thorough and deep. I know how to travel the pathways of the human psyche and guide others to learn how to become their own healer.
My range of experience is in helping others navigate complex trauma, healing abuse, eating disorders, addiction, suicidal depression, anxiety disorders, mystery diseases- every one of these I have navigated in my own life. I have a background in working with complex trauma clinically and personally for over a decade. I have been serving medicines and holding sacred space for years. Entheogens have saved my life, as have really powerful healers, teachers and mentors.
I work with all people. And- the Sacred Medicine work is a return to the Womb and reclamation of feminine consciousness. When we heal the feminine body Life begins to restore to balance and all bodies are supported. You can scroll through my writings here to dive deeper into my view on what we are accessing at the root of our holistic healing modalities.
When choosing a guide it is far less important to work with someone who knows all of the really cool science – you can Google and be in rabbit holes all day. It is vital to work with someone who has experience and that doesn’t necessarily mean someone with a mental health license. You need someone who knows how to create a set and setting that provides safety and the highest potential for healing. The embodied transmission of the practitioner is also important. Do they know how to navigate the thresholds of death and rebirth? Have they not only been to, but have they integrated, the other side of their own journeys? Can they read a field and assess what is happening if there is repressed memory, old trauma, anxiety, past life visions and the many faces of God surfacing? This is soul work and cannot be taken lightly.
The moment we commit to our work together the journey begins. We live within a quantum field. Your soul knows when it is headed to an initiation. There is a cascade of mysterious events that begin to take place within you, around you, and often within your family lines, the moment you choose to make a change and heal. It is magical.
The Mushroom kingdom is family network of Universal consciousness that seeded Mother Gaia with the memory of the original creation story and Sacred Laws of Regeneration and Reciprocity. These little beings sprawled through Her body sharing these laws creating an incorruptible web of Unity consciousness. Within that web lives your unique thread, your unique song, your cosmology and lineage as well as the story of Life. There are few things more powerful than recovering your own lineage and deepest sense of belonging.
It is your birthright to engage in these medicines, explore what you are made of and why you are here in Earth School. They were made for you. Your healing is the Earth’s healing. You are supported to take this journey. You are designed to regenerate and evolve. Thank you for taking this step for yourself.
- We must first assess if there is resonance between us and if this is the time for you in a 20 or so minute call.
- We will work together a total of 5 times- 1 -one hour intention and prep session, the journey (5-6 hours), 4- one hour integration sessions post journey.
- You will receive my Ebook “Holistic Integration”
- There is research showing that 1-3 journeys in a short period of time has great impact depending one the level of healing the individual is needing.
I have a space in Port Townsend if you are coming from out of town. You will need an airbnb or such to stay after the journey in most cases. If you are local to me, I go as far as Port Angeles and Bainbridge Island for the journey. I most often work in people’s homes so they can rest into their journey all day without much interruption.
*The Original Medicine and all of its services operate under The First Flame- a spiritual organization in service to Sacred Law. (website under construction) Choosing to engage in any of the services under this umbrella makes you a member of The First Flame and therefore all activities and sacred services fall within the jurisdiction and protection of ministry. Your donations for sacred services are tax deductible. Blessed Be.
There is a term -“the medicine is always with you”. If we really took this to heart we would understand that the healing we experience in a therapeutic/ceremonial setting is not the initiation itself. The initiation and the healing happen in the mundane moments of life where one begins to viscerally, physically feel a repatterning of old wounds.
Numerous studies, and my own personal experience, show that support from someone with knows how to navigate the many pathways of the psyche determines whether or not the sacred medicine incorporates its wisdom into our lives. We need someone who has been to other side and back to say “keep going, you are loved”.
When integrating we need someone to help us make new choices because the old worn out patterns die hard. In order to travel new pathways away from the addictions, impulses, depressions, manias, confusions, traumas etc., we must be radical in listening to the little voice of the heart, that came through in a big way during our therapeutic session, and choose to follow it.
Without integration what we experience in our ceremonial settings tends to denigrate into symbolic theatre. Without integration we open up potential for more confusion, bypassing, appropriation and ensnaring of these powerful modalities into a fantastical make believe experience. I used to say- without integration we are just in self indulgence. That’s a little harsh. The biggest reason people don’t work on integration is that they really aren’t ready to heal. It takes work, there is no guaranteed timeline, (we can’t “5 year plan” our integration) and the awareness that things will change. Change is hard. Fighting change is debilitating if not devastating.
Integration is at the pace of the body. The body is at the pace of Earth. Your spirit and soul have the capacity to shapeshift at cosmic light speed, but your body- which we all know keeps the score- digests all of this new information in a slow churn. This is so we can feel it all. We are feeling beings. Transformation happens through the lived experience, and we live our experiences through our bodies. It is a great gift to have so much capacity of sensation as a human. When we learn how to navigate our feelings they can become gifts and even be churned into life force. Here is where true transformation can begin.
Life is an onion. It is your birthright to know how to peel the layers without continual pain. Crying- yes, continual pain-no. We are evolutionary, cyclic souls on a continuum of Life. You are made to change. Let yourself be changed.
What Does a Session Look Like?
- Sessions are an hour –$125
- 4 sessions makes the most impact- $475
- The space is held by prayer and holistic frameworks
- I often suggest rituals and homework for outside of the container.
- If you are local to me I prefer to see you in person, to sit upon the Earth and listen together. If not, then we have the technology Goddess at our service.
