Welcome to our Psychedelic Preparation and Integration Group!

Are you seeking guidance and support to maximize the benefits of your psychedelic experiences? Look no further! Our weekly group sessions are designed to assist you in navigating psychedelic preparation and integration. With alternating weeks focusing on either preparation or integration, we offer a comprehensive approach to ensure you derive the most from your psychedelic journeys.

what to expect

Whether you are new to the world of psychedelics or have a range of experience with this work, our goal is to provide a safe and protected space for your healing process. To do this most effectively, weekly meetings will alternate between themes of preparation and integration. We are here to support you on your journey. Join us on a path of self-discovery, healing, and personal growth as we explore the depths of psychedelic experiences together.


During our preparation weeks, your facilitators will equip you with the necessary tools and knowledge to embark on your psychedelic experience with confidence and intention. We will explore various techniques such as breathwork, somatic exercises, meditation, journaling, and mindfulness practices to help you connect within and set clear intentions for your journey. Our goal is to create a safe and supportive space that allows to you intentionally prepare for a psychedelic experience. Preparation Groups will be offered the 1st & 3rd weeks of the month.


On our integration weeks, we shift our focus to help you integrate the insights, lessons, and wisdom gained from your psychedelic journeys into your daily life. Your facilitators will guide you through various practices, including group sharing, guided visualization, and somatic exercises, to help you process and integrate your psychedelic experiences. We believe that integration is a vital part of the psychedelic journey, as it allows you to assimilate and embody the profound wisdom and healing that these experiences can offer. Integration Groups will be held on the 2nd and 4th weeks of the month. Months with a 5th week will be an “off week”.
