Join our intensive experiential program to apply everything you have learned about IFS Informed Psychedelic Assisted Therapy. Together we will go through the entire process of preparation through integration in a community setting.

Created for both the seeker and facilitator, you will benefit from both sides of the experience.

During 6 weeks of preparation you will meet the community you will be traveling with.  Together you will participate in peer parts work, exploring personal core themes. We’ll explore setting intentions and working with invitations. And most importantly, we will explore creating your personal daily practices to ensure you have containers built for integration. 

Daily personal practices create spaces to reconnect to Self, for parts to be held in presence, and for integration to occur on a regular basis. 

Guest teachers will join us to support the tools of Breathwork, Meditation and Mantra as methods for supporting the journey inward; whether in IFS sessions, daily practice, or for navigating expanded states. 

Finally, we will spend time exploring prep-points to guide ourselves inwards as well as facilitator tips and tools for supporting others. 

At the midpoint of our time together we will travel to Costa Rica for a 7-Day Retreat where we will have ample time to explore both IFS Informed Guiding and Journeying. During this retreat you will have several options of plant medicines to safely partake in as the center we will be attending has legal clearance for plant medicine use.

Following the Costa Rica Retreat we will explore the many dimensions of Integration. We will explore what new dimensions to incorporate into your personal daily practices, parts to follow up with for Full Circle Healing, as well as how to implement anything your journey experience may have been prompting you towards.

Schedule of Events

Meets on Mondays from 11-12:30 EST

Each meeting includes large group sessions as well as small-group breakout sessions. 

During the large group we discuss the following topics, supporting the overall journey we are taking together. 

During the small group breakout sessions, you will have the opportunity to share with peers your relationship to the topic discussed in the big group as well as have a chance to do a parts check-in to explore your parts needs and trailheads.

Preparation Sessions

All sessions leading up to the retreat will be in preparation for the journey we will all be embarking upon.  Each session will point you towards parts that want to be personally explored within yourself.  You will have experiential opportunities every session to incorporate parts work, personal practices, and small group processing to support you in a robust preparation for the retreat.

Guided Retreat Sessions

The retreat will offer opportunities for several sessions to include:

Integration

Post retreat integration is extremely important to the overall benefit of exploring immersive psychedelic experiences. During the 5 weeks post-retreat we will look at the multiple dimensions of integration and ensure you follow up with the many aspects that may come up for you.  This includes integrating into your personal practices, parts work, as well as activating any new implementations the experience prompted you towards.
