Integrative practice


Can you imagine a world without certainty?
The wind rises, the wind falls.

– Mary Oliver

Integrative practice helps us to embody our experience after a mind-opening event such as a long meditation retreat, years of abstinence and isolation, plant medicine journey or post psychedelic* or entheogen** use. 

In my counselling approach, my practice of attention is informed by trauma and designed for those who are seeking to bring the insights from their experiences back to everyday connections and activities. 

I am  influenced by Yogic and Buddhist Traditions that I study, practice and teach for the past 20 years.  
 
I come with the fundamental view that humans are autonomous beings and they are free to take their own health-related decisions. So, in order to ensure they are safe, we need to provide them with the tools to use psychedelics properly, without encouraging their use in the process.
I therefore practice  post psychedelic integration in a form of harm reduction, as an adjunct to my counselling practice, and under the supervision of my teacher and elder, Psychotherapist, Andrew Feldmár who was a direct student of a famous Psychiatrist, late R.D.Laing.  
To find out more information on the psychedelic assisted therapy, you can look at the interview with Michael Pollan, or mycologist  Paul Stemetc. To see more closely at my approach look at my interview with MAPS Canada.
 
*The term “Psychedelic” is derived from the Ancient
Greek words psychē (ψυχή, “soul”) and dēloun (δηλοῦν, “to make visible, to reveal”), translating to “soul-manifesting”.
 
**Entheogen- first used in the 1970’s, coming  from Greek, literally meaning ‘becoming divine within’; coined by an informal committee studying the inebriants of Shamans.
 

Price: $140/hr + 5% tax

First session is 90 min long.

Times after that are negotiated individually.

I practice inclusion, so If after the initial session money is the only obstacle to continue counselling, the fees may be re-negotiated. 

"I AM” is a spiritual statement of our responsibility to manifest our particular quantum of the spirit within the resistant medium of our earthly lives. It may be wrong to copy or to pretend, yet the pressures to do so are great. To free ourselves from the depressing compulsion to be "good", we need strength and courage to seek our truth.
