“For what is it to die,
But to stand in the sun and
melt into the wind?
And when the Earth has claimed our limbs,
Then we shall truly dance.”
Hallow tree reaches and bends.
Hallow tree is cradled in father sky arms.
Hallow tree is deeply rooted.
Hallow tree is nestled in mother’s heart and belly.
Hallow tree holds onto both heaven and earth.
The large limbs and trunk
match the root system.
Hallow tree matches above and below.
Hallow tree holds the earth.
Hallow tree rides water, sun, and wind.
Hallow tree dances the storm, the drought, and flood.
If you pulled hallow tree
You are being reminded that you are connected
to heaven and earth.
Re-Member your royal lineage of
Mother Earth and Father Sky.
Like the tree of life,
you serve all:
Worm, Ant, Spider, Squirrel, Deer, Bear, Owl.
Your wisdom connects to
the core of mother earth.
Your presence reaches beyond the sky.
We all come from mama.
You recharge from connecting to the earth.
Just sink into her.
She freely offers her nourishment.
Embrace your power by connecting to Father Sky.
Reach out, extend, be vulnerable.
Take a risk and be human,
You’re an endless cycle of
giving and receiving.

Right now is an exciting time to be alive. We live in a state of paradox. We have an abundance of technology at our fingertips. Despite our ability to connect to a world of people, places and information, humanity is plagued with depression, PTSD, and addiction. As western medicine fails to restore human resilience and wholeness, psychedelic medicine has proven to be extremely effective in treating human suffering. We are in a time of global upheaval and face challenges that range from climate change to political anarchy. Integration is how we find our center in the midst of chaos. As adults we know change is our only constant.
Integration therapy is the process of honoring our innocence, standing in our integrity, discovering choices, and knowing that simply being present is our greatest gift to humanity.
We become stronger from conflict when we face our fears, wrestle our monsters, and accept our humanness.
“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.”
It’s possible that fragmenting ourselves by race, socioeconomic group, religious identity, and sexual orientation causes distress. Unifying our mind, body, and spark of life brings us grace and ease.
Many people think of psychedelics as relics from the hippie generation or something taken by ravers and music festival-goers, but they may one day be used to treat disorders ranging from social anxiety to depression, according to research presented at the annual convention of the American Psychological Association.
“Combined with psychotherapy, some psychedelic drugs like MDMA, psilocybin and ayahuasca may improve symptoms of anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder,” said Cristina L. Magalhaes, PhD, of Alliant International University Los Angeles, and co-chair of a symposium on psychedelics and psychotherapy. “More research and discussion are needed to understand the possible benefits of these drugs, and psychologists can help navigate the clinical, ethical and cultural issues related to their use.”
Transpersonal Psychology bridges the gap between science and spirituality, and honors that we are spirits seeking our unique human experience.
I help you melt fear and resistance for rapid evolution. Living inside a chaotic childhood I was blessed to encounter psychedelics in my early teens. The psychedelic experiences were in the context of self discovery. In the absence of belonging to family, home and consistency, I found an abundance of Synchronicity and Spirituality with the assistance of psychedelics.
