Training Description

Psychedelic integration is a rapidly growing field worldwide with limited providers knowledgeable in assisting people after Ayahuasca experiences. Ayahuasca has powerful healing potential but without integration many fall back to their old habits and struggles. In this training program, you will learn how to create a safe, ethical, and professional container where deep integration and healing can happen that will last over time. Our proven framework and toolbox will allow you to support your clients to maximize their healing potential.

We believe it’s vital for integration facilitators to have first-hand experience with Mother Ayahuasca and undergo deep personal integration work. This training will give you an immersive experience and a practical framework to apply to all aspects of life. You will go through an exploration of our expert curriculum in an embodied way throughout your journey. Through experiential and didactic learning, you will learn how to work with material that arises in the Ayahuasca integration process. The approach taught is based on the personal experience of the instructors and their practice with many clients. 


Who is this for?

This training is for anyone with a personal relationship with Mother Ayahuasca and who feels called to assist others with their Ayahuasca integration process. The program is designed for therapists, healers, guides, and coaches who want to incorporate plant medicine integration into their practice. Anyone in the psychedelic field who wants to deepen their understanding of plant medicine work (ceremonial space holders, retreat owners, event organizers, etc.) may enroll. The program is perfect for medical professionals and therapists seeking training outside the Western medical paradigm to expand their perspectives and gain personal experience.

This program is NOT a ceremony facilitation course. If you are looking for training to serve Ayahuasca or other plant medicines in a ceremonial context, we recommend you go to South America to learn directly from traditional wisdom keepers of the medicine.

Assistant Instructor
My own personal healing journey began in my early 20's when my body started telling me that something was not right. An amazing craniosacral therapist came across my path and helped me find and release emotions that I was storing in my body. The experience inspired and enlightened me so much and I finally understood that healing was not just physical, but mental, emotional and spiritual so I started healing myself on all levels. Several years later, something happened in my life that and I got to learn how to heal a very deep and layered emotional wound. My biggest tool for that healing has been plant medicine. Peyote has been my teacher, Ayahuasca has been my guide and with their help I became my own healer. Through the master plants of Ayahuasca and Peyote, I received intuitive guidance to go deeper into plant medicine work and prepare to guide others. I feel that the Ayahuasca Assisted Therapy training is my next step on my journey and I am excited to be part of this new beginning. Ayahuasca Assisted Therapy training gives a beautiful and safe container and framework to support others in a deep healing process with the Mother Ayahuasca. I am so honored to add this training to my toolbox to assist others. My greatest desire is to be in grateful service to others, to the plants, and to honor all life as sacred. I have been walking the red road and supporting Peyote ceremonies since 2015 and recently, I started supporting Ayahuasca ceremonies as well. I love seeing how profoundly my life and the life of others changes when working with these medicines. In the ceremonies, we learn to remember how to live a good life but the real ceremony begins after as we take what we learned and apply it to our lives to live a sacred life. I am deeply honored to help others heal and learn through their journey with the Mother Ayahuasca so that they can be free and live a sacred life. I knew from an early age that I was very different from everyone around me and that I chose to come to this earth to help people heal. In my early teen years, I had people come to me for physical healing. At that time, I had no training, but let my intuition lead me as I put my hands over their injury and used energy to heal them. Over the years I have studied various different natural energy healing methods and modalities. I believe that all kinds of healing methods, including plant medicines, have an important place and work together. Keeping an open mind and continue learning and discovering is an essential characteristic of a healer. My education and modalities include Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Reiki, Magnet Therapy, Auriculotherapy, Kaleidoscope Therapy, Red Road, Plant Medicine, sitting with the elders, earth practices, sweat lodges, singer, song writer of healing medicine songs, moon dancer.

I’m a Practitioner of Energy Medicine, Certified Advanced Kambo Practitioner, Ceremonialist, Ascension and Integration Specialist. Every healer brings something unique and what I bring is over twenty-five years of experience in the healing profession as well as the grace to have sat at the feet of many enlightened masters throughout the world. Due to the nature of my work in critical care as well as my work in the shamanic realm, I have an immense capacity to hold space for those who have suffered trauma so true healing can take place. I also have the capacity to help those who have healed a lot in this lifetime expand into even higher vibrations and more enlightened ways of Being. By accessing the intuitive wisdom that enables me to see and feel into your energetic body, I can help you transmute old patterns, move stagnant energy, and access higher realms. I began my study of plant power in 1998 with herbalism and aromatherapy. I began working with medicines such as Ayahuasca, Kambo, Huachuma, Bufo, Coca leaf, Sananga, Mapacho, Psilocybin, Tobacco, Cacao, and Rapé in 2012 and have spent a lot of time in the jungle and the mountains of Peru as well as other places in the world learning from various shamans, medicine women, and practitioners to deepen my understanding and to support others on their plant medicine path. My technique is subtle, profound, and highly effective. Gently guiding you, I will help you recall the fragments of your soul that have been waiting to return and help you return to wholeness. My tools include emergency medicine (ER), trauma and cardiac care, Thai massage, yoga therapy, sound healing, breathwork, craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, womb healing, ancestral medicine, plant medicine integration, shamanic journeying, quantum healing, tantric and Taoist practices.
