Awareness Guide using the Dreamscapes Alchemical Manifestation Model at Alchemy Door
I work with clients to build a scaffolding around their next big step of personal evolution. Dreamscapes Alchemical Manifestation (DAM) is a model that helps you map your transformational journey -- from inception to integration -- with a 7-phases approach, and in a virtual setting that is personally tailored with images of your choosing from your own specific dreams, visions, and memories. D.A.M. holds an underlying philosophy that the doorway from one phase to another, on your personal evolutionary journey, may come to be seen as an already-present, accessible inner resonance. We only need to learn to relax into this inner resource. Your transformational journey may be a psychedelic-assisted experience, a microdosing protocol, or an alternative vehicle for accessing altered perspectives. Practices of dream re-entry, visualizations, and somatic inquiry can help you align with intuition and prepare you for entering uncharted territory in conjunction with psychedelics... **AND** these techniques can be medicine in and of themselves that can be used during our sessions, as an alternative to psychedelics. In other words, with proper preparation, we can utilize these powerful skillsets/tools/handrails/mindsets as “portals into The Unknown" -- the active ingredients alchemizing intentional transformative experiences.
Trained as a transpersonal psychotherapist in San Francisco, California, I have practiced a blend of existential, humanistic and relational therapy, Dzogchen, harm reduction therapy (motivational interviewing) for working with addiction, gamification of the transformation process, and support for radical self-acceptance since 2006. I have an MA in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology (JFK University) including courses in Dream Studies and Consciousness Studies. Continuing education includes Psychedelics 101 & 102 for Clinicians (Center for Optimal Living, New York) I am a Meditation practitioner and instructor (applied nondual awareness), and attend consultation with teacher Ken Bradford, author of "Opening Yourself: The psychology and yoga of self-liberation." I am a lifelong student of the I Ching and currently reside in Amsterdam with my family.
Work in Progress! "Brainfunk Dreamscapes Club" -- The Brainfunk Dreamscapes Club is a place to show off your wildest nocturnal wanderings. Psychedelic settings work, too, as do visions that come in the depths of meditation… or spontaneously. In order to contribute to the collection, please submit some iteration of your Dreamscapes setting whereby other dreamscapers can enter into it. Initially, all mediums are welcome: 360- degree video or AI text-based generative tools like Skybox and Midjourney, Game Developer tools like UEFN, or VR spaces like Spatial and Monaverse, or even a physical setting that you can record or recreate digitally. Initially, the only objective is to play with recreating your dream spaces and sharing those creations for other club members to check out. Who knows where it will go from there. But to keep it somewhat personalized for those dreamscapers interested in exploring dreams, memories, sycronicities, trips and visions, for now only other club members will have access to each others’ creations.
