Psychedelic Medicine

Altered-states of consciousness may support unintegrated aspects of our psyche, across all timelines, to better understand and support a present misalignment in the ordinary state, allowing us to integrate and embody all aspects of the psyche.

Psychedelic medicine, also known as consciousness medicine, is the facilitation of altering one’s consciousness into a non-ordinary state of being. By altering our state of consciousness we may become aware of unintegrated aspects of our psyche, across all timelines of past, present and future, for the purpose of understanding and supporting a present misalignment in the ordinary state of being. This allows us to integrate and embody all aspects of the psyche. Scientifically this is done through various mediums (psychedelics, drumming, chanting, meditation, etc.) in suspending the default mode network of the brain, or in psychology we call this the ego. Once we temporarily suspend the ego, we may become receptive to mystical experiences, mythological, archetypal collective unconscious material that may be therapeutic and even life-changing.

Benefits of psychedelic medicine include and are not limited to:

  • Reduce mental health related symptoms
  • Anti-inflammatory protective factors
  • Regenerate neuroplasticity
  • Improvement in mood
  • Sense of renewal
  • Personal growth

Psychedelic Toad Ceremony
(5-MeO-DMT) (Bufo Alvarius)

Bufo Alvarius is facilitated within the beautiful land of Mexico.  5-MeO-DMT is a psychoactive compound found in several plants and in high concentrations in the Bufo Alvarius toad venom. Sometimes this toad venom is referred to as “The God Molecule.”  The toad venom is a milky white substance that is excreted from the parotid glands of the Sonoran Desert Toad. It is composed of approximately 15%-20% 5-MeO-DMT, bufotenine (5-HO-DMT), and a mixture of 20+ alkaloids.

When this dehydrated secretion is burned and the user inhales the vapors released, it can be one of the most powerful psychoactive properties available on earth.  A light dose of 5-MeO-DMT has the equivalent of a large dose of Psilocybin, creating an intense mystical experience.  The medicine is short-acting and ranges from 15-45 minutes in length. The effects of smoking psychedelic toad medicine include ego dissolution, deep emotional release, feelings of leaving the physical body, and can sometimes include spiritual visions. 

5-MeO-DMT and Bufotenine are both potent naturally-occurring entheogens. The effects take place an estimated 5-10 seconds after smoking the vaporised venom, and it produces an intense mystical experience. Although the experience is over within 20 to 40 minutes, people describe experiencing a powerful ego-dissolution that often leads to a feeling of being connected to everything in existence, and a feeling of oneness.

A Bufo ceremony is often reported as a life-altering experience, causing intense and relatively short-lived effects that are powerfully transformative. Participants often report that it feels like a near death and rebirth experience. A Psychedelic Toad Medicine Ceremony (5-MeO-DMT) is the best way to experience ego death. When administered in the appropriate setting with integration therapy, it can be the death of negative thought patterns, and self-destructive behaviors.

5-MeO-DMT ceremonies include group and individual sessions of integration therapy.  Optional ongoing group integration is offered.

Breathe Ceremony

Breathwork may evoke steady, deep, meditative states of breathing.  Oftentimes breathwork uses intense, active hyperventilation to induce a profound shift in awareness. 

The most popular forms of breathwork involve hyperventilation. This is a technique that involves periods of heavy, exaggerated breathing, sometimes using the whole body. The hyperventilation is then followed by a period of either holding the breath, or of slow and controlled breathing. 

People find that this intense bodily activation can bring on altered states of consciousness, and many people engage in breathwork in order to feel euphoria and joy. 

However, breathwork can also bring up traumatic experiences. Just like with psychedelics, intense hyperventilation can cause people to revisit past memories or encounter their shadow sides. Some people say they have even witnessed their own birth trauma during some forms of breathwork and others have shared reliving experiences from their ancestors!

Research has informed us that breathwork may support an increase in self-awareness supporting character temperament. 

Being able to confront your trauma in a very safe environment with a safe method can be very healing.  Breathwork is mostly safe – unless you have a heart condition, suffer from seizures, or have a history of aneurysms. 

There are various benefits to breathwork, both physical and emotional. Physical health benefits of breathwork may include:

  • Balanced blood pressure
  • More time in deep sleep
  • Reduction of PTSD and feelings of trauma
  • Stronger respiratory function
  • Better immune system
  • Release of stress hormones from your body

Emotional benefits may include:

  • Balanced blood pressure
  • More time in deep sleep
  • Reduction of PTSD and feelings of trauma
  • Stronger respiratory function
  • Better immune system
  • Release of stress hormones from your body

Breathe Ceremony includes group and individual integration therapy. Optional ongoing group integration is offered.

Psychedelic experiences may provide insights, realizations, and profound sensations that can alter our perception and understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

Psychedelic integration is the process of honoring these sacred experiences with intentional meaning and understanding, allowing us to identify lessons that can be utilized in a practical way to enhance our life.

The evidence of a deep experience comes not only in the actual psychedelic experience, but in the implementation of these experiences into our everyday lives.

The most important aspect of our work will be in harm-reduction and the development of safe mental health tools to support challenging experiences should you have them.  Tools and methods include:

  • Mindfulness
  • Meditation
  • Breathing Exercises
  • Mind-Body Exercises
  • Archetypal & Symbolic Analysis

Psychedelic education in my professional opinion is the most important part of the process when working with psychedelic medicine.  Whether you are a physician, healthcare professional, psychotherapist, social worker, firefighter, first responder, coach, or a concerned family member, we discuss psychotherapeutic ways to support someone that is under the influence of psychedelics.  My consultations are primarily focused on supporting those that wish to better understand how psychedelics might impact one’s mental health.

I currently support the training and development of psychedelic medicine professionals, as a psychedelic teacher’s assistant, for a US-based educational institute.
