What awaits you?
Over the course of six weeks, you will reconnect deeply with one of your psychedelic experiences in order to identify and embody the insights you have gained in sustainable ways. To support you in unfolding both the challenging and the beneficial aspects you may have uncovered, you will be guided through the integration process in six structured steps. Each week will cover one specific aspect and the modules will build on each other, progressing from intention to transformation. The course is structured as follows:
Step one: Intention
An intention is a guiding principle for how you want to be, live, and show up in the world— be it during your meditation, your psychedelic experience or any other area of your life.
Educational Video • Live Session: Why is it important to set an intention? • How to set an intention? • Guided Visualization • Practical Exercise: Distilling an Intention • Group Work • Homework • Peer Group Meeting
Step Two: Perception & Remembrance
Remembering an experience is crucial to be able to work with it further and let it unfold more deeply. At the same time, it is not about clinging to something that is gone, but about actualizing and perceiving how it is now.
Live Session: Dimensions of Experience • Reconnecting with your experience • Practical Exercise: Externalizing Remembrance • Group Work • Homework • Peer Group Meeting
Step Three: Acceptance
Acceptance is a choice to embrace what is in the present moment. Acceptance is an active process of remaining aware and open to the thoughts, feelings, and sensations that arise when taking action in the service of one’s values. Acceptance is a choice and an active process, not an outcome; it is key to committed action.
Live Session: Acceptance and Avoidance • Tri-fold Cognitive Defusion • Practical Exercise: The Compassionate Mirror • Group Work • Homework • Peer Group Meeting
Step Four: Commitment
Commitment is an important step for personal development. But why should you make a commitment? And how do you know what you really want to commit to? This is where clarifying your values comes into play.
Live Session: Values and Commitment • Life Inventory • Practical Exercise: From Clarity to Committed Action • Group Work • Homework • Peer Group Meeting
Step Five: Translation
Translation of psychedelic experiences is the art of reshaping a message you have gotten out of it. This is an inherently creative process. Things get lost in translation; beyond that, different aspects of a message can be accentuated and thus, maybe even for the very first time, be understood and acted upon.
Live Session: Ways of Translating Psychedelic Experiences • Integration Methods • Practical Exercise: Translating Transitions • Group Work • Homework • Peer Group Meeting
Step Six: Transformation
Transformation can be understood as a path of ‘becoming whole’ and living life more fully. Wholeness is not finite and implies a lifelong process of transformation. A transformational process involves disintegration and subsequent reintegration in order to incorporate each new insight of change. Such a process is sometimes described as a sense of “coming home”, metaphorically circumscribing such a transformational journey.
Live Session: Transformation • Tri-Phasic Mandala • Practical Exercise: From Doing to Being • Group Work • Homework • Peer Group Meeting

Psychedelic experiences can be deeply transformative.
However, psychedelic integration is a continuous process…
This workshop series is a complete integration experience that offers you a space to explore a significant psychedelic experience that is particularly important to you. Your reasons may be various – a desire to understand, clear confusion, make better sense of the beauty and wonder or relieve discomfort of a difficult experience. All reasons are valid – the important point is that you sense that this experience carries a significance for you that you cannot yet grasp fully and desire to integrate it meaningfully into your everyday life.
Footsteps was designed as a complementary course to our 5-day in person intensive course BEYOND EXPERIENCE.
While Beyond Experience covers general knowledge and trains the necessary skillset for an integrative understanding of psychedelic experiences, Footsteps is more about the small steps in-between; the choices you make in your daily life that establish diligence needed for substantial transformation. The main goal is to deeper investigate a profound psychedelic experience one has had yet subsequently struggled to make sense of or was unable to integrate into daily life.
The 6-week online course puts an emphasis on understanding integration as being part of a life practice that can be applied not only to psychedelic experiences, but to any other significant life experience. This approach is rooted in a lifelong perspective of human development including the ruptures and changes, human growth and potential that together compose the melody of our lives.
Next courses start in April & June 2021.
Start: Monday, April 12th at 7pm
