Psychedelic experiences encompass a fascinatingly wide range of human experiencing. They can have aesthetic qualities, magnify the perception of personal conflicts, point towards unforeseen possibilities, bring back childhood memories, let trauma resurface, or reveal spiritual dimensions. Such experiences can have a positive, easy to accept character (e.g., the experience of being connected to the surrounding nature) or represent a challenge through their strangeness and emotional intensity. But why do we search for experiences like that in the first place?
If we want to utilize these experiences for personal and societal development, psychedelic integration is a crucial part of the process. It is about being able to deal with changing states of consciousness and letting them influence our lives beneficially. More than merely “psychedelic aftercare,” we view integration as a value-based attitude, in which we engage with psychedelic experiences to create meaningful change.
What awaits you?
In BEYOND EXPERIENCE you will participate in a guided group process, aiming to facilitate personal explorations through a diverse set of methods, knowledge transfer, and an opportunity to connect with like-minded people. You will be instructed to work on your own values and understand biographical patterns, which will support you in improving your individual handling of psychedelic experiences.
The practical techniques used in this course range from variations of automatic writing, intensive music trances, working with self-aspects, hypnotherapeutic trance journeys to mindfulness meditation practices, creative expression and bodywork. You will also participate in theoretical sessions on substance-related topics, set and setting, trip-sitting & drug emergencies, and basic concepts for understanding psychedelic integration. This theoretico-practical approach leads to a stable and beneficial self-awareness process and does equip you with a rich toolbox for working with psychedelic experiences.
