Psychedelic Assisted Facilitation involves working with a specially-trained guide who uses carefully controlled, psychedelic substances to help you access and navigate your unconscious mind. It is important to remember that while the psychedelic experience can be intensely vivid and emotionally profound, it is the guidance of the facilitator and your willingness to confront hidden parts of your consciousness that make this process effective for personal growth.
The Power of Trust
As we embark on these journeys, our willingness to trust our bodies, our minds, and the skilled facilitators who help us navigate these experiences is crucial. It is essential to choose a facilitator you can trust and feel safe with, so you can tap into the deepest parts of your psyche and face your fears or traumas without reservations. Give yourself the permission to be vulnerable and open to change, for this is where the seeds of healing are planted.
Unraveling the Tapestry
Psychedelic experiences can weave together intricate tapestries of thoughts, memories, and emotions. Often symbolic and metaphorical, these high-impact experiences can show us our pains, desires, and hidden strengths. Facilitators support us in interpreting and integrating the messages and insights gained during the experience. They help us weave these threads into a functional fabric that can bolster our emotional well-being and empower us on our path towards wholeness.
A Personal Path
Psychedelic Assisted Facilitation is only one of the numerous ways in which we can pursue self-acceptance, love, and growth. What may work for me might not resonate with you, and vice versa. We’re each unique, and as such, our paths to wellness will differ. Thus, whether or not you choose to embark on this specific route, I encourage you to continue exploring alternative modalities to find the ones that speak to your heart and soul.
I hope this introduction to Psychedelic Assisted Facilitation has given you a clearer insight into the possibilities this method offers and encourages you to embrace your unique journey towards wellness. Let us continue walking our paths with open minds and vibrant spirits as we discover new ways to embody health, balance, and self-discovery.
Sending love and light to you all on this sacred journey.
There are some clinical trials and approved clinical settings that offer this as part of various studies, but therapists in Colorado are not yet able to offer these services. Oregon does have some governance around approved therapy, however. In Colorado, there are many therapists or facilitators who offer support services for those who wish to engage in the “personal use” of these medicines. Many Facilitators and therapists in CO offer education, preparation support (for their personal use journey), and integration support. Integration support is key to receiving the full benefits of the medicine, as it is important for the individual to integrate the experience into his or her life, understand how to integrate it into the world around them, and use the experience to live a richer life.
