Realizing Transformation : Intention and Integration; The Alchemical Gold of Plant Medicine Wisdom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What I have learned after treating and following up with literally hundreds of patient/journeyers the past ten years is that conscious and sustained attention to Continuing Care or Integration is the SINGLE best predictor for a successful or positive outcome for those using the psychedelic plant medicine Ibogaine in the treatment of addiction. We will explore the importance of Intention ( set and setting) and Integration ) as key ( and often overlooked) elements of a comprehensive treatment protocol.
We will discuss, the essential elements of a successful Continuing Care program? For so many the ibogaine journey is a life changing, occasionally overwhelming experience that after years of addiction can not only be beautiful and transforming but also frightening and dramatic! A focused program of Continuing Care will include an acknowledgement of this profound and transformational experience as well as offering a panoply of tools to process, and to integrate the lessons learned with this sacred medicine! We will address the interface between the powerful ibogaine journey ( i.e. finding one s own language to retain and integrate the experience), and what i call addiction treatment 101 (i.e nurturing and developing a support system, identifying triggers, development of coping skills to overcome said triggers, and making powerful and often difficult lifestyle changes). We will talk about the unique ibogaine 'window of well-being'. the typically 8-12 week period following treatment which opens remarkable access both to our inner angels and demons, along with a newfound facility to fearlessly meet and learn from them.
