entering a new paradigm

Conventional western medical and mental health paradigms are proving to be limited in their understanding of entheogenic experiences and states. Most of Western culture’s medical and psychological paradigms do not have adequate tools to understand and work with the rich, deep and at times intense experiences and insights from entheogenic states of consciousness. Thus, many times important learning and healing opportunities are lost or missed. As more and more individuals are looking to indigenous healing practices in order to heal physical, emotional and psychological challenges or for spiritual development, a new approach to wellness and integration these experiences into the western psyche is needed.
 

WE AT THE INTEGRATION CIRCLE SEE INTEGRATION AS A PROCESS OF USING THE CONTENT OF YOUR EXPERIENCE, PERSONAL OR TRANSPERSONAL, FOR SELF-UNDERSTANDING, PSYCHO-EMOTIONAL HEALING, AND SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT.
 

creating a bridge

We aim to create a bridge to synthesize western psycho-spiritual modalities with indigenous healing practices with in order to maximize the healing potential of entheogenic experiences. Indigenous cultures’ healing modalities see a person’s well-being as a system that is influenced by one's state of mind, body, spirit, and connection to her environment. Well-being and health is dependent on the way we take care of and invest in these inter-connected domains. We offer services that connect these values with western modalities that have the language, theory and tools to support individuals In creating long lasting change.

We offer individual and group integration services, which lead to deeper self awareness, healing old traumas and painful repetitive behaviors, increased emotional well being, more intimate and authentic relationship with self and others and spiritual growth. Further, we host workshops for integration psycho-education for practitioners and design programs for transformative retreats that utilize expanded states of consciousness (without medicines).

an integrated approach to healing

The Integration Circle was created to be of service to those who seek healing and psycho-spiritual growth through alternative states of mind, with emphasis on entheogens. With the rapidly growing number of individuals around the world seeking these experiences, we believe that developing integration frame works and tools are crucial to support individuals in their healing. We are passionate and committed to help individuals, in a personal or communal settings, to develop and grow from entheogenic experiences. We believe this can be done by having an integrated approach to healing, which takes western psychological perspectives in collaboration with shamanic and other spiritual healing traditions. We believe that no matter the nature of your experience, having the support of a knowledgeable and trained professionals can lead to maximizing the benefit of your experience.

TIC's other goal is to create a dialogue in the wider community about the importance of integration work and the different methods of integration by facilitating workshops and lectures. TIC aims to bring together the wider community for an experience of shared learning, experiencing and healing.
