How to Deal With a Troubling Psychedelic Experience

Plant medicines and psychedelics, used in thoughtful and intentional ways, can be incredibly life changing and transformative. They offer the potential for profound spiritual experiences and deep healing not offered by other modalities. But these experiences can sometimes be very challenging, difficult, dark, or painful. This is especially true when the person is unprepared for the magnitude of what they experience or is working with psychedelics in an unintentional manner. This talk examines each of these scenarios, discusses how to deal with them as they happen, and offers integration guidance for each of the different archetypes.
