Welcome. I offer integrative counseling sessions and mentorship to those on the healing path. My specialty is in methods that induce expanded states of consciousness and the healing that can be gained from such experiences. I support people on their path of physical, emotional, relational, cultural, or ancestral healing, as well as those who seek deeper communion with themselves, the natural world, and the realm of spirit. I meet each person where they are in the moment, drawing from my medicine bag of diverse tools and modalities – to support my clients as they work at their own edge of growth.
It is my aspiration is to support souls that are on the path of personal empowerment through self-knowledge, and who seek greater joy and creativity in service to the healing of our planet.
Consciousness Medicine: Indigenous Wisdom, Entheogens, and Expanded States of Consciousness for Healing and Growth, a book that I co-authored with Françoise Bourzat, is a resource book for therapists, facilitators, and healing practitioners. It delivers a comprehensive approach for the preparation and integration of journeys into expanded states of consciousness. It also serves as an invaluable resource for participants and explorers engaging these modalities, yet seeking greater context and support for their experiences.
“Françoise Bourzat has written an authoritative book on guided psychedelic therapy with important lessons for anyone thinking of either guiding or being guided.” —Michael Pollan via Twitter
A comprehensive guide to the safe and ethical application of expanded states of consciousness for therapists, healing practitioners, and sincere explorers
Psychedelic medicines also known as entheogens are entering the mainstream. And it’s no wonder: despite having access to the latest wellness trends and advances in technology, we’re no healthier, happier, or more meaningfully connected. Psilocybin mushrooms, ayahuasca, and LSD—as well as other time-tested techniques with the power to shift consciousness such as drumming, meditation, and vision quests—are now being recognized as potent catalysts for change and healing. But how do we ensure that we’re approaching them effectively?
Françoise Bourzat—a counselor and experienced guide with sanctioned training in the Mazatec and other indigenous traditions—and healer Kristina Hunter introduce a holistic model focusing on the threefold process of preparation, journey, and integration. Drawing from more than thirty years of experience, Bourzat’s skillful and heartfelt approach presents the therapeutic application of expanded states, without divorcing them from their traditional contexts. Consciousness Medicine delivers a coherent map for navigating nonordinary states of consciousness, offering an invaluable contribution to the field of healing and transformation.
