Integration is a key part of Medicine Journey experiences so that we take the space and time to implement some of the insights that surfaced during our Journeywork. If we move on with life as if the Medicine Journey was solely momentary entertainment or a hopeful quick fix then we may miss great opportunity to invite new ways of engaging our relationships, views, habits, and day to day lives. Integration aids us in engaging and knowing those new perspectives, feelings, and ways of being that Medicine invited. Invitation and allowance of new ways occurs during the Medicine Journies and then from there we get to choose to sink into those wisdoms via daily practice, play, and intentionality.
To integrate further on your own consider…
Practicing Mindfulness Meditation, engaging breath work, inviting self care via baths, talking with loved ones, doing your favorite flow-state activity, going on a dinner date, cooking a nice meal, participating in Ecstatic Dance, going for nature walks, and journaling. These will all support you in slowing down, knowing your truths, and cultivating both human and natural world connections that invite you to stay authentic, open, loving, and accountable with yourself.
During Integration sessions with you I will…
Navigate options that may be most supportive to you with you.
Listen and discuss your journey experiences with you.
Invite drawing, writing, or collecting rocks and nature beings to support remembering your experiences.
Ask open curious questions and invite you to hone in on your perspectives.
Invite walking, standing, or sitting meditations.
Guide you with body or chakra scans.
Guide you into observing and being of the natural world.
Encourage this natural world relationship and learning from beings around us.
Ask you to slow down and engage how you feel emotionally and/or in your body.
Give you supportive resources to engage your experiences.
Create intentions and goals for supporting your day to day life and engagements.
Inquire what feels different or new for you.
