WHAT DO I OFFER?
Together we engage Cannabis or Psilocybin and your body’s knowledge to give rise to parts of self and both developmental and intergenerational healing. We honor your life growths and transitions. We celebrate or acknowledge transitions related to spiritual and emotional growth, aging, name or pronoun changes, birthing, dying, creating new relations, and more.
WHO DO I SUPPORT?
I work with individual adults, couples, and small groups ages 21 and older. I love to support anyone sincere and especially queer and trans individuals.
WHAT DO I DO?
I provide empathetic understanding, compassionate and explorative views, somatic or mindfulness oriented practices, a spiritually and physically supportive container, and plant, animal, and element relational invitations. I orient Medicine explorations with ideas of Parts Work or IFS, Somatic Processing, Spiritual Emergence, Ego Dissolution, Nature, Spirit or Mystery, and Mindfulness. I will gift Cannabis or Psilocybin for our time together as personal use is now legal in Denver, CO.
WHAT WILL YOU RECEIVE?
You will feel seen, heard, and held leaving you more able to show up for yourself, your work in the world, your gifts and expressions, and your relationships.
We begin with an Intake form and free consultation and then start Preparation sessions. On the day of your Medicine Journey I assist you in entering your unconscious and body with Mindful, Imaginative, and Somatic practices. During your Medicine Journey I listen, reflect, provide physical comforts and needs like blankets and water, and encourage the senses, energies, and emotion-based processes you are engaging. I name practices to support grounding and provide snacks when we come to our Journey Ceremony closing. I provide Integration support sessions for cultivating new understandings and embodied knowings.
“Jai facilitates a safe, calm, healing environment for journey work. But beyond those initial and essential conditions, he also expresses and allows for deep connection within yourself for spiritual modes of being. His connection with spirits of nature embodied carry into your own, and his rhythms guide you on a journey meant for you. Jai provides the wisdom, experience, and heart to know how to best be there for you in any way you might need or desire. He has a deep wisdom for the medicines he engages with and for how they affect people. Jai’s intuitive understanding of healing and journeying is truly remarkable; and anyone who is in the least bit intrigued by the potential of the experience of journeying could not ask for a better guide than Jai (particularly for queer and trans people).” – Client Testimonial
WHAT IS THE COST?
$60 an hour. Preparation and Integration sessions are an hour each. A Cannabis Ceremony is 3 hours and a Psilocybin Ceremony is 6 hours. Our time together includes 3 preparation sessions, the Medicine session, and 3 integration sessions. Talk to me if the hourly cost I am naming is out of your reach as I do not want that to be a deterrent. Ideally our 7 times together occur within 6 to 8 weeks.
WHAT ARE SESSIONS LIKE?
Preparation support allows us to get to know each other, your hopes and needs, our setting, and the Medicine. In the Medicine session we dive into your unconscious and your body’s knowings in a supportive setting. Integration helps you digest your experiences and give you personalized opportunity to express and be heard so that you can practice embodying your insights. Prep and Integration times are online and each an hour long. Your plant Medicine Ceremony is done in a clean room in your home or outside.
WHY DO I DO THIS WORK?
I provide these services with plant Medicines because I cannot not — this calling incorporates my nature connection passions, my intuitive and sensory sensitivities, and my personal, familial, and educational navigation of trauma healing. I offer myself to plants as a conduit and to individuals as a reflector because I believe in our collective (re)generative power.
WHAT RELATIVE LEARNING DO I HAVE?
My education and training includes a BA in Gender Studies and a BA in Psychology from the University of Utah, Yoga Teacher Training through Yoga Assets, Embodylab’s Integrative Somatic Trauma Therapy Training, 1 year of Naropa University’s Transpersonal Wilderness Therapy program, training through the Medicinal Mindfulness Psychedelic Sitter School, Wilderness First Responder through NOLS, Permaculture Design with Earth Activism, embodied psychoeducation guidance from my personal therapist, and coaching support from the Psychedelic Introvert.
ARE PLANT AND FUNGI MEDICINES LEGAL?
Cannabis and Psilocybin are legal in Denver, Co. When you partake in my services I will gift clean Medicine, keep you safe, and provide emotional, mental, physical, philosophical and spiritual support as you engage these Medicines that continue to evolve in the legal and regulatory realms.
Cannabis flower blends and even single strains have psychedelic or visual potential for many individuals! But beyond that, cannabis is a wonderful ally for engaging one’s body sensations as messages and messengers. Sometimes our bodies communicate needs around what we can process to find relief. Working with the body can assist in moving through stored emotional, energetic and physical pain. Tuning in to what surfaces in each present moment while with cannabis is key. Movement, such as flow-state dance, small yogic adjustments, and felt-sense impulses, or attuned stillness are invited by cannabis and quite supportive to releasing what no longer serves so as to open to new possibilities. Cannabis and I encourage embracing one’s own expressions, experiences, and ways of being as unique offerings both in session and where possible in daily life.
I believe that many of our symptoms related to (C)PTSD, anxiety, depression and other diagnosis stem from trauma, oppression, or stressful experiences. Psilocybin opens us up to repressed perspectives, sensory engagement, play, historical experiences, and emotions from grief to joy. I love working with people who want to transmute hardships into learning and expansion by honoring and feeling into them — psilocybin asks for that. I love engaging nature, this Medicine, and one’s body and innate wisdom so you unfold and remember yourself, your parts of self, your perfection as is, your relation to Mystery or Universe, and what you have to offer.
