Entheogenic Counseling for those looking for integration

Another avenue that has been used to awaken from ordinary consciousness is the use of entheogens.  Those who have used entheogens may experience difficulty in discovering how such extraordinary experiences can be assimilated into their everyday life so that they live more fully and effectively in the world.  Dr. Ajaya is available to guide those who are seeking such integration. He also mentors professionals who are learning to become psychedelic therapists.

Entheogens and Self Realization

Comment from a Client

I feel so much gratitude and love for you, thinking of how I, almost exactly 20 years ago, sought you out, after a wild and life-changing entheogen experience. Your guidance and support was so calming and foundational for me then and throughout all these years, especially during times of questioning and crisis--like when I left the cultic group and system I was involved with a few years back.

The simplicity, depth and profundity of your presence and approach remains my back drop and home, underneath and permeating all that I've learned and explored and experienced. It is lovely to feel into that unreserved love here now, available and ever-new, as I sit at my office window in San Francisco, hearing the gentle commotion of Clement street below.

The Role of Entheogens in Becoming a Whole/Healed Human Being

Catalyst Collective
3847 W. North Ave., Chicago, IL

Dr. Ajaya speaks as part of the C3 Speaker Series. We will explore how an integration of spiritual practices, psychotherapy, receiving bodywork, and using psychedelics in an optimal setting can lead to lasting and profound changes in our personality structure and our sense of well being. The use of psychedelics in combination with these other practices enhances our capicity to shed ongoing suffering and a limited sense of ourselves. Psychedelic experiences alone can lead us to a revisioning of who and what we are, but these experiences may be temporary and not integrated into our everyday lives. When entheogens are used in the context of these other ways of self discovery, a catalytic or synergistic effect can be created freeing us from non-functional patterns and leading to greater self revelation.
