Introduction

Are you struggling to make sense of the experience you just went through? Do you feel like the surface has just been skimmed and you would like to go deeper into learning about yourself and how to live your best life ever?

The effects of a mystical and altered state of consciousness linger, bounce around, and effect our waking reality far beyond ceremony or however your awakening has been opened. When our soul’s path has been awakened through sacred plant medicines or entheogens like Ayahuasca, Psilocybin, LSD, or through a Kundalini Awakening, Dark Night of the Soul or Meditation and Yoga, a profound shift happens in the body and brain. This can be confusing once we go back to our regular waking life.

My name is Charmaine Husum, RTC, DKATI, CT and I help people understand and integrate the details of their psychedelic experience using trauma informed art therapy, counselling, meditation and tapping into the innate wisdom of the body.

After my own personal experiences using breathwork and psychedelics to gain deeper awareness of myself, I was left with more questions than answers. Initially, there was a thought that to decipher the experience further and for greater understanding I needed more medicine, more ceremonies, more insight that came from outside of myself. This was counterintuitive to what I knew as a therapist which is that lasting healing comes from within. This revelation made the importance of integration, that much clearer; all of the answers I needed for healing were inside of me and had become awakened by my psychedelic experience!

This 9 Module program is intended to continue the relationship to the healing you touched on. In this program, you are invited to explore and integrate your soul opening experience. Throughout this course we will hold the portal open for more learning to flow through you, integrating your experience into lasting life changes to continue your healing journey. I invite you to follow your own path of integration with me, accessing your body’s innate wisdom.

My personalized approach to integration uses a trauma informed lens, which I feel is fundamental in integration work as it is often our past traumas brought up to be healed during non-ordinary states. This course follows the three stage healing technique first outlined by Judith Herman (1992) and used by countless other trauma therapists.

In this course you will learn new ways of being in the world by using the wisdom of recent discoveries in Neuroscience and Neuroplasticity, examining your dreams, your art work, allowing the magic of sacred geometry to balance both hemispheres of the brain, relaxing the nervous system through meditation and yoga and tapping into the innate wisdom of the body to create new tools that will help you thrive in life.

With an awareness of the neuroscientific restructuring that happens in the brain during non-ordinary states we will use the benefits of Art therapy and Kundalini yoga, which do the same, to create and strengthen the new neuropathways you have developed during your non-ordinary state. This will work to support you during your integration experience.

So important as well is to include the spiritual relationship to your experience and build on this as we explore the inner states of being through our reflections and meditations. As this relationship continues to grow and expand, however that looks for you, you will create a lasting relationship to the experience you went through that will continue to support you throughout your years for lasting changes to take hold of your life.

The goal is to make sense of what happened so that you may be in control of the shift you have created in life and tap into that strength as a continuous resource. It's through the experience, that being healed becomes the new pattern - to create the life you have always intended. Enjoy the journey, it will be memorable.
