HELLO BEAUTIFUL SOUL
ARE YOU A PSYCHEDELIC ASSISTED GUIDE OR THERAPIST?
If you are anything like me, you've been on a personal healing path for a while now and you discovered the power and potential of psychedelic medicines. You value 'practicing what you preach' so to speak, and you care deeply about your clients psychedelic experiences. You want to support your clients in the most effective and safe way possible, and you would love for them to experience some kind of healing that reduces their suffering (even though you know you can't control that).
HAVE YOU HEARD YOUR CLIENTS SAY:
"Nothing has really changed"
"It wasn't that healing"
"I feel worse off afterwards"
OVER THE PAST TWENTY YEARS I HAVE OBSERVED A PATTERN EMERGE WITHIN THE PSYCHONAUT COMMUNITIES
Friends, colleagues, and clients would return after a psychedelic retreat or session only to return to familiar past patterns of survival stress shortly afterwards. Initially, there would be a flood of inspiration and joy. Followed by a return to 'same sh*t, different time'. True, many would have profound insights (include me). Yet, the insights didn't seem to stick around and have lasting change.
A Different Approach
HELPING CLIENTS UNHOOK FROM SURVIVAL HOLDING PATTERNS SO THEY CAN EMBODY THEIR INSIGHTS
All of this led me to question the need for post-psychedelic integration before it was a 'thing'. Why were people returning to holding patterns? What was the value of psychedelic medicine? What was missing? What next... These questions have been percolating, and I carried them with me throughout my recent post-grad psychedelic assisted therapy program. And, I am certain, was also behind the inspirational download of a transformational step-by-step embodied process that is informed by polyvagal science, soul healing and NOSC called:
My birth name is Jennifer Summerfeldt and my spiritual name is "Hold The Promise". I was gifted this name during a ceremony with one of my wise mentors seventeen years ago. I too have been on this journey since birth, walking with human suffering. Author, visionary, therapist, leader, and facilitator of transformational spaces.
As your Flowing Fears Guide I blend my background as a traditional birth worker with a trauma-informed psychedelic assisted therapist hat. As a fellow human, I too am unburdening my heart from personal and collective trauma, to hold unwavering presence and teach you a powerful skill that can be added to your personal medicine bundle.
