Ayahuasca integration

Have you been to a retreat with the Queen of the Forrest - aka Ayahuasca - and now you are feeling lost? Maybe integration is what you need right now. While taking the medicine is an important and powerful work which gives valuable insights into your life, your traumas, your health, you as a person, the after work is equally important.

After the Ayahuasca ceremony - The integration

The journey with Ayahuasca

Embarking on an Ayahuasca journey is an act of courage and an adventure with the "Queen of the Forest." This sacred plant medicine, revered by indigenous cultures, offers profound insights and transformative experiences. It's a journey that can reveal deep truths about yourself, uncover hidden traumas, and provide a path to healing and enlightenment.

The importance of integration

While the Ayahuasca ceremony itself is powerful and enlightening, the period after the ceremony—known as integration—is just as crucial, if not more so. Integration is the process of making sense of the insights and experiences gained during the ceremony and incorporating them into your daily life. Without proper integration, the benefits of your Ayahuasca journey can be fleeting, and the profound realizations may not translate into lasting change.

Why integration matters

The after period of an Ayahuasca journey is where the real work begins. During the ceremony, you might confront deep-seated traumas, limiting beliefs, and parts of yourself that have been long buried. The ceremony can open doors, but it's the integration that helps you walk through them and truly transform.

Feeling lost or not whole?

It's common to feel a sense of disorientation or incompleteness after an Ayahuasca ceremony. The experience can be so intense and revealing that it leaves you feeling vulnerable or unsure of how to proceed. This is where integration becomes essential. It helps ground you, process the emotions and insights, and find a new sense of balance and wholeness.

How I can help

As much as I have enjoyed my Aya retreats I always felt that there was something missing. And later on I realized that I missed the integration process. And that is why I decided to offer this help. As someone who has walked this path and helped others do the same, I offer various methods to support your integration process. Here’s how I can assist you:

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

EMDR is a powerful tool for processing and releasing trauma. Many people find that ayahuasca brings up past traumas that need to be addressed. EMDR helps to desensitize and reprocess these traumatic memories, reducing their emotional charge and allowing you to move forward with less baggage. Read more about EMDR.


Brainspotting is another effective technique for trauma healing. It works by identifying points in your visual field that correlate with unresolved traumas in your brain. By focusing on these points, we can access and release deep-seated emotional pain, leading to profound healing and integration. Read more about brainspotting.

Energy work

Energy work can help clear and balance your energetic body, which is sometimes disrupted during an Ayahuasca journey. Techniques like Reiki, chakra balancing, emotion code, body code and other forms of energy healing can help restore your energy flow, leaving you feeling more grounded and at peace. Read more here.

Addressing limiting beliefs

Ayahuasca can shine a light on limiting beliefs that hold you back. Through coaching, cognitive behavioral techniques, and other therapeutic methods, we can work together to identify and transform these beliefs, empowering you to live a more fulfilling and authentic life.

The integration process - what can you do on your own

Integration is not a one-size-fits-all process. It's a deeply personal journey that requires time, patience, and commitment. Here are some steps you can take to facilitate your integration:

  1. Journaling: Writing down your experiences and insights can help you process and understand them better. It’s a way to reflect on your journey and track your progress.

  2. Mindfulness and meditation: Practicing mindfulness and meditation can help you stay grounded and present. It allows you to observe your thoughts and emotions without getting overwhelmed by them.

  3. Connecting with nature: Spending time in nature can be incredibly healing. It helps you reconnect with the earth and find a sense of peace and balance.

  4. Support groups: Joining a support group of people who have had similar experiences can provide a sense of community and understanding. Sharing your journey with others can be comforting and empowering.

The role of integration in healing with Ayahuasca

The integration process is where the magic of the Ayahuasca ceremony can truly take root and blossom. It’s where you can turn profound insights into lasting change and deep healing. Without integration, the ceremony can remain a powerful yet isolated experience. With integration, it becomes a catalyst for true transformation and growth.

Choosing to embark on an Ayahuasca journey takes immense courage. It’s a testament to your desire for healing, growth, and understanding. But the journey doesn’t end when the ceremony does. The real courage lies in facing the aftermath, in doing the work of integration, and in committing to your healing process.

Integrating your ayahuasca experience is not just important; it's essential. It’s the key to unlocking the full potential of your journey with the Queen of the Forest. Through EMDR, Brainspotting, energy work, and other supportive practices, I can help you navigate this crucial phase. Together, we can transform the insights gained into lasting change and deep healing.

If you’re feeling lost, overwhelmed, or unsure after your ayahuasca journey, remember that integration is the path to wholeness. Reach out for support, take the time to process, and give yourself the grace to heal. Your journey is a testament to your strength and your commitment to becoming the best version of yourself. Let’s walk this path together and unlock the true power of your ayahuasca experience.
