Psychedelic integration refers to the process of exploring and understanding the lessons and insights gained from a psychedelic experience. This work is done with the help of a psychedelic integration specialist who provides a safe and non-judgmental space for processing the experience. Integration can take place both before and after the use of psychedelics and can involve sessions with a practitioner who uses either a Western medicine or shamanic framework. The aim of integration is to help individuals make sense of the profound changes that may occur during a psychedelic journey and to facilitate a long-lasting and meaningful shift in one's life. Integration is an important part of the psychedelic experience and is considered equally as important as the use of psychedelics itself.

Integrating a psychedelic experience is important to reap its benefits. To start the process, you can do a three-step journaling process: Reflect in detail on your experience, choose a few priorities to focus your integration on, and make a plan for your integration. You should also focus your integration plan on three core dimensions: Spiritual, Emotional, and Physical. Spiritual integration can be achieved by reflecting on your notion of self, values, and habits. Emotional integration involves processing repressed emotions that may have arisen during the experience. Physical integration involves incorporating the teachings of your experience into your daily life.

What Now?

After any big adventure that deeply moves you, it is important to take time to integrate the experience. Upon returning back into "your normal life" you may want to switch things up. You could find yourself deeply pondering a new epiphany, taking up a new hobby, questioning how you do things, or eager to work through the rocks you have been holding onto.

Integration takes time. Truly incorporating all the lessons after a profound event can be a decade long journey. At minimum, a solid week or even month to just sit with the experience is recommended. Journal, paint, walk in nature, share in a safe space, run, or any number of creativity inducing activities.

Make small moves toward what brings you increased joy. Perhaps you decide to continue with or begin working with a good therapist or coach to assist you along with this new chapter? Be kind to yourself and open to what is possible for your life and journey in it. The unfolding will begin.

Below is information on different people who have presented at the Flow Life Retreat. Many have services which can assist in integration and post retreat continued growth.

Integration Tips:

• Integration is when you start understanding your experience and the potential meaning it has for you—and then you may incorporate the teachings from your trip into your everyday life.

• Integration is not just a tool, but an attitude toward life.

• Use tools like journaling, music or body work to stay in the head and heart space you were in while tripping. Be conscientious about cultivating the time and space to do this—schedule it into your calendar.

• While the “sparkle period” may last days to weeks after your journey, after that period, in the weeks/months to follow, ask yourself, how connected am I to the experience? How much time and space am I still carving out to keep that process moving? Like any relationship, how much time, investment, and presence you bring to it will influence how it will look and feel.

• Integration is not a linear process.

• Accept what the experience offered you—even if it was difficult or not what you expected or intended.

• Get curious about the relationship between fear and love: Often what shows up teaches us about our intention but potentially not in how we were imagining or expecting. What doesn’t seem connected is often very connected, yet we can’t see it. This is where educating ourselves with material from workshops and external relationships can be helpful.

• Remember RAIN:





• Remember that healing happens not only in the mind, but also in the body, psyche, heart, and spirit.

Zia Sichi

My name is Zia Sichi, and I’m a licensed psychologist with a passion for helping others break through barriers to health, wellbeing and a sense of freedom and empowerment in their lives. I have experienced my own process of healing physical and emotional challenges using different modalities (including coaching and EMDR) and I know firsthand that on the other side of our limiting beliefs, recurring symptoms, entrenched habits, and pessimistic outlooks we can find more physical ease within the body, more calm, more energy, more alignment and attunement with our emotions, needs and values, more engagement in life and with important others, more opportunities for joy, and more of all of these wonderful gifts to share with others. It is my goal to help everyone I work with, in either coaching or trauma work, to discover what this means for themselves.
