As a clinician, I possess extensive experience in the use of entheogens in
both naturalistic ceremonial and group/individual therapeutic settings. It is crucial to feel comfortable with setting an intention before the ceremony, and after the ceremony, to be able to integrate the experience and engage in new habits while your brain is still neuroplastic. Ultimately, you should feel grounded, and protected, and have the space to process the experience if needed while forming healthy new habits moving forward. Ideally, after a ceremony, you should have a stress-free and clean environment where you can fully relax and enjoy yourself as you start your new life.
