Check out this in-depth walk through everything you will learn inside your digital course.



Holistic Safety and Preparation

Here’s why it pays to learn from people who have gone before you – we know exactly how overwhelming and difficult it is to even know where to start when you embark on this journey of a lifetime. We’ve also made a LOT of mistakes and learned from them in our own healing processes. 

In this module, we’re going to share a unique toolkit of safety and preparation resources all in one place, so you don’t get lost before you’ve even started.


 We’ll start setting you up for success by going into detail around the considerations you need to address as you prepare to journey and heal with psychedelics. We will get some big decisions out of the way and establish your readiness, with the end goal of helping you achieve TOTAL clarity about where you’re going and HOW you’re going to get there. 

 You’re going to get on the fast-track to learning exactly what health and safety issues to consider and which medicines and type of experiences are right for you. We will discuss risks, and dive into the most common reasons you may be seeking healing with psychedelics, providing guidance and tools to prepare you fully. 

 Finally, you’ll get the inside scoop on how to fully prepare yourself for a retreat, therapy session, group experience, or solo journey, so that you’ll have a crystal clear picture of everything you need to focus on in advance of meeting your psychedelic medicine teachers.

Step 1: Prepare your vessel.

Step 2: Start where you are.


Self-Discovery, Intention Setting, and Cultivating Willingness

We’re here to help you do the work of healing with psychedelics, and the best way to achieve that is to connect deeply with yourself, your motivations, your fears, your desired outcomes, and your expectations. This module helps you lay it all out in front of you so you know WITH CERTAINTY what you want to heal and why.


 Dive deep with a self-assessment so you can move into your medicine ceremonies feeling clear and confident. You’ll determine exactly where you are right now, so you can create a healing roadmap to where you want to be. These sparks of clarity and connection will eventually become the full-blown bonfire of your vision for your life. Who knew creating healing momentum could be as easy as taking time to deepen your understanding and prepare BEFORE meeting the medicines? (Hint: We did.)

 Discover the power and magic of setting a healing intention for each and every ceremony. Not only will this practice supercharge your psychedelic experiences, you might even find living intentionally spilling out into every area of your life. If you ever wanted to learn how to be a real life witch or wizard, you’ll love intention setting. 

 Lastly, you’ll get a primer on cultivating willingness to deal with whatever comes to you during your experiences. While this piece may seem less important than some of the flashier parts of this work, 77% of retreat guests say that the importance of learning to surrender is something they wish they had spent more time on in advance. 


Navigation and The Psychedelic Experience

Welcome to your psychedelic survival guide, created with love and awareness by experienced psychedelic explorers (that’s us!) We’ve got a LOT of psychedelic journeys, ceremonies, and sweat lodges under our belts, and have cared for hundreds of our family members as guides and facilitators. We know what works, and what doesn’t, and we’ll teach you everything you need to know to fully maximize your time with the medicines. 


 Unrealistic or outlandish expectations for miraculous healing in one session are the number one predictor of disappointment and upset after a psychedelic journey.  Learn to manage your expectations with a realistic and honest understanding of how the entire healing process unfolds over time, and the gifts these medicines give us days, weeks, months, and years after a single journey. 

 Learn about the magic and meaning of sacred ceremony, how coming together as a family with the intention of healing amplifies the signal for everyone, and how ceremony and ancestral rituals offer protection, ancient knowledge and healing support. We’re getting seriously spiritual on you, and you won’t believe the magic stories we have to tell about what happens in psychedelic ceremony. 

 Nothing is scarier than jumping into a psychedelic journey without the tools to manage and navigate your experience. This module will empower you to handle whatever comes up in your ceremonies with strength, grace, patience, and a LOT of deep breathing. Plus, we’ll guide you through dealing with challenges and difficult experiences so you feel nourished, heard, and supported. 

Step 3: Into the Mystery!

Step 4: Come home to yourself.


Integration EARTH: Grounding and Receiving

Welcome back, Family. You did it, and we’re so proud of you. Now, the real work begins. Integration is the process of becoming whole, and without it, all the insights, lessons, and epiphanies you gained with the medicines will eventually slip away, just like a dream. In this module, you’ll discover why integration is the most important part of your relationship with psychedelic medicines. We’ll guide you every step of the way while you’re fully supported and loved in a judgment-free community.


 Get exclusive access to our unique integration formula, The Magic Mirror Method, which will forever be in your toolbox for all your future psychedelic healing journeys. 

 Practice deep relaxation and grounding through breathwork, meditation, yoga nidra, and experiential art sessions to fully receive and download everything you can from your ceremony.   

 Identify areas where you can improve your physical wellness, and learn to understand the language of the medicines and your body.


Integration WATER: Processing, Feeling, and Embodiment

Here, you’ll develop a foundational skill set for processing, understanding, and yes, FEELING your feelings. As you allow, honor, feel, and release big emotions, you’ll create space within yourself for all sorts of wonderful things to sprout and grow. You’ll feel empowered to engage with your emotions in healthy ways, inviting freedom and confidence to be who you truly are. Best of all, you’ll start cultivating a deeper relationship with yourself, which will improve EVERYTHING in your life. 


 First off, we’ll sift through your emotional landscape, identifying what belongs to you and what doesn’t. We’ll build on the grounding work we mastered in the previous module and begin to process your full spectrum of feelings.

 Experience somatic embodiment, breathwork, and movement sessions to encourage trust in yourself, help you connect to and feel your emotions more deeply, all in safe and supported ways. 

 Understand the meaning and message of emotional signals, and learn techniques to improve your emotional health and stay in your heart. 

Step 5: Feel all the things.

Step 6: Master your mindset.


Integration AIR: Analyzing, Understanding,
and Commitment to Action

Now that you’re a grounded, embodied, emotionally engaged psychedelic super ninja, it’s time to level up even more. Air represents the mind, and this is where a lot of us get stuck, time and time again. Now, we take action to build the changes we want into our lives one step at a time.

It’s time to master your mindset and connect to and observe your shadow.  


 From becoming the observer to creating a mind map to show you EXACTLY how your narratives play out, you’ll learn advanced techniques to truly understand how and why your mind behaves the way it does, and how to return to center when you don’t agree with the stories it’s telling you.

 Identify and commit to an action plan of supportive, sustainable practices that work for you (even if you’ve never meditated or had any daily practices before, or haven’t been able to stick to them.)

 Gain the skill, tools, and confidence to master your mind, be present in the moment, experience the now, and let go of attachment.


Integration FIRE: Releasing, Shifting Perspective,
and Walking in Alignment

Fire is both the destroyer and the creator. This is where shit gets real. It’s time to clear out all the things that are no longer serving you and prepare yourself for a new era, where you’ll shift your focus inward and enhance your growing spiritual connection. This is where you become self-healing as you nurture your inner child and love your shadow. 


 Recognize and honor your intrinsic value through transformational inner child and shadow work.

 Shift from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset as you let go of achievement based value, and embrace your divine deserving in a releasing ritual.

 Create your unique, personalized integration practice and self-care plan, laying the foundation for living in your purpose.

Step 8: We are family.


Building Foundations for Ongoing Success

It’s almost time to leave the nest, but first, we will make certain that you’re fully prepared and equipped to succeed long beyond the 12 weeks of this course. We will help you deeply connect to your new vision for your life, and ensure that you understand all the pieces of creating this new reality for yourself. We’ll solidify the importance of being an active member of a community and getting ongoing support, whatever that looks like for you.


 Get crystal clear on your new vision for your life (and set yourself up for success through consistency, commitment, and compassion.)

 Discover where your boundaries are and learn how to uphold them with graceful power.

Embrace your place in community, and learn to be the medicine for everyone around you, especially yourself.


High Maintenance

Congrats! You made it, and wow, you have done some very impressive work, my friend. It’s time to celebrate, and the best way to do that is to keep the magic going, spreading, and growing into your life, every single day.

For some people, this is the most exciting part of the course. You’re graduating into maintenance DIY integration mode! For others, it’s scary to think of going back out there on your own and possibly losing all the progress you’ve made without your support system. 

Never fear, wherever you land on the spectrum, this final module will give you the big picture details on what to expect as you take flight and soar with purpose into your new vision. 

Also, you have lifetime access to this course, so you can revisit and reconnect to us any time you need to!


 Having raised your vibration, you’ll feel educated, alive, and empowered to continue your spiritual and healing journey.

 Understand the phases of integration, spiritual emergence, and what to expect as you implement changes into your life going forward.

 Give back by being in service to your community and discover how helping others is the highest gift we can give as we walk the spiritual path.

“Sinclair is a loving, kind, beautiful soul who truly gives her all when it comes to helping with the healing of every soul she encounters, because she is always willing to do the healing within herself. As someone who has worked side by side with Sinclair, when it comes to taking and integrating the sacred medicine, I can say that she walks a path of humbleness, grace, and willingness to support anyone who might need help on their journey by being a beautiful companion, and most importantly, a friend. I highly recommend working with her!”

“Sinclair and John are one of the most authentic duos to get the blessing to convene with. They speak from a place of direct experience through shadows of addiction and trauma to be able to shine light onto others’ experiences. Their energies act as a comforting hand to hold.

John’s gentle, yet strong demeanor matched with Sinclair’s feisty confidence provides the perfect whirlwind of nurturement to heal by. They both have opened doors for me for my own path and it is an honor to call them family.”
