The Joys of December

The Joys of December

The month of December for me has always been a symbol of celebration. Growing up, I always looked forward to this time of the year. I recently asked myself, “What about this month is so special and appealing to me?” My memories around this time of the year were always fun with family and close friends. It just felt so good to feel the constant presence of joy in my heart!

Why didn’t I feel that same joy in all the other months of the year?

Ayahuasca Retreat Integration

As I had the pleasure of facilitating a 9-day retreat which included 5 Ayahuasca ceremonies with Spirit Plant Journeys, it occurred to me after one ceremony that I should share integration information for people post-retreat including practices that could be useful to weave into daily life. A lot of people come from different places in the world and spend time drinking Ayahuasca in Peru or other places, and then subsequently return to their regular lives or the “real world”. Everyone has a different experience with integrating the insights gained from their ceremonies and the retreat itself, and it is important to find ways to incorporate the feelings and lessons into daily life experiences.
