Life is a journey
best guided by wisdom.

Françoise Bourzat weaves indigenous wisdom and western psychology for healing, growth, and transformation.

“Françoise has been studying the Mazatec tradition for many years. She has acquired an understanding of our ancestral ways and is able to speak about them with respect and the clarity of that responsibility.”

Guide, healer, teacher,
traveller, medicine woman.

Welcome!

It brings me great joy to welcome you to my website.

For over 35 years, my work has sought to bridge the divide between Western psychology and indigenous wisdom. As we watch our modern world rapidly evolve under mounting social and environmental pressures, I believe that inner and outer healing is now more important than ever.

Wherever you have arrived from, and wherever the adventure of life takes you, it is my sincere wish that you find hope, resources, inspiration, and support for your journey in these pages.

Consciousness Medicine is an insightful and inspiring introduction to expanded states of consciousness. Françoise Bourzat combines an intimate personal account with the most comprehensive and practical guide I have seen to transpersonal experience and shamanic work, emphasizing the three cornerstones of preparation, journeying and—of essential importance—integration.
