Alta Magazine and Books Inc. present Somatic Psycholigist Francoise Bourzat and somatic healer Kristina Hunter in conversation about their insightful collaborative work, Consciousness Medicine: Indigenous Wisdom, Entheogens, and Expanded States of Consciousness for Healing and Growth.
Recent research into the healing potential of psychedelic substances has sparked a resurgence of interest in LSD, mushrooms, and other mind-expanding psychotropic substances. Yet without adequate preparation and counseling during and after the use of psychedelics, much of the transformative potential of these experiences is lost. This book provides clear guidance for people using psychedelics and other transformational processes for healing or for their spiritual development, as well as for the therapists who are guiding them along the journey.
Written equally for counselors and for clients, Consciousness Medicine provides a therapeutic framework that author Françoise Bourzat developed combining psychotherapy with 35 years of fieldwork among the Mazatec people of Mexico, who have a long tradition of taking psychedelics as medicine. The book guides the reader through preparation, setting intentions and goals, and the different types of experience one may have in an expanded state of consciousness, as well as guidance on how a trained counselor can best support someone through these states. The book then explores the art of integration–the application of the wisdom gained from such experiences into daily life–and how a guide or therapist can support the full integration of a journey after it is over. Enhanced by Françoise’s personal stories along with accounts of clients, the book builds a powerful case for a holistic view of non-ordinary reality and concludes with a heartfelt argument that modern psychotherapy include expanded states of consciousness in earnest.

Topic: Psychedelic Integration
The Association for Transpersonal Psychology (ATP) will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019 with an exciting conference. The theme of the conference is “The Future of Transpersonal Psychology: Acknowledging the Past, Honoring the Present, and Envisioning the Future.”
Innovative pioneers who founded the transpersonal movement will attend and share their experiences and contributions through presentations, workshops, and informal conversations during meals and break times. These creative thinkers broke away from mainstream thinking and established a new paradigm for the field of transpersonal psychology and the many related areas of transpersonal study and practice. They went beyond the then-established humanistic psychology to include spiritual and transcendent aspects of human experience as crucial for a fuller understanding of human beings and healthy living.
