      So far I have taken part in two treatments with Niko the first being a one-on-one experience and the second being a group overnight experience.

      I’m clinically diagnosed with cptsd and have gone through therapy throughout my whole entire life. It’s always been a struggle to just be alive and to feel any form of connection. After doing quite a lot of research into mushrooms in particular and the benefit I finally decided to take the plunge and found North star Passage. The first treatment I did was uncomprehendably profound. It was like having a 5-hour grieving session for my life. I was able to feel the grief that I have barricaded from myself in a way that was needed.
      Today after having two different sessions it actually feels like I might have a life ahead of me. I’m still going to continue doing treatment and sessions working hand in hand with my therapist but it actually feels like there’s a way to move forward. I can’t recommend this more. What Niko is providing is invaluable.

      As I write this review I am listening to the music that was played in my time with Niko and i am transported back to this beautiful yert in the forest that was where a major transformation happened to me…my time with Niko was my first ever guided experience and I hit the jackpot. There is so much to say about Niko…he is a kind, loving and knowledgeable individual…he is definitely a master of his craft. Niko pays attention to every detail so you can experience the full power of the mushroom…I did a two day one on one session with Niko and have found it to better than any talk therapy I have ever experienced. Niko’s yert is situated amongst the trees in a beautiful forest right outside Vancouver, Wa. The space that Niko created is an environment that is safe, secure and full of love. I was blown away by my experience with Niko…the integration phone call pre and post session helped prepare me for the experience which have gone a long way in the process…the ceremony it self was AMAZING…I have learned so much and look forward to learning more as I plan to make an annual pilgrimage from the east coast. In my opinion you can not go wrong with Niko. I consider Niko a friend now and he will forever hold a special place in my heart…

      I met Niko almost a year ago when I was in search of a “trip sitter” to be with me during my first psychedelic session. My hope for using plant medicines was to gain deeper insight into my subconscious to aid in choosing a new direction in several key areas of my life. Niko proved to be so much more than a companion by my side; he was and still is a dynamic, principled, and devoted spiritual guide. As we’re all learning, the use of plants to alter our state of consciousness can take shape as a clinical event, a form of entertainment, or in my case, metaphysical healing that is ongoing today and has evolved into a soul-awakening practice.

      Niko brings to bear his personal soul-centered experience with South American indigenous peoples. His years of experience and apprenticeships with medicine healers and shamans guide his approach to assisting others including, if so desired, healing through the mindful use of plant medicine combined with prayer, song, and rhythmic instruments.

      Niko’s work with me, which continues to this day, centers on healing personal relationships and increasing self-actualization (me, knowing and being, me), though he is fast becoming well-known for healing work in many health-affirming stages in our personal journies including healing pain from the past, and supporting improvements in depression, physical ailments, and addiction.

      I consider my work with Niko to be a personal blessing and am forever grateful for his talent and skill in the healing arts of plant medicine.
