Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
Both Jeanine and Hans are trained in various therapeutic modalities. They respect that altered states of consciousness influence suggestibility and they are very careful not to intervene unless this is necessary to prevent harm.
Jeanine and Hans have years of experience in working with psychedelics, altered states of consciousness and dealing with difficult emotions on both a personal and professional level. They agree with Stanislov Grof, that the essential attribute of the therapist is not the knowledge of specific techniques, but their own level of consciousness development, their degree of self-knowledge and their ability to participate without fear in the intense and extraordinary experiences of another person.
Intentions, expectations and outcomes are part of the process. We begin the process with clear intentions, yet welcoming flexibility to follow the flow with whatever unfolds during the experience. We revisit the intentions during the integration process, to see how we can bridge outcomes of the journey with the intentions set beforehand.
During the preparation process, we work with you to get a deeper understanding of who you are and your life-path. We look at guilt, shame and patterns together with you and how to get behind the concepts of right and wrong. We want you to enter a journey as a curious scientist, seeing a new mental landscape for the first time and letting the judgements behind.
During the integration process, we enter the meaning-making stage. This is kept open-ended; the aim is to broaden the experience, including a felt sense. We support you to actively engage in making sense of our experience, work through insights and translate them in your daily life. How to embody the experience, to make lasting connections and to bring awareness in your daily life are all topics we work with.Intake Process:
