Psychedelic Integration Program – Introduction

Welcome, I have created this online program Psychedelic Integration to help you integrate your experience with plant medicines, entheogens or psychedelics into your life. This will allow you to get the most out of your experience and you will have a better feel and understanding of what you have seen.

In recent years I have seen many people around me who found it difficult to actually integrate their experiences in a plant medicine ceremony into their lives. Maybe you have experiences with San Pedro, Psilocybin Mushrooms or Truffles (which I also work with myself because they are legal in the Netherlands), Kambo, Iboga, Bufo Alvarius or maybe another. As you have experienced, these are special plant medications, with a lot of ‘Ancient Wisdom’. Every plant medicine ceremony requires us to integrate the experience. To bring the experience into our daily lives. How do we bring the experience, insights and new vision to our daily lives, to our family or business? In this training we integrate the experiences using different principles from the ‘Ancient Wisdom’ of the shamans. 

Ancient Wisdom
I myself have had several shamanic mentors, during which I received training and initiations. Among others from the Q’ero shamans. Each and every one of them very wise older men who confronted me, sometimes straightforwardly and sometimes with a lot of pleasure, with the stories and identifications that I held on to, but that had not served me for a long time. All this wisdom of the shamans and insights I would like to share with you through this program.

A beautiful plant medicine ceremony, but then what?
A few years ago I felt a bit lost, confused and overwhelmed after experiencing my very first plant medicine ceremony myself. Even though there was a lot of love and bliss at the same time. I had beautiful visions and it was a time of great transformation for me. However, at the same time, after this special experience, I wondered: what now? What do I do now?

If you have just experienced a plant medicine ceremony, you will go through a deep transformation process. Maybe all your wounds from the past that have not yet healed or maybe even from past lives. At the same time, you may have had visions for the future. It is important to take the time to deeply integrate this experience, these lessons and insights. And as they integrate, they integrate and unfold far beyond what you ever thought was possible! Many years later you will see how the insights in your life have unfolded and then you will realise that in the ceremony you have learned lessons that you did not think you needed.

 “Integration way beyond your imagination”

About this program
This is such a beautiful and deep path to walk, a path that yields so much. I have created this program from my heart in which you will integrate your experiences step by step. A program in ten steps based on 7 principles. In which I give you space and frameworks to discover your own wisdom through 3 profound guided breathing and writing meditations. I cordially invite you to follow this whole training, of which the first three parts plus 2 guided breathing and writing meditations are completely free of charge.

Psychedelic Integration Program – Step #3 Excited Non-Expectation

For me, the path of plant medicine is such a profound path full of wisdom and I find it a privilege to be able to guide you through it. It is a deep inner path where we understand ourselves and life much better. In this video, I would like to share the third principle with you.

There is so much more to become aware of and understand than science. Through a deep inner path, as with the plant medicines, we reconnect with our heart, with nature and with that which is greater than ourselves. That journey in itself is so special and joyful. Of course healing ourselves is both difficult and painful at the same time, as I have experienced myself. I have looked at many dark sides of myself and healed so much pain that it came to light. Every healer is also in his own process to heal himself – and so am I.

The third principle
I often looked outside myself when I did not feel well or when something did not go the way I wanted or had hoped it would. I thought I would have to change something in my environment. Stop my business or go and live among the shamans in nature… But in hindsight I am so glad I did not do that, because something inside me wanted to be healed. So fleeing from that would not have solved the problem.

Of course, sometimes it is important to end something in your life, something that is no longer good for you. But I have learned that you can often only make this decision when you have learned the lessons that are in this situation. This is very much about ‘excited non-expectation’, the third principle in this Psychedelic Integration Program. In a way, can you be excited about everything in your life, even if you do not like it? Can you find your own process, lessons and growth in every situation, instead of projecting your expectations on others? Instead of wanting to escape from the situation or reality.

“Truly find your own medicine within”

Watch the video below

A personal example
“This is not how it supposed to be”, that is the story I have told myself for a while. I have three companies, but growing all three on my own was too much in hindsight. They should make a lot of profit right away, but when that became more difficult, it all came down to me and I kept thinking: this is not how it should be! Things got better when I asked for help, step by step. I had so many expectations of life, of people around me, and had a clear picture of what life should be like. It was a difficult time because my expectations of others and of life did not match my reality at the time. Then struggles arise within yourself.

I had to learn to let go of my expectations. To accept what is really there and to stay with it. With two feet firmly on the ground, without leaving it. To see that things, even if they are not how I want them, are sometimes exactly as they should be. To learn from or grow from. Try to be enthusiastic about the journey of life, with all its situations and events.

“You have made long journeys with the plant medications, but then bring yourself back firmly to earth with two feet.”

“You travelled far and beyond with the plant medicine, but bring yourself back after with two feet solid on the ground”

Assignment in this video
My invitation is to close your eyes and turn inside. Breathe in and out deeply and let this principle affect you. Where can you let go of your expectations? The idea of what life should be like? How can I put my two feet back firmly on the ground? How can I really accept the situation I am in? Because that is what we have to do.

Do you want to continue with the Psychedelic Integration Program?
This was the last video of this free training. Do you want to continue training? Further deepening? Deeper integration? More frameworks and support for moments of peace, silence and meditation in your life? I kindly invite you to follow the rest of the training as well, click on the link below for more information.

I would also like to invite you to attend an online ceremony of one hour. We do not use plant medication, but I will guide you through different worlds with the help of, among others, the shamanic drum. With the aim of integrating your plant medicine experience.

This is the last video of the free part of the Psychedelic Integration Program.

Psychedelic Integration Program – Step #2B New Story Writing (Guided Ceremony)

Welcome back to the second guided breathing and writing meditation. I invite you to create a lovely quiet place for yourself. A place where you are alone and cannot be disturbed. Take your time. Through this guided session you can integrate new insights and experiences.

Grab some paper, a notebook or diary and a pen. Maybe you would like to light a candle, close the curtains and get a lovely cup of tea. You are going through such a great process. Not always easy, but authentic. You will find new ways to gain more love and more joy in your life. You live your life from a whole new place, a new vision. Plant medications accelerate this process and give you insights into what might still stand in the way of old patterns, beliefs or stories that no longer serve you. They offer you opportunities for healing, expansion and growth.

Watch the video below


The preparation
Breathe in deeply into your stomach and then breathe out deeply
Bring your attention to the area around your heart
Welcome all the emotions and feelings that present themselves
Breathe in those emotions and feelings
Continue to breathe deeply

The visualisation
Now visualise a vast space like a meadow, the forest, the mountains or an ocean
Feel the nature around you
Make contact with the infinite possibilities we have as a human being
Feel that you are free
That there is no past to stop you

You have come into this body as a soul to bring something to this earth: your Being, your love, your creativity… To find your way in this earthly experience. You can choose how you want to play in this earthly experience, with all the infinite possibilities you have at your disposal. Make the choice from a place of love and harmony and not from (unconscious) fears. 

“Never be afraid to choose, even if you don’t know the answer yet”

The questions
You have this life, what are you going do with it? 
Do you live life to the fullest and experience enough joy and pleasure?
If you see yourself in this vast environment, through this visualisation, what do you want to choose for your life?
What do you want to do?
What is your vision?
What do you want to experience?
What are you surrendering to?
What new greater truth do you allow in your life?
Do you see your true beauty and power? Can you feel this? Can you make contact with this?
Can you say yes to your heart?
Can you say yes to your full potential?

Know that it is also very good if there are no direct or no answers, if you cannot make contact with your dreams, your heart or your vision yet. It is about the process and it is a pleasure to make room for it. There does not have to be an immediate result. It is about opening the door to the new one. That you open yourself up to new possibilities. Take the time to write down your insights in your notebook or diary.

Psychedelic Integration Program – Step #2A Story

Welcome to the second part of the Psychedelic Integration Program. I hope you had a great experience during the previous breath and writing meditation. I hope you are integrating your plant medicine experiences deeper and deeper into your body.

In the western world we are so result-oriented that we often want to apply an experience (such as with plant medicines) directly in our lives. Wanting to change our lives right away and putting into practice what we have learned or experienced. But to integrate experiences, it is much more about being & allowing, then doing something again and performing an action. We are also inclined to subconsciously project what is going on inside us onto our surroundings. We often forget to take responsibility for our own part in this. That is where the healing of a part of yourself comes in.

Integration takes time
Integration is not about integrating into the outside world, but about integrating into your inner world! When your experiences are deeply integrated, you automatically know what the right next steps are in your life. It takes time. Patience will be discussed in more detail in a later video, but patience is important in a transformation process.

I myself have been in training with many different shamans. Among others the Q’ero shamans from Peru. I have had several initiations there, but it does not start until after the training. Then you can apply it to your life. What the shamans understand is that nothing has a meaning, things only get a meaning when we assign it. Daring to let go of our stories, concepts and identifications takes a lot of courage. These stories, concepts and identifications give us something to hold on to in life. But if we dare to let it go, we will come even closer to ourselves, to our essence. There is a lot of inner peace because we have do not have to ‘do’ anything except be fully present in the Now – in the present moment. Admitting what there is, to emotions, feelings and events. Without listening to your mind, which wants to turn it into a story again in order to understand it.


“Nothing in itself has meaning, only the meaning we attach to it” 

Watch the video below


The invitation
When we follow this deep inner path we connect ourselves with our heart, with our subconscious, with our intuition, with our body and our breath, but also with what is bigger than ourselves: the cosmos, spirit or the universe, with nature and mother earth. In this way, our awareness grows and our vision and perception also grows. We do not want to be limited in this by all kinds of old ‘stories’ that we tell ourselves, but that no longer serve us. The invitation is to live out of love, abundance, harmony, connection and joy, without squeezing or ignoring our emotions (including anger). The invitation is to be as present as possible in the present moment, the Now. With everything there is.

“We live in a universe with infinite possibilities”

“We live in a universe with infinite possibilities”

We live in a universe with infinite possibilities. In a universe where we have a free choice to control our lives. Only you can choose a new reality, by connecting to a place within yourself that is much deeper than you may have experienced before. A place where your soul gets space too. The more often we dare to be silent, turn inward, open our hearts and connect with them, the easier it becomes to hear the desires of our souls.

In the next video I would like to invite you to a new guided session and writing meditation in which you can integrate new insights and experiences.

Psychedelic Integration Program – Step #1B Guided Ceremonial Writing

In this video I would like to guide you through breathing and writing meditation. In this way you can integrate your experience with plant medication more deeply and new insights may come to you. Intuitive writing is a powerful tool to connect with your subconscious.

It is important to understand that we are always invited to be and remain fully present in our bodies, with all the emotions and feelings we encounter there. Not to leave it as we often (unconsciously) do in the western world, for example by working hard or seeking all kinds of distractions. Then you are never in the Now – in the present moment. Most people in the western world live mainly from their heads and much less from their feelings.

Watch the video below

The preparation
The first invitation is to be present in the here and now.
– Close your eyes and bring your attention inwards.
– Inhale deeply and exhale deeply.
– Breathe deeply into your stomach and wait for the exhalation to follow by itself.
– Feel what is happening in your body.
– Welcome any emotion you experience, even if it is fear, anger, pain or sadness.
– Release any resistance. An emotion is never a problem, it only becomes a problem when we give it that charge. 
– Make contact with your heart. What do you feel when you do that?
– Make contact with your stomach and intuition (your gut feeling). What do you experience?

Intuitive writing
Now take ten to twenty minutes to start writing and integrate your plant medicine experience. Take a book or diary and write intuitively about your experience. Write from the inner peace that you now feel. Write from the inside and do not think about it too much.

“Welcome everything in the moment as it comes.”

(“Truly accepting the moment as it is”)

Go to the silence within yourself and continue to breathe deeply.
Then we focus on the two most important decisions to make in life:
1. How do I live fully in every moment?
What do you choose right now? What reality are you living in this present moment? How is your perception of your life right now? How do you stay in the present moment?

2. What dream or vision do I have for my life and do I want to invite?   
What dream or vision do I have for my life? What feeling do I want to invite into my life? What is the vision I have for the future?

Observe what is happening inside, what you are experiencing and feeling. Welcome all emotions, feelings and experiences. Write about it.
Also include the following questions in your writing meditation.
– What are you grateful for?
– What did you experience in your plant medicine ceremony?
– What do you want to let go of?
– What old conviction, pattern or story do you no longer serve?
– Allow yourself to have a vision for the future, without expectations. If it comes, it comes, if it does not, that is okay. But be open to it.

You can do a breathing and writing meditation like this as often as you like. You will see that it gets getting easier and easier and that it gives you more and more new insights.

Psychedelic Integration Program – Step #1A Timelessness

Welcome, I have created this online program Psychedelic Integration to help you integrate your experience with plant medicines, entheogens or psychedelics into your life. This will allow you to get the most out of your experience and you will have a better feel and understanding of what you have seen.

If you are watching this video series, there is a good chance that you have had an experience with one of the world’s major plant medications.  Perhaps that was San Pedro, Psilocybin Mushrooms, Kambo, Iboga, Bufo Alvarius or maybe another. As you have experienced, these are special plant medications, with a lot of ‘Ancient Wisdom’. In this video series I want to help you with love and softness to gain a deeper understanding of what you have experienced. Not by ‘teaching’ you something, but by means of an invitation to look inwardly and find your wisdom there. In this training I offer you the space, the frameworks and the tools to do this. Why did I want to create this training?

How I came up with this training 
Four years ago I felt a bit lost after experiencing my very first plant medicine ceremony myself. Even though there was a lot of love and bliss at the same time. I had beautiful visions and it was a time of great transformation for me. However, at the same time, after this special experience, I wondered: what now? What do I do now? Actually, the first answer to that is: nothing. I will explain this to you below.

If you have just experienced a plant medicine ceremony, you will go through a deep transformation process. Maybe all your wounds from the past that have not yet healed or maybe even from past lives. At the same time, you may have had visions for the future. During a plant medicine ceremony you move in all directions: past, present and future. You experience a certain timelessness. It is the place where time does not exist. The first principle in this integration program is therefore: timelessness.

The first principle in the Psychedelic Integration Program
We are always invited to bring the lessons of plant medicine experience into our daily lives. We are always invited to heal something. To let go of something that no longer serves any purpose and to experience more expansion. And then really start to live that.

There are actually only two decisions you really have to make in life:
1. How do I live fully in every moment?
How do you live in the moment? How is your perception of your life right now? How do I stay in the present moment? The present moment is also timeless, the past is already over and the future has not yet arrived. So there’s only the Now.
2. What dream or vision do I have for my life and do I want to invite?   
What dream or vision do I have for the next ten, twenty, thirty years of my life? What feeling does the future give me and do I want to invite into my life? What is the vision I have for the next two years? With this you say to yourself and to the universe: this is the reality I want to create for myself. In this way, your vision will inform you and you will be able to make the right decisions at any given moment in order to move towards that future.  

Watch the video below

Task 1 in this video: do you really live in the moment?
Take a moment to think about these words. Tune in and consider what those two decisions I’m explaining are doing to you? Close your eyes, breathe deeply into your stomach and remain present with what you are feeling and experiencing. Are you really living in the moment? Or do you feel pain or sorrow?  Do you feel fear or love? Do you experience joy or abundance? It is important to realise that you do not have to change anything about these feelings. The invitation is precisely to fully accept and allow what is there. Even if it is terribly deep pain, or enormous sadness. Feelings and emotions that we do not like also allow us to breathe with them.   

“Healing and letting go of something is as hard as we make it”
The thing that consumes a lot of energy is (unconsciously) pushing away emotions and feelings. As well as resisting what is happening in our lives or the emotions we experience. This resistance consumes an enormous amount of energy. But if we can be and remain fully present with these emotions and feelings, even if we do not like them, the sooner they will get a place and the more energy we have left. Then we have enough energy to deal with the situation, event or feelings in the right way. 

Task 2 in this video: what is your vision?
In essence, we as human beings are makers or creators. We also create our own life and our future. We live on a planet in a universe of infinite possibilities! There are always more possibilities than you think and can see at first glance. Our thoughts affect what we create in our lives. Because of negative thoughts, for example, you are not open to positive results and you will not be able to create them very quickly. What you believe in, you will create. So if you do not believe in something, consciously or unconsciously, you will not be able to create or manifest it either. So it is good to be aware of that. Hereby the invitation to make at least one decision in this moment, even if you do not know what your dream, vision or goal exactly is: see yourself living a life of love, abundance and joy in the future. 

“See yourself living a life of love, abundance and joy in the future.” 

Now take ten to twenty minutes to start writing and integrate your plant medicine experience. Take a book or diary and write intuitively about your experience. You might also want to write about the insights from this first video.  I will guide you through this in the next video.
