Integration Through Human Connection - An Integration Practices Workshop with Iris Klein
Dr. Gabor Mate says that it is through the way others experience us in the everyday that we can truly tell if we have properly integrated our psychedelic experiences. Surely it is through the reflections we provide each other that we discover ourselves. Processing and integration of emotions/feelings from the psychedelic experience is a foundation of psychological and spiritual healing attained through mindful psychedelic engagement. Though there is often a deep understanding of the need for emotional revelation in relationships, many of us lack the practical skills that can help us to “keep it real” with others.
This interactive workshop presents the exercise of fostering human connection, helping us better acquaint with our emotional life by being in the present with our partner. The workshop begins with a five minute guided meditation that grounds, connects and centers the students. This meditation creates an inclusive environment where the students feel safe and supported. Students will have an opportunity to actively partake in this heart-opening exercise, learning a skill that can be used in every relationship as we practice seeing, hearing and validating others with honoring our own needs and remaining true to ourselves. Originally developed for actors, through a series of conscious and specific changes the instructor brings it to the heart to remind us that authentic connection is the cornerstone of our human experience.
