About this event

With psychedelic experiences, we often come for the medicine and stay for the community. The integrative and connective power of being seen and heard, without judgment in a safe space with others, is transformative. Join our integration circle and tell your story, share personal challenges, and celebrate your wins with others in our intimate and safe container. All are welcomed, wherever you are at.

This month, we're exploring the theme of shadow work and the role it has played in our lives and in our process of preparation, integration, and psychedelic wellness.

Chris Rodman

In 2010 Chris experienced his first plant medicine ceremony; this set in motion a motorcycle journey across South America and an ongoing relationship, healing, and education with the wisdom of the Plant Teachers. Visiting the Amazon is now a regular part of life that informs him ever more deeply about the interconnectivity of all things. It is with great respect, humility, and gratitude that Chris continues his work with entheogens.

He is a certified addictions recovery and psycho-spiritual integration coach. With a B.Sc. in Kinesiology and trained as a CHEK Practitioner, Chris is well connected in the holistic elements of human health and fitness.

Chris is a husband and father who lives in the mountains of British Columbia. He has retired from a long career crew leading in wildfire suppression, to follow and feed the fire in his heart about serving those who feel called to growth and transformation; pointing to the shaman in each one of us.
