Guiding Principles

The core principle that leads me in my work is a deep reverence for life

Trauma-informed practice:

  • Upholding safety, trustworthiness, choice, collaboration and empowerment

  • Responding to: the commonness of multiple forms of trauma (e.g. intergenerational, racial, cumulative) in people’s lives; the far-reaching impact of trauma on whole-person health; the relational nature of trauma; and the many ways people survive and cope with trauma

 

Anti-racism, anti-oppression, and cultural humility for cultural safety

  • Deepening awareness of personal and systemic biases, discrimination and power dynamics, and resulting inequities, injustices and harms, and working to transform these

  • Engaging with humility as respectful and curious partners in care, rather than as figures of higher knowledge and authority; supporting self-determination, identity and strengths

  • Upholding cultural ways of knowing and being, including connection with land and language, and the role of Elders, Knowledge Keepers and Medicine People

  • Responding to the impacts of racism, oppression, colonialism and genocide on health and wellbeing

 

Health promotion and harm reduction 

  • Collaboratively addressing root causes of illness, including ways of coping that can lead to illness or harm

  • Reducing stigma, shame, and harms related to coping behaviours, and promoting acceptance and compassion

  • Sharing information that supports informed choices about health, health services and medicines/substances 

 

Spiritual health and holistic approach 

  • Recognizing the inherent wholeness and sacredness of all people, including their interconnectedness with circles of family, community, nations, land and all her inhabitants 

  • Focusing on wellness rather than illness, and supporting our innate capacities for healing in body, mind, heart and spirit

  • Integrating interdisciplinary approaches to care, and including clients’ own support people as desired

  • Respecting and including clients’ spiritual, cultural and community practices 

 

Equity

  • Recognizing inequities related to systemic oppression and discrimination (e.g. based on race/ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, religion, age, ability), and planning for scholarship funding to support participants with the greatest need

  • Seeking to develop community partnerships, to consult and collaborate on program development in alignment with our guiding principles

  • Growing team diversity and capacity to meet communities’ needs

  • Engaging in reciprocity with Indigenous Peoples, recognizing that psychedelic medicine assisted therapies have and continue to learn much from traditional healthcare and ceremonial practices with plant medicines, and rely on the protection of natural plant medicine habitats, stewarded by communities

Price Philosophy

My work wants to bring to awareness three major Western civilization taboos: sex, death, and money. They are the domain of the lost feminine.

Money is not a thing; it is an agreement within a community to use something as a medium of exchange. An incredible variety of objects or conventions have been used as money by different societies.  But in all cases, just about everybody in each community takes entirely for granted their money system. It’s something inherited, and its use goes on unquestioned. In other words, money tends to be an unconscious agreement.

In societies where the feminine and masculine principles were equally present, sex, death and money were not the taboo topics they have become in our modern world. To become “whole” – individually and collectively healthy – we need to integrate these split-off energies into consciousness. The sought-after outcome is to find a new balance between masculine and feminine energies, an equilibrium that honours the specific contributions of both polarities. I seek to light our wounding about money and thereby make it our servant instead of our master.

In my work, I embrace the conscious approach towards energy exchange. I offer my sessions at a specific price based on what I consider sufficient for my time and knowledge to continue to create the environments for us to grow and evolve as a society.  However, each price is an agreement, and my vision is to support those in need and who cannot meet the expected price level (young people, students, unemployed, people in crisis). Money is not the only medium of exchange. 

Your health and happiness is part of collective healing.

You as an authentic self who found the purpose serve society. 

If you need support in your evolution but hesitating due to the regular offer price, please talk to me.
