We believe in the power of plant medicines to create social and personal change when worked within an intentional or ceremonial context. We offer coaching sessions and retreats, supporting individuals through every phase of their psychedelic journey, from preparation to integration.

Ayahuasca Cards: The Integration Deck

These cards outline and highlight specific lessons from the path of working with ayahuasca and other plant medicines. They can be used to assist with understanding psychedelic experiences. The card deck features 47 distinct lesson card with suggestions for concrete daily integration tools.

The integration lessons in the Ayahuasca Cards are about:

  • self-reflection
  • responsibility for walking one’s talk
  • having authenticity and acting with integrity in one’s actions
  • speech, and relationships

This is truly a beautiful, thoughtful, heart-centered deck. A timely and much-needed gift, so very useful and practical when home alone, before and after ceremony.

Roan Kaufman's Ayahuasca Tarot Deck is an innovative and strikingly beautiful set of cards. I can see them as being useful for people attempting to integrate their ayahuasca experience into their daily lives. But they can also bring enjoyment and meaning into the lives of people who have never heard of ayahusaca.

AYAGOGY: Ayahuasca as a social change agent and learning model

While juxtaposing Indigenous values and social systems with Western hegemonic society, Ayagogy builds a framework for curing society’s cultural ills with antidotes derived from the experiences of ayahuasca ceremony participants.

Ayaygogy, endorsed by Graham Hancock, includes interviews with world-respected researchers and spiritual leaders, including:

  • psychopharmacologist Rick Strassman
  • African spiritual emissary Sobonfu Somé
  • Amazonian Shaman Conference founder Alan Shoemaker
  • Indigenous tribal studies expert and social welfare scholar Michael Yellowbird
  • Rak Razam, the experiential journalist who directed the documentary Aya Awakenings

Working With Our Emotional Bodies and Challenging Emotions
