Our work at the ministry aims to "trouble" the notion that individuals are responsible for their own healing and attempts to relieve individual symptoms of suffering with a nuanced awareness of the extractive and abusive systems they are in relationship with.
The goal is "good enough" healing that one can turn their gaze outward to effect systemic positive impact.
Grounded in a variety of unique modalities our counseling and coaching work is suited for individuals, couples, small groups and communities.
We focus on building a strong relationship with our clients and utilize all of our knowledge and training to offer a uniquely tailored experience of wittnessing and support.
A relational process of using physical representation to create dynamic visual images of the ways in which wisdom and trauma pass down through the generations of family.
Bringing into the light hidden loyalties and the bonds of love within a family of origin nested within the larger human family nested within the more than human family.
Constellation work assumes that wholeness is inherant to our experience, that we all belong.
It aims to uncover where there is confusion in roles within a family or where there may be bonds of debt and loyalty (for example families bonded through war or slavery.)
Primarily it allows for an experiential understanding of the power of love and belonging.
A gentle approach that follows the wisdom of the body and somatic expression to deeply imprinted beliefs and wounds received during childhood.
Client led this process is not about re-hashing trauma. It is about noticing what is being felt in the moment and allowing space for those feelings in a safe container.
Developed by Dr. Gabor Mate and informed by somatic attachment psychology and early developmental influences on adult behaviors and experiences.
This work allows us access to compassion for our own perceived failings and the choices we have made in life to the best of our ability at the time.
Psychedelic Prep & Integration
This work offers an antidote to the spreading popular narrative that psychedelics are a cure all for modern western individual suffering. We believe there is much potential offered by these allies for collective healing, reconnection to the Earth cycles and generative beauty.
We help people carefully examine the safety profile of various allies in relationship to the individuals needs and risk factors. We also provide education on what a safe and narrative neutral container will look like, what to watch out for and guidelines for exploration.
Our focus on integration work encourages a broad view of the individual psychedelic experience within the context of the relationships around that person. We support people in holding their experiences lightly yet firmly with a sense of agency and alertness to spiritual bypass.
Fully sentient and intelligent beings with great interest in supporting us humans, plants can be incredibly potent catalyzers of healing in the body, the mind and the ecosystem. Containing countless alkaloids, neurotransmitters, nutrients, flavonoids, terpenes, amino acids and many other compounds that support harmony with in the organism and environment.
Based on the individuals constitution and unique bodily expression, herbs to support the client are selected on a case by case basis.
Special attention is paid to the environment one lives in and developing relationship with the chosen plants as dependable allies through ceremonial work and rituals of reciprocity.
Ritual and ceremony that was reflective of natural cycles and forces greater than ourselves has always been a part of the human experience. We encourage our clients to find ways to connect with this rhythmic truth in whatever ways they can. Through encouragement of re-connection with ancestral ceremony or co-creating new ways to engage with the natural world with reverence and awe. As a minister we are able to perform civil ceremonies such as marriages and funerals.
Ceremonies can be for personal healing and we also encourage an outward perspective and ask how our ceremonies and rituals are offerings to "feed the Goddess".
