Extraordinary Experiences: Imbalance to Integration

An Extraordinary Experience can throw you way out of balance but, also has the potential to expand and deepen your experience of life depending on how well you can integrate it.

An Extraordinary experience can be precipitated by an unusual or dramatic turn of events or it can come through a shift in perception, illuminating aspects of life that were once hidden from


The possible catalysts are many.

Plant Medicines offer extraordinary and powerfully transformative experiences and are becoming more commonly sought after.

The process of integration is one of coming to presence in the body, regulating and calming your nervous system, embodied reflection, coming into deeper understanding, syncing mind and body, and with renewed energy and awarenes transform your approach to life and behaviour.

Integration often requires support and the willingness to turn toward the uncomfortable or painful aspects we tend to want to avoid or disown. For this, compassion, curiosity, courage, devotion, perseverance, patience, relationship, and grounded presence balanced through body, mind, heart, and spirit are necessary so the experience can become a catalyst for new growth, a blossoming into inner clarity, trust, and a deeper sense of connection and agency for new kinds of action.

Extraordinary means Beyond the Ordinary.

Each person’s sense of what is ordinary can be different but, when Extra-Ordinary events occur in our lives, it can sometimes feel like life has been “turned on it’s head”; as though life doesn’t make sense in the same way we once knew.

There is often a strong desire to make changes and live life differently based on new realizations, or a thirst to see, hear, feel, learn, and experience more of life in this Extraordinary way - Or sometimes it’s the opposite, depending on the nature of the experience.

Extraordinary Experiences can come with intense emotions; anything from Ecstatic Joy to deep Grief, to Rage, to overwhelming Compassion… or all of the above and much more.

Extraordinary Experiences can have an Awakening effect yet, if not integrated with wisdom through all aspects of ourselves & our lives, the impacts of the experience can become confusing and painful. For some, it can feel as though your inner compass is spinning. Sometimes old wounds get reactivated or brought up to consciousness for healing.
