What will we be doing?
Your brain has stuff to tell you, and you don’t always listen. You know that. That’s not your fault. It’s frickin’ hard to listen to yourself. Like, properly hearing what you have got to say to you, that’s the hardest thing there is. If only you could just speak up, then you might be able to understand what you had to say to yourself!
Well, that’s what you set out to do: Psychedelics twisted the volume button until it wouldn’t go any further. But increasing the volume might not have made the message any clearer.. Still no instruction manual to make changes in your life… Now what? So here’s what we’ll do: We’re going to go over what you saw, heard, felt and we’re going to try to translate what it was you were trying to tell yourself. We’ll figure out the symbolism of your message to you. Things might not make much sense at first and it can be quite a puzzle. Life’s like that. Let’s see if we can find your puzzle’s edge together. In these sessions, I will ask you to draw or sketch what you have experienced and I will also be using pencil and paper myself to sketch symbols and ideas.
To help you find meaning, we will investigate the symbolism of your experience. You may have seen (or been) an animal, may have encountered any of your family members or ancestors, you may have climbed a structure, breathed geometric shapes, interacted with elements like earth, fire, air and water or may even have smelled colours, who knows. Every experience is different. But there are commonalities, too. There are parts of our brain that have evolved into what they are now. You were born with those pathways, and as such they are universal. Therefore, there is a commonality to be found in the psychedelic experience, too. People have shared experiences with eachother since humanity first started communicating and from the get-go we’ve communicated in symbols. You have something in common with everything anyone has ever experienced and from the earliest moment we could communicate with eachother we’ve made drawings and have written things down. We will be searching for symbols and their meaning in nature, religion, spirituality, modern art, popular culture, music, literature, history and anything else that may present itself as we follow the threads of your experience.
