Plant Medicine Journeys

Partnering with Plant Medicine

Plant medicines have been called upon for thousands of years, and are an ancient and evolutionary technology. As earthen elders, their ability to facilitate transformations is pure magic. Whether it be grassland root systems or our own neural networks, our development is intrinsically bound to our fungal and floral kin. We continue to call upon them for nourishment, medicine, and guidance. They satiate our hunger, bestow us nutrients, calm and energize our bodies, strengthen our immune systems, alleviate pain, expand our consciousness, and help facilitate initiations and transformations.

Journeying with plants means saying “yes” to a deeply intimate and numinous conversation with intelligent and ensouled beings. Through the weaving of a ceremonial container, together we will create sacred space to engage these elders with reverence and intention.

As your human guide, I support you in readying yourself for the most expansive conversation you are capable of having with these mycelial magicians. Calling upon a variety of methodologies & practices, we work together so that you are prepared to surrender to their chthonic wisdom.

I work exclusively with psilocybin. To learn why, CLICK HERE.

"Tempist's intentionality was intuitively supportive and curative in weaving my individual passage with the plant medicine and nurturing our collective container."

"Working with Tempist gave me an entirely new lens to look through, with the somatic ability to sit with all parts of me and to trust in the mysterious unfolding of the death/birth threshold I was graciously guided through."

mycelial agents support us in:

  • widening our field of multi-sensory perception.

  • reengaging our awareness with the forgotten & disavowed parts of our body-psyches.

  • amplifying what longs for our presence and attention.

  • (re)intimating us with the neglected territories of our hearts & souls.

  • opening channels for different ways of listening so as to hear the ancestors, the more-than-human, the unseen, and the divine.

  • reigniting and deepening our relationship with the more-than-human world.

  • liberating our imaginations.

  • disrupting well-worn narratives and opening us up to emergent & ancestral pathways of belonging.

  • crystalizing our protective strategies so we can see them clearly & engage them lovingly, as well as disarming them so that we can surrender to the richness of our journey.

  • (re)connecting us to our deepest longings, forgotten aches, & muted joys.

  • clearing away distractions and bringing us face to face & body to body with what is most important in this season of our life.

This is for You If:

  • you hear that soft voice beckoning you toward new possibilities.


  • you’ve outgrown your current shape or wish to shed an old skin.


  • you long to deepen into the rich & mysterious territory of your life.

  • you want to expand your relationship with your ancestors and guides.


  • you want to meet the landscape of your dreams, visions, shadows and wounds from a renewed place of intimacy.


  • you want to be supported through the death & birth canal of your current transformation.


  • you want to be witnessed with reverence and care.


  • you crave dreaming with the world differently - to allow a more feral and transgressive body of living to emerge.


  • you sense something ancient and emergent calling out to you.


  • you desire rich community and relational depth.


  • you’re willing to venture out beyond the known territory of your life toward the unknown.


  • you want to alchemize ancestral, intra-generational and personal wounds, and to discern the gifts and capacities they’ve bequeathed you.


  • you want to dive into the neglected regions of your heart, and grow still enough to hear, feel, see, smell and taste the honey-drenched rebellion of your soul.


  • you want to dance with your shadow-lands, and shift old pathways of relating.


  • you want to swim through the cavernous depths of your grief.


  • you want to stretch the limbs of your belonging out against a future sky, or...

  • you’re ready to belong to the world in a new way.


  • you’re haunted by big questions - the kind that can make & unmake a life.


  • you dare to be stirred and shaken by the poetic soul of the world.


  • you hear the call to dream a different world into being.


"Tempist has a supernatural gift of offering just the perfect proportion of tenderness to persistence, humor to gravity, focus to diversion, tenacity to compassion. They present the questions that our hearts are terrified to be asked, but have been longing to be answered all this time."

Phases of the Journey

 

Preparation

Beginning this journey together requires establishing trust & deepened intimacy with me, your plant guides, yourself, and your ancestors & allies, cultivating psychospiritual & eco-mystical practices that will ready you for the medicine journey, and tuning into your intentions - the deep "why" that beckons you toward the territory of personal transformation.

Journey

Each ceremonial container, woven out of ritual & embodiment, is enacted with the land where I live in *Colorado. Medicine journey's are co-created and curated, allowing for emergent genius to flow freely and plant guides to be engaged reverently. As agents of earthen magic, surrendering to these mycelial magicians enables rich and potent experiences.

Deepening & Integration

As a non-linear process, deepening & integration involves allowing yourself to be shaped by your medicine journey while also grounding your experiences in your life by bringing them home to your body & your day-to-day. In doing so, you honor the messages, insights, initiations and revelations you receive from your plant guides.

*In November 2022, the State of Colorado passed proposition 122 which decriminalized psilocybin mushrooms.

These three phases of the journey are a continuum of experience; like a braid, the experiences within each phase are ongoingly woven together.

Plant Medicine Journeys offered through Feral Mysticism are ontological in nature.

Pathways of Participation

Every journey is different & specific for each person.

 

Whether it be a personal or group container, there are countless threads that weave a tapestry of experience together: season of life, place & space, personal psycho-spiritual territory, tending ancestral connection, human, ancestral & more-than-human guides, time of year, co-journeying field (if in a group), personal & collective mythic landscape, & more.


While Plant Medicine Journey’s involve imbibing plant medicine, the larger journey begins the moment you say “Yes” & commit yourself to this work of personal growth & transformation.

 

Over the course of your chosen 4 or 6 months, you will be establishing rich & meaningful relationships with yourself, others (if in a group), ancestors, plant guides, and myself — your human guide. Stretching the journey out in this way allows for slowness, so you can court the greater mystery of your life & the intention you will be carrying.

Testimonials

At the start of the ceremonial journey with Tempist, I was comfortability molded to a reality of loneliness, insecurity, and shame — even whilst surrounded by people that loved me and my professional career was booming with international acclaim. I habitually donned guises and fabricated distractions to smother the darkness pulling itself toward the surface. The amount of courage necessary to face the death of a previous way of being is overwhelming; but Tempist’s guidance brightens the path. They have a supernatural gift of offering just the perfect proportion of tenderness to persistence, humor to gravity, focus to diversion, tenacity to compassion. Tempist presents the questions that our hearts are terrified to be asked but have been longing to be answered all this time. Under their guidance, I have now ventured to the depths of my underworld, only to find a sturdy foundation made up of my ancestors’ meticulous handiwork, and bringing back home the purest parts of me."
