Guided Mushroom Journeys invites you for life-changing Psilocybin retreats in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. I am Gerry Kayohte, a psychedelic enthusiast with the skills to guide you and be your trip-sitter through a transformational journey. My mission is to hold space for you and support you to unveil and explore your consciousness. By delving deep into the elements of your being, we will unfurl and create a new state of awareness. Furthermore, this will ground you and relieve you of pre-existing distress.
I approach healing very carefully, including a screening procedure and the curation of a tranquil and professional sitting environment. We will first focus on preparation, understanding your needs and ensuring they are conducive to plant medicine teachings. This ensures there is an appropriate connection being made between you and the medicine.
Additionally, I will always be by your side to address the challenges and needs that you might encounter. Finally, after the journey, we will consolidate the experience with integration calls. You can share your experience here, creating an open discussion and pathing the way to a brighter future.
I am in the crone stage of life, having spent considerable time attempting to understand the nature of existence more deeply through human relationships, teachers and mentors, sacred rituals, plant spirit medicines, and trying, as sincerely as possible, to “be here now.” The experience of the psilocybin journey, the time with the “little people,” can show us that, like the mycelial network that travels unseen underneath everything, we are part of each other.
In that sense, I become, in some ways, a part of my client’s journey, along for the ride, so to speak. On that ride, I am both the lion standing guard, protecting my vulnerable client as they are carried forward into the known and unknown territories of the spirit, mind, heart, and physical body, and the lantern bearer shining the light ahead and beckoning with assurance to “step forward; everything will be okay!” I believe and experience that our journeys unfold exactly as they were meant to occur.
I guide individuals, couples, and small groups on immersive psilocybin journeys and support preparation and integration. These journeys primarily take place in my prepared studio.
I recently completed a somatic relational trauma skills certificate course with Albert Wong, PhD, at Somatopia. The training and coursework have significantly benefited me since many clients struggle with past trauma.
