Welcome to The Blank Page, a radical reimagining of healing and hope. I'm Jess.
I support people like you in utilizing psychedelic medicine to heal the root relationship to Self.
What is healing at the root? It is a practice of reconnecting to the most centered, intelligent, attuned, loving, and powerful part of you. As humans, we learn to disconnect from our root (this is called "trauma"), leaving us feeling mad, confused, foggy, detached, sick, and stuck. The good news is that anything learned can be unlearned -- and if you're committed to the work, I'm committed to you.
"We need to free the indomitable spirit to make this a better world for all living things."
-- Jane Goodall
It takes time, patience, and support to learn to reconnect, and heal, at the root. This process happens in fits and starts, over time -- it is so far from linear. Our locus of control is practice, Life's locus of control is everything else, and we don't confuse the two here. Good practice (not good results) is our aim -- but good practice is the only thing that will reliably bring good results. Everything outside of us will either bind us, or liberate us, depending on how we practice with it. So before anything else we must learn how to practice, and then we must practice. If you are not interested in practicing outside of sessions, this space will not work in your favor.
Through learning how to practice, you will begin to understand how to recognize the voice of the real you. You will practice naming it, feeling it, reconnecting with it, trusting it, and thus embodying that identity more and more often. This process will unearth the false limits you unconsciously abide, and will liberate you, us, and our collective future together.
The best tool that I have found for supporting this unlearning, reconnection, and practice (thus far) is psychedelic medicine. That is what I use, and teach people to use. Practice, and reconnection, needs repetition over time, so I do not center my work around macro-doses and do not believe the bulk of healing happens there. I help people use micro-, mini-, and macro-dosing in cycles over time such that clients build an intuitive relationship with psychedelic medicine. Eventually the medicine becomes the teacher, and I step out of the regular frame.
My work is distinctly non-pathological; pathology is the main reason I left traditional mental health. My practice is built on the understanding that there is a foundation of order underneath what traditional mental health calls “disorder". The absence of the entire concept of foundational order from traditional mental health is one of the things that (innocently) keeps us sick, and stuck. This foundational, fundamental order is the true nature of all beings, including you, and learning to trust that foundation is what builds, over time, a secure relationship to oneself, and the rest of the world.
My fee for services is $200/hour & $1200/daylong (includes food, some travel and other amenities)
I dedicate at least 30% of my spaces to sliding-scale clients, and you are welcome to check in about sliding-scale spots. (There is generally a wait-list for sliding-scale spots.)
HOW IT WORKS
Clients start by purchasing a package of hours that are time-banked. Though I suggest we start with the classic 60 minute session, minutes are debited as they are used, and how they are used is up to us. For instance, we can expand to 90 minutes or shrink to 45. Additionally, we can have a standing static structure, like weekly or fortnightly, or we can have a dynamic one that is responsive to you. You and I will partner on a schedule that works for you.
Minutes are stacked together into daylong retreats if we are working with macro-doses. They can also be broken down into smaller 20 minute segments if, for instance, you need a quick crisis call, or a reality-check with a trusted source.
