I wholeheartedly recommend The Inner Shift Institute. I studied psychology myself and have done various therapies with different therapists and methods (including kvt, EMDR) over the past 10 years. But I have never been able to work with anyone as profoundly and emotionally as with Jeanne in this Psilocybin session. I felt more supported, understood and seen than with any other therapist before. Jeanne managed to help me through my deepest abysses and worst feelings, and I always felt safe and held. In my opinion, she has the perfect mix of professionalism and warmth/closeness. I am infinitely happy to have found Jeanne and AWNH. I am incredibly grateful for their work and I wholeheartedly recommend the team of The Inner Shift Insitute!Ofri • Feb 09, 2023
Longlasting effects 1am writing again, 5 months after my initial session with the Inner Shift Institute and I can tell you that my life is completely and utterly different than before. I feel so much better, lighter and can enjoy life so much more than before. Yes, I do still have moments were I feel a bit down, but nothing compared to how it was before. And I learned from my integration session how to be with myself in these moments, so that they never last for too long. I couldn’t be happier with my experience and I would highly recommend working with AWNH. The Psilocybin did a lot, but it was the emotional safety that was created by the team of AWNH that made me feel safe enough to go as deep into the journey as I did. Thank you so much!.Moritz • May 06, 2023
In my early 20’s I had some highly positive lsd experiences and now in my 60’s I wanted to reboot my mind and recapture some of that sense of wonder again. After hearing about the great results at John Hopkins, I felt that the best experience had to be with a legal guide, as I did not feel that having done it before would help and I did not want anything to go wrong. The experience and preparation around it with Kerrie could not have been better. I wont go into my trip detail but I will say that I walked out of there on air with a feeling that transcends euphoria because it is a real oneness – a deep connection with the universe. Right up there with the births of my children. 4 months later I am still aware of positive benefits in my life outlook and have found daily meditation easy and natural [never did before] and helps me retain those feelings and benefits. I now realize how much a guide such as Kerrie can add: Simply, I have not met anyone else so completely present, highly intelligent and focused and always in the moment in the preparation and integration sessions. I also appreciated that while the ‘ceremony’ was venerated there was no hippie mumbo-jumbo that was present in all Michael Pollan’s US trips.Peter M. - New York
A feeling of freedom and belonging For the first time in my life I do not have a plan. I do not know what is coming next. Well I never did know, but I had this belief in my head that if I plan everything I am safe. I had to learn and will always learn how to let go. Let go of knowing. Let go of holding on. Today in this moment I can say I feel safe in the not knowing. Feeling absolutely free and safe in being free. And then I know there will be moments where I will be scared, scared of all this new, even tho it is amazing. This feeling of freedom is new to me. This feeling of belonging is new to me. This feeling of being part of a community is new to me. This feeling of being safe is new to me. This feeling of loving and being loved is new to me. Thank you Cony for walking with me this path to where I am today. Going with me through the deepest transformation of my life so far. Bringing me home to myself. Always here to support and guide me. Thank you! Cony works on a lot of different levels, she has a deep knowledge about human psychology, yoga and several different healing techniques. For me it is hard to put in words what exactly she does in her work where she combines all her knowledge and wisdom. I can best describe it with the words above, describing my state of being today. I will forever be grateful for her guiding me.- Anonymous
Caro is exceptional – she’s a very kind, empathic, and genuine person who supported me during the entire process. I can’t be grateful enough for what she did for me. Before I had my 2 psilocybin sessions, I felt stuck and spent over 10 years of my life trying to figure who I was and change the way I think. It wasn’t until I started working with Caro that I realized what was actually holding me back. So far, I feel that the insights, many of which I am still exploring and reflecting on, from my sessions helped me overcome the feeling of hopeless and look at life from a different perspective. This was my first experience with psilocybin and I felt anxious before each of the session. However, the care Caro took of me during and after the journeys has been impressive. During both days, she was fully present and her non-judgemental approach made me feel safe, which allow me to made the most of my experience. If you’re looking to explore your mind, I’d really recommend working with Caro. She’ll know how to ask you the right questions so that you’ll be guided and supported in the best way that works for you.Dominque

What is The Inner Shift Method?

Our Inner Shift Method is a carefully crafted approach designed to facilitate profound transformation through psilocybin-assisted therapy sessions.

Here’s how each component contributes to the process:

1. Creating an Emotionally Safe Space
The foundation of our method is establishing not only a physically safe environment but also an emotionally secure space. By embracing emotional validation and removing the shame around emotions, we empower you to freely explore the depths of your subconscious mind. This unreserved acceptance encourages you to express and navigate through your emotions with ease, making it possible to dive deep into self-exploration and healing.

2. Compassionate Inquiry
Unlike many providers who choose not to intervene during the journey, we actively engage with you by asking purposeful questions that align with your intentions and healing goals. Given the heightened state of consciousness induced by psilocybin, you are better equipped to uncover and understand deep insights. These timely inquiries guide you towards profound realizations and facilitate a transformative healing process. Our clients share with us how important these questions were to be directed into the right direction on their psilocybin journey.

3. Subconscious Reprogramming
Core beliefs about unworthiness, unlovability, or insufficiency can deeply affect your life. Our method utilizes subconscious reprogramming techniques during the peak moments of the psilocybin journey to address and shift these detrimental beliefs. This pivotal aspect of the Inner Shift Method allows you to emerge from the experience with a newfound love and acceptance for yourself, transforming your internal narrative.

4. Empathetic Reflection
A pivotal element of the Inner Shift Method is our role as empathetic mirrors during your journey. Our facilitators are not just observers; they deeply empathize with and reflect your experiences. This profound level of empathy ensures that you feel seen, understood, and supported at every step. By resonating with your emotional landscape, we offer guidance and validation that enhance the therapeutic process, making your journey towards healing and self-discovery a shared and deeply validated experience. This approach fosters a powerful sense of connection and trust, allowing for a more open and transformative session.

5. Trauma Healing
From years of experience, we know that psilocybin experiences can unlock the subconscious, potentially bringing traumatic memories to the forefront – even those long forgotten. These may be deeply ingrained memories from early childhood or even birth. These memories can be visual memories or emotional memories. Our facilitators are adept at identifying and guiding you through these pivotal moments of trauma, ensuring what could have been a distressing experience transforms into one of profound healing. This approach turns potential “bad trips” into therapeutic sessions, offering significant healing and growth.

6. Inner Child Work
When past traumas surface, we employ inner child work to navigate these challenging waters. Our facilitators are trained in trauma integration therapy, allowing us to guide you through moments of deep discomfort that may reemerge during a session. This aspect of our method involves nurturing and healing your inner child, offering the support and validation needed to heal old, unprocessed, longstanding emotional wounds. This aspect of our method ensures that healing is not just temporary but addresses the root causes of emotional pain, leading to lasting change.

7. Meeting Early Childhood Needs:
Our facilitators are adept at addressing needs that went unmet during your early childhood. If your psilocybin journey uncovers difficult memories rooted in unhealthy family dynamics, our facilitator embodies the role of a loving parent or caretaker, offering the support and nurturing previously absent. This unique aspect of our method provides a corrective emotional experience, promoting healing and closure.

8. Overcoming Resistance
It’s not uncommon to encounter resistance due to fear, a desire to control the experience, or mental overactivity. This inner resistance can block the psilocybin journey from starting, leaving the participant in a waiting state. Our method includes proven therapeutic tools to help you move beyond these barriers. By shifting from a state of mental resistance to one of bodily presence, we facilitate the commencement of the psilocybin journey, enabling you to access the transformative potential of the experience fully.

9. Nervous System Regulation
A key component of our approach involves working with your nervous system through somatic techniques. By helping you regulate your nervous system, we enhance your ability to stay present and connected throughout the journey, ensuring a more grounded and transformative experience.

10. Trusting Your Inner Healer:
An integral part of our method is recognizing when to allow space for the psilocybin to guide the process and when to intervene. We respect the healing and learning facilitated by the medicine, choosing not to intervene when you are in a space of growth and surrender. Trust in your inner healer is paramount, balancing guidance with the autonomy of your journey.

11. Integration:
A critical phase of the Inner Shift Method, integration bridges the gap between your psilocybin experience and your daily life. This process involves consolidating the insights, emotional breakthroughs, and transformative realizations into actionable steps and sustainable changes. Our facilitators guide you through reflecting on your journey, identifying key learnings, and applying them to create meaningful, lasting changes in your life. This ensures that the profound shifts experienced during the retreat continue to enrich and guide you long after the immediate effects of psilocybin have subsided, making your transformation a lasting cornerstone of your personal growth and development.

The Inner Shift Method is a holistic approach that integrates modern psychological techniques with the ancient wisdom of psilocybin, offering a comprehensive path to healing, self-discovery, and profound personal growth. Through this method, we support you in navigating the complexities of your inner world, leading to lasting transformation and a deeper connection with your true self.
