Hypnotherapy

  • What Is Hypnosis?
    Hypnosis is not magic, it is science! It is a trance-like state of heightened suggestibility, attention and concentration. Hypnosis has been shown to have many medical and therapeutic benefits and is used to reduce interference from the conscious mind. It is a state of heightened awareness, increased relaxation that allows the conscious mind to accept suggestions to re-write patterns in current behavior. In hypnotherapy, we use verbal repetition, mind relaxation techniques to bring out suppressed events and emotions that are blocked by the conscious mind. Hypnosis typically makes people more open to suggestions which lead to a desired change in behavior. Hypnotherapy may help cope better with anxiety, fear, pain, pas traumatic events, addictions, OCD and any other behaviors that produce a negative effect for the the person undergoing the therapy.  Although the person is more open to suggestion during , they don't lose control over their behavior during a hypnosis session.

    No, if for some reason our session is interrupted and you are still under hypnosis, you will simply come back to your full awareness within a few minutes.
  • What If I Go Back To Scenes From The Past That Are Painful Or Scary?
    Your subconscious mind may take you to unpleasant scenes from the past. This means that there is healing to be done in this area and I will support you through this process. In regression you are not re-living the scenes, but re-viewing them from a distance. As a result, the intensity of the original experience is minimized.
  • When Will I Start To See Changes?
    There are 3 types of change from Rapid Transformational Therapy.
    • Immediate: You experience a massive shift in your physical and mental health.
    • Incremental: You see consistent shifts every day, or over time. Improvements are additive and you feel better with every passing day.

  • What If I Don't Go Deep Into Hypnosis?
    The depth of hypnosis is not indicative of the result from the session. Profound changes are often observed in clients who enter a light alpha state and experience a lasting change they were looking for.

Breathwork

  • What Are The Side Effects of Breathing?
    Breathing for a prolonged period of time can lead to Tetany. This is characterized by cramping, tightening, tingling, paralyzing, or numbing sensations of the hands and/or feet (others call it breathwork lobster hands). It is a very common occurrence during Breathwork. It is temporary and the body will re-adjust within minutes after resuming regular, steady breathing.
  • What Happens In The Body During Breathwork?
    By active breath, you start to increase the level of oxygen in your body. You stimulate the hypothalamus gland, release endorphins in the body and of course oxygenate the blood. Due to higher levels of endorphins, the brain is less in control. It might feel uncomfortable at first but we encourage you to keep going as it will pass after several minutes. You may start to feel electric like vibrations in your body and as if it is coming alive with energy in different parts. This is an indication that the body is starting to open up allowing emotions and energy to move freely through the body. In this state you are moving into a higher state of consciousness. During breathwork you will feel your nervous system slowing down and will feel at ease and relaxed. Your mind gains clarity on next steps and you will overall feel a lot more in control and present.
  • Is Breathwork Similar To Meditation?
    Breathwork, and meditation have very similar mindfulness benefits. We do love breathwork as it is very energizing, and you will see results after only one session.
  • What are the different types of breathwork, and what do they aim to achieve?
    There is a diverse range of breathwork techniques. These practices share a common thread—they compel the ego to observe and centre. However, each type has a specific purpose:
    • Transcendental Breathwork: Aims to transcend ordinary consciousness and connect with higher states of awareness.
    • Alchemical Breathwork: Focuses on inner transformation, using breath to transmute emotional and psychological elements.
    • Conscious Breathwork: Promotes mindfulness, encouraging present-moment awareness through intentional breathing.
    • Biodynamic Breathwork: Concentrates on releasing stored tension and unresolved emotions from the body.
    • Transformational Breathwork: Aims to facilitate personal growth and transformation by using breath as a tool for self-discovery.
    • Rebirthing Breathwork: Centers on revisiting and releasing birth trauma to promote emotional healing and personal evolution.
    These breathwork practices purge limiting beliefs, renew energy, detoxify the body and mind, and experience vitality while remaining fully present in each moment. Individuals can attain deep peace and lasting vitality by investing energy into themselves.

  • How Often Do I Need to Practice?
    Every person is different. You can practice once per week, every other day or daily. You will quickly realize what the best schedule is for you. It is better to engage in shorter immersions, but on a regular basis versus long exposure to the cold from time to time.
  • How to start cold water therapy?
    Starting cold water therapy, especially for beginners, involves a gradual and mindful approach to cold exposure. Here are some steps to help you get started with cold water therapy:
    • Set Clear Goals: Determine your goals for cold water therapy. Whether you're looking to improve circulation, boost energy, or reduce inflammation, having clear objectives can help tailor your practice.
    • Start with Contrast Showers: For beginners, it's often recommended to begin with contrast showers. Start with a warm shower for a few minutes, then gradually decrease the water temperature to lukewarm, cool, and finally cold. Alternate between warm and cold for 30 seconds to a minute each.
    • Gradual Cold Exposure: Once you're comfortable with contrast showers, you can progress to full cold showers. Begin with shorter exposures and gradually increase the time as your tolerance builds. Pay attention to your body's signals and never push yourself too far too quickly.
    • Focus on Breathing: Deep and controlled breathing is crucial during cold water exposure. Practice slow and steady breaths to help your body adapt to the cold and reduce the stress response.
    • Safety First: Always prioritize safety. Cold water exposure can be intense, so never engage in it if you're feeling unwell, have open wounds, or are alone without supervision.
    • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water before and after your cold water therapy sessions to stay hydrated and support your body's recovery.
    • Warm-Up After: After cold exposure, warm up gradually with dry clothes, blankets, or physical activity to raise your body temperature and avoid feeling excessively cold.
    • Consistency is Key: To experience the benefits of cold water therapy, consistency matters. Consider making it a regular part of your routine, but always listen to your body and adjust as needed.

    • For Arthritis: Cold water therapy may provide relief for individuals with arthritis by reducing joint inflammation and relieving pain. The cold water can help numb the affected area, offering temporary relief from discomfort.
    • For Fibromyalgia: When used judiciously, cold water therapy can be a complementary approach for managing fibromyalgia. The cold temperature may help alleviate muscle pain and reduce the hypersensitivity associated with fibromyalgia.
    • For Anxiety: Cold water immersion can induce a physiological stress response, which may help individuals adapt to stressors over time. This adaptive response can potentially reduce anxiety symptoms and increase resilience to stress.
    • For Depression: Cold water therapy's stimulating effect can lead to increased alertness and the release of endorphins, which are natural mood elevators. Some individuals find that cold water exposure can help improve their mood and alleviate depressive symptoms.
    • For Weight Loss: While not a direct weight loss method, cold water therapy can indirectly support weight loss efforts. Exposure to cold water may activate brown fat, which burns calories to generate heat, potentially contributing to weight management when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.
  • What is the best temperature for Cold Water Therapy?
    The optimal temperature for cold water therapy primarily depends on individual preferences and specific objectives. Typically, cold water therapy utilizes water temperatures hovering around 0°C (32°F), which provides a profoundly cold and invigorating experience. By using ice cold water, we keep water at the same temperature during every immersion to maintain consistency.

    Bioactive peptides in Kambo are short chains of amino acids found within the secretion of the Amazonian giant monkey frog, Phyllomedusa bicolor. These peptides are considered bioactive because they have specific biological activities and can interact with the human body in various ways. While the exact composition of Kambo peptides can vary, one of the most well-known peptides in Kambo is Phyllomedusin. These bioactive peptides in Kambo are believed to be responsible for the physiological and psychological effects experienced during a Kambo ceremony. They can stimulate the digestive and immune systems, potentially act as natural painkillers, and induce various responses such as nausea, vomiting, sweating, and increased heart rate and blood pressure.

The Sacred Toad (Bufo Alvarius)

  • What is Bufo Alvarius and 5 MeO-DMT?
    Bufo Alvarius is an amphibian that is often referred to as “Bufo” or “the Sacred Toad” or the "Colorado River Toad" and has the power to help the person see within themselves and liberate from all programs and attachments that do not serve you. The effects of the medicine interfere with the workings of the ego, can elicit a state of oneness, unconditional love, purity, but most importantly a perspective of who we really are. The unlimited, eternal carriers of light, a fractal of pure love experiencing the world through a unique perspective here on Earth. The protective secretions contain a substance called 5 MeO-DMT and when heated and inhaled, produces a state of clarity, connectedness, oneness, feeling of belonging to all that is and re-connection with the Source. Words do not do it justice! This is a time of clarity, awareness of all that is in existence. Think of it as an opportunity to zoom out and view yourself, past experiences, traumas and limitations from a higher vantage point. It is as if we are watching a movie where you are not quite associating yourself with the main character, but observing from a place of detachment and objectivity.
  • How does 5 MeO-DMT work?
    The medicine is vapourized and inhaled into the lungs where it travels throughout the body and into the brain . Molecularly, it strongly resembles a neurotransmitter called serotonin. 5 MeO-DMT binds to these receptors causing changes to the perception of the usual reality. The programs that typically help to make sense of the so called “reality” are disrupted resulting in a feeling of unity with all that is!

  • How long is the ceremony?
    The ceremony is approximately 1.5 to 3 hours. The actual medicine experience lasts lasts about 20 min and is followed by a period of integration and ego “assembly”. It is safe to resume normal activities including operating a motor vehicle within 2-3 hrs after the treatment. Take extra caution and give yourself plenty of time to accomplish tasks.
  • How can I prepare for the Bufo or Toad Ceremony?
    Fast for at least 12 hrs or longer if possible. Keep your diet clean and avoid processed foods. Set an intention of what you want to let go from your life and what you want to manifest going forward.
  • What does it feel like?
    No words can accurately describe this experience. If feels like a rebirth, liberation, letting go of everything you though ever mattered (or didn’t matter to you)
  • The Toad Medicine is not safe is you have...
    It is not safe for persons taking SSRIs/MAO inhibitors. Allow at least 3 month after stopping these substances. Anti-anxiety and anti-depression medications should be stopped at least 1 month prior to the ceremony.

    Yoga mat, cushion, blanket, personal or altar items. Your intention and journal notes.
  • Is the Bufo Alvarius poisonous?
    Yes, the poisonous Bufo Alvarius toad, also known as the Colorado River toad or the Sonoran Desert toad. The toad's skin contains various toxic compounds, including bufotoxins, which are meant to deter predators. These toxins can be harmful or even lethal if ingested or come into contact with mucous membranes or open wounds. The primary danger lies in handling or consuming the toad's secretion, as it can cause skin irritation, eye irritation, and potentially more severe reactions if not handled with caution. When seeking to extract and use the psychedelic compound 5-MeO-DMT found in the toad's secretion, it's crucial to follow proper safety measures and consult with experienced practitioners knowledgeable about its responsible and safe use.
  • What are the benefits of Bufo Alvarius?
    Bufo Alvarius, or the Colorado River toad, is primarily sought after for the psychoactive effects of its secretion, which contains the powerful psychedelic compound 5-MeO-DMT. People who explore the use of Bufo Alvarius and 5-MeO-DMT often do so intending to experience a wide range of potential benefits, including:
    • Awaiting to accept - excepting that you are unconditional, a realisation that you are source/god/universe. Be able to be in the moment.
    • Revisiting and transmuting stored trauma.
    • The realisation that what we believe about reality may not be true.
    • Personal Transformation
    • Emotional Release
    • Increased Mindfulness
    • Reduced Anxiety and Depression
    • Acceptance and surrender of the present moment
    • Creativity and Problem Solving
  • What is the Bufo used for?
