As part of our "Foundational Tools for Navigating the Healing Journey" series, we offer a deeper dive into integration and embodiment.
More and more, we hear the word 'integration' when it comes to big experiences like psychedelics. But what does that actually mean?
What does integration look like? How do we know we are integrating well or at all? How do we know we are done (and ready for the next step?) And what does embodiment in integration feel like?
Integration happens on many levels, of which sense-making is only one. It's important to have some concepts to help us understand what happened to us, but the integration will not be complete unless we start feeling at ease and at peace in our bodies, and start embodying our experience in daily life. This circle will help us understand these crucial facets of healing, and how to enact them, in community with like-minded women.

We aim to create a brave space in which we can empower ourselves with tools, share what's present for us in a free and non-judgemental way, and relate to one another regarding different aspects and challenges of our healing processes. The number of participants is limited to 15.
At WOOP (Women on Psychedelics), we wholeheartedly support women who turn to psychedelics for healing, self-empowerment, personal discovery and growth. A women’s circle is a wonderful way to support you in your ongoing journey, and we are committed to creating safe spaces for women to be able to deeply explore and voice what they are going through.
This event will be hosted by WOOP Co-founder Jessika Lagarde and psychedelic integration guide Kasia Patzelt.
This event is for women* or self-identified women who are integrating their psychedelic experiences. More broadly, we welcome any woman who has embarked on their healing journey (especially through and with psychedelics) and is ready to take their inner work to the next level.
Women On Psychedelics (WOOP) is a psychedelic education platform & a growing global community of female psychedelic enthusiasts and professionals that believe in the transformative potential of psychedelics. We work towards the normalization of these substances and the end of the stigmatization of women’s mental health and women’s drug use. We hope to connect women* through creative, social, and political educational content and activities that work to create a positive change on the ways psychedelics are viewed/perceived by the general public.
*women of all racial, cultural, gender identities and sexual orientation including but not limited to LGBTQI+
Jessika Lagarde is a psychedelic-assisted medicine guide, integration coach, Women On Psychedelics co-founder, and freelance writer in the psychedelic space. Since 2020, she has been behind WOOP's content production, where her passions for storytelling, women's empowerment, and psychoactive substances converge. Jess' goal as an advocate for psychedelics is to work towards the normalization of these substances and the end of the stigmatization of women’s mental health and women’s drug use.
Kasia Patzelt is an Embodiment Coach, Artist, Breathwork Facilitator, HeartIQ lover, and Laughter Yogi. After nearly getting lost in her psychedelic explorations and the early stages of her healing journey, she understood how important true Embodiment is in this dis-embodied and stressed-out world that we live in. Insight or experience alone is not enough to bring about transformation. We need to integrate it into our relationships! To heal is a continuous practice of becoming truly and deeply intimate with oneself, others, and nature.
