• A Psycho-Spiritual Model for Healing and Growth

    Ricard Zwicky welcomes Steve Rio, Owner and Facilitator at Enfold. Steve, an expert in technology and software, joined the team and shared his background with the group. He discussed his experience with building software, managing data for large non-profits and foundations, and working with many notable organizations such as the Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation. The team also learned that Steve was working on a project related to mental health, and he was joined by Richard, who focuses on mental health and is developing a technology platform in this field. The team was ready to begin their discussions, with Richard inviting Steve to share more about his work.

    Steve described their psycho-spiritual model for healing and personal growth, which involves the use of psychedelic medicines, coaching, semantic work, and community connection. He highlighted that they have been working with 5-MeO-DMT for over five years and consider it to be their primary focus due to its unique experience and effectiveness. Steve explained that 5-MeO-DMT is similar to other tryptamines like LSD and DMT, but its experience is intense and semantic, and it's significantly shorter in duration depending on the route of administration. Richard acknowledged the distinctiveness of Steve's approach and the importance of their work in the field.

    Richard and Steve discussed the use of 5-MeO-DMT in therapy, focusing on its ability to rewire attachment styles and provide a profound shift in perspective. Steve explained the three levels of their work: the nervous system, personality, and spiritual system. He emphasized the importance of contextualizing these insights and helping clients apply them to their lives. Richard raised questions about the benefits of the therapy for those who may not fully understand their issues. Steve clarified that the medicine is most effective for those who are ready to face hard truths and are not seeking it as a first step in their personal or spiritual development.

    Steve and Richard discussed the pursuit of wealth and its impact on one's sense of fulfillment and accomplishment. Steve argued that sacrificing one's personal life for the sake of earning money can be a trap, as it doesn't necessarily bring true happiness or satisfaction. Richard agreed and emphasized the importance of finding meaning beyond monetary gain, such as giving back to the community or making a positive impact on the people one works with. They also touched on the potential of psychedelics in helping individuals become more aware of their lives and values, and the importance of mindfulness in aligning one's thoughts and actions with their true values. Finally, they recognized the significant influence of these factors on personal relationships as well.

  • Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy and Tucson Counseling Associates

She supports new clients in our Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy clinic with the intake process, is an assistant to the supervisory team, supports with general office management and administration, and is also a coach as a certified professional dreamworker and Yoga teacher.

    After the interview, Alyssa added some comments:

    ~in regards to who we see in the clinic, "all walks of life", I think it's important to mention that we have seen teens up to retirees, so all ages and gender identities. We are also hoping to offer relationship KAP (couples or those in non-traditional relationship structures)

    ~in regards to the beneficial aspect of group kap/group therapy, I think it's important to mention that the hive mind can access greater intuition together by tapping into what Jung refers to as the collective unconscious, which is important for a system of folks so isolated as we have become in the West. These things allow us to bond with others and to feel connection to Source.
