Musings on Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy Journeys

Transcendent or Difficult. Both journeys are welcomed and full of healing potential. I’d like to share some musings that came while holding space for a recent dosing session in a Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) group about potential journeys.

Maybe you don’t know what it is to feel pleasure, joy, rest, nurture, peace.
Maybe you can’t imagine what it’s like to experience yourself outside of fear, anger, negative thought patterns.
Maybe you are accessing a felt sense of goodness that transcends any experience you know.
Maybe you are learning that there is good.
And you can know it.
Feel it.
Maybe you are learning how to access this sensation any time you want.
Challenging old beliefs that you aren’t deserving of pleasure, joy, rest, nurture, peace.
Believing that these things exist in the world.
And in you.
Maybe you are recalling happy memories and moments that got lost to the hardship, heartbreak, pain, trauma.
Or maybe you are accessing traumatic memories.
Facing fears.
Facing parts of self.
Maybe you are really experiencing through your body overwhelming feelings.
Meeting shadow parts.
Acknowledging pain.
Maybe you are finding strength you didn’t know you had while surviving the things you fear.
Maybe you are healing.
Maybe you are becoming whole.
