“Compassion is the Radicalism of Our Time.” –Dalai Lama
“Understand: Why have we spent so much time and energy in putting together this initiative? Why is this work important?”–Heartfelt Letter from Co-Founder & Executive Director, Raven R. Ray
There are many people coming back from Amazonian treatment centers in need of specialized therapeutic services, whether or not the experience was felt to be “good”, or “bad”. As more and more folks have been reaching out, I have been volunteering many hours, over more than a year, to address this great need to help them continue the work they so bravely began.
Ayahuasca has this beautiful therapeutic potential, as research continues to support. However, we are now seeing the need for specialized therapy & continued care once some of these brave folks have returned, and are reaching out for help. It’s good to keep in mind that ayahuasca is not always this quick fix that media purports at times, and the model we are so accustomed to in western society–but, thankfully, there are compassionate therapists and volunteers standing by, eager to help!
If you find yourself lost now after returning from this journey, know, first, that you are not alone. Many are reaching out to us with concerns about “being [themselves] again”, as they are working through their process. Due to the stigma surrounding psychedelics of any kind, and misunderstanding of intentions simply to heal, folks are having a hard time finding proper therapy. It is very hard to read emails to myself and posts in the forums, as we are not up and running just yet, to offer what these individuals are needing: an understanding therapist–one who is experienced with psychedelics and who will be able to offer appropriate therapy to continue the work began. We will provide this centralized space, with referrals & 24 hour counseling support, free of charge.
This is why the Aftercare Project is Needing Your Support.
Please share the cause and consider making a contribution to getting the one piece we are desperately needing to make it all happen–first and foremost raising funds for the secured, professional website, as well as the to pay experts building the training protocol for therapists & counselors who have been called to do this work. This protocol will also be translated into training modules for therapists who will help on a multi-national level.
Contributions of any size are most helpful, in this Collective effort–no donation is too small or too large, of course, & your help is very much appreciated!
Thank you for your interest in this cause & understanding of the need to get proper support for these folks, which could be a friend of yours, a family member, or yourself. Or simply someone in our society who could be able to contribute back to the whole once they, themselves, are whole again.
We will be there to help with open arms, free of charge, and to lovingly guide yourself or others through the process, including mental preparation and education for those who are called to this experience.
We are acutely aware that we are all connected–we intend to come together to help the collective transcend.
If this resonates with you, again, please consider making a contribution to the cause and share with friends!
In Deep Gratitude ,
Raven Ray, Founder & Executive Director
