Following the current thematic arc of the last few episodes, today we are going to explore psychedelic integration from a Jungian Psychotheropaytup framework.

Welcome, Maria Papaspyrou to the show.

Maria is an integrative psychotherapist and systemic constellations facilitator in private practice in Brighton, UK. She has given talks and published articles on the sacramental and healing properties of entheogens, supporting their re-introduction in psychotherapy. She is co-editor “Psychedelic Mysteries of the Feminine”, and is developing T.R.I.P.P. network, a U.K. wide psychedelic psychotherapy integration database.

~~{blog entries for this and the next few episodes will be limited as I am traveling at this time. they will return to their typical depth soon. Thanks for your understanding!}~~

  1. Superb interview with a woman whose work I have admired for some time. We finally got to meet at Breaking Convention this weekend and the brief but still immensely life-affirming time I spent talking with her, along with this excellent podcast have convinced me even further that Maria Papaspyriou is a rare and powerfully compassionate force for feminine wisdom and goodness in this deeply troubled world.
    Please, watch this interview, and absorb.
    Thank you, James.
    Thank you, Maria.
    Big love.

    • Thank you!
      She truly is an amazing woman with an incredible mind. I feel deeply grateful to have learned from her.
