Roots to Thrive


A 12 week community of practice program, weaving together the medicines of unconditional positive regard, community, and ketamine assisted therapy to find our way back to wholeness

Remembering our inherent wholeness

For many of us, traditional mental health treatments have failed. Unresolved trauma is often a core factor at the root of chronic mental health conditions. Trauma can get ‘stuck’ in the body, guarded by our nervous system in an effort to keep us safe. Medicines like ketamine that promote a psychedelic (mind manifesting) effect help to cultivate the non-attachment and self-compassion necessary to access areas of ‘stickiness’ that are otherwise difficult to reach. From here, we work around the nervous system, granting us a greater ability to access and release stored trauma. These treatments are not a quick fix, rather they provide an opportunity to connect at a deeper level – past the veil of the ego and the stress response. By using medicines like ketamine as psychotherapy adjuncts (additions), imbedded in a community of practice where we give and recieve unconditional positive regard, we are cultivating ‘Roots to Thrive’.

If you are thinking of applying to be a participant in a Roots to Thrive program, here are some questions to help you decide if this is a good fit for you.

  1. Do you have the time, energy, and interest to be an engaged and consistent participant in a small group over twelve weekly community of practice gatherings and three ketamine-assisted therapy sessions?
  2. If you are parenting, do you have solid child-care plans?
  3. Do you have a diagnosis of PTSD, depression, substance use disorder and/or anxiety that hasn’t shifted as well as you wish with medication, therapy, and other approaches although you have been doing your work and have made some progress?
  4. If you have self-medicated your distress with alcohol and/or drugs, is your life stable enough now to allow you to commit to a group process that counts on your open-hearted, fully present weekly participation?

I actually have true hope and I can’t say I had that before… I am finally able to allow myself guilt free rest (that my body desperately needs) and this is the first time I can truly say, being in my body is ok – it’s not a place I need to run from. It is my home. We can work together. I can feel true deep love again and I didn’t even realize that I couldn’t before. I can feel my heart entirely without running away from what’s in there; I am free. This program has quite literally saved my life.
