Welcome to your plant medicine path. Here’s how we found ours.

We are both lifelong searchers, and we’d both been down healthy and unhealthy paths in our 40+ years of learning how to live.  For each of us, finding plant medicine was a turning point.

PMP About Us Post 1

Michele had over a decade of sobriety and spiritual work behind her, but still had the lingering feeling that there had to be more. More to life, more to discover, more to herself.

Mark had tried to find happiness in the bottle, in medication, in success, in pushing too hard and not enough. After his first psychedelic experience, he thought it wasn’t for him. But he kept coming back.

Years later, we’ve both dedicated ourselves to the lifelong integration of these medicines, and to helping others find their way to, and through, them.

What we know to be true is that psychedelic healing is a journey, and it involves so much more than just an experience or a retreat. Preparation and integration are what allows these powerful medicines to change your life.

In the western world, it is the preparation, the connection to community, and the integration that is often missing from plant medicine experiences. After starting on our paths, we both saw that missing piece, and knew it was essential. If we treat plant medicine like a pharmaceutical, we lose what it is truly trying to bring us. And so, the Plant Medicine Path was born in 2021.

Now, we not only live integration in our own lives, but travel the country and the world finding the safest, most authentic providers, integration specialists and coaches, so that others can get the most out of plant medicine. In doing so, we are building a community of healing, and a movement of awareness.

We are here to share our experiences and support you in yours.  Thank you for joining us.

Meet Mark

At 50 years old, I still felt lost in my life. I was depressed and I’d tried everything. I thought I could find happiness in a pill, in the bottle, in money. My journey really started when, unbidden, ayahuasca came to my mind, and I booked my first retreat. After my first experience, I was convinced it wasn’t for me. My ego pushed back. Three weeks later, I showed right back up and was ready to start again. That experience changed everything for me. Despite its impact, I also knew that something was missing. That just showing up, having an experience, and being sent on your way wasn’t enough. As I continued with plant medicine, it became so apparent to me that education and integration are key. I’ve been on this path for years now, and I really believe it is a path. There’s growth in every stage, and medicines for every stage. As my consciousness just exploded and expanded, I knew that all parts of the journey were important, and they all required education and integration. Because it’s a lifelong process.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: plant medicine is not a quick fix. But it works. If you are ready for it, and willing to be vulnerable and to do the work of integration, it really works. It is a path toward a fulfilling, meaningful life. Which is what we are all really searching for.

I’m here to evolve, and to show that evolving is possible. I’m all in on this path, and I’m all in on helping others find those experiences, that connection to others, that communal experience. That is so much of what we’ve lost.

We are all different, and the aspects of our experiences will be different. But we all need that community, that knowledge, and the guidance to integrate, to take the lessons of plant medicine and apply them in our lives. The Plant Medicine Path is everything I wish I’d had, and it’s here to allow everyone to find the information, connection and guidance they need.

This is a soul process. This is an individualized process. ​

Meet Michele

I came to plant medicine with 15 years of recovery behind me. I thought I had figured out a lot of what it meant to walk a spiritual path and how to live. But there were still things missing. I always felt like there must be more. Then I lost my mother, and I just knew I didn’t understand all of this, all of life.

My first ayahuasca experience was incredibly intense. I had a lot of trauma to purge and a lot to learn. But I came out of that experience realizing that there WAS more, that I had only ever seen the tip of the iceberg. I began to see everything from a different perspective.

Early in my path, I had to work so hard to find information on what I was experiencing, to find anyone who could relate or inform me on what it all meant. In just four short years, The Plant Medicine Path has begun to change all of that.

When I first started this journey, I didn’t really know what integration meant, even though everyone talked about it. Now, I know that integration is key; without integration, these are just experiences. Integration is how you take the messages, the understandings, from your journey and bring them into your life. If you really want to change your life, to get the most out of plant medicine, you have to integrate your experience. Today, I integrate plant medicines into my life on a daily basis.


I’m passionate about providing a clear pathway to that vital integration. I wanted to create a place for people to find the community, the education and the integration to further their path. Because once you start, you are always going to want to go further. I want people to feel safe going further, and at The Plant Medicine Path, that is what we do. We create the community, the safety, and the direction to keep going. 

We are the medicine. We already have all the answers inside us and the plant medicine allows us to see that and integrate that into the life we lead.​
