Journey Into the Creative Portal: Exploring the Interplay between Sacred Geometry, Somatic Art Therapy & Psychedelics
Sacred geometry is a field of study that explores the inherent patterns, shapes, and mathematical principles found in the natural world, religious and spiritual symbolism, and ancient architectural and artistic traditions. It is based on the belief that certain geometric forms hold deep spiritual or metaphysical significance and can be seen as a reflection of divine order and universal truths.
Combining sacred geometry, divine intelligence, somatic therapy, art therapy, and psychedelics can be a powerful and transformative experience.
We are all geometrical beings with infinite possibilities of how our life can be created, explored and enjoyed. When we are able to tap into and access the power of sacred geometry, we feel more balanced in our lives because we become more connected to the nature around us as well as our own infinite possibilities!

The Integration of Psychedelic experiences using Somatic Art Therapy can be a valuable and supportive approach to Shadow Work.
What is Shadow Work?
Shadow work is a psychological and spiritual practice that involves exploring and integrating the unconscious aspects of the self, often referred to as the “shadow.” The concept of the shadow was popularized by Swiss psychologist Carl Jung, who believed that the shadow consists of repressed or disowned aspects of our personality, including our fears, insecurities, unresolved traumas, and unexpressed desires.
Somatic Art Therapy & Shadow Work
Here’s how Somatic Art Therapy can facilitate the integration of psychedelic experiences and support Shadow Work:
Are you struggling to make sense of the Psychedelic Experience you just went through? Do you feel like the surface has just been skimmed and you would like to go deeper into learning about yourself and how to live your best life ever?
The effects of a mystical and altered state of consciousness linger, bounce around, and affect our waking reality far beyond ceremony or however your awakening has been opened. When our soul’s path has been awakened through sacred plant medicines or entheogens like Ayahuasca, Psilocybin, Iboga, Kambo, LSD, or through a Kundalini Awakening, Dark Night of the Soul or Meditation and Yoga, a profound shift happens in the body and brain. This can be confusing once we go back to our regular waking life.
Neuroplasticity: How the Brain is AffectedMystical Experiences are profound experiences for anybody, that is true, but what is actually happening in the brain to create this profound shift? Although research is just now flooding in, there have been many studies, FMRI's and personal, professional and medical accounts to explain what shifts our brain is going through in these profoundly moving moments.
Intensely powerful is the rerouting of neuropathways which dictate the ways we have habitually been conditioned to act, react and survive in our lives. That is why profound, mystical experiences can bring about such great changes when it comes to addiction and changing demoting habits or personality traits that may have taken control of our lives.
