Facilitators

The most important part of your journey is selecting a facilitator who will guide you through the entire process: paperwork, scheduling and most importantly setting your intention and preparing you.

Facilitators create a “safe space” to shine a light on the areas you want to explore.

If you see someone that you feel “resonates” with you, go with your instinct.  Let us know and we will get you in contact.  And if you want to talk to more than one facilitator, that’s perfectly acceptable.

FACILITATOR FEES, BELOW, ARE PAID TO THE FACILITATOR.

THE TOTAL COST OF SERVICE IS THE FACILITATOR FEE, ROOM FEE, AND PSILOCYBIN.

Room rates are between $300 and $600.  Psilocybin is between $150 and $200.

A Little About Me:
At 47 with a 23 year old married son, a 25 year old daughter and being married for 25 years to the same supportive and nurturing woman, relationships are paramount! We have all experienced the ups and downs of being in a relationship. Improving communication has been at the heart of this movement creating a constant education and reevaluation of skills that have led to this calling. After wrestling with demons around anger management, anxiety, and substance abuse that plague so many of us, I find myself here ready to help others. The Japanese have a saying: A stream that is too pure has no fish. There are plenty of fish in my stream and I am here to let you know that you are not alone.

Bern Haggard

Hello. I have worked intentionally and extensively with Entheogens for over 25 years. During this time, I developed a deep understanding of the expanded awareness and profound healing that can occur with Psilocybin.

While traveling to sacred sites in countries such as, Mongolia, Thailand, Peru, Mexico, Belize, and the the Amazon Jungle, I participated in numerous and varied Hallucinogenic plant medicine circles and ceremonies. Of which, I studied the different modalities and effects, or what I called “getting the download”. I learned the hard way early on, the importance of journey preparation. Then, I realized the tangible benefits of consciously integrating the experience into you life.

I mentored closely for multiple seasons with a Peruvian Curandera facilitating Ayahuasca group circles. It was this potent work that gave me the meaningful experience of what it takes to hold space for someone in a grounded and compassionate way while they go deep within the psychedelic realms of themself.

I’m honored to use my experience and be of service as a Licensed Psilocybin Facilitator. Thank you

Markus Lyons

Markus Lyons’ credentials for being a Facilitator of Psilocybin Therapy are accentuated within  his own healing journey.  Markus’ ability to be fully present emotionally, mentally and physically while witnessing the healing process can only traverse the depths with which he has experienced within himself.  Psychedelics have played a profound part in his deep healing journey for the past 20 years.

Markus has been curious, passionate and explorative in his relationship with the healing process using psychedelics.  In his own journey with psychedelics he naturally approaches psilocybin as a teacher and guide for traversing the subconscious and shadow self.  Through his own healing path of turning toward what is uncomfortable with curiosity, he has cultivated a deep well of compassion and empathy for all the myriad ways healing unravels.  

He believes it is a Gift to be witness to the expansive healing nature that psilocybin shares with us.

Markus started out on his Healing Arts journey in his 20’s attending Maui School of Therapeutic Massage, becoming LMT Certified in ’09.  Eventually Markus weaved his way toward the ancient practice of Tea.  Today, Markus considers himself a kind of ‘Practitioner of Tea’ and devotes time everyday to the ‘Way of Tea’ in which he approaches the leaf as a Tao, a self cultivation practice of simplicity, slowing down and resting in ‘not knowing’.  Markus owned the Dragon GongFu Teahouse from ’18-’21 which eventually evolved into Mountain Tea Temple, holding Tea Ceremony and communal Tea gatherings for his Communities.  He is now offering Tea Ceremony as an Integration practice for Psilocybin Journey’s.

Being a ‘space holder’ for Markus is as natural to him as the mushroom is to the mycelium. 

Markus has traversed over 14yrs of marriage to his beautiful wife and continues to discover the endless emotional tapestry that Love weaves within one’s self.  His greatest love is being Father to his two beautiful boys as he dedicates his life to these loving relationships.

For any questions and interest in discovering the therapeutic benefits of psilocybin journeys with Markus, please direct message him at MTT777@protonmail.com or 808.927.7338

Andreas Met

Andreas’ experience with psychedelics spans 39 years, rooted in the idea of personal freedom and powerful life lessons.  Andreas has seen more than 60 clients at Satya with many profound results, as numerous Google reviews attest, most recent review.

Having had one foot planted in the “corporate world” and the other in a bohemian mindset, Andreas has deep experience working in the corporate default mode network and all of its trappings (the high costs of success through the pursuit of a career).

He’s looking forward to collaborating with those people grappling with alcohol, anxiety, depression, and that heavy weight that results from the burdens of this complex society.  Most of Andreas’ clients are at difficult crossroads–places Andreas knows well, having transformed many times in his life.

Andreas’ approach is broadening awareness and enhancing mental well-being through self-knowledge and the power of our inner “healer.” This is achieved through meticulous groundwork, transformative experiences, and thorough extensive integration post-journey.

Andreas’ intention is to facilitate your journey towards holistic growth — mind, body, and spirit.

Outside of founding Satya with his wife, Jennifer, and daughter Isabella, Andreas competes in Jiu-Jitsu and has a profound love for the outdoors and wild places.

Shelah Wind-Smith

Warmest greetings!  I am a licensed psilocybin facilitator based in Oregon. In addition to this role, I am also a mother, wife, artist, entrepreneur, and beekeeper. Over the past three decades, I have delved into the transformative realms of psychedelics, and I am deeply honored to support others on their paths of growth and healing.  I consider witnessing vulnerability as a sacred duty.

My background in nursing and hospice care has instilled in me a deep appreciation for nurturing human connection and guiding individuals through transitions. After departing from the traditional healthcare model, I find immense joy in returning to serving people from a more holistic and humanistic approach.

Drawing from indigenous wisdom, I believe that mushrooms are teachers with their own intelligence, capable of connecting individuals to their internal wisdom and unique paths. In my practice, I provide a safe, non-judgmental, and sacred space for exploration, placing a strong emphasis on integration.

My personal journey includes overcoming religious trauma, addiction, depression, negative mindset, creative blocks, and abuse. As a result, I feel comfortable and capable of supporting individuals dealing with a variety of challenges.

Embracing my identity within LGBTQIA+, neurodivergent, and disabled communities, I am dedicated to promoting accessibility and inclusivity for all. I offer my services on a sliding scale or through scholarships.

Michael Rhodes

Some highlights of my life include being a part of the “Summer of Love” in San Francisco. This is where I had my first experience with psychedelics.

I moved to Ashland where I opened the first City and State licensed Massage Studio across from the college. Then I went across the street and enrolled in the college, now Southern Oregon University. I graduated with a Masters Degree in Psychology and Education.

My internship at the CARE Unit was a thirty-day residential treatment center and medical detox center, which became my first job in recovery. I became a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, Master’s Level (CADC III).

After a significant loss in my life, I went to WinterSpring Center for Grief and Loss first as a client and then as a facilitator of the Sudden Loss group. I worked at the Allied Medication Assisted Treatment Program for Opioid Addiction (2016-2020).

I have my private practice now counseling those dealing with addiction and/or grief. Then I became an Oregon Licensed Psilocybin Facilitator in 2023 and now am very excited to be able to add this powerful tool to my work!

Now, when I facilitate psilocybin sessions I establish a place that is safe to share and bear witness to what was shared, and as much as possible to stay out of the way of the individual’s journey. As a psilocybin facilitator, I bring over 50 years of experience working with various altered states.

What I have learned about psilocybin facilitation is that the best way to have a productive session is preparation. We will spend as much time as needed to help you feel ready and as much time as you need to integrate your trip a day or so after the experience. We will work in person initially, and afterwards either in person or via my telehealth portal. The psilocybin session is done at one of the three service centers in Ashland, Oregon.

Contact me today for questions and more information through Psychology Today’s Therapist Finder for Ashland, Oregon. You can also call me at (541)625-1159.

Sincerely,

    Meixa Marie Shore

    With over two decades immersed in plant medicine ceremonies, I merge my roles as a Birth Doula, End-Of-Life Doula, Somatic Therapist and Movement Educator with a profound reverence for psilocybin’s transformative power. 

    Through the labyrinth of chronic pain and childhood trauma, I was blessedly unearthed by the implosive power of psilocybin, a sacred key that unlocked the gates to deep healing and inner awakening. My path has been one of beautiful discovery, where the mystical properties of psilocybin intertwine with the somatic realms of the body, offering a holistic approach to healing and growth.

    At threshold points in our life we need to be with who we have been in order to make space for who we want and need to be.  We all suffer.  We all want and need love. We all need forgiveness.  We all desire freedom. What do you really want from this voyage and from life? 

    As a Mother, I infuse my practice with compassion, and a deep connection to the wisdom of the body. Love, in infinite waves guides my way.

    My mission is to serve as a vessel of presence for healing, supporting others along the path of self-discovery and transformation. With an open heart and a reverence for the vastness of existence, I would be honored to be with you as you go deep and deeper in the voyage of your inner space.
