Amanda Schendel’s Couragous Integration recognizes that while on a  mission to integrate other states of consciousness, we can all benefit from a one-on-one counselor.  She believes that integrating a transformative experience requires care, love, understanding, and support. The Buena Vida's Psychedelic Integration takes a harm reduction approach emphasizing accurate information, education, and safety. She is committed to serving individuals who are interested in working with expanded states of consciousness. She helps with their personal transformation by empowering clients with tools, supporting through challenges, and easing the process of integration back into daily life. Her aim is to provide a supportive container, inspire confidence, encourage self-love and make sure your psychedelic experience transforms the old into the brand new!


Psychedelic integration is a reorganization of the mind, body, and spirit after an experience of a non-ordinary state of consciousness instigated by a psychedelic or entheogenic substance. Integration involves psychological and somatic processing of the experience and a successful assimilation of insights into one’s life for the purpose of growth and well-being.
