“I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.” - Rabindranath Tagore
My name is Vanessa Crites and I am a Psychospiritual Integration Specialist & Coach, Sacred Medicine Ceremony Facilitator and Microdosing Guide. A lifelong seeker of Spiritual connection and healing, I began my Medicine path in 2016 with a meticulously intentioned Stamets Stack microdose protocol. I was working in search of healing, deeper meaning, and greater understanding of the complexity of being here, human - this day would forever change the trajectory of my life.
I am a Mother, Mentor, Artist and a person in long-term recovery who has more than 17 years of 12-step recovery experience and expertise, leading one-on-one mentorship and group sessions, and 6 years of psychospiritual Sacred Medicine work to deepen my inner knowing, consciousness expansion, and a closer connection to Source and to the Planet.
From a profoundly empathetic place and no-nonsense approach, I walk alongside clients to get to the Truth and to find the Higher Self from a place of radical curiosity and acceptance with the goal of transforming core wounds to discover the true nature of the Ego and deconstruct limiting beliefs.
Your voice matters.
Your experience matters.
Your truth matters.
Devoted to dropping pretense, stigma, and judgment, I work with clients to develop a practice of sitting with our experiences, processing them in a safe, observational way, with no pressure to fix, change or alter to discover our own personal Truth. I believe that only focusing on "love and light" and bypassing the darker side of life invalidates the true complexity and value that pain, grief, trauma, longing, suffering, and fear have as profound teachers in our human experience - all of it is honored as valuable and not something to be fixed or pathologized, but rather embraced.
I believe that we each are our own healers and can deeply trust our own innate instinct once we learn to listen to it. I care most deeply about all of us experiencing personal freedom. From a place of deep listening, I help clients uncover their own truth – I do not fix or heal, nor do I claim to have any answers, I simply hold the container, with gentle firmness, walking alongside clients as they find their own truth, develop practices that work to promote personal healing and enlightenment, awareness and non-attachment, and gain access to their highest purpose.
I am ever on a path of study, training, and service to these Sacred Medicine Teachers and to the awakening of human consciousness.
