There’s something magical when women come together to share their stories.
Simply by being present, listening to others and being our divine feminine selves, we offer each other grace and connection. Coming together in a spirited way to unpack insightful, terrifying, confusing, and magical experiences, we get a chance to heal, raise the vibration and the quality of connection for us, our community, and the world.
SIP integration circles are a safe space to meet with like-minded female-identifying individuals. Our circles give women an opportunity to meditate together, share their stories, ask questions, give and receive feedback.
This circle is led by Helena & Elyssa.
Helena Zhu has been exploring and growing through psychedelics for five years. She comes from a social science background both in work and academia— she has a particular appreciation for contexts, cultures, and humans. Helena works as a facilitator of a powerful psychedelic called 5-MeO-DMT with her partner. She also organizes a facilitator circle, an integration circle, and a workshop for training facilitators.
Helena is in the process of exploring her own connection to femininity and feels curious about what a container of women could bring to all of our integration and manifestation. She looks forward to facilitating and holding the space for whatever needs to be expressed, witnessed, and shared.
Elyssa Carroll Goldman is a Registered Clinical Counsellor who enjoys supporting people with care, curiosity and respect as they navigate life’s challenges. She is passionate about human connection, learning and having fun.
She holds a master’s degree in Counselling Psychology and has completed additional training in Psychedelic Assisted Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Somatic Therapy, Trauma-Informed Yoga, Numa Breathwork, Gottman method couples therapy and Non-Violent Crisis Intervention.
This event is hosted by Field Trip Health

Join us to check out the calm, spa-like clinic which was intentionally designed to be comfortable and safe to facilitate healing.
SIP circles were previously “by donation” events. Unfortunately, due to the number of no-shows coupled with long wait lists, many women were missing out on the opportunity to attend. That’s why we have implemented a small fee. If cost is a barrier for you, please reach out for a scholarship.
