About the Book
The ceremony is only the beginning. Integrating your experiences is critical to transformation. Without it, you risk becoming fractured and destabilized. This book helps you understand how you can embrace your work with visionary plants fully.
Have you ever had any of these thoughts:
How much ceremony is too much ceremony?
When is ceremony not the best next step?
If your shaman is not from your culture or local to you, what can you do to integrate after a ceremony?
What do you do when ceremony reveals trauma?
How can you ground your work with visionary plants and "walk the teachings" in your daily life?
After the Ceremony Ends helps you understand how you can embrace your work with visionary plants much more fully so that you can heal more profoundly and grow from the place of your deepest authenticity.
The ceremony is only the beginning: Integrating your experiences is critical to your transformation and, without it, you risk becoming more fractured and destabilized. Learn how to work with visionary plants more consciously to find the wholeness and freedom that you seek!
Dr. Coder has produced by far the best and most honest manual to help people maximize the benefits of visionary plant experiences and deals realistically with the impact and limitations of ceremonies. While acknowledging and applauding the incredible breakthroughs and insights that happen in sessions, she lays out a series of alternatives to extend and deepen the lessons that arise from the often confusing inner landscapes that one encounters. I am grateful to be able to recommend this important follow up for anyone doing ceremonies and for individuals at any level of training who are offering or guiding others. This guidebook is a necessity.
James Fadiman, The Psychedelic Explorer's Guide
An insightful and comprehensive guide that assists explorers on the visionary plant medicine path to better understand and integrate the complexities of their journeys and move forward with greater clarity and wisdom. Highly recommended.

A ubiquitous hunger for wholeness, purpose and meaning is accelerating the demand for Plant Spirit Medicines around the world. But the same conditions that drive this hunger mean most Westerners are ill equipped to manage and integrate the peak experiences occasioned by these powerful substances. Coder's guidebook provides a welcomed anecdote to the common misconception that Plant Spirit Medicines are a shortcut to healing. Through careful study and personal experience, she skillfully impresses upon us that deep and sustainable emotional healing is a process requiring courage, fortitude, and most of all effort. This practical guidebook is a must read for those considering or currently using Plant Spirit Medicine in their healing journeys.
