Marc Aixalà – Psychedelic Integration: Psychotherapy for Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness
Synergetic Press, 2022

Based on both Marc Aixalà’s extensive experience in providing psychedelic integration services in several contexts and wide-ranging theoretical knowledge, this is a pioneering book-length exposition of an increasingly relevant topic. It presents careful historical and theoretical analysis of the concept, a useful cartography of why people seek psychedelic integration services, and, most notably, Aixalà’s therapeutic method, including both its theoretical foundations and its practical application with different types of clients.

The evident influence of Aixalà’s background in transpersonal psychology and appeals to Stanislav Grof’s theories may make some parts more appealing to some, but less palatable to others. In any case, this is a most valuable contribution to the literature – essential for anyone working in psychedelic integration, but worth reading for many others, too.
