It provided deep knowledge and a safe container, while building my courage and confidence to embark on big things. I loved the feeling of connection, along with the breadth of knowledge offered.

“I enjoyed the online immersion class very much! Nicole is knowledgeable, organized, and generously shared a wealth of helpful information. I was comfortable sharing my experiences within this intimate group and benefited from their support. I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in the enhancement of spiritual growth through medicine journeys.

This is an opportunity to introduce yourself to your travel companions and activate your intentions and prayers within the group field. 

You’ll begin to gather essential tools and resources and orient your compass to the journey ahead. A journal will help you keep track of your experience. 

Learn about the cultivation and care of your Sacred Mushroom spirit friends, and begin to consider optimal strategies for your journey day.



You are at the Center of the container for this journey. You’ll establish the creation of sacred space and a protective energy field to build upon in the weeks ahead.

Go within to clarify areas that require more balance, then start to map out the daily / weekly personal practices that will support your process for the remainder of the immersion.



Identify areas of blockage or stagnation in your body, and begin a somatic dialogue to discover parts and archetypes. 

Tune into vibrational imprints and archetypes you are holding and discern how the frequencies of your inner and outer landscape are impacting you.

Play with different methods of running energy through your field and connecting with expanded states to shift your experience of reality.



This is the week you have been preparing for, you’re self-guided journey.

Spend time in nature prior to your ceremony. Engage in “cross-species communication” with the natural world and document any insights that support the intentions, archetypes, and energies you have been connecting with. 

Choose a full-day and a sacred space where you will enact a self-designed ceremony with your sacred mushroom allies. 

Document poignant themes, insights, and experiences from your journey.

Reach out to our group container for support as desired.



Your return to the day world should be approached full of care and intention. There may be tender realizations and experiences that require compassionate self-acceptance.

In the first week following a Journey, it’s very useful to document themes and insights that emerge.

Elaborate on the perceived meaning, visions, or actions that will move you forward. Review and identify immediate steps that you’ll take to align with the gifts you are returning with.

Note the energetics and resources that will enable you to step forward with Love.



The essence of integration is unification. It’s aligning with your “Sacred Yes and Sacred No” to make better decisions that come from wholeness, rather than wounds. 

It’s the embodiment of the sacred archetypes and elements that are ready and capable to lead. It’s allowing yourself to be guided by the Spirit Realms, affirmed in your abilities, purpose, and gifts.

You’ll clarify your values, mission, and vision and live into who you’ll need to become to bring this into the world. 



It’s important to bring energy and clarity to the vision you are holding, then give it space free from attachment to evolve into its intended form. 

Our final Practice Temple will be held within a one month timeframe, changing up the weekly pace.

You’ll be able to review what’s shifted in your life, receive mirroring and recognition for how far you have come, and show up with renewed purpose and energy as you pass into the next phase of your soul assignment.

I’m Nicole Lilly and I’ll be your Guide on this Journey.

After 12 years in the Healing Arts, it hit me one day coming out of a self-guided mushroom journey. “I am still contributing to a broken hierarchical system.”

Over time, culture has eroded our embodied wisdom to care for ourselves and our loved ones – physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

Restoring this connection is really why I entered the Healing Arts. 

It started with yoga, then my Masters in Somatic Psychology, bodywork, and many other modalities. In 2018, I became immersed in supporting entheogenic and psychedelic services having already had significant personal experiences.

Though truly, I’ve never felt like I fit any one paradigm. They all hold just on part of the truth.

And honestly, the psychedelic world has quite a few fake shamans and people who are leading with a bad ego trip. That’s traumatizing, not healing.

So it became apparent that the task I was being assigned was to carve my own path where I can integrate and shine my unique gifts in the world. 

When I fully released the status quo by not renewing my psychotherapy registration, I became amplified with more creativity, sovereignty, and aliveness.

Stepping fully into my vocation to be aligned with soul and spirit, everything changed. I am a work in progress, evolving and integrating like everyone else. 

And I’ve learned some valuable things along the way that I’d like to share. 

This path is not the easy path. It’s not for the faint of heart. It’s for the visionary warrior spirits who know they are here to help birth a collective paradigm shift. 

Together, we can reclaim the inner guide and create a new paradigm that serves.

I found this immersion to be empowering and inspiring. I feel more confident about exploring and creating my own personal ceremony. Nicole generously shared so many great resources and her own content. Nicole is brilliant , engaging and so supportive.

Other Questions & Answers

How do I sign up? Is everyone approved?

You must meet the criteria for participation outlined above in “Is this Online Immersion for You?”

Upon registration, you will be sent an email with information to schedule a 30-minute Welcome session with Nicole. If it is determined in that session that you do not meet the criteria provided, or other contraindications are found, you may be asked to take additional actions to meet the criteria or have your registration cancelled. 

Will I receive individual 1:1 support?

This is an online group container where you will receive support alongside other participants. This online immersion is designed to provide you with education and support in a communal setting.

The immersion includes 1x 30-minute Welcome call with Nicole to finalize your registration and share your visions for the immersion.

If you would like to receive personalized support you are encouraged to invest in the package that includes 2 Private Sessions with Nicole

Is this legal?

Yes. This online immersion is providing you with education, which is entirey legal.

If you are concerned about the legal status of sacred mushrooms where you live, it is your responsibility to research this and know how to protect yourself from harmful outcomes. You assume all liability for actions pursued outside of receiving the education provided in this course.

Will you supply mushrooms?

No. You are responsible for your own mushroom cultivation.

You will be provided information to order cultivation supplies from a trustworthy source. These supplies offer a very simple, fail-proof method that is available for you to cultivate mushrooms at home. Home cultivation is a valuable process to accompany the education offered in this course.

These supplies are not included in the financial investment for the online immersion and will be your sole responsibility to procure through an independent party. The additional cost for the mushroom cultivation supplies shipped directly to you is $80 – as a bonus, for each kit purchased a kit is also sent to a veteran in need.

Can I participate without mushrooms?

Yes. The methods that will be shared are beneficial practices without the use of any psychedelics or psychotropics. The methods may also apply to other plant-based psychedelics and sacred molecules.

However, there will be discussion and education about the use of sacred mushrooms in these practices, so you must be comfortable with this. If you aren’t, this is not the right course for you.

I have experience microdosing, is this a good fit

Yes. While microdosing will be a suggested practice in the beginning, you will still learn new and deeper ways to experience mushrooms and perhaps most importantly, yourself!

One thing that sets this immersion apart from microdosing courses is the emphasis on holistic practices that are more about your life journey.

This immersion includes distinct approaches focused on low to mid-level mushroom experiences, so you can feel confident about most effectively guiding your own experiences.

What if I’m interested in high doses of mushrooms?

This immersion is intended to help you receive the most benefit from low and mid-doses of mushrooms for solo journeys, not high doses of mushrooms.

While some of the methods can be helpful for higher level journeys, this will not be explicitly supported in this course. Please practice harm reduction and have a sitter or guide available if you engage in high doses.

Can I share the course with a friend or loved one?

If you have a friend or loved one that you would like to journey with, please share this website with them.

Have them let us know you referred them to receive FREE ATTENDANCE at the next quarterly Luminous Spiral Session. 

Please refrain from sharing any and all confidential and copyrighted course materials with anyone who has not formally registered. This would violate the terms & conditions agreement for the immersion.

Do you offer payment plans or scholarships?

If you require the 2-payment plan, please note this on your application. At this time, scholarships are not available.

This educational immersion represents a significant investment of resources from the practitioner over the years to attain the necessary level of expertise and practice to create the content.

The investment level for this immersion is significantly more affordable than 1:1 session support, and is set at a price point that is a fair representation for the value received.

It is the mission of The Luminous Guide to participate in regenerative economic practices, which means working with project partners who are local or within our immediate U.S. ecosystem when possible.

I want to be a tripsitter or facilitator, can I sign up?

This immersion is intended to provide methods and education for self-guided journeys at home, not as vocational training.

Everyone who is interested in becoming a professional in the psychedelic space needs substantial personal practice of their own. If you are interested in the immersion for this reason you are encouraged to apply.

That said, this is not a psychedelic facilitator training, and you will not be permitted to use nor teach this format for financial or professional gain per the terms & agreements of this course.

All works are protected by copyright and terms of the course agreement.
