A Teacher, Visionary Creatix, Poet of the unconscious, and Mother.
I am best known for my pioneering methods in the field of psychedelic integration, community activism and leadership, including founding 5 psychedelic harm reduction organizations.
I am now now focused on helping folx come into right-relationship with psychedelics through professional training programs for psychedelic integration providers and emerging creative leaders.
My heartfelt passion is creating a psychedelic-positive counterculture and empowering others to step into radical authenticity/radical action to co-create a just world.
That said - while I AM many things, no role in this lifetime is mine to own.
As a seeker of dharmic truth my personal journey has been, much like Yours, filled with twists, turns and calls for continuous realignment.
I was raised in a humble Middle-Eastern family who landed in California from Israel and lived through the challenges of immigration, verbal & physical abuse, instability, scarcity, codependency, mental dis-ease, spiritual disconnect, failed relationships, multiple unfulfilling jobs, and heavy religious and cultural conditioning around the roles I am expected to fulfill, and who I am expected to be.
As a psychology student, Jungian theory has provided me a language to what I felt I always knew and could never explain; synthetic psychedelics and plant medicines introduced an expansive level of awareness that has put the locust of power to fulfill my destiny back in my own hands.
Psychedelic integration has helped me unlearn malware, trauma and limiting beliefs; learn to manage symptoms of Bi-Polar disorder, PTSD, ADHD, Anxiety, and overcome postpartum depression; and recalibrate my soul’s code to fit my human existence.
In a short timeframe, this lifestyle has illuminated my deepest wounds and unveiled nothing less than miracles and magick in my life, and in the lives of those around me.
In this process of psychic shadow meandering I have disowned, killed and buried my inner Artist - then fetched it from the grave to resurrect and allow her to guide my path and create new radical culture in this human playground.
The adversities that have been in inseparable part of my life have been alchemized towards Self-ownership and a deeper understanding of my soul's dharma - it is the ultimate fuel for my radical actions towards social justice and contributions to the field.
Now, my interest lies in wild spiritual esthetique as an embodied reminder of our connection with nature’s exuberance as we make individual and collective efforts to return to the land and to eachother.
As a recovering workaholic and after many years of “doing the work” to heal, I’ve come to understand healing as a natural byproduct of play.
The Psyched Soul is a labor of love, birthed as an expression of my subjective experience and what I have learned through my work in the field of professional psychedelic support since 2015.
I am dedicated to guiding others to reclaim their soul poetry, playful sovereignty and masterfully surf the edge of I’M/possibility through sustainable service.
My hope is that it inspires and guides my tribe - those psychenauts becoming aware of the depth and limitless nature of their Spirit, and hearing the call to be of service in the psychedelic renaissance - to step into their purpose with conviction, confidence and ecstatic curiosity - while armed with the tools to ethically create positive collective evolution.

The Psyched Soul Mission Statement
We are on a mission to inspire new paradigms in wellness, business and spirituality through normalizing the perfection in weirdness. We aim to create a world that celebrates the beauty in diversity and authenticity. We believe in psychedelics as a medium for unleashing wild esthetique; integration as a tool of creative embodiment and innovation; and Soulpreneurship as a vehicle for social justice.
It all began with an integration realization: We’re not here to work (!!) So we don’t “do the work”!
We cannot, must not and will not wait to “first heal” before sharing our gifts! There is medicine in every soul and at every stage of human development.
So we playfully and joyfully forge a path of empowered psycho-spiritual integration and Self-ownership to create a purpose-filled life of paradise in the here and now.
Higher visions become daily reality as we move from soul-recovery to discovery to divine embodiment.
In this creative process of Becoming the past is shed naturally, healed in beauty; one’s truth and life-purpose come to light through artistic action.
The result: your unique soul’s genius-code is translated into a spiritually-aligned, financially-rewarding vocation that not only sets your soul on fire - it propels positive social impact and shifts paradigms before your very eyes.
We rejoice in the beauty of life and our humanity through recreating each every moment with playful joy
We approach our mission with the purpose of sparking transformation. We incorporate feminine-focus and mindfulness and appreciate the presence-process in aligned action
We are on a soul-filled mission of a return to wholeness and remembrance of our w-holy truth, to merge the psyche+mind+body, psychedelic realm+human experience, individual+collective, harmony with nature.
We revel in an abundance of time that inspires spirit-led creation in ease, breath, flow, Self-honor & sacred ritual
We are all multidimensional creatives by design and accept our role as god's artists. Our life and our existence is our art and it is through our 3-D embodiment that Source is made real.
We authentically and creatively share the full spectrum of our humanity, of our pure Self and all of our parts. We take courageous action to share our perfect-imperfect art and wild magic transmuted into service and social change. We dare to free our soul-medicine.
In our Self-realization we are reclaiming our truth as Psyched Souls: aligned, abundant and free spirits - and inspire our human family to “Get Psyched”!
We participate in sacred reciprocity by giving back a portion of our proceeds to help create the world we believe in.
Psychedelic Activism, Inclusion & Sacred Reciprocity
Integration sophistication is a mere re-integration back into the environment that has shaped us - to reimagine, reinvent and reshape the way we relate with others, with nature, and with our planet.
The Psyched Soul is founded upon the notion that it is up to each of Us to create the reality, world and life we desire to live.
Our organization values social justice, accessibility and inclusion opportunities to marginalized groups.
Sacred reciprocity is an integral part of our business model and a portion of the earnings are recycled into the causes that align with our value system.
WE ARE A RADICAL ORGANIZATION THAT BELIEVES IN RADICAL ACTION
PsychedeLiA Integration, Los Angeles, is a 501c3 registered non-profit organization founded by Shiri in January 2017, in the back of a small spiritual boutique. Today, it provides a range of low-cost integration circles, accessible psychedelic education seminars, and donation-based social events for the community, and has served tens of thousands of people across the greater Los Angeles area and globally. Truly the definition of grassroots organization causing much-needed social shifts, it has inspired a movement and the sprouting of multiple integration communities across the world. The pride of PsychedeLiA is the 'Integration Fund': a bank assisting marginalized and underserved persons that have been subjected to systemic forms of discrimination such as BIPOC and LGBTQ+ populations. This bank provides scholarships for subsidized psychedelic integration therapy or psychedelic integration coaching support (and in the near future psychedelic treatments themselves). The organization is fully upheld by local volunteers who contribute their time to keep it operational. It is funded solely from income generated by events, and the generosity of people like You. Make a tax-deductible donation to the fund or apply to receive the benefits here: https://www.psychedeliaintegration.org/donate
ACCESSIBILITY & INCLUSIVITY
Psyched Soul programs and services offer reduced tuition rates and expanded scholarships to minorities including people who self-identify as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, immigrants and Veterans.
A portion of profits are circulated back to causes that align with our values.
