About our Team
Founding Pastor and Integration Coach
Derek is a 45 year old father of 3 children – Dylan, Althea, and Zoe. He grew up bouncing back and forth between Massachusetts and Florida. A survivor of tremendous abuse in many forms, Derek came to the medicine in 2017 after a decade long battle with addiction that was starting to get away from him.
Head of Integration
Alex grew up in Rhode Island, currently living in (divine) Providence. From a very young age, she felt the call to help those who are suffering. This led her to pursue a degree in nursing at the University of Rhode Island. She graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2018. She then began a career working in intensive care, later moving to inpatient psychiatry and community health settings. No matter the health care setting, she felt there was something missing. She began feeling disheartened by the lack of healing and empowerment offered in our Western medical system, which eventually she could no longer ignore. Seeking answers both for her own personal healing and for the healing of the community, she received the call to Ayahuasca in 2021 and journeyed to Peru on a trip that altered the trajectory of her life.
Alex is currently offering donated-based (pay-what-you-can) integration support to ensure those in need may receive support and assistance along their journey.
*Unfortunately at this time she can not offer medical advice. This support is not a substitute for medical, psychological, or psychiatric attention.
Over the past 8 years Zach has dedicated himself to the study and integration of shamanic healing practices. As a student of Sacred Medicines and Meditation, he has traveled to numerous sacred sites in Brazil, Peru, and Colombia to heal himself and train with guardians of the medicine.
