Rev. Kristen Psaki, M.Div
Kristen is an ordained Unitarian Universalist Minister and lifelong seeker of the sacred. Living in growing reverence to the ancient wisdom of plants and the Indigenous cultures that preserved these medicines, Kristen trusts in the transformative power of Love and roots deeply in the knowing that healing and justice are possible in this life.
Kristen received her Masters of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in NYC (2014) with a focus in Psychology & Religion and a concentration in Depth Theology, a Jungian-rooted approach to unlocking the mysteries of Psyche & Soul, an approach which informs her life and work as a minister and a guide. She also holds advanced training in Mindfulness-Based Psychedelic Therapy through Level 2 of Psychedelic Sitters School (2018) with Medicinal Mindfulness. Kristen identifies as a white, cis-gendered, queer and temporarily able-bodied woman who grew up with class privilege. She invites the conscious and creative exploration of systems of oppression into healing journeys knowing personal and collective liberation are deeply connected and that all of us – need all of us – to be free.
Lover of ritual and forever a student of the unseen world, Kristen was raised Catholic and joined an evangelical Christian community as a teenager before surrendering into the guidance of Buddhism and the practice of Yoga as a young adult. She currently finds connection and truth through the earth-based practices of her ancestors and welcomes your path just as it is.
Kristen specializes in psychedelic-assisted spiritual companionship through or outside of the context of a religious tradition. Whether healing from a tradition from your childhood that could not see your magnificence, desiring to deepen in your faith as it is, following that bone-deep longing to pray or praise for the very first time, or just caught in big questions or big struggles – Kristen partners with psychedelics to create spaces to move toward the questions, the pain, and the beauty of life as you explore healing and wholeness. Trained as an end-of-life and crisis chaplain, Kristen also specializes in psychedelic-assisted grief work as well as psychedelic-assisted spiritual companionship through death and dying knowing that death and grief must be held in community.
