Jennifer began her in-depth inquiry into the nature of reality and the inner workings of the mind (heart) after a life-changing backpacking journey to Asia in her late teens where she discovered both Tibetan Buddhism and the sacred use of psychedelic medicines. Over the last 13 years, she has spent over 800 days in meditation retreat under the close guidance and tutelage of her Tibetan Buddhist teacher. She also holds a degree in Social Anthropology from Sussex University, and has trained as an integrative transpersonal psychotherapist at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education, London. In 2018, she began facilitating psilocybin-assisted retreats and co-directing the Psychedelic Society's Experience Retreats programme, eventually leading to the founding of Alalaho. For her, this precious work is all about supporting the unfolding of the infinite vitality, wisdom and potential that lies at the core of our being… just like the blossoming of a lotus.
