Gillian Maxwell is based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. She is an experienced coach and facilitator, public speaker, and knowledge exchange broker and has been dedicated to the reform of drug policies nationally and internationally since 1999.

Many people are discovering plant medicines as a profound catalyst to awakening and hastening the alignment of their spiritual and personal paths. At times however the message is not clear and the person can feel somewhat adrift and left wondering what happened. The process of working with Gillian as an Integration Coach helps interpret peak and cathartic experiences and bring clarity and empowerment. This allows them to more fully understand their true selves in order to define who they are, and what they bring to their world.
Gillian is committed to raising consciousness and supporting its manifestation into the world. She feels that plant medicines play an important role in our ability to develop an authentic presence in the world that values love and compassion. She has extensive experience over a decade of working with entheogens in a ceremonial and traditional context, and brings this depth of knowledge, along with innate intuition and wisdom to her work as an Integration Coach.
A long-time resident of Strathcona, she lives happily with her beloved husband, Richard, their (spirit guide) dog, Brandy, and is the proud step-mother of two grown children.
