Preparing for a Psychedelic Experience - Grounding

The first steps in understanding yourself and learning to control your intentions and resilience.

Preparing for a psychedelic experience is preparing for disruption... You want to find in yourself the kind of flexibility that will enable you to become a larger person who is able to incorporate in yourself some of these energies when the experience is over.

 

Psychedelic experiences explore the components of your mind, and they offer the opportunity to rebuild, rearrange, or reinvent yourself. Whatever their origin, they are disruptive.

The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.”
—Michel de Montaigne

Psychedelic’s Anti-Therapeutic Promise

Psychedelic's Anti-Therapeutic Promise

Psychedelics are quickly becoming a new drug of promise, not for what psychedelics can do, but for what mental health practitioners want.

 

People want various things. Certainly, some do want healing, and some want entertainment, but some also want liberation from the normality that psychology aims to restore.

 

I support the renaissance in mind-altering drugs. They will help those people whose mental realities are stuck. Some of these people are labeled mentally ill, others are labeled psychologists, but most of these are just normal people.

Most things in the world are hype. Most things in the world are oversold and under-delivered. But, in my experience, sex, music, and psychedelics deliver. They are actually ‘better than advertised.’

Deprivation, Meditation, and Psychedelics

My approach to trance work grew from my interest in having new experiences and my questions about learning. From this outline you may see how our views compare.

“No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”
