Looking at doing psilocybin? Start here...

Updated: Feb 9

What are psychedelics?

Psychedelics are a group of substances that can profoundly alter perception, thoughts, and feelings. They are often associated with vivid sensory experiences and can open the door to introspection and self-discovery. Some people use them for their potential therapeutic benefits, while others seek unique or spiritual experiences. It's essential to approach them with caution, respect, and in a safe, "controlled" environment.


What is Psilocybin?

Psilocybin is a natural compound found in certain mushrooms, often referred to as "magic mushrooms." When ingested, it can induce altered states of consciousness, leading to vivid hallucinations, changes in perception, and introspective experiences. Psilocybin is being studied for its potential therapeutic benefits, particularly in the context of mental health and well-being. It is this compound that is being measured for dosage under Oregon’s new law.


Is a psychedelic experience right for me?

Only you know that for sure. Deciding if a psychedelic experience is appropriate for you involves considering your mental health, personal goals, support system, and openness to the journey's unpredictability. It's crucial to prioritize safety, research the specific substance, and evaluate your health. Additionally, your willingness to invest in the integration process, where you apply insights from the experience to your life, is a key factor in the impact of the journey experience.

While indigenous people have been using psychedelic for time immoral, there is a resurgence in it's interest by Western culture and Oregon is the first state in the United States to legalize it.


This blog will be where I offer:

  • What Oregon's model looks like

  • The facilitator's role in psilocybin journeying

  • Risks and benefits of psilocybin journeying

  • Ethical conversations happening in this space

  • Supplying video, articles, and research for consideration

  • And more!

My lens is primarily through the social justice, harm reduction, and trauma informed perspective. I value integrity and transparency. I am in service to those who are marginalized, objectified, and oppressed on a daily basis. 

I do not claim to be an expert in this area. There are people who have been doing this work for a long time and are at the pulse of the movement. Please feel free to offer comments or additional insights in the comments! I just ask that you reflect on your offer of knowledge to see if it perpetuates harm to any culture, community, or individual and if it does that you refrain from sharing or ask for support on how to contribute without causing further harm.
