Ancient history of Magic Mushrooms
“Just like any good trip, the history of psilocybin has many colorful and surprising turns.” by Kiki Dy
Preparing appropriate settings for above threshold doses
The Zendo Project is an organization sponsored by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), and they focus on psychedelic harm reduction. They acknowledge that millions of people every year experience psychedelics outside of a supervised medical context and work to ensure people do them as safely as possible.
Psychedelic Support and Integration
“ tam integration is a simple and sweet community group founded with the intention of bringing together people who are deeply committed to personal transformation, and interested in psychedelics and meditation, to learn and practice techniques that develop insight, empathy, and confidence, so that we can be more present, joyful, and resourceful both inside and outside the ceremony space.”
This year, millions of people will use psychedelics outside of supervised medical contexts, many of them for the first time. Taking psychedelics can result in overwhelming and uncomfortable experiences, more likely with high doses, amongst first-time users, and without adequate preparation or setting. Psychedelic harm reduction includes a variety of methods to help prevent and transform difficult experiences while in a non-ordinary state of consciousness.
The Zendo Project provides professional comprehensive harm reduction education and support for communities to help inform and transform difficult psychedelic experiences into opportunities for learning and growth.
