What is Tripsitting/Psychedelic Therapy?
Understanding Tripsitting and Psychedelic Therapy
In the realm of psychedelic journeys, a crucial aspect involves having a trusted companion, often referred to as a tripsitter, to provide grounding and ensure physical safety. While this practice is widely recognized, our approach takes it to a deeper level. We guide you through your subconscious mind, using your intentions as a guiding light.
We place immense faith in your inner wisdom, refraining from offering solutions but instead leading you to discover them within yourself. Even if you currently doubt your own clarity and wisdom, rest assured, our expertise lies in helping you access these inner resources.
During challenging moments, we assist you in embracing difficulties and surrendering to uncomfortable emotions. We guide you how to collaborate with possible resistance, transforming potentially frightening experiences into opportunities for profound awareness and bliss.
Psychedelics have the capacity to bring forth traumatic memories and repressed emotions, making them invaluable tools. In such instances, we not only create a safe space for you but also guide you through the process. By revisiting painful moments with your needs acknowledged, you can “complete” the experience, allowing the release of unprocessed emotions. This process enables you to reintegrate fragmented aspects of yourself, fostering inner wholeness and empowering you to move forward in life.
Additionally, we offer professional psychedelic coaching and counseling, addressing challenges in your work, business, relationships, and more. We also provide guidance on micro-dosing, tailoring our support to your unique needs.
If you fear a potentially challenging or frightening journey, rest assured that we can navigate these challenges together, guiding you towards a spiritual, liberating, and transformative healing experience.
Psychedelic therapy utilizes hallucinogenic substances to enhance therapeutic processes and has a historical basis in holistic medicine and spiritual traditions across cultures for millennia.
In the mid-20th century, extensive research into psychedelics was conducted until these substances were banned in the United States. Despite their illegal status, substances like LSD and psilocybin are believed to have therapeutic potential, especially in addressing conditions such as anxiety, depression, PTSD and addiction.
In recent decades, researchers have gained acceptance to conduct trials exploring the therapeutic applications of these substances. Studies have shown that psilocybin, for instance, not only proves to be safe but also elicits significant positive effects on well-being.
Varieties of Psychedelic Therapy in general
Psychedelic therapy encompasses a range of substances, each with distinct effects and potential applications:
Ayahuasca: Originating from South America, this brew is believed to aid in addiction, anxiety, and depression. However, caution is warranted due to possible side effects such as serotonin syndrome and interactions with medications.
LSD (Lysergic acid diethylamide): LSD induces altered mood, perception, and consciousness. It is being explored for its potential in treating addiction and anxiety.
Psilocybin: Similar to LSD, psilocybin alters consciousness, mood, and perceptions. Research is underway to investigate its efficacy in addressing addiction, anxiety, and depression.
MDMA : Although not a traditional psychedelic, MDMA produces psychedelic effects, including euphoria, altered perceptions, body arousal, and increased sociability. Studies suggest its therapeutic potential in treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
What Psychedelic Therapy Can Help With
Extensive research has shed light on the various therapeutic applications of psychedelic therapy . Studies indicate that conditions such as anxiety, depression, substance use disorders, alcohol dependency, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) could all see positive responses to treatments involving psychedelics.
Anxiety and Mood Disorders: Psychedelics show promise in alleviating mood disorders, offering potential benefits for individuals battling depression. A significant 2016 study, employing a randomized double-blind controlled trial, demonstrated substantial reductions in anxiety and depression among patients undergoing cancer treatment due to psilocybin therapy.
Alcohol and Substance Use Disorders: Early research pointed towards LSD's potential in aiding recovery from substance use disorders. More recent studies also support the idea that psychedelic therapy could hold potential as an effective treatment for addiction.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Research suggests that MDMA-assisted psychotherapy may prove valuable in addressing post-traumatic stress disorder. MDMA, known as the main component in the club drug ecstasy (or molly), exhibits psychedelic effects that have shown efficacy in treating severe forms of PTSD resistant to other forms of therapy.
