Unlock the Potential of Psychedelics

safely navigate your own psychedelic journey at home

FAQ: Can I make a psychedelic journey at home?

Yes, you can!

While 1-on-1 truffle sessions and group retreats certainly have their merits, I strongly believe that psychedelics can also be effectively used outside those contexts. Provided that you are healthy and that no contraindications apply to you. With a proper preparation and a carefully designed setting, you can safely and responsibly undertake a journey at home.

My online DIY course demonstrates how to safely craft your own psychedelic journey at home, utilizing tools from my private practice. It is fueled by my passion to introduce others to the magical world of psychedelics in a safe and responsible way.

 

FAQ: How does this differ from a guided session in your practice?

First of all:

The DIY course is designed for low to moderate dosages. Especially for beginners, higher doses are only safe and responsible with professional guidance.

🤿 You can compare it to the difference between snorkeling and scuba diving. For both activities, you enter the water and you can see and experience some of the same things. But with scuba diving you go deeper, which entails more risks and thus requires proper guidance.

A second important difference:

If you come to my practice for a guided journey, I will take the entire practical organization out of your hands. This makes it a fully catered experience. This entails a significant number of working hours on my part. which is refected in the cost.

💶 The investment for the DIY course is about 1/10 of the investment for a guided 1-on-1 session with magic truffles in my practice.
