Our Process & Approach
The 5 Essential Elements of a Transformational Psychedelic Experience
We’ve identified the 5 essential elements to potentially life-changing psychedelic experiences:
- Intention Setting
The inclusion of these 5 elements is what facilitates the transformational change that our clients seek. Our 1-on-1 ceremonial program was specifically created around these elements in an effort to help you realize your intentions.
**Psychedelic Passage does not provide psychoactive or controlled substances nor are we licensed therapists, counselors, or medical professionals. We are a harm reduction company offering trip sitting & integration coaching services.**
Our Experienced Facilitators Will Help You:
Stay committed and accountable to the work
Our programs are specifically designed to serve you and keep you moving toward your goals and intentions, which can (and often do) take more than a single ceremony. Healing is not a linear path, nor is it always easy—but we’re here to support you at every step of the way. You shouldn’t be expected to solve all of your life problems in one evening. Most people need multiple sessions with support and accountability along the way to really get to the root of an issue. We are committed to you, and you must be committed to yourself and the process.
Adequately prepare your mind(set)
Psychedelics crack you wide open; exposing you to the parts of yourself you try to ignore. Together, we’ll work to clarify your intention during the preparation sessions leading up to the experience—this will serve as your anchor as you explore the depths of your psyche. We’ll also equip you with a mental or spiritual framework to use when navigating these altered states of consciousness. With our support, you’ll be ready to face whatever arises head on.
Choose substance and dosage for your desired outcome
Taking too much of any psychedelic is not fun, nor is it helpful. Should you consume LSD, magic mushrooms, or DMT? We’ll provide you with researched information to help you choose the correct substance and dosage based on your location and your needs. Regardless of your intention or goals, we’ll co-create a plan that addresses all the variables, improving your chances of achieving your desired outcome.
Create the optimal environment for your psychedelic journey
Setting is one of the most important factors influencing the psychedelic experience. We’ll work together to create a space that is safe, comfortable, and conducive to healing. This includes eliminating physical hazards, reducing external distractions, and adding elements like lighting, music, blankets, and water.
Facilitate your intentional psychedelic experience (trip sitting)
It’s important that you feel safe and supported by a sober sitter you trust. We’ll be alongside you for the entire journey, ensuring that you are never alone. We facilitate your inner healing by holding a welcoming, supportive, non-judgmental space. We utilize proven harm reduction principles to mitigate risk and potential for physical harm.
Re-frame the meaning of a bad trip
Bad trips are simply misunderstood experiences, though that doesn’t make them any less overwhelming. They are typically the result of a lack of preparation. We’ll equip you with tools to work through potentially intense psychedelic experiences more gracefully. The important part is to know that even if you feel uncomfortable, it is not permanent, and you are never alone.
Integrate the lessons from your experience into everyday life
Insights from these states of altered consciousness can be difficult to process, let alone implement into your day-to-day existence. In the weeks following your experience, we’ll schedule integration calls to help you implement your realizations into tangible actions. We’ll help you hold onto the magic of your journey by acting as a non-biased support system.
