Trip Sitting & Guiding in California

We Provide Trip Sitting Services in The Following Cities:

The decriminalization of psychedelics in certain states and cities has allowed us to trip sit for people like you while drastically reducing the risk of criminal repercussions (psychedelics are still federally illegal substances). The one caveat to us being able to provide trip sitting and guiding services in decriminalized areas is that you must procure your substance of choice for personal consumption—we are unable to help with sourcing.

We are here to facilitate intentional psychedelic experiences where you feel supported along the entire journey—from preparation to sacred ceremonial experience to integration. We facilitate your inner healing by holding a safe, comfortable, non-judgmental space.

**Psychedelic Passage does not provide psychoactive or illicit substances nor are we licensed therapists. We are a trip sitting service operating within the legal realm as individuals who identify as being knowledgeable in personal development, non-ordinary states of consciousness, and harm reduction techniques.**

Trip Sitting in Oakland, CA

On June 5th, 2019, Oakland became the second U.S. city to decriminalize plant- and fungi- based psychedelics with the unanimous passing of a city council resolution “supporting entheogenic plant practices and declaring that the investigation and arrest of individuals involved with the adult use of entheogenic plants on the Federal Schedule 1 list be amongst the lowest priority for the city of Oakland”.

The resolution also states that Oakland shall not “use any city funds or resources to assist in the enforcement of laws imposing criminal penalties for the personal use and personal possession of Entheogenic Plants by adults.”

Decriminalized Substances (That We Sit With):

NOTE: This means that synthetic psychedelics like LSD, Ketamine, and MDMA are not decriminalized—therefore, we are unable to facilitate experiences with these substances until the legislation changes.

Trip Sitting in Santa Cruz, CA

On January 28th, 2020, Santa Cruz became the third U.S. city to decriminalize natural psychedelics with the unanimous passing of a city council resolution “declaring that the investigation and arrest of individuals twenty-one (21) years of age and older involved with the adult personal use and personal possession of entheogenic psychoactive plants and fungi listed on the Federal Schedule 1 list be amongst the lowest priorities for the City of Santa Cruz.”

The resolution “acknowledges that the use of entheogenic plants and fungi for health and spiritual well-being should be done in consultation with, and under the supervision of trained/medical professionals.”

Decriminalized Substances (That We Sit With):

NOTE: This means that synthetic psychedelics like LSD, Ketamine, and MDMA are not decriminalized—therefore, we are unable to facilitate experiences with these substances until the legislation changes.

The Future of Psychedelics in California

In November, 2020 Sen. Scott Wiener (D) stated that he plans to introduce the statewide decriminalization bill in Sacramento once the legislature returns in early January. Language of the proposal has yet to be released, but Wiener described the reform in a Twitter thread as an “important step toward a more rational, science-based, and public-health-focused approach to drugs.” Based on how Oregon voted on measure 110 and California’s history of cannabis reform, it is very likely that this bill will pass. We will continue to update this section as new developments arise.
