Yesterday was the day – I had my 15min of fame first as a (mostly sobbing) character in the Mind Explorers documentary where we attempt to challenge the stigma around psilocybin and promote its use as part of mental health treatment as well as spiritual growth, and then during Q&A on stage of Rio Cinema. I was a nervous wreck, gladly most of the questions were addressed to the actual experts – a psychedelic guide and a neuroscientist. The documentary goes live on Youtube on December 13th, I will share the link here. Interestingly, this article came out recently and it’s about the same retreat that I went to – psychedelics on Forbes? Plant medicines are going mainstream, folks.
I am happy that the experience was a useful one. But presumably far from a one stop end to existential anxiety?
Oh absolutely nowhere near! It’s an extraordinary experience resetting the brain (akin to shaking a snow globe) but work is required to make sense of it, over months, years and as I hear even lifetime! And not always it makes sense, changes may be very subtle.
