The Science of Psilocybin

As tribal people roamed the earth, they evolved. As an almost simultaneous result of an accelerated advance in our human evolution, the human race leapt forward in creativity, art, communication and language, cognition and more.  Different people from across the globe had accelerated evolutionary growth by consuming psychedelic plants; Ranging from the biblical Acacia tree (of life) to the Amanita Muscaria (a.k.a. Fly Agaric) and the indigenous brew Ayahuasca. However, most common were the Psilocybin mushrooms who are found throughout historic art, folk tales, myths and have found a way back into our modern world as plant medicine.

Psilocybin in Psychedelic Coaching

Fungi evolved over 1,5 billion years ago. With their intelligent and actively learning and experimenting external neurological network mycelium, they connect entire forests and seek out food. Psilocybin containing mushrooms are the subject of an increasing body of studies and the findings are indeed magical. It opens another realm of mythical knowledge and psychological insights. Psilocybin encourages the growth of neurological connections. It enables new insights, increases the ability to recognise correlations between events or subjects, and it strengthens cognitive and social skills. This is the basis of our mission; A sacred ceremony. A rebirth to realign your senses and be a conduit for ideas and visions.

Scientific American on Psilocybin

Personal meaning and transcendence, gratitude, compassion, altruism, sensitivity to others and forgiveness, sustained changes of social value, diminished depression and anxiety, “oneness” with the universe…

“More than two-thirds of the participants rated their psychedelic journey one of the most important experiences of their lives.” 

“It is simply unprecedented in psychiatry that a single dose of a medicine produces these kinds of dramatic and enduring results.”

“There is something about the core of this experience that opens people up to the great mystery of what it is that we don’t know. The psilocybin experience enables a sense of deeper meaning, and an understanding that in the largest frame everything is fine and that there is nothing to be fearful of. There is a buoyancy that comes of that which is quite remarkable.”

“The core mystical experience is one of the interconnectedness of all people and things, the awareness that we are all in this together.”

“It’s one thing to have a dramatic experience you say is impressive. It’s another thing to say you consider it as meaningful 14 months later. There’s something about the saliency of these experiences that’s stunning.”

It’s very common for people who have profound mystical-type experiences to report very positive changes in attitudes about themselves, their lives, and their relationships with others. People often report shifts in a core sense of self….

A profound sense of the interconnectedness of all things packaged in a benevolent framework of a sense of sacredness, deep reverence, openhearted love and a noetic quality of truth. So it’s quite plausible that the primary mystical experience not only underlies changes in attitude toward death specifically, but also changes attitudes about self, life, and other people in a way that’s dramatically uplifting (Roland Griffiths, Ph.D.).
