Psilocybin Ceremony

My healing process is on track and, while I still have day-to-day ups and downs, I am definitely heading in the right direction. Recently I’ve theorized, and my therapist has confirmed, that the bulk of my psychic discomfort originates from the cPTSD I developed a long time ago. I came to greater acceptance of that […]

Microdose

I haven’t been writing much lately as I’ve been working on myself (a lot) and it hasn’t really been on my mind. That said, I think I’d like to get back to jotting down my thoughts again. For instance, I microdosed psilocybin (mushrooms) for the first time two days ago. I took a quarter gram […]
