I'm getting a lot of questions in regard to how microdosing psilocybin fits into our Emotional Expansion masterclass course that starts next week. And I'm answering them in this short video with an invitation to join me this Saturday.
I started smoking marijuana early in college. A boyfriend turned me on to it and I never looked back. To this very day I medicate. However, far differently than back in those college days. Today I enjoy a toke or two before I go into meditation. I meditate straight too. I like to mix it up.
"You don't know what you're talking about!" angrily wrote one of the people, a therapist, who was getting my emails. "I'm unsubscribing because this is irresponsible behavior," they said in a fit of indignation over me talking about how cannabis appears to be helpful in tapering people off of alcohol.
There's a stampede of people experimenting with microdosing psilocybin (magic mushrooms) looking for ways to feel better. In fact, they are diving in and going for it – and not waiting for clinical studies or laws and public policy to be established.

Every day I slip a "vest" harness on my little dog, Sawyer. He looks forward to it because it means he's going for his walk – and like most dogs, he loves his walks! But early on, as an abused rescue who was kept in a cage, Sawyer didn't have the slightest idea of what I was doing.
