What is Microdosing?

Microdosing is the practice of consuming small amounts of sacred plant medicines, or other psychedelics compounds, often at 1/10 of a standard dose. A microdose is meant to be sub-perceptive (extremely subtle). There should be no stereotypical "psychedelic effects" when under the influence of a microdose.


A standard microdosing practice lasts for 4-8 weeks. By working consistently with the medicine of your choice (2-4 days out of the week is standard) you are able to receive and notice more significant, long-lasting benefits.

The primary intention of microdosing is to improve the quality of your life. The diverse benefits may span across the entire physical, mental, emotional and spiritual territory of your life, potentially offering a full spectrum upgrade to your holistic sense of wellbeing.

Most commonly people report:

 

  • an increase in creativity, focus, and productivity

  • accessing flow states

  • less procrastination and easier to make healthier choices

  • finding relief from physical pain, depression, anxiety, PTSD

  • supporting in overcoming addictions and negative behaviours

  • increasing sense of well-being and balancing mood

  • feeling more present and embodied

  • greater authentic connection with people and nature

  • increased sense of wonder, unity, belonging, gratitude


With all of these potential benefits in mind, is important to understand that the plant medicine on its own will not change you. It's not a magic pill.  Your innate capacity for healing and transformation is simply supported by the plant medicine allies, amplifying the benefits you receive from your internal and external healing efforts.

Connecting with the spirit of the mushroom
opening Meditation

Whenever you are embarking on a journey that includes working with sacred plants such as the sacred mushroom, it's important to remember that there is a conscious, living Spirit that you are communing with. The plants are not inert substances that lifelessly interact with serotonin receptors and alter brain chemistry, as our reductive approach to science may claim.

Our western culture often fails to address the spiritual component of microdosing. There is a benevolent intelligence that lives in and works through these plants. Each offers unique gifts, insights, and evolutionary opportunity to the human species on our journey of spiritual evolution.

In my experience the mushrooms are incredibly generous (and playful) allies, who truly want the best for us. They want us to live in joy, in harmony with ourselves and all of creation. They are powerful teachers and deserve deep respect.

 

When approaching these plants for healing, do so with reverence and intention, offer them the same kind of respect that you would for any respected teacher or mentor.
 

Here is a simple ritual you can do to get aquatinted to the Spirit of the plant and begin to build a relationship with it. I find that when you connect to the plants in this way, your receive greater benefits.

 

 

 

 

 

1. Create a sacred altar space in your home where you can sit comfortably in meditation without being disturbed.

2. You can place a candle and any other special or sacred objects on the altar to make this space feel beautiful and peaceful: crystals, incense, pictures of loved ones, flowers... get creative! Place your medicine on the altar. It is recommended that your medicine remains on the altar throughout your microdosing practice.

3. Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths, in through the nose and out the mouth, to ground in and centre yourself. Imagine growing roots to connect to the centre of Earth. Send her your love and gratitude. Breath with her for 2-3 minutes. 

4. Make an offering to the medicine, either physical like a small glass of water, an offering of your own hair, tobacco, or anything that your feel intuitively called to offer. (It can be a physical object or something as simple as your smile or love).

 

4. Bring your awareness into your heart and speak to the Spirit of the medicine, out loud or in your heart, "Spirit of the mushroom, thank you for being with me today. I come to you asking to work with you, to learn from you, and I'd like to do it in a good way. I open my heart to you and invite you in."

6. Now simply sit in meditation for a few minutes, opening to receive any sensations or subtle communications from the plants. It may show up in felt sense, images, feelings, a voice in your head, smells, etc. If this is a new practice for you, have patience. Plants communicate in subtle ways that may take some time to become more deeply aware of.

7. After a few minutes of receiving, express your gratitude and share your intention for your microdosing practice. Imagine like you are speaking to a good friend, explain what's going on in your life, where are you struggling, what do you need help with, what are you calling in, what are you wanting to create more in your life?
 

8. When you feel complete, thank the Spirit once more. Take three breaths, offer the first to the Spirit of the medicine, the second to the Earth, and the last one for yourself. 


 

During your microdose practice, on your dose days, I recommend coming to your altar in the morning and having a quick chat with the mushrooms to share your intention for the day, ask for their guidance, and give them your gratitude. Throughout your practice give them offerings that you place on the altar.

 


Blessings to you on your journey.

May you walk in beauty
And live in harmony
with all of Creation.
