The Joy of Psychedelic Healing
Many people in the psychedelic community will be quick to mention scientific research and peer-reviewed studies supporting the claims that psychedelics have immense healing power, but if you were to ask those people about their first psychedelic experience, it was likely a somewhat wild and cathartic journey with a few friends, in all but a controlled environment.
In recent years, the efforts for the medicalization and legalization of psychedelics have rightly steered the conversation away from free-wheeling fun, and instead emphasized safety, ethics, and caution, but it is important that we do not completely forego the roots of the psychedelic experience, which is joy, communal bonding, ecstasy, and transformation.
Julian Vayne is an accomplished writer and occultist, and author of the book Getting Higher: The Manual of Psychedelic Ceremony, a fantastic guide for anyone wanting to use psychedelics in a mindful, playful, and exploratory way. We spoke with Julian recently about the subject of seriousness and playfulness in psychedelic work, and his insights challenge us to remember that the true power of psychedelic healing comes from joy and catharsis. weed for sale near me
