Mitigating the chances of a bad trip is a crucial factor in preparing for the unpredictable and often challenging nature of psychedelic experiences. In this episode, Jimmy and Nick will review some actionable steps that can be taken to prevent discomfort, dissolve self-judgment, and redirect the tone of your journey.
First, they’ll highlight some of the common themes of a bad trip. They’ll explain what ‘surrendering’ really means and how it applies to not only psychedelic experiences but to life as a whole. They’ll also offer some examples of what a psychedelic facilitator might do to ease your mind during the intense parts of the psychedelic experience.
Then our hosts will explain why having a psychedelic facilitator or trip sitter present can help you feel a more solid sense of being grounded and safe in your body and in your environment. Nick and Jimmy will clarify just how much personal autonomy you have over the course of your journey and why emotional transparency with your facilitator can be of immense benefit.
