Psymposia is proud to collaborate with the 920 Coalition, organizing events around 9/20 focused on the role that psychedelic psilocybin mushrooms play in our society.
Thank you to everyone who joined our 2016 tour stops through San Francisco, Brooklyn, and Montreal!
And now, we continue our collaboration to bring you mushroom and psilocybin themed content year-round!
This time my dose was 45 mg of pure psilocybin. I took it and waited for the show to begin. There was fear and a sincere hope that this experience would not be as hellish.
A 3-part series on one participant's experience in the Pharmacokinetics of Psilocybin in Normal Adult Volunteers study at the University of Wisconsin.
I had been defined by the diagnoses and labels put on me, but in that moment, I was peeling back every layer of self-hatred, criticism, and trauma. I don’t think I had ever felt self-love before that night.
One night after reading Huxley’s account of his adventures with mescaline, I was amazed by and curious about the expansive possibilities. The very next day I noticed a small display ad in a Washington, D.C. lifestyle publication. A research program was seeking volunteers with a spiritual background to ingest a hallucinogen.
I had eaten a quarter of my chocolate. "You're not eating that now, are you?" There had been a little communication cross, I had not realized that this was a mushroom chocolate given to me as I was sitting there on his lap... ho ho ho.
The jester then reached inside me and pulled this shivering, small, fearful being out of my abdomen.
"On Tuesday, you will be the only person in the U.S. who will be taking psilocybin legally.”
I ate them like candy. Tried to hide the face when you eat mushrooms. “Ya I love it, good taste. Fresh!” I had no idea what I’m doing.
An interview with comedian Adam Strauss. "With psychedelics, for the first time, I saw that I wasn't in control, and therefore, I had nothing to lose by letting go. And that changed everything."
Psychedelic mushrooms pattern human lives in other ways than simply our experiences of consuming them.
