An open letter to people starting psychedelic therapy after legalization
by Geoff Gilpin
Hello and welcome. You made a difficult decision to embark on psychedelic therapy and I admire your courage. Most of the people who go through psychedelic therapy say that it’s one of the most important experiences in their lives. I’ve done it myself and I think you’ll be as happy as I was to discover the positive changes in your life.
You’re about to leave on an amazing journey. It’s so exciting to imagine the discoveries you’ll make. The best advice I can give you is to expect the unexpected. Every psychedelic trip has its own surprises, insights, and challenges. Be open to the experiences, let everything happen, and you’ll come through just fine.
It’s possible that you may have some difficulties on your way. Your guides will be there with you the whole time to make sure that you’re safe. Many people find that the difficult challenges are valuable because they help us become strong and flexible and resilient.
If you’re nervous about facing the unknown, you’re definitely not the first. Even veterans can feel the same way. For myself, I discovered that the things I feared most aren’t anywhere near as big as I thought they were. As a result, I feel more at home in the world and less afraid. If I did it, you can do it too.
I wish you a peaceful and loving journey. I’m looking forward to seeing you on the other side and hearing about your adventures. Thank you so much for joining us.
