It’s important to learn about ego for many reasons, especially when experiencing psychedelic states of consciousness.
From his empowering essay titled Self-Reliance.
One of my favorite writings of Emerson.
See how it relates to the empowering psilocybin experience in this episode!
The psilocybin experience in itself can be similar to a hero’s journey & sometimes that’s exactly what it is.
“Wear Sunscreen” is an essay turned into a commencement speech & is one of my favorites – My psilocybin experiences have helped me understand these words all the more.
Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, was a leader of The Merry Pranksters along with his best friend Ken Babbs.
Before Kesey was an author, he was a student at Stanford University – & while he was there, in 1960 he voluntarily participated in a military experiment testing the effects of mind altering drugs. He was given LSD & it changed his life forever, in incredible ways.
I am a part-time perfectionist.
There are some things that are worth being perfected, and some that don’t need as much attention. I often find myself writing twenty to forty or sometimes even a hundred lines of the same sentence — before feeling and knowing that it is complete.
It’s a blessing and a curse. (OCD much? haha)
This perfectionist attention was put into the making of The Psychedelic Trip Journal. & I’m all ears to improvements, so please send it all my way — the bad & good.
Overall, The Psychedelic Trip Journal is a great integration journal for the psilocybin & psychedelic experience.

The title says it all.
Plus I left in a “blooper” at the beginning of the episode a little after the 1 minute intro (same with episode 14).

To my psilocybin experiences?
I share two important messages from this book, & quotes, all related to epiphanies I experienced on psilocybin.
How is the human ego similar to an onion?
Find out throughout this episode 🙂
Plus some meditation toward the end! (and aliens?!?!)
