“A problem can not be solved by the same consciousness in which it arose.” – Albert Einstein

Altered states are one of the most important things you can be spending your time focused on.

In our everyday normal waking consciousness, there’s not a lot of change that can happen. Yes, we can go about our normal tasks, but oftentimes when we want some kind of transformation in our lives, it’s going to take an altered state to get there.

Sex, Drugs, and Altered States

What is an Altered State?

An altered state is any consciousness level or mental awareness that’s different than your waking one. It’s different than what you normally use through your everyday life.

How Can You Use Altered States?

It’s how we use the state that determines what kind of experience we have and whether we end up controlling it, or it ends up controlling us. It’s important to know what state you need to be in at any given moment.

Ways to Tap into An Altered State

We go in and out of altered states all day long. When you are sleeping, eating food, having intense emotions, meditating, breathwork, having sex, doing drugs; it’s an altered state. There’s so much power in these different realms of thinking.

We’re living in an exciting time.

We’re in the midst of a psychedelic renaissance.

Coming out of the shadows, new research now suggests the psychoactive compound psilocybin found in naturally occurring fungi has massive implications when it comes to addiction (including an 80% success rate for smoking cessation), mood and anxiety disorders, personal growth, and cluster headaches.

Not to mention, Silicon Valley is turning microdosing mainstream as a clear way to innovation and productivity.

It seems like science is finally figuring out what shamans across the world already knew thousands of years ago.

For us personally, mushrooms were the beginning of our journey. That one night set us down a new path full of possibility, gave us the insight to work through and overcome our own trauma, and inspired us to spend our lives helping others.

With laws now starting to change and the world waking up, we cannot wait to have this conversation with you in the Psychedelics Masterclass 🎉
