YOUR PSILOCYBIN JOURNEY

EXPERTLY-GUIDED MIND AND BODY EXPERIENCE

WHAT MAKES THE 

Internal Resilience and Grounding Skills

Our specialist team will teach you how to prepare your body and mind for the journey.
We walk you through what to expect, help you develop a heart-felt intention, and equip you with mind, breath, and body-based resources so you feel calm and ready for the experience. We teach you how to find and strengthen your internal resources so you can rely on them during your journey.

We believe that harnessing the power of psychedelics within a therapeutic context creates a catalyst for self-discovery and transformation. By integrating the wisdom of psychedelics and our therapeutic knowledge, we aim to guide individuals towards self-empowerment, healing, and a more profound connection with themselves and each other.

Many psychedelic programmes offer a team introduction and then provide support videos or apps. Pathfinders offers live online sessions, including 10 months of face-to-face support from our team. We prepare you mentally and physically for the journey, guide you during the journey, and support you to turn your insights into lasting, meaningful changes. Small groups and live sessions enable our team to work with your individual needs as they arise, throughout the process.

What psychedelic substance does Pathfinders use and how safe is it?

A psilocybin journey is a structured and therapeutic experience where individuals use psilocybin in a safe and controlled setting under the guidance of facilitators. A journey differs from recreational use because it is intentionally designed for personal growth, healing, and self-discovery.

What psychedelic substance does Pathfinders use and how safe is it?

A psilocybin journey provides calm, focused space for deep self-exploration. Guidance by trained professionals allows you to relax and focus on your own experience. The journey lasts about 5-6 hours, during which time you may experience profound introspection or a heightened connection with your inner world. The journey can offer insights about life challenges, breaking out of old thinking and behaviour patterns and creating pathways to healing.  

Psychedelic mushrooms promote the brain's neuroplasticity, or ability to forge new ways of thinking. With the right integrational support, your new insights can become new ways of being.

What psychedelic substance does Pathfinders use and how safe is it?

We believe that the successo of a psychedelic journey is dependent on the quality of preparation and integration, as well as the psychedelic experience. We created a comprehensive programme that supports you each step of the way, ensuring that you get the most out of your journey.

Our team of experts lead live prep sessions, during which we build a trusted community with a small group of participants.

Preparation sessions are designed to discover where each participant might struggle during the journey. We address any fears or resistance, strengthen participants’ internal resources, and equip them with mind, breath, and body-based grounding skills that they can rely on during the journey.

Journeys will be guided by a team of six (one facilitator per every two participants) who knows each participant and their individual needs.

We believe that integration is the most important phase of the psychedelic journey. Without intentional steps to integrate journey insights, our insights may be lost when we return to daily life. Integration involves taking our new insights and developing next steps, life goals, and meaningful change.
