Carroccio, thought to be the first person to receive psilocybin under Oregon’s new system, discusses his psilocybin experience.
That last line of his made me tear up. Why me? Why not. Wonderful article 🙏🏼
That was exactly what I think we all hope for from the pioneers of legalized therapy. I am curious, was there a woman who also facilitated the session with Josh? My thinking is that both energies are ideal for such healing sessions. Regardless, I am happy the healing has begun.
Closely mirrors my experiences over the last 4 years. My guide combines it with MDMA for a long and deep experience that lasts for weeks.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience!
Psilocybin has been an absolute miracle in my life as well! I suffered for 15 years with bipolar depression. For 10 of those years it was suicidal depression. Suicidal thoughts every single day.
Psilocybin took away the suicidal thoughts, and most of the depression symptoms. It gave me my life back! It gave me energy! And allowed me to spend time with my children again.
I know the owner of bendable therapy. He's an amazing man!
Again, thank you so much for sharing your experience! I wish you continued healing and continued wholeness. 💗✨🙏🏻
That's good to know and thank you for telling us all. It's slowly coming out that there are thousands (tens of thousands? more?) of us who have been fortunate to have access to MDMA and or psilocybin through a wise and experienced guide and (anecdotally) I have heard of or from may people who have had their entire life/being changed/repaired/healed. I am 78 so for those reading, it's never too late! Or, as my guide said, "What are you waiting for?" I long for the day when it's legal everywhere, and affordable. I do worry about it being an elite experience when those who need it the most can probably afford it the least. Imagine if we could bring MDMA therapy to the ghettos and begin the class/race healing we so badly need.
This is one of the best posts ever on this Substack. I'd love to get more interviews with people describing their therapeutic experiences with psychedelics!
Wonderful story, but his dosage reporting is confusing me. 30 milligrams of dried mushroom is barely a microdose. Is he referring to synthesized psylocin? And at an exorbitant cost of $1000? Unfortunately at these prices this therapy will be out of reach for the vast majority of people.
thanks for sharing, Jane 🙏🏼
"Thirty years of cognitive therapy didn’t do what six hours of psilocybin did."
I am so glad to have read this ! For years I have searched for a solution to my C-PTSD from multiple attacks (held hostage at knifepoint, shot at, rape, and other traumas) that no psychiatrist has been able to heal or even help me cope with. Having absolutely no support from my husband and no family I had given up on finding any peace of mind in my last years of life - I'm almost 70 - and regaining all that unbound joy I used to have. Moving to AZ has made things even more difficult because I have autoimmune problems, but my hubs refuses to
move north or to the coast.
AZ is a prohibitive state, not a reasonable and more humane one as Oregon is; I've wanted to live there for a long time for those reasons and of course for the beauty of the coast and so much more!
Thank you for explaining and showing me that I DO possibly have a better future to find !
Grateful for Mr. Carroccio's positive experience and wishing him the best with integration.
I'm confused, though, by the amounts mentioned here. 30 mg? I'm unfamiliar with psilocybin as compared to mushrooms themselves, which usually require doses of 3 to 5 or more grams. Is this a concentrate?
Thanks to the person who explains, in advance.
Great interview - good for Oregon!
I am extremely pleased that Mr. Carroccio feels he was helped. My heart sings with joy!
It is VERY important to remember, however, that which has great power to heal ALWAYS also has great power to harm. I have seen people become severely mentally-ill for the rest of their lives after using psilocybin mushrooms. Be Real!
I am based in San Francisco CA and my guide is in Vallejo. If you contact me off-line I can send the details. Best wishes, John
