Learn how to effectively use psychedelics for insight, healing and growth
Psychedelics can be a powerful tool to help you heal, gain personal insights, and increase connection with yourself, others and the world.
Whether you’ve just recently started working with psychedelics or you’ve been journeying for a while, you know that psychedelics are an incredible key to healing, insight, and personal growth.
But there are a lot of things to consider
There are a lot of potential benefits, yes,
but there are also a lot of considerations.
You know that psychedelics are incredibly powerful, and that if you're able to find effective and reliable methods of utilising them — you'll be equipped with one of the most useful tools for personal development.
You want to go deeper on your journeys, reap positive and lasting effects, and explore different ways of preparing, navigating, and integrating psychedelic experiences.
You'd like to cultivate a more focused approach,
explore and implement complimentary practices, and connect with others
You want to become a skilled psychonaut!
But, you have questions...
You know that psychedelics can unlock profound changes to your mind, and in turn, your experience of life. And you'd like to find answers to these questions and develop more effective ways of working with psychedelics.
You have some understandable concerns and doubts...
Are they safe?
There are certainly dangers and risks to working with psychedelics. But, most of them can be minimized or avoided entirely with careful and proper preparation.
In terms of toxicity and addictive potential, psychedelics are some of the safest substances on the planet.
Scientific research shows that psychedelics can actually improve our mental health.
Maybe psychedelics just don't work for me
Scientific research shows us that psychedelics work incredibly well for most people.
In one study where healthy volunteers were given a single large dose of a psychedelic: 67% rated the experience to be either the single most meaningful experience of his or her life or among the top five most meaningful experiences.
Participants attributed sustained positive changes in attitudes and behavior to the experience, and these were consistent with changes rated by friends and family.
Psychedelics are the most reliable means we have of expanding awareness and inducing non-ordinary states of consciousness.
The key is proper preparation, a structured approach, and the right context.
I'm not sure if there is more for me to learn
If you're serious about using psychedelics to support your growth, you could probably spend the rest of your life deepening your practice.
The most profound experiences can take years, or even decades to fully integrate.
Generally speaking, integration is life!
To keep learning and growing, it helps to approach with a true explorer's mindset, to be open to trying different approaches, and connecting with a community of others on the same path.
What would it be like to feel empowered and confident in your use of psychedelics?
You would be able to create deep and meaningful experiences and translate them into positive changes, reaping positive and lasting benefits
You would be able to continue working with them effectively, comfortable and confident in your practice, and able to harness their gifts reliably.
You would be connected to a global community of psychedelic explorers, where you can find support, encouragement, advice or inspiration.
I'd like to help you get there.
Let me introduce myself...
Hello, I'm John Robertson
I'm a psychedelic facilitator and educator with experience in the fields of mindfulness, meditation, and personal growth.
I'm the creator at Maps of the Mind, and founder of New Moon Retreats, one of the first legal psychedelic retreats in the world.
Through my work, I help people use psychedelics for exploration, insight, healing, and growth.
My approach is influenced by methods found in psychedelic therapy, scientific research, mindfulness, and my own experience as a psychedelic explorer and facilitator.
I was drawn to this work because on a personal level, I've experienced my most healing experiences and biggest growth spurts during and in the integration of psychedelic journeys.
I had a life-changing initiation into the psychedelic world in 2011, and was drawn to investigate these mysterious experiences more deeply.
I continued to personally explore them in all kinds of contexts around the world. Everything from shamanic approaches to solo nature trips to modern group retreats.
Over the years I tried many methods and approaches. Sometimes I'd have wonderful and insightful experiences, other times I'd emerge from my journeys feeling disappointed.
Gradually, I got more studious and systematic about my approach.
In 2017, I put everything together and crafted a simple psychedelic ceremony for myself.
I had my most profound journey to date.
It opened my heart, catapulted my personal growth, and reignited my appreciation of the immense potential of psychedelics.
This experience drew me to help and support others on their psychedelic journeys, and since then I've worked with over a hundred people, helping them to use psychedelics for healing, growth, and transformation.
I continue to facilitate, write and teach on the topic, and seeing and hearing about the positive changes in people's lives is what continues to inspire my work.
This lead me to create The Conscious Psychedelic Explorer & lay out what I call The Path of the Psychonaut.
This is a step-by-step course with practical resources to help you find an effective and personalized way of working with psychedelics.
And I will support you as you move through it.
