The deeper states of meditation and the psychedelic journeys are often compared. There are many similarities, but there are also differences. When used wisely, both can do much good for the mind and body.

Psychedelics as a meditation tool

While meditation releases the body's own psychedelics (probably DMT) in the brain, psychedelics ensure that you reach the meditative state at a deeper level than an average person can reach with meditation. You could therefore label psychedelics as an exogenously administered meditation state.

Combining meditation with psychedelics

Psychedelics and meditation go well together. Some meditate on microdoses of psilocybin or LSD and others meditate on a regular basis and do high doses of psychedelics to reach a new level. Here at trip therapy we always recommend making healthy choices around psychedelic therapy or ceremonies. Meditation fits very well in a healthy lifestyle, especially if you eat healthy, exercise enough and sleep well. Psychedelic sessions can help you ultimately make the healthiest choices.
