Psiloflora ceremony in the Netherlands made a blog about Consciousness and psychedelics.
Consciousness and LSD, DMT or psilocybin
Consciousness is something not easy to understand what it really is. Still, it is a beautiful philosophical and spiritual subject during a truffle ceremony, LSD session or other psychedelic session. During the psychedelic state the rational brain, the ego or consciousness goes on a lower level so that the own interpretation of what a person is (ego) goes away and only the experience remains. The subconscious processes that control the consciousness therefore come more to light.
Consciousness is a mystery
There are various theories about consciousness and how perhaps our consciousness gives us the convenient illusion of being able to survive by thinking that we are something different from the rest of the universe.
The emergence of consciousness
The following video explains how consciousness could have slowly arisen due to evolution.
Consciousness and the ego as an illusion?
The next video is about Samadhi. Samadhi comes from Buddhism and is a deep state of meditation, which is similar to the psychedelic state, in which the ego dissolves and there is no longer any difference between inside and outside. This may remove the illusion that everything is something individual and self-contained.
Psychedelics give a look behind the scenes
In addition to the therapeutic possibilities of psychedelics, psychedelics can give you insights into what consciousness means and what the subconscious is. The following video is a nice summary of what psychedelics and hallucinations can do.

Spiritual, therapeutic or exploratory trip?
Are you curious who you are without your ego? We can help by accompanying a psychedelic session with the theme: “who am I”? This theme has mainly a spiritual character but it can very well work therapeutically with negative self-images and fear of death. What would be the reason for you to do a psychedelic session and would you like to do it individually, with a self-assembled group or an open group of strangers?
