Psilocybin with psychological support for treatment-resistant depression: an open-label feasibility study change

This study provides preliminary support for the safety and efficacy of psilocybin for treatment-resistant depression and motivates further trials, with more rigorous designs, to better examine the therapeutic potential of this approach.

Psilocybin produces substantial and sustained decreases in depression and anxiety in patients with life-threatening cancer

When administered under psychologically supportive, double-blind conditions, a single dose of psilocybin produced substantial and enduring decreases in depressed mood and anxiety along with increases in quality of life and decreases in death anxiety in patients with a life-threatening cancer diagnosis. Ratings by patients themselves, clinicians, and community observers suggested these effects endured at least 6 months. The overall rate of clinical response at 6 months on clinician-rated depression and anxiety was 78% and 83%, respectively. Source: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/0269881116675513

Increased nature relatedness and decreased authoritarian political views after psilocybin for treatment-resistant depression

This pilot study suggests that psilocybin with psychological support might produce lasting changes in attitudes and beliefs. Although it would be premature to infer causality from this small study, the possibility of drug-induced changes in belief systems seems sufficiently intriguing and timely to deserve further investigation.

Mystical-type experiences occasioned by psilocybin mediate the attribution of personal meaning and spiritual significance 14 months later

Psilocybin has been used for centuries for religious purposes; however, little is known scientifically about its long-term effects.  When administered under supportive conditions, psilocybin occasioned experiences similar to spontaneously occurring mystical experiences that, at 14-month follow-up, were considered by volunteers to be among the most personally meaningful and spiritually significant of their lives.

Acute, subacute and long-term subjective effects of psilocybin in healthy humans: a pooled analysis of experimental studies


Although psilocybin dose-dependently induced profound changes in mood, perception, thought and self-experience, most subjects described the experience as pleasurable, enriching and non-threatening. Acute adverse drug reactions, characterized by strong dysphoria and/or anxiety/panic, occurred only in the two highest dose conditions in a relatively small proportion of subjects. All acute adverse drug reactions were successfully managed by providing interpersonal support and did not need psychopharmacological intervention.

Potential Therapeutic Effects of Psilocybin

 These two studies, in particular, provide strong evidence showing substantial decreases in depressive and anxious symptoms that appear to persist for at least 6 months after a single active treatment. Such results are unprecedented in psychiatry.The recent research with psilocybin, especially evidence of long persisting therapeutic effects that may stem from a single medication administration, suggests that therapy with classic psychedelics may constitute a major new area of medicine that might eventually alleviate suffering across multiple potential disorders.

Luc

Luc is co-founder & lead facilitator at Psychedelic insights. Luc is very grateful for a wonderful life. 
His life changed dramatically after he had experienced deep personal transformation and divine revelations through plant medicines ("magic" psilocybin truffles and Ayahuasca). He also ran a private health service (de Oplaadfabriek) based upon more meditation, less medication. Luc has given more than 40 workshops in youth prisons inspiring young felons to turn their lives around and live fully and happily and gave workshops on happiness and emotional well-being. 
Luc was also the founder of Safe Spaces Amsterdam. A trip-guide initiative where he facilitated over a hundred psychedelic experiences for an international clientele. He learned to guide with an open mind and open heart. Psychedelic insights became a logical next step with a great team to match to optimise the entire experience (the set and setting) for clients.  
He’s a proud dad and enjoys a simple life. A father and self confessed fool, he (also) considers himself lucky, grateful and happy.

Ellen

Ellen is educated as a health scientist and is deeply inspired to contribute to people’s health as well as to creating healthy environments. She previously worked as a nutrition & health researcher for the Louis Bolk Institute, specializing in ‘Integrative Medicine’ which describes the integration of regular healthcare with complementary and traditional medicine techniques (such as plant medicine, lifestyle, nutrition, yoga, meditation and visualization). She graduated in her masters on the concepts of ‘integrative medicine’, ‘holistic health’ and personal development, and in her bachelors on the integration of psilocybin into the regular healthcare system. While intellectually trained, she has strong intuitive and empathic abilities and it is her passion to integrate both worlds. In order to do so, she has years of experience with trainings in (self)-healing, psychology, meditation, energy-work, tantra and (psychedelic) ceremonies. This unique combination of both professional & practical experience and a warm, highly-sensitive personality, makes her a great facilitator for the Psychedelic Insights team.

Hector

Hector is a water engineer turned psychedelic entrepreneur and co-founder of Psychedelic insights. Hector travelled the world to make a positive impact in the areas of water technologies, circular economy and human potential. 
Originally from Mexico now based in Amsterdam. The paradox is that the western world has never been more abundant, peacefully and connected. However though, never more isolated and depressed. 
Hector realised that the "thirst" is somewhere else. That people won't understand the value of water before finding true value in themselves. A lifelong interest in positive psychology, consciousness, neurology and meditation converged in the area of Psychedelics.
Now harnessing the power of Psychedelics to accelerate the tipping point of human consciousness, to create a more mindful and connected world.

A Profound Trip

Psilocybin has been an exceptional teacher. It has opened the doors or perception further than I've ever experienced before. Nothing compares, all my studies of philosophy and religion, my deepest introspective meditations or hours in isolation tank sessions don't even come close.

I feel renewed with a fresh sense of optimism and a genuine love of life. It has really helped my depression and anxiety issues immensely. Mission accomplished!  We can't control the world, but we can control how we feel about it.

Again, thank you and Ellen for everything. I can't wait to book another session with you guys in the future and really diving into the depths of consciousness.
