Join legendary psychedelics researcher and the father of the modern microdosing movement, James Fadiman, PhD, and microdosing educator and coach Adam Bramlage in this groundbreaking workshop to learn all about the most current and best practices in the world of microdosing.

When Fadiman’s book, The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide: Safe, Therapeutic, and Sacred Journeys, was published in 2011, it sparked a movement across the country and around the world. Microdosing means using sub-hallucinogenic amounts of psychedelics to improve mental health, creativity, and athletic performance and alleviate depression, migraines, chronic pain, addictions, and more. This weekend of discussions, participant reports, coaching methods, and research results will explore the history, science, and best practices for safe and effective microdosing.

The workshop will feature:

  • Faculty-led presentations and discussions on microdosing.
  • Community-driven discussions on psychedelics and microdosing.
  • A history of microdosing through time, from ancestral and indigenous use to contemporary.
  • Best practices for safe and effective microdosing.
  • Risks, rewards, and contraindications when microdosing.
  • The latest science, research, and citizen-science reports on microdosing.
  • The value and benefits of coaching and integration.
  • Maximizing microdose benefits through stacking and herbal blending.

Important Note: The Saturday segments of this workshop will be live-streamed to a digital audience. The cameras will be positioned to preserve anonymity. Group discussions will happen separately within the live community and the streaming community.

Recommended Reading: Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide, by James Fadiman; Science of Microdosing Psychedelics, by Torsten Passe; and A Really Good Day, by Ayelet Waldman.
