What can I do to prepare and make the most of my psychedelic experience?

To achieve the most from a psychedelic experience, preparation and integration carried out in collaboration with healthcare professionals are critically important. You should ensure that you are fully informed about a substance — including what to expect from it and the ways to lessen potential risks — before consenting to a psychedelic experience. Participants should be clear about their intentions and what they hope to get out of the experience. These are important steps to ready the mind for the session. Following the psychedelic session, the participant should discuss their experience with a therapist or coach to discuss insights that can be integrated into their everyday lives.
