DO I NEed a tripsITTER?
No matter what dosing you have in mind, you may prefer to have someone with you on your psychedelic journey. We call this a trip sitter, or a facilitator. A trip sitter is a person that serves as a steady and supportive presence while you experience your journey. Someone who ensures your safety and helps out with whatever may be needed.
During your journey, the sitter stays sober. There are a few things to keep in mind in order to choose a sitter that suits you. In general, it should be a person who’s able to hold space for you with a calm and balanced energy. Someone whom you trust and feel safe and comfortable with.
For a low or mid dose, you can choose a friend or a family member. Do make sure that this person is familiar with psychedelics, has a good understanding of how the mind and body work and has some experience in facilitating.
For high doses, we recommend partaking in our signature Spinoza retreat program, which includes a high-dose psychedelic truffle ceremony facilitated by experienced guides and experts. This psychedelic retreat in nature offers a natural way to rewire the mind and reconnect with the body. You will be guided with utmost care and personal attention. Beforehand there is a Preparation workshop and afterwards you will receive practical tools to help you in your Integration process.
