Psychedelics as tools for relationship development 

Psykedelisk sopp i par- og familieterapi

Much of the most important i  our significant relationships takes place on such an unconscious and wordless level that it can be difficult to grasp in our usual everyday conscious state. Therefore, psychedelics such as psilocybin can be a useful tool to change stuck or destructive patterns both in couples and other significant relationships, such as relationships between siblings or between adult children and parents.

In practice, we recommend that those involved - e.g. the parties in a love relationship - have at least one session separately, then we arrange a joint session. In this shared psychedelic journey, you can experience a closeness and love that you have never experienced before, and things that were previously felt completely impossible to talk about can be released spontaneously and naturally. The result can at best be renewed strength and direction in a damaged relationship, so that love can flourish again.

If it is obvious that the relationship is not viable, one can still go their separate ways with so much mutual love and goodwill that life can continue without suppressed grief, anger and bitterness - as many unfortunately struggle with after a breakup.

Sibling groups and extended families can in principle also have their relationships improved with the same method, but the experience is that individual sessions without a subsequent joint session often have sufficient effect so that the process can proceed naturally by itself. Even one individual session focusing on a given relationship can be enough to bring the relationship into a whole new track, even if the other person(s) involved know nothing about what you've been through.

Feel free to write us a few words about your current situation, and we'll take it from there.

Grief processing

Grief means that part of our dreams, hopes and expectations about the future fall to pieces. At some point after experiencing a loss, the brain begins a review to find what was never said or accomplished. It is normal and natural to have a review of the relationship and discover a number of things we wish were better or different. Something we would like to have said or done, or something we wish the other person had said or done. Whether you are aware of it or not, this review starts shortly after a loss. The fact is that the review continues from time to time until the communication is completed. Something that we can sometimes perceive as lingering or pondering. Communication is the key. Unresolved grief is almost always about an emotional message that we have not been able to communicate. Communication is the key. In order to release the grief over a loss, we therefore need to address all unspoken thoughts and feelings about the relationship. Letting go and moving on is common advice when losing. Wouldn't we do it if we only knew how? Live life to the fullest. Grief processing helps you process and release the pain and grief of your losses. You get help to identify what is incomplete so that you can complete this. This happens without you being criticized, analyzed or given advice. Experience shows that you then come to terms with yourself and what you have been involved in. The lingering and the pain disappear. Many people find that they get more energy, joy in life and become more present in life.
