Small Doses of Awareness
A twelve-week companion guide for exploring and deepening the therapeutic possibilities and healing potential of microdosing psychedelics.
For anyone ready to embark on their own microdosing journey, Small Doses of Awareness is a guided journal for deepening your reflections and integrating the knowledge gained through your microdosing experiences. Each of the twelve weeks has a different focus—from journeying inward, to questioning and deconstructing self-limiting beliefs, to aligning with your values and exploring your identity, to harnessing the power of mindfulness and creativity, and more.
With short personal essays from the authors introducing each week’s focus, thoughtful writing and reflection prompts, and a template for recording insights and observations, this alternative therapy journal will help you make the most of the small doses of awareness that psychedelic microdosing provides on the road to self-healing. EXPERIENCED AUTHORS: Amy Wong Hope, MSW, LCSW, and award-winning artist and writer Shin Yu Pai are uniquely qualified to write about microdosing. Amy is a clinical social worker and psychedelic integration therapist in private practice who specializes in trauma and resilience, as well as the Certificate Program Director of Psychedelic Studies at Southwestern College in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Shin Yu has devoted more than twenty years to exploring the intersections of creativity and healing as an exhibiting artist and published author. Both have found the exploration of psychedelics essential on their healing journeys.
UNDERREPRESENTED PERSPECTIVES AND UNIQUE RESOURCES: As Asian-American women, the authors share powerful personal reflections and reader prompts that deal with exploring issues of identity through psychedelics. Additional resource material included in the book also puts a special focus on underrepresented sources and providers.
ON-TREND SUBJECT: There has been no shortage of interest in microdosing, with recent coverage about the trend in outlets such as NPR, VICE, The New York Times, and Outside. Like cannabis before it, the psychedelic psilocybin is on its way to legalization, with a growing number of everyday people exploring the therapeutic potential of these substances, which include LSD, MDMA, ayahuasca, and others, showing a trend that's on the rise.
ESSENTIAL MICRODOSING GUIDEBOOK: While several publications exist that contextualize the usage, biochemistry, legislation, and neuroscience of psychedelic usage and microdosing, no self-guided journal for exploring one’s personal intentions and experiences has been published by a major trade or independent publisher. This is the resource the authors wish they’d had when beginning their own microdosing journeys. Perfect for:
- Anyone undergoing or curious about psychedelic therapy
- Meditation and mindfulness practitioners
- Anyone interested in alternative wellness practices
- Readers of The Microdosing Guidebook, How to Change Your Mind, A Really Good Day, Ritual Journal, Anxiety Is My Sidekick, and Choose Hope, Take Action
