"Taryn really was with me the entire time and I felt that so relaxed and safe.” I really had a great experience, I had never done this before, and I am amazed at what we can do with our own breath. Taryn really was with me the entire time and I felt that so relaxed and safe.


"I felt connection and that Taryn cared for everyone in the group.” I cannot express how much this journey has helped me. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I loved your style of holding space for the journey. I felt connection and that you cared for everyone in the group.


"Taryn is truly gifted and I hope that more people get to experience her magic.” When I decided to do breathwork with Taryn, I was definitely excited to have the experience, but didn't fully know what to expect. When she says "journey", that's because that is exactly what it is....it's not just breathing and releasing tension. The journey that Taryn lovingly guided me through allowed me to access places in my body that needed to be held; and her gentle and nurturing energy and voice indeed held me in those spaces. I felt safe. Safe to surrender and to release stuck energy that could only have been released somatically. I personally had my experience virtually, and I can tell you for certain, that did not take away from my powerful experience. In short, Taryn is truly gifted and I hope that more people get to experience her magic. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Taryn!


"What a special experience to get to participate in the breathwork session.” Wow! What a special experience that was yesterday to get to participate in the breathwork session guided (so very skillfully & lovingly) by you! And just wow with your delivery/guidance of this exercise! Everything about it felt so harmonious & that you, are definitely meant for this kind of “work”, “therapy”, “service”. I had a truly amazing experience & I thank you.



Embracing Microdosing in Your Journey to Wellness: A Guide for Beginners

Embracing Microdosing in Your Journey to Wellness: A Guide for Beginners

May 16, 20246 min read

As people seek holistic well-being, microdosing—consuming sub-perceptual doses of psychedelics—has emerged. Integrating microdosing can lead to profound insights, creativity, and emotional resilience, despite initial reservations about its unconventional nature.

In this blog post, we'll discuss the gentle art of microdosing and offer tips for beginners looking to embark on this transformative journey with mindfulness and intention.

Understanding Microdosing: A Primer

Before diving into the practical aspects of microdosing, it's essential to have a basic understanding of what it entails and how it differs from traditional psychedelic experiences. Unlike full-dose trips characterized by profound alterations in perception and consciousness, microdosing involves consuming tiny, sub-perceptual doses of psychedelics. 

The goal is not to induce a psychedelic experience but rather to harness the subtle effects of these substances to enhance mood, cognition, and emotional well-being.

The Benefits of Microdosing: What to Expect

The potential benefits of microdosing are as diverse as they are profound, with enthusiasts touting its ability to enhance creativity, improve mood, and increase focus and productivity. 

1. Enhancing Mood and Emotional Well-being:

Microdosing has been reported to positively influence mood and emotional well-being, offering a potential avenue for alleviating symptoms of conditions like depression and anxiety. 

By modulating neurotransmitter systems in the brain, particularly serotonin, microdosing may promote a more positive outlook and reduce symptoms of mood disorders.

2. Improving Cognitive Function:

Microdosing has shown promise in enhancing cognitive function, including attention, memory, and problem-solving skills. By promoting neuroplasticity and enhancing connectivity within the brain's network hubs, microdosing may help people stay focused, engaged, and mentally sharp, leading to greater productivity and efficiency in daily tasks.

3. Fostering Creativity and Innovation:

Many people also report that microdosing enhances creativity and promotes innovative thinking. By disrupting rigid thought patterns and fostering a more flexible and open-minded approach to problem-solving, microdosing may help people break through creative blocks and generate novel ideas and insights.

4. Reducing Anxiety and Stress:

Microdosing may offer relief from symptoms of anxiety and stress, allowing people to feel more calm, centered, and resilient in the face of life's challenges. 

By modulating neurotransmitter systems and promoting a more balanced emotional state, microdosing may help people manage stress more effectively and cultivate a greater sense of inner peace and tranquility.

Tips for Integrating Microdosing into Your Wellness Routine

Now that we've covered the basics of microdosing, let's explore some practical tips for beginners looking to incorporate this practice into their wellness routine with care and intention.

1. Educate Yourself: 

Before embarking on a microdosing regimen, take the time to educate yourself about the substances you'll be working with, their potential effects, and best practices for safe and responsible use. 

There are numerous resources available online, including books, articles, and community forums, where you can learn more about microdosing and connect with others who have experience in this area.

2. Start Low and Go Slow: 

When it comes to microdosing, less is often more. Start with a low dose – typically around 1/10th to 1/20th of a standard dose – and gradually titrate up as needed to find your optimal dose. 

Remember that the goal of microdosing is to achieve subtle, sub-perceptual effects, so if you notice any significant alterations in perception or consciousness, you may be taking too much.

3. Create a Routine: 

Consistency is key when it comes to microdosing. Establish a regular dosing schedule that works for you, whether it's every few days, once a week, or on a different schedule tailored to your needs. By sticking to a routine, you'll be able to better track the effects of microdosing and make adjustments as necessary.

4. Keep a Journal: 

Keeping a journal can be a valuable tool for tracking your microdosing experiences and noting any changes in mood, cognition, or behavior. Take note of the dose you took, the time of day, and any other relevant factors that may have influenced your experience. 

Over time, you'll be able to identify patterns and gain a deeper understanding of how microdosing affects you personally.

5. Practice Self-Care: 

Microdosing can be a powerful tool for self-exploration and personal growth, but it's essential to approach it with self-care and compassion. Pay attention to your physical and emotional needs, and take time to nourish yourself with healthy food, exercise, and relaxation techniques. 

If you ever feel overwhelmed or uncomfortable during a microdosing experience, remember that it's okay to take a break or seek support from a trusted friend or mental health professional.

6. Cultivate Mindfulness: 

Finally, approach microdosing with a spirit of mindfulness and presence. Set aside time for reflection and introspection, and approach each dose with intention and reverence. 

By cultivating a mindful attitude towards microdosing, you can deepen your connection with yourself and the world around you, fostering a sense of peace, clarity, and gratitude in your daily life.

7. Create a Supportive Environment:

It's essential to create a supportive environment for your microdosing journey, both physically and emotionally. Surround yourself with positive influences, whether it's supportive friends and family members or a nurturing home environment. 

Consider setting up a dedicated space for your microdosing sessions, where you can relax, reflect, and engage in self-care activities.

8. Seek Support and Guidance:

If you're new to microdosing or have questions or concerns, don't hesitate to seek support and guidance from experienced practitioners or trusted sources. Join online communities or forums where you can connect with others who have experience with microdosing and share insights and advice. 

9. Listen to Your Body:

Listen to your body and trust your intuition throughout your microdosing journey. Pay attention to how different doses affect you physically, mentally, and emotionally, and adjust your regimen accordingly. 

If you ever feel uncomfortable or overwhelmed during a microdosing session, honor your feelings and take a step back. 

10. Practice Gratitude and Reflection:

After each microdosing session, take a few moments to reflect on your experience and express gratitude for the insights and benefits it may have brought. 

Journaling about your thoughts, emotions, and any changes you notice can help deepen your understanding of how microdosing is impacting your well-being. 


Integrating microdosing into your wellness routine is a deeply personal journey that requires patience, curiosity, and self-awareness. 

By approaching microdosing with an open mind and a willingness to explore new possibilities, you can tap into the transformative potential of these powerful substances and unlock a deeper sense of connection, creativity, and well-being. 


1. Is it necessary to have previous experience with psychedelics before starting a microdosing regimen?

While prior experience with psychedelics can provide some familiarity with altered states of consciousness, it is not a prerequisite for microdosing. Beginners can start with careful research, education, and guidance to embark on their microdosing journey safely.

2. Can microdosing interfere with other medications or supplements I'm taking?

It's essential to be mindful of potential interactions between microdosing substances and any medications or supplements you're currently using. Consulting with a healthcare professional before starting a microdosing regimen can help ensure compatibility and mitigate risks.

3. How long does it take to notice the effects of microdosing, and how long do they typically last?

The onset and duration of effects can vary depending on factors such as dosage, people's biology, and set and setting. While some beginners may notice subtle changes in mood or cognition after a few doses, others may require more time to experience noticeable effects.
