"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.



Turning the Page at 50: How Micodosing Catalyzes Personal Growth

Turning the Page at 50: How Micodosing Catalyzes Personal Growth

May 16, 20246 min read

Embarking on a new chapter in life at the age of 50 may seem daunting, but it's also an opportunity for profound personal growth and transformation. 

In this blog post, we'll discuss how microdosing can catalyze embracing change, discovering new passions, and unlocking untapped potential as you turn the page to a new decade of life.

Embracing Change at 50: A Journey of Self-Discovery

Entering your fifties marks a significant milestone—a time of reflection, introspection, and perhaps a reevaluation of priorities and goals. While change can be intimidating, it also offers the chance to step into a new phase of life with renewed vigor and purpose. 

Microdosing provides a unique pathway for embracing change and embarking on a journey of self-discovery at this pivotal stage in life.

Microdosing as a Catalyst for Personal Growth

Let's explore some of how microdosing can act as a catalyst for personal growth at 50 and beyond.

1. Cultivating Self-Awareness and Reflection:

At 50, many of us have accumulated a wealth of life experiences, both positive and negative, that have shaped our identities and perspectives. Microdosing can facilitate deeper self-awareness and reflection, allowing us to gain insight into our patterns of thought, behavior, and emotional responses. 

By quieting the noise of the mind and dissolving the boundaries of the ego, microdosing can provide a fresh perspective on our lives, helping us to identify areas for growth, healing, and self-improvement.

2. Navigating Transitions and Uncertainty:

Turning 50 often coincides with significant life transitions, such as career changes, relationship shifts, or health challenges. Microdosing can help us navigate these transitions with greater ease and grace, providing clarity, insight, and emotional resilience in the face of uncertainty. 

By promoting neuroplasticity and enhancing connectivity within the brain's network hubs, microdosing can help us adapt to change more effectively, embrace new opportunities, and overcome obstacles with confidence and resilience.

3. Rediscovering Passion and Purpose:

As we reach the midpoint of life, many of us may find ourselves questioning our sense of purpose and direction. Microdosing can reignite our passion for life and help us reconnect with our innate sense of purpose and meaning. 

By fostering a sense of awe, wonder, and reverence for the mysteries of existence, microdosing can inspire us to pursue our dreams, explore new interests, and embrace life's infinite possibilities with enthusiasm and curiosity.

4. Healing and Integration:

Microdosing can also serve as a powerful tool for healing past traumas, unresolved emotions, and limiting beliefs that may be holding us back from realizing our full potential. 

By promoting neurogenesis and neuroplasticity, microdosing can help us rewire neural pathways associated with negative patterns of thought and behavior, allowing us to release old wounds and embrace a new sense of wholeness and integration. 

5. Fostering Connection and Community:

Finally, microdosing can foster connection and community, providing opportunities for meaningful engagement, collaboration, and support. 

Whether it's participating in group microdosing ceremonies, attending psychedelic integration circles, or connecting with like-minded people online, microdosing can help us feel less alone on our journey of personal growth and self-discovery. 

6. Embracing Aging with Grace:

Turning 50 is a reminder of the passage of time and the inevitability of aging. Microdosing can help people embrace the aging process with grace and gratitude, fostering a sense of acceptance and appreciation for the wisdom and experience that come with age. 

By promoting a positive mindset and a deeper connection to the present moment, microdosing enables people to approach the aging process with curiosity, resilience, and a sense of wonder.

Practical Tips for Microdosing at 50

Now that we've explored the potential benefits of microdosing for personal growth at 50, let's discuss some practical tips for incorporating microdosing into your life 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 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.

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.


As you turn the page at 50, remember that the journey of personal growth is ongoing—a continuous process of self-discovery, learning, and transformation. Microdosing offers a pathway for embracing change, rediscovering passion and purpose, and navigating the challenges of midlife with grace and resilience.


1. Is microdosing safe for people over 50?

While research on microdosing is still in its early stages, there is growing evidence to suggest that microdosing can be safe for people of all ages when done responsibly and with proper guidance. 

2. Can microdosing interact with medications commonly taken by older adults?

There is limited research on potential interactions between microdosing substances and medications commonly taken by older adults. It's crucial to consult with a healthcare professional to assess any potential risks or interactions before incorporating microdosing into your wellness routine.

3. How long does it take to experience the effects of microdosing?

Microdosing effects vary based on dosage, biology, and environment. Some may notice subtle changes quickly, while others may require patience for noticeable effects, emphasizing the need for a flexible, open-minded approach.
