Connecting and collaborating have been an important part of our mission in microdosing.nl since day one. We’ve got to know a lot of people from the psychedelic field. We have built bridges to science and worked together with organizations and universities as much as possible. Just as mycelium is an indispensable communication system in nature, we believe that this network provides a strong and reliable ecosystem.
Below you can find an overview of who we work with.
James Fadiman PhD
James Fadiman probably doesn’t really need an introduction anymore, he’s commonly being referred to as the ‘godfather of microdosing’. As the founder of Microdosing Psychedelics he’s become a dear friend and advisor to the Microdosing Institute team. Via weekly email contact, we inform each other about the latest findings, risks and other relevant microdosing news. Needless to say, we are honored and find it very valuable to have James Fadiman on our advisory board.
Stay tuned for the next edition!
PhD University of Maastricht
Kim works as an assistant professor at Maastricht University. Her research focuses on understanding the neurobiology that underlies creativity, empathy and well-being. For this purpose she uses a psychopharmacology model, in which she studies the acute, sub-acute and longer-lasting effects of psychedelics on behaviors and biology.
The generated insights can be used to improve flexible thinking and social skills in the daily life of pathological populations, thereby improving their quality of life and feeling of well-being.
PhD Beckley foundation, Imperial College London
Balazs is a member of the “Beckley foundation’s self-blinding microdosing project”, an innovative study that allows microdosers to implement placebo control during self-experimentation.
Toby Lea, PhD
Toby is a Humboldt Foundation Research Fellow at the German Institute for Addiction and Prevention Research, Cologne, and an Adjunct Lecturer at the Center for Social Research in Health, UNSW Sydney, Australia. He conducts applied social health research on the use of psychedelics as novel therapies for mental health, as well as research on substance use and harm reduction among sexual and gender minority people.
Psychedelic Society of the Netherlands (PSN)
PSN has been closely involved with our platform from the beginning. In December 2016 we organized together the first microdosing event in the world, where the first unique microdose research took place. During that event we decided to set up a website and platform. Without their help we would never be able to make such a flying start. Most of our projects are being run in collaboration with PSN.
To stay up to date, so sign up for their newsletter and be informed about the interesting events they organize.
Today the San Francisco Psychedelic Society is a bay area 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to weaving community with people from all walks of life who share an interest in the exploration of altered states of consciousness. Our mission is to educate and advocate for altered states of consciousness by providing community, support and integration resources to those seeking harm reduction, addiction recovery, spiritual growth and personal development. We emphasize honoring indigenous lineages, access without dogma and the destigmatization of all drugs.
Our partners from this microdosing research foundation are a real asset to our platform. Vista+ consists of a group of enthusiastic volunteers who guide members in setting up, microdosing, collecting data and achieving personal growth. They share their findings and make their data available to dedicated researchers who want to lay a foundation for future research.
Their goal is to provide well-founded information about the benefits and effects of microdosing for professional and emotional growth, in the hope that society as a whole will eventually shift perception of psychedelic use to a more holistic approach.
The Open Foundation has been our source of inspiration from the beginning. Their thorough and serious approach really appeals to us. We have learned a lot from them.
OPEN Foundation is an independent non-profit NGO, based in the Netherlands. OPEN was founded in 2007 with the main aim of stimulating scientific research into therapeutic applications of psychedelics. OPEN functions as a central hub in an ever-expanding network of experts in the field of psychedelic research in the Netherlands and Europe.
APRA stands for Psychedelic Research and Education. The focus of the association is determined by all academic efforts (from the sciences and humanities) related to substances and practices that are promising for therapy and research, but which have a reduced research development due to their legal status or psychoactive effects. Keep an eye on the APRA’s agenda if you are interested in psychedelic research.
Regina U. Hess and David Heuer have become friends of our team and played a crucial role in bridging the gap of integrating insights during a psychedelic experience. We believe that microdosing has even more value in the run-up to a higher dose or after a high dose of psychedelics. We are very happy that they have developed the perfect integration program for that. In the near future we hope to establish a microdosing integration program together with them.
Psychedelic Society UK
Documentary maker Anya Oleksiuk of the psychedelic society UK is making a beautiful and unique documentary entitled “The Psychedelic Renaissance”. Our team had the pleasure of appearing in this film. We support Anya in making this documentary because we believe that it will break further the stigma that still hangs around psychedelics. Anya has also filmed our last Microdosing.nl Seminar.
The Psychedelic Renaissance
Anya is a co-director of the Psychedelic Society UK, leading on video production and campaigning for the decriminalization of psychedelic plants and mushrooms. She is associated with the Psychedelic Society of the Netherlands and volunteers as a consultant for the Polish Psychedelic Society (Polskie Towarzystwo Psychodeliczne). Love for documentary films and music videos led Anya to study MA Documentary and Experimental Filmmaking. After completing her masters, she joined the End-Of-Life Care charity, Marie Curie, running their video department. She set off as a freelancer in 2016 and specialized in not-for-profit videos, music videos and documentaries. In 2017 she founded Triptika Studios, which is a collective of independent filmmakers with interests in health, science, innovative solutions, mental health, drug advocacy, social and racial justice and environment-friendly lifestyles. Anya aims for Triptika Studios to work on projects oriented towards social change and improving human wellbeing.
Psychedelic Experience is a platform and directory for psychedelic organizations all over the world. People can leave their reviews about the organizations and retreats using the independent review system. Tim Cools and Ahnjilli Zhuparris aim to use their platform to reduce the harm and stigma of psychedelics by providing the best possible information to users as well as tools for integrating their experiences and a space for common support.
This movement was born as a response to the stigma in society about the use of psychoactive plants and psychedelic-assisted therapy. They’ve organized a global wave of gratitude on 20th of February 2020, calling on people to “come out” with their stories of healing and transformation, using the hashtag #ThankYouPlantMedicine.
I am an author and lifestyle adventurer. I went from being overweight, burnt out and unhappy, to developing superhuman focus, fitness and personal freedom. I put myself through numerous experiments and challenges. I optimized my lifestyle, conquered the cold, ran ultramarathons on my bare feet, tested countless diets, read a ton of scientific literature and explored as many esoteric practices I could find. With over ten thousand hours of experience in teaching science, self-mastery and innovation, I decided to demystify and methodize these principles in a fun and bitesized manner. As a final test of my focus, I wrote this book within a month, so that I would have to practice every single thing I preach. Thanks to the principles in this book, I’ve managed to live a life of empowerment and freedom, and I sincerely wish you the same! Wanna know what I’m up to now?
