The Czech Psychedelic Society’s newest project, PsyCare, is a free service aimed at providing professional help at larger music events to individuals undergoing a challenging psychedelic experience that could otherwise have unpleasant psychological consequences. Basically, they are creating the Czech version of the Zendo Project and KosmiCare. And they are leveraging the power of crowdfunding to do it.
"You know, since we have been children, we have been pushed to do sports. To keep our “physical temple” fit. On the other hand, you have consciousness. Some people train it with meditation, lucid dreaming, yoga, etc. And then you have psychedelics and other psychoactive drugs. We can think of their use as an adrenaline sport for the mind. Adrenaline sports are generally dangerous but that doesn’t mean that we should forbid them. Instead, we apply safety measures that help to make these activities safer. And that is exactly where psychedelic harm reduction is aiming. Reduce the harms."
