MICRO-MOVEMENT

Micro-movement Method is a somatic approach to microdosing.

Movement, Breath Practice and Microdosing is meant to help deepen your understanding and connection with your body and mind.

By taking small amounts of psychedelics and then focusing on movement, breath and sensations, you can gain a new level of insight into your body and mind and their symbiosis.

Enhance Your Neural Plasticity

Psychedelics have been shown to increase neuroplasticity, or the brain’s ability to change and adapt in response to new experiences.
By combining this effect with movement, the brain should be able to create new connections and pathways more effectively.

Increase Creativity

Psychedelics have been shown to increase creativity and open-mindedness, while movement can also have a similar effect.
By combining these practices, individuals may experience a heightened sense of physical and mental creativity and new ideas may emerge.

Reduce Anxiety and Stress

Both movement and psychedelics have been shown to have stress-reducing effects. By combining these practices, individuals may experience greater reductions in anxiety and stress, leading to a more relaxed and focused state of mind.

Improve Body Awareness

Psychedelics have been shown to enhance sensory perception and body awareness. When combining movement, this can lead to
a deeper understanding of the sensations and movements of the body, allowing for more precise and effective movement patterns.

Cerebral Cortex

Processing sensory information and generating conscious thoughts, emotions, and perceptions.

Basal ganglia

Involved in controlling movements and deep rooted habits.

Amygdala

Plays a role in processing emotions, particularly fear and anxiety.

Hippocampus

Responsible for learning, memory, and spatial navigation.

Increase Focus

Microdosing psychedelics may increase focus and attention, making it easier to remain centered during meditation.

Increase Self-Awareness

Psychedelics can enhance sensory perception and increase self-awareness, which leads to a deeper understanding of the body-mind connection during meditation.

Heighten Your Sense of Presence

Microdosing psychedelics may lead to a heightened sense of presence and awareness, which could enhance the overall experience of meditation.

The Structure of the Mind

The mind is a complex entity, and experts from psychology, philosophy, and neuroscience all have their own views on how it’s organized and how it works. Two ancient Indian philosophies, Samkhya and Advaita, offer interesting perspectives on this. Samkhya sees the self as separate from our body and mind – like an observer watching from a distance. Advaita, on the other hand, believes that our true self is the same as the universal consciousness – we’re all part of a bigger whole. These ideas give us different ways to think about our minds and ourselves.

Matter and Spirit

Matter and spirit are two sides of existence that many philosophies and spiritual beliefs talk about. Matter is everything physical that we can touch and see – like trees, animals, and our own bodies. Spirit, on the other hand, is about the non-physical part – things we can’t see or touch, like our thoughts, emotions, and energy. The idea is that these two parts, matter and spirit, exist separately but are both important in understanding the world and ourselves. This concept of duality is a common theme in many philosophical and spiritual discussions.

The Big Five and the Five Elements

The Big Five personality traits are a way to understand people’s characters. They include openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. On the other hand, the Five Elements from traditional Chinese medicine represent different energies: wood (growth and vitality), fire (energy and power), earth (stability and balance), metal (strength and determination), and water (flexibility and wisdom). These two frameworks can be used together to explore the relationship between personality traits and the elemental energies.

The Jungian Psyche

The Jungian Psyche is based on the ideas of Carl Jung, a famous Swiss psychiatrist. Jung introduced the concept of the collective unconscious, a kind of shared mental space that contains memories and ideas inherited from our ancestors. He also talked about archetypes, which are universal symbols or themes found in stories, dreams, and cultures worldwide. According to Jung, these archetypes and the collective unconscious influence our behavior and experiences, helping shape who we are and how we see the world.

Serotonergic Tryptamines Effects

Serotonergic tryptamines include substances like Psilocybin and LSD, which are known for their effects on the brain. These substances work on the serotonin system, which is crucial for mood and perception. People use them in two ways: microdosing and macrodosing. Microdosing means taking very small amounts, often to boost creativity or improve mental well-being without causing major changes in perception. Macrodosing involves larger doses that can lead to significant shifts in thought, perception, and sometimes stronger therapeutic breakthroughs. Both methods show the versatile effects of these substances on the brain and mind.

Enhanced Flow States

Enhanced flow states represent moments when we achieve a profound level of engagement and concentration in our activities. In these states, our awareness is so deeply immersed in the task at hand that time seems to stand still and distractions fade away. This intense focus brings a unique sense of joy, fulfillment, and a feeling of being ‘in the zone.’ Such states are not just accidental; they can be cultivated through deliberate practices like mindfulness and meditation, or by engaging in activities that challenge us while aligning with our passions and skills. Achieving these states allows us to tap into our deepest potential, fostering creativity, productivity, and personal growth.

The Breath Connection

The breath is a powerful tool for controlling both the body and the mind. By using conscious breathing techniques, we can change how we feel physically and mentally. Practices like pranayama, which comes from yoga, and various forms of breathwork help us relax, focus better, and improve our overall well-being. These techniques show how simply changing the way we breathe can have a big impact on our health and state of mind.

The Healing Voice

Sound, music, and singing can be powerful healing tools. They can deeply affect our emotions and even our physical health. Listening to music, singing along, or even just hearing a soothing voice can lift our spirits, reduce stress, and promote a sense of well-being. This shows the incredible power of sound and music to touch our lives and aid in healing.

Bones and Flesh

Bones and flesh alignment is all about how well our bones and muscles work together. When they are properly aligned, our bodies can move more smoothly, and we have better posture. This isn’t just about looking good – proper alignment can help prevent injuries, reduce pain, and improve our overall physical health. It’s a key part of keeping our bodies strong and functioning well.

Evolutionary Biology Time Scale

Evolutionary biology looks at how humans have changed over long periods of time. By studying changes in our bodies, behaviors, and genes, we can understand how we’ve evolved. This time scale approach helps us see the big picture of human development, showing how we’ve adapted and transformed through history.

Microdosing Protocols

Microdosing involves taking very small amounts of substances like psychedelics for various benefits. Different protocols, or plans, guide how often and how much to take. These protocols are designed to help people gain the therapeutic effects of these substances, like improved well-being, focus, mood, and even creativity, without experiencing intense psychedelic effects.

Trauma Echoing in the Body

Trauma can leave deep marks on our bodies, not just our minds. It can lead to physical changes, chronic pain, and altered ways of responding to stress. This shows how powerful our experiences can be and how they can affect us physically, not just emotionally.

Body Types and Personality

Several theories suggest a link between our physical body types and personality traits, particularly focusing on how psychological issues and emotional experiences from childhood can manifest in our bodies. These concepts, put forth by various theorists, propose that our physical form can be a reflection of psychological challenges we’ve faced. The way we physically develop might mirror our inner emotional world and coping mechanisms shaped by early life experiences. This connection offers a deeper understanding of how our physical appearance can relate to, and even reveal, our personality patterns and behaviors.

Hormesis, Immunotherapy, and the DAO

The DAO teaches us about balance – how order and chaos work together. This idea is key to understanding hormesis and immunotherapy. In hormesis, small amounts of stress can actually be good for our body and mind. It’s like giving ourselves a little challenge to become stronger. Immunotherapy works similarly. It slowly exposes the body to what it needs to fight against, like tiny amounts of a harmful substance, so the immune system learns and gets better at protecting us. Both these methods show the DAO’s idea of balance in action. They blend old wisdom with new medical practices, proving that the right balance can lead to better health and growth.

Go Beyond the Five Senses: Discover Your  6th, 7th, and 8th Senses

Microdosing psychedelics have the potential to enhance what some refer to as the 6th, 7th, and 8th senses, going beyond our standard five senses. This suggests that these substances may help us perceive and become aware of elements in our everyday life that are usually beyond our normal sensory range. In other words, it adds new dimensions to how we experience the world, thereby enriching our lives.

Human Needs, Dimensions of Wellness and the Chakra System

Maslow’s hierarchy of needs outlines the different levels of human needs, from basic physical needs to reaching our full potential. The six dimensions of wellness cover physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual, and occupational health. Additionally, the seven chakras are thought to be energy centers in the body, each linked to different life aspects and states of consciousness, as seen in various spiritual practices. Understanding and connecting these elements will allow us to gain a deeper understanding of who we are as individuals as well as what our goals and dreams are, and how we can reach them.
