The Importance of Set and Setting during a Psychedelic Trip

If you are planning on taking magic mushrooms, it is important to take the necessary precautions to ensure a good trip. One of these precautions is set and setting. What does this mean? Simply put, your surroundings and mindset will affect your experience with psychedelics – even if they are not psychedelic in nature!

The Set

Set refers to the mindset you are in when you trip. You want to choose a day where you don’t have much to do, and you want to try and eliminate any preconceived notions you may have about mushrooms, even if you’ve tripped before. 

Setting your goals or intent should also be done before consuming the shrooms. 

We do not recommend tripping if you recently went through something traumatic like grief or a bad breakup. Yes, psychedelics can help you heal, but they work better when you’ve done half the work yourself, time did a quarter, and you still have that last bit of healing that just keeps dragging on. This is when psychedelics come in handy to bury the hatchet.

If an emotional wound is still fresh, you may feed into your negative emotions rather than feed into hope, and that could lead to a bad trip. But if you haven’t gone through anything traumatic in the last couple of months, the chances of a bad trip diminish greatly!

The Setting

The setting(or location) you choose depends on the type of trip you want to have. For a more external trip, go in nature. For something that’s more inside your mind, lean towards a home trip. Regardless of the location, be sure it’s somewhere familiar that you are comfortable in. Don’t trip for the first time on vacation somewhere new; it might end in a bad trip.

The keyword here is comfort. Find a place where you are comfortable, and you should be fine.
