Psychonaut is an awareness project created to encourage healing, personal development and reconnection via transcendental experiences. The word Psychonaut can be traced back to ancient Greece with the word Psyche meaning “soul or spirit” and nautikos meaning “sailor,” translating to “sailor of the soul.” Psychonauts often use alternative states of consciousness as a tool for self-discovery, to reconnect with themselves, others, and the natural world.
Each day, there are more and more prominent psychonauts sharing their vividly real and synchronistic experiences. They have explored inner and outer space, reaching beyond the rational to discover their own sacred truths. They have also helped to shatter the stigmas associated with Psychonaut culture. We believe their stories, and ours, are the key to unlocking the door to a “more beautiful world our hearts know is possible”—one built on love.
Recognizing that there are many access points to alternative states of mind, our goal is to raise awareness about the different methods from psychedelics, meditation, breathing techniques and more. Everyone is unique as is each tool for connecting to higher consciousness. Depending on your current reality and perception, some tools may be more effective than others. We view all doorways to psychedelic experiences as sacred tools to be used with great care and reverence.

Microdosing LSD has been shown to have profound long-term effects on people with chronic illness or life-threatening diseases. These changes included reductions in anxiety, valuable insights, and improved quality of life. It has also been found to boost creatively and increase flow states.
