Psilocybin Therapy | Moyenda Research & Healing Institute

Our research into the benefits of Psilocybin Therapy continues as we explore the role that Therapeutic Music can play when Psilocybin is administered in a controlled setting and study the cause and effects between sound waves and Psychedelic Treatments.

To fully comprehend the profound connection between Therapeutic Music and Psilocybin, we must first acknowledge the specific impacts music has on our brain.

Music has always held a profound place in human culture as it transcends boundaries and language barriers to touch the deepest parts of our souls.

Numerous studies have consistently demonstrated that music holds a unique ability to influence our neural pathways, trigger emotional responses and shape our cognitive experiences. [See Footnotes]

Therapeutic Music encompasses various techniques and approaches aimed at promoting physical, emotional, and mental well-being.

Whether through soothing melodies, rhythmic beats or harmonious sounds of nature, Therapeutic Music has the ability to calm the mind, uplift the spirit and facilitate healing processes.

Music has been used for centuries in religious rituals, healing ceremonies and as a form of therapy to evoke specific emotions; essentially to alter our state of consciousness in order to holistically promote physical and spiritual healing.


Our brain's receptivity to musical stimuli sets the stage for a fascinating exploration when combined with the effects of Psilocybin.

At the forefront of this exploration stands a notable research study from 2019 that offers a comprehensive understanding on how music is intricately intertwined with our neural pathways and influences our cognitive experiences and most notably, it also enhances the effects of Psilocybin. [See Footnote: 2]

This research shows there is a significant synergy between music and Psilocybin and it can transform the physical Psilocybin encounter into a multidimensional experience as it acts as a catalyst that intensifies the heightened state of awareness induced by Psilocybin; a virtuous cycle.

The harmonious collaboration of music and Psilocybin transcends auditory pleasure and becomes an integral component that amplifies our sensory perceptions and contributes significantly to the overall richness of the Psilocybin effects.

This research has provided a foundation for comprehending the intricate dance that unfolds within the consciousness of individuals undergoing this unique and transformative experience with Psilocybin.

A separate independent study reveals an anatomically distinct dopamine release during anticipation and experience of peak emotion to music that further emphasizes the intricate connection between music and our brain; and how it enhances our emotional and cognitive responses. [See Footnote: 1]

Yet another research study in 2020 takes us deeper into the realm of consciousness and cognition as it provides insights into how Psilocybin can alter our consciousness when combined with music as it creates a unique synergy that amplifies the overall experience. [See Footnote: 3]

All of these studies provide evidence there is a significant connection between sound waves and altered states of consciousness as we are mutually connected through frequency and vibration.

The symbiotic nature between music and Psilocybin allows us to explore the realms of our consciousness in ways that were previously inaccessible.

While Psilocybin has a low potential for addiction and overdose, we recommend consulting with an Expert Practitioner when using it for the first time.

If Psilocybin is not used properly or in the right setting, it may cause anxiety and paranoia; especially when taken with other substances, alcohol or medications.

Those new to Plant Medicines should consult with Moyenda Institute for valuable insights and expert guidance on safe and effective practices.
