About Vismay Agrawal

I work as a psychedelic coach and have facilitated over 60 one-on-one private guided psychedelic retreats. In the past, I have worked with Synthesis Institute and Psychedelic Insights, both renowned providers of psilocybin retreats in the Netherlands.

Personally, I have explored altered states of consciousness through experiences with psilocybin, 5-MeO-DMT, ayahuasca, DMT, MDMA, salvia, ketamine, and other psychedelics. Additionally, I am a mindfulness coach with over 2,000 hours of personal meditation practice and have guided hundreds of clients on their mindfulness journeys.

Besides coaching, I am pursuing doctoral research at the Monash Centre for Consciousness and Contemplative Studies. My research focuses on understanding suffering and its underlying causal mechanisms. I aim to create an interdisciplinary framework by integrating insights from contemplative traditions, cognitive neuroscience, psychedelic studies, and psychology to deepen the understanding of suffering and its alleviation.

Through these diverse experiences, I have come to realise that psychedelics are not magical pills that can instantly heal our wounds. In a controlled setting, a psychedelic experience may offer a glimpse into the profound, interconnected nature of everything. However, enduring changes only come with integrating the insights into daily life.

Vismay Agrawal's approach to integration

I guide with sensitivity to detect the roots of grasping that lead to suffering. My interdisciplinary background allows me to empathise with your unique experiences and provide the support you need to find freedom.

My approach includes:

  1. Cultivating Mental Skills: I guide individuals in developing mindfulness and stable attention to avoid being overwhelmed in difficult situations.
  2. Opening the Heart: I create a nurturing space where you can be vulnerable and safely heal the wounds of the heart.
  3. Investigating the Mind: I help in understanding how mind makes meaning and takes perspectives to find greater clarity in life.
  4. Unifying Heart and Mind: I offer practices that allow insights to solidify into enduring wisdom and behavioral changes in everyday life experiences.
