INTEGRATe PLANT MEDICINE INSIGHTS INTO DAILY LIFE through micro-dosing
Would you like to start micro-dosing, but not sure how, or create a process that is optimised for your unique wishes? Have you tried micro-dosing or once but would like to continue this path for more long-term personal growth? Leila (plant medicine and micro-dosing coach) would like to support you through a unique 6-week micro-dosing cycle focusing on integration insights and observations into a mindful daily lifestyle, with guided journaling and integration practices, especially for breaking the patterns that no longer serve you, and improving awareness, focus and creativity.
What: “Microdosing psychedelics is the practice of consuming very low, sub-hallucinogenic doses of a psychedelic substance, such as lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) or psilocybin-containing mushrooms. ”― Harm Reduction Journal
Benefits: “People micro-dose for many reasons; ranging from increasing their productivity and creativity to finding relief from pain, or to combat specific medical complaints. Microdosing is not a magic bullet but a tool you can use to accelerate your process of awareness, maximise your healing, and take care of your own life.” — Microdose Institute
How: It is important to recognise that micro-dosers experience greater benefits when micro-dosing with proper preparation, intention and integration. In all cases, the responsibility to actively integrate the gained insights into our lives lies with each one of us but a micro-dosing coach can certainly help with that process.

Leila = Sanskrit for The Dance of Life. It is an invitation to, with a playful attitude, meet both the dark and bright sides of life’s waves. I am rooted in both East and West with a passionate love to be inspired and inspire people to share our own aliveness and gifts of life, in connection with nature and plant medicine. I have been actively involving in educating and guiding psychedelic journeys and micro-dosing events over the last 5 years. Besides psychedelics and plant medicine, Leila practices the flow of Dao/Tao (the way of nature), Mindfulness (e.g. Tea Ceremonies) and Intuitive Art Expressions (Authenticity/Aliveness). With all combined, Leila is here to support people like you to integrate those wisdoms, insights and ritualistic moments into daily life.
MY UNIQUE APPROACH
I like to get to know you first. Then together design a personalised package with full presence and care. Not too much focusing on outcomes but creating the ideal space for the sacred plants to flow naturally and do its work with you. It’s in trusting each other, the plants and the process. Combine ancient shamanic and contemporary approaches, along with a deep focus on creative and holistic practices, where both seasoned explorers and new initiates from different walks of life can experience the potential of inner states of consciousness, self-inquiry and personal growth. However it takes intentional integration, from weeks to months, sometimes even years. Integration is where your journey really starts, and we can navigate the process together.
MY PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND
I have graduated and studied from Fungi Academy on mushroom cultivation and psychedelic journey guide, Micro-dosing Institute. I have been co-creating psychedelic/plant medicine education and events with organisations like Kokopelli, Mahara Holistic Lifestyle and Women on Psychedelics.
