The Kind Teacher Protocol

THE KIND TEACHER PROTOCOL

When it comes to microdosing, there's no "one size fits all" formula. Our protocol empowers you how to be your own teacher by teaching you to understand what the medicine means when it speaks to you, so you can translate insights into transformations and personalize your protocol in the way that works best for you. Because YOU are the medicine!

Weeks 1-2

Mindset

Think of weeks 1-2 like muscle building. If you haven’t exercised in a while, it’s easy to get sore. Rather than overdoing it, take your time, ease your way in and prioritize developing a relationship with the medicine so you understand what it means when it speaks.

The goal during this period is to pay attention to what comes up and ask yourself: what is the medicine trying to tell me?

Focus

When the medicine speaks, it’s simply highlighting areas that need examining. Integration is the practice of bringing awareness to navigate what comes up. There are insights in every signal that presents itself, for example:

  • Tired? Rest.

  • Headache? Mitigate overthinking with meditation.

  • Energized? Create.

  • Triggered? Pause.

Schedule:

Start low & slow: 5 days ON, 2 days OFF

Microdose:

Total dose, taken once in the morning:

  • Microdose: 100-300mg

Weeks 3-4

Mindset

Now that you've developed a relationship to medicine, the next two weeks or more of your protocol are about personalizing your design so you can translate insights into transformations.

 

Our recommendations for schedule and dose are just that: recommendations. You know yourself best, so we encourage you to modify your protocol design to meet your needs.

Focus

Turning insights into transformations replaces old tendencies with new healthy habits:

  • Proactive rest vs.normalizing exhaustion

  • Creating a meditation practice vs. habitual overthinking

  • Pausing, refleceting & responding vs. emotional reactivity

Schedule:

Approach 1: For users with sensitive to normal tolerance. Also recommended for: neuroplasticity, mental sharpness, creativity, flow state, spiritual growth & anxiety.

Continue slow & low:

  • 3-4 days ON

  • 3-4 days OFF

Approach 2: For users with normal to high tolerance. Also recommended for: trauma, blocks & triggers, deep healing, ego or consistent high stress work-life.

Higher dose with more rest days:

  • 3 days ON

  • 4 days OFF

Microdose:

Approach 1: Total daily dose, taken once in the morning:

  • Microdose: 100-150mg

Approach 2: Total daily dose, taken once in the morning or in smaller intervals throughout the day:

  • Microdose: 175-300mg

NOTE: If your dose is higher than 150mg during weeks 3-4, be mindful of developing a tolerance to the medicine by adding more OFF days to your schedule.
