Make Yourself Hallucinate Experiment

– Today we're going to make ourselves hallucinate by simply breathing – Let's talk about that

(playful theme music) Good Mythical Morning – Tripping isn't just for hippies who take illegal drugs, or people who forget to tie their shoes, no, it can be for everyone now because of something called holotropic breathwork – Yeah, holotropic breathwork is a specific type of breathing method that when done correctly can induce hallucinations But will it for us? Let's find out, We 'Bout to Breathe from Our Snouts to See if We Trip Outs Okay, typically holotropic breathwork is done within the context of a therapeutic session, and based on the vidoes I've seen, it can get pretty intense, sometimes the sessions last up to three hours, we're gonna see what we can experience in under 10 minutes

– And now, there are some risks associated with this exercise, and we're not completely familiar with all of 'em, but we're gonna take our risk and do it ourselves, but we advise you not to do it, just watch us do it Welcome to our zen den We have all the accoutrements of a typical zen den We have plant life, we have that thing – You can change behind there

– We have this thing – We're also dressed like this, and I can't decide if I'm about to perform jiu-jitsu or paint a house – Now in order to do this correctly, you gotta be dressed correctly, you gotta have the right setting, but we just can't do this on our own, we need a breathwork facilitator, and we've thought of everything, please welcome Harris Adell – Welcome Harris – Thank you, thanks guys for having me

I've also brought my friend Sean, and he's going to be providing the soundscape for us– – That's why he's here, I didn't introduce myself yet, I was a little uncomfortable, but you're gonna be providing the sounds I'm ready to channel the messages of my body – Sure, yeah, let's go ahead and get settled, and just get comfortable and make yourself at home in your zen den – Do I do dead person hands or do I do? – I'll guide you through that, too So to start, I just want to walk you through what the breath is, just give you some information about what you might expect in your body, physical sensations

The breath is in and out through the mouth, and it's you inhale into your stomach (inhale), into your chest (inhale), and out through your mouth (exhale) – Do I have to make the noise? – It helps to make noise, the sighing helps move any energy stagnation out of your body, and so I'll tell you when to start, and things to expect– – Thought I started – Things to expect, there is a sensation and connition that happens sometimes called Temi, where your hands will clench up like lobster claws – Timmy – Yes – Is it named after, it happened to a boy named Timmy? – It's a medical acronym

– I just would request that both of you call me Timmy the rest of this exercise – Okay Timmy – Alright, so just relax, remember that you're safe and just keep breathing So, you guys ready? – Timmy is ready – Timmy number two is ready

– We're gonna start, we're gonna do seven cycles of this breath, going through each of our seven energy centers in the body, and I'll be walking you through that, and guiding you on this breath journey, and Sean's going to be also supporting us in this process and guiding us with sound – He's like a breath DJ – Yes, exactly – DJ Breath's in the corner – Exactly

  1. I’m sorry but I don’t think it’s legit. I honestly think they were just very under oxygenated, which does surprise me because of the way she was having them breath XD
