We all have different goals in mind when it comes to neurohacking. For many people it's something straightforward like getting bulked up or loosing weight, boosting libido and sexual performance and so on. Others are doing it to fix specific mental issues such as depression and anxiety, which is how I got started. But beyond that what drives me now is interest in getting to know myself and playing with different aspects of my personality and seeing the world from different perspectives. I guess you could call this a "neuro-intellectual" form of psychospirituality.

What I found out is that I'm sort of a loner in my endeavor. People in MBTI/Jungian forums do not believe that cognitive functions can be altered, they think they are fixed but I think that comes from lack of familiarity with the powers of psychoparmacology. (They are probably fixed to some degree but in my experience they are a lot less fixed than most people believe them to be). On other hand, people on forums like this tend to be very science focused and have little interest in Jungian psychology. Just curious if anyone else out there who is proficient at both?

I'm into bio-hacking - though not realy neuro, since my chronic diseases brought to remission are rather physical, and psychology - though not really jungian.

 

My few experiments with psychodelics when young quikly got superseeded with daily meditation practice. Also very intense self-exploration in retreat-settings for more than 3 years.

Have you used any TCM or Ayurvedic herbs to enhance your meditative states?

I find that "intuitive"  states from Jungian perspective are much more conducive to regulating inner energy through yoga and meditation. I'm not as serious about these practices as you are but I've studied them and I've learned from them - also from TCM and its Qi energy regulation theory.

Mainly Ayurvedic herbs for their manyfold functions. Started to get rid of a year long chronic bronchitis in 2012. However, if one doesn't have any mental complaints (like anhedonia, anxiety etc.) the extent of their mental effects are a bid difficult to assess. I don't feel any difference for example in through meditation induced blissful states with for example a lot of Ashwagandha, Bacopa, Shankapuspi, Gota Kola, Schisandra, Rhodiola etc. - or without any herbs.

 

I'm sort of a happy camper with and without anyway. By getting rid of my physical disabilties of course even more so. However, my long retreat situations are already at least 15 years ago, and were clearly the most deepest going without any herbs. Not only with highs, but for getting really intimate with one's own abysses.
