Rumpistol – Going Inside
Going Inside – an album made specifically for psychedelic therapy and inner journeys. It is Rumpistol’s 8th album and concludes a trilogy of piano based albums made for mental health reasons.
Going Inside was made in close dialogue with professionals working in psychedelic therapy in his country Denmark. It was partly inspired by the long line of work done by ceremonial facilitators around the world, and partly by The Copenhagen Music Program for Psilocybin-assisted Therapy, which has been developed at Rigshopitalet’s Neurobiological Research Unit and Copenhagen University Hospital.
If you use the music in therapy or ceremonial work or have comments, we would be excited to hear about it.
