I’m interested in what you’re hitting on here. How does a writer set appropriate expectations for what’s in their post?
For myself, I’m often pulling from Coach.me data or at least anecdotes. So there’s some “seen this in practice” to almost everything I write.
But I’m sitting on a post right now that’s completely out of my wheelhouse.
Last Sunday I did a holotropic breath workshop (way outside my norm) which induced a psychedelic state (I’ve never done drugs, so this was a first for me) simply through breathing and music.
So I want to write up that experience just to say “I didn’t know this was possible!”
I can’t write that from the perspective of expertise. However, I see value in coming from a different perspective and also introducing the concept to people who wouldn’t normally even hear about that sort of thing.
Probably, and this is what I’m thinking right now, I should write up the personal experience and then try to follow it up with an interview with an expert.
So look forward to my post — “It’s time for you to have a psychedelic experience without drugs.” =)
