About Not So Profound (NSP)

Not So Profound (beta) is an indie newsletter dedicated to covering psychedelics, spirituality, and our peculiar love affair with the universe.

Stay up to date with new content sent straight to your inbox.

No more worrying about whether you missed something because of a pesky algorithm or news feed controlled by some big tech company.

Besides, it might be time to take a break from all that doom-scrolling and bring some psyche-delight into your life.

We passionately handcraft each edition in an entertaining manner, intending to offer you an infusion of delight during your busy day — all in less than <5-10 minutes of reading per issue.

It is written & curated by Dr. D — a Professional Psychonaut and Flâneur with a penchant for dirty humor, and his trusty sidekick, Mustafa a praying mantis, and former Mormon turned atheist, with a slick mustache and multiple degrees in nihilism from a now-defunct Online University.

Not So Profound — a  hand curated newsletter for those interested in Psychedelics & Spirituality.
Dr. D and his Mantis-bro & sidekick Mustafa go on frequent cosmic adventures in order to curate each edition of Not So Profound for your reading pleasure.

The duo goes on frequent, off-the-beaten-path cosmic adventures together in search of wisdom & insights that expand your consciousness and nourish your soul — then, filters everything through decades of personal experience, and distills it all into an entertaining email digest just for you.

Thousands of highly engaged readers find Not So Profound to be a delightfully unique perspective not found anywhere else in the galaxy.

Why did you start NSP?

Our mission is to override social conditioning, heal, and free humanity from the clutches of the hive mind — one reader at a time.

The primary motivation for starting NSP is to organize a passionate community of like-minded individuals from around the world, so we can stand together for what we believe in, and if necessary, mobilize toward shared causes to help make a difference, together.

It's so we could band together as a tribe and heal together, regardless of who you are or where you are.

Plus, we're already obsessed with psychedelics & spirituality, so this doesn't even feel like work.
