Group Psilocybin Journey – Sept 2023

Group Psilocybin Journey

September 30, 2023 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Alphen aan den Rijn

Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands

Psilocybin Truffles – also known as ‘Magic Truffles’ – are a very safe psychedelic medicine that has been used for centuries for its many benefits, and is fully legal to work with here in the Netherlands.

Benefits include improved mental health (psilocybin has for instance been shown to alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD), increased creativity, heightened empathy and compassion which can lead to improved relationships and a greater sense of social connectedness, enhanced neuroplasticity and cognitive flexibility, which might enhance problem-solving abilities and enable travellers to gain new perspectives on areas in life where they might feel stuck and
unable to move forward.

Many people also report profound spiritual experiences while working with Magic Truffles, including feelings of unity and connectedness with others and the universe.

Please find an insightful podcast episode by neuroscientist Andrew Huberman on the benefits and risks of working with psilocybin here.

Working with Psilocybin Truffles in a safe and ceremonial container has the potential to fully unleash the power of this medicine the most a serving way, whilst significantly reducing the risk of having an overwhelming experience.

What to expect

LIVE MUSIC – TRIBE VIBES – DEEP CONNECTION – SAFE SPACE

On this journey we will provide a safe and supportive environment for exploring the potential benefits of the medicine of the truffles, which are native to our lands here and carry the potential for deep healing and transformation. All three of us have many years of experience with plant medicine work and will guide you with gentle care, beautiful live music and loving personal attention.

During ceremony we will also be serving the medicines of cacao and hapé for those that feel called, as they combine extrem well with psilocybin.

CACAO

Cacao in its mostly unprocessed form is an extremely potent superfood with a range of potential health benefits, that is also known as a gentle ‘heart-opening medicine’. The active compounds in cacao bring an increased level of energy and focus to the system, and support the release of endorphins, which can lead to feelings of euphoria and bliss.

HAPÉ

Hapé, also known as rapé, is a traditional sacred medicine used by indigenous tribes in the Amazon basin. Hapé helps to clear the mind that is running in circles, promotes mental clarity, and increases focus.

It can also bring a sense of calm and relaxation. Some people even report having spiritual experiences while using hapé, including feelings of connectedness with nature and others.

Your guides

Anna

Anna is a ‘modern medicine woman’ – deeply connected to the timeless wisdom of the plants, yet strongly rooted in the modern world. She’s a ceremony facilitator, doula, biohacker, holistic health coach, breathworker and musician. In her work she focuses on helping others navigate through processes of growth and transformation, and has already guided hundreds of people through psychedelic journeys in both group and individual settings.

Biba

Biba’s voice finds expression in the here and now as she surrenders to the flow of the journey. This is how she connects with the sounds of her heart and follows the rhythm of the medicine. With grounded organic melodies, inspired by the seasons, Biba helps you connect with a deeper layer of yourself and emerging
emotions. She accompanies her voice with different instruments – as well as silence.

Kelly

Since (re)discovering the medicine woman within herself, Kelly can fully experience the magic and the joy of life again. The path she’s walking now is mainly about feeling and growing the feminine energy. In yourself, your relationship, your work and your life. She likes working with cacao, truffles and music in a safe and sacred space for people to heal in.
