What is Psilocybin?
Psilocybin mushrooms and truffles are naturally occurring and contain the psychoactive compound psilocybin. It has been used in religious rituals in indigenous cultures in Mexico and Central America for thousands of years. Researchers at Johns Hopkins found that psilocybin was an effective treatment for depression and nicotine and alcohol addictions, as well as other substance use disorders.

Under the influence of the active ingredient psilocybin, the brain opens up new avenues of exploration. Connections are made that are not normally active. This process can lead to new insights, process stuck emotions and traumas, and positively influence the interpretation of life after the experience. We discover entirely new ways of thinking about the world and ourselves, expanding our awareness.

Our experienced team is there to assist you in this ceremony, to hold space and create a safe container. We work with (live) music, instruments and other experiential tools. Are you ready for a life-changing journey into yourself?
