What is a truffle ceremony?
A truffle ceremony is a group session where participants consume psilocybin-containing truffles under the guidance of 1 or multiple guides called tripsitters. Psilocybin is a psychedelic substance that can induce profound changes in perception, mood, and cognition. A truffle ceremony can have various purposes, such as personal growth, spiritual exploration, healing, or social bonding.
A truffle ceremony typically involves the following steps:
- Preparation: The participants are advised to follow a healthy diet, sleep well, and avoid alcohol and drugs before the ceremony. They also receive information about the effects and risks of psilocybin, and how to set their intentions and expectations for the experience. At Triptherapie we’ll also give personal advice to improve the neurochemistry and mindset.
- Setting: The ceremony takes place in a comfortable and safe environment in Schiedam. We’ll create a pleasant atmosphere with music, candles, aromatherapy, cushions, and blankets.
- Consumption: The participants consume the truffles orally, either whole or in a tea. The dosage depends on the individual’s body weight, sensitivity, and desired intensity of the experience. We’ll be monitoring the participants and provides support and guidance if needed.
- Experience: The first effects of psilocybin start to manifest after 10 to 30 minutes and last for 4 to 7 hours. The participants may experience visual, auditory, tactile, or emotional alterations, as well as insights, revelations, or mystical experiences.
- Integration: After the effects wear off, the participants are free to share their experience. They may also write down their reflections or draw their visions. We can provide feedback and advice on how to apply the lessons learned from the experience to their daily lives.
