We use Truffles because that is legal in the Netherlands. Truffles are sclerotica (mycelium thickenings) which grow underground and are a part of the fungi, just like the fruit bodies that grow above the ground. The part that grows underground consists of the same active compounds as the ones that grow above the ground.  We use Truffles instead of Mushrooms because Truffles are legal in Holland and Mushrooms are not. In our texts we mainly speak about Mushrooms and less about Truffles, because people outside of the Netherlands are not so familiair with the name Truffles.

At our centre we only use the Mushrooms, never do we work with Ayahuasca or other plant medicines.  Because Ayahuasca has gotten a lot of media attention in the last 10 years, many people ask us what is the difference or simularity with Mushrooms. Well, the DMT (in Ayahuasca) and psilocin (in Truffles) are similar molecules. Both are closely related to our bodies own serotonin and function similarly. There are a lot of similarities, but every mind expanding substance has its own character. Mushrooms/Truffles are, in contrast to Ayahuasca, very mild for the body, the physical detox (vomiting/diarrhea) is much less with Magic Mushrooms than with Ayahuasca. The Mushrooms generally have a more playful and extravert nature, as for Ayahuasca you can expect a more introvert journey.

First of all, Magic Mushrooms are non-toxic to the body and there is no reason to believe you can get addicted. If taken with the right intentions, in a good physical and emotional state of being, you are on the safe side. Be aware that joining this ceremony requires a tremendous amount of trust, you might going to be crazy vulnerable. If you have any doubts about yourself, always mention it in the reservation form. You can expect us to treat you with care and respect, with a high degree of transparency. We are aware of the importance of education and safety.

The centre has facilitated ceremony for thousands of people since 2006, collaborating with keepers of ancestral knowledge. We have integrated different teacher plant traditions and blended it with our own European roots. We have used this experience to finetune a balance between indigenous traditions, modern Western culture and scientific knowledge. This gives our organisation a strong foundation of professional standards, safety protocols and ethics.

On an empty stomach the Mushrooms will usually start to work within half an hour. Initially your body can feel a bit restless, this is when the medicine, which is what we call the little mushrooms, are scanning your body. This feeling generally fades as soon as you have surrendered to the experience. The intensity of the experience comes and goes in waves and continues to do so for about 4 to 6 hours. Some people can experience some nausea in which case deep belly breathing, movement or relaxing tend to ease the feeling of nausea. Further you can experience visions, emotions and insights. Don’t be surprised if radical shifts start occurring in your life.

The psychedelic experience can make you feel all ‘four seasons in one day’, with moments of pure consciousness, intense sadness or fear, gratefulness and absolute bliss. From personal experience we know that it can become quite challenging for a person as fears may arise, but often this is where the self-healing takes off. The Earth Awareness team encourages people to surrender to, or work with the energy that moves through you. We will be there for meeting your needs, before, after and during the ceremony.
The dosage we serve to each individual is personal, depending on anxiety and guardedness, personality type and intentions, body size, 1:1 conversations and many other elements that influence the experience. We serve fresh Magic Truffles, ready to eat. They are quite tasty, a bit like nuts.. The mushrooms are included, you don’t have to bring your own.

The ceremony takes place in the Nature Temple, where the sacred fire is burning in the center. The Temple has an inner circle around the fire and an outer circle, where you can make a comfortable space for relaxation. During the night you stay mostly inside, but it is okay to take some minutes to absorb the nature vibes in our magnificent night-garden, when you are longing for that.

A ceremony is a marking point in time. It is an ancient way of setting the space for conscious transformation, it creates safety and clarity. For thousands of years wisdom-keepers from all over the world are using psychedelics for healing and vision with undeniable results. Here in the West, the spiritual use of these compounds is rather new and is often used in a more therapeutic setting. Although both ways have their own qualities, we strongly believe that the Western approach only, is not sufficient enough to activate the whole spectrum of potential.

In ceremony there is the possibility to be present, to express, to be alive and really work with the energies that move through you. Now you can opt to eat a higher dosage of psilocybin mushrooms and connect with the shamanic way of using the mushrooms. Although your journey is still a personal one, this ceremony has a higher level of togetherness. During the night the facilitators will balance the energies with a multitude of instruments and their profound musical skills. These ceremonies are dynamic and alive, with beautiful acoustic music, sensitive songs and powerful chants, silence and sincere sharing around the fireplace. We hold space with a clear ceremonial structure that leaves room for a playful, open minded and intuitive course, you are invited to contribute.

Our ceremonies and retreats are meant for people in good mental and physical health. It is not offered as a substitute for medical or psycho-therapeutic care. Magic Mushrooms cannot be taken in combination with anti-depressive or anti-psychotic medication. If you are under these or other kind of medication or doctor treatments you are required to consult your doctor to ask if you can participate in the ceremonies with psilocybin. You always need to inform Earth Awareness about your medical or psychological treatment.

Although a life does not always feel perfect and nobody’s life is without challenges, we draw a line where it comes to people who are heavy traumatized, have a tendency to be suicidal or psychotic.

This is a very common feeling almost everyone, to a greater or lesser extent, will experience. In most cases it’s a sign that the ceremony is already starting to work, and you’re getting out of your comfort zone. A journey with the use of mind expanding substances is like a jump in the unknown, no one can predict what you will experience. This can cause a natural sense of tension and calls for the practice of trust. It’s only when you realize you don’t know, where real learning begins, where possibilities open up, where wisdom stems from.

We do not Judge combining substances, but it is not allowed during this ceremony or retreat. We trust you come sober and agree to stick to the way we offer the ceremony.
