The Alchemical Offering
∞ DIVINE MEDICINE - Whether you know it or not, this Bufo Alvarius 5-MeO-DMT Initiation is about connecting to your deeper self and becoming aware of what it is to live a conscious loving life. It doesn’t mean that you have to live a completely different life, but this experience can Awaken you to aspects of your reality that were previously hidden.
In sacred ceremony, the 5-MeO-DMT from Toad venom from the Sonoran Desert can awaken and inform you of the total knowledge available within you. Amongst those who have partaken in this initiation there is often reference to a total reset. This is most significantly a holistic reset that allows for a deep release of destructive emotional & mental patterns, as well as an influx of life force that is both inspirational & transformative.
The medicine experience is a blessing, one that increases a sense of peace, personal integrity, and a bigger capacity for love and acceptance. It is also one of the most intense, rewarding, and otherworldly experiences you can have.Therefore, the approach to this medicine is a synergy of the best of two worlds, one where wisdom tradition is honoured and the other where counselling and integration are an intricate part of the total experience.
∞ EARTH MEDICINE - You are invite to connect with the totality of you with the Spirit of Psilocybin. Psilocybin is the Entheogen that we can work with during our 5-day set-up. Psilocybin is the substance found in magic Mushrooms and Truffles that have show to support your on going growth and healing.
Their impact on culture has literally spanned human history. From the earliest cave paintings, shamanic traditions to modern religion, these fungi have helped to shape parts of our consciousness. Magic mushrooms and Psilocybin Truffles are non-toxic and have even been found to encourage neurogenesis (the growth of new brain cells.) We are inviting you to an opportunity to expose you to the wonders of this medicine as an assistant to your life journey and as a tool for the exploration of your Soul, Body, and Mind.
∞ HEART MEDICINE - We work with the spirit of Sacred Cacao in our integration setting. This medicine is one of the most powerful, gentle facilitators, teachers and guides on the planet. Cacao opens the heart and allows for a deeper, authentic love-based connection with yourself, others, the world and all of life.
You will experience a Cacao ceremony that is specifically designed for psychedelic sharing and integration work. This journey is specifically focused to help you find clarity, and process some of the more confusing aspects of your experiences. Cacao is the perfect medicine to dive deep and integrate, while remaining fully conscious and aware.
∞ BREATH MEDICINE - Breath-Therapy such as Transformational, Holotropic or Circular Breathing, is a very deep therapeutic technique, in which one through accelerated and deepened breathing with an open mouth while lying down can reach access to his subconsciousness as well as enter into higher states of consciousness.
During a breath session all levels of our being are addressed. On the physical and mental level it is a deep cleansing process. Emotions and body sensations can arise that are associated with unprocessed experiences and old traumas, which are stored in the muscles and in the cell consciousness and can be integrated and cured through the breathing. On a spiritual level one can open oneself to a transpersonal experience, perceive oneself as a spiritual being and receive deep insights into its human potential.
∞ SACRED SOUND MEDICINE - In the realm of healing techniques, sound work inhabits a curious space: It has been used for thousands of years—think of overtone chanting from Central Asia, for example—yet, it’s also one the frontiers of modern neuroscience. In shamanic traditions, perhaps the original form of energetic medicine, the commondenominator is drumming, chanting or singing. Often, the shaman has received the gift of shamanic chants, or songs through meditations, dreams or encounters with powerful animals and spirits. There are many forms of sound and song being a part of this setting, Ikaro and Soulsong are important pillars to your healing journey with us.
∞ EMBODIMENT MEDICINE - To help open your body to explore, integrate and express the masculine and feminine aspects of yourself, we will use Yoga, Qigong and/or 5Rhythms®. You are going to explore the areas of the body beyond the rigidity of daily movement and through this depth can create new pathways for energy (prana) to move through us and helps to release tension and memory from the body.
With the 5Rhythms, we are invited to allow the wisdom of our bodies in motion to bless us with a wave of creative freedom, while dancing out what moves in. The 5Rhythms are states of Being. They are markers on the way back to a real self, a vulnerable, wild passionate, instinctive self. To dive in a Wave of 5 Rhythms is like experiencing a direct connection with our inner most Elements, as if we were listening the echoes of our own story, from the source of who we are.
