Microdosing, Yin Yoga & Cacao ceremony with Merel
Microdosing, Yin Yoga & Cacao
During this Ceremony we combine a long relaxing Yin Yoga session with a microdose of psilocybin (magic truffels) and ceremonial cacao. This will support you to connect more deeply with yourself, help you open your path and further embody your true nature.
Welcome + short sharing circle
Magic cacao ceremony + mantra singing
Long yin yoga session
Microdosing is a very safe way to support our body and mind to release old patterns, reconnect with ourself on a deeper level and create new, healthier habits. Psilocybin (the active molecule in magic truffles) has been used for spiritual growth in native traditions for thousands of years. When we take a microdose, the intention is not to ‘trip’, as the effect of the microdose is barely noticeable by the conscious mind. Rather, the microdose helps us to dive just a little deeper into ourself and supports the integration of our inner wisdom into our daily lives.
Cacao has also been used for thousands of years by native peoples as a sacred medicine and has been called “the food of the Gods”. It opens our veins and works as a tonic for our heart, while uplifting our mood. Cacao is a very subtle yet powerful medicine plant and works beautifully together with the psilocybin, enhancing its mind-opening effect.
About Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga is a relaxing form of yoga, based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and the ancient yoga practice of India. We lie down or sit in poses for a longer period of time (5 to 10 minutes) and relax the body. This way, we sink deep into our connective tissues and meridians, which run throughout the body and are connected with all the organs. Yin Yoga helps the body to release tension and brings harmony to our inner landscape.
