WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST TRIP
Ceremonies are a full day experience, usually with its most intensity being around 5-8 hours long. It is best to have as little in your stomach as possible that morning. A light breakfast of fruit, and egg with coffee would be perfectly acceptable. Once in the ceremony space, we will connect, go over your intentions, feelings and answer any left questions. Together we will ground into the space and the medicine will be consumed. The medicine is taken in a cacao drink mixture. It is a common side effect of mushrooms that stomach distress occurs. This is extremely normal, and usually passes within the first hour. The cacao drink has been very successful in decreasing the amount of stomach unease, but it is still worth noting. Once consumed, talking, breathing or taking a short walk can help ground in the experience. Once the effects begin to set in, I will suggest that you lie back, and close your eyes as the journey unfolds. This portion is usually around 3 hours. You will be able to get up, use the bathroom, and drink water as needed. I will be close by at all moments to offer support, directions, ask and answer questions as appropriate. You will not be left one for the entirety of our session. Once the journey is done peaking, you will feel a gentle come down. At this time I will offer your fresh food and snacks. The come down process is usually very gentle and will take the entry of the day.
