Psychedelic Soundjourney

On this unique event we combine the power of sound with the ancient healing properties of cacao & magic truffles. We mix LIVE music with electronic soundscapes, sound effects and solfeggio frequencies. This beautifully powerful blend, supported by the plant-medicine, will take you on a journey through wonderland into the deep waters of your soul.
Every Psychedelic Soundjourney will be different. This time we take you on a captivating journey down the river Ganges in India. As we all know India, with it’s ancient mystical traditions is a country of unity in diversity. Music from these regions is meant to inspire pure emotion in the minds of those who listen. The intricate melodies, mesmerising rhythms, and evocative scales intertwine to create an enchanting world. Some of the most powerful mantras originated here. The soundjourney will be inspired by the beauty of this country.
Expect the unexpected.
Come for the experience.
Invite the present moment.
⍙ About the soundjourney:
Soundhealing synchronises brain waves to achieve profound states of relaxation, helping to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of the cells in our bodies. In this ceremony we will start the evening in a circle to share our intentions and to receive the ceremonial cacao and a microdose of magic truffles. After a grounding meditation you will be invited to lay down and relax. Pleuni will guide you through this cosmic symphony of soundwaves with her voice and a variety of instruments while Yorick supports her with mesmerising ambient soundscapes and drones.
This is a total sensory experience that will take you on a journey to realign and retune your whole body, mind and soul.

During the session, the only thing you need to do is lay down and relax. Your body temperature can drop because we are laying down for quite a while, so make sure to wear something comfy and warm.

⏀ About Cacao
Cacao opens the heart and allows for a deeper, authentic love based connection with yourself, others, the earth and all of life. Theobroma Cacao, (Latin for ‘Food of the Gods’), has been used for centuries in spiritual practices and rituals. Cacao contains many beneficial minerals. It is really high in magnesium and chromium. It also contains a high amount of calcium, zinc, iron and sulfer. Another amazing fact: it makes us happy. Cacao contains neurotransmitters already present in the brain such as:
~ Norepinephrine (joy)
~ Serotonin (wellbeing)
~ Dopamine (motivation, pleasure)
~ Anandamide (bliss, painkiller)
The ceremonial cacao that I use in my ceremonies comes from Nicaragua and is ethically sourced. To protect all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are naturally in cacao, it is NOT heat-treated and processed like cocoa or chocolate, and nutritional benefits aren’t reduced.
⏃ About Microdosing
A microdose is about 1/10 of a full trip dosis, and therefore has a very subtle effect. It doesn’t come close to the psychedelic effects of a ‘normal’ dosis. The aim here is to help you fully experience everything that is alive in you, so you are able to process. Rather than mind-altering, the effects of Microdosing are best described as mind enhancing. There have been numerous studies utilising psychedelics like psilocybin (the psychoactive ingredient in hallucinogenic mushrooms and truffles) and they have shown that it has positive effects on depression and anxiety. Every person responds different to psychedelics, but there is a high change you will experience some of the following: It may give you positive energy, increase your levels of creativity, promote deeper connection with other people, get you in touch with some of your (suppressed) emotions and your higher self, heighten your senses and/or give you certain insights. The microdose that will be offered to you during this event contains between 1 and 2 grams of fresh truffles. You will be free to choose in the moment the amount that calls you most, because it’s important you feel comfortable.
If you have questions about microdosing, please don’t hesitate to drop me a message.
