Both Psilohuasca and Ayahuasca consist of two components.

Ayahuasca has been used by indigenous tribes in the Amazon for thousands of years by local healers, maestro curanderos, or Onayas (loosely translated as medicine man/woman or shaman). In the countries of the Amazon region, these plant components are considered legal plant medicines due to their healing properties; "plant medicine."

In the Netherlands, however, traditional Ayahuasca brew is not recognized by the government as a 'plant medicine,' as its main component DMT (the psychoactive substance dimethyltryptamine) falls under the Opium Act. Therefore, manufacturing, distributing, and consuming it is not permitted under Dutch law. Drinking the brew is entirely at your own risk.

Psilohuasca contains the psychoactive substance psilocybin, which is allowed by Dutch law. At the time of writing, various institutions and universities are conducting scientific and clinical research on the effects of psilocybin combined with therapeutic treatments.

We do not encourage the use of Ayahuasca, Psilohuasca, or other plant medicines. The prerequisite for working with us is having already done a lot of inner work and spiritual development. Additionally, there must be a clear calling or a sense of working with oneself using plant medicines. There is no obligation to work with plant medicines; participation is entirely voluntary.

We are neither for nor against taking entheogenic substances without guidance. However, from both a shamanic and therapeutic perspective, We will never encourage or promote this. Not to take entheogenic substances and certainly not to work with plant medicines in a home setting without guidance.

Entheogenic substances are not suitable for everyone. In many cases, desired goals and personal desires can be achieved in other ways, and we provide information on this as asked. Our services focus on providing honest and impartial information beforehand - including therapeutic alternatives, such as systemic work, and whether the setting we work in is right for someone - and on integrating experiences afterward.

Integration of an inner journey with entheogenic substances, in our view, is linked to the decision to embark on an inner journey. (This perspective applies to participation in all sacred circles where consciousness is worked with.) This implies that preparation, participation, as well as grounding, anchoring insights, and other observations are all part of 'the integration.' Our integration programs support the entire integration process from preparation to anchoring.

There is currently a trend where more and more people are using entheogenic substances. However, often this is done without a clear understanding of what they are embarking on, what an inner journey can be like, and how to process the experience. Integration of the experience is important to integrate the insights and lessons into this earthly reality. Tools and support are necessary to translate symbolism, ground insights and lessons, and effect desired changes.

Not being fully aware of what to expect, the inner journey itself, and the process after the inner journey often results in, at best, not achieving one's goal and therefore not affecting the desired changes in one's life. At worst, one may end up with depressive feelings, feeling confused and worse off than before working with entheogenic substances, which they cannot understand.

We do not brew and serve Ayahuasca with DMT in the Netherlands.
