Blue lotus Truffle ceremony

Blue lotus is a plant that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine and spiritual practice. When taken in conjunction with truffles, blue lotus can help create a relaxed and dreamy state that allows for a more profound spiritual experience.

Blue lotus contains a compound called aporphine, which has been shown to have sedative properties. This compound can help calm the mind, reduce anxiety, and promote feelings of relaxation. When combined with the psychoactive effects of truffles, blue lotus can help create a gentle and introspective state that allows for deep spiritual exploration.

Additionally, blue lotus has been known to enhance lucid dreaming, which can be beneficial for those who wish to explore their subconscious during a truffle ceremony. The dreamy state induced by blue lotus can encourage visionary experiences and heightened sensory perception, allowing participants to delve deeper into their spiritual journey.

Blue lotus and it's origin

The history of blue lotus dates back to the ancient civilization of Egypt around 4,000 years ago. The blue lotus was treasured by the people of this region, not only for its aesthetic beauty but also for its profound cultural significance. The Egyptians treated this plant as a sacred sacrament with properties that were both spiritual and medicinal. It was widely known for its ability to induce a state of calm and relaxation, making it a commonly used substance during religious ceremonies. The blue lotus was so integral to Egyptian culture that it was often depicted in their art and served as a symbol of renewal and rebirth. It is fascinating to observe how the ancient Egyptian people valued the benefits of this plant, both spiritually and in terms of its effect on mental health. To celebrate this, the Egyptians already used the blue lotus during their own blue lotus ceremonies.

The active ingredients of Blue Lotus

Blue lotus flowers are known for containing active ingredients, some of the most notable of which are psychoactive compounds and flavonoids. These potent molecules work in a variety of ways to provide an array of potential health benefits and therapeutic uses.We’ve compiled a list of the most noteworthy.


Blue Lotus contains various flavonoids, including kaempferol and quercetin. Flavonoids are known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and may contribute to the plant’s medicinal effects.


Nupharine has been identified as a bioactive compound with antimicrobial properties and has the ability to inhibit the growth or kill microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, or viruses.


Nuciferine is one of the primary active compounds found in Blue Lotus. It is known for its psychoactive effects and has been reported to have sedative and antispasmodic properties.

Other alkaloids

Blue Lotus contains several aporphine alkaloids, including apomorphine and nornuciferine. These compounds are known for their potential dopamine receptor agonist activity, which may contribute to their psychoactive effects.

Dopamine and Blue Lotus

Aporphine alkaloids, that are present in the blue lotus flower, are a class of compounds that can interact with various neurotransmitter systems in the brain, including dopamine receptors. These alkaloids can act as agonists, meaning they bind to and activate specific receptors in the brain. The interaction with dopamine receptors may influence the release and regulation of dopamine, a neurotransmitter involved in mood, perception, and cognition. This modulation of the dopamine system could potentially lead to alterations in sensory perception, including hallucinations. The psychoactive effects of Blue Lotus are generally mild and relaxing, rather than inducing strong hallucinations. However, in combination with magic truffles, it can synergistically enhance their effects.

Contraindications Blue Lotus

Despite the potential benefits of blue lotus during a blue lotus truffle ceremony, there are certain groups who should avoid using blue lotus or any related products containing its extracts. The main contraindications for blue lotus include:

1. Pregnancy and breastfeeding – As little is known about the effects of blue lotus on infants and fetuses, it is best to avoid using it during this time.

2. Allergies – People who are allergic to blue lotus or any of its families (Nymphaeaceae) should not use it.

3. Psychoactive medication – The sedative properties of blue lotus can interact with some prescribed or over-the-counter medication for mental illness. Since blue lotus also interacts with dopamine, all dopaminergic medication is a contraindication.

4. Liver and kidney disease – Blue lotus is known to interact adversely with some medications that treat these diseases.

Sharing intentions or goals

For the participants who want to share their goals and intentions, we will conduct a round of sharing. Sometimes, the group’s theme can also be used to explain what we want to achieve.

Starting the truffle ceremony

During the beginning of the magic truffle phase of the ceremony, we will tell you what to expect, how to handle the effects, and what to do during the ceremony. After 15 minutes, the first effects can arise, and the experience can still be shared with others during this time.

Long introspection

After 45 minutes from the first dose of magic truffles, we will offer a second round as a booster. After the second round, we will let the truffles do their magic and go for the inner journey. Speaking is prohibited unless it is necessary to feel safe. During the unspoken phase, the music will serve as a guide during this 3-5 hour introspection.

Coming down

During the “coming down,” the need to move, talk, or eat may return. In case you are hungry, we can offer you some food while others gradually regain normal consciousness.


After the effects of the psilocybin truffles wear off, we’ll make a healthy dinner with naturel foods that help you recover the used minerals and energy.
