Passionflower Truffle ceremony
Passionflower and psilocybin combination is a fascinating blend that offers extraordinary benefits to those seeking relaxation and anxiety relief. Passionflower is a natural herbal supplement that has been known to have calming effects, and when combined with psilocybin, the active ingredient found in magic mushrooms and truffles, they create a powerful mixture known as psiloflora. This combination delivers a synergistic effect that enhances the benefits of both. While psilocybin is recognized for its hallucination effects which causes perception to change, the mix of psilocybin and passionflower can create a feeling of profound relaxation. The resulting synergy helps to elevate mood, create introspection and contemplation while simultaneously increasing the sense of well-being.
Passionflower and it's origin
Passionflower (passiflora incarnata) is a perennial vine native to North and South America. Its history of use dates back centuries, with the indigenous peoples of Central and South America using it as a medicinal herb to treat a range of ailments including anxiety, insomnia, and pain relief.
The plant was later introduced to Europe by Spanish explorers in the 16th century. There, it was extensively cultivated as an ornamental plant due to its strikingly beautiful flowers and not so much for the healing properties.
During the 19th century, passionflower gained popularity in the field of herbal medicine mainly due to its calming properties. It was also used as a treatment for epilepsy, hysteria, and nervous disorders. In the present day, passionflower is widely recognized for its calming and relaxing effects, and is often included in herbal supplements as a natural remedy for anxiety, stress, and insomnia.
The active ingredients of passionflower
Passiflora incarnata mainly contains flavonoids, alkaloids, glycosides, phenols, essential oils, carbohydrates, and GABA. The most important for the Passionflower truffle ceremony are the psychoactive elements of the plant. We’ve listed these compounds here.
Passionflower contains several molecules, including harmine, harmaline, and harmalol, which have MAOI (Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitor) activity. These molecules prevent the breakdown of monoamine neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline, which may lead to an increase in the levels of these neurotransmitters in the brain. MAO is an enzyme responsible for breaking down monoamine neurotransmitters, and by inhibiting this enzyme, MAOI can delay the degradation of these neurotransmitters, leading to their increased levels in the brain. This can result in mild sedative effects, relaxation, and improved mood. Besides slowing down the breakdown of these neurotransmitters, MAOI also prevents the breakdown of psilocybin and psilocin from magic truffles, resulting in a longer and stronger trip. Compared to other MAOi, the ones found in passionflower are safer to use beacuse these MAOIs are reversible and selective for MAO-A, which means they do not bind permanently to the enzyme and they do not affect MAO-B, which is responsible for breaking down tyramine. Tyramine is a substance found in some foods, such as cheese, wine, and cured meats, that can cause a dangerous rise in blood pressure if it accumulates in the body due to MAO inhibition.
One of the key active ingredients in passionflower is a compound called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA is known to have calming and relaxing effects on the brain and nervous system.In addition to helping to promote relaxation, GABA also plays an important role in regulating mood and cognitive function. The Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) mentioned in this article are also helping to increase GABA by preventing the breakdown of neurotransmitters like GABA in the brain. GABA can decrease the activity of psilocybin but the increased effect caused by MAOi is stronger making it the trip stronger with more calmness.
Passionflower is not for everybody
Magic truffle ceremony explained
During our magic truffle ceremonies, we will do our best to enhance the effects of psilocybin magic truffles by adding other plants, such as passionflower, blue lotus, and cacao. The structure of the truffle ceremony, including the timing of these natural additions, can be found below. It is important to know that not everyone can make use of psilocybin truffles and/or the additions we provide, and it is crucial to check for safety. Before booking a truffle ceremony, an online intake form should be completed. We will check it for contraindications and use it as a base for your personal preparation for the truffle ceremony.

After attending a truffle ceremony, some people want to share their stories while others prefer to keep it private. For those who wish to share, we conduct a round of sharing the story of the truffle ceremony.
Days or weeks after a truffle ceremony, the need for an integration talk can arise. You can chat with us on WhatsApp or give us a call in case you need more attention.
On the day of the Truffle ceremony
The magical truffle ceremony is an experience like no other. It’s a journey through different phases that can take you to new heights of consciousness and spiritual awakening. As such, it’s important to understand the timing of the day to fully appreciate and participate in this unique experience. After arrival, we take some time to adjust, and we commence the ceremony according to the schedule below.
Approximately 15 minutes before the official start time, we’ll open the doors, and we expect everybody to walk in no later than 30 minutes after the starting time.
The first drink that we offer is the warm cacao drink. It’s optional, but it can enhance your truffle ceremony. For more information, visit our website: Cacao Truffle Ceremony.
We’ll take some time to listen to the plants and think about our intentions for the magic truffle ceremony.
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.
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.
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.
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.
After dinner, those who want to share their journey and findings can participate in our sharing circle. We only ask that you share what you want, so it’s okay to keep it private or take more time to process.
After the sharing circle, we’ll end the ceremony. Those who want to go home are free to do so. Please be aware that driving is usually only possible the next day. In case you want or need to stay over, it’s possible to do so.
During the morning after the ceremony, we will have breakfast ready for you. For those who want to have a conversation, we will be available for you during this morning. For the ones who decided to leave early, we can arrange a phone call a few days later.
