Our JOUrnaL

We’ve compiled a selection of articles about psychedelics – specifically regarding psychedelic truffles containing natural psilocybin. Dive into their history, read about recent scientific findings, and learn to apply them with care and intention.



You have arrived here as a result of a series of journeys. One leading to another.

Every journey has changed you. Some perhaps a lot, some ever so slightly. The intuitive notion that your journey has not come to conclusion has brought you here. On the brink of a new path of exploration.

As this journey may unfold somewhat differently than any travels you’ve made before, we’ve written a few brief articles to help you make an educated choice on whether or not psychedelics are for you and to help you determine the right time.

You’ll get an insight into how psychedelics work, practical tips on preparing mind and body, creating a beneficial set and setting, and integrating your insights into your daily life.

We wish you wonderful journeys worth remembering.
