MDMA group sessions

The MDMA ceremony

In the MDMA ceremonies that we organize, you participate as one of a maximum of five participants. You prepare for this session individually, working with the personal advice we give you. On the day of the ceremony, we are a group for the first period of about one to two hours and you can talk about yourself and the goals you have. As soon as the MDMA (analogue) starts to take effect (45 minutes after ingestion) we use a silent phase of 2 to 3 hours during which the music takes you on a loving introspective journey. After this phase we switch to connection again and there is room to share the experience and feelings with the group and/or the supervisors.

The role of music

Music plays an important role during the MDMA sessions. Just like with the psilocybin and LSD sessions, the MDMA ceremony creates space to turn inward. We call this the introspective phase and we also motivate everyone to use this during MDMA group sessions for about two to three hours. During the MDMA ceremony, you will be guided mainly by the music during the introspection to places in your memory, thoughts and especially with positive feelings/emotions. For most people it is a loving journey inward.

The positive effects of the MDMA ceremony

The first effects occur approximately 45 minutes after taking the MDMA analogue we offer. In this first phase you may feel some resistance to the effects of MDMA and this can manifest itself in shakiness and perceived temperature fluctuations. After habituation, the positive effects arise, which are mainly characterized by positive feelings and connectedness. The effects below are the most valuable for these sessions.

Improvement of mood

Feelings of happiness, euphoria and satisfaction are relatively common when using MDMA. If you start talking about your trauma or the triggers of your PTSD during this phase of satisfaction, the brain stores it in a different way. It might be a bit crazy for the brain. You feel satisfied and safe while talking about your trauma. You can also be gently exposed to your anxiety triggers while you are in that safe state. The brain will eventually connect the triggers with the positive state you find yourself in. Exposure therapy works very well under the influence of MDMA as the triggers no longer immediately result in an anxious state.

Less ego

With a reduced sense of self, the topics seem more connected because you are less likely to have to distinguish between yourself and the world around you. In this state it may seem as if it is about someone other than yourself. From these thoughts there is room for honest self-reflection without the well-known emotional blockage. It therefore ensures openness and that can have a great advantage for processing the past, but also for conversation therapy, self-examination and personal growth.

Increased empathy

Releasing trauma sometimes also includes forgiveness of the perpetrator and victim. The victim must forgive themselves for the situation they were in and this also requires empathy for yourself. Forgiving the perpetrator can also help with the process. The greater empathy for the perpetrator without the self-protection of the ego often makes forgiveness an easier process.

New insights

When using most psychedelics, the brain works in a different way than you are used to. New insights and connections can be discovered. Of course, it is impossible to predict in advance how this will proceed. An additional advantage of these types of sessions is that curiosity is rewarded and people often remain curious about themselves, others and the world long after the session.
