LOREM IPSUM SIT
After searching for a while for a good place to try 5-MEO-DMT for the first time I came a cross Oliver's website and got intrigued by his approach to the sessions. After some (screening)emails back and foreward a few weeks later the session was planned. Oliver is an interested, interesting and likeble guy who has a lot of knowledge about psychadelics. We took a great walk in the beautiful nearby forrest which was nice to get to know each other, build trust, share stories and relax before the actual experience. This was done in the comfort of Oliver's nice living room, in darkness with very light music. Oliver takes great care in explaining and making sure about safety and letting you have the best possible experience without unnecessary interfering. The experience itself was very beautiful and peacefully calm. After slowly coming back to this reality we had a very nice lunch and Oliver shared more wisdom on the psychadelic mind. The visit to his 8 ped toads was also very nice, cool to finally see them life after hearing so much about them. Thank you for the great experience, highly recommended !!

My highest recommendation and thanks to Olli, one of the great treasures in this present time and space.  You will know at first communication that what Olli offers is not his Job, but rather his Passion to help those who wish to experience.  The set and setting of my session could not have been more safe, warm and welcoming.  Olli pays extreme attention to detail and quality in every aspect, then soaks it all in layer upon layer of LOVE.  Even after a relatively short time spent together I felt our friendship and bond quickly grow rich and deep.  I learned several new key ways to view the world, many of which came up just in simple conversation.  Olli has vast experience and many valuable lessons learned that he openly shared in a loving and trusting way.  I look forward to continuing to live this life, now with some new perspectives on truly what does and does not matter in the grand scheme of things.  Much LOVE to Olli and his family - I look forward to our next meeting here and beyond!
J.G. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session September 2019)
I simply could not have wished for a better person than Olli to be my guide through this experience. Professional is a strange word to use given what you are entering into. But Olli does the job of being your guide and tandem jumper with utter care, empathy, consideration and safety. From the screening to the preparation to the experience. He could write a book on scene and setting all the while knowing that what you enter into cannot be prepared for. Finally I want to use the word professional because if I start talking about the LOVE that Olli brings to the experience then he will have no website because I won’t stop writing. They don’t make many like Olli. And if some how you stumble upon his site. Then you are as lucky as I was.
F.M./B.J./C.T. (5MeO DMT 1:3 Session July 2019)
I dont think I can improve on what F. has said...I'm also very grateful that you enabled this thing for me/us and shared in it. It is totally inconceivable to me that it could have been done without you - so really thank you Ollie. It's clear that our trip - to see you and to meet the Toad was about sharing and you led the way on that...
F.M./B.J./C.T. (5MeO DMT 1:3 Session July 2019)
First off I second what F. wrote, couldn't have said it any better...I am chuffed to bits to have had this experience. It will take some digesting as they say, or some purging, depending on the individual, but it was one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life and I can't imagine having done it with anyone more generous and loving...
F.M./B.J./C.T. (5MeO DMT 1:3 Session July 2019)
I have found that Olli takes utmost care in all parts of the delicate process of administering intense doses of life-altering substances to people. The selection process is loving yet rigorous and his guidance is full of genuine empathy, while at the same time he remains professional and trustworthy. I really felt in safe hands during this experience. The quality of his products is superb. Everything is grown, sourced or harvested with attention, deep knowledge and a degree of personal connection that is really exceptional. After the experience, he remained mindful of my well being and even emailed me a few days after the trip to ask me how I felt. I thoroughly recommend his care and expertise.
T.M.-K. (5MeO DMT 1:2 Session July 2019)
If you, like me, are trying psychedelics for the first time, it is likely you will be concerned about the quality of the product, experience of the sitter, nature of the setting, and, well, many other things. Let me reassure you - Olli is as prepared and genuine as it seems. Yes, he is dependable, organized, and has perfected the process. But, more importantly, he is genuine, warm and sensitive, and will make you feel at home. His product is of high (obsessive) quality, he will open his home to you and the care is real. And, on top of all that, he will let you have your own experience - neither intruding, nor suggesting, nor trying to shape. Simply being there to witness and help. Take the plunge.
D. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session July 2019)
I thank Olli for accepting and trusting me in his home. I can't even properly begin to describe what it did for me. Of course the experience from the drug itself was very intense and amazing, which you can know more about if you search; but this experience being supported by someone as amazing and loving as Olli, added up a lot to the whole experience for me. He cares deeply about his clients, treats them with much love and would want to know about them as much as needed to be sure that they are ready for it. He creates a very loving and safe atmosphere which you are able to trust very fast. Even for me as an originally Iranian female who wouldn't easily trust others, especially after just knowing them for a few hours. His loving energy is true and you would be able to feel it. He would guide you trough it and make you feel like there is nothing to worry about, just let go and you will see how much it will open you up to the world around you. It has definitely changed my view to the world, even to the smallest details. I personally think that does't matter how experienced you are in using all kinds of things, this is not a drug you can do alone for the first time at the least and you would really need an environment that is safe and loving, because that is what is necessary for you not to be afraid and open up. I couldn't find many other places that do this and feel right at the same time. I am always thankful to him for his guidance and for offering me this opportunity to be able to change and heal myself this strongly.
F.S. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session June 2019)
I was insuch good hands and I felt I could trust Olli completely - he takes his mission very seriously and he knows what was is doing. Which is so important for the trip with the 5Meo to be safe and succesful, which it was in my case. I guess I was mentally ready and prepared by years of meditation and previous experience in psychedelics. I had what is called "the full blown experience". No screaming and rolling around on the ground like you can see with some people on Youtube, It doesn't have to be like that. So if you've seen these videos, don't let them pull you of. It is not easy to describe this kind of experience in a few word, But I instantly after inhaling the substance I simply leaned into the experience without resistance. Or I didn't actually DO it, it was just the way it happened. When consiousness started to come back I was just floating totally relaxed in a soft white light in a kind of an absolute state - the nothingness, or oneness. It was total bliss, very soft and very, very beautiful in an abstract kind of way. I use the memory of the experience when meditating. It works very well.
K.B. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session June 2019)
Like many, I was attracted to DMT over the last couple of years given the increasing popularity, testimonies, and the countless podcasts discussing its potential benefits. I first turned to the dark web and planned to make a trip (no pun intended) out of the experience, and try it all on my own. Now, I'm very glad that the plans I was making with some friends fell through, because having experienced 5meo with Ollie, in a very safe, comfortable, and trusting environment, I am convinced this is the only way to go--at least for the first time. In fact, the first thing that Ollie did was to address and detest the hype, and build realistic and honest expectations. So, once the plans didn't work out, I started searching for retreats where I could experience with people who know what they're doing, but mostly without the hustle of not going 'legit'. I have contacted many, many people in my search, so I can tell you confidently that Ollie's got the best approach out there. I first heard about him in various forums, and slowly pieced together that different posters with very positive experiences were talking about the same guy. So, here's my experience in a nutshell: I knew I was in good hands as soon as I heard back from Ollie. Rather than providing a few details like most other people / retreats I have reached out, Ollie really cares about you, which becomes very evident from the probing and the very professional set of questions designed to make sure you're really up for it, and for the 'right' reasons. I am quoting 'right' for reasons Ollie will explain to you himself, but let's just say it's more like not for the wrong reasons. By the time I was ready to pay him a visit, we already built some trust, and I really felt like I'm ready. Once I arrived at Ollie's place, we took the famous 1.5 hr walk in the nearby forest that felt more like 15mins. He clearly built on what we've already exchanged in the emails, showing great attention to the nuances, and understanding of where I'm coming from. It was more about building trust than explaining or lecturing, and by the end of it, I felt in safe, capable hands, and eager to DO IT. The rest is both personal and unique for everyone, but however it works out for you, there is no better person to guide you there.
D.M. & O.M. (5MeO DMT 1:2 Session May 2019)
I was impressed with Olli immediately because of his concern, asking for very personal details about my life up front. I was planning a pilgrimage in Europe. We had communicated several times via email since I live in North America. When I originally found Olli’s website, his detailed information, videos and testimonials helped assure me that he is the real deal. Once I met Olli in person I got how genuine he really is. He drove me to an old growth forest where we walked and talked and got to know each other for a couple of ours. It set the tone for the session and made the whole experience more meaningful. I decided at the forest I’m going to do exactly what this guy tells me to do.
When it came time for the session I knew he had my back and that he is a master at this work. His setting is amazing and comfortable and I knew it was as safe for me as possible. Before we started Olli was crystal clear and confident explaining his instructions as to what I might experience, how he would help if things got too intense, how it might feel reintegrating into my body and how best to draw the smoke from the pipe. Most important, was they way he said: ‘Remember, this is just an experience and no matter what, it’s going to be over in about ten minutes, just do nothing and relax”. He really did his best to set me up for success.
So, when my lungs were as full as I could get them and I released the pipe to him and laid back, all that preparation made it possible for the most profoundly beautiful experience of my life. Words are not remotely adequate for my gratitude for him and what he does. My experience with Olli was a true crescendo to my Pilgrimage, beyond anything imaginable. If I ever feel the need to do another 5MeO session I would likely fly another 13 hours to do it with Olli.
P.W. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session May 2019)
Olli is a genuine person that will make you feel at complete ease, like a friend. The word friend is not arbitrary here as it demonstrates a relationship built on trust. It takes someone with a lot of experience to drop the mentor role and just be with you as it is; not trying to interfere with your experience, letting you experience it fully and safely. As for the experience itself, keep an open mind. It’s different for everyone. It might even be different to you from one time to another.  I had a very pleasant time.
H.S. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session May 2019)
I cannot thank you enough for this session, which was really a revelation for me. All my questions about how consciousness, which we are, dreams this world into being, were answered. Off course now, returned to daily life, I cannot remember everything, just parts of what happened or was shown.
The thing I keep coming back to is the question you also asked several times: who are you? Who had this experience? Who had this revelation? Who is inside this body? But that is the part I do remember. There is no body, it is not an object. I experienced coming back into the body as a set of sensations and the densest parts came last, the bones and the teeth and I could feel that. Who feels that? It is amazing.
I remember when I first opened my eyes and saw you, you looked so familiar to me that I thought I knew you all my life. Which is probably true because we are one. The e mail contact prior to the session was very helpful, because I feel we really connected and that felt save and warm already before arriving at your place. Being invited to your home made me feel very welcome. The walk in the forest was a good preparation for the session. Because I don't smoke the vapo was the best tool. The overall feeling after the session was a total reset, reborn feeling of no longer being identified with the body and mind. The food afterwards was delicious and helped me ground.
A.P. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session May 2019)
This experience with you was really life transforming for me. I feel so peaceful now. Several times a day I have tears in my eyes just looking around me, it’s beautiful.  All my life I was a bit uncomfortable socially and now I feel so at ease :). I also aways had trouble focusing. I don’t have that problem anymore.  I remember during the experience when I started to panic, you were there for me. I was starting to think, "this is the biggest mistake of my life » and in what felt like just a few seconds I was completely relaxed. I find that amazing. Thanks to you I had the most life transforming experience of my life, so thank you so much!!
N.G. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session April 2019)
The 5 meo season with Oli was mature, deep and full of love, it was a great experience under a good caretaker with a felt mass of experience in the field, thank you Oli !
G.N. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session February 2019)
I smoked 5 Meo DMT. I started to feel that I am somewhere outside Earth world (in different dimension). Then I am a dot jumping around with a few thoughts. Olli told me about bad session. I am having bad session. Another thought - what I have done, I am crazy in Earth world after the session and fear occurs. I feel energy going through my arms. I lost my family, my life. Then I hear your voice: everything is Okay, just breath, music.. And then I am realizing that I am not a D. and it really doesn't matter what happens with D., and just releasing it, let it go. Then I am just inside (and I am) a wonderful Infinite world - no time, there is nothing and everything, pure love… And then I appear in body. First thoughts: D. is alive and not crazy, I love my mind and my life.
D.R. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session January 2019)
My dear Olli, thank you cannot adequately express my gratitude to you for the love, compassion, care and concern you have shown me, not only during our session, but since we first made contact. I never knew I had such wonderful brother here in Europe! Your heart is boundless and unconditional love pervades you. Thank you dear heart!
S.A. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session December 2018)
My girlfriend and I did a 5MeO DMT 1:2 Session with Olli. This experience was beautiful and unique and so much different than anything we could have imagined. When we arrived at Olli's place we were quite stressed about the upcoming experience. However, after meeting and walking with Olli we felt already much more relaxed. Indeed, we could feel all his love and genuine intention and that was very reasuring. After the experience, we had a delicious lunch with him. Once again his great vibes helped us make a smooth transition back into this reality. We will never forget the time spent together. With much love.
A and N (5MeO DMT 1:2 Session October 2018)
The prospect of traveling to a new country, to meet someone who I had never met before, to try psychedelics for the first time was, somewhat daunting. However, after spending some time chatting with Oli I can safely say that those worries soon dissolved. The setting in which ‘The Experience’ took place was relaxing, calming and reassuring. During the session, Oli was professional, caring, reassuring and loving. I could tell that Oli has lots of experience looking after people under the influence of psychedelics. As for ‘the experience’ itself…WOW. It’s not for me to describe but I all I can say is that if you are looking for a person and a place to guide you through your first psychedelic experience…you have found it! It is hard to express using words how grateful I am to Oli for doing what he does: ‘my'(haa ha) ‘life'(haha) has been changed forever. Thank you.
P. S. (5MeO Session September 2018)

In such encounter, there is a thin line between being friendlinessly welcoming and remaining professional so that the temporary relationship is based on grounded trust. And Olli walks perfectly along it. So that if you are looking for experiencing the Power of the Toad, and in the case that he accepts to administrate you the medicine, you can blindly surrender yourself to him. If the content of you experience is obviously not in his hands, you can be assured that for all the rest Everything will be handled with Love, Care, Attention, Open Heart and Comforting Presence.

As for me, I understood I had the chance to go through a ‘succesful experience’. I’m sure I won’t offend any of you by keeping the content of this experience in within me. I can just tell you that reaping all the fruits of it will take an extended period of time. The richness of this Eternally Short moment is yet to be dug out the Earth, little by little. I am thus grateful that Olli’s path and mine have crossed. At this cross section lies a moment ot Time that I can surely call: my Awakening. So, if you happen to feel the call, go to Olli and he’ll deliver the message in the most beautiful manner.

J.R. (5MeO DMT session August 2018)

The session with Olli was one of the most important experiences of my life.

Olli created an environment that enabled me to relax and fully release into the experience. Though I was slightly nervous leading up to the session, I felt completely at ease after spending the morning with Olli. His love, compassion, and understanding created a very safe atmosphere for this powerful experience.

It is difficult (nearly impossible) to articulate the toad experience itself. I will say that as I came back into my body, I have never felt such a profound feeling of thankfulness and gratitude for being alive. I can’t overstate how important this feeling was at the time, and how it now feels one week after the experience. I am seeing a beauty in my life, other people, and the world that I hadn’t noticed previously.

Thank you again Olli for creating a space for people to have profound experiences and (hopefully) share this with the rest of the world.

With love, thanks, and a heartfelt, long hug.

G. (5MeO DMT session August 2018)

Hey guys you don’t need to go to South America for a session. Olli is super cool, Long experience, spiritual approach! (Just don’t let yourself be too easily rejected 😉

It was for me the most beautiful and one of the most important experience s in my life. Once a handshake with god and back. I was rejoicing, crying and laughing. I didn’t know that human is capable of so much joy and happiness. This made it first time possibly for me to experience unity, I don’t have to believe it anymore, now I know it. And this is an ever flowing fountain of love.

Thank you Olli for creating this holy setting and for creating the Consciousness of respect for this “Rocket into eternity” I love you!!! (And your toads 😉

D. P. (5MeO DMT session June 2018)
My short time with Olli was one of the most important experiences of my life. I have had a number of powerful psychedelic experiences, but my experience with the sacred toad was far beyond even DMT experiences. It is definitely, definitely not recreational, and definitely not for everyone! Even with some experience, it pushed me to my limits. I had a very challenging trip, and I am forever grateful to Olli for his guidance and experience in helping integrate my trip. But they say challenging trips are the most beneficial! While other trips have given me a cool light show with beautiful visions, I feel they sometimes boosted my ego. I felt like I was becoming more and more spiritual. This was not the case with the toad - there were no visions, no ego, just overwhelming truth, beyond language and reality as we know it. Since then, almost a full year ago, I have not even thought about psychedelics, let alone taking them. The toad showed me my place is here in the present moment, not searching, not striving, just living. It showed me that I am experiencing a temporary human journey, that life and reality itself are manifestations of god, or source energy. Olli is a great teacher and a beautiful person, I would recommend his work to anyone! I knew I was in good company when he talked about Ram Dass and Neem Karoli Baba! Thank you for a great experience and wise words, Olli!
K.G. (5MeO DMT session Januar 2018)
As a solo female traveler with no prior experience with psychedelics, i was a bit hesitant but the desire to do the sacrament was stronger. However as soon as i met Olli, who is not a human but a human sized heart, who accepted me with his warmth and kindness , i felt so comfortable, there is no one in the world i would have gone to for this experience. There is not too much i can share about the experience itself; having pursued spiritual life for many years now, it gave me what i needed. Everyone’s experience is different, in my humble opinion the sacrament gives one not what they want but what they need it seems… I am endlessly grateful to Olli for everything, for doing this for all of us. Thank you Olli , when sending positive vibrations to the world, i will always remember you and you will always be a special person in my life.
L.M. (5MeO DMT session Januar 2018)

Only a couple of days have passed since we met but I am looking at the world so differently… People, trees, dogs, birds, grass… everything is so alive. It’s like my senses were blunt and now I can see. It’s not that I am enlightened or anything, but what I learned gave me not only perspective, but opened my eyes to what I was missing out. I learned many things during my 5meo DMT experience but two things are the most important to what I needed to learn.

1) God exists; we are all one; death is just a transition and love is the underlying force in the Universe.

2) There is no control.

The first bit is important because it let all fear go away and is the feel good part of the experience. But the juicy part comes with the second bit, the bit that made me scream like a madman such was the terror I experienced. The realisation that there is no control whatsoever is, what I believe, the key to live life to the fullest. During our walk, prior to the session, you told me many things that I resonated with, but at that time they were just words. Now I know that they are living things and that you were preparing me not for the experience but for the part where I go home and have to integrate it in my everyday life. One of the things that I lacked was gratitude. Gratitude towards life, towards others. Today I am no longer the same person and gratitude is the word that pops out when I think of what you did for me. You showed me the door, you guided me through path and you even took care of the aftermath in advance. What about that for worth?!!! Knowing that there is no control, I am becoming more gentle, easygoing and tasting life in ways that I never tasted before. If you ever find yourself in trouble, I am here for you. When I look at other people, my mind doesn’t let me see them as my true brothers and sisters, even if I know that is the case. In your case, I will always remember when I looked at you and saw myself and when love was the only force present in that room, in that Universe in miniature.

P.B. – private TOAD/5MEO DMT session, January 2018

I spent a day with Olli and 5MEO. It has been the most profound experience that I’ve had in my 28 years of life. In a matter of seconds, everything there is emmerged into one vortex while I became one with the universe. The ego death was beyond liberating. For the first time in my life, I could experience that there was nowhere to go, nowhere to rush; just a pure existence in unison with the universe, in unison with the breath of everyone and everything alive – just pure love, kindness and forgiveness. Before the Toad, I had been in a race with time in super busy London, now I can say I am one with time. It felt like I touched God.

Olli has developed a great structure to the whole day. By that special moment, I had a complete trust in him. I could hardly ever thank Olli enough for allowing me to experiece this moment. Also – to comment on something less abstract – the food Olli made was DELICIOUS!

V.P. (private Toad 1:1 December 2o17)
Thank you for your enthusiasm and caring. And for having the strangest job on the planet! It’s great that you’re giving people the opportunity to experience something so profound.
S.B. (private Toad 1:1 November 2o17)

Ollie’s compassion and knowledge was a deep comfort. I was unsure what exactly to expect before I tried 5-MeO-DMT. I was nervous and intrigued by other users’ accounts.

I now believe the most important thing when doing Entheogens is to be in the presence of someone who can create a safe space in which to experience such a profound, life altering substance. Ollie fulfils this role very wisely helping the experiencer to keep an open mind and creates an environment in which mother nature can teach.

There are no words for the experience itself and nor could there be. The less one goes into the encounter with preconceived ideas about what one will ‘see’ or ‘become’ the better. If you are going to use the sacred medicine, then I wish you all the love you deserve in your life.

Ben. (private Toad 1:1 November 2o17)

I’d love to write a lengthy review of the first couple of hours that I spent with you, but really, I don’t have much to say here – besides the fact that this was as perfect as it can be!The walk in the woods was an ideal way to convey a free, yet intimate, atmosphere. I don’t believe that I hold any deeply buried trauma, but still, I can definitely see the usefulness of such a slow-paced discussion! Back to your house, I must admit that I was a bit surprised to enter a regular family house, with bicycles in the garage, cat trees in the living room, etc. (yeah… beforehand, I was kinda picturing your place as small hut in the woods with shamanic utensils, flasks and artifacts hanging around. Silly, I know!). Any case, your place is lovely! It feels warm and cozy. Very safe indeed. Also, meeting the toads was very cool and quite unique! Even if we didn’t had much time because of my early departure, it was enough to build trust and confidence. From the very beginning, I knew that you where honest and responsible.

The trip: I was finally there, sitting in a unknown living room, in a country whose language I don’t even speak a word, about to fill my lungs with some poisonous toad slime. The stress was starting to build up. I knew that I was going to face some serious shit, but I only started to realize it now. False start. My belly was tight, my breath was short. We had to go for the vap. At this point I didn’t care much. Actually, it even gave me some more minutes to calm down. “Are you ready?” – “Yes”. I was not. But can you really be? You paused the music. I started to inhale. OK, now it’s done. I’ve made a choice, there’s no going back. I lied on the mat, still holding on the smoke. Oh wait, I forgot to ask him: “Should I release it nowwwwwwwwwwwww-“. Blank. No sound, no color, no touch, no feeling, no thought. The world had melted away and my corpse had vaporized. I could not feel my body, nor did I remember the distant feeling of being human. “Man, can a chemical even do that?”. I started to hear these typical insect/tribal DMT-like whispers as I plunged into oblivion. There was no visual, no crazy effects, no hallucination of any sort. I was still in the process of falling onto the mat. And still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still. Always closer, but never really there. “This is it, I’m dying”. Foolish me. If only it could be so easy. Existence was overwhelming, shocking, too abstract, too real. I couldn’t handle it… but then arose the most frightening realization I’ve ever had: I couldn’t let go either. Death was not an option, because I invented it. I was already gone. There was nowhere else to go. This was all there is. I couldn’t cry, I couldn’t laugh, I couldn’t hate, I couldn’t love, I couldn’t be, I couldn’t stop being. I couldn’t anything; nor did I could nothing. This is so terrifying, so petrifying. So dreadfully gorgeous. Heaven was hell and hell was heaven. Because infinite suffering equals infinite pleasure. I felt like I was sitting in a roller-coaster which would rip through all possible existence and non-existence in a split second. Then repeat twice faster. And twice faster. And twice faster. And twice. And twice. Twice. Twice. Twice. Twice-Twice-Twice-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T. Immediately, I would go through everything in zero time. Through none for eternity. It seemed like the whole universe was aware of the cosmic joke from the very beginning of time, only waiting for me to wake up and join it. “Just breathhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhheeee”. I heard the words but they had no meaning, and I can only reconstruct them now, in retrospect. I wanted to take in some air, but each breathing would suck the universe into itself and keep filling me for ever. Each fluctuation of my awareness would ripple into an infinite fractal of resonances. OK, I’ve seen it. How do I go back? Stop! “Help!” No, that’s silly. I want to stay. Wait. I don’t know. I just- (At this point, I suspect that I was starting to come back down, as I intuitively used an English word) Goddamnit, I have a head! I totally forgot that I could have a head. I can tilt it to the left. I can see a human face. And I can assign this face to someone I know. And I can think about myself thinking. “Wow, that was…”. Look, I can even talk! How I am supposed to do it already? I felt great. I remember hearing you chewing a gum. It was quite funny (“I have just been sliced into a trillion pieces and scattered through hyper-spacetime, and this dude was sitting here all the time, chewing a gum as if nothing happened”).

Now, these are just words. As you know, there is no way to really convey this type of experience with speech. Plus, I had read so much about the substance in the past that I cannot really tell how much of this story stems from my genuine experience vs. how much of it has been recreated by my mind post-integration. Overall, it went quite fast. The whole trip felts like 3-4 minutes long, so I may have forgotten some parts. The second 10mg trip felt even shorter: like 30 seconds. I don’t recall much of it, besides the fact that I didn’t fully leave my body (cause I could still feel my hands and face the whole time). But it’s possible that both trips got somewhat mixed up in my head. I don’t really think I was nowhere near “awakening” or full non-duality experience, but I was not expecting that from a first try anyway. I’m happy with what I had!

The aftermath: I was so glad to eat something! The euphoric feeling was still present and I realized the value of the small pleasures of material life – like eating a salad! Honestly, the best I’ve ever tasted. The following night, I listened to the playlist you sent me while going to bed. I could close my eyes and actually feel recollections of the trips! What difference will it make in my life? Not sure about this. I’m the kind of guy who collects a lot of data and experiences before changing his worldview. There are very few things that can induce, by themselves alone, a radical shift in my perspective. But still, this experience will be significant. I’m also eager to see the effect it has on my shroom trips. Will I do it again some time in the future? Definitely, if I have the chance. Next time though, I may possibly go the HCL way, because smoking is so quick and intense that it’s overwhelming. I expect that snorting would leave me a bit more time to calm down and fully experience the void. But it will be for another time. Thank you again for everything. I’m so grateful of how simple it was to get in touch with you. You can be proud to fulfill this mission of great value for humanity.

A day with Olli & 5MEO

I wanted to write a few words about the beautiful 1 on 1 experience I had with Olli and 5MEO. The journey was incredible and I am delighted that Olli was there to chaperone me from beginning to end. Olli is the real deal, he is full of love and is genuine with his desire to ensure that your time with him is safe, grounded and amazing.

He took time during a long walk in the forest near his home to get to know me and my story, and he told me all about himself and his background and how he reached his point in life. The walk was a real ice breaker and I got to know Olli and felt safe with him and his experience in his role.

He made me feel completely relaxed. I even had the pleasure to meet his 8 toads which was uber cool, he loves those animals and he treats them like royalty. The 5MEO experience was mind blowing for me, I won’t go into the details of the trip as there are dozens of stories on the internet describing peoples journeys on 5MEO.

My point of writing this is to tell you that I would wholeheartedly recommend Olli. My experience was utterly incredible and I will forever remember Olli”s love, wisdom and assistance.

C.W. (private TOAD 1:1, April 2017)
I did a private session together with a close friend. The day starts with a relaxing walk in the forest, where you get to know and trust each other. After that there was a wonderful TOAD session in the nice atmosphere of his private home. If you are looking for the life changing, sacred experiences offered Olli is the person to go to. His loving energy will help you to have a safe and profound experience.
A. (private Toad 1:1/1:2 February 2017)
Truly an amazing weekend, beautiful house in nature, wholesome food and great people. It was personally a difficult experience that opened the door to love, connectedness and serenity. Ollie and Jeroen are both passionate and compassionate, full of love. A big thanks to both of them for guiding me through the experience and making it possible.
M.S. (June Weekend 2016)

I’m writing this testimonial few months after having 1:1 Bufo session with Oliver.

Bufo was truly amazing, inner peace beyond boundaries. Which is not to say it was all easy experience, but one of the most healing ones for me. And Oliver helped me to understand something important on my path. Many thanks for helping me experience and grow. 🙂

See you some day with Psilohuasca. Much love and joy of being! Sharing the blessings. 🙂

S.K. private 1:1 Toad session
After inhaling there was a total tsunami taking me over. And then I needed help, because fear in rawest form showed itself. You gave me total support and love, Olli, which really helped to dissolve the fear, to consume it and move on – to love. The lesson was priceless and works through in daily life – which is the greatest gift of all. Thanks Toad, thanks Olli!
R.B. private Toad session, June 2015

This was a uniquely profound experience, but I do not interpret it. I am not trying really. Sometimes in the past messages have been very clearly associated with a particular experience, but this one was not like that, or so far has not been.

I could say that I have more visions, lucid dreams and generally more of a meditative state since last week, but it is not really a conclusion. Anyway, none of this matters, since I am sure of one thing and that is that all is and will be fine. There is no problem to be solved, but there is a very interesting and nice game to be played, and I am enjoying it. I am not attached to outcome and I do not know the outcome, but I know the quality that it has, what it feels like, what is possible and what is not possible, and certainly I am stronger now in this knowledge. It means I can unlearn the manifestation into my life of the fruits of fear and allow source to do its work. Some part must always remain mystery.

S. – private Toad session March 2015

Toad, 5-MeO, other medicines/sacraments, meditation, zen, reiki, yoga, playing music or spending time deep in nature: in my own experience, all these things seem to point toward some fundamental energy or consciousness that our individual human experience arises out of. What some people call God, I suppose. I think all are valid ways to experience this state of being, they just vary in intensity level, and have different “ways in”. Different door, maybe even different room, but same house.

The toad and especially the 5MeO sent me crashing through the front door quicker than I ever imagined. A surge of physical and mental energy, a rapid dissolving of any sense of being an individual into an infinitely expanding/contracting, multiplying/condensing hurricane of energy that was everything and nothing at once, then a deeper, even more vast emptiness, which I can’t even be sure I really even experienced, because there is no way to describe it now, or even recall it, exactly. Then a slow return to the experience of being an individual, where along the way I was filled with as much awe as joy, where my ability to relax and trust was deeply challenged, and then rewarded with an incredible process of catharsis. Ultimately, I felt like “myself” again, everything was the same. And also, everything had changed.

As I write to you again to update this testimony 5 weeks later, I can tell you that the specific memories of the toad/5MeO experiences themselves have continued to fade, like a dream, but the benefits remain. For instance, I have found a general boost in my motivation to “get on with it”, to begin taking some real action toward accomplishing all the things I want to do with my life.

There is also a deeper sense of appreciation for the myriad joys and even sorrows from day to day: nature, friends, moments of relaxation, and yes, even work!

And something I didn’t expect is that I no longer crave sugar the way I used to. I have had an uncontrollable sugar addiction since I was a child, which led to a few health issues, but now I am much better able to mediate my sugar intake, and I simply don’t get the physical and mental cravings that I used to, though I know it’s up to me now to maintain that, not the medicine.

Lastly, the lingering sense of openness and calm helped me re-establish a daily meditation practice, which I have maintained, and this has proved one of the most practical benefits of our sessions. I think sacrament work can deeply expand one’s sense of self and sense of what’s possible, while also challenging you, like an ironman triathlon. But something regular, like meditation, is like the daily exercise that helps keep that expanded sense of self in good working order, so you can maintain the benefits throughout your entire life. I thank the sacraments for taking the blinders off. Now it’s up to me to see what I can do with it all.

With love and thanks and a long hug.

J.G. – private Toad session January 2015
It was a great pleasure to meet! thank you so much for your hospitality and helping me with the journey. I can assure you I gained more then I came for and took away some valuable lessons for which i am grateful to you. We shall certainly stay connected and I am sure you will see me again.
M. L. private 1:1 Toad session November 2014

Did the Toad touch me? Or was I touched by the Toad? Probably we blended together as One? Reality? A mystery………

Thank you Olli and the Toads for so lovingly initiating me in to the wondrous existence. What a perfect way for us that can’t take a whole weekend off to experience the sacrament. Just as wondrous is how something that takes you so far then let you within an hour return fully to this material plane.

Thanks you Toads, thank you Olli!

PS A lovely comeback to medicine transcendence after my 6 year break.

– E. T. private toad session September 2014

Toad is my friend. I had some suppressed anger and rage from abuse as an infant. I had done clearings before the retreat to give my Self permission to release it. As we sat in the room in a circle, each person took turns. As I watched everyone it was a very short but powerful experience.

My turn came and with only one puff, I went immediately into that place as an infant and let out the rage and anger towards my Dad and suddenly I was in bliss. I was in my Divine Feminine and I was experiencing my Self for the very first time without that hidden anger. Since then I have not seen it show up. Mind you I had cleared it first and given my Self permission to release it.

It was very short and a wonderful experience. I just wanted to stay in that bliss. Hugs and kisses to all those in the room for loving me through that!

– S. L. ( July weekend 2014)
Experiencing the toad was absolutely overwhelming. Stronger and maybe also a little more jolted than my previous experiences I can only say it was the presence of pure love. A beautiful journey with our little spiritual heart-family once again. As always Olli and Jeroen were there for us, all the way. Thank you again so much, both of you!
– C. F. (May weekend 2014)

The love of the Toad –

How a lethal venom can bring you to heaven and back in a gentle and loving way. Smoking the toad’s venom gave me an instant feeling of bliss. I feel that this medicine is so powerful that it doesn’t even matter if you suffer from any fear before taking it. It manages to instantly switch off the ego and to cast the consciousness out of the materialistic realm. There is no way of fighting it, so there is no reason to be afraid of it. But all this is just my rational interpretation of what happened.. What I can remember is the following:

• The image of a slow turning wheel that consists out of four parts: a round center surrounded by three segments..

• Consciousness without a sense of self..

• A strong and warm feeling of love, and a feeling of touching the divine..

• A strong feeling of trust, like “All is fine” accompanied with a white light

• A message like “Be patient, move slowly, but keep moving”

Anyway, the experience is very precious to me. It’s almost two weeks later and I still feel a release of anxiety. One thing I know for sure, It made me a more peaceful being!

– D. V. (January weekend 2014)

There we go again!! A dive into the unknown. A peak around the corner ! We have gathered in this cosy country house in the south of Holland. Staying here for two nights! We are with 15 people. Some familiar but most of them are new. New to me and new to the ceremony and the sacrament.

Arriving quite late. I felt like, I did not make enough time to connect. The group was very diverse and time was short. But we did connect through the heart, which is more important! Warm hugs, open faces ! All beautiful, loving people!!

It’s Friday-night close to eight. The living room has been made ready for the occasion. The lights turned off. There’s a wood-fire going together with some tea-lights. The lights of the flames make the ceremonial-space come alive. The room is playfully decorated with wall hangings, crystals. Several kinds of toads. A Buddha of course! And mushroom statuettes of all sorts. A couple of mattresses in the centre of the room. Brian Eno’s music is filling the air. Was he already playing or do I only notice it now? He fills the air with a deep expectation. The reality of the moment is suddenly right in front of me but in a playable form. There is fear…. but I know how to overcome the fear and… how to jump!

My hands are sweating. I feel shivers down my legs. A knot around my stomach. I’m sure. I am not the only one, going through some uncertainties, anxieties and fear. Can anyone really know why we do the things we do? [ Do I want to be saved? ] Smoking toad and eating mushrooms! The psychedelic journey is everything but easy! Sometimes you have to face your darkest demons. Sometimes you end up in heaven. I have seen both sides. And these experiences filled me with awe and with great respect and gratefulness. They taught me a lot about the two different forces inside you and me. And inside everything else; Ego and Soul!

Ego is focused on matter and the physical body. Ego is the physical worlds defense/ survival mechanism. It tries to hold on to what it has/knows. Holding on doesn’t work. It only creates judgement and fear! So different from the soul or however you like to call it. The soul wants to let go. Bringing freedom and faith! The two forces are at work inside each of one of us and they express themselves through all our actions. Unfortunately!

I am distracted by external things and stories in my head. Therefore my internal world stays blurry, emotionless, speechless, most of the time! But also when I am not in touch with my internal world, the battle inside is going on. The battle between holding on to what we know and surrendering to new possibilities is actually already decided. Because in an ever-changing world. Holding on is foolish and will create conflict on every level. Bad trips included! 15 of these battles! Individually ripened for this occasion. Here we meet! Bodies reacting, hesitating. Minds… all over the place!

We are all silent but there is restlessness in the air. Anticipation on everyone’s face. Along with a great deal of love and compassion and gratefulness towards each other and towards Jeroen & Olli, Our guides and family on this journey! I feel very special and fortunate to be in their presence. They are soo pure!! Olli & Jeroen are still making their first steps in guiding people towards the mind-blowing experience they had themselves! What else can they refer to? Both of them are overflowing with the love and the magic that touched them soooo deep. Lucky us !! Effortless, Choice-less. They pass the sacrament on. The sacrament that will show us that we are always more then we think we are! And it will shine light on the different forces of the internal world. And ultimately the sacrament can make us experience. We are loved !!!

This weekend is not so much about talking or therapy but more about family and direct experience with the different forces of the internal World. Finally J & O are coming in with the first serving of the toad. First comes, first goes! The palms of my hands are sweaty. My fingers have a tight grip on . . . Nothing. I try to relax. Let’s take it easy and remember. We all come back! NO panic ! Other people go before me. Kicking off doesn’t appeal to me, being a first-timer with the toad. Maybe watching the others. While they travel to heaven or to hell, can help me with my own navigation. What I saw helped me to remember; I can be what I feel or I can observe what I feel. The more objective I observe my discomforts, the more I become detached from them and the easier it is to move on. On this psychedelic journey. On any journey !

I take my place on the mattress. I rearrange the pillows. I put the pipe to my mouth and… lower it again. Body and mind are not working together. To take a courage’s puf… Timing is vital! Already for hours my body is going through all sorts of sensations and irregularities. And my mind is all over the place. Sometimes telling me I’m a hero. Sometimes telling me I’m chasing dragons. I take a few deep breaths. I observe my body. I observe my mind. And I accept their gift! Body and mind obey. Making it possible for me to take a really big puf on the pipe and to leave them behind. In seconds I feel an energizing radiation building up inside my body. It grows and spreads out into my flesh, into my nerves. Slowly the radiation goes up and up. My body is being electrified. My face is glowing, with a tingling sensation. More and more I become vibration! The slow build-up is very enjoyable. I am riding the kundalini snake. He is very gentle to me! He fills me with vibration. His healing powers! My body responds with relaxation. I feel like a big fish in the ocean. Floating weightlessly, patiently in a big school of tiny little fish who clean me from parasites. The healing powers of the finer vibrations become more and more obvious to me. And I’m filled with gratitude being touched soo deep. A tear comes up in my eyes. A token of my love. My love for this snake! Its no mistake. He liberates! In my minds eye visions start to appear. Colourful aura fields. I see faces. More snakes, flowers. But the visions are weak and not interesting, yet! So I open my eyes and notice a glowing, shining mist hanging in the room. I focus my eyes on the mist, to realise it’s more like a grid, a network! And right in front of my eyes it came alive, alive with vibration. And the vibration was adding colour, depth and new dimensions. The same vibrations I feel searching through my weightless body. I close my eyes again. Sinking deeper and deeper into bliss. The visuals are more clear with my eyes closed. Visions of spirals, colours, twirling mandalas, vibrations. Mixed with random images from everyday life. And again. . . the grid ! And again the grid came alive and started to vibrate and move. Creating multi-dimensional geometrical shapes. Continuously moving, spiraling, throbbing, pulsating. I’m being carried on the finest vibrations. They touch me in every cell and every atom. What a massage! Did I ever feel better? I see the image of a wild river. A river of rainbows. Colours running like crazy. I was swapped of my feet and landed softly in the river. For a moment I was afraid of rocks but soon realised there was none. Joyfully I went along, I was carried gently on the tip of the waves. Sometimes the river would turn ugly. Full of worms, scorpions, broken glass. Little tests on the way. I feel great so they become no distraction. How I feel is more important then What I see! I am observing myself playing in the river. At the same time I observe the grid, the network! How it’s forming geometrical shapes out of nowhere. Like pulses. Pulsating with life force. While I’m carried lightly on the waves. One large geometrical shape starts to shine from its core. A beautiful white/yellowish light and visions of fields and mountains with open blue skies. I was looking at the ceiling of a mosque and a cathedral. Beautifully decorated. Demons and saints. But with roofs wide-open and blue sky above! The cathedral turned into an enormous treasure. Gold, diamonds and crystals. Shining bright. And filling the whole of the geometrical shape. The image of the treasure is changing from gold, diamonds and crystals to pure white light to golden coins and back. It seemed like the rainbow-river was absorbed by the light of the treasure. And I went with it. Carried swiftly on the waves and thrown gently into the treasure. For a beautiful moment I felt like Donald Duck’s rich uncle. Swimming in his money. Then the light took over. I saw light. I felt it all around me and inside of me. It’s vibration. I’m vibration! I’m touched soo deep. It’s like an orgasm on cellular and spiritual level. For this occasion the mental level is not of much use. It feels to me that the mind for most of it is absorbed by the senses, which are mostly focused on survival and moving around in the “normal world”. With my awareness or the observer inside of me. I can investigate and navigate my mind (like preparing a bungee-jump). I can overcome all fears. But even the observer becomes sort of detached when the final stage is entered. The stage of pure being. Pure love. Pure life force. Pure beauty. Here all my bodies are being held through the vitalizing vibrations that I have connected with on this mind-blowing journey! Being in this place feels like the ultimate home. Deep inside my mother. My deepest desire fulfilled! Her touch, her love, her warmth. I feel full of life and save. I shine! I’m receiving her gift. Her gift is faith !!! The gift of faith has always been difficult to accept. While it has always been an every-day lesson. I fight it in many ways. My mind is corrupting faith so often. My body reacting with fear. How did I ever ask for this gift? How could I know?! Did the snake know? No attachments to the body! Not to the ego and not to the mind. I am nowhere. I am here. I’m everywhere! I am receiving her gift with arms wide open. Her gift of faith. Just FAITH!! Because I remember I’m loved. The Dutch word for faith is: vertrouwen ver = far; trouwen = marriage. A far marriage! Some people call this a sacred marriage; A direct experience with the not yet known living force behind this illusionary spectacle!!!

THIS IS A PLACE HOLDER FOR A NEW TESTIMONIAL THAT MUST FIRST BE DUPLICATED. ALSO, FOR THIS TESTIMONIAL BLOCK TO SHOW UP ITS RESPONSIVENESS MUST BE ADJUSTED IN --->>> ADVANCED --->>> RESPONSIVE!!! SAME PROCEDURE GOES FOR DIVIDER UNDERNEATH.
LOREM IPSUM SIT
If you, like me, are trying psychedelics for the first time, it is likely you will be concerned about the quality of the product, experience of the sitter, nature of the setting, and, well, many other things. Let me reassure you - Olli is as prepared and genuine as it seems. Yes, he is dependable, organized, and has perfected the process. But, more importantly, he is genuine, warm and sensitive, and will make you feel at home. His product is of high (obsessive) quality, he will open his home to you and the care is real. And, on top of all that, he will let you have your own experience - neither intruding, nor suggesting, nor trying to shape. Simply being there to witness and help. Take the plunge.
D. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session July 2019)
I thank Olli for accepting and trusting me in his home. I can't even properly begin to describe what it did for me. Of course the experience from the drug itself was very intense and amazing, which you can know more about if you search; but this experience being supported by someone as amazing and loving as Olli, added up a lot to the whole experience for me. He cares deeply about his clients, treats them with much love and would want to know about them as much as needed to be sure that they are ready for it. He creates a very loving and safe atmosphere which you are able to trust very fast. Even for me as an originally Iranian female who wouldn't easily trust others, especially after just knowing them for a few hours. His loving energy is true and you would be able to feel it. He would guide you trough it and make you feel like there is nothing to worry about, just let go and you will see how much it will open you up to the world around you. It has definitely changed my view to the world, even to the smallest details. I personally think that does't matter how experienced you are in using all kinds of things, this is not a drug you can do alone for the first time at the least and you would really need an environment that is safe and loving, because that is what is necessary for you not to be afraid and open up. I couldn't find many other places that do this and feel right at the same time. I am always thankful to him for his guidance and for offering me this opportunity to be able to change and heal myself this strongly.
F.S. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session June 2019)
I was insuch good hands and I felt I could trust Olli completely - he takes his mission very seriously and he knows what was is doing. Which is so important for the trip with the 5Meo to be safe and succesful, which it was in my case. I guess I was mentally ready and prepared by years of meditation and previous experience in psychedelics. I had what is called "the full blown experience". No screaming and rolling around on the ground like you can see with some people on Youtube, It doesn't have to be like that. So if you've seen these videos, don't let them pull you of. It is not easy to describe this kind of experience in a few word, But I instantly after inhaling the substance I simply leaned into the experience without resistance. Or I didn't actually DO it, it was just the way it happened. When consiousness started to come back I was just floating totally relaxed in a soft white light in a kind of an absolute state - the nothingness, or oneness. It was total bliss, very soft and very, very beautiful in an abstract kind of way. I use the memory of the experience when meditating. It works very well.
K.B. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session June 2019)
Like many, I was attracted to DMT over the last couple of years given the increasing popularity, testimonies, and the countless podcasts discussing its potential benefits. I first turned to the dark web and planned to make a trip (no pun intended) out of the experience, and try it all on my own. Now, I'm very glad that the plans I was making with some friends fell through, because having experienced 5meo with Ollie, in a very safe, comfortable, and trusting environment, I am convinced this is the only way to go--at least for the first time. In fact, the first thing that Ollie did was to address and detest the hype, and build realistic and honest expectations. So, once the plans didn't work out, I started searching for retreats where I could experience with people who know what they're doing, but mostly without the hustle of not going 'legit'. I have contacted many, many people in my search, so I can tell you confidently that Ollie's got the best approach out there. I first heard about him in various forums, and slowly pieced together that different posters with very positive experiences were talking about the same guy. So, here's my experience in a nutshell: I knew I was in good hands as soon as I heard back from Ollie. Rather than providing a few details like most other people / retreats I have reached out, Ollie really cares about you, which becomes very evident from the probing and the very professional set of questions designed to make sure you're really up for it, and for the 'right' reasons. I am quoting 'right' for reasons Ollie will explain to you himself, but let's just say it's more like not for the wrong reasons. By the time I was ready to pay him a visit, we already built some trust, and I really felt like I'm ready. Once I arrived at Ollie's place, we took the famous 1.5 hr walk in the nearby forest that felt more like 15mins. He clearly built on what we've already exchanged in the emails, showing great attention to the nuances, and understanding of where I'm coming from. It was more about building trust than explaining or lecturing, and by the end of it, I felt in safe, capable hands, and eager to DO IT. The rest is both personal and unique for everyone, but however it works out for you, there is no better person to guide you there.
D.M. & O.M. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session May 2019)
I was impressed with Olli immediately because of his concern, asking for very personal details about my life up front. I was planning a pilgrimage in Europe. We had communicated several times via email since I live in North America. When I originally found Olli’s website, his detailed information, videos and testimonials helped assure me that he is the real deal. Once I met Olli in person I got how genuine he really is. He drove me to an old growth forest where we walked and talked and got to know each other for a couple of ours. It set the tone for the session and made the whole experience more meaningful. I decided at the forest I’m going to do exactly what this guy tells me to do.
When it came time for the session I knew he had my back and that he is a master at this work. His setting is amazing and comfortable and I knew it was as safe for me as possible. Before we started Olli was crystal clear and confident explaining his instructions as to what I might experience, how he would help if things got too intense, how it might feel reintegrating into my body and how best to draw the smoke from the pipe. Most important, was they way he said: ‘Remember, this is just an experience and no matter what, it’s going to be over in about ten minutes, just do nothing and relax”. He really did his best to set me up for success.
So, when my lungs were as full as I could get them and I released the pipe to him and laid back, all that preparation made it possible for the most profoundly beautiful experience of my life. Words are not remotely adequate for my gratitude for him and what he does. My experience with Olli was a true crescendo to my Pilgrimage, beyond anything imaginable. If I ever feel the need to do another 5MeO session I would likely fly another 13 hours to do it with Olli.
P.W. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session May 2019)
Olli is a genuine person that will make you feel at complete ease, like a friend. The word friend is not arbitrary here as it demonstrates a relationship built on trust. It takes someone with a lot of experience to drop the mentor role and just be with you as it is; not trying to interfere with your experience, letting you experience it fully and safely. As for the experience itself, keep an open mind. It’s different for everyone. It might even be different to you from one time to another.  I had a very pleasant time.
H.S. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session May 2019)
I cannot thank you enough for this session, which was really a revelation for me. All my questions about how consciousness, which we are, dreams this world into being, were answered. Off course now, returned to daily life, I cannot remember everything, just parts of what happened or was shown.
The thing I keep coming back to is the question you also asked several times: who are you? Who had this experience? Who had this revelation? Who is inside this body? But that is the part I do remember. There is no body, it is not an object. I experienced coming back into the body as a set of sensations and the densest parts came last, the bones and the teeth and I could feel that. Who feels that? It is amazing.
I remember when I first opened my eyes and saw you, you looked so familiar to me that I thought I knew you all my life. Which is probably true because we are one. The e mail contact prior to the session was very helpful, because I feel we really connected and that felt save and warm already before arriving at your place. Being invited to your home made me feel very welcome. The walk in the forest was a good preparation for the session. Because I don't smoke the vapo was the best tool. The overall feeling after the session was a total reset, reborn feeling of no longer being identified with the body and mind. The food afterwards was delicious and helped me ground.
A.P. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session May 2019)
This experience with you was really life transforming for me. I feel so peaceful now. Several times a day I have tears in my eyes just looking around me, it’s beautiful.  All my life I was a bit uncomfortable socially and now I feel so at ease :). I also aways had trouble focusing. I don’t have that problem anymore.  I remember during the experience when I started to panic, you were there for me. I was starting to think, "this is the biggest mistake of my life » and in what felt like just a few seconds I was completely relaxed. I find that amazing. Thanks to you I had the most life transforming experience of my life, so thank you so much!!
N.G. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session April 2019)
The 5 meo season with Oli was mature, deep and full of love, it was a great experience under a good caretaker with a felt mass of experience in the field, thank you Oli !
G.N. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session February 2019)
I smoked 5 Meo DMT. I started to feel that I am somewhere outside Earth world (in different dimension). Then I am a dot jumping around with a few thoughts. Olli told me about bad session. I am having bad session. Another thought - what I have done, I am crazy in Earth world after the session and fear occurs. I feel energy going through my arms. I lost my family, my life. Then I hear your voice: everything is Okay, just breath, music.. And then I am realizing that I am not a D. and it really doesn't matter what happens with D., and just releasing it, let it go. Then I am just inside (and I am) a wonderful Infinite world - no time, there is nothing and everything, pure love… And then I appear in body. First thoughts: D. is alive and not crazy, I love my mind and my life.
D.R. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session January 2019)
My dear Olli, thank you cannot adequately express my gratitude to you for the love, compassion, care and concern you have shown me, not only during our session, but since we first made contact. I never knew I had such wonderful brother here in Europe! Your heart is boundless and unconditional love pervades you. Thank you dear heart!
S.A. (5MeO DMT 1:1 Session December 2018)
My girlfriend and I did a 5MeO DMT 1:2 Session with Olli. This experience was beautiful and unique and so much different than anything we could have imagined. When we arrived at Olli's place we were quite stressed about the upcoming experience. However, after meeting and walking with Olli we felt already much more relaxed. Indeed, we could feel all his love and genuine intention and that was very reasuring. After the experience, we had a delicious lunch with him. Once again his great vibes helped us make a smooth transition back into this reality. We will never forget the time spent together. With much love.
A and N (5MeO DMT 1:2 Session October 2018)
The prospect of traveling to a new country, to meet someone who I had never met before, to try psychedelics for the first time was, somewhat daunting. However, after spending some time chatting with Oli I can safely say that those worries soon dissolved. The setting in which ‘The Experience’ took place was relaxing, calming and reassuring. During the session, Oli was professional, caring, reassuring and loving. I could tell that Oli has lots of experience looking after people under the influence of psychedelics. As for ‘the experience’ itself…WOW. It’s not for me to describe but I all I can say is that if you are looking for a person and a place to guide you through your first psychedelic experience…you have found it! It is hard to express using words how grateful I am to Oli for doing what he does: ‘my'(haa ha) ‘life'(haha) has been changed forever. Thank you.
P. S. (5MeO Session September 2018)

In such encounter, there is a thin line between being friendlinessly welcoming and remaining professional so that the temporary relationship is based on grounded trust. And Olli walks perfectly along it. So that if you are looking for experiencing the Power of the Toad, and in the case that he accepts to administrate you the medicine, you can blindly surrender yourself to him. If the content of you experience is obviously not in his hands, you can be assured that for all the rest Everything will be handled with Love, Care, Attention, Open Heart and Comforting Presence.

As for me, I understood I had the chance to go through a ‘succesful experience’. I’m sure I won’t offend any of you by keeping the content of this experience in within me. I can just tell you that reaping all the fruits of it will take an extended period of time. The richness of this Eternally Short moment is yet to be dug out the Earth, little by little. I am thus grateful that Olli’s path and mine have crossed. At this cross section lies a moment ot Time that I can surely call: my Awakening. So, if you happen to feel the call, go to Olli and he’ll deliver the message in the most beautiful manner.

J.R. (5MeO DMT session August 2018)

The session with Olli was one of the most important experiences of my life.

Olli created an environment that enabled me to relax and fully release into the experience. Though I was slightly nervous leading up to the session, I felt completely at ease after spending the morning with Olli. His love, compassion, and understanding created a very safe atmosphere for this powerful experience.

It is difficult (nearly impossible) to articulate the toad experience itself. I will say that as I came back into my body, I have never felt such a profound feeling of thankfulness and gratitude for being alive. I can’t overstate how important this feeling was at the time, and how it now feels one week after the experience. I am seeing a beauty in my life, other people, and the world that I hadn’t noticed previously.

Thank you again Olli for creating a space for people to have profound experiences and (hopefully) share this with the rest of the world.

With love, thanks, and a heartfelt, long hug.

G. (5MeO DMT session August 2018)

Hey guys you don’t need to go to South America for a session. Olli is super cool, Long experience, spiritual approach! (Just don’t let yourself be too easily rejected 😉

It was for me the most beautiful and one of the most important experience s in my life. Once a handshake with god and back. I was rejoicing, crying and laughing. I didn’t know that human is capable of so much joy and happiness. This made it first time possibly for me to experience unity, I don’t have to believe it anymore, now I know it. And this is an ever flowing fountain of love.

Thank you Olli for creating this holy setting and for creating the Consciousness of respect for this “Rocket into eternity” I love you!!! (And your toads 😉

D. P. (5MeO DMT session June 2018)
My short time with Olli was one of the most important experiences of my life. I have had a number of powerful psychedelic experiences, but my experience with the sacred toad was far beyond even DMT experiences. It is definitely, definitely not recreational, and definitely not for everyone! Even with some experience, it pushed me to my limits. I had a very challenging trip, and I am forever grateful to Olli for his guidance and experience in helping integrate my trip. But they say challenging trips are the most beneficial! While other trips have given me a cool light show with beautiful visions, I feel they sometimes boosted my ego. I felt like I was becoming more and more spiritual. This was not the case with the toad - there were no visions, no ego, just overwhelming truth, beyond language and reality as we know it. Since then, almost a full year ago, I have not even thought about psychedelics, let alone taking them. The toad showed me my place is here in the present moment, not searching, not striving, just living. It showed me that I am experiencing a temporary human journey, that life and reality itself are manifestations of god, or source energy. Olli is a great teacher and a beautiful person, I would recommend his work to anyone! I knew I was in good company when he talked about Ram Dass and Neem Karoli Baba! Thank you for a great experience and wise words, Olli!
K.G. (5MeO DMT session Januar 2018)
As a solo female traveler with no prior experience with psychedelics, i was a bit hesitant but the desire to do the sacrament was stronger. However as soon as i met Olli, who is not a human but a human sized heart, who accepted me with his warmth and kindness , i felt so comfortable, there is no one in the world i would have gone to for this experience. There is not too much i can share about the experience itself; having pursued spiritual life for many years now, it gave me what i needed. Everyone’s experience is different, in my humble opinion the sacrament gives one not what they want but what they need it seems… I am endlessly grateful to Olli for everything, for doing this for all of us. Thank you Olli , when sending positive vibrations to the world, i will always remember you and you will always be a special person in my life.
L.M. (5MeO DMT session Januar 2018)

Only a couple of days have passed since we met but I am looking at the world so differently… People, trees, dogs, birds, grass… everything is so alive. It’s like my senses were blunt and now I can see. It’s not that I am enlightened or anything, but what I learned gave me not only perspective, but opened my eyes to what I was missing out. I learned many things during my 5meo DMT experience but two things are the most important to what I needed to learn.

1) God exists; we are all one; death is just a transition and love is the underlying force in the Universe.

2) There is no control.

The first bit is important because it let all fear go away and is the feel good part of the experience. But the juicy part comes with the second bit, the bit that made me scream like a madman such was the terror I experienced. The realisation that there is no control whatsoever is, what I believe, the key to live life to the fullest. During our walk, prior to the session, you told me many things that I resonated with, but at that time they were just words. Now I know that they are living things and that you were preparing me not for the experience but for the part where I go home and have to integrate it in my everyday life. One of the things that I lacked was gratitude. Gratitude towards life, towards others. Today I am no longer the same person and gratitude is the word that pops out when I think of what you did for me. You showed me the door, you guided me through path and you even took care of the aftermath in advance. What about that for worth?!!! Knowing that there is no control, I am becoming more gentle, easygoing and tasting life in ways that I never tasted before. If you ever find yourself in trouble, I am here for you. When I look at other people, my mind doesn’t let me see them as my true brothers and sisters, even if I know that is the case. In your case, I will always remember when I looked at you and saw myself and when love was the only force present in that room, in that Universe in miniature.

P.B. – private TOAD/5MEO DMT session, January 2018

I spent a day with Olli and 5MEO. It has been the most profound experience that I’ve had in my 28 years of life. In a matter of seconds, everything there is emmerged into one vortex while I became one with the universe. The ego death was beyond liberating. For the first time in my life, I could experience that there was nowhere to go, nowhere to rush; just a pure existence in unison with the universe, in unison with the breath of everyone and everything alive – just pure love, kindness and forgiveness. Before the Toad, I had been in a race with time in super busy London, now I can say I am one with time. It felt like I touched God.

Olli has developed a great structure to the whole day. By that special moment, I had a complete trust in him. I could hardly ever thank Olli enough for allowing me to experiece this moment. Also – to comment on something less abstract – the food Olli made was DELICIOUS!

V.P. (private Toad 1:1 December 2o17)
Thank you for your enthusiasm and caring. And for having the strangest job on the planet! It’s great that you’re giving people the opportunity to experience something so profound.
S.B. (private Toad 1:1 November 2o17)

Ollie’s compassion and knowledge was a deep comfort. I was unsure what exactly to expect before I tried 5-MeO-DMT. I was nervous and intrigued by other users’ accounts.

I now believe the most important thing when doing Entheogens is to be in the presence of someone who can create a safe space in which to experience such a profound, life altering substance. Ollie fulfils this role very wisely helping the experiencer to keep an open mind and creates an environment in which mother nature can teach.

There are no words for the experience itself and nor could there be. The less one goes into the encounter with preconceived ideas about what one will ‘see’ or ‘become’ the better. If you are going to use the sacred medicine, then I wish you all the love you deserve in your life.

Ben. (private Toad 1:1 November 2o17)

I’d love to write a lengthy review of the first couple of hours that I spent with you, but really, I don’t have much to say here – besides the fact that this was as perfect as it can be!The walk in the woods was an ideal way to convey a free, yet intimate, atmosphere. I don’t believe that I hold any deeply buried trauma, but still, I can definitely see the usefulness of such a slow-paced discussion! Back to your house, I must admit that I was a bit surprised to enter a regular family house, with bicycles in the garage, cat trees in the living room, etc. (yeah… beforehand, I was kinda picturing your place as small hut in the woods with shamanic utensils, flasks and artifacts hanging around. Silly, I know!). Any case, your place is lovely! It feels warm and cozy. Very safe indeed. Also, meeting the toads was very cool and quite unique! Even if we didn’t had much time because of my early departure, it was enough to build trust and confidence. From the very beginning, I knew that you where honest and responsible.

The trip: I was finally there, sitting in a unknown living room, in a country whose language I don’t even speak a word, about to fill my lungs with some poisonous toad slime. The stress was starting to build up. I knew that I was going to face some serious shit, but I only started to realize it now. False start. My belly was tight, my breath was short. We had to go for the vap. At this point I didn’t care much. Actually, it even gave me some more minutes to calm down. “Are you ready?” – “Yes”. I was not. But can you really be? You paused the music. I started to inhale. OK, now it’s done. I’ve made a choice, there’s no going back. I lied on the mat, still holding on the smoke. Oh wait, I forgot to ask him: “Should I release it nowwwwwwwwwwwww-“. Blank. No sound, no color, no touch, no feeling, no thought. The world had melted away and my corpse had vaporized. I could not feel my body, nor did I remember the distant feeling of being human. “Man, can a chemical even do that?”. I started to hear these typical insect/tribal DMT-like whispers as I plunged into oblivion. There was no visual, no crazy effects, no hallucination of any sort. I was still in the process of falling onto the mat. And still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still, and still. Always closer, but never really there. “This is it, I’m dying”. Foolish me. If only it could be so easy. Existence was overwhelming, shocking, too abstract, too real. I couldn’t handle it… but then arose the most frightening realization I’ve ever had: I couldn’t let go either. Death was not an option, because I invented it. I was already gone. There was nowhere else to go. This was all there is. I couldn’t cry, I couldn’t laugh, I couldn’t hate, I couldn’t love, I couldn’t be, I couldn’t stop being. I couldn’t anything; nor did I could nothing. This is so terrifying, so petrifying. So dreadfully gorgeous. Heaven was hell and hell was heaven. Because infinite suffering equals infinite pleasure. I felt like I was sitting in a roller-coaster which would rip through all possible existence and non-existence in a split second. Then repeat twice faster. And twice faster. And twice faster. And twice. And twice. Twice. Twice. Twice. Twice-Twice-Twice-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T. Immediately, I would go through everything in zero time. Through none for eternity. It seemed like the whole universe was aware of the cosmic joke from the very beginning of time, only waiting for me to wake up and join it. “Just breathhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhheeee”. I heard the words but they had no meaning, and I can only reconstruct them now, in retrospect. I wanted to take in some air, but each breathing would suck the universe into itself and keep filling me for ever. Each fluctuation of my awareness would ripple into an infinite fractal of resonances. OK, I’ve seen it. How do I go back? Stop! “Help!” No, that’s silly. I want to stay. Wait. I don’t know. I just- (At this point, I suspect that I was starting to come back down, as I intuitively used an English word) Goddamnit, I have a head! I totally forgot that I could have a head. I can tilt it to the left. I can see a human face. And I can assign this face to someone I know. And I can think about myself thinking. “Wow, that was…”. Look, I can even talk! How I am supposed to do it already? I felt great. I remember hearing you chewing a gum. It was quite funny (“I have just been sliced into a trillion pieces and scattered through hyper-spacetime, and this dude was sitting here all the time, chewing a gum as if nothing happened”).

Now, these are just words. As you know, there is no way to really convey this type of experience with speech. Plus, I had read so much about the substance in the past that I cannot really tell how much of this story stems from my genuine experience vs. how much of it has been recreated by my mind post-integration. Overall, it went quite fast. The whole trip felts like 3-4 minutes long, so I may have forgotten some parts. The second 10mg trip felt even shorter: like 30 seconds. I don’t recall much of it, besides the fact that I didn’t fully leave my body (cause I could still feel my hands and face the whole time). But it’s possible that both trips got somewhat mixed up in my head. I don’t really think I was nowhere near “awakening” or full non-duality experience, but I was not expecting that from a first try anyway. I’m happy with what I had!

The aftermath: I was so glad to eat something! The euphoric feeling was still present and I realized the value of the small pleasures of material life – like eating a salad! Honestly, the best I’ve ever tasted. The following night, I listened to the playlist you sent me while going to bed. I could close my eyes and actually feel recollections of the trips! What difference will it make in my life? Not sure about this. I’m the kind of guy who collects a lot of data and experiences before changing his worldview. There are very few things that can induce, by themselves alone, a radical shift in my perspective. But still, this experience will be significant. I’m also eager to see the effect it has on my shroom trips. Will I do it again some time in the future? Definitely, if I have the chance. Next time though, I may possibly go the HCL way, because smoking is so quick and intense that it’s overwhelming. I expect that snorting would leave me a bit more time to calm down and fully experience the void. But it will be for another time. Thank you again for everything. I’m so grateful of how simple it was to get in touch with you. You can be proud to fulfill this mission of great value for humanity.

A day with Olli & 5MEO

I wanted to write a few words about the beautiful 1 on 1 experience I had with Olli and 5MEO. The journey was incredible and I am delighted that Olli was there to chaperone me from beginning to end. Olli is the real deal, he is full of love and is genuine with his desire to ensure that your time with him is safe, grounded and amazing.

He took time during a long walk in the forest near his home to get to know me and my story, and he told me all about himself and his background and how he reached his point in life. The walk was a real ice breaker and I got to know Olli and felt safe with him and his experience in his role.

He made me feel completely relaxed. I even had the pleasure to meet his 8 toads which was uber cool, he loves those animals and he treats them like royalty. The 5MEO experience was mind blowing for me, I won’t go into the details of the trip as there are dozens of stories on the internet describing peoples journeys on 5MEO.

My point of writing this is to tell you that I would wholeheartedly recommend Olli. My experience was utterly incredible and I will forever remember Olli”s love, wisdom and assistance.

C.W. (private TOAD 1:1, April 2017)
I did a private session together with a close friend. The day starts with a relaxing walk in the forest, where you get to know and trust each other. After that there was a wonderful TOAD session in the nice atmosphere of his private home. If you are looking for the life changing, sacred experiences offered Olli is the person to go to. His loving energy will help you to have a safe and profound experience.
A. (private Toad 1:1/1:2 February 2017)
Truly an amazing weekend, beautiful house in nature, wholesome food and great people. It was personally a difficult experience that opened the door to love, connectedness and serenity. Ollie and Jeroen are both passionate and compassionate, full of love. A big thanks to both of them for guiding me through the experience and making it possible.
M.S. (June Weekend 2016)

I’m writing this testimonial few months after having 1:1 Bufo session with Oliver.

Bufo was truly amazing, inner peace beyond boundaries. Which is not to say it was all easy experience, but one of the most healing ones for me. And Oliver helped me to understand something important on my path. Many thanks for helping me experience and grow. 🙂

See you some day with Psilohuasca. Much love and joy of being! Sharing the blessings. 🙂

S.K. private 1:1 Toad session
After inhaling there was a total tsunami taking me over. And then I needed help, because fear in rawest form showed itself. You gave me total support and love, Olli, which really helped to dissolve the fear, to consume it and move on – to love. The lesson was priceless and works through in daily life – which is the greatest gift of all. Thanks Toad, thanks Olli!
R.B. private Toad session, June 2015

This was a uniquely profound experience, but I do not interpret it. I am not trying really. Sometimes in the past messages have been very clearly associated with a particular experience, but this one was not like that, or so far has not been.

I could say that I have more visions, lucid dreams and generally more of a meditative state since last week, but it is not really a conclusion. Anyway, none of this matters, since I am sure of one thing and that is that all is and will be fine. There is no problem to be solved, but there is a very interesting and nice game to be played, and I am enjoying it. I am not attached to outcome and I do not know the outcome, but I know the quality that it has, what it feels like, what is possible and what is not possible, and certainly I am stronger now in this knowledge. It means I can unlearn the manifestation into my life of the fruits of fear and allow source to do its work. Some part must always remain mystery.

S. – private Toad session March 2015

Toad, 5-MeO, other medicines/sacraments, meditation, zen, reiki, yoga, playing music or spending time deep in nature: in my own experience, all these things seem to point toward some fundamental energy or consciousness that our individual human experience arises out of. What some people call God, I suppose. I think all are valid ways to experience this state of being, they just vary in intensity level, and have different “ways in”. Different door, maybe even different room, but same house.

The toad and especially the 5MeO sent me crashing through the front door quicker than I ever imagined. A surge of physical and mental energy, a rapid dissolving of any sense of being an individual into an infinitely expanding/contracting, multiplying/condensing hurricane of energy that was everything and nothing at once, then a deeper, even more vast emptiness, which I can’t even be sure I really even experienced, because there is no way to describe it now, or even recall it, exactly. Then a slow return to the experience of being an individual, where along the way I was filled with as much awe as joy, where my ability to relax and trust was deeply challenged, and then rewarded with an incredible process of catharsis. Ultimately, I felt like “myself” again, everything was the same. And also, everything had changed.

As I write to you again to update this testimony 5 weeks later, I can tell you that the specific memories of the toad/5MeO experiences themselves have continued to fade, like a dream, but the benefits remain. For instance, I have found a general boost in my motivation to “get on with it”, to begin taking some real action toward accomplishing all the things I want to do with my life.

There is also a deeper sense of appreciation for the myriad joys and even sorrows from day to day: nature, friends, moments of relaxation, and yes, even work!

And something I didn’t expect is that I no longer crave sugar the way I used to. I have had an uncontrollable sugar addiction since I was a child, which led to a few health issues, but now I am much better able to mediate my sugar intake, and I simply don’t get the physical and mental cravings that I used to, though I know it’s up to me now to maintain that, not the medicine.

Lastly, the lingering sense of openness and calm helped me re-establish a daily meditation practice, which I have maintained, and this has proved one of the most practical benefits of our sessions. I think sacrament work can deeply expand one’s sense of self and sense of what’s possible, while also challenging you, like an ironman triathlon. But something regular, like meditation, is like the daily exercise that helps keep that expanded sense of self in good working order, so you can maintain the benefits throughout your entire life. I thank the sacraments for taking the blinders off. Now it’s up to me to see what I can do with it all.

With love and thanks and a long hug.

J.G. – private Toad session January 2015
It was a great pleasure to meet! thank you so much for your hospitality and helping me with the journey. I can assure you I gained more then I came for and took away some valuable lessons for which i am grateful to you. We shall certainly stay connected and I am sure you will see me again.
M. L. private 1:1 Toad session November 2014

Did the Toad touch me? Or was I touched by the Toad? Probably we blended together as One? Reality? A mystery………

Thank you Olli and the Toads for so lovingly initiating me in to the wondrous existence. What a perfect way for us that can’t take a whole weekend off to experience the sacrament. Just as wondrous is how something that takes you so far then let you within an hour return fully to this material plane.

Thanks you Toads, thank you Olli!

PS A lovely comeback to medicine transcendence after my 6 year break.

– E. T. private toad session September 2014

Toad is my friend. I had some suppressed anger and rage from abuse as an infant. I had done clearings before the retreat to give my Self permission to release it. As we sat in the room in a circle, each person took turns. As I watched everyone it was a very short but powerful experience.

My turn came and with only one puff, I went immediately into that place as an infant and let out the rage and anger towards my Dad and suddenly I was in bliss. I was in my Divine Feminine and I was experiencing my Self for the very first time without that hidden anger. Since then I have not seen it show up. Mind you I had cleared it first and given my Self permission to release it.

It was very short and a wonderful experience. I just wanted to stay in that bliss. Hugs and kisses to all those in the room for loving me through that!

– S. L. ( July weekend 2014)
Experiencing the toad was absolutely overwhelming. Stronger and maybe also a little more jolted than my previous experiences I can only say it was the presence of pure love. A beautiful journey with our little spiritual heart-family once again. As always Olli and Jeroen were there for us, all the way. Thank you again so much, both of you!
– C. F. (May weekend 2014)

The love of the Toad –

How a lethal venom can bring you to heaven and back in a gentle and loving way. Smoking the toad’s venom gave me an instant feeling of bliss. I feel that this medicine is so powerful that it doesn’t even matter if you suffer from any fear before taking it. It manages to instantly switch off the ego and to cast the consciousness out of the materialistic realm. There is no way of fighting it, so there is no reason to be afraid of it. But all this is just my rational interpretation of what happened.. What I can remember is the following:

• The image of a slow turning wheel that consists out of four parts: a round center surrounded by three segments..

• Consciousness without a sense of self..

• A strong and warm feeling of love, and a feeling of touching the divine..

• A strong feeling of trust, like “All is fine” accompanied with a white light

• A message like “Be patient, move slowly, but keep moving”

Anyway, the experience is very precious to me. It’s almost two weeks later and I still feel a release of anxiety. One thing I know for sure, It made me a more peaceful being!

– D. V. (January weekend 2014)

There we go again!! A dive into the unknown. A peak around the corner ! We have gathered in this cosy country house in the south of Holland. Staying here for two nights! We are with 15 people. Some familiar but most of them are new. New to me and new to the ceremony and the sacrament.

Arriving quite late. I felt like, I did not make enough time to connect. The group was very diverse and time was short. But we did connect through the heart, which is more important! Warm hugs, open faces ! All beautiful, loving people!!

It’s Friday-night close to eight. The living room has been made ready for the occasion. The lights turned off. There’s a wood-fire going together with some tea-lights. The lights of the flames make the ceremonial-space come alive. The room is playfully decorated with wall hangings, crystals. Several kinds of toads. A Buddha of course! And mushroom statuettes of all sorts. A couple of mattresses in the centre of the room. Brian Eno’s music is filling the air. Was he already playing or do I only notice it now? He fills the air with a deep expectation. The reality of the moment is suddenly right in front of me but in a playable form. There is fear…. but I know how to overcome the fear and… how to jump!

My hands are sweating. I feel shivers down my legs. A knot around my stomach. I’m sure. I am not the only one, going through some uncertainties, anxieties and fear. Can anyone really know why we do the things we do? [ Do I want to be saved? ] Smoking toad and eating mushrooms! The psychedelic journey is everything but easy! Sometimes you have to face your darkest demons. Sometimes you end up in heaven. I have seen both sides. And these experiences filled me with awe and with great respect and gratefulness. They taught me a lot about the two different forces inside you and me. And inside everything else; Ego and Soul!

Ego is focused on matter and the physical body. Ego is the physical worlds defense/ survival mechanism. It tries to hold on to what it has/knows. Holding on doesn’t work. It only creates judgement and fear! So different from the soul or however you like to call it. The soul wants to let go. Bringing freedom and faith! The two forces are at work inside each of one of us and they express themselves through all our actions. Unfortunately!

I am distracted by external things and stories in my head. Therefore my internal world stays blurry, emotionless, speechless, most of the time! But also when I am not in touch with my internal world, the battle inside is going on. The battle between holding on to what we know and surrendering to new possibilities is actually already decided. Because in an ever-changing world. Holding on is foolish and will create conflict on every level. Bad trips included! 15 of these battles! Individually ripened for this occasion. Here we meet! Bodies reacting, hesitating. Minds… all over the place!

We are all silent but there is restlessness in the air. Anticipation on everyone’s face. Along with a great deal of love and compassion and gratefulness towards each other and towards Jeroen & Olli, Our guides and family on this journey! I feel very special and fortunate to be in their presence. They are soo pure!! Olli & Jeroen are still making their first steps in guiding people towards the mind-blowing experience they had themselves! What else can they refer to? Both of them are overflowing with the love and the magic that touched them soooo deep. Lucky us !! Effortless, Choice-less. They pass the sacrament on. The sacrament that will show us that we are always more then we think we are! And it will shine light on the different forces of the internal world. And ultimately the sacrament can make us experience. We are loved !!!

This weekend is not so much about talking or therapy but more about family and direct experience with the different forces of the internal World. Finally J & O are coming in with the first serving of the toad. First comes, first goes! The palms of my hands are sweaty. My fingers have a tight grip on . . . Nothing. I try to relax. Let’s take it easy and remember. We all come back! NO panic ! Other people go before me. Kicking off doesn’t appeal to me, being a first-timer with the toad. Maybe watching the others. While they travel to heaven or to hell, can help me with my own navigation. What I saw helped me to remember; I can be what I feel or I can observe what I feel. The more objective I observe my discomforts, the more I become detached from them and the easier it is to move on. On this psychedelic journey. On any journey !

I take my place on the mattress. I rearrange the pillows. I put the pipe to my mouth and… lower it again. Body and mind are not working together. To take a courage’s puf… Timing is vital! Already for hours my body is going through all sorts of sensations and irregularities. And my mind is all over the place. Sometimes telling me I’m a hero. Sometimes telling me I’m chasing dragons. I take a few deep breaths. I observe my body. I observe my mind. And I accept their gift! Body and mind obey. Making it possible for me to take a really big puf on the pipe and to leave them behind. In seconds I feel an energizing radiation building up inside my body. It grows and spreads out into my flesh, into my nerves. Slowly the radiation goes up and up. My body is being electrified. My face is glowing, with a tingling sensation. More and more I become vibration! The slow build-up is very enjoyable. I am riding the kundalini snake. He is very gentle to me! He fills me with vibration. His healing powers! My body responds with relaxation. I feel like a big fish in the ocean. Floating weightlessly, patiently in a big school of tiny little fish who clean me from parasites. The healing powers of the finer vibrations become more and more obvious to me. And I’m filled with gratitude being touched soo deep. A tear comes up in my eyes. A token of my love. My love for this snake! Its no mistake. He liberates! In my minds eye visions start to appear. Colourful aura fields. I see faces. More snakes, flowers. But the visions are weak and not interesting, yet! So I open my eyes and notice a glowing, shining mist hanging in the room. I focus my eyes on the mist, to realise it’s more like a grid, a network! And right in front of my eyes it came alive, alive with vibration. And the vibration was adding colour, depth and new dimensions. The same vibrations I feel searching through my weightless body. I close my eyes again. Sinking deeper and deeper into bliss. The visuals are more clear with my eyes closed. Visions of spirals, colours, twirling mandalas, vibrations. Mixed with random images from everyday life. And again. . . the grid ! And again the grid came alive and started to vibrate and move. Creating multi-dimensional geometrical shapes. Continuously moving, spiraling, throbbing, pulsating. I’m being carried on the finest vibrations. They touch me in every cell and every atom. What a massage! Did I ever feel better? I see the image of a wild river. A river of rainbows. Colours running like crazy. I was swapped of my feet and landed softly in the river. For a moment I was afraid of rocks but soon realised there was none. Joyfully I went along, I was carried gently on the tip of the waves. Sometimes the river would turn ugly. Full of worms, scorpions, broken glass. Little tests on the way. I feel great so they become no distraction. How I feel is more important then What I see! I am observing myself playing in the river. At the same time I observe the grid, the network! How it’s forming geometrical shapes out of nowhere. Like pulses. Pulsating with life force. While I’m carried lightly on the waves. One large geometrical shape starts to shine from its core. A beautiful white/yellowish light and visions of fields and mountains with open blue skies. I was looking at the ceiling of a mosque and a cathedral. Beautifully decorated. Demons and saints. But with roofs wide-open and blue sky above! The cathedral turned into an enormous treasure. Gold, diamonds and crystals. Shining bright. And filling the whole of the geometrical shape. The image of the treasure is changing from gold, diamonds and crystals to pure white light to golden coins and back. It seemed like the rainbow-river was absorbed by the light of the treasure. And I went with it. Carried swiftly on the waves and thrown gently into the treasure. For a beautiful moment I felt like Donald Duck’s rich uncle. Swimming in his money. Then the light took over. I saw light. I felt it all around me and inside of me. It’s vibration. I’m vibration! I’m touched soo deep. It’s like an orgasm on cellular and spiritual level. For this occasion the mental level is not of much use. It feels to me that the mind for most of it is absorbed by the senses, which are mostly focused on survival and moving around in the “normal world”. With my awareness or the observer inside of me. I can investigate and navigate my mind (like preparing a bungee-jump). I can overcome all fears. But even the observer becomes sort of detached when the final stage is entered. The stage of pure being. Pure love. Pure life force. Pure beauty. Here all my bodies are being held through the vitalizing vibrations that I have connected with on this mind-blowing journey! Being in this place feels like the ultimate home. Deep inside my mother. My deepest desire fulfilled! Her touch, her love, her warmth. I feel full of life and save. I shine! I’m receiving her gift. Her gift is faith !!! The gift of faith has always been difficult to accept. While it has always been an every-day lesson. I fight it in many ways. My mind is corrupting faith so often. My body reacting with fear. How did I ever ask for this gift? How could I know?! Did the snake know? No attachments to the body! Not to the ego and not to the mind. I am nowhere. I am here. I’m everywhere! I am receiving her gift with arms wide open. Her gift of faith. Just FAITH!! Because I remember I’m loved. The Dutch word for faith is: vertrouwen ver = far; trouwen = marriage. A far marriage! Some people call this a sacred marriage; A direct experience with the not yet known living force behind this illusionary spectacle!!!
