Tree trip with Marcel
My previous experience with mushrooms was party/fun oriented but I had a deep feeling that there’s so much more that psychedelics can offer.
I’ve contacted Triptherapy through WhatsApp and very quickly made some arrangements. All the questions I’ve asked were answered thoroughly and faster than I knew I was marching with a stranger to take drugs in a nature setting .
I was guided by Marcel on a mild 2-3 level trip and my intention for that trip was to spend time with myself and be there just for me.
Beginning of my trip was very visual and my main focus was on a beautiful, psychedelic tree I was laying under. It was really an amazing tree! But Marcel was able to help me to direct my thoughts inwards.
I felt safe and tasks care of. I felt like a little paper boat on calm waters and the trip sitter was making gentle waves next to me to guide me to my realisations.
I was filled with gratefulness, love, relief and forgiveness for my own doings and those feelings are still present with me.
The only thing I would change is better preparation from my side – I am more than sure that if I’d focused on meditation, setting specific intention and diet/supplements my experience would be even deeper.
I would like to thank Triptherapie and Marcel for new perspectives, drinkable honey mushroom tea, your wisdom and the cucumber trick for nausea.
I am certain that this experience was a first step towards my new, more aware and significant life and I highly recommend everyone to try mushrooms with Marcel .
Can’t wait for next trip or a retreat!
Tripping and bloackages in the subconscious mind
Anyway, the trip. It was a very intense start in which my body/mind system had to go through dark layers. Lots of nausea and feverish tunnel layers my body had to go through. All emotions/blocks in the subconscious were lived in the now at the same time. It seemed that everything had to be enlarged so that it could process itself and disappear from the system.
The next level was the sentence question on who I am. This was very confusing, shifting my consciousness from dimenties to dimenties. This was also where ‘dark’ influences came in that probably wanted to stop it. Even Marcel was used for this. Sorry Marcel maybe it’s because of my background that it went this way. Or maybe it’s because of films that got stuck in the subconscious.
In the end the ikje came loose from duality and ended up in spheres as unfounded where there is no word to mention. Absolute nothing and everything at the same time if I have to give it a reference. I had the feeling that from here you can discover even deeper layers and wisdom. I noticed that only concentration and other influences threw a spanner in the works.
All in all, almost a week on. Live everything in a slow motion and understand everything that happens from a wholeness consciousness with little time awareness. work went well for me as well. Live in the moment and get situations when I think of something.
Tips I can give you: Make sure your intention is clear beforehand. Environment, setting is also important. Music and smells etc.. These are factors that can disrupt the trip if you are very deep. At least that was my experience.

My inner journey
The whole thing took place in a self-built wooden cabin, which was perfect for a two-person session with my good friend Steven.
In front of the cabin was the Circle of Power that made it even more special. It was demarcated with rocks and natural stones. In the center was a beautiful-looking rock crystal.
After a nice tour on the domain of Arjan, and admiring his authentic Mongolian tent, and chatting together, it was time for the trip.
We first took our delicious MAO inhibitor with the taste of ambrosia and raspberries (NOT!), The drink was disgustingly bitter and I imagine licking a cactus would feel even more pleasant. But well, it is worth it!
We lay down in our sleeping bags while Arjan lit the fireplace (cozy!). I soon went into a trance that made me feel very comfortable and happy, although I didn’t go very deep. It felt more like a lucid dream.
After 2 hours Stendert woke me because it was time for the second shot of the Gods drink.
We sat down in the Circle of Power and told each other’s experiences. As I looked at the crystal in the center of the circle, I saw it change from clear to milky white, pulsating like a beating heart, but much slower.
I said to Steven what I saw, and I expected a burst of laughter, and I saw he was ready for that, until he looked and shouted in amazement that he saw it too. We asked Arjan and Stendert if they saw it, but they answered coolly that they had not been drinking the Gods drink.
According to them, it was a sign that we should lie down again. Immediately I felt how the physical purification was started in the form of abdominal cramps. I struggled to squeeze my butt because I felt I was leaving every moment, and sure enough, with the speed of a rabbit on steroids, I was sucked into the other dimension.
To the music of karunesh, more specifically the song Moola Mantra, my journey started. I was drawn into a world very similar to ancient Egypt we know from movies and documentaries.
Only what happened was a completely different story. In this dimension, worlds were created to the tones of music and Mantras.
More specifically, the Mantras that originated in that song. I also started singing along as if it was my job, and it went completely by itself. I followed the flow of the other Gods present and built entire landscapes. It was then that I realized that I myself was the creator of my own world, that I can create anything I want.
That I actually discovered God in myself and that there were no limits for me anymore. It was terribly scary to be pulled out of my body and into a dimension that I didn’t know I would ever return to, and the idea of never seeing my family and friends again made me very sad. Yet I realized deep down that I was receiving a lesson here that would drastically change my life.
Also the realization that everything consists of sound and tones did not surprise me. It seemed as if I had always known that it was woven into my DNA. When I started to return from that dimension a bit and I floated between two worlds, I saw my guide Stendert standing next to me. He just said with his compassionate smile: “Now go inside yourself and take a good look around at the beautiful things you can see there.”
The moment he said that I disappeared in my body. What I saw made me so much pleasure and happiness: only love and purity, worlds in worlds, infinity. The realization that I am God of my own body, my inner God.
Of course, many more things happened that I can bring to my mind again while I played the matching music again, but they are guaranteed to surface more clearly later.
I did not sleep after the trip yet and try to write down everything I remember, but I now know from experience that after days, weeks and even months, memories of the trip can still arise.
That was the trip itself in a nutshell, but the effect I feel afterwards is almost impossible to describe.
A feeling of intense happiness, unconditional love for everything and everyone, a serenity that I have not felt for a long time, and especially inner peace and tranquility. Apparently it is three times right, and I have now had the most beautiful and life-changing psychedelical experience.
A must for anyone who wants to discover himself and his inner world and wants to continue with an awareness of an eternally existent soul.
Ending with a bit of surreptitious advertising: let Stendert and Arjan guide you, because they make it a great experience .
Truffle ceremony after ayahuasca
I myself have a lot of experience with various ayahuasca ceremonies and truffle use, but this was very special! Good prior preparation with the right questions from Marcel ensures that you dig a little deeper into your subconscious. Marcel has a lot of knowledge about truffle use and human psyche. This complementary with personal attention and empathy results in a unique instructive trip therapy!
A good guidance during my psychedelic journey
He offers a safe environment and has enough knowledge to be able to advise in many areas.
With him you can grow as a human being by being inspired in several ways, when it comes to sports, nutrition or making a spiritual trip, Marcel can help you with that.
I am a pleasant experience richer and strengthened in my path.
Do as I say and be enriched!
Beautifull and safe place
Manu and Stendert, I am grateful for my second psychedelic experience. You have given us a trusted and safe environment with your sweet care in a beautiful and appropriate environment in the forest house. Love, Danielle
Truffle trip level 3-4
The aromatherapy and perfect music made it a very nice trip and Marcel sat there quietly and asked some questions every now and then.
I suffered from depressive complaints and they have become so much less, I started to exercise more, eat healthier and more conscious, meditate and am much more active.
I’m definitely going to do another truffle therapy, although I’m also curious about that other option .
it’s changed my life, I can’t tell enough people. They always ask me if I have shares
My psychedelic psilocybin trip in Haarlem
With all thanks to Marcel. He has prepared me in an excellent way for – and guided me during the trip.
Throughout my life, a single question has been and still is central; who am I really and what is consciousness? I have always felt that these so-called unanswerable questions can only give a satisfactory response if you dare to equate the human imagination at least with the superpowerful outer sense. With paintings, poems and dramatic philosophical texts I have tried (and continue to try) to express the imagination of deep cosmic connectedness. In addition, a youth trauma plays a role as a means of pressure to depict (and experience) a deeper origin of consciousness and reality. Questions of meaning such as traumatic experiences have always made me curious about means of expanding my consciousness. The use of weed also helps me to better express my imaginations.
I just take a throw and say that 80 percent of the trip can’t be grasped. That leaves me 20 percent to describe. Immediately after the trip I wrote down a thread of impressions in keywords. My trip experience follows the music playlist of Marcel’s mobile phone, his scent diffusers and his rotating light/color nozzle.
Here’s my report in rough terms. Then I make an attempt to formulate what I have learned from it or become wiser.
A continuous pulsing of beautifully coloured and undulating form fields that then swell up again and then diminish again. Fields filled with unfathomable figures and signs that continuously divide, merge, separate and then merge again etc. A rhythmic pumping and swirling of liquid velvet textures in brilliantly changing colour streams with orgasmic fountains of scarlet and ultraviolet. These alternating currents contract and ripen open. Then an infinite spine of reptiles emerges from a bottom of rows of teeth that fade away again. I see the dying dragon passing into the face of mercy. What a majesty in a procession of flared colours, a cosmic parade of forms groping for their birth. They yearn to be born. In palaces, princes and princesses are cast in gold and purple and then eaten and swallowed up in the eternal cycle of digestion. I see you womb, mother of healing, mother of primal mating in your sacred confirmation of purple.
A short rest in the pulsating fields. Then a new unrest begins. On the big board game satyr and clowns appear – Micky Mouse-like figures with mean grimaces. Then insects crawl into restless crevices and fish and snakes hurry away. The contours of the swaying pink carmine field change into a sharply increasing palette of shades of brown and dark green. Something new is looming. Once again everything is swallowed up by a large monster that then dissolves again and transforms into new formations of gracious shapes. The cycle keeps repeating itself in this way: golden children are transformed into beasts, swallowed and digested etc.
I interpret the trip I made as an encounter with the history of my own body that is, of course, a body like any living being. Presumably the trip offers the possibility to unlock the oldest part of the brain (the reptile brain). My digestion and spine formed the framework through which evolution unfolded to me filmically (in partial visions). I have witnessed the horrible beast of which I am and am part. But I have experienced in the experience of this trip that this enormous beast (evolution) is at the same time the deepest grace and possibility for further growth.
The day after the trip I decided to take a walk through Haarlem. I was not planning to visit Teylersmuseum. Yet I walked there spontaneously. Before I realized it, I stood eye and eye with essentials from the trip: fossils, skeletons, shells etc. I was particularly touched by the so-called ammonite. Unconsciously I draw and paint this form all my life. How happy I am my new ammonite consciousness.
A few days after the trip I made a painting (crucifixion 26) in which I incorporated my organic adventure. You can find it on my account on Instagram.

2 x Truffle ceremony with Marcel as a depression treatment and against my anxiety
Anyway, this time I made an appointment with him again – and managed to keep it in spite of my panic. He ended up being a super sweet and patient guy, and tried to settle my fears. I felt totally safe and comfortable, and it ended up being a really fun trip and a great first experience. His tea was pretty good and just relaxed me ( which is pretty much what I needed ). My anxiety has dropped by over half ever since that trip, so seems like truffles definitely helps with calming you down. My depression symptoms are still around, which is why I decided to do a second trip within a week, but for whatever reason that trip didn’t go as well for me. Marcel had asked me to wait for a couple weeks himself. I also didn’t use his tea for this one – just the truffles. I had spoken to other trip sitters, who said the gap didn’t matter so much , because of which I proceeded. I have just learned that many users can have a dip in mood for a week or two after the use of psychedelics, and I have a feeling that must have been the case with me as well. So I think I should have waited until I was in a better frame of mind. My only issue was that I wish he had been a bit more aware that some people might feel a dip in mood after a trip and there are supplements that can help with that. But I think perhaps no one trips as close together, so maybe it doesn’t affect others as much. However, he respected my boundaries even while I was having not as good a trip. His emergency sugar drink helped end it sooner. He also drove me back home so I wasn’t wandering around in public transport feeling not so great. I felt totally safe during my trips and knew he could be relied upon.
So, I pretty much chose to trip with Marcel because he was patient, understanding and a caring and trustworthy person – he handled the situation well even when I went off the rails a bit. That really reassured me and mattered a lot to me. Plus, I truly appreciated that he didn’t judge me for my paranoia and understood my hesitations about being around a male trip sitter after my traumatic experience. He tried to, in his own way I think, make me a bit more comfortable around strange men again and I do appreciate that. I only think that he should also focus on post-trip supplements as much as pre-trip ones ! But I would trip with him again, and definitely use his tea over just plain truffles !

Psiloflora Trip Therapy
The advice I received has been very beneficial to me. Good healthy food, exercise and supplements had made me feel good about myself.
My intention was clear and discussed with Marcel.
Marcel’s explanation and attention was appreciated and was clear. He knows a lot about the workings of the substances in the brain and how to regulate them.
It is a holistic, individual approach.
Personally I found it very pleasant that the contact was 1 to 1 and at my home. I noticed that I was quickly distracted at group ceremonies. One time alone was pleasant.
Although there is a lot possible with trip therapy and I wouldn’t shy away from a group ceremony the next time. The room in Schiedam looks very attractive.
Marcel’s presence is pleasant and I haven’t felt unsafe for a moment. This ensured that I had a pleasant quiet trip.
Together with Marcel decided to do a high dose of truffles with passion flower; psiloflora.
From the outside little seemed to happen but on the inside it was an infinite space where I have been in many places. Once in a while Marcel guided me back where I wanted to focus my attention. He also made me think, even after the trip. A good conversation with me just wasn’t in it. I didn’t get what was happening in my brain translated into words.
My trip touched beautiful places in myself but I certainly also enjoyed the colours, visuals and connections of the universe.
The smells (even though they were limited due to the presence of a cat. Whatever Marcel had picked out nicely) were a nice addition to the trip. One of which he can be proud and, as far as I know, he is the only one offering.
Also the colours and the music were well chosen.
After the trip there was also contact to find out how I experienced it and how I am doing.
Triptherapy with Marcel is absolutely recommended.
Psychedelics show again what you are made of and how magical you, the world and the universe are.
Review psilocybin ceremony as therapy
I’ve been reading up on psilocybin as a medication for the treatment of depression. Marcel uses a holistic approach, through healthy food, the right supplements and sufficient exercise, the best results are achieved during the trip. And this holistic approach worked well for me, eating healthier food in combination with the supplements already gave me a more vital feeling prior to the trip. During my psychotherapy I never paid attention to this, but it is really effective.
The approach of the trip was trip level 5, but in the end it became a trip level 3-4. Every body reacts differently to psilocybin and I have learned that my body needs a slightly higher dose to reach level 5. However, this did not detract from the trip, I have gained some nice insights from the process. It is literally a journey, first it slowly became more and more difficult to formulate thoughts, then it became more and more difficult to come to words and finally I came into contact with my unconscious. The genius is that your subconscious knows where your difficulties and wounds are, what needs attention and where the healing should take place. My subconscious brought me into contact with myself as a very small child, at a time when I was not yet saddled with thoughts, the feeling of having to, condemnation and punishment. As a very small me I was able to experience feelings of sorrow, relief, joy, wonder in a pure form, without words, without thoughts, without judgments. I couldn’t really remember that little me, that feels like life ago. The little me was happy and happy, outside, in nature, on the beach, in the playground, playing with his friends and sister. This little boy loved life, could also be sad, but could also be comforted, his feelings were adaptive and not stuck like in my depressions. This showed me a path that I now understand on a feeling level, a bliss in habituality, more being outside, more playing. A question I have been asking since the trip for the first time in my life: what does the tiny little me feel like? I don’t know exactly yet, but I’m going to pay a lot of attention to this in the time to come!
The contact with Marcel before and after the trip was very pleasant. I also found Marcel to be very knowledgeable as a trip coach. I felt safe during the trip, I was extremely vulnerable and this was taken care of by Marcel in soft hands. This unconditional positive approach was pleasant, it gave me the space to really turn inside out. Marcel assisted me when things got difficult for me during the trip and took good care of me. I am glad that we were able to make this trip together, thank you Marcel!
More energy and trust of intuition
I have not received a direct answer, but instinctively my internal energy management has been recalibrated. And I have the impression that blockades have been released.
I experienced it as very pleasant. Stendert exudes peace and confidence, which has helped me a lot during such a first ceremony.
He also clearly stated what we could and could not expect. The ceremony was part of a personal development / coaching process and less of a spiritual affair. His personal stories and experiences have also helped me to better place the information from the ceremony.
I have more energy and trust my intuition even more. And can put things into perspective better. To what extent is it difficult to indicate. I am happy with the fact that there are changes.
The fact that Stendert is flexible is in space, so that the cermony could also be covered at our home was very nice for us. His presence felt very familiar and he is really working to make the process an added value for us.
For me it was very good and well worth the money. So keep it up.
Experience truffle session
Because I recognized that it plays a big role between the ears, I followed all kinds of trajectories for this. Doing Yoga, meditation, visiting therapists, etc. But also here without a lot of success, which made me pretty ‘treat tired’ after four years of struggle. In my last trajectory I was referred to TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome) The theory behind it is that the body has pain as a distraction to something between the ears. In itself I do believe in this theory, however, I find it difficult to get to the deeper psychological layers in a ‘normal’ situation. This is due to my own treatment fatigue and resistance to theories that are brought as if they come straight from the bible. Theories that, according to the therapists, can work miracles whenever you believe in them. I certainly believe that ‘believing’ can do a lot to a human being, but I couldn’t bring myself to dig so deep into my ‘past’.
The truffle therapy has helped me to overcome the barriers and discover the deeper layers in my brain within a few hours. (and they weren’t always beautiful) No idea what kind of gibberish I have been talking about but what I do remember is that Marcel asks the right questions at the right time to make sure I stayed on the path. It didn’t quite land directly with me but now, two days later, I am very happy that I started this adventure. The physical complaints didn’t disappear immediately but mentally I feel a lot better. Who knows, maybe my body will follow my mental state soon.
You can follow so many therapies, do trainings and read books but in my experience there is nothing that confronts you with yourself in such a short time. Just as with the last mentioned (trainings, therapies, etc) you really should determine the effect yourself and hold on to it, but the start is there.
Thank you Marcel for your calm and professional guidance.
What an amazing experience it was. I’m still processing it. Partly because of your good care, everything was taken care of down to the last detail and in its place. Just great!
Life is so much better now than it was before. I can’t thank Marcel enough for this. You showed me what I needed to see. Thank you so much!
I just wanted to say that I’m so grateful that I met you, and grateful for all the knowledge you gave me, Sten!
Psychedelic journey in the Psychedelic Loft in Schiedam
In the beginning I saw beautiful statues, lots of colours and geometric figures, but at one point these statues switched to skulls and nasty little figures. I was relieved that this happened quickly and that I could indeed send it myself. I see this as fear that can be overcome.
The lonely, sad little man I saw caused me a lot of grief. I saw myself sitting down. This too went by and then immediately afterwards I experienced an intense fit of laughter with afterwards tears of happiness. An emotion I never felt before.
Afterwards, a lot of amazement at what was coming at me. Hindu gods, the globe on the painting that became 3 dimensional, man woman element, yin yang.
In the sad painting the colours alternated.
And then on the blue painting I experienced a lot of rest. I saw fish, babies, Santa Claus, religious figures, antiquity, Greek or Romanesque text.
It was a rollercoaster of impressions and emotions.
What I’m getting out of it for myself:
-everything will be all right
-focus on the positive
-you can steer by yourself
-there’s more to this world than what you see.
-it’s what it is, let what needs to be done happen.
-I still feel
-difference between knowing and feeling
-Art is important
-feeling that a burden has been lifted from me, I’m experiencing peaceful rest
-At the moment there are almost no thoughts, and if they do come, they’re gone immediately. (Should be the effect of meditation) I am happy to feel it and hope I can hold on to it.
Maybe all clichés, but I’ve felt them
I’m so glad I made this trip!
Thanks, and if I want to experience this again, I know where to go.

Stopped smoking after 20 years, 2nd session with Marcel
A month ago I quit drinking alchohol and last Friday I had another ceremony with Marcel and this time it was all about quitting smoking, and I did it!
Marcel knows how to feel me very well and says things during the trip that influence you positively and stay in your thoughts, I never thought I could stop smoking and tried to quit before we started the ceremony (just like I did with alchohol and also worked) only smoking didn’t work out and put out my last cigarette the morning before we started.
The ceremony is so incredibly powerful that I believe you can do almost anything you want, the most important thing is that you have to respect it, believe and love it, so you won’t disappoint it and get rid of your addictions.
I will continue to give updates and honestly say how everything is going to go and if someone still reads and has questions you can always ask something.
The trip itself was even better than the previous one, the tea marcel makes is delicious and gives incredible hallucinations and a nice feeling, he has a lot of experience and knows how to make you feel at ease.
Next ceremony I’m going to plan again and see how far this can take me and other goals we can achieve together!
Keep you guys updated!

Marcel as a safe space tripsitter
Marcel provided a safe space for me to allow myself to explore an inner conflict I have been struggling with regarding my career and life direction. Marcel was very understanding of my need for privacy, but was also readily available to help out when necessary. He also provided me with useful advice regarding nutrition and exercise
