Trip Report: Falling out of Time itself

February 15, 2023

What happens when you ingest 10g of P. Semilanceata?

We’re pioneering adventurers who are looking for answers beyond the veil of the unknown. This is my recollection of that time when we traveled to “the other side” as a group in the Norwegian mountains.

Day 1: Arriving and Settling In

I picked up the participants for the retreat at the airport and headed to a plant-based restaurant in town to have an amazing lunch salad. The reason for it being a salad specifically was because we didn’t want our bodies to have to work a whole lot with digestion and other stuff during the ceremony, so we were very conscious about what we ate in the hours leading into it.

The Adventure Begins

Once we arrived at the foot of the mountain where we were staying, we realized that we had to walk to the cabin, carrying all of the luggage on our backs in a blizzard at night. It was a very exhausting, yet extremely fulfilling journey, and we soon realized that it set the tone for the ceremony we were about to undertake.

There’s something incredibly powerful in such an undertaking. In “normal” personal development programs, many will be told that in order to be a better version of themselves, they need to fill out forms and take courses to achieve things in our (digital) world. It’s something quite different to put yourself to the limit because you have to. And the reason is simple; If you don’t, you die.

I love situations like that. 

Planning to go to the gym every day to work out never appealed to me. Putting myself in a situation where I have to perform better, is very different. It feels a lot better, and you know that whenever you have to walk through a blizzard in the future, you know you can, because you didn’t die the first time you went through it.

Simple, yet amazingly effective.

Arriving at The Cabin

When we eventually arrive at the cabin grounds, the atmosphere is always filled with somewhat nervous energy as we prepare ourselves, because it requires a lot to go into the depths of our minds to consciously work to become better as people and leaders of our own reality.

As day 1 draws to a close, we have settled in, prepared firewood and water, arranged our beds, made some coffee, and we’re just sitting at the cabin table where we’re sharing thoughts and feelings about the upcoming big day.

Day 2: Ceremony Day

We wake up to the deafening silence of the Norwegian forest, far away from civilization, indoor plumbing and electricity. We make a fire in the firepan outside, where we boil water for coffee and make some oatmeal porridge. It felt like a good choice of food because it was nutritious, plant-based, and relatively easy to prepare.

After we’d been talking for a while and fully woken up to the day, we had to start preparations for the ceremony. We needed a fire, and we needed to go bring some goods from the car which was parked 2 kilometers away, at the foot of the mountain.

Bonfire Transfer

We decided to do what we call a standard “Bonfire Transfer”, where we picked up the fire we had already made and walked it over to the ceremony hut, where we started a bigger fire in the ornate furnace inside. Being in a dark room that is lit by fire only tends to do something to the experience. The silence will bring up deep thoughts, and the darkness will keep visuals to a minimum, so it has become the traditional place for holding the actual ceremony.

Once we were done, we headed out to get the remaining luggage, talking and singing as we walked. Once we arrived at the foot of the mountain, we were all pretty tired, so we sat in the car for a bit while waiting for our strength to return.

After the break, we loaded up and began the steep climb again, this time ready for the ceremony we’d initiate once we arrived back at camp. The walk was again fueled with conversation – in the beginning. Once we felt the familiar fatigue, everyone went silent and zoned out to the sound of 6 feet crunching snow as they marched to the top. The sound soon became a rhythm and we went into something of a walking meditation.

We approached the camp, and as if fueled by the Universe, the pace quickened, and I began jogging towards the cabin, pushing myself for the last piece of the journey.

I realized that this might have had an effect on how the medicine affected me. Being mentally and physically drained of energy allowed me to be filled anew, and it centered me even more than it normally does.

Preparing The Medicine

We prepared the medicine, which was a bigger dose than most had ever done before, but because we had done this before and studied this practice for so long, we knew we’d be safe. That’s the beauty of experience, I guess.

The three of us each made a dual extraction of 10g P. Semilanceata, AKA Liberty Caps. That means that we measured up 10g of dried medicine each, then added this to 250 ml water that held a temperature of about 40° Celcius. The reason for this temperature was to make sure we extracted the compounds without any harm to the medicinal compounds. We waited for about 20-30 minutes and occasionally stirred or shook the container so that it mixed well with the water.

Once 30 minutes had passed, we poured the extraction (the medicine water) into a new container – in my case, my ceremonial drinking horn. Then we added 250 ml of new, clean water to the 10g of medicine and repeated the process.

This left each of us with 500 ml of infused tea.

Going “Online”

As the medicine started to take effect, I realized that I had “come home” yet again. This normally happens to me during these ceremonies – the medicine simply allows me to be more of what I already am. There is also a very specific process that takes place in me personally; I tend to see something like a Human Design chart in my mind, and as all of my individual channels start lightning up and coming online, I hear very distinct “pops” in my head and my body, almost like my cells are acting like bubble wrap! I also feel them physically.

It’s a very interesting experience.

As I was “going online”, the other participants started feeling the medicine as well. Some saw visuals in their immediate surroundings, reacting to it with “Wow…” and not really able to comprehend what was going on without the reminder of them having medicine in their system. This is why I believe it’s so crucially important to have an experienced guide for beginner travelers. Those with experience “come home”. They rarely react negatively or are surprised by the experience, because they have become intimately familiar with how it affects them after having done a lot of deep work on themselves.

Being present

Because of this, I was able to truly be in myself, while also being there as an anchor and support for those around me. That means that when another participant is healing old wounds or going through trauma, they will always be reassured that everything is safe and that they are taken care of. And that is done mostly by simply being present. Often, no words are needed, because we’re all on the same frequency – we can more or less think to each other.

As the experience carried on, one participant went back to the cabin. The other one was still trying to find their place in the Universe and figuring out if they had lost their mind or not. He was in two or more places at once, so his mind was struggling to understand what was happening. I mustered every ounce of energy I had and got up to help him back to his path.

With some guidance and support, we all arrived safely back at the cabin where some went to bed and the rest stayed to talk in the coach.

This is where I noticed something… I had fallen out of time.

As I looked at the phone, it said 01:31 am. I kept looking at the phone as I helped the participant to his bed where he could safely do what needed to be done. I kept looking at the phone, and it never changed to 01:32…

I sat down in the living area and pondered what to do. The third participant kept saying “We’ll catch up tomorrow”. I knew that this was a very good idea, but I had no idea HOW to get to tomorrow. How would it ever be tomorrow when the clock stayed on 01:31 am??

I looked at the blazing fire in the fireplace. I looked back at the time. Still the same. I looked back at the fire… Dead. There were no more flames?! I looked back to the clock… 01:31 am… Then again back at the fire, which was now blazing again!

I figured that I have two things I need to do in this situation; be silent and be still. Simply wait. At some point, I would get back to the concept of time and I could figure out how to get to bed.

3600 years later

I finally saw time move again. It was past 02:00 am. I had returned. At this point, I started to take note of my environment and everyone in it.

The environment was so safe that one participant started to growl and scream at the top of his lungs. Not because he was “crazy”, but because he wanted to see how far he could push his voice. He works to become a singer/rapper, so he was on a journey to find his unique tone and voice. He did this for about 3-4 hours! Normally, people around such an event would react, and they would probably react in a way that could’ve made him feel bad for what he did, but not here. He could carry on as long as he wanted because we knew what he was thinking. We got this confirmed when he told us afterward with a very sore throat.

Many things happen during a ceremony, and it’s never the same because we all have different things to work through, but simply knowing that you’re safe, and that there are people there that will support you in your own personal journey is often enough for it to be a success every single time.

Day 3: Reflection

After such a ceremony, everyone is often very quiet, because they are reflecting on what happened the day before. Many will think that it only happened in their minds, so having others tell their version of the ceremony usually ends in laughter and surprise, when they realized that everyone experienced the same thing.

We spend the day focusing on nothing. Simply being. There is usually a guitar being played, some are reading, some are writing, some are sitting in nature by the fire, and everyone is overall just relaxing to the best of their ability while they reflect on their reality.

Questions are asked and questions are answered to the best of the guide’s and others’ ability and experience, and we do some mild integration. This is just to do a recap so that a seed is sown for the weeks after the experience. After a couple of weeks, we like to catch up again to see what the participants learned during the ceremony and the retreat as a whole.

We also do some light cleaning to prepare for the next day, when we will head back down the mountain and return to our lives in the “normal world”.

Day 4: Saying Goodbye

We wake up a little earlier on the last day, to make sure we get everything packed, clean up after ourselves, and make the area pristine for the next visitors. Then we load up and start heading off-camp.

The thing that always fascinates me, is the powerful impact that such an experience tends to have on the participants. Usually, we’ll all just walk in silence. There is no need for words because we were all there. We all went through a journey, and we all have thoughts to ponder. In my humble opinion, you haven’t had a successful retreat until you can walk for 2 kilometers in complete silence.

We drive back to the airport to drop off the participants, knowing that their lives will never be the same.

Such is the very rough overview of “The Tribe Experience”.


As I’ve been reflecting on this transformative experience for some time now, I have implemented many things to help as many people as possible see this medicine for its sacred power. Courses are in development, more retreats are being planned, networks are being built, and all of this is simply the beginning.

Our community – Tribe – gets access to everything we’re developing, as well as being supported through their own life adventure. It’s finally time to bring this to the world, so if you want to learn more about this medicine, and also learn how to create a life that holds 100% Freedom and Fulfillment, you can join Tribe and start your journey through the button below.

If you have any questions about anything in terms of psychedelics, personal development, spiritual development, or anything you can think of – ask, and our Tribe members might just be able to answer you.
