On the solstice of 21 June 2022, in the magical forests of Murhalla, near where Xarfugia has its roots, a Waardstoel celebration took place, in the presence of Amanita Chanter and Sage Martinus. Eight sages were present at the celebration, six of whom had never taken the Waardstoel before.
From my communication with the mushroom and the trees it became clear that the Waardstoel is not very keen on the word ‘ceremony’ and prefers to leave out the cerebral and priestly aspects and to see the Waardstoel given a ‘viering’ (celebration), because a viering is close to the original intention of this magical drink and the stiff, ceremonial aspect does not belong to this mushroom.
That is why Amanita Chanter, Sage Wendy and Sage Pieter have come together to organise a celebration during the Solstice 2022. Eight participants, six of whom made their first acquaintance with this mushroom. Amanita Chanter had brewed an ambrosia that turned out to be quite potent, and so the celebration started and it indeed turned out that this is the right setting for the proper working of this ancient medicine. The final report will follow later, including the experiences of the various sages, but here are some photos of the joyful celebration:
I’ll wait for the reports from all the participants, but I can already report that this new set-up
created a shared assemblage point as I have never witnessed before using active-spirited means.
An extensive report will follow shortly, but may I already wish everyone a wonderful
new year, with lots of love and with great celebration.
