Seeing is Believing

You may still have questions and we couldn’t possibly answer them all here. You’re welcome to reach out to any of our team members or attend a ceremony to get any additional questions answered.

What is Temple of Eden's Sacrament

Our sacrament is 5-MEO-DMT, a powerful entheogen, or Divine Medicine. Also known as Bufo, it is the glandular secretion of Bufo Alvarius, the Sonoran Desert Toad.  We believe that Divine Love and Divine Intelligence surrounds us always! We have found, as did our ancient ancestors, that this most sacred medicine, this gift of the Toad, allows us the profound experience of transcending ego-illusion, allowing us to rise into the 12th dimensional Angelic Light plane and bringing us into the presence of the Divine Creation, Divine Love and Divine Intelligence.  This is our sacred Offering.

What will I experience when I take the sacrament?

Commonly the answer is “So beautiful can’t be put into words!”

A loss of words might be expected when visiting The Divine. Many people feel as if they’ve journeyed through the worlds of Gods, Buddhas, or Angels. Visionary hallucinations are rare, but people frequently report finding themselves surrounded by a field of vast fractal white light and feeling a comforting sense of unconditional love. On return to baseline consciousness nearly everyone reports a feeling that they have been healed in some way. Some report receiving Divine messages.

How do I prepare myself to take sacrament?

Refrain from sex 3-4 days prior ceremony.

Avoid for 7 days prior to ceremony:

  • Recreational drugs
  • Prescription drugs (3 days before) *
  • Alcohol
  • Meat
  • Spices
  • Violent entertainment
  • Sex
  • Nicotine
  • Pregnant women may not consume the Sacrament

*Note: Persons must not have Serotonin or MAO inhibitors, anti-depressants, or any kind of blood pressure medication in their bloodstream. It is not safe for people with high blood pressure, heart problems, lung problems or psychiatric issues to take the Sacrament. Everyone intending to take Sacrament will be having their blood pressure checked before the ceremony.

You say the Sacrament comes from a toad. Are they endangered?

Because Bufo Alvarius is the source of our Divine Sacrament, we not only care for them gently and carefully, but reverently. We believe the Toads are a Sacred emissary of the Divine Creator. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature Bufo Alvarius conservation status is Least Concern.

Why do we choose to use organic 5meo-DMT for our sacrament instead of synthetic?

We have found that many of those from the scientifically minded tribe have trouble understanding the spiritual aspects of our Bufo sacrament. We hold, from experience, that the spiritual elements of  entheogens cannot be deduced or created in a laboratory. Although we have the highest regard for the scientific tradition, our contention is that science’s brutal objective-materialist approach to truth seeking makes it ill suited to proffer opinions about spirituality. As has been acknowledged by a growing number of physicians, scientists and psychologists who have come to understand, through their subjective experience with the sacrament, the role that natural process plays in bringing us our sacred medicine. Our sacrament is more that just chemistry!

This brings us to the question of synthetic versus the natural form of 5-MEO-DMT; is there a difference? We believe that there is. The sterile, rarefied molecule produced in a laboratory no doubt produces an intense simulated experience of the sacrament, but we argue that this experience is akin to the difference between a photograph and actual natural sight. It is easy to be mesmerized by a vivid photograph, but it does not take the place of actual seeing. Our sacramental molecule evolved in nature for millions of years. And in particular, by the hibernation dreams of our chubby sacred toad friend, who before emerging from their ancient habit of sleeping beneath the ground for months on end in the earthy womb of Mother Nature, finally emerge with their sacred gift to us. The molecule is the product of the processes of life; evolved deep in the soil. The intelligence of life, we call Soul. And soul can only be experienced by an individual. Soul; the foundation of the person, with the medicine bearing a unique message to the soul of the person, as a mother nurtures the unique person that is her child, so does our sacrament to us. We believe it cannot be replicated in a laboratory, but can in an artificial form create a convincing but ultimately misleading false experience. 

Which we feel is important to say. 

Therefore, we hold that Spirituality is a force of nature, of the individual and of the Earth, which cannot as a sacrament be synthetically made. This is our steadfast belief. Here we stand.

What's the difference between public ceremonies and a private session?

The Temple of Eden offers two types of Ceremony—private and public.

Private ceremonies involve one to ten participants and are tailored for either the needs of a single participant or for a self-selected group of participants, such as a family or a circle of friends. Currently, all private ceremonies are being held as house calls and only in the following counties:

  • Los Angeles
  • Orange
  • Ventura
  • Riverside
  • San Bernardino.

As part of our future development plans, we are seeking to acquire a physical location to do all ceremonies, but until then, home arrangements will have to be made.

Private ceremonies are for those who require a closer interaction with Priestess Suzi Kalypso and her team, wishing for more time with personal integration and spiritual counseling. Private ceremonies are also ideal for people who wish to control the energetic dynamic of the session by choosing who will attend with them. A private ceremony is also highly recommended for people who have serious trauma backgrounds.

Public ceremonies are for those who seek a more communal and social experience. Our public ceremonies are open to all that medically qualify (most people). Public ceremonies provide a fellowship, community experience for connection and celebration of like-minded people. Creating a beautiful environment for group space holding and meeting people. Public ceremonies are often held outdoors in a pleasing natural environment. We begin each public ceremony with an amazing breathwork session.

One public ceremony is scheduled per month for up to twenty-five participants.

Free monthly integration zoom meetings are available to all participants.
