We are excited to present a unique once-off ceremony experience of the Ancient Egyptian version of Ayahuasca held in the Wake Circle tradition. On special occasions, when available, we like to bring in unique and special plants that are different from what we usually use in our usual ceremony brews. These medicines allow us to focus on specialized areas of healing and awakening such as dealing with shamanic initiations, romantic or family relationships, addiction, generational or personal trauma, or connecting to ancestors and guides.
Please note:
These specialty ceremonies are specifically tailored for experienced traveler wanting to explore deeper into different realms of medicine and as such is not recommended for first timers.
Acacia: The Tree of Life
With many breakthroughs in the sciences that explore our ancient past we now know that DMT was also used in Ancient Egypt. Although the plants used to produce ayahuasca are not native to Egypt, DMT containing plants can be found all over the world. The Acacia bush is one such plant that is well known throughout Egypt as the Tree of Life.
The plant has an incredible history and is considered sacred in Judeo-Christian and Ancient Greek history.
It was said in legend that if Acacia talks to you, it will never lie.
In Egyptian hieroglyphs it is the “Eye of Rah.” This drawing is very similar to a transversal cut of the pineal gland, which is also known as the Third Eye. This is thought by many to be responsible for dreams, the meditative state and even near death experiences.
Looking back on ancient Hindu artwork, there are many commonalities with modern psychedelic art. DMT might have been responsible for this because there are many DMT containing plants found in India. The same can be said for a lot of the breath taking art found in mosques in Iran.
Acacia trees are all over the Nile area of Egypt and so are Syrian Rue plants, so the materials for creating a DMT/Harmala combination would have been very easy for anyone who knew about plant chemistry and extraction. Acacia was revered as very holy in Ancient Egypt and is revered in the Holy Bible and Torah and Talmud. The Ark of the Covenant was build from Acacia wood, then covered in Gold. The Ark of King Tut was also made from Acacia and would have been identical to the Covenant Ark, except it was not covered or plated in Gold.
The sacramental brew that we will be used in this ceremony has a incredible history in religions and mystic schools.
I highly suggest you watch this movie or read some of these links if you would like to know more
It is also my favourite plant medicine by far.

General Info
We will be in a new venue, the Sun Temple on the edge of the mountain overlooking the Welcome Glen valley. This is a beautiful sacred space which, in the past has housed many transformative plant medicine journeys.
What makes these overnight ceremonies truly special is the safe, loving communal energy we create and the delicious meal and deep conversations shared afterwards. We all sleep in the ceremony room and then conclude the morning as always with a short breath-work and meditation integration session and a nourishing organic breakfast so that we start the new day invigorated. The venue is also close to Glen Cairn beach so a refreshing ocean swim is highly recommended on your return.
Spaces are limited and this ceremony is booking up very fast. Email us at info@wakecircle.com to book.
