Dark Room Meditation/Therapy for DMT production is a practice that has been used for thousands of years by sages endeavoring to unlock the great mystery to life.

Looking for a drug-free, quick-fix, to having the most profound spiritual experiences available to man? Ever heard of dark room therapy or, as they call it in Thailand, dark room enlightenment?

This is an ancient practice where an initiate secludes oneself in pitch black darkness for up to fifteen days, in complete silence.

Many spiritual traditions have used Dark Room techniques in the pursuit of enlightenment. In Europe, the dark room often appeared in underground form as a network of tunnels, in Egypt as the Pyramids, in Rome as the catacombs, and by the Essenes, near the Dead Sea in Israel, as caves. In the Taoist tradition caves have been used throughout the ages for higher level practices. — Mantak Chia, Dark Room Enlightenment

According to the Taoists and master Mantak Chia,dark room practice stimulates the production of Dimethyltriptamine (DMT) in the brain, which causes transcendental states of altered consciousness, which manifests as feelings of universal compassion and eternal oneness.

DMT, also known as the “spirit molecule,” is a highly controversial compound that has been classified as an illegal drug worldwide.

The tribal natives of the Amazon ingest a brew called Ayahuasca which induces the body to experience the effects of DMT in waking consciousness. This practice connects their souls to the SPIRIT WORLD or, simply put, different dimensions beyond the veil we never see through in “waking consciousness”.

In the spirit world one can see your life from a perspective unimaginable from waking consciousness, where you have the chance to uncover and heal from the past (including past life traumas). The sacred concoction is mainly used for healing.

In the journeying state, as many call it, you have the opportunity to revisit scenes of your eternal nature as a soul and heal and retrieve fragments of your soul and the vital energy that has been lost throughout all your incarnations.

Ayahuasca is a drug that facilitates the healing process which should be done under the guidance of an experienced teacher who will keep you protected while time traveling.

Dark Room Therapy — 14 Days of Darkness

Yes, that is what it will take if you want to get in touch with eternity. Two weeks away from the existence that you have experienced since the day you have entered physicality.

No sense stimulation, nobody to speak to, nothing to listen to, zero visual stimuli, only a little bit of food and water, which you will need to survive the prolonged meditation.

If you fancy, you could fast the whole period and get even more out of the process — as you know, food fuels ego and mind and these get in the way when spiritual work needs to be done.

Darkness causes the brain to synthesize the molecule melatonin, which induces sleep and different modes of consciousness, through which subtler realities are experienced in the form of dreams.

The brain’s mechanism is to filter and shut off the flow of divine consciousness, making possible survival on Earth, but obscuring all transcendental realities. Dark Room meditations remove the obscurations. The inhibitory functions of the brain are lifted, and we revel in the experience of Oneness, Wu Chi, the Original Source.

Day 1-3

The magic of the dark room experience is that after about three days in darkness there is so much of a buildup of melatonin in the brain that dreams are experienced in waking consciousness, due to the brain mainly being in the theta frequency which is, essentially, the dream state.

You experience visions and see the workings of the subconscious mind more clearly than ever before and, more importantly, you become more lucid and exhibit more control in the astral realm than ever before.

Day 3-5

It is said that after about three days, once melatonin levels have reached specific levels (15-20mg), the pineal gland starts producing the superconductor pinolene. The Pinolene stage is normally activated during lucid dreaming on near-death-experiences.

This stage is said to allow us to become extremely aware — aware of the external hologram that we consistently create in our head.

Clairsentience and clairaudient powers are also activated during this triggering. Mantak Chia goes as far to say that a decoding of DNA is initiated, which causes the attraction of cosmic particles from the universe, decoded in the form of sound, light, knowledge and realization.

You literally become a ‘conductor’ for the universal energy, which is believed to be magnified by being in a natural cave, surrounded by earth energy that holds the memory of all of time.


Day 6-8

At this stage the pineal gland starts to produce the neuro-hormone 5-MeO-DMT(5-methoxy-dimethyltryptamine). 5-MeO-DMT switches on 40% more of the cerebral
cortex and awakens the nervous system to become aware of itself; ‘beingness’ results. 5-Meo-DMT discharges the darkness from the darkroom. A bright light is activated and one experiences a born-again mentality. This Great White Light, the manifestation of the astral body, enables the self to project externally(astral projection).

Day 9-12 (DMT Stage)

When DMT levels reach more than 25 mg, one’s experience can become very visual. DMT is the visual third eye neurotransmitter. It enables the energy body and spirit to journey into hyperspace, beyond third dimensional realms of time and space. It is intensely energizing.

“After some 10-12 days one starts to see in infra red, and ultra violet, one can actually run across the room and touch a person, by seeing their heat patterns. The Holon Images exteriorize and one is walking in a Virtual Reality, which appears to be the DNA language macro uploaded, and interactive!”

“When you reach the ‘DMT state’ you begin to function consciously from the various psychic centers or chakras. The bodily processes of ‘Healing Love’ are then combined with those of the Dark Room. The human states of true compassion and sexual arousal create a new chemistry and a new vibration within the body. This ‘special’ vibration occurs at a frequency of 8Hz.

‘As in the macrocosm, so it is in the microcosm’; hence if we make love, then all the cells and DNA actually make love as well. The DNA crosses over, like two serpents intertwining in an erotic embrace. You need the orgasmic vibration to arouse this crossover process which leads to the ‘two giving birth to three’; the conception of new cells. The two vital states are compassion and arousal leading to orgasm. Both are inextricably linked to love.

(Clarification: it is not said that you have to reach orgasm with another person, this comes by itself, by the vibration elevation that is reaching.)

“When this ‘love-vibration’ reaches the pineal gland a new hormone is produced, which in turn creates whole body conductivity. Only when you feel the waves of orgasmic vibration and unconditional love for the self and others can the process be activated and the essence of the darkroom is magnified.

From a taoist perspective the benefits of dark room therapy are probably the largest leaps a person can make in terms of spiritual evolution, and all that you require is a cave or a dark setting where you can remain for two weeks undisturbed.

As you can see, even five days of darkness already have plenty of benefits. Those who suffer from insomnia can especially benefit from the process, as melatonin levels get a chance to return to healthy levels.

The senses and the mind also get a valuable chance to recuperate from the constraints of everyday reality. Dark room therapy can rejuvenate a person tenfold more than a vacation can, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Those that deny the validity of dark room therapy without even considering trying it, are those that are too afraid of what they may find out about themselves in the dark.

For those who practice it regularly, it is of the most spiritually significant stepping stones in their lives.

  1. Jasmuheen, is a fake. I did one of her 21 day fasts with a Brisbane couple, 7 days with no water. They were later charged when one woman died. She was on 60 min and had a doctor monitor her and her health deteriorated after just about four days of fasting so they had to stop. Her excuse was that the prank in the city was not pure enough.

  2. Oh Thank you all. Thanks Peter. I know about Jasmuheen and have her book. But I also know I would not make it for now. I live alone for about five years because of truth, and food is one of my limited ‘pleasures’. A future plan.

    And Rene: why did your darkroom retreat last 45 days? Was that your own choice or for a certain purpose…? Could you give some advice for people considering something similar please?

  3. Maria
    Jasmuheen is one who teaches about living on Prana. She has been living her teachings for many years and has developed Dark room retreats that incorporate juice diets and fasting.

  4. More power to those who can do this. Not for me. I would need paper and pen to download my thoughts ( or maybe a tape recorder) and some exercise. Thankfully,
    there are alternatives to this to reach those states ( drug free). There is never just one way to accomplish things. Creative visualization, “spiritual exercises” are endless. I prefer to hold the truth that everything is within my divine right and within my power and that I already exist in higher awareness, and it is more about removing levels of blockages. Empowerment is at our fingertips if we can get ourselves to an inner state of love, certainty, intention and playful creativeness.

  5. I have done a darkroom retreat 30 years ago as part of my training. It was 45 days, leading up to a period of being neither death nor alive, as my teacher called it. This was a Daoist training where a preset group of different meditations were performed to achieve a desired result.
    Friends introduced me with DMT and ayuasca, but their effects were not the same. In fact they sort of conflicted with Daoist meditation.
    The darkroom practice I have Done still inspires my work.

    • I have this idea that the ideal darkness retreat is 49 nights (7 nights for each chakra to be cleansed) water fast, followed by 3 days of a dry fast… your comment about being neither death or alive resonates with this idea because as you reach night 49 and then transition to 3 days of dry fasting (which could be the whole analogy of Jesus spending 3 nights in a tomb before rising)… you are essentially experiencing ‘death’ although it would probably be known as a literal ascension into higher dimensions, what happens after that is beyond my comprehension… we could literally leave this plane of existence with our whole light body intact, or we could have one really interesting story to share once we exit the cave… either way it is something I feel drawn to 🙂

  6. Thanks. So we can ‘almost’ touch it. Constant darkness would be a problem. I wonder about stopping eating, also a process of 14 days I thought. What would that do to a body…
