1500 BC

1500 BC Europe’s most famous initiation rites are the `Mysteries of Eleusis`. Honoring the grain goddess `Demeter` and her daughter `Persephone`, pilgrims walk from Athens to Eleusis. Here they receive a drink known as `Kykeon`, a psychoactive beverage containing Ergot (Mutter- or motherkorn) a mushroom parasite on rye. Homer praises the utterly purifying experience in a hymn as well as the initiants Cicero & Pinar.
