A Life Changing Experience

This Retreat Is For You If:

  • You’ve tried talk therapy and other traditional methods, but you still feel stuck.
  • You’ve been curious about exploring plant medicines as an option to healing.
  • You’ve explored plant medicines but want to build a deeper relationship with them.
  • You’re craving community and connection with like-minded people in a non-judgmental setting.
  • You highly value personal development and are ready to take the next step.
  • You crave adventure and an intimate experience. 
  • You’re ready to disconnect from the daily grind so you can reconnect with nature.
  • You’re in transition and you’re looking for a reset and more clarity.
  • You’re feeling apathetic and you’d like to feel a spark again.
  • You’re feeling highly anxious and you’d like to learn ways to calm the mind & body.

Our Commitment

Since integration is the key to translating meaningful insights into daily action, we provide all attendees with pre and post one-on-one sessions. We offer suggestions to prepare your mind, body, and spirit to maximize this experience as well as offer a follow up session for any insights that arise post ceremony.

In order to keep the integrity of the group, we pre screen everyone and require an in-depth soul session to get to know every attendee’s background and needs for support before deciding if this retreat is the right fit.

In the spirit of a holistic approach, we have curated a schedule that not only allows for a connection with the plant medicines, but also with other healing modalities: movement, breath, herbs, music, dance, tantric rituals as well as integration at the beach and surrounding nature.

In service of keeping the space sacred, we intentionally select medicine men and women with whom we have previously worked with whose practices are in alignment. This includes our chef who prepares our bodies for these medicines and our Shamans who prepare us for a journey with Mother Aya.

To provide attendees with additional tools post ceremony, we have interwoven two workshops into the retreat: ‘Inner Child’ and ‘Befriending Your Nervous System.’

We are teachers just as much as we are students. Not only are we clinically trained and trauma-informed, we also have experience in the Shamanic realms. As we continue to conduct our own retreats, we also work in the field with our mentor and Shaman Taheera Ma’at through her Ecology of Shamanism program.

Disclaimer

Many drugs and prescription medications are not compatible with plant medicines. It is essential to speak to your doctor first and give your system sufficient time to remove any substance from your body. This includes SSRIs, antihistamines, decongestants, asthma inhalers, etc. For your safety, if you are taking prescription medications, are pregnant, have a heart condition or chronic high blood pressure, we will not be able to accommodate you for the retreat.

KAMBO

Kambo carries the essence of the warrior and is used for purification and detoxification. We begin with this ancient frog medicine to reset the body. Research has shown that this medicine is loaded with all kinds of powerful biopeptides and Kambo has been used for many years to help with chronic pain, depression, eczema, anxiety, fertility and infections and colds.

PSILOCYBIN

Psilocybin opens up the heart space and often brings about a deeper connection with oneself. It carries the essence of love and has been proven to interrupt patterns of anxiety,  depression and obsessive compulsive disorder. These magic mushrooms have been used in ancient rituals for more than 10,000 years  due to their ability to alter consciousness and trigger mystical experiences.

HAPÉ

Hapé is the preparation of medicinal herbs with sacred tobacco. A small amount of the grounded powder is administered through a pipe into the nose after which the opening and revitalizing effects are felt. Hapé also helps to purify your system, strengthens your immunity while also helping you to ground yourself into a calm and centered space.

AYAHUASCA

Ayahuasca is known as the Grandmother of the plant world because it’s like a mother that heals you with her love, but also offers her truth and lessons. It is used in traditional ceremonies among the indigenous tribes of Amazonia as a tool to help them communicate with ancestors or access higher realms of consciousness. 

SANANGA

For traditional Amazonian tribespeople, sananga is a powerful eye medicine used to sharpen night vision, balance and increase your energies. The pure spirit of Sananga supports a deep cleansing of the blocked energies on the emotional, physical and spiritual levels. It’s known to decalcify the third eye. This powerful eye drop has a healing power that is more spiritual than physical, and has the capacity to increase insight in the minds of those who use it.

You ask, we answer

Please review the FAQ’s and let us know if you have any questions that we haven’t covered here. 

Plant medicine ceremonies often bring about powerful revelations, but it is the integration work that leads to positive results in our daily lives. We combine our clinically trained tools together with Shamanic practices to help you integrate your experiences.

This means we meet with you at all stages of the ceremony— before, during and after—to support any insights or challenges that arise. It can also be powerful to reflect on your situation in a sacred group environment with others who are having similar experiences.

Ultimately, we provide the safe space and building blocks to journey with intention and navigate through difficult terrain when engaged in the integration process.

This is an immersive experience so expect to be at the retreat center the majority of your stay. However, we will be visiting the beach and have a-full day for an excursion.

Please bring bug repellent, a water bottle, water shoes, a journal, and comfortable clothing.  The weather will be warm, but please bring layers since sometimes it rains periodically and nighttime can get cool.

This is more than your average plant medicine journey. This is a holistic approach that includes:

  • 3 Clinically Trained Facilitators
  • 2 Jungle Shamans
  • Ayurvedic Chef Cooked Meals
  • Beachside Property with Pool & Spa
  • Daily Cleaning Service
  • 4 Plant Medicines – Psilocybin, Kambo, Rapèh, Sananga

  • Inner Child Healing Workshop
  • Micro-dosing Workshop
  • Morning Yoga
  • Airport Transportation

  • Your first Kambo session is included. Additional Kambo sessions are $200.
  • Additional plant medicine purchases (i.e. for micro-dosing or home use) are NOT included as well as flight costs, travel insurance and additional snacks.
  • Massages are a separate charge paid directly to the masseuse.

Shamans have been using these sacred healing medicines for thousands of years.

Feeling fear, resistance or apprehension before a plant session is normal, since the subconscious mind is preparing itself for profound transformation.

Testimonials

Sara

How did this retreat impact your personal healing journey? I honestly did not know what to expect. I was in a place where I was feeling very stuck and very tired. I was living a busy life that I didn’t believe was allowing me to process my emotions. Had it not been for this trip (getting away, taking intentional time for myself to process and begin healing), I believe I would still feel very stuck. This trip gave me an opportunity to only think about myself and my well-being so that I can be a better version of myself and for those that depend on me. Re: plant medicines, these coupled with the time allowed, and the exercises we did, enabled me to pack years worth of necessary therapy (therapy that I didn’t know I needed) into six days.
What major shifts in yourself have you observed since the retreat? I am more appreciative of what I have. I am feeling so overwhelmed with gratitude. I believe that everything happens when and how it’s supposed to, and that what is for me will find me. I am no longer feeling “cheated” or resentful. We all have a process to go through and I’m very much content with what mine is. Being upset and angry is exhausting and I want to get through those emotions so that I can feel gratitude and love underneath. I have learned to not avoid my emotions. Emotions are natural and necessary to feel in order to get to the other side. It’s worth it.
How was this experience different from other investments you’ve made in your self growth path? This experience has been different in that I was allowed plenty of time to process and be one with myself. In our day-to-day routines, there is always something to do or somewhere to go or someone to cater to. I was able to spend quality time with myself and process necessary feelings with no rush or timeline. I didn’t have anyone to focus on other then myself.
What would you say to someone who’s considering this kind of experience? would say that it’s important to trust the process and also prepare for the experience, with rest, diet, and intention. All of the exercises and preparedness makes complete sense at the end and I was sad to leave!
