An Experience Of A Life Time

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 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.

About The Plants

Giving thanks to the medicines that will be joining us.

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.

SYRIAN RUE

Oftentimes we pair psilocybin with small doses of a plant called syrian rue. The seeds of syrian rue are rich sources of water-soluble beta-carboline alkaloids, responsible for most of its therapeutic effects. Syrian rue adds a meditative and grounding quality to a psilocybin journey. It can also be used separately in a tea for calming the nervous system or sleep support. 

 

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.

Ayahuasca ceremony is an additional cost of $300 and is paid directly to the Shaman.

Additional Kambo is $200.

Additional plant medicine purchases are NOT included as well as flight costs, travel insurance and additional snacks and food.

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.

After you complete the Plant Medicine Interest Form, please book a soul session with the facilitators to ensure readiness to journey.

The meals will be vegetarian with vegan options if requested in advance. All meals are prepared by an herbalist and classically trained chef.
