Retreat InfoAbout the Retreat:
Reunion is a not-for-profit sacred space in Costa Rica to experience the transformational power of Ayahuasca and Psilocybin ceremonies complemented by ancient and modern modalities to bring forth healing and sustained change through learning, self-discovery, and self-acceptance.
Embodiment + Sacred Medicine + Integration is Reunion’s approach to healing and transformation.
Embodiment: We experience the world through sensing our whole body. It is the most primal form of inner communication that directs all thought, feeling, and action. We explore somatic practices to discover our innate physical intelligence, learn from the wisdom of the body and feel connected to the whole. Ultimately, embodiment is a process of realizing each aspect of our self and sovereignty.
Sacred Medicine: Ancient and indigenous cultures have been working with plant medicines for time immemorial. Working with these medicines in a sacred and ceremonial context can assist our healing journey. The plants become great allies on our path towards transformation and wholeness.
Integration: At Reunion, we believe Integration is imperative. We believe most of the work happens after ceremony. We are here to provide you with the tools and support to navigate your post medicine journey.
Reunion has been created as a not-for-profit organization. This allows us to focus on our Guest experience, create positive impact on the planet, and operate in harmony with the natural world without the focus on profit.
As one of the few not-for-profit plant medicine centers, all earnings and donations go directly into the organization and its operations. Any revenue above operating costs goes towards reciprocity. Great effort is put into sustaining our land, facilities, contributors (staff), community programs, and scholarships.Description of Services:
Our all-inclusive journeys will help you ignite life through personal observation, exploration, understanding, healing, and self-expansion.

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
At Reunion, our experiences are not retreats from everyday life; they are journeys of healing, reconnection, and holistic wellbeing. With nature as our foundation, we offer transformative experiences through sacred plant medicine complemented by ancient and modern modalities.
Reunion is the ideal setting for a plant medicine experience. At Reunion, your ceremonial experience will consciously blend traditions, expertise, and safety in the highest degree. We uphold traditional practices through an interdisciplinary approach because these sacred medicines, when administered in a safe and respectful way, have tremendous healing capabilities. Physical safety, emotional well-being, and mental healing are of utmost importance to us. We are committed to each Guest by maintaining a respectful, non-judgmental space for everyone to heal. Our team has a diverse and deep experience level, having trained and practiced all over the world. Our main goal is to create a supportive, nourishing environment so everyone can have the deepest healing journey possible.Intake Process:

Your form will then be directed to our facilitation team for a safety review to ensure the journey is a fit. We have a medical doctor and psychotherapist on our review board - should there be any red flags they will review the form and engage with you as necessary.
