Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
Our approach is holistic, recognizing that the journey with psilocybin, or any other transformative experience, is not just about the moment itself but the before and after as well.
Preparation: We start with a comprehensive orientation session, which provides attendees with a clear understanding of what to expect. This involves educating them on the nature of psilocybin, its effects, and the importance of setting intentions. We also emphasize the importance of entering the experience with an open heart and mind, free from rigid expectations.
Experience: The retreat itself is a blend of structured sessions and free time, allowing participants to process their experiences in a way that feels right for them. Our team of experts is always on hand to guide and support, ensuring that the environment is safe, supportive, and conducive to deep introspection.
Integration: Post-retreat, we facilitate group sharing sessions where participants can share their experiences, insights, and realizations. This communal sharing often provides additional clarity and validation. We also offer resources, such as reading materials and follow-up sessions, to help integrate the experience into daily life.Intake Process:
Safety and ensuring a harmonious group dynamic are paramount. Our vetting process is thorough:
Initial Consultation: Whether through phone or in-person, this allows us to gauge the individual's readiness for the retreat and address any preliminary questions.
