Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
We’ll pick you up at the airport and it’s a short drive to the villa. You’ll have time to unpack your bags, settle in, and get a feel for the space. Have a snack, enjoy the ocean view, and start meeting others in your group.
Through a combination of novel, fun and intuitive activities, you’ll get to know the facilitators and other members of your group. You’ll be briefed on what to expect from psilocybin, led through intention setting exercises, and have 1-on-1 check-ins with a facilitator throughout.
Your psilocybin experience takes place the second day of the retreat, in a comfortable indoor setting. The music, space and atmosphere are curated to deepen and enhance the effects of psychedelics. You’ll also have access to outdoor nature and the beach.
The following day is spent resting, processing, and integrating. Here you’ll be guided through exercises to explore and apply the insights you’ve gained. We may do yoga and meditation as a group, and you’ll have time to yourself to read, write, or just enjoy the tropical weather.
On the last day, we’ll take you back to the airport for your flight home. You’ll be provided with a farewell package of integration materials, and you’re invited to stay in touch with your group members online. A facilitator will check in with you on a follow up call about a week after your retreat.Intake Process:
Start by filling out our online application form. We'll then contact you by email to schedule an intake call with a member of our team. This call is so that you can meet and get acquainted with one of our facilitators, so that we can learn more about your background and intentions, and so that we can answer any questions you might have.
Once you’re accepted into a retreat, you’ll receive a link by email to pay and secure your spot. After making the payment, we’ll send you a comprehensive preparation package that includes travel guidelines, a retreat schedule, information about psilocybin mushrooms, and more. Then you can book your flights and start preparing for the retreat!Psychedelic Substances Offered: Psilocybin MushroomHow does this Center source medicine?:
