Mushrooms are powerful healers which we treat with upmost respect. During ceremony you may experience profound and transformational experiences.

Please DO NOT PAY A DEPOSIT until you have been accepted and a health questionnaire has been completed. 

Cacao is a sacred, heart-opening medicine that has been used in ceremonies for thousands of years by tribes in South and Central America. The ceremonial grade cacao that we use in our retreats and rituals is unprocessed and alive in spirit, with a soft feminine energy and powerful healing effects. On a physical level, cacao can help us form new neural pathways in our brain to release serotonin and dopamine, bringing feelings of joy and bliss. It’s also full of beneficial minerals such as magnesium, copper, zinc, iron and B vitamins. On an energetic level, cacao helps to open the heart and release blocked emotions and stagnant energy. This beautiful heart-opening ceremony will take you on a journey to feel more love, joy, compassion, creativity and connectedness. We will drink together, move together, breathe together, laugh together and maybe even cry together.

Hapé is a traditional indigenous mix of powdered tobacco and ash from medicinal plants within the Brazilian Amazon. Known as the ‘medicine of the mind’, we experience this medicine to support us prior to and during our ceremonial experience to help ground and support us. Hapé benefits us on all levels, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Hapé also benefits us prior to injesting psilocybin as it can be a purgative medicine that cleans the body, especially the stomach and nasal passages.
