GIVE THE GIFT OF SELF TO YOURSELF
This exclusive, 3 - day / 2 - night retreat is aimed at those looking to immerse themselves into personal development and spiritual growth with the assistance of the sacred plant medicine of the Mushrooms in a safe, immersive, and supportive environment. This transformational retreat takes place just outside of the greater Vancouver area.
This is a Mexican, ancestral ceremony from the Mazatec people. Maria Sabina, the famous healer who brought magic mushrooms to the west in the 1950’s and ’60, came from this lineage.
This ancestral ceremony works with psilocybin to promote healing and connection using techniques such as songs, prayers, and most of all, silence as a place of connecting with deep layers of the Soul. The medicine carriers curate a ceremony that allows them to commune with ancestors spirits and deities, sing, heal and pray. The ceremony takes place in doors at night to deeply connect with ourselves.
AGDER SANCHEZ PALACIOS
Agder is an ancestral ceremony facilitator with over 20 years experience working with the Mazatec mushroom tradition as well as the Lakota peyote temazcal and sweat lodge. His father was a medicine man before him and he was introduced to the medicine path at the age of 8. Agder trained in First Nations traditions and is certified by the Native American Church to run peyote and sweat lodge ceremonies. He’s a sundancer and chanoopa carrier and his work has taken him all over the world from India to Canada and many countries in Europe.
This retreat will take place on Bowen Island Vancouver Island, roughly
1.5hrs (including a ferry ride) from Vancouver.
We will be staying at a beautiful, private retreat centre immersed in nature. The retreat center has beautiful communal space and private rooms to accommodate everyone. There is a designated space for ceremony that will be complimented by the majesty of the natural surroundings outside.
North and Central American native traditions have used psilocybin for hundreds of years for healing of physical and emotional ailments as well as connecting with the world of spirit for guidance and support.
We provide much more than just a ceremony. During the retreat, we will use several embodiment practices to get out of our head and connect with our true essence. We offer extensive preparation and integration support before, during and after the retreat experience to empower you making the most of it over the long term.
It is not possible to guarantee what your experience will be like. However, these are some of the common results experienced from psychedelics.
Letting go of suppressed thoughts and feelings
Self acceptance and compassion
Overcoming of unhelpful thoughts and behavioural patterns
Reduced stress and worry
Increased sense of wellbeing
Greater connectivity with self and others
Greater sense of purpose
Renewed energy and focus
WHAT TO EXPECT
We take a holistic approach to personal and spiritual development designed to deepen your experience. During the retreat, we use several modalities to enhance your experience, such as movement, breathwork and meditation. We also offer extensive preparation and integration support before and after your retreat focussed on embodiment of the results.
Each participant will be assessed before entering the retreat through a compulsory application form and screening. Due to the powerful nature of entheogens and the impact that others sharing the space can have, we limit each retreat to 12 selected attendees.
