introspection and connection.
This is a ceremony for healing and deepening
Awareness into the Mystery.
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 indoors 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 private land at Anderson Lake, BC, roughly 3hrs north of Vancouver.
We will be staying on wild and beautiful land, immersed in nature. This is an opportunity to reconnect with Nature as we slow down to the natural rhythms. We will stay in tents and make use of the communal space for ceremony, and also enjoy the lakeside sauna.
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 from plant medicine.

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.
