When most people think of plant medicines, most probably think of running barefoot in the jungles of the Peru, sipping out of a cup, experiencing horrible bodily functions that usually come from eating uncooked chicken. Dogmatic Shamans giving instruction on where to purge, where to sit and loud drumming that at times makes you want to purge even more. For most new comers to this experience it is a tough brew to swallow, no pun intended.
For many the avatar of the person seeking out spiritual enlightenment has typically been the millennial with dread locks and possibly a look of “ I have been living in tree house in the jungle for 10 days”. We are here to tell you that avatar is rapidly changing. We mostly offer these retreats to high level executives, middle aged mothers, even milennials that want to experience transformation at a younger age.
This is why we created bespoke experiences for people. We take into account that everyone has different levels of background and comfort levels. For our first timers our approach is unlike most others. We have hand chosen the best of a handful of female shamans to deliver the medicine in beautifully relaxed environments, without the degree of purge that many of the other ceremonies deliver.
As people become more experienced, the traditional ceremonies with a purge are also extremely beneficial. They offer an experience that for some can be very healing. However, for newbies or beginners, the thought of puking in a ceremonial bucket and not making it to the bathroom in time is not so appealing. We are here to tell you its not always necessary.
There is a scientific reason for the vomiting (see our blog on to purge or not to purge) however, sometimes a purge can take shape in other forms, such as crying, sweating, or even laughter.
