our journey with platonic intimacy?
for deeper interpersonal exploration: platonic intimacy helps us celebrate the range of relationship. our team will hold the space together while you explore parts of your nervous system wired for connection.
we journey with mdma and psilocybin, there will be food, rest and connective activities. each morning, we return to circle, eat, integrate, and explore more. this retreat will be followed by extended integration for three weeks
an important element of your experience is to feel well nourished and well rested, so we ask that you focus on rest leading up to ceremony and we will support that for you while you are with us
we'll be centering you in relationship to your family, your beloveds, your sensual self, your environment, the elements, your ancestors and the greater communities we belong to.
