Jamaica is one of the few countries in the world where psilocybin mushrooms are legal, which is why we've chosen it to host our retreats.
Our team of experienced facilitators is here to help you prepare for, navigate, and integrate your psychedelic journey.
Psilocybin has been studied to positive effect at Johns Hopkins University, NYU, and Imperial College London.

We’ll pick you up at the airport and it’s a short drive to the villa. You’ll have time to unpack your bags, settle in, and get a feel for the space. Have a snack, enjoy the ocean view, and start meeting others in your group.
Through a combination of novel, fun and intuitive activities, you’ll get to know the facilitators and other members of your group. You’ll be briefed on what to expect from psilocybin, led through intention setting exercises, and have 1-on-1 check-ins with a facilitator throughout.
Your psilocybin experience takes place the second day of the retreat, in a comfortable indoor setting. The music, space and atmosphere are curated to deepen and enhance the effects of psychedelics. You’ll also have access to outdoor nature and the beach.
The following day is spent resting, processing, and integrating. Here you’ll be guided through exercises to explore and apply the insights you’ve gained. We’ll do yoga and meditation as a group, and you’ll have time to yourself to read, write, or just enjoy the tropical weather.
On the last day, we’ll take you back to the airport for your flight home. You’ll be provided with a farewell package of integration materials, and you’re invited to stay in touch with your group members online. A facilitator will check in with you on a follow up call about a week after your retreat.
