Traditions of Mexico and Ecuador:

Embark on a transformative journey at our immersive 8-day retreat in the heart of Tepoztlan, Mexico.

Under the guidance of experienced facilitators, you'll learn to integrate traditional medicine practices into your work with psychedelics and deepen your understanding of their therapeutic potential. Immerse yourself in the vibrant culture and stunning natural beauty of Tepoztlan as you connect with like-minded individuals and expand your horizons.
