San Pedro Day Ceremony
In a 'day' setting this plant spirit invites you to resolve, transform or heal the limitations felt in your daily lives, in your relationship to the world or to ourselves. It further illuminates your awareness and connection to what is known and to the natural world. As a result it emboldens your action, your purpose and your capactiy to love and be loved.
San Pedro Night Ceremony
The 'night' ceremony with San Pedro is a lot more of an internal process. Visions are often crisper. It helps you address your 'shadow', the part of your life that you have buried, ignored or are not even aware of. It also allows you to discover and transform the limiting cognitive patterns and beliefs systems that are very often driving you without your knowing.

The Earth Medicines we will work with
San Pedro (Peruvian cactus)
Because it is a bit gentler than many of the other plant teachers, Huachuma has earned the nickname “The Grandfather” around the medicine community — Make no mistake though, San Pedro can produce as deep visions as any other entheogenic, Ayahuasca, Buffo Alvarius or Psilocybin mushrooms. However it is overall less intimidating, less jarring and more loving than many other plant teachers. — His main personality is two-fold: heart-opener...
Bufo Alvarius (Mexican Toad)
Sapo (Bufo Alvarius) is the master of non-duality. It will show you what holds the cosmos. With practice it will also lead you to realise the mystical yet revealing link there is between the 'void' and the use of it in our dayly-living. The experience of non-duality is very practical and useful in the sense that it allows us to live from the source, free from the hindrances of mundanity...
A Temazcal is a mud or brick dome-like construction and is used to house people while they undergo an ancient Aztec cleansing ritual.

We currently offer Kambo in almost all our retreats as it...
