Since this was my first experience with plant medicine of any sort, and since I possessed only a vague spiritual understanding leading up to it, I wasn’t sure what to expect on this retreat – I simply came with an open heart and an open mind; I’m incredibly happy I did. Frederic is immensely intuitive and clearly skilled at what he does. The food was exceptional, thoughtfully prepared by a talented onsite vegetarian chef, and the accommodations were more than adequate, with a sparkling pool and grassy area. I believe this is a new venue, so there can always be a tweak or two to improve the experience (blankets were missing), but that is so minor it didn’t even matter to me. I needed more leg room to sleep as well, but of course that is not the norm for most since I am an outlier (6’8″). I loved the isolated jungle setting. Most of all, I am still absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the Bufo ceremony, and have been thinking about it non-stop for the last day and a half. The Bufo experience, without question, was one of the most profound experiences of my life. Thank you
