Integration is what happens after ceremony and once you're back in your life. Our goal is for you to have the most powerful integration possible, setting you up to make the changes that you want to make in your life, and maximize your own healing process. With this in mind, we're offering this special 9-day workshop where the focus is on processing your ceremony experiences through a lens of early childhood development, attachment, and nondual spirituality. People who've been on these retreats say they can't imagine doing the work any other way. The inimitable Marc Silver will be filming this workshop, collecting footage and story for his upcoming world-class ayahuasca documentary. This retreat is now waitlist only, so apply now if you want to be added to it.
