We welcome men and women who are at least 25 years old. Typically, a retreat is comprised of a small group anywhere from 10 to 20 people. Whether you have little or no prior experience with psychedelics, you are welcome. Even if you’re highly experienced with psychedelics, you may want to come to Essence to partake in a group ceremony or experiment with a higher dose than you’ve done before.
Experienced facilitators are on hand throughout the experience, with no fewer than one facilitator for every five participants.
Our retreats are aimed at people in good mental and physical health wanting to explore the nature of reality, dive deep into the psyche, and have a spiritual or mystical experience. However, keep in mind that they are not intended as a substitute for medical or psychotherapeutic care.
