About this trip

Have you been considering, or perhaps started, facilitating mushroom ceremonies for the purpose of healing?

  • Do you feel deeply connected to sacred mycelium?
  • Do you feel a call but don’t know how to get started or where to begin?
  • Do you want to learn more about various rituals to support holding space?
  • Are you concerned about how to hold a safe space for those dealing with heavy issues like trauma, abuse, mental health diagnosis, mid-life crises and burnout?
  • Want to learn more about potential risks and ways to avoid harm?

This training is NOT an initiation nor will it cover everything you need to know to facilitate; People often spend years learning in order to be ready. This is an intensive 4-Day training with experiential activities and workshops. There will also be an optional add-on Day ceremony (the 5th Day). The intention of this Facilitator Training is to better equip you with more tools, activities and information to add to your toolkit and to provide a safe environment for you to put into practice some of the skills and tools you already have.  

Some of the Topics that will be covered:

  • The Power of Intention
  • How to work with the Medicine Wheel in ceremony
  • Holding Space: being fully present in multiple dimensions at the same time
  • Ceremonial Walkthrough
  • Emergency Protocols
  • Dealing with Different Client Types
  • Activities & Workshops
  • Putting Together a Retreat Program
  • Before the Ceremony: Pre Screening and Pre Session
  • After the Ceremony: Integration Support
  • Altars
  • Dosing
  • Supporting Medicines
  • Legal Considerations

We will begin at 14:30 on the 14th and end at 14:00 on the 17th. (If you choose to have the optional extra day- ceremony- your accommodations will be included in the add on price.) NOTE: it is not possible to arrive late nor leave early as this disrupts the group dynamic and the flow of programming. It will be possible to add a night in front of and after the retreat for a minimal cost.

The latest arrival into Faro Airport to arrive on time would be 13:10. The earliest flight from Faro Airport on the 17th would be 17h.
