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. Equivalent to 6 months of mentorship content, in 4 days. 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.

I wanted to do such a retreat for a long time but i waited and it came in a perfect form for me. Kasham is very professional, very organized and well prepared . I always felt cared for, secure and free. The location and the food were great.
By Geralidne D for 3-Day Transformation Retreat SARDINIA ISLAND Italy on May 28, 2024
This was my fourth retreat with Kasham and a very special experience of reunion with others from past retreats. 6 days of fellowship and communion under the leadership and guidance of Kasham and Hanna was a truly transformative experience I am still processing and integrating into my everyday life. The power of the work we did collectively and independently through workshops, body movement, music and interaction has furthered my own personal development, mind, body and spirit to a new level. Kasham’s retreats are a unique experience every time and have given me so many tools to integrate into my life as I continue on a path of healing and personal exploration. They are the gift to myself that keeps on giving long after I return home. The support provided pre and post retreat is so valuable in setting intentions for my retreat experience and integration afterwards.. I cannot express enough love and gratitude to Kasham, Hanna, Paula and my fellow retreat attendees for making this retreat a truly life changing experience of healing and growth.

This was a wonderfully positive experience, I had an unforgettable time! Kasham provided a beautiful environment, both physically and mentally, that felt loving and safe at all times. I didn't have many expectations when I joined, even if I did, the retreat exceeded anything I ever expected. Thank you Kasham & Hanna for hosting me, this has been the best experience for 2023/24!
