      Benefits of Psychedelics

      The benefits of psychedelics include: 

      1. Increasing neuroplasticity
      2. Increased openness and increased ability to create change
      3. Decrease in depressive symptoms and anxiety
      4. Access to intuition and inner wisdom
      5. Help with cognitive aging and flexible thinking. Neuroprotective
      6.  LIkeliness of a mystical experience, deep connection to self, others, and our planet
      7. Repatterning and shifting of Negative thought processes and rumination

      Psychedelic medicine is steeped in tradition and ceremony and used by people all around the world for hundreds of years. When consumed these medicines open our hearts and souls to a deeper perspective of ourselves, our lives, nature, and meaning. It is an honor to work with psychedelic medicine and ceremony to help bring awakening, insight, and inner wisdom to those who journey.
      Psychedelic medicine's therapeutic benefits are gaining great support from the medical and mental health community. The Johns Hopkins Center for Psychedelic and Consciousness Research is leading much of the research and continually demonstrating these medicines' safety and effectiveness. Ketamine and psilocybin are some of the safest drugs available, safer than alcohol, cigarettes, and almost anything in your medicine cabinet.

Heather has been a women's  wellness coach/ psychospiritual therapist and woman’s retreat leader for over thirty years. She is the Founder and Director of Medicine Woman Retreats and uses her depth of understanding and expertise in the soul and science of psychedelics to create magical and meaningful women's retreats internationally.


      Heather is passionate about plant medicine as a powerful path for connecting with inner wisdom and greater mind/body/spirit wellness. Her own cancer journey has deepened her personal connection to psilocybin as a medicine for the soul. She has experienced firsthand the ability of psychedelic medicine to illuminate the connection between thoughts, emotions, and physical dis-ease.

      This retreat was all I had hoped for and more. Heather and Monica are amazing, it was great being with a small group with all-females, and the location was very calming and serene. Journey prep and follow up were great and the experience itself was very powerful and eye-opening. The medicine opens your eyes to a world and a perspective that otherwise you wouldn’t have. It’s life-changing.

      Thank you for a fantastic experience! Amazing accommodations, met amazing people, ate amazing food. Such a remarkable weekend.

      We had a wonderful experience, the hospitality was well planned and we were always made to feel comfortable. I enjoyed the comradery of our group. Our hosts/facilitators were very warm and made us feel safe. the exercises of integration were especially comforting. I personally experienced profound awakenings. If I have one critique to offer, I would have liked to have more one on one during my journey. I often felt ungrounded and that might be a part of the process, but I feel I may have been able to face and look at more, if I had someone in the room with me more constantly. I longed for connection, but felt very disconnected, which created a bit of fear and longing for it to be over. the overall experience was profound, I look forward to the continued enlightenment and healing in store for me. with Gratitude~ Brenda
      By Brenda I for Women's Psychedelic Wellness Retreat: Finding Your Purpose & Passion on Oct 11, 2023
      Thank you so much for your review and we are so glad you had a good experience. It is a balancing act in a group setting to have 1:1 devoted time, as we are in a group setting. Sometimes a private 1:1 journey is a better format for clients who need the extra support and want a sitter exclusively working with them which both Heather and I offer. Thank you again!

      This retreat was one of the most powerful events in my life. I was able to have an experience I was always curious about and felt completely safe and supported the whole time. Monica, Heather and their interns are all such kind, loving and awesome people. I made connections with some wonderful women, enjoyed the beautiful resort and its amenities, and had plenty of downtime to explore the local area. The food was excellent and the activities were both enjoyable and enlightening. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to explore themselves more deeply and unlock some true magic within.

      I would highly recommend for anyone interested in exploring this kind of plant medicine. I have been interested for years, but wasn’t sure where and with whom. The setting was perfect and Monica and Heather did a great job making us feel safe and supported before, during and after the journey. Extremely positive experience and I’d do it again!
