      Benefits of Psychedelic Medicine

      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

      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.



      Accommodations and Why Manitou Springs?

      Manitou Springs is known as a hippie, artist’s town tucked away at the foot of Pikes Peak, steps away from Garden of the Gods, the Manitou Mineral Springs, Cave of the Winds, and Cave Dwellings. Our beautiful home is The Avenue, a historic icon in Manitou Springs, Colorado. Built-in 1886, this Queen Ann-style Victorian Mansion is one of the most unique, and exclusive private luxury lodging facilities in Colorado. Peer up the 3 story winding staircase, and take in the grandeur of this majestic piece of architectural history. There is so much to see and do in and around Manitou Springs you can extend your trip by a day or two and hike the Manitou incline if you dare ( 2,000 feet vertical feet).


       We will be offering an optional Sunday evening trip to the Manitou Mineral Springs, where we will soak in the cedar tubs with stunning views of the mountain and enjoy the full moon rising.  The land upon which Manitou Springs was founded had long been a sacred cultural crossroads for the Anasazi, Kiowa, Cheyenne, Ute, and Arapaho people. They gathered here near the mineral springs, whose natural carbonation they called The Breath of The Great Spirit.

      This experience exceeding my high expectations. Heather and Monica created a sacred, safe space in a beautiful environment for this life altering journey. They are highly trained, experienced psychedelic wellness professionals. Every detail of the experience had been thought out and planned for. The camaraderie they fostered in our small group setting was essential to the integration of each women's experience. I would definitely recommend!

      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.
