Guiding you to meet the origins of the ancient plant medicine system of psilocybin mushrooms. Together we will be immersed in the indigenous traditions and healing power of Los Niños Santos​ (the holy children)

During this rare and precious retreat we will experience a full mushroom healing dieta with the prestegious medicine woman and Mazatec healer Doña Eugenia Casimiro. Eugenia is one of the few healers in the world who is carrying this healing tradition of working with mushrooms or 'Los Niños Santos' through direct line, being a student of her highly respected mother Julieta Casimiro - one of the 13 Grandmothers and the famous Maria Sabina.

The Mazatec people have been using this medicine for thousands of years, for its medicinal, curative benefits whilst also seeing it as a path to access and communicate with the divine wisdom within other realms of the universe. We will spend this week with them on that journey, in their trusted hands we will be guided to explore our own connection with consciousness and strengthen that relationship for our own path of healing.

Modern research being done is drawing the same conclusions and proving what the Casimiro family have known all along, recent scientific research finds that Psilocybin therapy may provide long lasting benefits for;

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Lessened Fear of Death
Increased Creativity
Enhanced Empathy
Connectedness to self, others and world
Process Trauma
Fresh Perspective
Heightened Feelings of Gratitude
Feeling that "Everything will be just fine"

We are absolutely BLESSED to be working with such knowledgeable healers in such a time of change.
A pivotal moment where the modern world is also waking up to the powerful benefits of this natural plant medicine and how impactful it can be on peoples lives.

An interview with Doña Eugenia Casimiro, Mazatec Healer

Who is Doña Eugenia?

Doña Eugenia Pineda Casimiro is a Mazateca healer from Huautla de Jiménez, Mexico, a little town in Oaxaca which was brought to fame by María Sabina and her work with Los Niños Santos, or “the holy children.” Trained in her ancestral lineage by her mother, Abuela Julieta Pineda Casimiro of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers. Eugenia worked by her side since childhood, and accompanied her through all of her world travels. Eugenia inherited this altar to carry on the family legacy upon her mother’s passing in 2018.

Our dream for this retreat is to not just be a healing medicine retreat but to be a cultural immersion into the mushroom ceremony altar which is so rare in the modern use of magic mushrooms we see today. This is a deep and playful adventure journey back to the source!

It's too expensive for me right now, can you help?

Absolutely, we offer accessibility support and also payment plans, we can discuss this on your intro call.Book your 15 free intro call here.

How do I get there? Do I need to get my own flights?

Yes, we recommend flying from the UK to either Mexico City or Cancun. We will collect you from Mexico City and we will travel together in a minibus to the mountains of Oaxaca which is roughly 7 hours (we will take a stop off half way).

For flights, generally sometimes it's cheaper to get a flight to Madrid and then from there a direct to Mexico. Check Kayak and Sky Scanner for options.
