THE PLAN

Day 1
You arrive the day of the retreat into the Cancun Airport. The home is about an hour drive away. Check-In begins at 1 PM; settle in, get some rest after your travel journey. We’ll then move into our introductions, where you’ll meet your retreatmates. You’ll also be briefed on some necessary information about the retreat, the group therapy, and the excursion. Afterward, we’ll begin to prepare our minds, hearts, and spirits with some yoga on the beach and a sound bowl session among the crashing waves.  We'll end the night with an opening toast and evening dinner.
 
Day 2
Breakfast begins at 9 AM. We'll begin our Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Group Therapy. During this session, we'll experience how EMDR can be a powerful catalyst for healing. Within this space, we'll be sure to give information about noticing and advocating for triggers, listening to your body, and finally, helping you ground once again at the end of the session. Lunch is served immediately after. To help you process and further ground, we'll begin our spa and massage day. Dinner is served later that evening. 

Day 3
Breakfast commences at 9:30 AM the following morning. Shortly after breakfast ends, we'll begin our DMT breathwork. DMT is the psychoactive compound found in Ayahuasca and naturally exists in plants, animal, and humans. During this simple, yet transformational session, we’ll guide you through a special breathing technique which releases your body’s own DMT. After this, we'll have a short group share and go into our Vipassana Meditation/Observation. Vipassana (which translates to "to see things as they really are") is a Buddhist meditation practice in which the meditator focuses on the ebb and flow of bodily sensations to help push aside the egoic illusions which cause emotional, mental, and even physical pain. After a practice of this meditation style, we'll begin to observe what is called "noble silence", in which we refrain from any form of communication with others. This allows us the space to finally sit with ourselves and our thoughts. During this time, you are asked to mediate on something you would like to release from your life-- anything from self doubt to past heartbreaks. Dinner begins afterward, opening with a brief burn and release ceremony while we eat. During this ritual, you are asked to write your "release" on a piece of paper and drop it into a small flame, essentially symbolizes the beginning, or finalization, of your letting go process.

Day 4

To get the full effects of the plant medicine we will fast for the morning. Our Huachuma Microdosing ceremony will begin at 8 AM Shortly after dinner ends, I will brief you on the sacred plant medicine, and what to expect throughout the day.  Brunch will commence at 10 AM and our excursion transportation will arrive at 11 AM. We'll honor the water goddesses by indulging in day of fun and flow: snorkeling with sea turtles and swimming in a freshwater cenote. Once we arrive back from the trip, we'll rest up after the adventurous day. Adorned in our after-five attire, we'll indulge in a dinner of Latin cuisine, decadent desert, and fine wine (if you care to have it, of course). We'll end our last full day with this intimate, reflective dinner.

 Day 5
We will start the day with breakfast at 10 AM.  Following our morning meal, we'll have our final group share to further process our experiences. During this time, I'll also give more information about integration after plant medicine. We'll end our retreat with a closing meditation and prayer, goodbyes, and pictures.
