Wachuma Ceremonies

Wachuma is an ancient Peruvian plant medicine derived from the sacred and highly revered San Pedro cactus and is also referred to as simply San Pedro. Wachuma facilitates deep psychological healing, productive emotional release, energetic realignment, and inner creativity. Utilizing our abundance of experience working with this plant, we will provide you the guidance needed to fully integrate the knowledge into your life with lightness and joy.

Psilocybin Ceremonies

A Psilocybin Ceremony is a guided and intentional experience involving the consumption of psilocybin mushrooms (a naturally occurring hallucinogenic compound) in a ceremonial setting. Our ceremonies are conducted throughout the night in a dark ceremonial space, reminiscent of an ayahuasca ceremony.


The effects can include deep introspection, heightened sensory perception, life-altering insights, emotional release, and spiritual breakthroughs.


The ceremony is designed to create a safe and supportive environment for participants to explore their inner realms and navigate their psychedelic journey. Ceremonial elements such as music, prayer, chanting are used to guide and enhance the experience and foster spiritual connection.

Bufo Alvarius

A Bufo Alvarius ceremony is a ritual that involves the use of the venom from the Sonoran Desert toad, commonly known as Bufo Alvarius. The dried venom of the toad is ingested through vaporizing and smoking it. It contains a potent psychedelic compound called 5-MeO-DMT (5-Methoxy-N,N-Dimethyltryptamine), which induces intense and transformative psychedelic experiences.


The effects of the Bufo Alvarius ceremony can vary from person to person but often include profound ego dissolution, expansion of consciousness, and mystical insights. Many report experiencing a sense of unity with the universe, dissolution of boundaries between self and others, and the perception of timeless or non-dual states of being.
