Sacred Medicine Ceremonies:

Bufo & Ayahuasca Ceremony: 

Engage in a transformative spiritual journey guided by skilled facilitators to uncover deep insights and promote emotional healing.


Ayahuasca is a powerful plant medicine used traditionally by indigenous Amazonian tribes for centuries. It is a brew made from the Banisteriopsis caapi vine and the leaves of the Psychotria viridis shrub, containing the potent psychoactive compound DMT (dimethyltryptamine). Here’s how Ayahuasca aids in trauma healing:

Deep Emotional Release:

Ayahuasca facilitates the release of deep-seated emotional traumas by allowing participants to confront and process repressed memories and emotions in a safe, guided setting. This process can lead to profound emotional catharsis and healing.

Spiritual Insights and Connection:

Many users report profound spiritual experiences, including a sense of connection to a higher power, nature, and their true selves. These insights can help reframe traumatic experiences, providing a new perspective and a sense of purpose.

Neurogenesis and Neuroplasticity:

Research suggests that Ayahuasca promotes neurogenesis (the growth of new neurons) and enhances neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to reorganize itself). This can help rewire neural pathways affected by trauma, fostering emotional resilience and cognitive flexibility.

Enhanced Self-Awareness:

The introspective nature of Ayahuasca journeys allows participants to gain a deeper understanding of their thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. This heightened self-awareness is crucial for identifying and transforming negative patterns associated with trauma.

Community and Support:

Ayahuasca ceremonies are often conducted in a group setting, creating a supportive community where participants can share their experiences and insights. This communal aspect can be incredibly healing, providing a sense of belonging and mutual understanding.


Bufo, or 5-MeO-DMT, is a powerful psychoactive substance derived from the venom of the Bufo alvarius toad. It is known for its rapid and intense effects, often described as a “mystical” or “transcendent” experience. Here’s how Bufo aids in trauma healing:

Ego Dissolution:

One of the most notable effects of Bufo is the dissolution of the ego, which can lead to a profound sense of unity and interconnectedness. This state can help individuals transcend their trauma, seeing it from a higher perspective and reducing its emotional impact.

Rapid Healing and Transformation:

The intense and condensed nature of Bufo experiences often leads to rapid insights and breakthroughs. Many participants report significant emotional healing and a renewed sense of clarity and purpose after just one session.

Breakthrough in Consciousness:

Bufo can facilitate a “breakthrough” experience, allowing individuals to access deep levels of consciousness and subconscious material. This can help unearth and resolve trauma that might be difficult to reach through traditional therapeutic methods.

Spiritual Awakening:

Similar to Ayahuasca, Bufo experiences often include profound spiritual insights and awakenings. These experiences can provide a new framework for understanding and integrating traumatic events, leading to lasting healing and transformation.

Integration of Trauma:

Post-Bufo, participants often experience a heightened sense of peace, love, and connectedness. This integration phase is crucial for grounding the experience and making sustainable changes in how trauma is perceived and managed.
