About This Event

Your heart knows the way. Run in that direction.


We as a collective seem to be forever expanding, exploring, testing the depths of the waters and the vastness of the sea. Some of us have found a wondrous playground in the infinite and mysterious depths of consciousness itself. In this age of information, we have so many wonderful tools at our disposal, from entheogenic plant medicines to ancient meditation and breathing techniques, from neural hacking to non dual science, it is indeed an exciting time to be a seeker. Now you have the chance to put all of these practices and understandings to use in an integrative way.

We truly believe that the container in which one engages in psychedelic or any form of spiritual work will directly effect their experience and how it ripples and integrates into their daily life. We can have such profound realizations in a medicine experience, but so often it seems to fade like a dream when we reenter our regular routines.

This is How You get to chose how YOU want to experience YOUR life

At our retreats we have successfully curated a container that is designed not only to evoke, stoke, and nurture the process of your spiritual unfolding, but to give you a system of support to take back into your day to day life. This is a combination of Yogic and Buddhist philosophy, Psychedelic integration, Spiritual Emergence coaching and Western therapeutic techniques. The aim of this container is to set a safe place for you to explore your deepest truth, provide you with the context in which to understand it, and the tools to integrate it into your being.

You have our complete support

Embarking on the path of self delivery is a noble cause and one that deserves to be recognized, we devote ourselves to all those that chose to walk the way of the seeker, whatever form it may take for them. We commit to being fully present with you before, during, and after your experience and will hold space for whatever unfolds for you. You will leave this retreat not only equipped with a new way of thinking of feeling, but with a loving support system that will be there for you no matter what arises.

This is it!

A safe, well thought out, and loving container to explore 5-MeO-DMT.

Wake up every morning to the wondrous natural beauty of Tepoztlan, mist from the mountains, butterflies and hummingbirds at your window. Start your mornings off with gentle yoga, blissful meditation, and soul melting breath work. Dine on authentic tepoztan cuisine, all fresh, all organic, and all mouthwateringly delicious. Soak your worries away in the jacuzzi backdropped by the stunning mountains, lounge in the hammocks, breath in the magic of the mountains, hike, explore, and pick delicious fruit right off the trees. There will be multiple chances to work with the medicine and integration/sharing circles each night, along with satsang and workshops. Guided relaxation and sound healing will be our language of goodnight.

Have your choice of a single or double occupancy suite or dorm style bedding.

      Immensely greatful for the experience

    Joel and his partner Mary were more than outstanding facilitators. Their heartfelt compassion combined with the very helpful teachings and execises towards surrender into the experience were simply the high point of my life and i am 68 by now. This was the best frame and method for the experience and i can only deeply recommend Joel to anyone using the medicine.

      A Safe Place to Surrender - GREAT EXPERIENCE

    Just came back from a retreat in Tepoztlan, Mexico with Joel Brierre and his wife Mary, where we had two 5-MeO-DMT ceremonies. It was one of the most positive experiences of my life (I’m 63 years old). They’ve created the most reassuring, caring, knowledgeable, beautiful container to facilitate complete surrender with this medicine. It was all I had hoped for and soooo much more. Joel is extremely experienced and I felt total trust in him. It was my first time taking this substance and I don’t have a whole lot of experience with psychedelics, so I was extremely nervous and hesitant for many weeks prior, but the moment I got to their place, met them and the group, I started to relax and my anxiety became manageable. We had lots of pre-and post-ceremony integration sessions and he taught us very helpful breathing exercises. And, of course, group sharing also before and after. Mary, who is also a death doula, is gorgeous inside and outside. Her loving, sweet presence went a long way in putting everyone at ease and her interest and smart commentaries on each person’s personal difficulties were invaluable help. Their place is absolutely gorgeous. It’s surrounded by very tall, majestic stone mountains. Weather always sunny and temperature perfect. The meals, taken at the outdoor covered porch with the great view of the mountains, cooked fresh daily at their place by a local cook, was amazing. I often find mexican food on the heavy side in the US, but she managed to create much lighter versions of the typical dishes. Healthy food - great, tasty, vegetarian. Freshly squeezed fruit juices with every meal! I could go on and on, but very much want people to read this and don’t want it to seem too long. I’m forever grateful to Joel and Mary. Don’t know if I’ll go back in the future, but just knowing that this is available to me if I ever need it again is invaluable.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica
