About the event

A women-only retreat-training for practitioners who have completed introductory experiential training with us or another psychedelic-assisted therapy training provider (such as, PRATI, IPI, Synthesis, Fluence, Naropa, etc). This retreat includes 3 nights lodging at Sunshine Mountain Lodge in Lyons, Colorado, our private chef for meals, medicine ceremony, intuitive coaching for your continued personal or professional development, and teaching around the history, practices, and protocols for supporting others in their use of psilocybin mushrooms.

Teaching around psilocybin mushrooms during our Spring retreat-training covers:

  • An introduction to psilocybin, its history and lineages of practice
  • Creating ritual and ceremony around mushrooms
  • Deepening your relationship with the mushroom and learning from the energetic space that opens up before and after taking mushrooms
  • Practical considerations around space, dosage, ideal clients for this medicine, and contraindications
  • Protocols involving the frequency and quality of preparation and integration sessions, the types of psychotherapy that are/are not supportive of mushroom work, and common challenges you might encounter

Participants also have the opportunity for one-to-one intuitive coaching with Shannon during our weekend together. Your session with Shannon is essentially aimed to help you continue anchoring into your own psychedelic practice with authenticity, integrity, and clear inner guidance. As our retreat theme, we invite you to consider what it feels like to do less. What does it look like to give things time, to give things space? As we feel into the spaciousness of snail time, there is an opportunity to listen more deeply. We allow ourselves to be led by the whispers of the animate that are accessible when we are quiet and spacious. At Elemental, we also believe that your personal experience with medicine is one of our primary teachers in this work. Being in medicine space + being in community with other practitioners gives us time and space to listen within and to listen/connect/learn from the experiences of others. We are very excited to share this special weekend with you!
