Sacred healing Mushrooms at the World’s Premiere Psilocybin Retreat…

Intention. Ceremony. Joy.

These three words describe how we heal with sacred mushrooms at The Buena Vida Retreats.

Guided by a team of deeply compassionate leaders, we are dedicated to steering you through an extraordinary journey of self-discovery. 

As the exclusive female-led and ceremony-centric Psilocybin retreat globally, we take pride in our commitment to providing a safe haven for exploration.

Having successfully guided over 750 guests since our inception in 2018, we have witnessed the liberation from past traumas and the initiation of a profound shift towards a heart-centered existence.

Our sacred mushroom medicine is served in a ceremonial and sacramental setting, reminding humanity of our deep love of ritual. We will hold your hand and protect your heart while you remember your true power and live the Buena Vida!

The Buena Vida and Sol Medicine do not supply, endorse, or involve illegal substances. Our goal is to connect you with trained shamans for sacred plant medicine in accepted, sacramental contexts. Shamans assess each guest, strictly following all laws. We don’t guarantee results, specific medicines, etc. Retreat costs cover accommodation, meals, transportation, massage, facilitation, and integration services. Prices don’t include mushroom medicine; Psilocybin is legal in Mexico under ceremony. Due to regulations outside Mexico, mushroom costs aren’t included. Guests pay the shaman a fair fee for medicine and guidance. We prioritize providing the safest, legal psilocybin-assisted retreats. For details, email [email protected]
