The Buena Vida Retreats do not endorse or provide illegal substances. Our retreats focus on facilitating access to trained shamans working with sacred plant medicines in a ceremonial context, adhering to local and national laws. Participants assume responsibility for their due diligence, including pharmaceutical drug contraindications. Retreat prices cover accommodations, meals, transportation, massage, session facilitation, and integration services. Payment for these services is handled electronically via Paypal. Mushroom medicine costs are not included due to legal considerations, and guests pay the shaman a fair service fee for the medicine and their time. The Buena Vida maintains a Zero-Tolerance Policy for recreational substances, with immediate expulsion for non-compliance. We prioritize safety and legal compliance in providing psilocybin-assisted retreats.

Zero-Tolerance Policy

The Buena Vida strictly prohibits recreational substances, including cannabis, ketamine, sleeping pills, non-prescription pills, or any undisclosed items. Guests, in addition to signing a waiver and undergoing a medical screening, must verbally confirm on arrival that their prescription medications remain unchanged and that they do not possess the mentioned substances. We are not equipped for active alcohol or drug addiction or eating disorders. Guests found in violation or unable to adhere to retreat protocols will be asked to leave without a refund.
