MEDICINE JOURNEY  The journey begins with an assessment from your ketamine medical provider, who will confirm your health status and answer any technical questions you might have. Your Transformation tour guide will then help you enter the journey space through an intention ritual, gentle movement, and meditation.

As you recline on your super-comfortable Sachi Organics bed, the medicine is administered by intravenous infusion or intra-muscular injection, allowing the provider to precisely control your journey. Your medical provider and Transformation tour guide remain with you, so when you emerge from the deepest part of the experience, you will be eased back to your new reality. You will have the opportunity for a leisurely discussion of your immediate impressions to set the stage for bringing new insights forward into your life.

EXTRAS  All services listed in the right-hand column are included in the price of the retreat. You may elect to reserve additional spa services or additional lodging nights at an additional charge before returning home; this may be arranged prior to arrival or at any time during the retreat (if available) by contacting your Transformation tour guide

KETAMINE-FOCUSED PSYCHOTHERAPY  You may wish to schedule an appointment (billed separately) with one of our local therapists who specialize in ketamine-assisted psychotherapy. These therapists can help you make sense of the images and themes that arose during your medicine journey, and discuss any initial changes in feelings, reactions to stimuli, and general attitude toward life.

You can learn more about your discoveries as they relate to your unique situation, identify inaccurate or negative thinking, view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way – as you emerge from your Transformation experience with an expanded sense of your possibilities.
