Ketamine has shown promise in the treatment of common health concerns, including anxiety, depression, addictive behavior, PTSD and chronic pain. Following best practices in medicine, before you participate in our Transformation retreat we require that you provide a relevant diagnosis from an independent health care provider – your own primary care physician, therapist, or other licensed health practitioner.

Alternatively, we can refer you to a provider in Santa Fe. If you’d like a referral, let us know. This evaluation may be covered by your health insurance.

Tailoring your experience  Your orientation call will allow us to discuss how we can tailor your experience. We will schedule your massage sessions, tub suite appointments and dining reservations – then prepare a comprehensive itinerary for you.

Getting ready for Transformation  Ten Thousand Waves Transformation is unlike any other treatment we offer, and therefore requires additional preparation in advance of your stay. If you really want to do your homework, the book Consciousness Medicine by Francoise Bourzat is a great read, as is this essay by Michael Ziegler of The Guiding Presence. 

  • To increase the power of the experience, we recommend limiting other mind-altering substances (alcohol, THC, etc.) three days prior to, and during the retreat.
  • Cultivating your intentions is key. Prior to your arrival, you’ll receive prompts to help you begin to clarify your intentions.
  • Bringing pets or children is not recommended.
  • Wifi is available in your room; however, you may find that planning in advance to “unplug” from your normal digital connectivity will improve your experience.

Transformation in the time of COVID 

More than 96% of Ten Thousand Waves staff are fully vaccinated; the rest are tested for COVID weekly. We require that you be fully vaccinated to participate in Transformation. You must have had your final shot no fewer than 14 days prior to the date of your journey. Please see the requirements for proof of vaccination.

We ask that our guests wear face masks in public areas, and when walking on the grounds. Our staff will always wear masks to protect you.
