SET AND SETTING
Humans have used psychedelic compounds as catalysts for healing and growth for millenia, and contemporary neuroscience is now exalting their benefits. “Set and Setting” refers to the psychological and environmental elements that shape one’s response to psychedelic medicines.
THE TRANSFORMATION EXPERIENCE VS. CLINICAL KETAMINE
A ketamine treatment in a medical office typically lasts 1-2 hours, after which the patient heads back to their daily life. The Ten Thousand Waves Transformation model, however, is an immersive retreat designed to enhance the effectiveness of ketamine.
Real, lasting change is encouraged when a psychedelic encounter is held in a supportive, beautiful environment, and allows for time in nature, guided preparation and reflection, nourishing gourmet meals, and the healing power of hot water and massage therapy.
Preparation: Leading up to your arrival, our Transformation staff prepares you thoroughly with a virtual orientation session to explain the process, answer your questions, and tailor your experience. You’ll also meet your medical provider for a comprehensive medical intake session.
Diagnosis: Your own medical provider or therapist can work with you to determine if Transformation is right for you.
Tour Guide: Throughout the retreat, you will receive highly-attuned, personalized guidance and support. As a companion on the journey, your Tour Guide will meet you upon arrival for a one-hour preparation session in which they will clarify your itinerary, answer questions, and lead you in a process of illuminating any intentions you have. On journey day, your Tour Guide sits with you for the duration of your journey, and helps you to emerge in a supported way. Your personal Tour Guide meets you the day after the journey for a one-hour integration session, followed by a 30-minute follow-up session one week later. All of our Tour Guides are trained in a holistic model of ketamine-assisted care.
Multiple Sessions Unlike a ketamine clinic, we don’t require a commitment to multiple sessions. We believe that everyone is different, and that the Transformation model can provide powerful, lasting effects with one treatment. However, you may extend your visit to include more than one ketamine journey, and repeat visits are discounted.
