How to get thereOur mission is to bring psychedelics and ceremony into the wellness space. We aim to promote and give a platform to the many women healers working in psychedelics. We do this by highlighting the spiritual traditions and modern applications of these sacred plant medicines. We are known for our humorous, light-hearted approach to even serious, deep healing. We believe that in a supportive environment, we can release our deepest trauma and bring joy back into our lives.

Music that is played during session
We use a traditional ceremonial music as our shaman, Kate Ryan, is a classically trained jazz vocalist. She specializes in sining Peruvian Icaros, or sacred medicine songs, as well as improvised songs and sounds that induce a state of peaceful, trance-like calm. She guides the ceremony through use of her voice, drums, rattles, gongs, sound bowls, chimes, etc.

The center provides ceremonies for personal developmentThe medicine will be taken respectfully, one by one, as we keep in mind our intentions for opening and learning. After we have all taken the medicine the curandera will begin to sing songs, mantras or "icaros," traditional Quechuan, Spanish and English songs that evoke and entice the powers of the plant working within. After an amount of time where the curandera recognizes the presence of the fungi, she will begin to let us enter into our own inner landscape. The curandera and her assistants keep a close eye on all participants to make sure everyone remains safe. They will often come around to each participant in the temple and offer individual healings with singing, sound, floral and energy work. Ceremonies can last from four to six hours.
