Due to a barrage of life circumstances, I waited 2 years to attend MycoMeditation's Classic Retreat. It was well worth the wait. Jamaica is obviously beautiful, and I appreciated the host and her property; it was a very personal experience. To say psilocybin quickly reached unexplored territory in my psyche would be a large understatement. I was treated to 3 intense, self-driven explorations into realms impossible to reach via talk therapy or anti-depressants. Greater truths were revealed, and I felt peace. It is work. I recommend coming prepared with self-exploration to the extent possible to truly maximize the ability to go further. The counselors are absolutely great. For me, some understood me better than others, so I was happy to find my matches who really saw me from the extensive staff. This retreat is life-altering. After years of abuse and illness, I went home with a glow and a reset to continue life with more enthusiasm, awareness, and deeper understanding. I had a few issues-- too large a group for timely integration sessions, some personality friction, some triggering from the stories of others... but I suppose that is to all be expected when digging so deeply into lifetime trauma. Life saving and transformative, I am so happy I found MycoMeditations. If you are on the fence and stuck in a relentless cycle, I highly recommend taking this leap!

I am a physician and surgeon with severe complex PTSD. My life had been marred by debilitating flashbacks. I tried antidepressants, cognitive therapy and EMDR, all of which did no good.I had gotten to the point where I could no longer going on living like this. Because of all the reputable double blinded randomized controlled studies with psilocybin, I chose to give it a try and it really worked. The combination of group therapy and the psilocybin treatment allowed me to breakdown the walls that were not allowing me to normally and physiologically process my trauma so that I could put it behind me and move on with my life. I am so thankful for the extremely knowledgeable and wonderful staff. They were very impressive to say the least and their follow up support after I got home was over the top. They helped save my life!

My favorite part of the experience was the team of supportive, thoughtful, professional counselors. There wasn’t a moment of the trips where I felt alone or unsupported. The ratio on our experience was almost 1 on 1 and I couldn’t imagine a better opportunity to counsel with such professionals. I was interested in the healing nature of the mushrooms but not interested in any recreational or clinical use. If you’re looking for a nonjudgmental, nature based, therapeutic experience this is perfect. Mushrooms are sacred and show the path through the internal and external world. They provide introductions to the universe and to the psyche and offer directions for healing, growth and well being. The accommodation’s are pristine, the food is fantastic with authentic Jamaican fare and the staff is so thoughtful I couldn’t imagine a need they couldn’t fulfill. Be prepared for the journey from Montgomery Bay to Treasure Beach, it’s 2.5 to 3 hours of winding and rough roads. The views are great and you get a first hand look at Jamaican life but the journey could cause car sickness, if you are susceptible I would recommend preparing yourself. My week long experience has changed my life, given me new perspectives, graced me with new friends from all over the world and healed the inner tormentors I brought to the party. My highest recommendations, you can’t get more value for your money anywhere else, the journey was inside and out and the trips were amazing.

It's not only the paradise-like property and weather, or the beautiful food, or the great yoga classes, is not even about the beautiful people you can meet. It is all about how much it changes the way you see the world, it is about all the peace and love you gain and the invaluable insights you can get from this experience. If you are not sure give them a call and talk your doubt out, is time to give you this gift!

I am a middle age man who did a lot of research leading up to my MycoMeditations retreat, and while I was very excited, I also had some anxiety around a few issues: - Would taking mushrooms help me with anxiety and depression? - Was the process and location safe? - Would the therapists and facilitators know what they were doing? I can honestly say, the quality of my experience was a 10 out of 10. You never know what you're going to get from your mushroom trips, but the setup is top notch; they do everything possible to make your experience profound and enjoyable--and the Myco team succeeded at every level. The reason I wanted to try psilocybin therapy was that I always suffered from a low level depression and anxiety through most of my life, and was hoping for some relief without the aid of SSRI's. Also, as bonus, I hoped to explore some larger questions of meaning and spirituality. Each of my 3 trips was profound, enlightening, and filled with an emotional release. But my last trip was The BIG BANG where I traveled to places that seemed both impossible and inevitable. This last last trip was like flying on a cloud of love while stuffing my face full of happiness. Not like I was drunk or high (I've been both), but as if this really was the world I was meant to inhabit, that had always existed behind the cloud of negativity I used to cover myself from the fear of rejection and disappointment. Twenty minutes into this last trip, I took off my eyeshades and was like, that's it, I don't need any more--I've witnessed everything and I'm connected to everything! But that was just the first 20 minutes of my trip; it went on for another 2 hours. I wrote things down on my last trip, which isn't necessary, but helped me capture some thoughts and ideas. At one point I wrote, "I'd be very bad with Wordle right now, but very good with butterflies." By the end of the experience, I felt renewed, reborn, as if all of the baggage I'd carried around about my family, my anxiety, my depression had melted away. I also should mention I am a skeptic by nature. I consider myself a super rational person, and maybe this is why the voice of Billy Crystal playing Miracle Max from the Princess bride followed me around on my last trip. Every time, I'd say something like this is too good to be true, or love can't be the answer to everything! Miracle Max would say, "don't be such a skeptic. It's all true, believe!" Of course, not all of my trip experiences were roses and bunnies; you'll deal with some dark stuff. And if you do run into an especially difficult trip experience, as many did, they aren't going to abandon you and there is just as much healing that occurs at the group integration sessions as in the trips themselves. The therapist team was top notch, the perfect combination of alacrity and compassion. And there was so much caring from the facilitators and just as much from the other guests. Maybe the biggest thing I learned on this retreat is how to cry. Before this trip crying felt like vomiting to me. I'd hit this emotional note of wanting to cry and get all choked up and repress the urge to let it out. The mushrooms won't allow you pretend. I cried a lot, my eye shades were soaked. I even cried in group session, not only for myself, but for others, and crying for others felt cathartic and right. In closing, I'd rate my overall all experience a 10 out of 10 without even getting into the amazing retreat facilities and setting, which were also top rate. I felt extremely safe. Abbie, who handles most of the logistics, is unbelievably caring and efficient. Justin and everyone on the staff has your back! Try it, you won't be disappointed.
