Don't trip alone!

5-MeO-DMT is by far the strongest Entheogen known to man. It is important to know that consuming this compound by yourself can be extremely dangerous. Firstly, it is known that during the experience people can stop breathing without noticing it. And secondly, if vomiting takes place, you must be rolled over on your left side, to prevent choking while laying on your back. It is, therefore, fundamental to have someone watching over you.

Introduction

Words alone can not describe a full 5-MeO-DMT experience. Nevertheless, this short introduction attempts to explain a fraction of it and its healing capacity. During the journey, the subtle strength of this sacred medicine will definitely be felt, as it is the most powerful entheogen known to man! Whether you smoke the secretion of the toad or the synthetic compound, 5-MeO-DMT will take you to deep and unexplored levels of self-exploration.

 

In most cases, the experience can take you outside the boundaries of ego-identity, where the mind dissolves into light-patterns with no concept of time or space. Fear, doubts, and attachments dissolve into an omnipresent peace, and awareness expands at the rhythm of great waves, bringing overwhelming feelings of love, compassion, and unity. Many describe this experience as being one with God's consciousness or the infinite field of intelligent energy. Mostly, during this episode of intense sensations, the heart will open up in indescribable ways, and in that particular moment, the re-calibration of traumatic events and emotional healing may occur, as feelings of comprehension, acceptance, and forgiveness are fully embraced. After this stage, the so-longed relief is followed by a peaceful state of mind, of feeling one with everything.

 

This introduction describes a common Bufo (Incilius alvarius) session which can apply to most people, and yet every individual's experience is unique! The journey can, therefore, have different outcomes depending on the person's mental and physical health. It is important to fill in the medical form during the booking process before attending any Bufo session, to be sure that the participant is not exposed to any risk.

Akinti Kano

My journey with psychedelics started years ago when I had the opportunity to facilitate at a well-known Ayahuasca center in the Amazonian jungle of Peru. From there on, my knowledge and experience with alternative medicins expanded, as well as my social network along with new opportunities of working in other retreat centers. In time, the Bufo alvarius medicine came along. After dieting the sacred toad's secretion in the traditional Shipibo way, I made a surprising but impressive connection with its spirit and chose to follow this path with deep awareness, respect, and gratitude for the creature and its medicine.

 

During the diet, a profound concern regarding the misuse and abuse of these special creatures arose. And now that the substance becomes more and more popular, I am committed to supporting responsible harvesting and use of this medicine. I made it my mission to seek a balance between serving the sacred toad's medicine, and supporting the species through sustainability projects and protection. I only work with sustainably harvested medicine and support the local communities from the Sonoran desert who work hard for the conservation of the species.

Set and Setting

MINDSET

All sessions include an assistant facilitator who will care for the well-being and safety of the participants. Together we will guide the course of the experience and hold the space most respectfully and responsibly. During the session, we will go together through the preparation steps (see session program) and bring new awareness to the intentions discussed earlier in the program. After serving the medicine, we will hold a safe space while trying to interfere as least as possible in the interaction between the participant and the substance, as it is the medicine and your approach to it that will bring the real healing! We're just here to share it in the best possible way and help you integrate the experience into your daily life. It is why our sessions include integration as part of the healing process.

 

SETTING

Events of more than one day are usually in nature, which means that the location was chosen for its beautiful and natural surroundings, far away from inharmonic city energies and distracting noises. Day events or private sessions often take place in urban contexts. Nevertheless, we do our best to provide or choose a calm and peaceful environment so that the healing session can be experienced in a pleasant, comfortable, and safe place.

About the Session

A good and effective Bufo session is one of comfort, trust, and safety. We build the events we organize on these pillars and offer complementary activities and therapies to help integrate the experience. For us, as facilitators, it is fundamental to look over the participants, and to assist with anything they need, both during the sessions as during the stay.

 

PREPARATION

The difference between a psychedelic journey and a healing experience with psychedelics has to do with the approach to the substance and the reasons for doing it. Preparing your intentions for the session or event is fundamental, and we will walk you through that process.

 

THE SESSIONS

All our events take place in natural settings, where the sounds of nature and wildlife are the background melodies of your healing experience. Most events will be up to 4 - 5 people max. Private sessions might take place in urban contexts, but we will do our best to make you feel comfortable and connected to nature. We are all about safety and we approach this aspect both from the quality of the medicine (sustainable and natural 5-MeO-DMT), the amount we serve in each dose, the set and setting, the care of the participants, the preparation, the experience, and the integration process.

 

INTEGRATION

The medicine provides the experience, but we believe that integration is equally important for true healing. During our events, group meetings will take place daily to share and discuss each one of the sessions and the evolution of the intentions. Furthermore, we will continue to have weekly individual encounters up until 4 weeks after the event to keep on unraveling the potential of the experience. After a 5-MeO-DMT session, grounding is necessary for some participants. We will guide you through this important process with the help of medicinal herbs, bodywork, and meditations.

 

BOOKINGS

I will be guiding or organizing 5-MeO-DMT events throughout the year. Individual sessions are possible! Contact me for more information regarding dates and locations. So far, the places I mostly visit are Mexico, Ecuador, Spain, and The Netherlands. Most of the time, I work with the support of my partner, who also supports integration processes through medicinal plants and energy work. For upcoming events please check the schedule.

I’ve done several sessions with Akinti and have always felt safe, respected, and taken care of. What I’ve liked the most about his practice, is that he holds a space in which you can have a direct and profound connection with the medicine, without feeling that someone is interfering. Thank you so much for your peaceful ways!
