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.

Integrating the Experience With Alternative Medicines

Integration is as important, if not more important, than the sacred medicine healing itself. Oftentimes, after a powerful experience, many think all their problems are solved. They finally understand what they need to do, how they need to change, with whom they need to make amends. Under the color of sacred medicine, these understandings or promises seem to be imprinted forever… and sometimes they are, but most times they are not. Normally, real change requires a lot more work.


Why Is Integration Important?


As practitioners who have frequented Ayahuasca centers in South America, there seems to be a noticeable absence of integration counseling or any type of post-retreat follow-up. It is almost as if most traditional plant medicine centers don’t fully understand what westerners are up against when they return home.


Naturally occurring psychedelics are powerful medicines, but their true healing potential requires collaboration, creativity, and determination, and for most how to integrate sacred medicine ceremonies isn’t intuitive. A person might have a life-changing experience, but how exactly does one process it so it improves the quality of their life. This type of integration counseling is overlooked in the overall healing approach of most plant medicine centers, although a supported integration is a fundamental part of the success of sacred medicine healings.

How To Integrate a Psychedelic Experience?


For most, the how is a huge question:

  • How do I get the most out of my healing experience?
  • How do I maximize my Bufo Alvarius, ayahuasca, San Pedro, magic mushrooms ceremonies?
  • How can I change to improve my life?

When a person is ready to begin the process, it’s primordial to give him/her guidance as to how to maximize the experience, whether the approach is for healing or learning. Orientation meetings, guidance for intention setting, and the space for group or individual sharings are great tools, to begin with.


Daily practice is key to real transformation, to show up consistently for oneself. Alternative practices such as meditation, breathwork, yoga, or bodywork, helps one get in touch with their body, and relate to it in a more embodied and respectful way. This can be guided and in group form or individually, but what matters is to develop a frequent or daily practice, something that connects one back to the core, the intentions, and the healing process one received and will take home.


In this way, a meditation or yoga practice becomes so much more. It transforms into a commitment to oneself, to the person whom one wants to be, to the healing, to the happiness, and when practiced every day becomes a renewed promise to this potential.

Toward the end of a person’s process, it’s also very important to start preparing them for their departure. Prompting guests to synthesize what they’ve learned from their healings and experiences, and develop strategies to have in place when confronted with tests, triggers, etc. is a good way to do it.


That is to ask:

  • How do you plan to change?
  • What do you plan to do differently?


We always say the real work begins when a person goes back home. The medicine will test individuals to see if they really learned anything or have truly changed. We encourage guests to begin thinking about this in advance of their departure just so they are prepared. Also, there are highly skilled entheogen integration coaches and somatic therapists out there, so people have additional, professional support when they leave a very powerful experience. Integration is a profound part of plant medicine and Bufo alvarius experiences. People need to be guided, feel supported, which must continue long after they leave the retreat center.
