5-Day New Year's Eve Transformation Retreat

Mark this moment as a pivot point in your life.

For those who want to answer the call of plant medicine and access their inner wisdom to transform their life.

29 Dec 2023 - 2 Jan 2024

Messines, (Faro) Portugal

You’ve been on a healing journey and you’re asking yourself:

  • How can I identify and break through what’s holding me back?
  • Is there happiness and peace beyond anxiety & depression?
  • What’s my purpose in life?
  • Can plant medicine help me access my healing on a deeper level?

If you don’t heal your wounds and traumas, you continue repeating the same patterns over and over again. Then you find yourself dealing with the same character types, with different names and faces.

When your everyday life is full of distractions, pressures, anxieties or stress, you aren’t able to be present and focus on what really matters: the here and now, authentic connection and peace.

  • Come nourish your Spirit, soul, and body.
  • Break the patterns of your past.
  • Discover the life you’ve been dreaming of.
  • Work through your blocks & learn tools to transform your daily life.
  • Experience a safe, small group (8-12 max), psilocybin ceremonies of inner healing.
  • Usher in the new calendar year with deep inner work.

I have never felt safer and more protected by the love, kindness, and wisdom of your beautiful spirits. For someone like me, who is locked in her own world and finds it difficult to meet new people, having a group retreat was a truly humbling and inspiring experience.

It really made me realize that we all struggle, we are all lost at times, but we are all unique and beautiful, and we don’t have to be alone on this journey called life, and with the guidance of Kasham, truly shamanic energy, we can find balance. It was a beautiful thing to lose the illusion of control and let whatever came to me because once I accepted that it wasn’t about what I wanted, but what I needed, I found a peaceful place in my heart, my home.

Paula Google Review https://g.co/kgs/YMLBbG

“The first most beautiful, meaningful cathartic spiritual experience that I have experienced. The ceremony was conducted in a such loving, comfortable manner surrounded by nature and lovely people, meditation with soundbath. Personally Kasham was like a mother to me during the ceremony, I felt protected and loved no matter what. Kasham organises and plans out the days of the retreat in a way that nothing is rushed and all flows naturally.

I’m looking forward for another retreat meditation with her and for more healing to happen in her presence. I highly recommend.”

Your Facilitators

Intuitive Kasham Retreat Facilitator

Leader- Curandera

I reach into the depths, using my strong intuition to create a safe space for personal transformation. I’ve been initiated in Peru as a Curandera (Healer), serving medicine as a sacred form of healing.

I knew since I was a young child that I wanted to help others. I have been an Intuitive since childhood. The first career aspiration I had was to be “an ambulance driver.” (I graduated from paramedic school in 1998.) During my life, I can see how each career choice, each experience, each teaching moment, has supported doing this work. Although I’ve been helping others heal since the mid ’90s, the medicine path was never on her radar. The medicines themselves chose and taught me. Once I accepted this path, trusted/experienced teachers and mentors showed up to help guide me and confirm best practices. I grew up in the US, but have lived in Haiti, South Korea and now Portugal, sharing my gifts in these countries, as well as multiple other countries for short term trips. As I live and travel abroad, I continue to improve my language skills and, more importantly, integrate diverse cultures into my life.

In 2013, I completed the Advanced Angel Tarot Card Reader course from HayHouse Publications. I’m a member of the International Healers Association, and I am an Internationally Accredited Shamanic Practitioner.

I am able to communicate in English, Haitian Creole, and am conversational in French, Spanish, and basic Korean.

It’s part of our commitment to helping the world heal and making sacred ceremony available to more people.
  • Is a Psilocybin session safe? 

    Yes. But of course there can be critical circumstances that need to be checked first. We carefully screen the health condition and medications of our guests to ensure that we can safely provide Psilocybin. Additionally we only work with highly trained and experienced facilitators and guides. All facilitators during the ceremonies are very experienced with the medicine and are able to create a safe space of support for all guests equally. Psilocybin is generally very safe when working with it responsibly. 

    Psilocybin is cautioned or strongly advised against under these special circumstances:

    • People with medically diagnosed psychoses, borderline disorder, bipolar disorders and schizophrenia
    • Chronic high blood pressure and unstable heart conditions
    • Other medications that can be unsafe with most psychedelics: Depressants (and sleeping pills) Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), Anti-hypertensives (blood pressure medications), Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs). The medication must be stopped at least 14 days before the ceremony.

    The experience of Psilocybin can be affected negatively under these circumstances:

    • Drugs that should not be combined with Psilocbyin before (at least one week): Amphetamines (like Crystal Meth), MDMA (Ecstasy), Cocaine or any psychedelic Ayahuasca or LSD.
    • Alcohol should be avoided for at least three days before the ceremony.
    • Other medications that should be discontinued: allergy medications like antihistamines, cough syrup with codeine, sedatives, tranquilizers (Benzos), amphetamines (Adderall), some hypertensive medications, sympathomimetic amines (including pseudoephedrine and ephedrine), carbamazipine, methylphemidate (Ritalin), macromerine, phenelanine, tyrosine, tryptophan and asarone.
  • What dose will I take in my session? There are many factors that determine the exact weight of dried medicine you’ll take. We have a 1:1 session as well as your full honesty/disclosure on your registration to help inform dosing. Generally speaking, a session is a “Moderate Dose- Level 3 of 5” which is typically 1.8g-3.5g, which is an inward journey, with the intention for deep healing.  All doses are customized to each participant.
