7-Day Transformation Retreat Sept 2024

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.

12-18 Sept 2024

Santa Barbara de Nexe, (Faro) Portugal

Who is this Retreat For?

We welcome all experience levels. Those who have stepped into their journey of growth and healing tend to resonate deeply with the workshops, tools, activities and programming of our retreats. 

Everything is customized to the individuals in our small group

Feeling “the call” of the medicine simply means that you have an inner voice drawing you, inviting you to sit with the medicine. You’re not taking the medicine to escape, numb or “for fun”. You’re not taking the ceremony out of guilt or because it’s the trendy thing to do. 

We have fun at retreats and we also have serious moments of deep exploration and connection. 

We only allow a limited number of participants (typically we have 6-8 participants and 2-3 staff) so that each person gets the personal attention they need and deserve. 

A small group dynamic supports a safe space for connection, reflection and 1:1 time with the facilitator(s). 

We recognize that being in a small group is outside many participants’ comfort zone. Every client who was initially apprehensive about being in a group setting has given us feedback that they would hands-down choose another small group retreat with us again.  We invite you to step outside your comfort zone for these 4-7 days and see if you’d agree: Our small group dynamic is safe and supportive. 

(There is also time in the schedule every day to spend some alone time in your room, on the terraces, in the pool or in nature surrounding the center.)

Those who are ready to explore the deeper layers of themselves while being held and supported in this safe, nonjudgmental space. Be open to learning more about yourself: your patterns, your strengths, your gifts, your purpose, your shadow and more

Our intention is to dive within ourselves, seek our own inner wisdom, and observe without judgment what is revealed. 

Our experienced facilitators are here to support you and to offer guidance if asked, but not to interpret your journey. We believe that everyone has their answers within; we support you in accessing these answers. The time of the Guru is over. 

Integration support is included and we believe is a critical step to long-term success. 

We’ve observed that those who aren’t willing to make an effort- we invite each person to take baby steps– when they leave retreat, often find themselves in the same patterns and mindsets, frustrated with life once again. 

At retreat, we have sharing circles and 1:1 time available with facilitators. Participants also have integration buddies, lifetime access to two different private groups only for those who have journeyed with us, and a post session 1:1 with Intuitive Kasham

If you feel it’s needed, we also offer additional sessions at a discounted rate for the tribe!

There is no time like the present to make the most of your life! No matter what you’ve been through, there is hope for your present and your future. 

I (Kasham) say this from both experience and observation. 

While we can’t guarantee that everything will turn towards the positive for you immediately, we have witnessed (and the overwhelming feedback is) massive change and growth in just a few short days- a truly pivotal moment in the lives of those who show up and do the work. 

Who is this Retreat NOT For?

We find that when people use ceremony as a “last resort” and expect the journey to instantly “cure/fix” them, this often leads to major disappointment and often regression. 

The ceremony is simply a (potent) tool in one’s journey. There is responsibility to integrate- post ceremony work that is vital. We are here to support you in your integration process.

Documentaries and Youtubers often share stories of curing and quick fixes. While I have witnessed this firsthand, there is also responsibility to integrate; more likely than not, the ceremony helps us discover a different perspective. Integrating this perceptive, slowly and gradually, into your life is where the long-term success comes in. 

Sacred medicines must be honored and treated with respect. We never offer recreational use, as we believe this is misuse and abuse of nature’s medicine

Our focus and intention is an inward journey of healing and personal growth. 

Even if you don’t have any major traumas in your life, we can always learn and heal unhealthy mindsets, perspectives and find answers from our inner wisdom. We are ever expanding, growing, healing and changing.

Part of the beauty of how this medicine works is through the power of surrender and trust. 

At our retreats, every workshop, dose and retreat is customized to each individual in attendance. Because of this, not every factor is able to be disclosed to you in advance. 

We offer lots of details and upfront information so our participants are well informed and prepared. However, not everything is controllable – a fly in the ceremony room, a change in the schedule, not knowing the precise menu in advance, etc.

If you are someone who is not able to lean into the experience and trust the process, this retreat is not the right fit.

For people who are generally in good health, these medicines are extremely safe

For certain medical and mental health conditions, as well as certain pharmaceutical medications and supplements, there are contraindications. We screen each client and offer alternative options to those who are not a good fit at time of application. We take supporting you in your healing journey seriously and have lots of experience and training behind us.

Please note that not all diagnoses are excluding factors. We work with a wide variety of issues and diagnoses. 

Openness and honesty are critical to the safety of you, the other participants, the retreat center, us and the entire plant community. 

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.

When you lack clarity of purpose, you feel lost in life, without a path to walk towards.

 

  • 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 (6-8 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

Kasham
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 an energy exchange and we want to make this transformational retreat available to as many as possible. No matter which contribution tier you choose, you’ll receive equal treatment. 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.
