Our purpose

Elevating psychedelic care

Psychedelic therapy can spark new paradigms of health, connection, and harmony. However, focusing on the peak experience isn't enough to fulfill that potential. Holistic and ongoing community-based support is needed to translate the journey into grounded and lasting personal and societal change.

The psychedelic space has a preparation and integration debt. With the help of our partners and collaborators, we are elevating the standards of care by helping journeyers, retreats, and facilitators fulfill the true promise of psychedelics.

The problem

The current harm and support gap

As awareness of psychedelic benefits increase, more people use them, and more people are being hurt. The mainstream culture of chasing peak experiences and the current support systems are lacking in effectiveness and integrity of care.

The core pillars of our approach

01.

Every day is a ceremony

Chasing peak experiences is a common pathway towards a lack of safety and transformation. We’re in the less psychedelics, more integration school of thought. Every moment in our lives is an invitation to peel back the layers, deepen our wellness practices, and connect to community. Through daily intentionality and dedication, we view integration as a continually unfolding journey of beauty and wisdom.

02.

Breaking the silos

When it comes to psychedelics, no one has all the answers on how to best carry the space forward. And holding it all on our own is just falling victim to the trappings of outdated structures that ask us to carry so much, for so long, all on our own. We're all about finding synergies with like-minded partners who are also ready to step into a new way of service. And then amplifying each other through mutual support and co-creation.

03.

Nurturing all sides

When it comes to elevating psychedelic care, we can't do that well without supporting the service providers and the journeyers going through their offerings. That's why we help train and support providers while providing a growing ecosystem of integration resources for medicine seekers. We have built scalable systems and programs that can feed into both seamlessly and meet the urgent needs we are seeing.

04.

Ethics at the core

Our lives and what we create are only as good as the quality of our relationships. We strive to show up in ways that favour collaboration over silos, regeneration over extraction, intention over speed, and purpose over profit. We are in sacred service to a greater story than ourselves, and we are a committed ally in the ethical and effective expansion of the psychedelic space.
