Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
Sahaja in eastern spirituality means ’to be born with’ and is also translated as “spontaneous” and “natural.” It represents the idea that spiritual freedom and liberation are not something external. Liberation and our being “come into being” or “get born” together.
Through medicine and practices we will open ourselves to "Sahaja", spontaneity, naturalness, freedom, which we radiate continuously but has been dampened by trauma, negative thought patterns and life circumstances. Sahaja retreat is designed to support deep healing and the remembrance of your perfect naturalness – a state of love, ease, and wholeness.
About the retreat
Upon arrival at Sahaja, nestled in a beachfront compound on 1-mile of private beach, we will greet you and the rest of the tribe for an introductory information session, including a tour of the property. There will be an opening ceremony that evening.
During the retreat, we will begin each day with a group Bufo microdose ceremony to experience the communal healing and bonding offered by the medicine, as well as get you acclimated to the medicine in preparation for a deeper ceremony later in the day. We will follow each group ceremony with a group Kundalini Pranayama (breathwork) session. Afterwards, you can enjoy a freshly prepared snack or light meal from our private chef, and take a dip into the crystalline waters of the Caribbean feeling refreshed and renewed.
Early evenings will include individual Bufo ceremonies followed by a group dinner and integration circle. We're with you every step of the way, helping you integrate your intentions into your ceremonies, and providing a safe container for profound healing. Individual integration sessions available for sensitive healing topics or ones that feel too personal to share with the group.
You are encouraged to take advantage of the privacy and profound connection with nature our lush tropical ecological preserve offers, exploring the lagoon, basking on the deck of the pool, swimming or kayaking in the fresh Caribbean waters, or reading in a hammock to the soundtrack of nature.
Sound healing sessions by our facilitator Natalie, trained by master Suren Shrestha in the ancient Tibetan tradition will also be available for an additional fee.
Our work is to provide a safe container for you to experience the deep healing of these sacred medicines. We will help you face any parts of yourself that house trauma, fear, and stagnant or dense energy. As experienced guides, we will hold space for you as you release trapped trauma and pain to heal from the root, returning to your perfect state of naturalness. When you leave your retreat, you will have a foundation of knowledge, practices, and a new tribe to help you live a life of love, ease, and wholeness.
The secretion from Bufo Alvarius or the Sonoran Desert Toad is one of the most powerful entheogens that exists. This beautiful medicine will work at the deepest level to liberate your soul through the release of deeply stored emotional trauma, repressed memories, and self limiting beliefs. Through this process it is common for one to experience non-duality and a feeling of oneness, a deep connection with source, the universe, your higher self and the embrace of pure unconditional love.
This is a deep dive with Bufo, having the opportunity to sit with the medicine many times over the course of your retreat. The medicine will ask you to be completely present and surrender all that you have known to receive the pure white light and love source energy provides. By surrendering, you transcend the ego and are able to see your truth.
“When a person smokes 5-MeO-DMT, there is an increased production and release of neurotransmitters and endorphins, such as serotonin and dopamine. They promote body regeneration, healing, and an enormous release of unconscious stress and trauma.”
Dr. Gerardo Sandoval Isaac
Kambo or the Phyllomedusa bicolor has been providing healing to indigenous peoples of the Amazon for decades. Kambo is also known for its purgative properties, assisting the energetic, emotional and physical body to release toxins, trauma, dis-ease and subconscious blockages. People who have sat with Kambo report a renewed sense of self, a release of anxiety, fear and old patterns only to establish a beautiful connection to their heart space and the world around them.
The union of these two cathartic sacraments can be a catalyst to connection with your inherent consciousness, healing body, heart and soul.
Integration is key in this process and our facilitators will be there every step of the way, creating a safe container, holding sacred space and hosting daily group and one to one integration sessions.
