Psilocybin Retreats-Meehl Foundation
We go through emotional stress every day of our life. We often brush it off as something normal which it sure is, until we can take no more. Our unseen wounds begin to hurt and we often bleed on people that had no role in inflicting those emotional wounds on us. This way, we pass our emotional stress on to someone else and they to somebody around them and the cycle goes on.
But it can be broken. There are other ways, better ways to deal with your emotional pain and stress. You’ll not only get relaxed mentally and physically; you’ll discover yourself anew. Magic mushroom retreats or psilocybin retreats are an extremely effective way to do that. During these retreats, you’ll experience a mystical, out-of-the-world sort of journey, possibly accompanied by visions and emotional changes.
Yet experimenting with psychedelics is unsafe unless you do so under the supervision of experienced shamans in an organized and controlled environment. That’s where organizations like The Meehl Foundation come into play, which connects you to nature and takes you back to where you belong, and that too in a modern way in an extremely risk-free and comfortable environment.
Now perhaps you’d ask how they do it and that is what we are going to explain in detail in this article. We’ll tell you all about their approach, the different retreats and ceremonies they organize, and the schedule they follow.
Meehl Foundation; What We Do And How?
At the Meehl foundation, we do things differently when compared with other organizations conducting and organizing such retreats. We do everything in the light of old wisdom, guided by the elders of ancient tribes who have been practicing these rituals and preparing psilocybin medicines for centuries. Our programs are inclusive. People of every age, race, and religion can become a part of our retreats and embark on their journey of spiritual transformation.
But the best part is yet to be unveiled. we, do not IMPOSE anything at Meehl Foundation. You can choose your healing path and do as little or as much as you feel comfortable doing. This way, we empower you and give you control of not only your healing journey but yourself as well.
From plant medicine to Kambo, and shamanic soul retrieval, we offer a wide range of retreats that you can choose from according to your emotional and spiritual needs and level of comfort. Below, we have described some of those retreats in detail.
Upon reaching the Meehl Foundation Spiritual retreat Center situated at Springdale, Washington, USA, you’ll find yourself surrounded by nature and wildlife. The center is sprawled across 45 acres with a plethora of wild plant medicines for you to explore. Everything will be done with extreme caution and under the supervision of a certified practitioner. The plants that the medicines are obtained from for your ethereal experience include:
- Cacao: a loving and gentle plant known to reduce stress medically and is famous for awakening a feeling of deep consciousness and euphoric connection on the spiritual level.
- Niños Santos: native to all the Americas, these plants are recognized as curative medicines for mind, body, and spirit.
- Yopo & Hapè: used to cure a range of physical and spiritual ailments, these two plant medicines are particularly beneficial for those who are battling any kind of addiction. There’s a variety of them available at the center and you can choose Yopo and Hape according to your spiritual needs and calling.
- Sananga: Amazonic shamans recommend these for the treatment of all ocular disorders. It improves night vision along with cleansing your aura of negative energy. It is also known to increase one’s good luck and opens the eyes of the spirit that awakens spiritual insight and vision.
What to Expect?
While embarking on the healing journey, you should keep in mind that the experiences you have during the retreat are specific to you only. And if you decide to attend another ceremony afterward as well, you should know that every individual experience is different; tailored specifically to meet your emotional, physical, and mental needs at the time.
However, commonly reported experiences include shivers, sweating, nausea, the release of negative energy and emotional trauma, deep healing, intense dreams, spiritual insights, visions, etc.
Kambo itself is not the name of any medicine. Instead, it’s the ritual that we follow to call on the healing power of the naturally produced medicine that is obtained from giant monkey tree frogs. That medicine is a waxy substance, a protective layer secreted by the frog. You should know that we deeply respect the animal that provides us with the substance. During the process, these frogs are captured humanely from the surroundings, the wax is gently scraped from their legs and they are released back into the wild after that.
The most important aspect that makes this medicine unique of all, is that it is considered a live medicine because it is obtained from a living creature without harming it, instead of dead drugs that we are often prescribed to take. This fact makes it the perfect one for spiritual ailments since it is the life force moving through the frog that guides us on our journey of healing and connects us to ancient wisdom.
What To Expect
Before getting to know what you get at the end of Kambo, you should be aware of how the process is done.
Kambo is a strong purgative and the wax is applied topically. For it to affect however, it is applied on the superficial burns that are made to sear the uppermost layer of the skin so that wax can be absorbed and be a part of your lymphatic system. It then travels to your heart and crosses the blood-brain barrier. This triggers a chain of chemical reactions in the body and as a result, what you experience is specific to you only.
During Kambo, most people reported feeling intense warmth, sweating profusely, increased heartbeat, cramps, or body pain, and sometimes mild swelling as well. With all this, comes nausea and it slowly builds, leading you to the final feeling of purge, and the ceremony ends.
But it doesn’t end as the ceremony concludes. Even several hours after experiencing Kambo, you can have heightened awareness, with a general feeling of well-being and a deeper connection with your inner self. It reboots your body mechanism in the long run, ridding you of negative emotions and bad luck.
This is an intense three-day retreat during which you will get to experience a variety of mystical activities and embark on a guided, well-arranged healing journey under the supervision of a certified practitioner. This is specifically for you if you find yourself attracted to ancient ceremonial activities and are fed up with modern-day medicinal practices.
While western medical practitioners focus on healing symptoms rather than the core problem, during soul-retrieval retreats we focus on helping you to find your missing pieces, put them together and work on a deeper level to heal your soul. The inclusive activities we organize during these retreats are drumming, medicine bag making, different exercises, healing sessions, spirit guides, dancing, music, and much more that will cleanse your mind and body completely and completely transform your way of perceiving the world around you.
What to Expect
Different people experience the aftereffects of the soul-retrieval process differently. However, it's common to go through feelings and encounter things that you might not understand as the parts of your soul rejoin you. While your body integrates those parts and gets acquainted with newly acquired energy, you can have flashbacks from past experiences and recall memories that can be pleasant or unpleasant.
But these signs are not just mental or emotional you can sometimes feel physical signs as well such as you may experience mild flu or aches. Nausea has also been reported but there is nothing to worry about in all that. It goes on until the integration process completes and as soon as it does, these signs stop immediately and you’ll find yourself plunged into a deep feeling of peace and will be able to think freely without your trauma and negative experiences burdening you.
As you go through all these changes after soul retrieval, it's crucial that you give your body and mind to integrate those changes. For this purpose, you are suggested to take some time off your work to relax and practice calming exercises; such as deep breathing, meditation, or yoga.
Other Experiences and Activities You Can Do With The Meehl Foundation
We, at The Meehl Foundation, present you with a variety of options that you can choose from according to your needs, preferences, and level of comfort. Other than the activities mentioned above, you can also participate in a psilocybin ceremony during which you experience a 5-hour mushroom retreat. It also includes other activities that help integrate the experience and reconnect with your spiritual self; such as drumming, dancing, and different ancient rituals. All of this is done under the supervision of an experienced shaman in a modern, comfortable environment.
Moreover, you can also be a part of the Cacao ceremony. During this, cacao beans are crushed and mixed with water, cacao butter, and a bit of sugar to make the taste bearable since these beans can taste bitter. After the intake, you participate in the integration activities which are the same as the activities done during other retreats and ceremonies. You can choose to have your experience in quiet and peace or in the rhythm of soulful music when you do it for the first time.
To summarize it all, even though these ceremonies were frowned upon and considered unsafe, or even dangerous in the past, now more and more people are turning towards finding natural remedies for physical problems and emotional issues. The researchers have also finally started supporting the use of these medicines obtained from nature and encouraging people now to return to treatments obtained from ancient wisdom.
