What Makes Tandava the Most Effective 5-Meo-DMT Retreat?

Healing Crafted to Your Individual Needs

Individual retreats are perfect for those who are seeking a more personalized, private experience with 5-MeO-DMT. With our individualized retreats, we offer a group/private hybrid model. This means that your retreat container is curated to your individual needs, your two weeks of preparation work will be done 1:1 with your practitioner, while here at the center your sessions with 5-MeO-DMT will be private, you will have personal 1:1 integration touch ins, as well as private neurofeedback sessions. Our center takes only a small amount of participants each week to ensure that each person receives individual attention, this also means you can enjoy the benefits of the group atmosphere. Participants can join in group activities such as daily yoga, meditation, breathwork, and group sharing and integration circles in the evenings. We feel that this model is the most effective way to get the best results from your experience, as it allows us to keep your container malleable and kept to your unique process.

Everyone is on their own unique journey and travels their own path to surrender, which is why we created a container specifically designed for your processes. These 5 day retreat containers can be booked anytime to provide the most convenience for your scheduling. 

Whether you’re joining us to refine and deepen your self-understanding, heal from traumas, or bring your true self into the light, our team has the tools to support you.

The Process

We will begin your process several weeks before you arrive in Tepoztlan, with a thorough intake and screening process so we can ensure your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual safety at every step.

Then we start our preparatory process through Zoom calls and journaling, which enables us to tailor a unique container-based on where you are in your journey and what your personal process looks like.

We utilize techniques ranging from classic yogic and Buddhist approaches to Western psychiatric and clinical practices combined with loving hospitality to ensure you will be held in every way at your individual retreat.

At our retreats, we will create a customized container for you. Some of the tools we use to do so are:

5-MeO-DMT/Bufo Alvarius


Optimized diet




Sound healing

Spiritual progress coaching

Shadow work

Refining your vision and mission to help navigate life

Neurofeedback/Brain entrainment

group yoga
sound bowls
Quinoa Salad

After Your Stay

After your retreat, we will be working with you during your integration process to ensure a smooth transition back into your daily life. You will be given a specialized integration plan and will have at least 4 aftercare/integration calls with your personal integration specialist via zoom. Extended integration packages are also available for either three, six, or nine months.

Or that your container is grounded in the yogic experience. Whatever your journey looks like, Tandava Retreat’s practitioners and integration specialists have the backgrounds to support you – ranging from the classic mystery schools to western psychotherapy – and we will ensure the right guides are on hand for your retreat experience.

What are Tandava Retreats?

Tandava Retreats are professionally guided wellness retreats focusing on 5-MeO-DMT. These retreats allow you to explore the deepest realms of consciousness, shift patterns that are keeping you feeling stuck, and put you back in control of your life.

We are raising the bar for spiritual retreats and retreat centers with our focus on creating a cohesive, guided experience in a carefully calibrated, safe container. Our retreats were created to give participants the space to engage in deep introspective work while having the love and support of their practitioners and the group to handle whatever may arise during their time with us.

At our retreats, you will experience a combination of meditation, breathwork, yogic philosophy, western therapeutic practices, and safe work with entheogenic medicines. Tandava Retreats are only led by experienced practitioners and teachers who have dedicated years to mastering their craft and each retreat comes with an integration protocol, ensuring the retreat can have a lasting impact on your daily life, long after the medicine has faded.


A Safe Container for You to Let Go of Control

We communicate before, during, and after your retreat to ensure the container you have for your entire experience is one where your boundaries are respected and you are safely held to take the next step on your individual journey.

Enhanced Satisfaction in Life 

A 2019 European study reported that after a single session of 5-MeO-DMT, participants showed a marked sustained enhancement in satisfaction with life, mindfulness-related capacities, and a decrement of psychopathological symptoms

Sustained Aftercare and Integration

The critical part of a successful 5-MeO-DMT experience is taking what is learned and integrating it into your life. We ensure you have that through our ongoing integration protocol where you work with your integration specialist for several weeks to get the most out of your experience with us.

Experienced and Learned Guides
