If you’ve taken 5-MeO-DMT before, you have a good understanding of just how special the experience is. That said, the standard 5-MeO DMT retreat might seem a bit repetitive if you’ve done them a few times. Instead, you should look for something a little extra.
At Tandava Retreats, we host a fair few special retreats and events in addition to our regular offerings. While these experiences still involve 5-MeO DMT, they usually have a unique theme or focal point that might entice you into joining.
What’s Different About Our Retreats
You might remember your first 5-MeO experience fondly. However, it’s also possible that you were naive and didn’t give the psychedelic medicine its due. You won’t miss out on anything with our retreats. We do our best to make the psychedelic experience as enriching as possible for all our clients. Here’s how it works.
Integration Done Properly
One of the things that cheaper retreat centers tend to miss is the integration process. Constructing a container for your 5-MeO experience takes time and effort. Usually, this can only be accomplished by a trained professional. That’s where our guides come in.
For every 5-MeO-DMT experience that we offer, our guides put in hours of prep work to make sure that you extract the most from your retreat. We are willing to shape your experience to your personal beliefs and life journey. As a result, you can learn the lessons in a way that resonates with you.
Following the retreat, we usually do at least a couple of Zoom calls to help you merge the lessons from the experience into your worldview. This helps you separate the 5-MeO experience from the rest of your life properly. We certainly won’t leave you stranded if you feel uncomfortable with the new feelings you’ve experienced.
Our Professional Staff
At our retreats, we involve all the right people. These people are trained to identify unnecessary behavior patterns that are setting you back in life. They’ll listen to you attentively and then draw from their vast experience to help you solve your shortcomings.
You can learn more about our team and their backstories on our website. Our founder, Joël, has set out an underlying philosophy at Tandava Retreats that fuses Eastern and Western integration processes. This includes non-dual yogic philosophy. Our head of education, Victoria, is an active student of various plant medicines as well as the Bufo Alvarius toad. Victoria’s passion is to share her insights with retreat participants. Her teachings adopt the lens of the hero’s journey.
We spare no expense in making the retreat center as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Some of our facilities include a pool, hot tub, and Turkish steam sauna. You’ll have ample room on our property to move around. Not to mention, our chefs cook delicious meals for the whole group.
A Magical Backdrop
One of the main attractions at our retreats is the overwhelmingly beautiful scenery that surrounds our center. Located in Tepoztlan, Mexico, our facilities are a 90-minute drive south of Mexico City. The landscape nearby is filled with stunning mountain vistas and refreshingly green forests.
An essential component of our retreats is our trip to the artesian market in Tepoztlan. There you’ll have the chance to experience everything the market and the town has to offer. On certain retreats, we also offer guided hiking trips.
Our Latest Special Retreats
Recently, we’ve run a couple of special retreats that we’re quite proud of. We’re likely to keep offering them to interested individuals in the future. These are:
- The Women’s Retreat
- The Meditation Retreat
Let’s discuss them in detail.
7-Day Women’s Holistic 5-MeO-DMT Group Retreat
Looking to go on a life-changing retreat with several like-minded women? Our 7-day women’s group retreat is the perfect fit for women looking for a different perspective on a 5-MeO retreat.
Our last women’s retreat coincided with the strawberry full moon. As such, we prepared special activities to end Spring on a high note. Such activities included a full-moon cacao ceremony and a mountain offering ritual.
Each women’s retreat is open to all who identify as women. Including our trans and queer family.
What To Expect During The Women’s Retreat
2 5-MeO-DMT Ceremonies
Each women’s retreat includes 2 Bufo ceremonies under the supervision of two of our expert guides, both of whom are female. We don’t rush you into the ceremony on the first day. Rather, the first ceremony usually takes place on the morning of your second day.
While some retreat centers use venom from the Sonoran desert toad, we decided to use synthetic 5-MeO-DMT. There is no difference between either of these psychedelic drugs when it comes to the quality of the experience. However, there is a difference when it comes to the harm done to the toad. We find that it’s more ethical to use synthetic 5-MeO-DMT.
The Temezcal Sweat Lodge Ceremony
The Temezcal Ceremony originates from Central America and is commonly practiced in Mexico. During this ceremony, everyone enters the sweat lodge and the temperature only climbs higher. These ceremonies often involve singing and chanting. Some might not be able to take the heat. This is typically an extremely spiritual and reinvigorating experience. One that rivals that of certain psychoactive drugs.
Feminine Embodiment Workshops
Part of what gives our women’s retreat a unique twist is our feminine embodiment workshops. We designed our workshops to help women step into a genuine expression of their femininity. Reflect on how to become your best self under the guidance of our professionals. It’s clear to see how this fits in with the general theme of self-exploration.
We use neurofeedback protocols to help you get an understanding of your brain function. It’s an advanced technique that is based on cognitive neuroscience. Our devices will show you exactly how your brain is developing following your 5-MeO experience.
5-MeO is known to increase neuroplasticity. A 2019 study noted that consumers of 5-MeO-DMT saw a sustained enhancement in life satisfaction following the use of the psychedelic drug. Indeed, increased neuroplasticity implies that your brain is forming new pathways more easily which helps you accommodate new perspectives. We take both scientific and spiritual exploration seriously and fuse insights from the two in our practices.
5-day 5-MeO-DMT Meditation Entrainment Group Retreat in Tepoztlán, Mexico
If you are an experienced meditator, then this retreat is for you. The objective of this retreat is to assist you in realizing and anchoring the Samadhi state of consciousness. If you are already familiar with psychedelic drugs, then you might have already realized the Samadhi state before. Little did you know that you can trigger this state internally with the use of meditation, breathwork, and yoga.
Those who seek inner transformation often find that they do this to affect change in the world. This retreat gives you the tools you need to embody your full potential.
What To Expect During The Meditation Group Retreat
The Samadhi State
The Samadhi state is also known as the state of joyful calm. As such, you become unperturbed by any ego-driven thoughts. When people refer to ego death in discussing their 5-MeO experiences, they are likely discussing the Samadhi state.
However, this Samadhi state can be reached through many yogic traditions, not just using psychedelic medicine.
Vipassana means “to see things as they really are”. Therefore, this style of meditation can go a long way to help you acquire a certain clarity of mind. As you practice this meditation style, you will be fully aware of everything internally. This will serve to enhance your consciousness.
Daily Low-Dose 5-MeO
To enhance your meditation, we will give you a low dosage of 5-MeO-DMT every day that you’re at the retreat. This is only a microdose, one so minimal that the 5-MeO won’t hamper your ability to meditate, it will only facilitate it.
Plenty of Instruction
We want to give you all the tools that you could possibly use to help raise your state of consciousness. Meditation requires lots of hard work that is performed with intent. To help this along, we include several personal interviews and discussions to help you refine your meditation process.
Awaken Your Body
Yoga exercises and breathwork are essential to the meditation process. You’ll become more in tune with the natural processes that underpin your bodily function when you engage in such activities. We lead several yoga and breathwork sessions during this retreat. Especially in the mornings to help set the pace for the day.
Keep In Touch
We are always looking to connect with individuals who share our passion for 5-MeO-DMT or are just curious about how our retreats work. We’ll let you know when we have special upcoming retreats. The next Tandava Retreat we offer might be precisely the one you were looking for. They fill up fast, so stay tuned.
