RETREAT FOR WELLNESS HEALERS & ENTHUSIASTS
November 5-8, 2021
Who is this for?
Especially designed for those who have been healing others during this challenging time in humanity (therapists, chiropractors, caretakers, physicians, etc.) or for those who feel called to a deeper connection within themselves, the collective, and the earth. A reprieve from the outer chaos will provide some much-needed grounding and self-exploration. This intimate group will be limited to six participants who want to uniquely expand their contemplative practices. We will come together in a small nurturing co-created community to embark on a three-day journey of tending to mind, body, and spirit.
What is Included
- Lodging (private room at Hilton Garden Inn)
- All meals from Friday evening to Monday morning
- Two ketamine sessions
- Two spa services
- Group preparation, meditation, yoga, ceremony, and integration sessions
- One-on-one support as needed
- Hiking/trail walking
Ketamine has the potential to induce an altered state of consciousness that evokes a deeper connection with the self and the larger world. Small group sessions are led by two psychologists and a psychiatrist. Dosing for oral ketamine will be determined after meeting with our psychiatrist. While ketamine has a high safety profile, there are some conditions for which ketamine is not appropriate (to include pregnancy, untreated hypertension, unstable psychiatric condition, functional deficits from a brain injury, or active substance abuse/misuse).
Your wellness journey will take place in Pittsford, NY – A small quaint town on the Erie canal about 15 minutes from Rochester International Airport (ROC). Your hosts will work with you to arrange complimentary transportation to and from this airport or from the Rochester train station for those traveling by rail. If arriving by car, there is free parking at the Hilton Garden Inn, which also has an indoor pool and a fitness center. We will sometimes convene in the hotel, while most gatherings will be in a local spa/wellness center just steps away from the hotel. Transportation will be provided for any excursions, whether for hiking, taking in the beautiful fall foliage, outdoor ceremony, dining by the canal (as part of the included meals) or exploring the local artisan shops of Pittsford Village.
