Ketamine Wellness Retreat

With Michelle Swagler, PhD, Lorna Busch, PhD, Gota Cebrero, E-RYT 500 and Naveen Thomas, MD

November 17 - 20, 2023

This retreat is created for individuals looking to expand self-awareness and deepen connection—to the inner healer, nature, and community. We are so grateful to host this experience at the Thanksgiving House, fully immersed in beauty and nature. We create a small, intimate community of 6 participants and 4 facilitators. The retreat nurtures mind, body, and spirit, by including all meals and lodging, 2 Ketamine sessions, a spa service (massage or reiki), yoga, meditation, ceremony, hiking, individual support as needed, as well as preparation for the Ketamine journeys and integration of the experiences.

A highlight of this retreat is Gota’s calming presence and expertise as he guides participants on the beautiful path of yoga.  By steeping in the nurturing and calming asanas woven through mindfulness, attendees will be invited into an embodied practice to support a state of physical and spiritual expansiveness.  We will engage in poses held on the earth that help connect with mind, body, and breath. In this way, the flow of Prana can be restored to create balance and harmony. Gota’s yoga sessions are a beautiful part of preparing mind, body, and spirit to receive the medicine.

The retreat begins on Friday at 2:00 pm, and concludes on Monday at 11:00 am.

Triple room: $1,600
Double room: $1,900
Single room: $2,400

The only additional cost is the intake session with our prescriber and the medicine ranging from $225-289, depending on state of residence.

Registration deadline is October 1, 2024 to allow time to schedule with our MD and for the prescription to arrive in time for the retreat.
