But before you attend one of our plant teacher retreats, we will assess your particular needs and work with you to find out what you would like to achieve. It’s very important to us that we find out as much as possible before your appointment. For this reason, we ask that you apply here to give us a basic understanding of your current situation and to be aware of any medical conditions that may affect the experience. We also offer you a free 20 minute ‘Introduction to Integration’ call with our Coach Lenna. Find out more about that and connect with her here.


Once we have made contact with you, we will plan a customised plant teacher experience to meet your personal needs and expectations. We will also send you a brief document outlining how the day will work and what you need to do in preparation.

The substance we use is kind to your body. It does not require any strict diet preparation but we will give you some suggestions on how a healthy diet and regime can optimise the experience.

Our guides are not psychologists or therapists in the traditional sense of the words but we have hundreds of guided journeys under our belt. The beauty of these compounds used in a correct manner is that YOU unlock your own potential. The compound accesses parts of your psyche which may have laid dormant for many years or even a lifetime and unlocks the energy stored away.

We always start with an introduction talk to the substance and how the substance works on multiple levels within the mind. After we answer any questions or anxieties you may have we then offer a relaxing head and neck massage to soothe any physical manifestations of anxiety.

Once you have ingested – in a pleasant tea – we will sit with you and meditate on the intention you specify. As well as helping you through any periods of resistance that may arise.

As the subconcious is brought to the fore, you will have a wonderful opportunity to see problems and past experiences from a totally different perspective. Your normal mode of operation – your Default Mode Network to give it its correct name – is temporarily disabled and you will have a chance to see what is behind this automatic mental security system.

When the guards to your everyday mental chatter stand down and parts of your mind are accessed for the first time in a very long time, you may experience periods of complete joy and bliss as well as more challenging moments as you begin to make sense of the complex matrix that resides in all of us.

Our guides are there at all times to make sure you are safe, comfortable and supported. If you need to talk, we are there. If you feel the need to be emotional, we are there. If you need to laugh, we will laugh with you. It is a wonderful journey and you will be supported throughout.

Our carefully selected music will assist you in moving through different phases of your journey. Eyeshades are recommended (and supplied) to fully emerse yourself in the experience.

Once the experience begins to lift, we will bring you back to the present with care and attention. There is no strict start and end time to a session and we will not insist you leave us if you don’t feel comfortable and able to do so.

Once you are happy to leave Sanctum, we will (with your permission) send you a personal after-care email with suggestions based on our experience to take forward in your life journey. Make a positive change in your life and apply for an experience now.
