We will not be liable for any damages arising from the transactions between You and any third party merchants or service providers or for any information appearing on third party merchant or service provider sites or any other site linked to our Sites.

Without limiting the foregoing, we do not accept any liability for damage to Your computer system or loss of data that results from Your use of the Sites and We cannot guarantee that any files that You download are free from viruses, contamination or destructive features. While we use all reasonable endeavors to correct any errors or omissions as soon as practicable once they have been brought to our attention, we do not warrant that the information on the Sites itself will be free from errors or omissions. We do not warrant that the Website will be available uninterrupted and in a fully operating condition.

Access to the Sites may be suspended temporarily and without notice in the case of system failure, maintenance or repair or for reasons reasonably beyond our control. All content and services on the Sites are provided on an ‘as is’ and ‘as available’ basis. We do not make any representation or give any warranty, and hereby disclaim all express or implied warranties, in respect of the Sites or its content, including, without limitation, any advice given (on a personal or general basis) and statements made by advertisers on or via the Sites, including without limitation the implied warranties of non-infringement, merchantability, data accuracy, fitness for a particular purpose and quiet enjoyment. Any decisions or action taken by You on the basis of information provided on or via the Sites are at Your sole discretion and risk and You should obtain individual professional advice where necessary.

LEGALITY OF PSILOCYBIN:

Retreat prices include: massage, session facilitation and integrations services. You are NOT paying for the cost of mushrooms or truffles for your session, you ARE paying for the time the guides spend with you during your session and for the running costs of the retreat. Guests will be gifted tea at the discretion of the guide at the retreat under their guidance and our collective decision.

Privacy and Security

Our retreat is on private, gated and secure land. We will not be interacting with the public or carrying the mushrooms on our person while outside the center. We are working with open-minded, loving individuals and volunteers that are dedicated to potential and health. One of our guides will be present at all times during the experience to ensure the health, safety and comfort of our guests.

ATTENDEE CONDUCT AT SESSIONS and MEDICAL INFORMATION

We reserve the right to remove attendees who do not comply with the proper registration, security procedures or requirements of attendee conduct outlined below at any point during a therapy session without a refund.

  1. Sanctum Spain reserves the right to remove anyone who disobeys any requirements, procedures, policies or regulations of a retreat.
  2. You must not defame, disrespect, abuse, harass, harm or threaten the guides or make any bigoted, hateful, or racially offensive statements.
  3. You may not advocate illegal activity or discuss illegal activities with the intent to commit them or cause injury or property damage to any person. You may not post or distribute any material that infringes and/or violates any right of a third party or any law or post or distribute any vulgar, obscene, discourteous, or indecent language or images.
  4. If we deem any online, social networking, or other media reference post, article, photo or video regarding a retreat inappropriate, the offender is required to take down the material immediately upon our request for removal. If the posting is made during a retreat, this may be grounds for dismissal from the retreat, removal and preclusion from the Sites and future involvement in Sanctum Spain.
  5. Without limitation of the foregoing, Sanctum Spain may, in its sole and absolute discretion, remove You or any other attendee from a retreat, without explanation, either before or during a retreat, if such attendee engages in any unlawful, unauthorized, prohibited, improper, or unethical activities, or any other acts or omissions that we deem worthy of Your removal from a retreat.

SSRI:

For SSRI’s, we recommend taking the lowest possible dose that your doctor recommends. If you can be off for the retreat and about 2-3 week prior this is best. However, we are not medical professionals and can’t make those requirements. Guests who have a long history of SSRI use may need more psilocybin and more time than others because this substance is trying to work on the same receptors in the brain and after years of SSRI use, the receptors become overwhelmed and need a bit of time to balance out in order to receive the psilocybin. Again, we are not medical professionals and cannot make these recommendations, however, we know through past guests that its better to be off of these medications in order to feel the full effects of the substance and therefore cannot guarantee any feeling, result, healing, or response to the psilocybin.

https://www.essence.nl/drug-interaction/Benzodiazepines:

  1. Psychedelics and benzodiazepines while not dangerous to combine, you will need to taper and discontinue chronic benzo use as it will optimize therapeutic potential of experience. Continued use will significantly lessen the effects of the psilocybin.
  2. Due to the serious potential risks of withdrawal with benzodiazepines, the risks of discontinuation in chronic users may outweigh benefits of a psychedelic experience in certain situations
  3. Intermittent and sparing use of benzodiazepines in the week after PAP sessions may be helpful in managing anxiety or insomnia, especially in persons with previous benzodiazepine exposure
