Trippy Trips: Psychedelic Retreats Are On The Rise — Are You Down?

Psychedelic retreats are an excellent option for travelers looking to leave behind daily hassles for an intense inward exploration.

You may have heard that there are therapeutic benefits of hallucinogenic drugs, and in many places around the globe, the consumption of psychedelic plant medicine is becoming legal.

Companies are acting quickly to capitalize on this evolution, including Journeymen Collective, which organizes shamanic magic mushroom journeys in Vancouver, and Costa Rica’s Soltara Healing Center, which prescribes ayahuasca under the guidance of indigenous Peruvian Shipibo healers and clinical psychologists.

Jamaica has also joined the movement with its Silo Wellness, which works closely with the island’s local Rastafarian community to facilitate mind-expanding group psilocybin retreats, CN Traveller reported.

More and more, people are choosing to attend psychedelic therapy retreats to experience an innovative way of understanding themselves better, resolving old issues, managing mood problems, and/or addressing a lack of direction in their life.

Psychedelic retreat travelers have the opportunity to clear out the mental clutter from daily existence, which makes it hard to spend time self-reflecting.

According to The Ethos, generally, psychedelic retreats are set in environments that facilitate personal connections with nature as well as allow quiet space for the administering of substances. In the U.S., certain psychedelic substances are deemed legal when they fall under religious use, but for the most part, they’re generally illegal under the Controlled Substances Act.

However, other areas have legalized certain psychedelic substances.

Jamaica, the Netherlands, Costa Rica, and Mexico all offer retreats that use Psilocybin, which is a hallucinogenic alkaloid.

While Ayahuasca, a tropical vine native to the Amazon region, noted for its hallucinogenic properties, is popular at retreats in Costa Rica, Peru, and Brazil.

Would you be down for a trippy trip?
