At Evolution Retreats, we create a neutral and non-judgmental space for psilocybin ceremonies. We employ the wisdom and experience of the world’s psychedelic cultures and traditions, but the program does not promote any one philosophy in particular. To ensure our clients get stable and reliable results from our psilocybin retreats, we believe in applying the scientific method to psychedelics, basing our program on research and experience.
Our host resort Tensing Pen immerses you in Jamaica’s beauty on the coast of Negril, enhancing the therapeutic container beautifully. Surrounded by the unique island ecosystem and set on top of beautiful limestone cliffs along the Caribbean Sea, Evolution Retreats offers the perfect opportunity to disconnect from everyday life while exploring your inner life.
Our team specializes in psychedelic transformation. With decades of combined medical and underground experience working with psilocybin and psychedelics in a therapeutic setting, our professional facilitators provide a perfectly curated experience at our Jamaican psychedelic retreat. Combined with cutting-edge psychotherapeutic methods and practices, they’ve paved the safe path for your wellbeing and happiness.
“Unlike other widely used recreational drugs, certain psychedelics aren’t reliably addictive. It’s not an easy drug escape if that’s your goal.”
“The idea psychedelics liberate some of these powerfully valent, deeper emotional areas of the brain—the limbic areas involved in memory and emotion—to have their say is consistent with what people are reporting”
“I think as we’ve learned more about how the brain works, we began to realize that these are potential tools for research purposes and might be clinically beneficial”
“It’s almost as if the brain for a period of time goes offline and then recalibrates in an enhanced state”
Benefits of psychedelic therapy
“Psilocybin Therapy produced rapid and large reductions in depressive symptoms, with most participants showing improvement and half of study participants achieving remission through the four-week follow-up”
“You shake up the brain, you see things in a more positive way, and then you lay down those positive circuits with the neuroplasticity,” he added. “It’s a double whammy.”
“What we have access to are medicines that have been used, tried and tested for thousands of years”
“Beginning in the late 1990s but exploding only in the past few years, a steady thrum of studies has illuminated the potential benefits of psychedelics in helping with myriad mental-health disorders, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).”
“… a motion center is talking directly to your visual cortex, which could allow you to see things you’re feeling. It could result in hallucinations. Those new connections may […] manifest as new perspectives, new ideas, new means, new metaphors. But the point is that by temporarily disrupting the order of the brain, a new order forms. And that order may have incredible value at either the level of mental health and psychology or the level of creativity.”
“What the experience does is it presents you with the idea of mortality. It’s your own mortality, the mortality of the planet…that is the central issue of consciousness. For me, the meaning of the universe cracked open”
“Everyone thought I was crazy, I bit this guy’s ear off… I did all this stuff, and once I got introduced to the shrooms … my whole life changed. To think where I was: almost suicidal – to this now. Isn’t life a trip, man? It’s amazing medicine, and people don’t look at it from that perspective. I believe this is good for the world. (Wesana Health) was on the same level of thinking that I was. They wanted to share this with the world. This is very limited, us doing this in these small ceremonies. It needs to be open to the world.”
“The man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out. He will be wiser but less sure, happier but less self-satisfied, humbler in acknowledging his ignorance yet better equipped to understand the relationship of words to things, of systematic reasoning to the unfathomable mystery which it tries, forever vainly, to comprehend”.
“It gave me an inner joy, an open mindedness, gratefulness, open eyes and an internal sensitivity for the miracles of creation… I think that in human evolution it has never been as necessary to have this substance. It is just a tool to turn us into what we are supposed to be.”
“There are aspects to those two particular drugs [psilocybin and LSD] that the places you can go in your brain are much deeper and more healing than anything else”
“I was lost. I was lost in life. Nobody really wanted to hang out with me. I could tell I was a burden to my family. I didn’t want my kids to learn how to grow up seeing the way I was acting. I just thought it might be better for me to be gone. Now I’m living my best life. I’m doing phenomenally well”
“Taking LSD was a profound experience, one of the most important things in my life. LSD shows you that there’s another side to the coin, and you can’t remember it when it wears off, but you know it. It reinforced my sense of what was important: creating great things instead of making money, putting things back into the stream of history and of human consciousness as much as I could.”
“I found I was hiding behind all kinds of defenses, hypocrisies and vanities. I had to get rid of them layer by layer. The moment when your conscious meets your subconscious is a hell of a wrench. With me, there came a day when I saw the light.”
