Mushroom Retreat in Mexico

Located in the mountains of Valle De Bravo, Mexico, Eleusinia Retreat enjoys fresh, spring-like weather year round. Our retreat facility is private, comfortable, and luxurious and designed to optimize your experience. Check out our Instagram for more pictures and links to guest interviews.

Unique mushroom retreat experience, appropriate for anyone looking to experience and learn about psilocybin and mushroom cultivation. The retreat includes presentations on the physiological and psychological effects of psilocybin, and a comprehensive cultivation course. Eleusinia Retreat is an educational experience designed to impart long term access to all visitors. We are the only retreat that prioritizes both the physical and psychological benefits of psilocybin.

In fact, the retreat’s founder designed Eleusinia’s program to fit the needs of individuals looking to gain the ease and confidence to dose often and independently. A chronic pain patient herself who has benefitted immensely both mentally and physically from psilocybin, she has designed a program to help you find your stride with this unique medicine.

Rigorous, Comprehensive Dosing

Eleusinia is the only psilocybin retreat with a program vigorous enough to apply not only to mental health management, but pain management as well. Our program is designed to prepare you for the repetitive and often larger doses required for addressing pain, but it can also be scaled back to fit a mental health oriented plan. Overall, we are dedicated to helping our visitors navigate the psychedelic space with confidence and ease.

Our retreat is dedicated to the use of psilocybin for both physical and mental well being in a safe, science oriented environment. Psilocybin can be a powerful enhancement tool for any individual to expand consciousness and enhance spirituality. Through its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, it may even help protect our brains and arteries from diseases related to aging. Psilocybin is also a powerful tool for anyone dealing with chronic pain or illness, both due to its potent anti-inflammatory effects and ability to stimulate neuroplasticity and more well recognized anti-depressive effects.

What Is A Mushroom Retreat?

A mushroom retreat where you can experience the psychedelic effects of psilocybin containing mushrooms in a safe, controlled environment. Psilocybin, the psychoactive ingredient in “magic mushrooms” is a classic psychedelic that works on specific serotonin receptors to produce an altered state of consciousness.

Eleusinia retreat is a unique version of a mushroom retreat because we have a focus on independence and sustainability

How Does It Work?

Psilocybin and other classic psychedelics have strong, unique anti-inflammatory properties and promote functional and structural neuroplasticity. They can promote the regrowth of neural connections lost to depression, stress, or even to a certain extent injury or disease.

The unique anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of psychedelics are unmatched in the modern pharmaceutical world and are only now being thoroughly investigated.

At this mushroom retreat, you can learn to harness these features through psychedelic assisted meditation and continue to benefit through our mushroom cultivation class.

Why THIS Mushroom Retreat?

Eleusinia strikes the delicate balance between the spiritual and the scientific aspects of a psychedelic experience. You can be confident that you are being cared for by a team with a solid medical understanding of psilocybin and enthusiasm for its unique properties including an ability to produce “mystical” experiences.

We strive to make your psychedelic experience comfortable, free of uncertainty and nausea. Everything about Eleusinia is designed for your comfort. A luxurious villa, chef prepared meals, and door to door airport pick-up service makes your stay seamless and worry free. Each room has either two queen or one king sized bed and a private bathroom. We want you to be free to focus on the experience and nothing else.

Our 5 day retreat includes two specialized psilocybin experiences, a 5 gram macrodose and a 1.5 gram minidose. We also include one DMT experience. All psilocybin experiences include optional psilocybin compatible medication to prevent nausea.

How We Incorporate DMT In A Mushroom Retreat

DMT is a very strong psychedelic that has a much shorter binding time, and a much quicker onset of action than psilocybin. A DMT experience lasts on average about 10 minutes and can be quite intense. Though Eleusinia is primarily a mushroom retreat, DMT is another tool we use to optimize our guest’s experience.

These features can make it useful for immediate help for our guests for certain issues, ranging from aborting intense headache attacks, neuralgias, and neuropathy. It can also be a good option to turn to if the response to psilocybin in our first session was not significant due to previous medication use.

Eleusinia is the perfect mushroom retreat for the individual looking to develop a deeper knowledge of psilocybin and their psyche.

A note from the founder

The Eleusinia project is the result of my own struggles with intractable chronic pain and the limitations of the medical system. When pain enters our lives, either through trauma or unexplained means, it steals everything. Everything seems to come to a grinding stop, but the truth is that nothing actually stops. The world goes on for everyone else, just not for you.

 

Was I failed by “modern medicine”? Yes. But I also believe that the medical professionals that tried to help me were failed by the same system. I believe they wanted to help, but lacked legal access to these therapies. My life and career were set to be nothing more than collateral damage to this condition, so I ended up looking for alternative options. I was lucky enough to come in contact with the right one. One day, hopefully soon, psilocybin and similar substances will be available and acceptable everywhere, but I was not willing to wait for that day, especially if it never came to pass. If I were to wait, I am not sure if there would be anything left of me worth saving. I had to handle my condition and its treatment on my own. I had to take a chance on the unknown, and it has made all the difference.

Retreats like this are available in various places around the world, but all seem to be focused on mental health or some form of spirituality. I wanted to create one focused on physical wellness too, and which offers the same training and skills that worked for me.

Regular access to psilocybin gave me my life back, and I firmly believe that anyone should have the option and opportunity to experience and decide if psilocybin is also right for them.

I can't even begin to put into words what a profound blessing this retreat was in my life. Jessica and her team have truly curated an experience that was safe, seamless and intricately thought through down to every small detail. What I experienced thanks to her team has completely shifted my perspective, and most importantly it allowed me to connect with my higher self in a way I have never experienced before. It aligned my mind, body and soul in a way that no other therapy has been able to do for me, and I am still experiencing the effects and working to integrate the experience into my (new!) life. Additionally, being someone who has dealt with chronic pain myself for years, this retreat stood out to me from others in that it gave me the tools to continue treatment on my own and granted me the knowledge of how to plan to do so safely, what dosage is right for me and what sort of environment I need to create here at home. Jessica's team is truly special - from the breathwork and meditation, bodywork, integration sessions, energy healing and everyone behind the scenes (the food was divine!), I cannot thank this team enough for creating such an incredible experience for me. Eleusinia - you have my heart! I can't wait to go back!!!

What an amazing experience from start to finish. The team at Eleusinia is amazing. I felt incredibly comfortable from the moment I started working with the team at Eleusinia. They answered every question and concern I had. The retreat experience itself was incredible - every element of the experience was well thought out and executed. I can't recommend them enough!

The food was exceptional, the staff was so friendly and professional, and the location was beautiful and it provided a perfect setting for this spiritual and healing journey. I highly recommend Eleusinia Retreat to anyone looking for an alternative to western medicine to treat chronic pain, depression and other mental health disorders.

This experience far exceeded my expectations. Jessica, Jay, and the rest of the staff are so empathetic and caring. I want to emphasize this above everything else: they went WAY above and beyond to make sure we got the most out of our experience. It would be 10pm or later and Jessica would still be suggesting ways to enhance our experience! I felt so cared for, and embraced, by the whole team. My husband did not have an entirely great first “trip” and they made it their mission to make sure he left there with a good experience and the tools to repeat it. When I looked online for reviews/photos, it seems that most of the previous reviews are for their other location in Puerto Vallarta. This location is about 2 hours outside Mexico City (they provide a shuttle), in the mountains, so it was fairly cool and would rain in the late afternoons, but the mornings/early afternoons were consistently beautiful and definitely not too hot. Bring a sweater and you're good. It was heavenly to sit by the fire in the cool evenings. The space is a large house with the main floor being open to the “backyard” which consisted of a hot tub, pool, spacious yard, palapa for yoga, and a drop dead gorgeous view of a lake and mountains. Our individual room was spacious and filled with light; we even had a private balcony. Honestly we did not spend much time in the room; this was a group experience. The meals are all plant based and healthy, but way more delicious than that sounds. Every meal was beautifully plated and included a few courses. They found a way to work in lots of mushrooms (haha) and local ingredients (for example, nopales). Your body will thank you for eating this food. Andrew does the most amazing body work. I felt a little guilty because he probably wanted to relax in the evening but there was a steady stream of “customers” and he treated each of us like kings. Now for the experience (that’s what you’re here for!). We were in a group of 10 people (some couples some singles). The experience starts on your arrival day/evening with an informational session about what to expect, then you’re on a “macro” dose on your first full day. I had an absolutely lovely experience, which was enhanced by the beautiful setting (seriously, it’s an amazing space) and the care and attention to detail they showed. They’ve thought of everything you’d need to be comfortable, and were constantly checking in with everyone to make sure their “trip” was a good one. Some of the attendees had very, very intense experiences, and the staff all did their best to help at every step. After the macro dose, you get a day off to learn about mushroom cultivation and relax. I am a bit of a DIYer when it comes to food, so I was really grateful for their presentation on how to grow the mushrooms. It was very well prepared and came with step by step video instructions. I’m excited to start growing them! I’ve presented on similar topics myself (i.e. canning, food preservation, winemaking) and I can say that they put a lot of thought into their material and presented it in a way that will set you up for success. Next comes the “mini” dose (which they distinguish from microdosing). I found this experience far less intense, but very relaxing. We did some simple yoga poses out on the palapa while the afternoon rain was moving in….it was an amazing experience that I doubt I’ll ever have in my life again. Lastly, the group. I was there with my husband, along with 8 other strangers. Not strangers for long! It was an intense shared experience and we created bonds that I have no doubt will last. It was a privilege to be part of that group, and to learn from Jessica, Jay, Andrew, Tawnya, Yamil, Josephina, and the rest of the staff. I don’t need to go back. They gave me the tools to experience this myself. But I will consider myself lucky if I am able to repeat this experience: it was really profound.

Highly recommend Eleusinia Retreat for anyone looking to have a therapeutic experience with mushrooms. The staff is amazing and very well trained to guide you through the process. The villa is in a beautiful setting and that really helps add to the experience. I just returned and all 10 participants had healing benefits and you walk away feeling empowered to continue the process on your own. We all want to come back in a year and see the changes in each others lives, we all bonded and are grateful to have had the experiences together, even though we started as strangers.

Eleusinia is truly a life changing experience. Whether you come for pain management or as part of your spiritual healing journey there is something here that will truly change your life. The experience was highly curated and every detail was taken care of from the personal pick up by Jay to the food and tone/setting of the beautiful space itself. From the moment I arrived I was put at ease by the genuinely kind and compassionate team. My fears and anxieties quickly subsided as I met and interacted with some of the most wonderful people I have ever had the privilege of meeting. Jessica, Jay, Josefina, Tawnya, and Andrew provided support and encouragement from their own lived experiences. They empower their guests and teach us all how to continue our treatment and our healing without depending on them. Although I still believe that I will be back again. The experience was so incredible. I put my faith into the hands of Eleusinia because I believe in the science and evidence-based treatment. However, what I found was so much more. I embraced the spiritual connection that was fostered and built through the genuine connections with people and nature. I feel as though I am truly able to connect with my mind, body, and soul. I have a renewed outlook on life and I can truly say that I am excited for what the future holds. I can't say enough about the people and the experience at Eleusinia! You will not regret booking this retreat. Everyone deserves to feel as loved, safe, and cared for as I did in the hands of the Eleusinia team! Thank you Eleusinia!
