Day 01: Welcome to Marley One Wellness
Preparation Day and Welcome Dinner.
Our retreat host will welcome you and provide a tour of the venue as well as connect the group over a welcome dinner. The first evening is designed to provide relaxation after traveling and provide a sense of safety for the journey ahead.
Day 02: Psilocybin Ceremony One
We start the morning with group movement, meditation, and ceremonial preparation, followed by light meals, and personalized somatic therapies throughout the afternoon to help relax the mind and body for the evening ceremony.
Our first Psilocybin Ceremony is about diving into our fears and unknown patterns. We will discover that underneath layers of pain and fears we find our inner being who needs attention, support and care. We will create the space for you to meet this part of yourself.
Day 03: Psilocybin Ceremony Two
Starting the morning with group movement and meditation, we will connect and integrate what came through from the first ceremony. The day will be followed with a tour and lunch on the Martha Brae river to experience the tranquil beauty of Jamaica, as well as optional rest and bodywork before the 2nd ceremony.
This Psilocybin Ceremony is about tapping into our creativity potential and discovering new solutions and downloads that are applicable to our lives. Our intention is to open our hearts, receive self love, and create from a new place of awareness.
This experience will be closed with a traditional fire ceremony.
Day 04: Integration and Optional Cannabis Ceremony
The morning will start with group movement, meditation, workshops, and light breakfast, preparing us for an afternoon Rastafarian cannabis ceremony and lunch. (Partaking is optional.)
In the evening we will offer a luxurious culinary experience for our final group dinner and an indigenous sound bath meditation to close.
Day 05: Departure
Through the course of your experience, we will focus on combining the insights and messages with practical tools to understand and integrate the wisdom you received in an understandable and relatable way.
