Ceremonial Preparation

An expert-led online course to help you activate the full potential of your upcoming psychedelic journey.

trusted by hundreds of journeyers every month

Welcome to your journey of transformation

While it may seem like your psychedelic ceremony begins when you ingest the medicine, it begins the moment you commit to the process. Preparation is the “ceremony before the ceremony”. 

In this sense, it is the initial stage of your psychedelic experience.   

This program is going to guide you through the sacred process of preparation to help you activate the full potential of any upcoming psychedelic journeys.

The risks of not

preparing well


Psychedelics are inherently never completely safe. Going into ceremony without preparation can potentially lead to harmful situations through a lack of navigational skills.


You might miss the chance to align your life with your highest self and cultivate a deeper connection to yourself and the world around you.


Without the support of a like-minded community and expert guidance, you may struggle to find a sense of belonging and connection to something greater than yourself.
