The Mission

This is the retreat for anyone looking for a deeper understanding of the psychedelic experience and the neuroscience behind it. Visitors leave with more than just casual knowledge; they leave with the skills and confidence to pursue the use of psilocybin on their own terms.

Eleusinia is a retreat created and designed by a psilocybin patient. We cut straight through the mystery and gatekeeping that is so common in psychedelic culture and put real, practical knowledge and skills in the hands of those who need it most. Everything about this experience is geared toward your long term success and continued engagement with psilocybin.

Testimonials from Eleusinia Participants

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!!!

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!

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.

Sarah S

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.

    I spent a significant amount of time researching potential psilocybin retreats that would create a safe space for me to explore some personal challenges I have been experiencing over the last few years. I found Eleusinia’s blend of science and spirituality to be most appealing to my rational mind and my desire to understand what’s going on inside my mind and heart.

    Jessica and her team blew me away with their professionalism, warmth, and the safety they created for myself and fellow guests to be vulnerable and delve into the experience.

    Apart from the incredible staff, three things stood out to me compared to other retreats and why I would recommend this to anyone seeking more than just a week of expanding their consciousness.

    First, the reverse-pyramid dosing, breathwork, and DMT interval. I personally appreciated the macro dose at the beginning of the retreat as it allowed me to immediately dive in and uncover things I could spend the next few days exploring. The DMT in the middle of the week provided an additional vehicle for exploring my consciousness and other forms of medicine that I may want to experience in the future. The breathwork and analytical meditation sessions were as profound (for me) as the medicinal sessions themselves.

    Second, the cultivation class and education took a practical approach to providing long-term support after the retreat is over, should one continue to use this medicine for health reasons.

    Finally, I know they’re about to move into an even more impressive location, but the hospitality, house, landscape, and temperature (this is super important for those with hydration issues) lent itself to the bubble-like, but absolutely beautiful and serene retreat experience I needed.

    An honorable mention goes to the VR experience. I was skeptical, as I believe this medicine should be used to bring us closer to nature, but I found it to be very relaxing and a great way for my post-dosing plastic brain to experience a sense of play and wonder.

    A million stars for this experience! It was so well-curated, and I couldn’t recommend it enough for anyone feeling stuck, in pain, or needing a reset. While I’m not a completely changed person, I did find the version of myself I have been seeking for a long time.

    I most highly recommend Eleusinia for the best experience. From the beautiful villa and the five star food to the most caring and educated staff that helped to guide me on a path to a better life filled with less pain. I will go back again now that I’m more experienced so I can catch all the stuff I missed. Life is too short not to treat your SELF. 💕

    We left Eleusinia on July 6th 2023 with peace. Title: A Transformative Journey: Eleusinia Retreat Review

    Rating: ★★★★★

    I recently had the privilege of attending the Eleusinia Retreat, and I must say it was an absolutely transformative experience. From the moment I arrived, I was enveloped in an atmosphere of tranquility and profound introspection. Here’s my detailed review of this remarkable retreat:

    First and foremost, the location of Eleusinia Retreat was breathtaking. Nestled amidst lush green mountains of Valle de Bravo in the Estado de México. The setting exuded serenity and a sense of connection with nature.
    The retreat’s program was thoughtfully crafted, offering a well-rounded experience. The schedule was perfectly balanced, combining meditation sessions, breath work and various activities focused on personal growth and self-discovery. Each activity was led by highly knowledgeable and compassionate instructors who guided us through our inner journeys with utmost care.
    The highlight of Eleusinia Retreat was undoubtedly the medicine ceremonies. The facilitators were experienced and understanding, ensuring a safe and supportive environment. The ceremonies were conducted with deep reverence and respect for the sacredness of the fungus , allowing participants to explore their inner realms and gain profound insights. The transformative power of these plants cannot be overstated.
    The accommodations at Eleusinia Retreat were comfortable and spacious. The rooms were designed to promote relaxation and introspection, providing a sanctuary for reflection and deep rest. The staff was attentive and friendly, always ready to assist with any needs or concerns.

    One aspect that truly stood out during my time at Eleusinia Retreat was the sense of community between us the participants, everyone searching for deeper connection with oneself but all related in love and compassion .The retreat attracted individuals from diverse backgrounds, all seeking personal growth and spiritual exploration. I felt very welcome aThe connections I made with fellow participants were deeply meaningful and formed a supportive network that extended beyond the retreat itself.

    Lastly, the quality of the food served at Eleusinia Retreat was exceptional. The meals were not only delicious but also thoughtfully prepared, incorporating local and organic ingredients. The nourishing and wholesome meals perfectly complemented the transformative journey we were on.

    In conclusion, Eleusinia Retreat offers an extraordinary opportunity for personal growth, self-reflection, and spiritual exploration.
    I left feeling a enlightened, and equipped with newfound tools to navigate life’s journey. I wholeheartedly recommend Eleusinia Retreat to anyone seeking inner transformation and a deeper connection with themselves and the world around them.

    The property is beautiful and very peaceful, that mountain view is everything! It’s a contained space but it is just the amount for everyone to be able to find a private space without being isolated. The level of care of course was exceptional and the food was outstanding. I honestly cannot imagine a better experience.

    I didn’t want to go home…and am ready to go back right now.. When I went to Eleusinia in April 2023 I thought the retreat was about the medicine. Yes, the medicine was potent and effective but this retreat is so much more than that. It’s the people. They are amazing. I have never felt so supported and valued in my life. I was so impressed by the constant care and attention for all of us. I appreciated the choices that created the perfect retreat where we can learn self care. The location and climate are wonderful. The food was amazing. The schedule was packed with learning about breathing, meditation, cultivation, integration, and of course the doses themselves. I was so impressed with the genuine care and attention afforded to every guest especially when some were having challenging experiences. Group size is small so there is always someone checking in on you to see how to support you. The sense of safety and care caused us all to open up which is key for integration. Every day was a “yes day” at Eleusinia. Once home, there is an online forum app and biweekly integration sessions to help us stay in touch with our new friends and maintain the practices we learned at retreat. I’m so glad I went. Thank you to the entire team. You are amazing.

    I had such an incredible experience at Eleusinia.
    I had already high expectations and excitement when I booked cause the program seemed completely in line with what I was looking for. Yet every day I’ve spent there was rewarding me highly above what I already expected.
    Every person that works there is truly amazing and will make you feel taken care of in every possible way, from emotional support to scientific discussions to spiritual guidance and breath work and meditation, and really delicious food. Jessica did a great job in finding the best person to fit each role and has build a fantastic and diverse team that will enrich and inspire you from different perspectives.
    The space is truly beautiful, immersed in nature and carefully curated in every detail.

    The whole program is meticulously thought and designed to give you a truly meaningful and life changing experience, and also empower you to keep the treatment going at home.
    Also it’s perfectly balanced between a scientific and medical approach (the team will teach you a lot about neuroscience and the effects of psychedelics on brain and body), yet honoring the indigenous roots of this therapy and the spiritual experience as importantly.
    Michael Pollan would 100% approve 🙂

    I felt safe and taken care of, which was fundamental to let myself go and experience ego dissolution during my macro dose, and then everything I’ve learned and the work I’ve done at the retreat was essential to bring me to a truly meaningful catharsis which is already showing a really positive impact in how I approach difficulties in life.

    On top of that, from the very first day the team created a very safe space and sharing their own experiences, they encouraged the guests to be open and vulnerable. This nurtured a very special interconnection between everyone in the retreat, I felt I could be my truest self and I shared a deep bond with people I’ve met only for 5 days. There is so much power in vulnerability and this experience showed me how.

    I know I will sound cheesy but I can’t find another word to describe it, I experienced so much love and humanity cause every person in the team is there out of love and dedication to help other people, sharing these powerful “tools” because they had such a profound and positive impact in their own life. You can truly feel this in every moment and every detail.

    Every day I think of this retreat I feel my heart fill with warmth and joy and I’m so happy I started this life changing journey in this very special place.

    I went to Eleusinia pretty desperately looking for help and I found it. The setting is lovely but the people and process are truly incredible. Jessica has figured out a very impressive schedule that fits everyone.

    We were not busy but we were occupied, we could mix but felt no pressure. Respect was abundantly clear from our arrival and created an atmosphere of trust with the staff as well as among the guests. The food was amazing and I say this as a non-vegetarian – if someone would served me food like that every day I would hardly notice the change!

    The psychedelic experience wasn’t like that of my hippie days, it was intentional and honored. We were well prepared and the support during and integration after had deep meaning for me.

    If you are looking for a safe, deeply respectful place to explore what psychedelics can do for your pain, depression, and life experience, I doubt there is a better place. I hope to go back.

    There’s not enough space here to share all of the wonderful aspects of the Eleusinia Retreat. As someone who has researched retreat options for over 3 years, there is no better way or place to fully explore the power of plant medicine. The professionals, the site, the food, the comfort and the attention to every detail imaginable. Guests came for a variety of reasons and all had varying experiences but the one common factor was the positive experience we all had. Everyone left glowing. Mind blowing, life altering. It was magical. Thank you.

I felt 100% safe the entire time I was there. Not only was this a good therapeutic experience, but it was also fun getting to know the other participants as well as the staff. The location is gorgeous, from the surrounding mountains and plant life, to the beautiful architecture of the actual building. Also, the food was SO good and unique. This experience was 10 out of 10 for me and I’d even love to come back sometime in the future.
