This was a truly extraordinary experience; one of the most profound of my life. From the Huachuca plant medicine to the Mayan sweat ceremony it all fit to form a journey that felt like a lifetime in itself. The leadership and shamanism of Frederic was not only skilled and full of expertise, but compassionate and loving at the same time. The meals were expertly provided by Rogelio along with his engaging friendship. I would definitely come back again and enthusiastically recommend Spirit Rivers to anyone seeking a quality entheogenic retreat experience.
Commonly known as toad venom, the secretion of the Bufo Alvarius toad — also known as the Sonoran Desert toad — contains 5-MeO-DMT and 5-HO-DMT (Bufotenine), two substances known for their entheogenic properties. Both compounds are naturally-occuring entheogens that are found in several species of plants.
Yopo or Anadenanthera Peregrina, is a tree native to South America and the Caribbean. The seeds of the tree have been used in healing rituals for thousands of years. They contain DMT, 5-MeO-DMT and bufotenin, among other compounds, one of the strongest entheogen on earth.
No doubt you will have heard stories of people going to far-away destinations to experience taking psychoactive or entheogenic brews, to undergo a plant medicine ceremony assisted by a shaman or a facilitator. Amongst the most popular plants used are Huachuma or Peyote cactus, Ayahuasca or Psilocybin mushrooms gatherings
