Zeerak Khan & Barry Rossinoff

A Penetrating Psycho-Spiritual Retreat Bringing Together the Potency of Meditation, Plant Medicine, and Focused Inquiry

November 17th-22nd, Tepoztlán, Morelos, Mexico

We’re delighted to invite you to this Extraordinary, Transformative adventure.

You will be among the individuals participating in this First Epic Psycho-Spiritual retreat of its kind, held in the magical valley of Tepoztlán, Mexico, November 17th-22nd.

What this retreat is…

  • This deep dive retreat is an immersion into Presence, Openness, Unconditional Love and Radical Acceptance.
  • It is an initial group exploration into the nature of mind as enhanced by Iboga, the sacred power plant medicine considered the most grounding of psychoactive plants.
  • Through Iboga Plant Medicine ceremonies, Meditation, Self-inquiry, Emotional Body Awareness, Conscious Breathwork, Qigong, and Yoga you will be encouraged to leave no stones unturned. To bring in to the light all that stands in the way of awakening to your One True, Boundless Nature as Love. To Experience the joy of being fully Alive, Open Hearted and Awake human being.

Imagine combining the potent benefits of plant medicine AND spiritual practice. If the intersection of these two excites you and you’re ready for real transformation then this retreat is for you!

Too often, painful repercussions from trauma, addictive behaviors, self-deficient stories and other life experiences sabotage our inner lives. And even after years of consistent meditation, yogic practices, or traditional therapy, true peace and harmony can still be elusive.

While spiritual retreats alone provide unique opportunities to stabilize or intensify one’s inner journey and set the stage for breakthroughs, more may be needed.

If you find yourself at such an impasse or feel the evolutionary impulse to deepen your spiritual quest, you’ve come to the right place!

More and more people from all demographics are discovering plant medicines as a source of insights, awakening and inspiration.

Over the past few decades, a powerful teacher plant medicine known as Iboga has found its way into the psycho-spiritual arena with promising results.

Derived from a root found mainly in African rainforests and used ceremonially for centuries by the Bwiti people of Gabon, Africa, this powerful entheogen has been applied as a profound catalyst for inner change.

While it has proven particularly effective in the realm of addictions, Iboga’s value clearly extends into the area of promoting deeper insights into any destructive or self-defeating patterns that may be affecting our lives. Some may experience freedom from past attachments and limiting beliefs clearing the way to knowing their True, Authentic nature.

With this in mind, we are inviting you to share a week-long, life-changing journey with us.

Take this opportunity to dive into spiritual self-inquiry, silent meditation, and deep conscious breathing. You will also be guided into the process of awakening and the journey from the thinking mind into the center of your heart, enhanced by this powerful plant medicine.

Experience these paradigm shifting, life changing benefits:

  • Present moment awareness
  • Abiding as Presence
  • True Joy and Fulfillment
  • Caring, compassionate and Loving relationships
  • Deeper intimacy with yourself, life and others
  • Going beyond egoic mind
  • Awakening to your true nature as Peace, Love, and Wholeness
  • Living from an Open Heart
  • Total Acceptance and Relaxation into What Is
  • Freedom from Limiting beliefs and self-sabotage
  • Harnessing emotions as a resource to heal and transform past trauma
  • Tensionless Mind, Heart and Body
  • Breakthroughs in generosity, discipline, and insight
  • Becoming more Authentic, fearless and an awake, embodied human being
  • Gaining a greater appreciation of what drives your spiritual practice and your life
