To those who desire to shed old ways and cross over into unknown realms.


 This is your portal. 


May 9-13, 2024

Wander beyond the realms of the profane 

into the timeless, enchanting grandeur of the old growth rainforest. 

As winter thaws, the time is upon us to pass through spring’s portal into a mysterious frontier of new beginnings and fresh possibilities.

Participate in ancient, nature-based practices and sacred ceremonies facilitated by experienced and knowledgeable guides that will invite you to journey into

the transformative realms of mystery.  

The Invitation 

A communal ritual of individual transformation.

Like the seeds of the Earth, we were made for this.


This is an invitation for those who feel themselves at a threshold in their life and for those who feel the collective shift we must make as a society.


The forest invites you to remember the ways you’ve always been crossing into new worlds. 


Your old ways will not serve you here. This is not something to figure out. It is a portal to be passed through. Now is the time to listen to your heart, trust your feet and step into the future that is beckoning you. 

"What shape waits 

                       in the seed of you

to grow and spread its branches

        against a future sky?"

the invitation & our belief

This will be our third year returning to the forest, and this year we are choosing to honor the thresholds we walk through.

Surrounded by 300 acres of primordial wilderness, we will gather to remember our place in the more-than-human world. We'll explore the regenerative medicine that exists within authentic community, embodiment practices and communion with nature – within the context and loving web of sacred plant ceremonies.


We will eat nourishing, delicious food, commune with the river and forest outside our doorstep and participate in deep, powerful practices to awaken the wildness that lies within.


“at any time you can ask yourself: 

at which threshold am i now standing? 

at this time in my life, what am i leaving? 

where am i about to enter? 

what is preventing me from crossing my next threshold? 

what gift would enable me to do it? 

a threshold is not a simple boundary; it is a frontier that divides two different territories, rhythms and atmospheres.” 

– John O’Donohue

transformative potential of sacred plant ceremony

Wild Within is a sacred container, where the work is facilitated through deep communion with plant allies in the context of sacred shamanic ceremony. 


Ceremony is where we remember to remember. It is a place that nourishes the soul, that opens the mind, that heals the body. It is a space for transformation, growth and deep alchemy. This is a place for serious work and exploration of being alive on this Earth at this time – and it is our birthright

This work could be particularly potent for you if:

You find yourself at a pivotal time in your life 

You are longing to remember Truth within yourself

You are ready for a change

You want to create space to (re)connect to what truly matters

You are yearning for community to hold you in your human journey

Preparation & Integration

All week, our team of skilled facilitators will aid you in preparing for and integrating your journey with the sacred mushrooms.

You’ll be guided through a variety of carefully curated exercises, meditative practices, and facilitated discussions designed to deepen your experience and guide you to your edges.

You'll learn ancient and modern techniques to commune with nature, tap into your innate wisdom and embrace a more authentic and purpose-driven life.

Prior to your trip, you'll have a 1 on 1 preparation call with an experienced guide and we'll also be hosting a live group Zoom call before the trip to discuss working with psilocybin mushrooms and answer any questions you might have.

"Once we have tasted wildness, we begin to hunger for a food long denied us, and the more we eat of it the more we will awaken."

The Sanctuary

The retreat center is hidden away in an old-growth rain forest where Bear, Salmon and Eagle call home and the creek meets the Molalla River.

Lodging options include tucked away cabins overlooking the creek, bell tents, and custom built tiny homes. All participants will have access to the beautiful communal lodge with dining and outdoor areas, a fire pit, showers, a stunning wood deck overlooking the river, a newly built cedar bath house next to the river with cedar hot tub, cold plunge claw foot tub and sauna, a river beach, a pristine swimming hole where the creek flows into the river and the salmon breed, and of course, wild forest trails right out your front door.
