Experiences From Our Guests

I loved the people, the bonding, the shared memories, the trust, the love, and the whole experience. It's been incredible. Migueleon, Sara & Aleia are shining angels and are the most incredible people who makean incredible team. They made this experience what it is and you guys should be honored to have them working for you.

Psilocybin Retreat in Costa Rica

The connection was amazing there with the group and facilitators. It was a safe place and I think that helped with the overall experience as well. If someone is ready to do the work and want a change in their life, I can see how this medicine can help.

Ayahuasca Retreat in Costa Rica

Great experience! This was my second time doing a Behold retreat and it definitely delivered again :) The sweat lodge was magical, the facilitators were very knowledgeable and experienced, the location was beautiful and I really enjoyed the house we stayed at! Then of course the medicine did its job and was very powerful! Having the alternative food options was nice as well at most of the meals. I'm not a huge mushroom fan so it was helpful when the cooks did that as well.
Overall it's all part of the experience and I'm grateful for it!

Bufo/DMT Retreat in Mexico

I loved the sacred and safe space that was held, which enabled me to surrender fully. If you are looking for a profound experience then the setting and the group size are key. The setting at Resonance Costa Rica is ideal with access to the beauty of Nature and luxury. The small group size I experienced (9 participants) enabled me to connect with each one of them and not be overwhelmed by everybody's energy during ceremonies.

Ayahuasca Retreat in Costa Rica

I cant believe that the healer and the facilitators (Heather, Sara, and Migueleon) are real or human being ! They must be sent from heaven. I [previously] had rough journeys and aggressive trips with Aya, the support that I received from the team was unbelievable, I have never been supported in that in my whole life. I am beyond honored blessed to have met them. Second thing I liked is the food quality was brilliant amazing! My room was excellent and my view was very needed to rest and heal. Hot water showers was heaven. Music from Megel, Sara, and Heather - their classes were on point. They left their rooms open incase anyone needed them during the night. The retreat staff smiling to us and very friendly. Believe me word are not enough.


Retreat Participant
Psilocybin Retreat in Portugal

An experience that will never be forgotten. I found a level of peace & love in my heart that I never knew existed. I met total strangers that became family in a matter of days. What I thought was once a burden I would live with forever was relinquished and replaced with a happiness I will forever cherish and share with the world. Thank you Luke, Alexa, Elizabeth and Mark for creating this space.
