Ayahuasca Retreat in Mexico

Begin Your Journey

Connection with Nature, in Comfort

You don't need to travel all the way to South America to experience the profound healing of this sacred plant medicine. This Ayahuasca retreat takes place in the Valle de Bravo (Valley of the Brave) region of central Mexico, just a couple hours from Mexico City.

Valle de Bravo is one of the safest and most pristine areas of Mexico and is a favorite for nature lovers for its abundant fresh air, clean water, endless forests, and the beautiful Lake Avandaro. Valle de Bravo is also home to the world's largest Monarch butterfly sanctuary, who end their migration here every year from December to March.

In addition to our Ayahuasca ceremony facilitator, you will spend the week with a highly experienced and diversely skilled team who are there to personally support your journey.

Aside from our evening Ayahuasca ceremonies, there will be many beautiful offerings made available to you during the week, including daily breath-work, guided movement and meditation, a traditional sweat lodge ceremony, sharing circles, and tools for integration. Most importantly, we respect your right to take time for yourself, and all our offerings are completely voluntary - including the Ayahuasca experience. If you need a night off to rest and integrate, we respect your sovereignty. We're here to listen, adjust, and help you get exactly what you need from day to day.

We host our retreats with a few different partner retreat centers in the area depending on the season and availability. All of our venues are thoroughly vetted for safety, comfort, and conductivity for sacred medicine work.  Please request a discovery call to see where your preferred retreat dates will be facilitated.

Regulus Caesar
Retreat Participant

Luke, Alexa, and Amina as well as the support staff made the entire experience magical. Everything clicked at the right time and in the rightplace. Everything was safe, clean and comfortable.

Anne Chesterman
Retreat Participant

The ayahuasca experience at Behold was far more than I even imagined. I was so supported and given numerous tools to take home for continuing and enhancing the ayahuasca message. The abundant generosity and caring was precious and very much from the heart.
