Transformational Retreat with Bufo Alvarius (5-MeO-DMT)

Are you ready for a big shift?

For those feeling called to the sacred medicine of Bufo (5-MeO-DMT), Behold Retreats cultivates an environment of safety, sovergnity, integrity, and trust. This is an opportunity to do deep transformational work with this powerful entheogenic medicine under the care of a highly-experienced facilitation team.

The secretion of the Sonoran Desert Toad, (aka Bufo Alvarius toad or the Colorado River toad) contains high levels of 5-MeO-DMT, one of the most potent entheogenic medicines known to mankind, and is a powerful initiation for those looking to enter a new phase of life.

The experience with Bufo Alvarius toad venom is much shorter in duration that other visionary substances like Ayahuasca, San Pedro, and psilocybin. Once the toad secretion is inhaled, the mystical effects begin within seconds - a transcendental psychedelic experience of universal Oneness with massive therapeutic potential.

One leading study in 2019 of 5-MeO-DMT showed that, after smoking the toad venom, participants underwent a profound mystical experience, with high levels of "ego dissolution or oceanic boundlessness during their session displayed higher ratings of satisfaction with life and lower ratings of depression and stress."

We offer the opportunity for 3 private ceremonies during your retreat, though even a single ceremony can, and often does, bring about profound healing and self-realization. To help you get the most from your Bufo (5-MeO-DMT retreat, Behold's team of diversely qualified therapists and coaches can guide you through a 1-on-1, 7-week Psychedelic Integration program to help you alchemize your Bufo (5-MeO-DMT experience into life-long change. We also offer Integrative Health Coaching for those guests who want to reach their top physical shape before embarking on this journey of spiritual growth.

Feeling the call? We invite you to connect with us for a complimentary Discovery Call.
