After you've been on a 5-MeO-DMT retreat, you remember the experience for the rest of your life. The only thing that could make the retreat more memorable is to experience it with a group of women sharing a common path.At Tandava Retreats, we offer a 7-day women's retreat involving 5-MeO-DMT. Our women's retreats are entirely led and directed by women. If you're interested in learning more, then we'll explore what makes 5-MeO-DMT so powerful and give you some insight into what to expect from a retreat.
Thousands of years ago, indigenous cultures began consuming 5-MeO-DMT in the form of crushed seeds. They must have continued to use it in their ceremonies for a reason. After all, 5-MeO-DMT is known as the god molecule. Many describe feeling oneness with God when under the influence of these psychoactive drugs.Fast-forward to 1936 when two Japanese scientists isolated the 5-MeO-DMT compound for the first time after a series of clinical trials. This gave birth to the use of synthetic 5-MeO-DMT in various experimental settings.
Within the last few decades, 5-MeO-DMT was also discovered in the venom of the Colorado River toad, also known as the Sonoran desert toad. It doesn't matter precisely where you source your 5-MeO-DMT from. The experience is the same either way. However, many would take issue with exploiting the toads for their medicine. Hence, many practitioners refrain from using it.Nowadays, there are several retreats available where they can indulge in a psychedelic experience safely. While some governments have turned 5-MeO-DMT into a controlled substance, the substance is hardly comparable to other controlled drugs. Indeed, anecdotal reports collected in a 2019 study suggest that a 5-MeO-DMT experience greatly augments one's life satisfaction for years afterward. Others use it for treating mental illness. Examples include depression and anxiety. However, we don't necessarily endorse its use for those means.
5-MeO-DMT retreats are far more complex than you might imagine. Some retreat centers don't give the medicine its due. To make the most of your psychedelic experience, you should tread carefully. Choose a retreat center that properly vets you and discusses the experience with you ahead of time. Furthermore, they should include a bit of aftercare to help you fully integrate the experience.
Usually, a 5-MeO-DMT retreat will involve a couple of preparatory calls to start the process. At Tandava, we usually begin with a quick consultation call to confirm that you're ready for the 5-MeO-DMT experience. In very select circumstances, 5-MeO-DMT is not appropriate for the client and we might recommend an alternative while refunding their deposit.In most cases, we find that the client is ready for the '5'. We then work hard to build a one-of-a-kind container for your experience that separates it from the rest of your daily life. In general, we like to work with people who are open to new experiences.
Your 5-MeO-DMT experience will be yours and yours alone. Past retreat goers have used all manner of words to describe it, "ego death" and "non-duality" being the common ones. We prefer to let you decide for yourself what the experience is like.Throughout each 5-MeO-DMT session, you will be accompanied by at least one spiritual guide. Hopefully, you choose a guide that is experienced so that you endure the experience safely. That way, you can emerge from it more knowledgeable than ever.
Your integration begins the moment the session ends. Needless to say, 5-MeO-DMT is quite exhilarating. And it will take you some time afterward to fully understand what you just went through. Luckily, most retreat centers worth their salt will take time during the retreat and after the retreat to help you make sense of everything you felt.This is a stark contrast to the retreat centers that let you walk off the property an hour or so after the experience is over.
At Tandava Retreats, we offer a 7-day women's retreat that includes 2 5-MeO-DMT sessions, along with a wide range of activities. During the retreat, you will spend 7 days and 6 nights at the center. Every day, you'll receive three scrumptious meals crafted by our expert chef. Our top priorities are safety as we cater to your every need. You never need to hesitate to voice your concerns, our retreats are a place for you to take up space.Before the retreat, you'll have 1 private zoom call with one of our members and 1 group call with the women who will accompany you. Each group retreat can include up to 10 women.
Our women's retreats are open to all female-identified persons. This is a safe space for women to support each other and grow together. We also prioritize your physical safety as we designed each session to minimize risk. Moreover, we use the drugs in the way that they are meant to be used.Having all chosen to share this experience, this is the perfect place for you to meet like-minded individuals. You're all in this to realize the full extent of your feminine power. Indeed, many retreat-goers remain in communication for years afterward.
Each 5-MeO-DMT session lasts about 10 to 45 minutes. From beginning to end, two of our practitioners will assist you. They'll help keep you safe during the session and integrate you immediately afterward. Typically, the first session takes place on the second day of the retreat.At our retreats, we use synthetic 5-MeO-DMT. This is because synthetic 5-MeO-DMT provides more accurate dosages. Not to mention, it helps us avoid harming any poor toads.
The Temezcal ceremony is a unique experience. Traditional to Mexico and other countries in the region, it takes place inside a sweat lodge. Needless to say, the ceremony gets very hot. Everybody sits in a circle for a few hours, typically there are chants and singing. Every Temezcal ceremony is unique, but they are often said to have healing properties and are a kind of spiritual experience in their own right.
Our retreat includes feminine embodiment workshops to help you follow the path of the feminine. Each workshop will provide the opportunity for reflection and action. Some of your strongest personal growth can come from applying the lessons you learn here.[caption id="attachment_1619" align="alignnone" width="640"]

Bathing doesn't just cleanse the body, it also cleanses the spirit. We practice a form of aromatherapy with our plant medicine steam baths. Moreover, our retreats also include a sound healing bath which is often used to combat mental health issues.
Located in the mountains of central Mexico, our retreat center is the perfect place for growth and reflection. From the moment you arrive at our facilities, you'll be dazzled by your surroundings. Each room is designed with comfort in mind and so are the common areas like the pool.
We usually start our mornings with some light yoga and breathwork. This helps set a calm pace for the rest of the day. Aside from that, our retreat center is designed with many nooks and crannies that are well-suited to meditation and general personal reflection.
Each 7-day retreat comes with a delightful adventure to a nearby town market. You can explore the historic surroundings too. Plus, since our retreat center is nestled in the mountains, you'll have every opportunity to go hiking and indulge in the lush surroundings.
Our retreat leaders, Victoria Wueschner and Colette Condorcita have years of experience with 5-MeO-DMT. Now, they've decided to team up to share their breadth and depth of experience with you during the 7-day retreat. You can learn more about their unique journeys here. They both embody our commitment to helping others while still maintaining the unique approach they developed during their training.
If you're looking for a 5-MeO-DMT retreat in Mexico, you can't cut corners on any aspect. Some retreat centers offer you a cheaper experience, but that can come at the cost of proper preparation and integration. You can't walk into the retreat without being prepared for the experience, and you can't walk out without understanding it and separating it from your daily life.At Tandava Retreats, we go the extra mile to ensure that we deliver the perfect 5-MeO-DMT experience.
