 Wellness is the Purpose

This transformative experience offers a unique opportunity for self-discovery, healing, and personal growth, hosted at Pala Medicine in Pasadena. Our skilled team of facilitators has meticulously crafted a comprehensive program to ensure a safe and supportive environment for your ketamine healing journeys. Each group is limited to just 8 people.

  • Experience the power of psychedelic healing with ketamine from skilled practitioners in a medically-supervised setting.
  • Address personal burnout, feeling overwhelmed or stuck, and addressing depression, anxiety, and trauma.
  • Reboot with a nervous system reset in a relational space – reconnect with yourself while healing in community.
  • Learn to take maximum advantage of neuroplasticity in the “window of opportunity” after each psychedelic journey.
  • Safe and effective psychedelic journeys are conducted in a small group.


Carefully Curated Program

3 Ketamine Journey Sessions (on Saturdays)

Most ketamine group programs work only with sublingual ketamine, which is generally less psychedelic than an intramuscular (IM) administration. Our retreat is physician-supervised, allowing you to go deep into the psychedelic space for maximum impact.

  • 1st Session, Saturday, November 18th – sublingual psychedelic dose to get started
  • 2nd Session, Saturday, December 2nd – intramuscular dose, going deeper
  • 3rd Session, Saturday, December 9th – intramuscular dose, higher dose for a profound journey experience
  • The third journey is tailored to your unique experience and physiology (with an option to return to sublingual and/or modify dose as needed)
  • Each day is 10 am to 3 pm. Be flexible as we may go overtime to 4 pm. You will need to have a ride home for safety.


Additional Preparation and Support
  • Initial Group Meeting, Friday, November 17th – we’ll get to know one another, prepare for our first journey, and cover intention-setting
  • 3 Integration Calls during the week following each journey (over Zoom)
  • Medical pre-screening session included

 What’s Included?

Learn tools and practices to help you capture and maintain maximum benefits during the ‘window of opportunity’ when your neuroplasticity remains high (over the 36-72 hours following each journey).

Several effective and beautiful healing approaches are shared to complement your journey experiences.

  • Live Sound Bath and Mindfulness Meditation
  • Deep Sharing Circle before and after each ketamine journey
  • Somatic Experiencing practices to deepen connection with yourself
  • Drumming, Movement, and Sounds promoting somatic release and movement syncing
  • Engaging discussions on psychedelics, ketamine, and mental health (with Q&A)
  • Short nervous system safety exercises

  • Light snacks provided
Connect with like-minded individuals on a shared path of healing. This retreat is designed for those seeking profound healing, personal growth, and a rejuvenated spirit. Secure your spot for 3 group ketamine journeys and a wealth of tools and techniques to support you healing journey.
