Set and Setting
While some retreats are week-long rentals at hotels and resorts, The Blue Portal is a permanent facility located at the Source Farm, a beautiful tract of land that is organically farmed and powered by solar and wind. Healing starts by making connections, away from distractions of city life, with nature outward and inward, and its important to begin the healing with the right place and people around you, focused on your well begin and safety. There are no TVs. Internet is available near the office. It is encouraged to minimize the use of technology and limit or avoid online activity. The healing center overlooks the ocean and nighttime, and the star-gazing is amazing! Healing begins the moment you arrive and continues long after you leave.
Some participants have requested a family member, sibling, good friend, doctor, spiritual advisor, or personal doctor attend the duration of the stay for support. If you have a physical impairment that limits your mobility, or if you feel more comfortable having someone you know at the site, we offer a reduced rate for staying at the facility. Everything is included in the stay except the psilocybin session, the massage and reiki, and the divination reading. Attending the debriefing is at the consent of the person receiving the psilocybin session. Please click here to book a Support Atendee Stay.
Once a participants application is approved and their session is confirmed, choose this option and a Blue Portal representative will contact you to match your stay with the participants session window.
One On One Mediated Sessions and Support
Every participant receives private mediated sessions with an experienced facilitator. Our dedication is to the extreme focus of every individual throughout the healing process. Orientation day is when participants meet and begin the bonding experience with their mediator, who is available throughout the week and will also be in contact with for the follow up sessions after the week has passed.
Expertly Raised Organic Psilocybin Mushrooms and Laboratory On Site
It all begins with the quality of the mushrooms. Our mushrooms are produced on-site by Blue Mountain Mushrooms, a partnership between Source Farm and Mushroom Mountain (USA). The mushrooms are produced in batches that are clonal and predictable for dosing compared to wild specimens that range from low to high, which is extremely variable in response. In order to properly calculate dosage the mushrooms are weighed with precision scales and administered according to body weight of the participant.
What is a Mediated Psilocybin Session Like at the Blue Portal?
Debriefings and Group Discussions
Private meetings with your facilitator are scheduled and arranged during your visit to maximize the efficiency of the session. Participants are encouraged to attend group socials and have the opportunity to speak to those who have had their experience, that are willing to open up and share their transformations.
A mediated psychedelic experience is a powerful and safe tool that can be life-changing. Psilocybin is non-toxic and non-addictive, unlike some pharmaceutical treatments that are a “pill a day” or “band-aid” approach to ignoring the deep, underlying issues that cause a particular unwanted condition such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, obesity, alcoholism, nicotine addiction, and other substance abuse concerns. Our treatment locations are comfortable beds in a room with candlelight and comforting artwork and light music. Participants are recommended to wear the eye shades provided to direct their journey within and to explore your consciousness deep and far beyond your superficial levels of awareness. The eye shades provided allow for your eyes to open and close without touching the shades to give you a sense of total darkness and the ability to roam your thoughts and landscape without ever standing up, much like the experience of a virtual reality simulation, where you control the visions. Psilocybin at a dose of 5-7 grams has an onset of about 20 minutes as your sensations of touch and sight begin to amplify. About 30-45 minutes into the experience you will drop into the full spectrum of the session, the most powerful arena, which amazingly lasts about 3-4 hours. It is during this time that participants will unlock doors and discover potential solutions to their pain and suffering, or see the reality in a whole new light. Your mediator is there at all times for any or no discussion, it is totally up to you to ask for advice or comfort if the experience is overwhelming at times. The last 2 hours of the session are very rewarding, as you are snug in your new skin, and your body and mind relax into the most comforting and content sleepiness, exhaustion from the intensity and progress has made you tired, and so most may find sleep the best option.
The first session can be uncomfortable, like your first roller coaster ride, many describe the experience as a rebirth, and the memories are long lasting. Many participants feel a prolonged sense of permanence in the effects of psilocybin on their condition or intention. The mediator is your anchor and safety navigator, which allows you to go deep without the fear of anxiety or personal injury. All mediators have experience with the psychedelic landscape and will help you navigate the hallways if needed. Mediators also take notes on your behavior, verbalization, and your visions for your debriefing the following day. Sessions can also be audio recorded for your records and for research.
A full orientation of expectations and guidance is provided a month before your session. Preparing mentally and physically before a session begins weeks in advance, and your mediator will contact you with specific recommendations to make the most out of your healing session.
