What are you seeking?
Are you prepared to learn to release control of your journey to your higher self?
You may not control the destination, but you control the steps on the journey. Why not choose an intention or destination that you can be proud to share with others? Something that resonates within you. Something selfless and greater than yourself. Then, go look for it. You might not find what you thought you were looking for, but you will find something of value. You may just find yourself… [Read more about our retreat philosophy.]
Cost conscious psychedelic travelers
“We have been bombarded by cost-conscious client inquiries wanting to explore nature with the help of the medicine,” explained Mike Arnold, an Oregon attorney and the founder of Silo Wellness. “They are what we consider ‘psychedelic curious.’ These are not looking to experiment with psychedelics for recreational purposes at a club or party. They are very intentional and mindful individuals looking to better understand themselves and their place in the universe. They aren’t looking for mental health therapy or a deep dive ego death. They are wanting to learn about psilocybin while learning about themselves. This is an unmet need in the psychedelic space, and Silo Wellness is well positioned to assist.
“One of Silo Wellness’s most valuable assets is its data. From what we have learned from thousands of client inquiries and consumer comments on retreats is that not everyone is looking for the ‘deep dive’ or to treat mental illnesses. Many want to self-titrate themselves on to mushrooms through serial microdosing. They want to be at a rustic seaside resort looking at shooting stars on a gram of mushrooms. They want to go for a snorkel on a 0.1 gram microdose.”
Jamaica Luxury Psychedelic Retreats vs. Psilocybin Microdosing Retreats
Silo’s “luxury” retreats have been featured in Bloomberg, Fodor’s Travel, The Evening Standard, and The Washington Post, among others. However, Silo Wellness never intended to enter the luxury retreats space. “That wasn’t my vision,” continued Arnold. “Our mission is to get psychedelic healing into the hands of those suffering as quickly and inexpensively as possible. Nonetheless, the luxury model was necessary during COVID and has been very good to us and for our clients. However, it is not available to everyone, which is a shame and against our mission.”
“The vision at our Go Natural Jamaica microdosing resort is to offer a lower price point with a seafront ‘luxury view’ but with more rustic accommodations,” Arnold continued. “We can significantly lower the cost by making air conditioning optional, for example, or provide a dorm room with bunk beds right alongside a luxury villa on the same site. I myself prefer to suffer in nature while primitive camping, rafting, or waterfall exploring with or without psychedelics. I don’t want to hear the buzz of the A/C at night. I want to hear the buzz of consciousness to the soundtrack of nature. I want to hear a tropical storm. I want to hear the whistling Jamaican tree frogs. I want to sleep under the stars while microdosing. And I want Silo’s clients to enjoy this God-given luxury that experienced psychedelic users can do on their own, but in the safety and comfort of secure accommodations under the cover our of risk mitigation protocols.”
Spiritual Ecotourism and Psychedelic Retreats in Oregon and Jamaica
Silo Wellness sees nature immersion as essential for human growth. Human consciousness is the most complicated and impressive thing to evolve out of nature – more complicated and inexplicable than a black hole. Silo sees it as incumbent on individuals to explore consciousness while exploring nature to get that reset along with a new purpose-driven download to be the best version of themselves.
In 2022, Silo’s Oregon nature-immersion psychedelic retreat was featured in Outside Magazine’s article, “The Future of Nature Therapy is Psychedelic.” Its colorful narrative begins with an emotional play-by-play account of a ketamine deep-dive trip report by a brave participant with PTSD from sexual assault and depression: “[She] sees the blue pool, shimmering like a winter oasis. It sparkles below a snowy trail and rocky gray cliffs, the iridescent turquoise water rippling under the rushing downpour of Tamolitch Falls…[Her] otherworldly trip didn’t happen in the flesh. It took place in her mind, after she’d taken ketamine…”
Beyond what Silo’s cliffside beachfront resort has to offer, participants will have optional microdosing nature excursions that can include a waterfall swim, harvesting supper at a permaculture jungle farm, a bamboo raft river float, Caribbean boat tour and island picnic, etc. Those can be chosen after arrival, so there’s no hurry in making a decision.
Set, Setting, and Dosing: Perceptible Sub-psychedelic Microdosing in Nature
“This retreat isn’t necessarily imperceptible microdoses,” stated Arnold, “although clients are welcome to experience psychedelics for the first time in this way. Silo’s self-titrating psilocybin protocols allow people to work their way up dosing in a controlled way to experience the sub-psychedelic effects.
“We want people to be able to commune with nature at sub-psychedelic but perceptible doses. We know that most of our clients are uncomfortable taking a 0.3 gram ‘social dose’ or a 0.7 to one gram ‘hiker’s dose’ or ‘museum dose’ for the first time. Instead, we will provide the framework for them to slowly walk themselves up over time to these more advanced dosages.”
Jamaica Psilocybin Microdosing Retreat Pricing
Farm-/field-/sea-/bush-to-table traditional natural Jamaican cuisine is included. Locally sourced psilocybin mushroom microdosing capsules are available on site for a nominal cash purchase. Applicants receive a one-on-one meeting with our experienced client journey planning team and an evaluation for appropriateness for retreat, contraindications, etc. by our Ph.D. pharmacologist and co-inventor of the world’s first psilocybin nasal spray. Qualified participants will also be provided with recommended reading materials, journaling prompts, videos regarding retreat location, logistics, and how to make the most of the process to help them put in the work to reset and reprogram their minds. Additional services can be found on the website, including transportation to retreat, additional add-on lodging before or after retreat, air conditioning, healthful smoothies and natural snacks, yoga, and food upgrade of menu choices (although this is discouraged as we recommend a full emersion into a new lifestyle closer to the land in an authentic local Jamaican fashion).
