General FAQ

Everything you need to know about our psychedelic wellness retreats.

What airport do you use?

We offer pick-up and return transportation to and from the Sangster International Airport (MBJ)

Are there any Covid-19 specific requirements to get into Jamaica, or getting back into the USA Mainland?

A negative COVID-19 PCR or Antigen test result to check in for a flight and a travel authorization from the Government of Jamaica. The guidelines are constantly changing so, it is each participant’s responsibility to stay abreast of the rules per geographic location. This link provides more information on testing and how to apply for travel authorization: https://www.visitjamaica.com/travelauthorization/
You are also required to do a COVID-19 test 3 days before your return to the US

What happens to my payment if the retreat is canceled? Is it completely refundable?

In the event you are unable to travel due to Covid-related restrictions in your country, the USA or in Jamaica, or if a Silo Wellness retreat cannot be held on its prescribed dates; you will have the option to roll over 100% of the amount to a rescheduled retreat. In the unlikely event that there isn’t an agreeable date within twelve (12) months of your original retreat date, Silo Wellness will issue a 100% refund. Deposits are non-refundable. Please note, once your application has been reviewed, if you are not approved for a retreat, your deposit will be returned. Cancellation charges will be applied according to when Silo Wellness receives written notification (via email). The charge is a percentage of the total retreat price, including surcharges, as shown below:
a) 60+ days before Retreat Day 1 – you may transfer your payment/credit to another retreat or you may request a full refund
b) 30-59 days before Retreat Day 1 – you may transfer your payment/credit to another retreat
c) 15-29 days before Retreat Day 1 – retention of 80% of your payment/credit
d) Less than 14 days before Retreat Day 1– retention of 100% of your payment/credit

What is the cost/duration?

Each session and location have a specific timeline and pricing structure. Refer to silowellness.com/retreats to view current options in both Jamaica and Oregon. Currently, our retreat price is set at $4595 for single occupancy and $3750 for double occupancy (regardless of location and event) which may be paid in one installment or as a 50% deposit with the remaining balance due 30 days prior to the event start date.

Individual experience or group?

There will be one-on-one sessions with the retreat leaders as well as socially-distanced group and integration sessions.

Is there someone professional to oversee the dosing?

Yes, experienced retreat leaders, facilitators, and medical professionals.

Is there a recommended airport to fly into?

Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay Jamaica (MBJ) for the Jamaican retreats.

What if the event is cancelled, how do I receive a refund?

Funds will be credited to the card on file

How much psilocybin/ketamine will I be taking (micro vs trip), where does the medicine come from, and how is it administered?

The dose administered is based on the information gathered on the registration form, the individual conversation you have with the retreat leader, and your response to previous on-site dosing as it relates to your goals.

Will I get to use/buy an inhaler?

Currently the inhaler is not available. With the passing of ballot measure 109, Silo intends to offer psilocybin retreats in Oregon as well as pursue a clinical psilocybin-assisted counseling element with patients using the psilocybin nasal spray prior to sessions through either licensees or through Silo’s own branded psilocybin service centers. Note: ballot measure 110 includes a two-year period to develop industry standards, practices, and guidelines.

How many people will be attending each event, is there a set group size?

All retreats have a maximum of 15 participants.

Is there an ongoing treatment option or some type of follow up post-retreat?

Our retreat facilitators will provide post-retreat follow up with each guest

How do I know which one (ketamine or psilocybin) is right for me?

Once you have submitted your registration form one of our Intake Specialists will contact you for a pre-acceptance review of the information you provided. This allows for improved session pairing, reduced chance of medication conflicts, consideration of a need for associated therapies, and builds the confidence of those attending. Participants will gain the understanding that they come first, not the psychedelic.

What happens if I have a bad trip?

The phrase “bad trip” is often used to describe an experience that challenges us. When we are given the opportunity to walk through a rigorous part of our journey, we may be reminded that these are the barriers that brought us to Silo Wellness. We each own our own journey, which allows us to redefine how we look at the fears we bring into it. Changing the idea of having “a bad trip” to “leaning into what presents itself” allows the individual to take control of their “set & setting”. Additionally, our retreat leaders and on-site staff offer an experience focused on prevention vs responding to. Although individual experiences differ, the experience we establish is focused on inclusion and reassurance.

Do you offer single day or weekend retreats?

Our current process includes 2 separate dosing sessions with reflection time between to allow participants a relaxed, natural processing of their experiences. Variations may be considered in the future.
