About the event

Join the Lucinor community for half day trip, with psilocybin & blue lotus, into the forests of Vancouver and learn how to forage local biomes for mushrooms with the expert forager Katerina. Enjoy a microdose or macrodose of a Lucinor psilocybin blend of your choice and blue lotus tea while taking in the beauty of nature amongst the flow of fresh water and stands of giant trees. Let the city melt  away and leave the stress of your urban life in your footsteps as you learn to identify and forage mushrooms both edible and magical. 

Transportation to and from central Vancouver is included. Vegan meal and tea provided along with organic chocolate,  anti-oxidant blue pea flower tea, and locally sourced spring water.

Benefits of Forest Bathing, Psilocybin, Blue Lotus & Foraging:

Forest  bathing, or "Shinrin-Yoku"—an art from Japan—is a serene conduit to  nature's harmony that offers multifaceted benefits for body and mind.   Physiologically, it reduces blood pressure, strengthens the immune   system, and decreases heart rate, enhancing our defense against diseases  by boosting natural killer cell activity due to the phytoncides trees  release. From a mental health perspective, the quiet woodland fosters  mindfulness, mitigating urban stress, anxiety, and depression, while  catalyzing creativity and focus. In summary, forest bathing isn't merely  a stroll in the woods; it's a retreat into nature that rejuvenates  body, mind, and spirit, offering solace from the rigors of urban life.

Psilocybin "magic" mushrooms alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD,  owing to their ability to 'reset' neural circuits and foster neural connectivity. Psilocybin also encourages creative thinking and open-mindedness, breaking habitual thought patterns and facilitating introspective personal growth. Additionally, magic mushooms combat addiction, prompting a psychological shift and a fresh outlook towards addictive habits. Delve into the captivating allure of Blue Lotus. Rooted in ancient traditions, its revered essence weaves a tapestry of profound  relaxation, helping you melt away life's stresses. Elevate your nocturnal journeys with its vivid, dream-enhancing properties.  Experience gentle waves of joy and heightened awareness, a gift from  nature's gentle touch. Rekindle passion with the subtle aphrodisiac properties of Blue Lotus, and connect deeply with your inner self,  tracing the paths of ancient rituals. Embrace the elegance and potency of Blue Lotus, guiding you through a journey of well-being and wonder. Partaking in psilocybin or blue lotus during the event is also optional.

Psychedelic journeys can lead to profound  insights, allowing you to delve into your innermost thoughts and  emotions with a sense of clarity and self-awareness. This heightened state of consciousness enables you to appreciate the intricate web of life that surrounds you, fostering a newfound appreciation and reverence for nature's healing power.

Through this unique synergy of forest bathing and psychedelic exploration, you'll cultivate a deeper  sense of embodiment—a visceral connection with your body and the natural  world. It's a powerful reminder that we are not separate from nature  but an integral part of it, intricately woven into the tapestry of life.

In this transformative event, we extend our journey beyond the psychedelic experience and forest bathing, as we immerse ourselves in the ancient art of mushroom foraging. Guided by seasoned expert, Katerina Klimes, you will learn to respectfully and sustainably forage for wild mushrooms, forging a deeper connection with the land we inhabit.

Foraging is more than just a means to find nourishment; it is a profound way to connect  with nature on a fundamental level. As we walk the forest floor, guided  by the wisdom of our experienced forager, we develop a newfound respect  and understanding of the delicate balance of the ecosystem. Learning to identify and harvest mushrooms in harmony with nature fosters a sense of stewardship and appreciation for the land that sustains us.

Limited spots are  available, so secure your ticket now and expand your conscious through  nature and the power of unlocking your higher self through plant  medicine.
