Santa Catarina Island
Olá! Bem-vinda a Açucena (Hello! Welcome to Açucena)
Our secluded location is nestled on 17 acres between Santa Catarina's southern mountainous jungle and peaceful beaches of the island. This cozy homestay provides everything you need to relax, rewind, and reset in Nature. During your stay, you are invited to call Açucena Holistic Healing Center your home.
Native Brazilian Sol graciously hosts us at her family's sanctuary where she regularly hosts and performs deeply healing integrative therapies. A large pond and walking trails are complemented by the edible landscape. Allow yourself to step away from the business of Life to become one with the local island culture in this intimate rustic setting.
The ceremony room provides ample space for group yoga, art, music, and integration activities. We will meet here daily to create, connect, heal, integrate, and expand our conscious horizons.
The open dining space will provide you with fresh locally sourced vegetarian meals and a lovely view of the property each morning. The intentionally designed meditation window offers a contemplative space to reflect over a cup of warm tea.
Each simple bedroom hosts two beds and space to store your belongings. Bathrooms are located steps from each bedroom.
The first Hope Network Health psilocybin group healing experience will be January 4-11, 2021 (mid-summer) near Florianópolis, on Santa Catarina Island, Brazil. This region's culture has long valued traditional holistic medicine practices and welcomes your healing experience with an open heart. More than 50 pristine beaches grace the island. Mango and jackfruit trees grow just steps from your bedroom. Here, nature surrounds you in a loving embrace.
During your stay, you will receive 3 psilocybin mushroom sessions. Your medicine will be freshly prepared and served with blue lotus blossoms, rose petals, ginger root, and organic cacao. Throughout the week you will have the opportunity to participate in yoga, integration circles, day trips, and more.
