About San Pedro
San Pedro (Trichocereus/Echinopsis pachanoi) is a thin, columnar cactus native to the Andes in South America that contains mescaline—one of the longest-studied psychedelics in the world—and the first to be labeled with the term “psychedelic.”
San Pedro has been an important element to the spiritual ceremonies of various indigenous cultures for thousands of years. In the context of these ceremonies, the San Pedro experience is known for being empathogenic and potentially life-changing, promoting radical introspection, healing, and a sense of wonder and awe.
Though the magico-religious and medicinal uses of San Pedro were suppressed by the Catholic conquistadors, while the name of the plant itself—San Pedro, Spanish for Saint Peter—is thought to imply that, like the Christian saint, the cactus “holds the keys to heaven.”
As an empathogen, mescaline instills a “sense of universal understanding, a connection with other people, and the ability to come together and work out problems”—even problems that are usually suppressed. Many people gain a newfound emotional fluency and ability to express their own emotions, as well as identify the struggles of others. This sense of unity tends to define the San Pedro experience—unity with oneself, with other people and the natural world, and with all of existence at large.
Mescaline has also been shown to help people solve problems, access their creativity, be more environmentally conscious, and improve learning. In its original use, the plant medicine was also used to treat a number of ailments, including snake bites, wounds, skin conditions, and general pain.
What is Ceremony?
Ceremony is about invoking the sacred into our every day lives, building a bridge to the unseen realms beyond language and rational understanding. Anything can be made into a ceremony when we focus our energy and channel our intentions consciously.
When we sit with San Pedro and honour this sacred tradition it is here that we can experience the true and eternal nature of our soul and commune with nature and all of existence from a space that is free from the restraints of our egoic mind and the multitude of false and limiting beliefs it holds. Breakthrough to your heart centre and experience profound love and compassion. The insights and knowledge found during these journeys stay with us forever and can be truly transformational helping you understand yourself and accept what is, acting with more compassion towards yourself and others.
The ceremony experience is very individual and we encourage all participants to focus on their own journey and leave others to their own process. There will be plenty of time for sharing and discussing afterwards. To aid you on you journey we offer support and various other energy alignment/ clearing techniques if you desire them and play a curated soundtrack throughout the day.
Who is it for?
Ceremony is for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of themselves, for those that have unanswered questions, for those that are feeling that something is missing in their life, for those that seek a mystical experience or a glimpse into eternity.

“During my visit in Peru I stayed with a friendly group of people. Among them was Jessika and Duncan that I connected with right away. They held a San Pedro ceremony for the rest of us and I felt like they genuinly cared for people around them. Looking forward to visit their retreat in Mallorca and have another ceremony at their place. If you want people with experience and knowledge of mind/body ceremonies these are the people to talk to.”
