The Retreat Journal is exploring the future of developing healing plant medicine therapies for destination retreats and spas.

In March 2021, we are starting an incubator program to partner with some of the most innovative locations worldwide to develop and host conscious plant medicine retreats, and healing psychedelic experiences for reinventing change and wellbeing. 

Join us for our first Annual Psychedelic Industry Retreat 

in September 2021 in Sedona, Arizona


Our Mission


Our mission is to support retreat properties looking to develop wellness programs using plant medicines and psychedelic therapies. We provide this support through an incubator program, consulting, developing products, our annual event, and media.


Think; plant medicine retreats - psychedelic therapies - fresh-air - nature  - guided journey's where you are a pilgrim in your own immersive story -  organic products - quiet solitude - inspiration - gratitude for the details and healing treatments.
