So how does Psilocybin work?

At Zion Life, we use only high-dose pure Jamaican Psilocybin Mushrooms aka Magic Mushrooms aka “The Flesh of God” as called by the Aztecs. Mushrooms are picked just before each retreat to assure the highest quality and potency to maximize your experience. Psilocybin works by shaking someone out of their behavioral and mental embedded routines to give you a glimpse of the bigger picture. Psilocybin also enhances neuroplasticity which allows you to step outside your usual fixed and routine mental state.

Our Approach

In our experiences as medical professionals, guides, and journeyers it is the psilocybin fungi (Magic Mushrooms) that are the true teachers and healers. We are just vessels being used to guide you on your journey to the light. It is an honor to create and provide a confidential, safe, comfortable space for you to experience the healing powers of psilocybin mushrooms. These substances contain nature’s healing intelligence to open your consciousness up to the same force lying within your own physical and emotional body. We begin with a heroic dose of 4g then we increase each session based on what each individual can tolerate. Your body and mind know how to heal themselves; psilocybin allows us to trust ourselves again. Just like scratches and wounds, we will mend ourselves automatically and effortlessly when given time, space, and fresh air. Your psyche can restore itself to a happy state if given the opportunity. The only requirement is your willingness to surrender your ideas and let nature do what she does best. Healing is not something we do, it is something we allow.
