TAKE A “TRIP” FOR MENTAL HEALTH, COSTA RICA

If you haven’t heard, psychedeli­cs could be the new antidepres­sants, with researcher­s finding entheogen plant-medicine could be effective in treating anxiety, depression, PTSD, and a range of addictions. Before you head for the dark web, though, it’s important to do some research of your own and join a supervised program (legally) offering ayahuasca, psilocybin, or the San Pedro cactus. Behold Retreats have recently launched entheogen plant-medicine retreats designed to set you up on a journey of self-discovery and transforma­tion. While a leaders retreat is planned for Costa Rica in the first quarter of 2021, travel restrictio­ns pending, this might be one to bookmark (and prepare for) for 2022. behold-retreats.com
