Awakening to Life: Oct 14-18

Login Required

A couples retreat integration session.


Deposits are non-refundable except in specific situations where we determine that our Intensives are not a good fit for you (and only at the discretion of Enfold).

If you book your spot before we’ve had a Discovery Call, we’ll book a call immediately to determine if our Intensive is safe and suitable for your needs and circumstances. If we determine that our Intensive is not a good fit, we’ll refund your deposit. 

Once you’re approved, your deposit is non-refundable. 

If something happens and you can’t make the date you register for, we’ll do our best to fill your spot and switch you to another date. If we cannot fill the spot, we can not return your deposit. We typically need 4-6 weeks to fill a spot with enough time for the screening and preparation process. 

We prioritize the safety and well-being of all participants. If, at any time before the Intensive, we determine it’s not safe or suitable for you to attend, we reserve the right to cancel your reservation.

Your deposit may be refunded in certain situations. However, if the cancellation is due to:

  1. Inaccurate or incomplete information you provided
  2. Changes in circumstances beyond our control

..your eligibility for a refund may be affected.

We are happy to offer interest-free payment plans. Please email to enquire. 

Beyond payment plans, we do our best to make our retreats accessible to people regardless of their financial means. Our scholarships are offered on a case-by-case basis when we have funds available. Please email Jesse and share more about your situation and we’ll see what we can do to support you. 

Yes, we’d love to connect!

5-MeO-DMT is unique from any other psychedelics and one of the most powerful medicines in the world. It is technically legal in Canada, as an unrestricted substance.

5-MeO-DMT has incredible potential for healing and expanding consciousness. It’s also not a great fit if this is your first foray into personal development work. See the “How do I know if Enfold is the right fit?” question for more on this.

If you’re new to psychedelics, we encourage you to spend some time in our 5-MeO-DMT section to learn more. We offer a wide variety of resources, videos, and free online courses to help you determine if this medicine is right for you.

Generally speaking, our Intensives are for people who have done a good amount of personal development and discovery work before arriving. This might be self-directed learning, therapy, coaching, workshops and retreats, psychedelic work, meditation, etc.

If you’re considering 5-MeO-DMT, know that it is a very powerful experience. It’s not well suited for folks who are just beginning their self-discovery journey. That said, we work with many guests that have never done large-dose psychedelics before. Through the screening process we can help you determine if this medicine is a good fit for you. See our 5-MeO-DMT section for more details.

We will also screen out folks who have physical conditions that affect heart and lung performance, and folks on certain medications. If you’re on SSRIs, or anti-anxiety medications, that’s not necessarily a problem, however if you’re taking any MAOI’s, this medicine is not a safe choice.

We are also not set up to work with people who are dealing with serious instability in their lives. If you’re having trouble managing the basic functions of your life, we are not a good fit. That said, we work with many people dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, and many other conditions.

If you’d like to talk to someone, book a Discovery Call. There is never any pressure to book on a discovery call. We always want you to feel ready for this experience and to have all the information you need to make the right decision for you.

  • We call our offerings Intensives for a reason. The protocol we’ve designed over the past five years is comprehensive and blends many modalities together to create a deep and lasting impact in your life.
  • Steve & Austin offer world-class facilitation that people describe as deeply healing. Our guest’s stories do the best job of describing their gift for this work.
  • We offer a five-day Intensive process that includes multi-week preparation and integration programs. We feel this is mandatory for safety and effectiveness with 5-MeO-DMT. Many facilitators offer what we refer to as “drive-by five”: 2-3 hour sessions where you show up and are served medicine and then sent back out into the world alone. This is unsafe and unproductive in our opinion. We’ve heard from many people who experienced 5-MeO this way and either got very little from the experience or came away with serious dysregulation and psychological issues.
  • Our group intensives are limited to six guests at a time. We have four or five team members working at most times to ensure a high level of support and safety.
  • Included in the price of the retreat is two weeks of on-call support post-retreat. Plus access to hundreds of resources, community events and integration circles, and access to support from coaches, therapists, and our community of Enfold Angels who offer peer-support sessions.
  • The high-dose medicine ceremony is private. Many group retreats have guests consume the medicine all together so they can serve more people at once. This greatly limits your ability to feel safe and fully surrender to the medicine.
  • We only host 20 retreats per year max. We bring an exceptional level of care, energy, and attention to every person we serve.
  • We’re located in Canada, one of the safest and beautiful countries in the world.

We are located on a small island outside of Vancouver BC, Canada.

For group retreats you will be sharing a room with another person of the same gender as you. Each room has it’s own ensuite bathroom. People are often nervous about sharing a room, but this is often a meaningful part of the retreat for our guests. There is something about going through such a powerful experience and noticing how it shifts your relationship with those around you, especially “strangers”.
