Private & Couples Ceremonies


There is a growing amount of research being conducted on the healing benefits of medicinal mushrooms in treating a number of conditions and imbalances. Medicinal mushrooms can be effective in providing healing for depression, anxiety, PTSD, mental illness, addiction, quitting smoking, chronic headaches, migraine conditions, trauma, obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders, insomnia, fear, emotional blockages, psychological and emotional distress, and much more. Work with healing mushrooms can increase our sense of openness and connection, help us to expand our consciousness, and increase our creativity and imagination. They can also help us to dissolve the barriers of our ego, deepen our spiritual connection, and to gain insight on how to transform and heal the deepest patterns in our lives.


Some studies have found that medicinal mushrooms can have the ability to regenerate our cells, create new neuro pathways in the brain, and stimulate the growth of new brain cells. In this way they can help the brain to overcome fear and promote the growth of neurons leading to the regeneration of brain cells. We have only just begun to truly understand the vast array of healing benefits that medicinal mushrooms have to offer, and their role in healing and curing numerous health conditions.  


A private ceremony can be completely customized to meet your own personal needs and healing intentions. A range of introductory to more advanced ceremonies are available, depending on your level of experience and your intentions. Private ceremonies are very suitable for beginners and also for people who want to work very deeply on their personal healing and creative visions for their life. They offer an excellent opportunity to be guided with extra attention, care and personal coaching throughout your healing journey. Private ceremonies are supported by a combination of live music and chanting, as well as a selected playlist of sacred, healing songs. 

Your private healing ceremony will include the following: 

  • A customized ceremony of 5-6 hours with personalized attention from a healing guide

  • A 20-minute follow-up integration call

  • Medicine

  • Personal coaching and support before, during and after the ceremony

  • Support during the ceremony may include guided visualizations and healing work as needed

  • A nurturing, safe, comfortable, and sacred space will be created for your healing experience

Join us for an evening of song, and receiving the sacred medicines of hape and sananga. Hape is a very sacred tobacco/herbal snuff made by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon. Hape is applied using an applicator to blow the snuff up the nostrils in prayer and meditation. It is used for purification, grounding and connecting with Mother Earth. This healing snuff is used by traditional peoples to cleanse the mind, purify the thoughts, bring clarity and spiritual alignment, and to clear negativity and heaviness from the body, mind and soul. Indigenous tribes have been working with this medicine for thousands of years to heal their communities and connect to Creator and the spiritual world. This medicine takes days to make and is a very labor intensive process made in a ceremonial way out of various Amazonian healing plants.

Sananga eyedrops are a sacred and potent medicine used by the Amazonian tribes for healing of both the physical and spiritual bodies. It is made from the root and bark of a shrub from the Amazon. Sananga is a medicine that sharpens the eye sight, opens intuition and visions, removes blockages and opens paths in our lives. During the ceremony contact lenses must be removed to receive this medicine.

Nicole is a dedicated student of Amazonian plant medicines. She has studied and served with her indigenous teachers for many years, and continues to return to the forest each year to deepen her prayer and study. Nicole has completed a month long dieta with the Yawanawa tribe in the village of Mutum, and it was in this dieta that she completed an initiation with her teacher to serve the sacred medicine of hape. It is with the blessing of her indigenous teacher that Nicole offers this medicine and ceremony for others. The hape being served in this ceremony was made during a sacred dieta, making it charged with very strong healing energy and prayer. Throughout the ceremony Nicole will share traditional Yawanawa chants (saitis) as well as Yawanawa songs on the guitar.

Andria Bunnell is an Arizona based musician, Sound and Reiki Practitioner and Ceremonialist who has been tapping into the power of sound (vibrational medicine) since childhood. With many years of experience, she holds a deeply compassionate space and brings a unique style that is forged from her wide range of influences, her Mexican and Indigenous lineage and a deep respect for the healing power of sound.
