Get to know your Modern Ancient journey.


At Modern Ancient Sanctuary, safety is our number one priority.

We confirm the suitability of our students through a risk based screening process to provide a safe and supportive environment for everyone involved.


While the majority of our students have reported positive benefits, psychedelics can bring about intense and often unpredictable experiences that may not be suitable for everyone. Therefore it is essential to screen individuals before admitting them to our retreat programs.

To honor safety, we carefully evaluate each student's risk level through a case-by-case assessment, considering various factors. Please note that our retreat programs are not designed to diagnose or treat mental health conditions.

Our booking process comprises the following three key steps:

  1. review contraindications via retreat booking page and checkout for reservation request to hold your retreat date and room preference

  2. receive email to schedule your online personal 1:1 session & complete prescreening

  3. complete payment via secure email link provided to finalize your booking and confirm your place
