Seri Bufo Alvarius Retreat

An all-inclusive retreat with the Seri (Comcaac) tribe, the custodians of the Bufo Alvarius medicine in Sonora, Mexico. This is aimed at those looking to deeply connect with the ancestral traditions, unique culture and ceremonies.

The elders of the tribe are coming together to share their sacred, ancient, ancestral wisdom and ceremonies with us such as a desert sweat lodge, energy healings, Bufo Alvarius ceremonies as well as their unique cosmology.

You will be staying with the Seri community in Sonora, Mexico surrounded by red mountains, desert and the sea. There is no phone reception and little to no Wifi making it an optimum time to switch off and immerse in the experience.
