PREPARATION

When you commit to actively participating in your personal growth, you invite your higher self in to assist in creating experiences that align with your growth. Preparing your mind and body is an integral part of this journey, allowing the medicine to go deeper during Liberate. Your intentions are the vehicle through which you actively participate in channeling the energy that comes through during our time together. Speaking and writing your intentions allow a more concrete roadmap for your manifestations.

 

Below are our recommendations that you can begin now to assist you in preparing for our upcoming journey together:

 

INCORPORATE

  • Breath work

  • Journaling

  • Yoga & stretching

  • Meditation and time in nature

  • Drink more water for hydration

  • Fresh organic juices, fruits, and vegetable soups

  • Whole foods high in vitamins and minerals

  • Inspirational documentaries and films

  • Relaxing instrumental music (such as binaural beats and the sounds of nature)

AT LEAST 10 DAYS PRIOR (IMPORTANT)

  • Cut out alcohol consumption & recreational drugs

  • Cut out anti-depressants or any type of SSRI drugs

  • Cut out spicy foods 

  • Cut out foods containing gluten 

  • Reduce salt and sugar intake

 

ELIMINATE

  • Caffeine

  • Processed and fried foods

  • Foods high in sugar (such as boxed and canned items)

  • Heavy meats (such as beef and pork)

  • Prescription drugs (at least 3 days prior)

  • Toxic consumption (thoughts, relationships, music, television, etc.)​

 

It's important to remember that preparation is not about being perfect. You are preparing your body and your mind for a period of learning, transformation, and healing. The optimal condition to receive what we need from these ceremonies is to have a clean, pure vessel (body/mind) as undistracted as possible. Many of the things we put into our bodies and the people & places we surround ourselves with can create a lot of “noise” internally, distracting and obstructing our ability to be truly present, aware, and grounded. “Quieting” the system (body/mind) as much as possible helps create much-needed internal space in ceremony. You know your body/mind best. In the weeks before our time together, pay attention to what is happening inside. Do your best to be aware of what you are using as distractions, what is not serving you, and what is nurturing you.

Kambo will be the first medicine we will work with. 

The spirit of Kambo contains an intelligence that is beyond our human comprehension. We have noticed that those who connect with the spirit of the frog oftentimes experience shifts before we come together in ceremony. This could simply look like closing your eyes, visualizing the frog, sharing your intentions, and asking specific questions or inviting the spirit to share with you what you are ready to receive.

We invite you to use these images and video to connect with the spirit of Kambo:

 

 

The frog itself is a bright green color and correlates to the heart chakra making it a powerful medicine for issues surrounding the heart such as self-love, trust, forgiveness, reconciling relations, and deeper and more intimate connections with self and others.​

 

WHAT TO BRING

  1. Passport

  2. Journal & pen

  3. Reusable water bottle

  4. Comfortable, tropical weather and loose-layered clothing (cotton and linen are recommended for Tulum's humidity)

  5. Bathing suit(s)

  6. Suntan lotion

  7. Mosquito spray

  8. Sacred items you wish to have blessed at the altar (ex. photos of ancestors, crystals, etc.)

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE

We highly recommend that you arrive at least a day in advance to avoid any flight delays or cancellations.

 

If flying in at least a day in advance:

You will fly into Mexico City Airport (MEX), and if you choose to stay in Mexico City (CDMX) before catching a bus to Cuernavaca, you can easily find an Airbnb between $30-$60 per night. Some safe and walkable areas to look for a hotel or Airbnb are

You can purchase your bus ticket to "CUERNAVACA CASINO" at one of these bus stations in Mexico City or online at https://pullman.mx/  (note that this website is in Spanish):

 

We are happy to assist you in making arrangements. When you are 15 mins. away from arriving at Cuernavaca Casino station, please text Mathis again so he can arrange pick-up. We are 10 mins. away from the station.

If flying in on Thursday:

You will catch the bus from inside the MEX airport. Follow the signs for the bus station after exiting baggage claim. Again, the station is inside the airport. If you need assistance, ask for directions to “Pullman de Morelos”. Once at the bus station, purchase a ticket (approximately $17 USD & a 1.5-hour ride) from Pullman de Morelos to "Cuernavaca Casino.”

 

The bus schedule is hourly, and we recommend purchasing a ticket when you arrive at the airport in case of any delays at customs. Once you've boarded your bus, please text or WhatsApp Mathis at +1 (415) 515-0661 to let him know you're on your way.

 

MEXICO CASH & TIPS

We highly recommend you notify your bank that you will be traveling to Mexico so that you have full access to your money. We have found that the best way to receive cash in Mexican pesos is to use the ATM (always decline the conversion rate), which can be done at the airport or at a bank. The banks with the cheapest atm fees ($1.50-$2.00) are Santander, Banorte, and Citibanamex). You can also use an exchange service at the airport, which is more expensive.

 

Approximate…

$100 pesos = $5 USD

$200 pesos = $10 USD

$500 pesos = $25 USD

$1000 pesos = $50 USD

 

Though tipping is not mandatory, you are welcome to show your generosity. We will collect any tips on the final day, and ask that you do not give directly to the staff.

 

We have been inspired by and called to work with these medicines throughout our personal development, and it is with great honor and joy that we share in such an intimate and safe space. We look forward to sharing our medicine, receiving your medicine, co-creating, and guiding you through aligning with your most authentic self. Please reach out to one of us with any questions.
