For writers, Artists & Creatives in ANY Aspect OF LIFE

An immersive psychedelic program & retreat to catalyze your creative VISION.

AUG 9-11, 2024
Drala Mountain Center, Colorado

A secluded sanctuary, surrounded by hundreds of acres of natural beauty.


“Doing the ceremony was instrumental to where I am right now, I was at a crossroads in my life and the experience gave me the clarity and the answers that I needed to go forward…”

Paulina Alanis and Marco V Morelli, bring over two decades of experience working with psychedelic medicines (specifically, psilocybin mushrooms) and the creative process—now focusing on how to bring the two together for ultimate synergy.

Paulina has guided hundreds of people through medicine ceremonies, while Marco has worked as a poet, writer, editor, publisher, and cooperative community organizer, using psychedelics in his personal practice to inspire creative breakthroughs.

This unique program, including preparation and integration sessions, with individual coaching and community support, is designed for anyone who wants to explore the potential of psychedelics to enhance their creative life.

The Program

Two preparation and two integration sessions (online), with group meet-ups and individual coaching, will help you cultivate the right mindset to make the most of your retreat experience.

The Ceremony

You will have the option to go on a Hero’s Journey with psilocybin mushrooms in an intimate, small-group setting, and freely explore your consciousness, with our team of guides holding the space.

The Place

Nestled in the northern Colorado mountains, about 2 hours drive from Denver, soaked in natural beauty, the Drala Mountain Center provides our sacred sanctuary for creative exploration.


“Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.”
― Erich Fromm

The psychedelic experience provides a unique opportunity to access deeper layers of your mind, emotions, imagination, and spirituality. When used intentionally, in a safe setting, with trustworthy guidance, psychedelics can help you let go of your everyday preoccupations, clear blockages in your psyche, and open up to perspectives that you would not have realized before. A psychedelic experience can open the “doors of perception,” growing new neural pathways for creative problem-solving and authentic self-expression.
