A community snuffed 5-MeO-DMT experience

“Jaguars don’t smoke,” psychedelic OG Ralph Metzner wrote in his book on 5-MeO-DMT, The Toad and the Jaguar. “Jaguars don’t smoke,” psychedelic OG Ralph Metzner wrote in his book on 5-MeO-DMT, The Toad and the Jaguar. Taken intranasally, the medicine provides a slower, longer, and gentler experience compared to the rocket blast-off of the smoked experience. This gives us more space and time for inner work and to rest in the sanctuary of our hearts.

In the Gentle Jaguar Sound Bath, we offer gentle doses of 5-MeO-DMT through arbutus snuffers handcrafted by Vancouver Island artist @rtul.ritual. We welcome you to connect to your inner being, beauty, and power in the gentle big cat energy of the medicine and through immersive live sounds.

“The difference between the remedy and the poison is the dosage.” – Paracelsus

Is the sound bath right for me?

We created the Gentle Jaguar Sound Bath to be a safe and accessible context for those new to the medicine to dip their toes into the waters of 5-MeO-DMT. It is an opportunity to experience the beauty and magic of this medicine without committing to diving into the deep end of the full-dose experience.

We also created the sound bath to be a place for integration for those who have experienced higher doses of the medicine and are looking for a setting to revisit and reignite those deep explorations.

The medicine will be offered with an initial dose and two rounds of boosters, so that you have the option to stick to a lower dose or venture deeper into a medium-dose experience if you feel safe to do so. As always, all medicine is optional, and you can choose in the moment based on your own inner guidance how deep you want to go.

Whatever your background and experience, this is also a place to be in community with others on the medicine path, to benefit from the collective group energy, and to form new heart-centred connections with each other.

The Facilitators

Psychedelic facilitators Sagan and Helena are passionate about being in service in helping fellow human beings as they take the journey back to their hearts. They facilitate transformative 5-MeO-DMT individual, couple, and weekend group retreat experiences, a work they approach from a place of presence, compassion, acceptance, and love. They believe that creating a safe and loving container is the best foundation for the natural unfolding of our inner healing intelligence. They also host integration circles, facilitator circles, and community sound baths such as this one, and are developing a vision for a village that is global in scope and indigenous to our land, heart, being, and shared humanity.

They received training from Toad School for 5-MeO-DMT facilitation, Phoenix Academy Psychedelic Therapy training, and Vancouver Crisis Centre for crisis intervention and suicide prevention. Sagan is a Community Leader within The Flying Sage psychedelic community.

The Medicine

5-MeO-DMT is a powerful legal psychedelic that brings us into contact with our core essential self. In the journey to ourselves, we are invited to be with all the parts of ourselves that we have exiled, feeling the emotions that we have not given ourselves permission to feel. Joy, fear, ecstasy, heartache, anger–all emotions are welcome, often passing as quickly as they arise as the medicine moves through us.
