Are you in need of healing?
We are living in a time when many of the institutions that are supposed to be looking out for our health have simply been unable to prevent the ever-increasing rates of illness and disease that are decimating our world, causing a systemic breakdown of society as we know it. The Western medical model and pharmaceutical industry, while very effective for some things such as surgery, do not have the solutions that are ailing our world, for the very separation of medicine from nature and spirituality is at the core root of our ailing societies.
Fortunately, very brave wisdom keepers have kept the secrets of true, vibrant health alive, and we find ourselves in the midst of a psychedelic renaissance and a shift in what it means to be healthy. Science is irrefutably demonstrating the healing powers of nature for all illnesses and health conditions across the board.
I have spent the last six years of my life studying and applying the most powerful and effective healing modalities known on the planet to my own life and the result has been nothing short of a miraculous, joyful, healthy, beautiful existence.
I can show you how.
During my time in Oaxaca, I have been training under a well-respected curandera (medicine woman / wisdom keeper of the forest) as well as running our Ascension Sacred Mushroom Retreats and hosting ceremonies and healing programs both in person and online.
I have learned so much.
In an effort to spread knowledge of these powerful healing modalities, I have written a book about my journey, Taking Back My Mind: My Journey Out of Depression with Psilocybin Mushrooms, am hosting workshops and retreats in Oaxaca, am working on a documentary, have begun writing my second book which covers the journey from where Taking Back My Mind leaves off and covers DMT, Ayahuasca, Peyote, intergenerational trauma, trauma bonds, and my recent challenges, and now offer personal development programs, mentorship, and health coaching programs.
I am honored to walk this path in life, and I wish to help as many people as I can.
Join me for a deep dive into the ancient wisdom, practices, rituals, and philosophies that have been carried forth from generations of indigenous wisdom as well as applying the most current, cutting-edge science and powerful healing modalities that continue healing thousands of people across the world every day.
Nature holds the keys to our health.
“Health is the soul that animates all the enjoyments in life, which fade and are tasteless without it.” ~ Seneca
Micro dosing / IFS Healing Program:
Micro dosing plant medicine has shown tremendous improvements in mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health in countless studies in prestigious universities around the world. Taken in subperceptual doses, micro dosing increases neuroplasticity in our brain leading to a more present, peaceful existence and an increased ability to adapt to stress. Combined with an integration program and experienced guidance, micro dosing could be the Archimedes lever in your life.

“Making the choice to do a ceremony with Gerardo in Oaxaca was life changing! I was able to surrender to the experience completely because of the trust I felt with Gerardo as our guide. I was able to examine myself in relation to my life, my partnership, and the Universe. I was able to release trauma and safely express deep emotions. I feel like I have been cleansed physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
I love my partner of 13 years in a new way. I am more fully embodied and that allows for much more love to flow through the relationship.
I highly recommend this full day of nature’s “therapy.” The work and internal challenges that I faced during the ceremony were 100% worth it because of the beauty, confidence, and connection I now have access to.
I could not imagine a more perfect location or guide for this experience!
My partner and I are very grateful!”

“I highly recommend Gerardo as a psychedelic ceremony facilitator. His expertise creates a safe and transformative space, guiding participants through a profound journey. His compassion fosters an environment for deep self-exploration and healing. Under Gerardo’s guidance, I received a transformative gift, healing ancestral traumas contributing to depression and anxiety. His expertise aided in breaking self-defeating patterns, bringing freedom to both body and mind, and soothing my nervous system. Since then, my heart has opened to more love and joy. Grateful for the impactful experience he provided. I wholeheartedly endorse Gerardo for his exceptional facilitation of psychedelic ceremonies.”

“If you are looking for a trustworthy guide in sacred ceremony, I highly recommend working with Gerardo! His thoughtful, caring, and supportive approach creates a safe space to journey deeply and let the medicine heal you. I’ve worked with many healers, and words cannot fully express the magical experience I had with his support. I have no doubt you will come away transformed!”
L, transformational coach
“Working with Gerardo has been a major game changer both individually and with my marriage. The work we’ve done together to identify, heal, and love all parts of me has changed the way I see myself. And it’s helped me see my wife differently too and have more compassion.
Already living on a spiritual path, I have a good foundation for inner work but the IFS model and the way Gerardo teaches it, is next level and helped bring me to a new place of self-awareness and armed me with the tools to face new challenges.
Anyone interested in positive change would benefit immensely from working with Gerardo. He’s kind, compassionate, teaches based on having lived it himself so is never judgmental, and it’s definitely his passion and a gift.”

“My first mushroom journey was with Gerardo about a month ago and it was really a very interesting, exciting and insightful experience.
I decided to take this mushroom journey with Gerardo as he inspired confidence from the moment I met him, and for such a personal experience, I needed to feel I could trust him (I was, after all, handing over a lot of responsibility to this man, as I had no idea how the mushrooms would affect me). I also crash read Gerardo’s book, Taking Back My Mind: My Journey Out of Depression with Psilocybin Mushrooms, first to really understand his approach. What convinced me to do the journey with Gerardo was not only his own story and experience with psilocybin mushrooms but the amount of research he’d done and the science behind psilocybin journeys and how it can affect the mind. I found it fascinating. Gerardo’s approach is very stylized and structured starting off with a short, traditional gratitude and cleansing ceremony, then a powerful breathwork session which was amazing… and a music playlist to take you on your journey, that was designed by John’s Hopkins University in the US for the effects the music and sound have on the brain. It is truly fascinating! Having Gerardo present as a support and guide throughout the journey gave me confidence and allowed me to relax into the experience. Gerardo is a sensitive, kind, thoughtful person who also takes you through a pre-journey exercise as well as a post journey reflection session. This journey experience has given me much to reflect on and I’m really glad I had my first journey with Gerardo. It has given me the confidence and interest to explore psilocybin mushroom journeying more in the future, as a tool for personal reflection, exploration, and self-discovery. Thank you, Gerardo!

“I was introduced to Gerardo by a mutual friend. I was interested in his breathwork classes and his vast knowledge of plant medicine. We spoke on the phone twice before I decided to work with Gerardo. We clicked and I trusted him. I read Gerardo’s book and a month later we met in California. Gerardo put together a workshop for my husband, daughter and her boyfriend. We learned more about plant medicine and the importance of intention and ritual. He explained the Wim Hof Method before our yoga / breathwork session, followed by an ice bath. Afterwards we processed the experience and discussed what might be the next step. This was a life altering experience. Intuitively, I knew it would be. The same holds true for my family members. I Highly recommend working with Gerardo. He is very open, nonjudgmental, and does not push any agenda. Follow your heart! So grateful for this experience!”
“Working with and being in Gerardo’s life has been nothing but an absolute gift. The way he sees the world is just pure magic! His ability to articulate, cultivate, and facilitate this into positive healing change is just incredible!! His kind soul, ever-lasting support, and his eagerness to grow and evolve into his best self, shines in all that he does!! I couldn’t recommend working with him enough!!”
~ Carissa Lynne
“Gerardo was very insightful and was able to assist in articulation of issues that arose during the ceremony. The techniques that were passed on to me in order to maximize the ceremony afterwards were very helpful. At times after the ceremony, I felt I was able to transport my self to the freedom I felt during the ceremony where I was able to clearly analyze different attachments I had that had been causing me issues before the ceremony. I would recommend Gerardo in assisting you in maximizing your psychedelic journey!
~ Simon, Australia
“Gerardo came into my life during a dark time when I was coping with a lot of internal negativity and didn’t know how to manage it. He taught me a new orientation to my internal negativity that helped me shift it. This was the start of a profound awakening, and I will always be grateful to Gerardo for this.”
