1. Our connection to the Divine
We believe that we are all connected to the Divine and that we are all Divine. We seek to reconnect each of us to the Divine within and without. Through healing practices like breathwork, yoga, meditation, and Sacrament Ceremony, we create the container necessary for this reconnection.
2. Our connection to Mother Earth
We come from the Earth. We are a beautiful expression of her essence. Many have lost their connection to this glorious Spirit. We can once again use our practices to reconnect with this healing energy. Using Earth medicines is a very powerful way to reconnect to the Spirit of Pachamama.
3. Our connection to the elements
Many ancient traditions speak of our connection to the elements: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. The Earth represents a feminine energy that is healing, grounding, and strong. The Air is a Masculine energy that represents knowledge, wisdom, and flow. The Fire is a masculine energy that represents passion, transformation, and courage. Water is a feminine energy that represents emotions, creativity, and fluidity. We work with all these beautiful energies as Divine alchemists claiming our power in all.
4. Our connection to all humanity
We all come from Source and share in its divine power. Our connection to one another is a powerful blessing we have been given to help us walk more at ease in this world. We strive to revive this connection allowing us to step into the power of community we have been given.
5. Our connection to the Sacrament
As our connections grow many hear the call of the Medicine. The Spirit of our Sacrament, psilocybin mushrooms, sends out a clear message to those that are ready to sit with the Medicine in communion, with honor and respect. This powerful healing spirit awakens us, within and without, allowing us to evolve into our true nature, majestic and divine.

Bebe’s spiritual journey began early on in life; as a young child, she felt that she never truly fit in and, in fact, never desired to. She possessed a unique connection to the spirit realm, the Earth, and animals, and she knew deep down within that there was more. At the tender age of 12, she began researching and exploring the many paths one can take concluding that the specific path didn’t matter. What did matter was love and compassion. With a strong desire to follow her calling to help others experience and share this love and compassion with themselves and others, she has focused the last 20-plus years of her life on assisting others in their journey to self-awareness and healing as a holistic lifestyle coach, a psychic medium, and a licensed massage therapist. When she discovered the healing and transformational power that plant medicine provides, she realized everyone needed access to this beautiful gift. She began volunteering in ayahuasca, and ceremonial psilocybin spaces to learn hands-on how to hold space and how to become an integration coach, and how to continue to show people the yellow brick road to self-awareness, healing, and self-love. With her background and passion for psychology and medicine, Bebe has chosen to bring her gifts and knowledge of breathwork, massage therapy, microdosing, ice baths, integration, and more to our beautiful temple to continue to assist those that are ready and feel called to a new path.
