Tobacco/Nicotine addiction is a harmful disorder that affects many people and can be difficult to treat. Yet Tobacco is a powerful and sacred plant for many indigenous cultures throughout the world. In the Americas, Tobacco is tied to colonization, slavery, and the decimation of indigenous cultures and practices. Through the colonial lens, Tobacco has been bastardized and presented in capitalist, consumerist culture as  cigarettes and nicotine products, which are far removed from the true essence and function of this sacred plant.

Through education, therapeutic guidance and ritual this program will focus on

empowering you with healing practices and strategies to shift your relationship with cigarette and nicotine consumption, by shifting your relationship with this sacred plant medicine and equipping you with practices, tools, and support in your healing journey from addiction.

This retreat will be held over a three-day weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) and will include the following:

~ Camping or glamping (for an additional fee) accommodations at the Liberation Pathways Farms and Healing Space

~ Education regarding the history of Tobacco as a sacred medicine and its history of colonization

~ Education regarding the physiology of addiction, specifically to nicotine

~ Exploration of ancestral lineage, historical/intergenerational trauma

~ Introduction and exploration of Western Attachment Theory and Indigenous Attachment model as they relate to addiction

~ Three Cacao and Tobacco Ceremonies

~ Group work: movement, embodiment practices, yoga, meditation, breathwork, group acupuncture, song circles, grief work

~ All meals and detox assistance with herbal teas, tinctures and nutrition support

~ Three months of weekly online support group for maintenance guided by a licensed therapist
