5-MeO-DMT Information & Vital Education

This training will cover everything from trauma, preparation, integration, serving skills, and more. We aim to prepare students to confidently serve this medicine with full integrity in countries where not illegal.

During the training students will have the rare opportunity to get in-person experience in Mexico at a retreat center where they will learn important skills and apply them under the supervision of skilled practitioners.

F.I.V.E. 1 Year Facilitator Training

Who is this training for?


Individuals with thorough experience with 5-MeO-DMT. Individuals must have sat multiple times (exceptions for licensed health care professionals) and have had at least one year to process their first experience to apply.


Individuals who have done their own work on their paths before attempting to start serving others this powerful compound.


Individuals who already work with their own practice of self-inquiry on their path. A good understanding of one’s own patterning is needed to step into this role. 


Individuals wishing to work in a community rather than aiming to make their service about them. 


Individuals focused on learning as much as possible to support participants in getting the most out of their experience.


We have found that individuals who are already in a teaching position of some sort are best suited for serving this medicine.
