Pia sewelies our future is ancient soul medicine psilocybin retreats Mexico

Pia Sewelies is a friend, medicine sister, and the founder of Our Future is Ancient and Soul Medicine Retreats, ceremonial psilocybin experiences in Mexico. She is a yoga and somatic movement teacher, and a student of non-dual Saiva Tantra and ancient shamanic healing rituals. Pia transmutes ancient practices and traditions into a modern-day language, bridging the gap for deeply transformative and nurturing transcultural healing.

The path of ceremonies and plant healing entered Pia’s life in a moment of personal crisis and overcoming years of severe anxiety and panic attacks. She was called to work with plant medicine, to explore and heal the depths of her suffering.

She found herself in the Amazon and spent extensive time learning from, and working directly with different curanderos in Peru, Ecuador and Mexico. She carries the traditions and teachings she received along her journey with the utmost respect, taking responsibility for the fact that this is a lifelong path of learning and growing.

Pia is a vision quester and devoted to the traditions of The Fuego Sagrado De Itzachilatlan and has fully committed her life to a path of service.

She keeps returning to study and sit in ceremonies with her teachers across the Americas.
