What to expect

Heroic Hearts Project hosts retreat programs throughout the year and has helped over 1000 veterans and veteran spouses reduce or eliminate their PTSD symptoms. The majority of our retreats are held in countries where psychedelics are currently legal, such as Peru, Mexico, and Jamaica in partnership with retreat centers there. All of our programs were designed by veterans for veterans, with the needs of this unique community in mind.

Select retreats are available in the USA in states where psychedelic treatment has been legalized. These are currently only available to local residents of those states to accommodate in-person integration. Once your application is approved, you’ll receive more information about which retreats you are eligible for. Our 12 week program consists of three distinct phases:


Preparation includes three, one-hour, private sessions and three one-hour, group sessions with an HHP coach to help set an intention for the retreat, safely follow the preparation diet, and get answers to any questions you have about how to approach the experience. It’s a time of reflection, awareness, and becoming aware of the patterns in your life that you hope to change.

The Psychedelic Retreat

All of our retreats are private retreats for HHP veterans, and they were designed with veterans in mind. You’ll have the support of retreat facilitators, HHP liaisons/coaches (and indigenous healers at international retreats). You’ll experience between 1 and 5 psychedelic ceremonies (typically using ayahuasca or psilocybin), on-the-ground coaching, and activities to help you connect to the beautiful environment, other program participants, and yourself.


It’s said that the work truly begins after you come home from your retreat. Integration is the work of slowly making sense of your experience and understanding how the lessons you’ve learned apply to your everyday life. Although integration never truly stops, the first four weeks are critical. You’ll have three, one-hour, private sessions and three one-hour, group sessions with an HHP coach to set the stage for your ongoing integration process.
