I told Anton, Dominika, and Emil, my guide, that I wanted to challenge myself, to embark on a deep journey, no matter how difficult. I posed that intention for myself and also to assess if I could feel safe and supported in their hands. Little did I know that I would need as much support as I did, because my journey was quite challenging -- not surprising in hindsight, given the stubbornness of my ego. I went through hell and heaven, and Emil was my safety net and fellow warrior in the dark, a reassuring presence throughout the journey, and a wonderful brother with whom to celebrate the light. I owe them all an enormous debt of gratitude for providing me with all the safety and support I needed -- and a whole lot more.

Life-changing - Incredible, A must!
This place changed/saved my life! I came to Astraea Flora in a time in my life where I had a lot of stress, anxiety and years of unhealed trauma. I didn’t know what to expect, I soon was humbled. I have never been in a more nurturing environment in my life. You come to Astraea Flora for a very intimate journey with plant medicine and you just feel so wrapped up so you can begin healing. I now call this place my home because it is where I was reborn.
I have been to Astraea Flora twice now. The first was for the sacred plant medicine and the second was for a mushroom retreat. Both times were incredible and I received the same level of care.
If you are thinking of doing a psychedelic retreat then look no further. It’s such a vulnerable process that you need to be in safe hands and given the time you need to reflect after in the beautiful surroundings. The ceremonies, which are held in the dome and at night, are intimate and the most beautiful thing I have ever been part of.
Once you have been here, you become part of the Astraea Flora family, for some that is their only family… but the only family that is needed.

Beautiful place amongst the stars and mountains. The hosts were so very nice, caring and attentive. I loved our shaman, his energy and music were very soothing. The team created a pleasant family atmosphere where healing could take place. Basic and rustic facilities with all essentials. Very grateful for this experience!

When you step into the unknown and decide to do something a tad radical in life the only thing that your want is to feel comfortable and at peace when at your stay. That is exactly what you get here! The food is amazing, the views are stunning and the location is peaceful. The small groups make it perfect to connect and share experiences and the hosts Dominika and Anton treat you like family straight from the start. The ceremonies are in a perfect setting really allowing you to open up and let go. The experience can be confusing and doesn’t always make sense at the time but the ayahuasca shows you what you need to see not what you necessary want to see. It gives you a new perspective and clarity on life to deal with your challenges and grow your energy. Thanks you Dominika, Anton and of course our wonderful shaman, Christian!

Beautiful & brutal
It is hard to imagine a better place to be for this tradition. Secluded in nature, small groups, healthy and good food, simple and comfortable at the same time, music, gatherings around an evening fireplace. Dominika and Anton have created a little heaven on earth.
I felt so comfortable and taken care of, at all times. Both the hosts, the shaman Christian and the other participants (some I will never forget) made it a perfect stay. I had aone night turning out super brutal, unexpected things coming up. The cliche turns out to be true, aya doesn't give you what you want, but what you need. And at this place I was still as ok as I could be, with places to digest and integrate alone, as well as with others.
