Ayahuasca with Brad and Sarah

We create a container that is held in a very unique and modern way, while still honoring tradition. Our ceremonies are celebrations of life. We gather together to learn to integrate and become devoted students of the art of good living. We are all in this together, and each of us is a pillar of light that helps us to find our way to living well and embodying the essence of freedom in being.

We gather in the evening, and the ceremony opens with a group circle. Each participant has a one-on-one consultation with our facilitators, to discuss their intentions, questions, or desires. Sacred tobacco (Rapé) is offered for those who wish to commune with this Amazonian medicine that opens the third eye.

Our facilitators, steeped in the traditions and spirit of this medicine, have decades of combined experience. As students of indigenous Amazonian shamans, they have been blessed by the wisdom keepers to share the healing experience of this medicine.

Our expert team will prepare you for what to expect and how to navigate your experience. In our intimate group, you will be surrounded by support throughout your whole journey, with anything you need.

Sound Healing & Reiki with Jesse

An intimate experience using quartz crystal sound healing bowls, you will be immersed in the frequencies of healing sound vibrations. Receive group and personal reiki to balance the body’s energetics during the sound experience.

Integration Circles with Jill

How we process these consciousness-expanding experiences and prepare to re-enter our everyday life is an important part of the ceremony experience. Guided by Jill’s Daily Questions reflective journaling and sharing circles, you will begin to come home to your own knowing.

Your Guides Throughout The Experiences

Dusty Rainbow / Nick

Expansion is something deeply rooted in Nick’s career. He was an early employee at Uber, and then an Expansion Expert at Lime where he opened up 8 markets in 3 countries in 16 months. Nick has always walked between worlds, something that allowed him to excel in confluence point positions like expansion. Equally able to talk to engineers, marketers, ops people, and anyone in between, Nick’s motto has always been “I will meet you where you are, and show you where I am.” He was drawn to become a founding Collective Member of Con Smania as he instantly understood Jill’s vision and knew she was capable of creating a place that facilitates radical transformations.

Now Nick focuses his time on startup and business consulting and advising, as well as coaching and leading retreats for those in entrepreneurship and business who are looking for someone who can meet them where they’re at on their journey. He brings his natural skepticism and empathy to every endeavor and client and only seeks to be of service to those walking their path.

Nick had an experience early in his first burn in 2018 that led him on the path to becoming a Ranger. Delayed slightly by no official burns in 2020 and 2021, he became a Black Rock Ranger in 2022. Since then, he’s also Rangered at Love Burn, Namibia Burn, AfrikaBurn, Apogaea, and Bequinox.


Dr Quinn Trash Baboon / Jill

Jill is the Creator of Magic at Con Smania CR and steward of the project and property. A passion for supporting heart-centered entrepreneurs, you will often hear her say to “focus on your genius, let others focus on theirs” as a way for people to recognize how they can release control and work at the innersection of what lights them up and what they excel at. Retreats are her own place of deep contentment.

After many years of working with plant and being allies, Jill is most fascinated with the science of neuroplasticity and the spiritual expansiveness of journeying, breath, and meditation that can allow us to move through our own and generational trauma. A long time Pilates and fitness instructor turned business strategist, Jill’s background and blend of logic and loving awareness have led to this moment and this place in extraordinary ways.

A former member of the leadership team at NV88 – the Airport at Black Rock City, Dr Quinn Trash Baboon is truly excited to Welcome Home this group of Rangers.


Brad and Sarah

Brad’s true calling in life is helping others to remember their true essence. He has years of study, trainings, and experience with plant medicine. Brad speaks volumes through silence and presence, soul to soul. His compassion, love, and belief in the medicine create a loving space for profound healing. His wisdom and knowledge bring you home. Ceremony with Brad is like one, big long-
lasting, loving hug.

Sarah’s true calling in life is to invoke the Divine feminine in us all. She has been studying everything ancient her entire life. Her ceremonies embody trust, truth, and unconditional love. Sarah’s ability to summon the ancient ones through her music and prayer awakens your soul with wisdom. Her commitment to plant medicine reminds us to trust the sacredness of not only our own life but all life.

Ceremonies with Sarah and Brad are rooted in the honoring of Grandmother Ayahuasca as ancient wisdom to help us remember our true self. Their commitment to the traditions, teachings, and guidance is what creates the
scared space for surrender, stillness, and connection to our infinite light.
Sharing this experience will take us home and set us free to know we are simply love.

Their ceremonies are truly something to behold. They bring years of combined study and experience serving plant medicines of many kinds and honoring many traditions. All of this comes together to create a very unique and more
modern container for supporting the liberation of each participant. Their vision has become a living testament to honor all that is with unconditional love and to be of service to the greater plan that is creation.

The physical manifestation of the life’s work of our managing partner, Jill, in supporting others so they can share their mission with the world. Each structure is unique and positively invites exploration through the winding paths and gorgeous landscaping.

Bordered by our own landing strip – or pasture when our equine friends come to visit – and very few neighbors, this safe and sacred space is also just a 10 minute stroll to the Pacific Ocean.

Guanacaste trees shade the property and provide home to a variety of wildlife, including the howlers, parrots, iguanas and so much more.

From hidden meditation spots to the grand and magnificent main building we call Haven, there is so much to explore on the property, or just lounge at our unique and fun pool for the rest you deserve.
