I have had the pleasure of participating in individual sessions as well as a tailor-made weekend retreat. Each time, the experience was profound and illuminating, and I left with a changed outlook on life and deeper knowledge of myself. Graham and Maria have created the perfect environment for psychedelic discovery, starting with meticulous planning and preparation — such as a chat weeks before the event — and ending with a long de-briefing talk and detailed journey notes. The setting is beautiful, safe and comfortable, and Graham and Maria maintain the highest standards of professionalism throughout. Their guidance is informed by deep knowledge of the subject and a wealth of experience, making for a safe, calm and compassionate journey for both beginners and seasoned travellers. In addition to guided meditation, the weekend retreat also included breathwork, yoga and massages (and excellent vegetarian food!). I wish Graham, Maria and their team success and fulfilment on their own journey and I will certainly be back with them in the future.
I have suffered from insomnia from being a teenager and taken prescription sleeping tablets for over thirty years. After trying to come off them numerous times without success, (until now) I thought I would try a psychedelic session, plus a friend of mine had visited Sanctum a couple of times and couldn’t recommend highly enough. My guides were amazing, so warm and empathic. I felt safe and secure at all times knowing that someone was with me throughout. It was my first experience with mushrooms and I felt a little apprehensive. However, Graham answered all of my questions thoroughly. I then went into a lovely calm room, we did a meditation and I set my intention, which actually wasn’t around coming off the sleeping tablets – that was an added bonus! I relaxed and let the journey begin. What can I say, I had the most lovely, calming spiritual experience. I felt it was the first time in my life that I had been able to just let go. I made peace with myself on some issues from many years ago. As a result, in the days that followed I felt stronger, calmer and that it was now time to let go of the addictive sleeping tablets. I had the strength to come off them within ten days and stay off them. Thank you so much. I will definitely be going back, as I want to feel the calm once more and see what the session will help me with next time.
I have suffered from recurrent severe clinical depression and anxiety my entire life.i have had decades on antidepressant medication and have tried various alternative therapies including CBT,rTMS and many others. I learnt about Psilocybin sessions from the BBC documentary which outlined the research carried out at Imperial College Hospital in London I then made contact with Graham at Sanctum near Alicante. I have now had two sessions with Graham a few weeks apart.To say that this has changed my life is NO understatement.When I arrived I was extremely anxious but both Graham and Maria were professional and extremely empathetic and guided me through an experience which opened up deep-seated and extremely painful memories allowing me for the first time to deal with them and begin to move on with my life.Graham is an incredible inspiration to anyone suffering as I was and has (without exaggeration) saved my life.For anyone in a similar situation I would say go and try this amazing experience. Thank you Graham for everything you have done for me and many others
Wonderful experience that I can only recommend! Graham and Maria held such a welcoming and loving space for us. You are in good hands ! The head & neck message from Maria followed by the guided meditation from Graham really helped create the perfect setting to start the trip. The playlist was wonderfully chosen and has truly moving songs that completely transported me away. I’ve never felt such releasing, healing and heart opening emotions. I was in pure awe!!! This experience definitely changed the way I appreciate music and even life itself! I feel much more aware of the preciousness and beauty of being alive and expressing my true nature. The lovely beach by El Campello, where Sanctum is located, worked wonders for grounding and reconnecting with nature after the session. Could not have picked a better place! Thank you so much Graham and Maria, Im truly grateful !
