Frequently Asked Questions
Is there transportation provided?
Some transportation is provided if you are flying into Boston Logan Airport, or Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. Please email for further information and transportation arrangements. Additional information will be provided when signing up for a retreat.
How do I know if I am right for a ceremony?
Before becoming a member of Sacred Earth Sanctuary and attending one of our retreats, you will be asked to fill out a screening form, which can be found on the bottom of the “Our Church” page. After answering these questions truthfully and accurately, the form will be submitted to the church for review. All inquiries are usually responded to within 2-5 business days. If it is determined that you are not eligible for ceremony, please understand that these ceremonies are not for everyone, and it is important that all participants are physically and mentally prepared in order to ensure the safety of all individuals involved.
Do I have to be a plant-based eater to become a member?
No. Though a plant-based diet is highly recommended prior to sitting in one of our ceremonies, we do not require you to live a plant-based lifestyle to become a member of Sacred Earth Sanctuary.
Do I have to be religious to attend a retreat?
No, you do not have to be religious to attend one of our retreats. We are open and respectful to all beliefs, however, to attend a retreat, it does require you to become a member of Sacred Earth Sanctuary. Before becoming a member and attending a retreat, please take some time to review our Statement of Beliefs to make sure that you are comfortable with our beliefs.
Is there financial assistance available?
Yes! Though it is not guaranteed, Sacred Earth Sanctuary has created a Pay It Forward Program, where individuals are able to donate to help others who may need assistance. The available funds will be dependent on the current amount within the account at the time of inquiry. For more information, please email us at SacredEarth.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are the ceremonies at Sacred Earth Sanctuary legal?
Yes. The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of allowing churches to utilize natural plant entheogens during religious services. Psilocybin Mushrooms are our primary sacrament, and we have the right to utilize them in our religious services as a part of our faith. Kambô is currently legal outside of religious practices, however, Kambô should ALWAYS be used ceremonially, honored, and sourced ethically. We are aware of the mistreatment of the Giant Green Monkey Tree Frog (Phyllomedusa Bicolor) and we make great efforts to ensure that our source honors and respects this sacred animal.
