This wounding from our childhoods can have a lasting impact on our present day lives, affecting everything from our physical health to our relationships.

By choosing to connect with and heal the Inner Child, we can free ourselves from the heaviness that burdens us, creating a healthier, loving relationship with ourselves.

Plant medicine serves as a mirror, reflecting our internal landscape and guiding us on a journey back to our true selves.

This journey, though sometimes challenging, is a vital aspect of healing and growing, both within and beyond the ceremony's boundaries.

A plant medicine ceremony can bring emotions, fears, and discomfort to the surface, urging us to confront them and recognize our power to choose how to address them in the present moment and throughout our lives.

Often the roots of our challenges trace back to childhood experiences.

In ceremony we can be guided to revisit these memories, revealing how they shaped our perceptions, values, and beliefs.

Childhood reactions to negativity often involved evasion and avoidance of pain, leaving energetic imprints that persist into adulthood, affecting how we manage stress, our susceptibility to depression and anxiety, and our connections with ourselves and others.

Tending to our inner child radiates healing effects throughout our lives, restoring authenticity, presence, and tranquility.

Transformation emerges from directly engaging with our inner child, facing emotional pain and discomfort that we have buried.

During the retreat Joe will also be offering cold plunge exposure sessions as well as group breathwork therapy.

Breathwork Therapy

The goal of any breathwork therapy is to support people in achieving a greater sense of self-awareness and capacity for self-healing. It also helps people work toward overall improvement in mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.

When you take time to slow down and purposefully breathe deeply and slowly, you tell your brain that everything is OK. Your brain communicates to your body that it’s safe to relax. The fight or flight response decreases, and your body can begin to function normally again.

It’s easy to become overwhelmed by stress and feel out of control. When you focus on breathing, you allow your body the chance to reset and recover from the negative side effects of stress.

Physical health benefits of breathwork may include:

  • Balanced blood pressure
  • More time in deep sleep
  • Reduction of PTSD and feelings of trauma
  • Stronger respiratory function
  • Better immune system
  • Release of stress hormones from your body

Physical health benefits of breathwork may include:

  • Fewer feelings of depression and anxiety
  • Better mental focus and clarity
  • Decrease in addictive behaviors
  • Allowing emotional scars to heal
  • Better outlook on life
  • Contentment and joy

Cold Exposure Therapy

Joey also practices cold exposure therapy and offers guidance for others wanting to immerse themselves in extreme temperatures.  Frequent exposure to cold is linked to various health benefits.

For example, scientists have found evidence that cold exposure speeds up metabolism, reduces inflammation, swelling and sore muscles. Many athletes use ice baths and other types of exposure to cold to speed up recovery after physical exercise.

Furthermore, cold exposure therapy is also linked to improved quality of sleep, improved focus and improved immune response.


"At a time where I wanted to try something new to improve my mental and physical health as well as my relationship to myself and my family, I stumbled upon the description of one of Billie's plant medicine retreats and decided to register based on her training and experience.

It was one of the best decisions of my life and my expectations were widely surpassed. I rapidly felt a genuine connection with Billie. Her authenticity, generosity and capacity for listening, teaching and energy healing are astounding. Throughout the retreat, I felt supported, safe and, most importantly, loved.

I have since noticed in me a mental, emotional and spiritual shift I have never experienced before despite years of therapy. I am thankful for the new healing modalities Billie has introduced me to. The path I have glimpsed for myself doesn't look easy, but through the ups and downs, I have moments of hope and clarity, and feel blessed to know that Billie is there to support me."
