The Flourish Academy


The Flourish Academy invites you for an unforgettable Psychedelic Retreat in Vancouver, Canada. My name is Dana Harvey, and my mission is to help you get in touch and heal your mind, body and spirit. I am an experienced psychedelics and micro-dosing educator and guide who wants to use their experience to help you achieve tranquility and peace with yourself, nature and others around you. I offer a personalized micro-dosing program, integration and consultation sessions, support throughout your healing journey, and even coaching on matters such as public speaking and taking life into your own hands. Furthermore, I facilitate loving communities that will welcome you with open arms, where you can meet others who are on a similar journey to you, and where you can learn more about psychedelics, micro-dosing and other therapeutic practices.

Our programs will utilize the medicines of psilocybin, LSD and huachuma in order to facilitate your transformational journey. We integrate traditional and contemporary knowledge in order to create a robust and effective program. During my personalized microdosing program, you will experience an affectionate space where you will receive utmost attention to your needs. We will be calibrating dosages, maintaining a strong communication and having ample opportunities to foster dialogues about the process. With different tools, exercises and feedback mechanisms we will take your journey step by step and make sure you reach your destination as a spiritually-elevated being.

Johann Hari (author of ‘Lost Connections: Why You are Depressed and How to Find Hope’) has stated, and leading trauma expert Gabor Maté has echoed, that “the opposite of addiction is connection”. At Gathering Groups, we believe the antidote not just for addiction, but for so many of the mental health conditions plaguing our world today, is connection. Gathering has researched, designed and developed a plant medicine-assisted program that places community and connection at its core. The reported positive outcomes are staggering!

With mental health rates skyrocketing, and current treatments options having limitations, people are searching for alternative options for healing and growth. Gathering’s unique offer of intimate group work – creating community and connection – that can be accessed from the comfort and ease of home, combined with an in-person plant medicine ceremony, is an option with proven reported benefits that is being requested by clinics and clients/patients alike.

We offer men-only groups, women-only groups, co-ed groups, minority groups, family groups. Veterans, First Responders, end-of-life.
