(Globe Newswire) Toronto — Dimensions Algonquin Highlands, a new wellness destination in Ontario, Canada, now welcomes guests to reserve for ‘Ascend’ — a self-betterment program featuring an immersive five-day retreat uniting psychedelic-assisted therapy with cannabis plant medicine and the healing qualities of community, contemporary accommodations, and meticulous service in the spectacular context of a biodiverse forest and the waters of Maple Lake.

“Ascend is for those seeking to find a deeper spiritual connection, enhance their relationships, strengthen their mind-body connection, and improve their physical and emotional health.” — Donald Currie, Registered Psychotherapist & Dimensions Algonquin Highlands’ Clinical Director

While on retreat, guests will be immersed in a holistic self-care program, combining psychotherapy, wellness practices such as reiki and acupuncture, seasonal outdoor activities, and chef-prepared, plant-forward meals tailored to enhance the mind-body connection.

The highlight of the Ascend program is a psychedelic Plant Ceremony which will help guests to explore new ways of seeing themselves and the world. Ascend at Dimensions Algonquin Highlands will integrate cannabis as a legal and natural psychedelic plant medicine in Canada.


Dimensions’ use of cannabis is based on timeless traditions and deep experience — and builds on the company’s recently launched, international psilocybin retreats. The Dimensions’ cannabis psychedelic ceremony can elicit a sense of inner connection and feelings of awe and boundlessness through professional guidance, personalized intention-setting, and a carefully curated environment.

Ascend is the first of five foundational psychedelic-assisted therapy and well-being Retreat programs. Leadership, clinical and practitioner programs will be announced in 2023.
