 Private Ceremonies & Immersions with Michael


Bufo Alvarius aka Incilius Alvarius is as a powerful toad medicine, here to help you heal trauma, dissolve karma and connect to your infinite oneness. Bufo Alvarius is burned and inhaled via a glass pipe in a safe, trauma-informed and nurturing ceremony space for your personal Healing & Evolution. The first most intense phase is around 10-15 minutes, followed by a reintegration phase into the physical body which can last an additional 30 - 60 minutes. A second full dosage may be provided at my discretion if you desire it. Bufo Alvarius Ceremonies are one of the most rapid and effective methods of healing trauma and catalyzing non-dual awakening. Deep repressed layers of unconscious trauma can quickly rise to the surface, to be felt, healed and released. One may experience complete dissolution of the human “ego” self, experience other lifetimes, direct connection with source, have out of body experiences, and merge with one-consciousness beyond the veil of the illusion of separation. You are invited to let go of expectation, trust your higher-self and allow the medicine to transform you and meet you where you are. Each Bufo Alvarius ceremony experience is unique. I provide a safe, supportive, multidimensional and trauma-informed container for you to come home to the truth of who you are, whatever your experience may be.

Multidimensional trauma-informed support to assist you in integrating your Bufo Ceremony experience


Bufo Alvarius is one of the most effective tools for non-dual awakening healing from past trauma. During a single Bufo ceremony you may experience:

  • Somatic Multidimensional Awakening through healing trauma and non-dual awakening

  • Direct experience of non-duality (One Consciousness)

  • Dissolving & healing karmic imprint (Multi-lifetime healing)

  • Healing from trauma, abuse, PTSD, stress, addiction, anxiety, fear, depression etc. (Current life-time healing)

  • Recognize the truth of who you are beyond the veil of illusion

  • Release emotional pain at the root cause of suffering

  • Release fear of dying

  • Temporary dissolution of ego

  • Remember your faith in the All That Is

  • Releasing of black magic, negative energy and mind control programs

  • Release limiting beliefs

  • Rediscover your purpose

  • Change the way you view and experience physical reality

  • Experience unconditional love

  • Embody your soul blueprint

What may take decades of psychotherapy or spiritual practice can be experienced during a single Bufo ceremony. Bufo Alvarius is one of the most powerful entheogens on the planet. Your beliefs about reality may be shattered as you see beyond the illusion of your physical experience. Deep layers of your unconscious may be be revealed to yourself that can be difficult to acknowledge. The bufo ceremony is just the beginning. Integration can take days, weeks or months to process as you accept, acknowledge, integrate and anchor your experience into physical reality. You should be prepared to do the inner-work following your ceremony. I am here to support you each step of the way with my Healing Evolution Sessions. If you are not ready to see yourself, change your perspectives and do the inner-work following your ceremony then I would advise against this medicine.

"I had the pleasure of being served Bufo by Michael on multiple occasions. His ability to hold a tight, safe and secure space, plus his depth of knowledge in regards to integrating the life changing experiences I had with the medicine were unrivaled. I would recommend anyone interested in exploring the medicine of Bufo to do so under Michael's supervision."

Bufo helped me to trust my inner truth, heal childhood trauma and dissolve a lot of the karma that I brought into this life. It is my honor to serve Bufo Alvarius to others to catalyze their own Healing Evolution.”

– Michael Thornhill, Co-founder of Casa Galactica

I am Michael Thornhill, cofounder of Casa Galactica, trauma-informed plant spirit healer, somatic multidimensional trauma healer, first aid trained, ayahuasca ceremony leader, Bufo Alvarius ceremony leader, non-dual teacher, professional channel, qigong practitioner, advocate and teacher of trauma-informed care, musician and a loving husband to my wife Jamie. I have been facilitating and leading medicine ceremonies since 2017. Whilst I have learnt and studied with indigenous teachers in the Amazon Rainforest,  I do not adhere to any particular tradition. I describe the work that I provide as a trauma-informed path for non-dual awakening. I am committed to safety, ethics, trauma-informed care, working in integrity and assisting you to navigate multidimensional realms as an empowered, sovereign being and recognizing your true infinite beingness.

As a child I experienced traumas in the form of rape, molestation, violent ritual abuse and gang violence which left me with undiagnosed PTSD, suicidal ideation, anxiety, depression and a plethora of addictions that I used from my early teenage years to help to keep me feeling safe. Ayahuasca was the first plant medicine to help me heal from these addictions, so much so that I decided to come to the Amazon Rainforest's to learn how to hold ayahuasca ceremonies and be in service to others. In early 2022 I began working and training with Bufo Alvarius intensively. This powerful and beautiful medicine helped me to further trust my inner truth, heal deep layers of childhood trauma, dissolve a lot of the karma that I brought into this life, heal from negative energy and black magic that I received throughout my life, and discover the deeper meaning of soul level accountability for all experience in this life-time. As a teacher and explorer of non-duality, nothing has brought me into such direct experience of my oneness as Bufo Alvarius. Bufo Alvarius shifted and changed the way that I work with Ayahuasca, my awareness of the truth of who I am, my understanding of the true non-dual nature of reality and has positively influenced all aspects of my work in service to others. It is my great pleasure and honor to serve Bufo Alvarius to you in a multdimensional, trauma-informed container for Healing and Evolution.
