In 2020, analysts predicted that the market could exceed over $100 billion. And now, startups, investors, and even universities are scrambling to enter the accepted psychedelic health treatment industry.

The Dimensions team was first inspired to put a luxurious spin on psychedelic retreats because some people “don’t want to go to Peru and put a yoga mat on a dirt floor,” Christopher Dawson, the cofounder and CEO of Dimensions, told Insider in an email interview.

At Dimensions Algonquin Highlands, you probably won’t be finding any “yoga marts on dirt floors.”

Instead, Dimensions calls the upcoming Canada location a “psychedelic healing retreat,” according to a press release.

In line with Dimension’s holistic approach to wellness, there will also be what it calls a meditation maze, scent garden, and access to outdoor activities like hiking and cross-country skiing depending on the season.

All of these amenities probably make Dimensions Algonquin Highlands sound like the average luxury resort.

But unlike the typical getaway, Dimensions’ guests will have access to psychedelic therapists and ceremonies led by “Plant Elders” who will assist with “personal healing work” and music, according to the press release.

Dimensions’ program is segmented into three sections: preparation, the actual psychedelic retreat, and “post-retreat integration.”
