Sand Symes is one of the most sought-after mentors in the psychedelic field, specializing in helping women ready to expand, express, and elevate themselves. With a distinguished career that spans over four decades, including years as a dedicated social worker, Sand expertly guides women to reshape their identities and amplify their visions, empowering them to live authentically and vibrantly.

Her deep-rooted expertise is enriched by extensive shamanic training under the guidance of a Peruvian Medicine woman, spanning a 16-year apprenticeship. Additionally, Sand has gained profound insights from her revered medicine teachers of the Ecuadorian rainforest, the jungles of Peru, and the Cosmology of the First Nations people. Yet she gives the medicine plants themselves, the full honor of being her most powerful teachers of all. Her wisdom and experience come from a powerful combination of sitting in, learning from, and eventually leading over 130 medicine ceremonies. Sand also brings the unique gift of a Seer, a talent nurtured since childhood through her profound connection with ancestors, which deeply informs her practice and enhances her ability to connect with and guide her clients on a spiritual and emotional level.

Today, Sand is passionately committed to nurturing the next generation of empowered female leaders. Through sacred mentorship and personalized psychedelic explorations, she assists them in uncovering and expressing their innate genius, passion, and purpose, paving the way for a future where they can lead with confidence and insight.
