Sol Medicine Project, operating under the name Sol Tryp, Inc., officially gained non-profit status as a 501(c)(3) organization in early 2023. Motivated by the recognition of a critical need for accessible healing opportunities, our mission centers on extending support to groups often underserved. Presently, our focus lies on initiatives catering to Frontline and First Responders, Veterans, and First Nations. We extend our respectful acknowledgment, recognizing that our work takes place on the unceded territory of the Piro-Manso-Tiwa Nation, now identified as Southern New Mexico.


In essence, Sol Tryp, Inc. was established with a clear mission: to offer secure and scientifically grounded healing experiences to individuals and groups through dedicated initiatives in funding, research, education, and reciprocal care. Develop inclusive programs that honor and uplift individuals at various points in their life journey. Deliver sessions and programs designed to foster connections with oneself, spirit, community, nature, and culture.


As a for-profit healthcare entity, our commitment is to provide each patient with a holistic and enriching experience. In our non-profit capacity, we are driven by the principles of research, training, and reciprocity.
