“A much needed break(through)” 

Romy, June 2022

“The most supportive, meaningful and magical first experience with psychedelics” 

Maddy, February 2023


Our psilocybin-assisted retreats offer a safe, legal and supportive environment to experience a psychedelic journey, which can help you experience greater freedom, wholeness and creative flow. The psychedelic used at the retreats is the psilocybin-containing truffle, and the retreats take place in the Netherlands, where psilocybin truffles are legal.



We take great care to optimise the two key factors determining a psychedelic journey: set and setting. Our retreats are designed to prepare you to let go into a receptive, trusting state of mind (set), in an environment in which you can feel completely safe and supported (setting).

We include exercises and approaches from the Western clinical model, somatic and transpersonal psychology, as well as from ancient wisdom traditions across different cultures and times such as Tibetan Buddhism and the shamanic lineages of the  Americas.

You will:

  • 💁🏽‍♀️  Receive 1:1 guidance and support before and after the ceremony from our expert facilitators
  • 🧘🏼 Engage in preparation and integration activities before, during and after the retreat
  • 💞 Become part of a community by sharing the journey together with a group of like-minded individuals
  • 🌿 Be nurtured and nourished in a beautiful retreat venue, in nature, eating exquisite healthy food


“I feel a change in me I am eternally grateful for”

Preparation Support

Giving due energy to preparation before the psychedelic journey not only reduces the possibility of anxiety and tension blocking the flow of the experience, it also enhances the probability of an enriched, deeper journey.

Ahead of the retreat, you will: 

  • Receive reading material and suggested exercises to support your preparation
  • Meet your lead facilitator and fellow participants on a group video call to get to know each other

On the retreat itself, we offer:

  • One-on-one sessions with a senior facilitator
  • Individual and group activities, to help you feel well prepared, safe and bonded with the group before stepping into the unknown.

Integration Support

In many ways, the journey only really begins when the psychedelic effect subsides.

In the days after the ceremony we incorporate:

  • Solo and group integration activities
  • One-on-one sessions with a senior facilitator, to explore the deeper nuances of your journey

Post-retreat support includes

  • 3 weeks of group video calls
  • Suggested exercises to help you weave the insights from the retreat into your everyday life

** If you feel the need for extra support, we also offer the opportunity to schedule additional one-on-one preparation and integration sessions with some of our most senior facilitators who have a background in psychotherapy and a special focus on psychedelic work. **

Group exercises & Group support

On the retreat we can safely explore relating to one another in a held and loving space. Tremendous healing comes from being witnessed and accepted as who we are. The group is also a major resource in the integration process. In a society that hasn’t yet incorporated the use of psychedelics and other peak experiences into its fabric, the community of fellow retreat participants plays a central role as allies and companions on this extraordinary journey.

Our approach: Open & Deepen

Peak states, such as those experienced on psychedelics, can open us to what is important in life, and steer our course, but they alone aren’t enough to transform insights into lasting change. Our conditioning quickly lures us back into entrenched behaviours. To deepen the insights gained during a peak state into a new way of life, we must address what is blocking us from experiencing our full freedom, wholeness and potential.

To help you do so, we incorporate a variety of transformational practices aimed to equip you with the essential tools needed to navigate your ongoing journey: 

  • Meditation and contemplative exercises
  • Movement and embodiment practices
  • Nature connection
  • Creative expression
  • Ritual and ceremony




We always begin the first full day with a late afternoon ceremony, meaning you will have had nearly 24 hours to properly land and feel safe, settled and connected to the place and the group.

On our 4-day retreat, you have an entire day after the psychedelic ceremony dedicated to integration, honouring the precious window of time when one is still open and bathing in the ‘afterglow’ of the experience. This is a crucial time to harvest the insights and start weaving them into our way of being.

It gives you time and space to unpack and deepen any insights gained from the ceremony, through facilitator support and the various integration exercises on offer, the design of which is informed by the very best of personal and spiritual growth modalities.

Originally operating under the banner of The Psychedelic Society’s Experience Retreats, our team of seasoned and highly skilled facilitators pioneered the first program of its kind in Europe in 2016. We have been diligently refining our retreat program ever since, to provide the most optimal and enriching experience for our participants.


Hana Wold | Lead facilitator 


I’ve always felt a curiosity to ask the deeper questions, a hunger to know and understand my innermost self and to live a relationally rich life of connection, purpose and meaning. As a teenager I discovered Buddhism, yoga and psychedelics nearly two decades ago.

I gained a BA(hons) degree and used my love for creativity to build a successful career as a designer in London. Whilst a joyous and formative time, the pace of life disconnected me from my true self. A severe burn-out and 8-month migraine in my mid-twenties invited me to look deeper and led me on a path of self-discovery. I left everything to follow a life long calling to travel and live in the Americas. On this 4 year journey, I worked with plant medicines in their native environments in the Shipibo tradition. I completed trainings, intensives and retreats in the Advaita Vedanta yogic traditions and Buddhist traditions and also explored embodiment, dance, breathwork & creativity as a spiritual practice. The life experiences I gained entwined symbiotically with these psychedelic and spiritual teachings; I began to connect more meaningfully with my true self, community and nature, learning how to listen to my heart, follow my intuition, lean into discomfort and trust in the unknown. This journey also readied me to face deeper traumas from my past. through years of self work, therapy and solo psilocybin ceremonies.

I went on to train as a yoga teacher, sound healer and facilitator for transformational spaces and nature connection. I led song circles and cacao ceremonies in London and at festivals. In 2018 I joined the retreats team as a facilitator. My greatest passion is to be together with others in our authentic expression and humanness, in our grief, struggle, aliveness and growth. I love to support others to be themselves and to express from the heart. I find joy uniting in song and dance and the celebration of our wild origins, in circle around the fire and under the stars. In the ways of gathering that are so innate within us and connect us to our ancestors and indigenous belonging. I love to bring nature connection into the work, weaving in time to learn, build relationship and draw resource from the land around us. It is a deep honour to do this work and sit alongside others on the journey.

I am committed to my own ongoing growth and am currently studying various psychotherapeutic modalities with The School for Essential Counselling, Integrative Somatic Parts Work with The Embody Lab, alongside training to become an accredited coach. I have also completed The Path of Love, the Essentials course at Psychosynthesis and multiple trauma trainings with Carolyn Spring.




Wonderful and life changing experience.

Ben, June 2023

I have come away with a beautiful new perspective on every way I approach myself and the wider world. 

Harry, February 2023

The most wonderful (serious) introduction to the world of psychedelics that I could hope for. And the beginning of an exciting journey.

Marjolaine, November 2022
