In this psychedelic retreat, you'll be guided by our community of experts from intake to integration. We offer a comprehensive learning program consisting of meditation and breathwork practices leading up to a profound psychedelic experience with safe and legal truffles containing natural psilocybin. In your journey inward, we will assist you with the proper guidance, meditative practices, and immersive live music to help you reach your deepest state.
Your preparation starts with our psychedelic Masterclass in the Spinoza app. This is followed by a two-hour online preparation workshop where you meet your guides and curated group of other participants who will join you on your journey. You’ll learn how psychedelics work on a physiological level as we explore a number of meditation and breathwork practices, creating a stronger mind-body connection. With this, you will attain the proper knowledge and practical skills to confidently start your journey.
The pinnacle of the program is a beautiful psychedelic ceremony with immersive live music in our cozy yurt. This takes place during a one-day and one-night retreat in the midst of a lush forest. Based on your preferences and intention, you’ll receive a moderate to high dose of truffles containing natural psilocybin, allowing you to access deeper levels of consciousness. We mark the end of the ceremony with a five course organic meal, sourced from our garden, where we share our experiences and learn from each near a fireplace.
We take care of every detail, so you can comfortably turn your attention inward.
What follows the ceremony is an integration workshop, where as a group, we explore and reflect on the insights and challenges we may have encountered during our psychedelic journey together. In this workshop you will receive expert guidance and loving support to process your insights and evaluate their meaning. With this, you'll gain access to our Spinoza app, providing you daily practices, meditation, and breath-work tools to integrate your learnings into your daily life.Practitioners:
