Aloha, we’re Leti and Chi, your psilocybin guides. We are forever grateful the mushrooms have found us and allowed us to thrive in their service.
Over the years, we have each struggled with challenging mental and emotional states -- hopelessness, loneliness, lack of purpose, feeling lost, depression, addiction. Fortunately, the mushrooms have become our greatest allies. The more we listen to their call and surrender ourselves completely, the more they help us process traumas at the root level.
After our first few experiences, like many who have enjoyed the positive effects of psilocybin, we wanted to share the medicine with as many people as we could.
In 2018, we started Truffles Therapy in the Netherlands. Journeyers from around the world joined our retreats to experience the healing power of magic truffles in a safe and supportive setting.
After working with more than 200 retreat guests in our first year, we moved to Costa Rica to give ourselves time to rest and integrate in the serenity of nature.
We spent months reflecting upon how we could best be of service. During this time, we revamped our sister project, Tripsitters, to broaden access to education and community -- the two pillars of democratizing psychedelic medicines. In the pandemic, we began a regular practice of working with people remotely. As we deepen our understanding of the psychedelic journey as a lifelong process rather than a single event, we have put even greater emphasis on preparation and integration as the foundations of our work.
Practicing self-care instead of only preaching about it, we evolved as facilitators. We softened and connected with the fluid, non-directed, receptive, and restorative principles of the sacred feminine. Like hermit crabs that outgrow their shells, we searched for a new identity. We asked: what do we stand for? What does the world need most? While brainstorming, Mushroom Tao resonated instantly. It embodies the essence of who we are and what we share.
Mushroom Tao is the culmination of our collective life experiences. We offer what we have learned in service to support your mushroom journey. We share structures and protocols that maximize safety and benefit. We find joy in empowering you to feel more aligned with your truth.
It’s an infinite path. As eternal students, we continually receive teachings from nature and people. We are happy to learn and share with you.
May Mushroom Tao be of service to all beings who wish to live with more courage and clarity on this fascinating adventure.Team/Medical Staff:
Why Mushroom Tao?
We are guided by the Mushroom Spirit and the Tao. As our teachers, they inspire us to flow with life in joy, balance, and harmony.
The Tao is simultaneously the natural order of the Universe, and a philosophy of living that follows nature’s laws. To live in accordance with the Tao means to trust life’s natural intelligence -- to bear witness to its organic spontaneity and creativity. We let beings go their own way without interfering. We develop faith, wisdom, and compassion.
Sacred Mushrooms are Taoist masters. They teach us to slow down and reflect. They guide us back to ourselves. They accept and love us unconditionally.
As your facilitators on the psilocybin journey, we support your experience as kind, silent witnesses to whatever unfolds naturally. We listen and hold a judgement-free container where you feel comfortable and safe to be vulnerable and let go of control.
We allow you and the mushrooms to work together, as you remember to trust your Inner Healing Intelligence to lead the way.
Aligning with the Tao and the Mushroom Spirit brings us back into balance. When we let go of the need to chase, achieve and accumulate, we realize we are already whole. We act from a place of abundance, generosity, and gratitude.
A world where psilocybin mushrooms can help human beings connect and live harmoniously with themselves, the environment, and all living beings.
Our mission is:
To offer support, resources, and environments for people to heal and grow with psilocybin journeys.
We thank you for trusting us to share our teachers with you.

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
Preparation begins the moment you commit to experiencing your deepest truth with us your facilitators, and the mushrooms as your allies. Simply committing to the process will bring about major shifts in your perspectives and priorities. The preparation phase of the retreat program typically lasts between 3-6 weeks.
The purpose of this phase is to begin or continue to:
Build trust in the process and with us, your facilitators
Microdose and/or minidose
Connect with and strengthen your relationship with the mushroom spirit
Reflect upon certain facets of your life (relationships, environment, diet, work, community, etc.)
Feel and express emotions
Let go of habits that cause you and others harm
Set and clarify intentions for your retreat experience
Sit with and alleviate some of the anxiety that arises as you step outside your comfort zone
To support you through the preparation phase, we provide:
Weekly check-in video calls
Emotional and energetic support through text and voice messages
Microdosing supplies and coaching
Connections with like-minded psychedelic and spiritual communities
Recommendations on practices, activities and readings that may help your process
After you return home from your time on retreat, we will support your re-entry into daily life as you continue to process the insights, perceptions and visions you’ve experienced.
During the retreat, you will practice some of the building blocks of integration: massage, journaling, meditation, yoga, sound healing, community, sharing circles, nourishing food, and reflective time in nature. We encourage you to develop practices that resonate with you, and to weave them into your daily routine.
For many, integration can be a challenging process. Old habits may creep in after a while. You may sense you have “lost” what you gained during the retreat. This is perfectly normal, and a big part of why we offer integration support when you return home.
It’s important to create time and space to land and readjust. As part of your commitment to this program, we request that you clear your schedule for at least a few days after your retreat to digest what you’ve experienced.
To support you during your 8-week integration phase, we offer:
Emotional and energetic support through text and voice messages
Regular check-in calls at your convenience
Helpful resources and connections to community, sharing circles, integration specialists/therapists
