Psychedelic Retreat Programmes

We provide legal psychedelic retreat programmes with a 5 day retreat in the Netherlands as the focal point. Our programme has a pre-screening and integration process supported by our team of facilitators.

Evidence-based scientific research shows that psilocybin may improve mental health. Our programmes combine best practice in psychedelic facilitation with the support of facilitation and a range of integration methods.

Our methodology is based on the work of Dr Stan Grof. We provide a safe container for you to maximise your experience with psilocybin in order to access your own inner healer.

What to Expect

Stage 1: Pre-screening

The Call

Once your application is submitted, our screening process begins. Each successful application will receive an hour consultation to ensure our retreats are mutually suitable and to answer any of your questions. Our retreats are not suitable for people who have had a mental health diagnosis (such as psychosis, schizophrenia, bi-polar, clinical depression or personality disorders), are currently on any psychiatric medication (including SSRIS), or are dealing with serious addiction or substance abuse issues.

Stage 2: Pre-departure

Intention - The Quest

Our pre-departure process allows us to communicate with all our participants, to answer any questions. We set an individual and collective intention and prepare for our journey. What is it that you intend to heal, how do you want to grow?

Stage 3: The Psychedelic Retreat weekend

The Vision

Our experience retreats take place over five days at one of our beautiful retreat centres in the Netherlands. Participants are asked to make their own way to Amsterdam by 17:00 on the first evening of the retreat. From there we arrange transport to our retreat centre.

On the first evening of grounding and preparation, we set an individual and collective intention. What is it you intend to let go of, what do you intend to heal, how do you want to grow?

Our psychedelic sessions take place the afternoons of the second and third day, and are followed by two powerful days of integration using different therapeutic modalities from Art therapy to yoga. Our programmes are based on the pioneering work of Dr Stan Grof.

The retreat ends on the evening of the fifth day.

Stage 4: Post-Integration

The Return: Embodying the Vision

Immediately after your retreat, we provide a one-on-one integrative consultation session to help you embody and integrate your experience.

A few weeks after your retreat, we will organise an online video conference for sharing, support, integration, and grounding. What have you learnt? How do you embody what you have learnt into your everyday life?

Why Psilocybin?

Psilocybin mushrooms have a long history of medicinal use, and are being investigated as a modern treatment for a range of mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, addiction and PTSD. Studies show that they can improve psychological health in the long term, can create lasting personality change, making people calmer, happier and more open-minded. Their use are associated with lower levels of mental illness. Research shows that just a single dose of psilocybin can lift anxiety and depression for six months or longer. They may be effective in quitting smoking and help with relationship therapy. Not only do they help people with mental health issues, they have also been shown to help people who are already well to improve their lives. Magic mushrooms can reignite a sense of awe in the world and can reliably trigger a mystical or spiritual experience.

Why us?

Our programme is designed to psychedelic facilitation best practise, supported by consultation before and after the experience, to provide you with the safest possible set and setting for healing and growth.

Is it legal?

We work in the Netherlands, where the sale and purchase of psilocybin-containing truffles is legal, allowing us to work within the law.

Is it safe?

When used correctly, psilocybin is one of the safest drugs to consume, having no detrimental effect on long-term mental health.

However, our programmes are not suitable for people with a history of psychosis, bipolar, schizophrenia, clinical depression or a personality disorders, or who are dealing with serious addiction or substance abuse issues.

 

"I would highly recommend Inward bound to anybody who is considering psychedelic therapy. They are very experienced, safety conscious and trustworthy company. The weekend was extremely well run and the facilitators were very friendly and professional. They were able to answer any questions you had and address any concerns. 5 stars, couldn't recommend it enough."

What the Experts Say

Dr Roland Griffiths, Professor of Psychiatry at John Hopkins University, Baltimore

Sam Harris interviews Michael Pollan on the benefits and risks of psychedelic therapy

This is certainly the most interesting and exciting thing I’ve come across in my career as a psychiatrist.. This is more about the patient’s relationship with feelings of depression and how they are understood and processed.

- Dr. James Rucker, Institute of Psychiatry (UK)

Psychedelics will do for the understanding of consciousness what telescopes did for the understanding of astronomy, and microscopes did for the understanding of biology
