3-Day Psilocybin Retreat – October 2024

Psilocybin Retreat – Entheogenesis

October 25 October 27

Helvoirt

Helvoirt, Netherlands

Entheogenesis is more than a psychedelic retreat – it’s a comprehensive programme rooted in both modern science and ancient traditions, that prepares you for a profound psychedelic experience with natural, safe and legal psilocybin truffles.

Our experienced guides are here to support you throughout this transformational journey which will allow you to explore the uncharted territories of your internal landscape, gain fresh perspectives, and shed past beliefs, pains, and blockages that hinder you from fully embracing life.

Our work is based on the four pillars of preparation, ceremony, integration and community – ensuring that you feel guided and supported on every step of the way.

Please visit www.entheogenesis.nl for more detailed information.

Please find an insightful podcast episode by neuroscientist Andrew Huberman on the benefits and risks of working with psilocybin here.

Working with Psilocybin Truffles in a safe and ceremonial container has the potential to fully unleash the power of this medicine the most a serving way, whilst significantly reducing the risk of having an overwhelming experience.

What to Expect

LIVE MUSIC – TRIBE VIBES – DEEP CONNECTION – SAFE SPACE

Our team has put together a comprehensive trajectory of preparation and intention setting, psychedelic journeywork in a professional, safe and lovingly guided setting, as well as in-depth integration support both in person and online. This 3-step approach ensures that our participants get the most out of their journeys and find meaningful ways to bring the insights gained back into their day to day lives.

PREPARATION

Mental and physical preparation can greatly enhance the transformative potential of the psilocybin ceremony. To help you get ready, we provide a comprehensive preparation guide that covers how to prepare both your mind and body, what to expect during the ceremony, and how to create a personal intention. In addition to the guide, we also offer a preparation workshop one week before the retreat, which will provide you with all the knowledge and practical skills you need to confidently embark on your psychedelic journey. By taking the time to prepare, you’ll be able to maximize the benefits of the ceremony and deepen your personal transformation.

CEREMONY & RETREAT

Our ceremony takes place during a 3-day immersive retreat at a beautiful center surrounded by nature. On arrival, we will have time to land, spend time in nature, and in reflection. Our guides will take you through some rituals designed to connect you to your intention, before the ceremony on day two. There is space to clarify any questions you might still have. The ceremony is accompanied by live music, and our guides will be present in the space the entire time. The day after the ceremony, we will begin the integration journey together.

INTEGRATION

Integrating a psychedelic experience is the most crucial part of the transformative process. That’s why we provide integration support to help you explore and reflect on the insights and challenges you may have encountered during your journey. Our experienced guides help you to process your insights and clarify their meaning. By taking the time to integrate your insights, you’ll be able to sustain the positive changes from your psilocybin journey and continue to grow long after the ceremony has ended. There is also the option for 1-1 integration support with one of our integration guides.
