“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek”
– Joseph Campbell
“My journey with Inward Bound was an insightful and rewarding experience. Being able to reflect and share in a positive and open environment, in the hands of very knowledgeable and experienced facilitators, helped me to gain clarity and to build self-awareness.”ColmCork
“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.”JamesDublin
Our purpose is to reconnect people to themselves, to each other and to nature. We facilitate people’s healing, trauma release, exploration of the unknown, non-ordinary states of consciousness or shift in perspectives. We promote the exploration of inner creativity and personal development.
At InwardBound, our interdisciplinary team of psychotherapists, PhD scientists and holistic therapists believes in weaving together the threads of science and spirituality, knowing that the two ways are one. We work in the broad tradition of Dr Stan Grof – creating a safe container for people to access the wisdom of their own inner healer.
Irish Celtic Tradition- Imbas Forosnai
We come from a long tradition of psilocybin use in Ireland. Our Celtic ancestors used the wild mushrooms of Northern Europe (Psilocybe Semilanceata) and worked with the patterns of nature for healing and spiritual growth and we continue that land-based ancestral tradition to create a modern context for psilocybin ceremony and reconnection with nature. Reclaiming our own ancestral, Irish, indigenous tradition of psilocybin use for visionary inspiration and healing.
Preparation and Integration Programme
As part of all our group retreat preparation programmes in the Netherlands, we include 6 preparation and integrations sessions, including psychological coaching workshops, group preparation/ integration processes, and a one to one preparation and integration consultation with a psychotherapist.
Attentive Personal Care
We hold small groups with 4 facilitators (a balance of male and female) to a maximum of 13 participants. This low ratio allows us to provide the highest possible standard of care for our participants using humanistic psychology’s core conditions of: empathy, being real and unconditional positive regard. Private rooms are available on most retreats.
