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 with a psychotherapist 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, suicidality), cannot cease any psychiatric medication (ie 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?

As part of all our group retreat preparation programmes in the Netherlands,  we include 6 preparation and integration sessions,  including psychological coaching workshops, group preparation/ integration processes, and a one to one preparation and integration consultation with a psychotherapist.

Stage 3:

The Psychedelic Retreat weekend

The Vision

Our experience retreats take place over four or five days at one of our beautiful retreat centres in the Netherlands. Participants are asked to make their own way to Amsterdam by 18:00 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 at lunch time of the fifth day. For our 4 day retreats, we have one psilocybin journey and the retreat ends at lunch time on the fourth 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.

After your retreat, we organise three integration sessions including a psychological coaching integration workshop, a group integration process and a one-to-one integration consultation with a psychotherapist: for sharing, support, integration, and grounding. What have you learnt? How do you embody what you have learnt into your everyday life?

Why InwardBound?

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. 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. We hold small groups with four facilitators (a balance of male and female) to a maximum of 13 participants. This very 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. We do not claim to heal or fix anyone. Nor do we work with people in very vulnerable emotional, psychological or mental states. We do, however,  strongly trust in the power of psilocybin, the psychological process that unfolds on our retreats, and have witnessed many clients have transformative and life changing experiences.

As part of all our group retreat preparation programmes in the Netherlands,  we include 6 preparation and integration sessions,  including psychological coaching workshops, group preparation/ integration processes, and a one to one preparation and integration consultation with a psychotherapist.
