InwardBound Private Psilocybin Retreat Programme

With Rob Ó Cobhthaigh, Dr. Darragh Stewart Phd, Nicky Halliday, Caroline McMullen, Michael Ledden- Psychotherapist, Renee Hendriks, Sophie Adler- Psychologist, Helena Angelini- Psychologist and Dr Lauretta Cundy Phd, Psychologist

Open Dates

Please note: We are fully booked for privates up until the end of April. Please see our group retreats or get in touch for the cancellation list.

To apply please fill out our pre-screening form and secure your place with a deposit. Once received we will send our full screening form and arrange your screening and consultation call to assure your suitability for our retreat.

We provide bespoke private legal and safe psychedelic retreat programmes in the Netherlands. Our private programme is 4 days and supervised by trained our psychedelic facilitators, and has a pre-screening and integration process supported by our team of facilitators.

Our private retreats are suitable for a single participant or for small groups of 1-4 participants that already know each other.

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 can arrange suitable dates for you or your group to join two InwardBound facilitators in our retreat centre in the Netherlands. Once you have a date in mind please send us an email to [email protected] to book it in.

Dates are not fully confirmed until approved after a screening call and a consultation with the psychotherapist. Please only make travel plans then.
