InwardBound January 2021 Group Retreat

With Dr Darragh Stewart, Rob Coffey, Caroline McMullen and Aoife Howe

January 15 - 19, 2021

5-Day Psychedelic Retreat

Our January 2021 retreat takes place in a beautiful quiet rural location in the north of the Netherlands. The retreat centre is a spacious but cosy traditional farmhouse with beautiful views all around. The venue is surrounded by mature trees, canals and farmland and is close to the North Sea. Amenities include a sauna, hot tub and large open fireplace.

The Spring retreat will be intimate, group-oriented and will faithfully contain the healing process. During the 5-day retreat, we will have 2 sessions with psilocybin truffles, complemented by a range of activities designed to maximise your experience and affect lasting change in your life.

This forms the focal point of our Psychedelic Retreat Programme.
