InwardBound Private Psychedelic Retreat Programme – Costa Rica
With Rob Ó Cobhthaigh and Dr. Darragh Stewart
From January 2023, Inwardbound has been running our flagship psilocybin retreats at a beautiful tropical location in Costa Rica. Since 2018, Inwardbound has been world pioneers in psilocybin retreats, with hundreds of clients have come through our psychedelic retreat programmes in the Netherlands.
From January to March 2023 we have a limited number of private retreats available in Costa Rica with our Inwardbound psychedelic facilitation team. The Inwardbound team have spoken at psychedelic therapy conferences about their pioneering work, and are world leaders in the field of psychedelic therapy.
Our Inwardbound Costa Rica programme is supervised by trained psychotherapists 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 believe 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 can arrange suitable dates for you or your group to join two InwardBound facilitators in our retreat centre in Costa Rica. Our current availability is from 10th January – 10th March 2023.
Our Costa Rica retreats dates are 4 days, including the 2 days of travel. If you would like a longer stay, we recommend adding an extra day, to make your retreat 5 days in total.
