Inwardbound Visionary Inspiration Retreat for CEOs, entrepreneurs and leaders
With Rob Ó Cobhthaigh, Dr. Darragh Stewart, Nicky Halliday- Nutritionalist, Aoife Howe and Caroline McMullen
January 17 - 26, 2022
The Inwardbound team are running a very special visionary 10 day retreat in Costa Rica for executives, CEOs, and thought leaders.
This retreat has a very special intention- to help leaders to re-focus their energy on their correct life path. Aligning words, with thoughts, with actions, with emotions. Once we help you re-align, we will help you re-vision.
Life purpose will be the intention of this retreat, allowing people the time and space to re-vision, and re-new their life direction. We will be using psilocybin to help guide and direct you to your life purpose, with 3 journeys over the course of the retreat.
This retreat will be based on the ancient Irish concept of Imbas Forosnai, or visionary inspiration. The filidh, or druids, would consciously use altered states of consciousness for visionary inspiration. Through the use of psilocybin and other shamanic techniques, we will help you reconnect to your own imbas forosnai, or visionary inspiration.
We will help you reconnect to yourself, to others and the natural world, so that you can be an agent for positive change in the world.
Our programme is supervised by trained psychotherapists, and has a pre-screening and integration process supported by our team of facilitators.
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.
