Mid- October 2023 Group Retreat- Netherlands (4 days)

With Rob Ó Cobhthaigh and Renee Hendriks

October 9 - 12, 2023


4-Day Psychedelic Retreat

Our mid-October 2023 retreat takes place in a beautiful venue situated an hour from Amsterdam. The authentic 19th-century Dutch abbey accommodation provides the perfect setting for your 4-day retreat.  A private room for every participant and the ample common areas provide a place for you to relax, journal and maximise your stay with us. The peaceful location of the retreat centre means there is plenty of opportunity for reflection and walks in nature. The chapel is available for private reflection and meditation.

Our October retreat will be intimate, group-oriented and will faithfully contain the healing process. During the 4-day retreat, we will have 1 session with psilocybin truffles, complemented by a range of activities designed to maximise your experience and affect lasting change in your life.

As part of all our group retreat preparation programmes in the Netherlands we include three preparation sessions and three integration sessions.

This forms the focal point of our Psychedelic Retreat Programme.

Why InwardBound?


  • 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 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 3-4 facilitators (a balance of male and female) to a maximum of 13 participants. This low ratio allows us to provide the highest possible standard of care for our participants. Private rooms are available on most retreats.
