The shift retreat was singlehandedly the most spiritual experience of my life. I had a few experiences with mushrooms in the past. One of those experiences was very challenging. So I entered the retreat with some anxiety. On top of that, I wasn't sure what to expect tripping in a room full of "strangers". I can tell you that by the time the first ceremony happened on the 3rd day, the other participants were anything but strangers. Kerrie and Alice do an amazing job setting the tone, training your mind to prepare for the journey and integrating the group together. The group environment made the experience so much better. Not only are the other participants not strangers, we have all built a deep bond that seems impossible over one week. We are all planning a reunion retreat in the next year to get the group back together. If you are working on something in your life that you want to change....stuck in your career, relationship issues, depressions, etc... this retreat is the place for you. I'm so glad that I did it. I'm very grateful for the support and guidance that Kerrie and Alice provided. They are two of the most amazing people that I've ever met.

It was not without some considerable anxiety that I approached the “Shift Retreat” as I rode on the train from Amsterdam. I had never taken Psilocybin and was quite worried about the potential for a “bad trip” to be frank. I was fortunate in meeting up with another retreat participant for the 2 hour train ride and her stories of working with Kerrie and Alice on a private basis previously really helped “ease my worried mind”. All 7 of us were met at the train station by Karl, (a lovely fellow and a great chef ) and ferried over to the house where we were warmly met by Kerrie and Alice. Over the next 7 days that warmness grew until I think we all felt a real sense of family as a group, something I had not expected at all. Alice and Kerrie had a full agenda that kept us either experiencing through the different ceremonies or integrating and sharing and learning throughout the week. What was also unexpected was how much we did outside of a ceremony and how truly valuable we all found this time. However, their experience with these substances and their deep understanding of the issues different participants were having was truly a remarkable thing to witness. I for one had absolutely no idea this week was going to be so powerful and valuable in helping me “shift” from where I have been to where I want to go. I can’t say that my psilocybin experience was easy, but at a couple of points where I felt in duress first Kerrie and then later Alice came over to help guide me through. I can’t even begin to describe how important and valuable their intervention was. They did it with love and compassion and at a depth I have never really experienced before. Not only that, they seemed to instinctively know what and where the issues lay, they helped me see them and move through to a truly magical, even sacred place; an experience that I can’t describe in words but will never ever forget. The location, the food, the atmosphere of relaxed comradery they created were all wonderful, but it was the depth of their wisdom and compassionate insightful guidance that made it one of the most memorable, perhaps the most important weeks of my life, and I will be forever grateful to them both. If you are considering this retreat, I have only one final word for you...GO!

I felt incredibly safe to take my shamanic journey into myself, shadows and all, with the loving support of these two shamans and small group of fellow journey-ers. Also the most delicious healthy food was provide I felt very taken care of.

I am so grateful for the psilicybin retreat with Kerrie and Alice. The location was beautiful and it immidiatly felt like home. Kerrie and Alice know how to create a safe and warm environment. They held beautiful ceremonies that helped me to dive deep into my emotions. Kerrie and Alice are an amazing team. They are really empathetic and I felt really supported by them during the week. I am extremely grateful for their help and guidance. It was an amazing experience that helped me see more clearly and helped me get a deeper understanding of what I want in my life. This week helped me transform my emotions and heal on a very deep level.

I was one of the participants on the first retreat. I didn’t know what to expect, but it was better than I could have imagined. Kerrie and Alice, the retreat hosts, use a fully integrative approach to healing with psilocybin, offering days of self-exploration and emotional healing processes in between the ceremonies. I was left with a much deeper understanding of myself and my struggles. I am very glad I went through this retreat, and particularly glad that it was with the people, guides, and in the setting that it was. I would not have been able to come to understand so much had it not been so well planned and conducted with such love and care. I have been to one other retreat like this with different hosts, and while that one was also overall a positive experience, this one was much better. The small group setting combined with the skills of trained, experienced, intuitive guides made this experience especially powerful.
