About This Center

The intention and essence of the retreat is to provide a safe, supportive and loving environment for participants to experience profound spiritual insights about their True-Selves.

We harness the healing properties of the Sacred Plant Medicines, Cacao, Psilocybin Truffles and Rapé (smokeless tobacco plant) to enable deep Self-discovery and transformative healing experiences.

This is supported by group intention setting, breath-work, meditation, sharing circles and silent self-reflection sessions over 4 nights, allowing for a full day of integration before everyone returns to their normal life. There is a post-retreat support system in place whilst processing and integration continue.


Our Program Designs are Flexible to Prioritise your Well-Being.

Psilocybin mushrooms have a long history of medicinal use, and are being investigated as a modern treatment for a range of mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, addiction and PTSD. Studies show that they can improve psychological health in the long term, can create lasting personality change, making people calmer, happier and more open-minded. Their use are associated with lower levels of mental illness. Research shows that just a single dose of psilocybin can lift anxiety and depression for six months or longer. They may be effective in quitting smoking and help with relationship therapy. Not only do they help people with mental health issues, they have also been shown to help people who are already well to improve their lives. Magic mushrooms can reignite a sense of awe in the world and can reliably trigger a mystical or spiritual experience. Magic mushrooms have a long ancestral history of being used as a medicine and spiritual guide.
