About us

The Shift Retreat will be 7 Days to Rediscover your Path, Find Clarity and Create Lasting Change. The Shift is a Retreat Experience of Deep Personal Growth, Clarity, Direction and Togetherness. The week will include 2 x Psilocybin Ceremonies, a Kambo Ceremony, a Rapé Snuff Ceremony, Integration Therapy, Trauma Resolution, Deep Emotional Support, Vegan or Vegetarian Food cooked by our private chef and Luxury Accommodation and of course some Fun!
 We will offer only 8 places to this retreat to insure maximum attention for each participant and an intimate setting.

The experience: 


Psilocybin, Kambo and Shamanic Rapé snuff are the Entheogens we will work with during this retreat. Psilocybin is the substance found in magic mushrooms and truffles that has been proven to be an excellent tool to cure depression and anxiety. Kambo is a frog poison used by indigenous cultures of the Amazon to cleanse the physical body and release stuck emotions. Rapé snuff is known to move energy and bring emotions into flow. 


During this retreat you will learn how to work with entheogens in such a way that you can have access to the parts of your subconscious mind which hold the answers that you need. Through this you will learn self-trust, intuitive knowing and an understanding for why your life has been the way it has been.


You will learn how to move forward in your life. This retreat is not a “pause” on your regular life, providing enough of a break to sustain you to go back to your old ways, allowing you to temporarily “cope” again . This retreat is “A SHIFT”. It is an opening to discover why you are stuck and discover how to create movement to carry you forward because going backwards … is no longer an option.


During this week you will learn the strength in vulnerability, the power of vulnerability and the joy, relief and freedom you can receive through your own expression of vulnerability. Allow us to support you, hold you and to create a safe space of authenticity together where we can cry, laugh, scream, rage, release our pain, our fears, our shame and our beauty in absolute safety and celebration.

 Why work with ENTHEOGENS?
 Entheogens are psychoactive substances that induce a spiritual experience. They offer opportunities that go beyond what is offered in spiritual traditions or psychotherapy sessions. They bring us into non-ordinary states of consciousness and help us to unfold our personality. Insights that may take years for people to achieve through meditation and learning, if they even arise at all, can be revealed within moments during an experience with entheogens. Even so-called “bad trips” and breakdowns can be turned into a process of moving through the pain into the direction of release, liberation and awakening. A journey deep into the unconscious, with the right guidance, preparation and integration not only offers highly therapeutic benefits, it also moves further into the spiritual spheres of the transcendence of the self and toward the formation of a whole new life!
 More Info:

Alice and Kerrie created a powerful space for me to open up and heal. During my journey Alice held the space by assuring me that I was completely free to do what I needed to do. At the same time she was making sure my body was safe physically and getting what it needed. This made me feel safe to be my authentic self. Kerrie was my emotional guide. Part of the time while I was on the substance I felt painful emotions arising. Kerrie picked up on this and she guided me through the pain. She offered me presence and compassion that was able to help me heal deep layers of pain and shame I had been carrying. After we got through the painful emotions I was able to feel myself as open and from there I continued to have an amazing experience in the light. The time I had working with Kerrie and Alice continues offering me healing in my daily life. I highly recommend working with them if you want to expand your consciousness, heal emotionally, and awaken beautiful parts of yourself. Marcellus Davis, USA

Venue Highlights

The Shift Retreat will take place in The Netherlands where Psilocybin truffles are legal. We have chosen one of the countries most beautiful spots: Friesland. Only a 2 hour train ride away from Amsterdam we find the land of waterways, lakes and canals, beaches, as well as old villages and vast pasturelands. The tranquility that radiates from the breathtaking nature of Friesland will guide us to a place of tranquility within ourselves.

We will arrive in the afternoon, get to know each other, settle in, get cosy, share dinner & our intentions.


After emotional connection exercises in the morning that create an atmosphere of intimacy and connection, we will start our retreat with a Kambo & Rapé Snuff Ceremony to cleanse our physical bodies, bring our emotions into flow and release resistance to our fears.


Our first Psilocybin Ceremony is about diving into our pain and looking into the eyes of our fears and unknown patterns. We will discover that underneath layers of pain and fears we find an inner child who needs our attention, support and care and we will create space to meet this child's previously unmet needs

* Note: You are also encouraged to come with your own personal intentions to both ceremonies which we can assist you to find clarity on if needed.


Using tools such as Parts-Work, The Completion Process, Sharing Circles and more we will help you to integrate the insights gained from our entheogenic experiences of the past two days into your daily lives.


This Psilocybin Ceremony is about meeting your inner beauty. What do you need to create a healthy relationship with yourself and how can you trust connection to others?

* Note: You are also encouraged to come with your own personal intentions to both ceremonies which we can assist you to find clarity on if needed.


On Day 6 we will focus on combining the mystical with the practical by breaking down the wisdom you received in a understandable and relatable way. Together we will create individual action plans on how to create the now wanted changes in our daily lives so that our lives feel congruent with our truth.


This day is about meeting our unmet needs for and with each other. It is about learning how to ask for what we need, why it is not only okay but important to have needs and to express them.

The retreat will end here after a shared lunch.
