About This Event
We are delighted to invite you to our PSN group retreat. Following the great success of our guided magic truffles one-to-one sessions, we introduce a group setting as an additional possibility to access the power of our science-based approach to psychedelic experience.
Our retreat program combines the specialized expertise of our sitters. The program is a blend of Marta Kaczmarczyk’s knowledge on our cognitive systems (Embodying the Mind (contact info blocked)), Fernando Rodrigues’ understanding of supplemental support (Psyhacked (contact info blocked)), and Patrycja Radecka and Coen de Koning’s therapeutic skills (Therapeutic Sitter Service (contact info blocked)).
Participation fee: 800EUR for three days. Food and accommodation included.
