About This Event

Take Psilocybin with trained trauma integration therapists.

IF YOUR LIFE ISN’T IMPROVING, YOU’RE JUST TAKING DRUGS

We love this quote, Why? Because it encapsulates the exact difference between taking drugs to get high and having a conscious drug experience. Most people aren’t exactly sure HOW to create this difference for themselves and that’s perfectly ok. This is where we, as Trauma Integration Practitioners can alter your experience from a fun and interesting but non-eventful trip to a heart-opening meeting of the self that will shift your life and way of being around.

If you want to get crazy, focus solely on seeing colours and shapes and/or trip out to music without looking at yourself, we are not the right guides for you.

If, however, you wish to:

Receive information about the unanswered questions circling around your head

Connect to your inner child, become your higher self or future self and experience giving yourself all the knowledge needed to move forward in life

Meet the aspects of yourself that you have buried or don’t even realise you’ve forgotten

Then look no further, we are the right guides for you. Book a Legal Psilocybin Therapy Session in Amsterdam, Maastricht or Den Haag today.

WHAT IS PSILOCYBIN? WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Psilocybin or its derivative psilocin are both a naturally occurring psychedelic compound found in more than 180 species of hallucinogenic mushrooms and truffles all around the world.

For thousands of years psilocybin mushrooms have been used in religious and shamanic ceremonies in many different cultures around the world. Nowadays psilocybin has shown to be one of the most effective therapeutic assistants for the treatment of depression, cluster headaches, obsessive-compulsive disorders, PTSD, anxiety, as well as addiction.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Many entheogenic voyagers have their trip assisted by a traditional trip sitter, whose role is to act as an anchor and resting place as well as providing physical safety throughout the experience. We believe this is incredibly helpful, however we take this to another level. We will lead you through your subconscious mind using your intention as a compass. Using our intuition and experience, we will ask you the right questions at the right time to guide you deeply into a place of clarity and fulfilment.

With profound trust in your own inner wisdom, we do not provide the answers for you but rather lead you to a place in which you can find them within yourself. Even if you find it difficult right now to believe that you hold this wisdom and clarity within you, fear not, we are fully confident and experienced in guiding you there.

When needed, we will help you to embrace difficult moments and surrender to uncomfortable emotions, teaching you how to work with your resistance instead of it working against you so that even what could be a frightening trip can transform into an experience of awareness and bliss.

Most entheogens potentially bring traumatic memories or repressed emotions to the surface, which is one of the reasons why they are such an incredible aid. When this happens, we will not only hold space for you, carry you through the experience and make you feel safe but may also take on the role of a mother for example or family member or being. This gives you the missing experience from your childhood which caused an aspect of your to remain stuck in a place of intense emotions.

By re-experiencing the painful moment but in this case having your needs met, you will be able to “complete” the experience by moving through and letting go of the unprocessed emotions, reconnecting to the fragmented aspects of yourself, therefore creating wholeness within, allowing you to move forward in life.

If you are fearful of a “bad” or “frightening” trip, rest assured we can guide you through such challenges as they arise leading you to a highly spiritual, liberating and transformative experience.

We use the following different tools to guide you into liberation and release:

Music

Constellation Work

Parts Work

Breath Work

Somatic Therapy

Soul Retrieval

EVEN MORE IMPORTANT THAN THESE TOOLS IS OUR TRUST IN YOUR OWN INNER HEALER. WITH THIS TRUST WE HELP YOU TO LEAD YOURSELF OUT OF RESISTANCE INTO FLOW… OUT OF SUFFERING INTO SURRENDER.

WHERE AND HOW?

We work in Amsterdam, Maastricht or Den Haag in the Netherlands, where Psilocybin is legal in the form of truffles. We organise group as well as private ceremonies. We also travel to places where these substances are legal by request.

A Private Psilocybin Therapy Session includes a preparatory session (this can take place via Skype) to get to know you, discuss your dosage and to help you to get clear on your intention. You will have your own private trauma integration facilitator staying present with you for full 6 hours to assist you on your journey within.

We ask you not to plan anything afterwards but just to be with yourself fully for the rest of the day until you go to sleep. Or have a supportive friend or partner with you.

After your Psilocybin Experience you can choose to have one or several integration sessions (in person or online) on the following day and/or in the days/weeks following your Psilocybin experience.

HOW TO PREPARE?

There is no special diet needed to participate in a Psilocybin Therapy Session, but we recommend vegan food prior to the session to cleanse your body energetically. We ask you to come to the ceremony with an empty but not starving stomach (no food 3 hours before the session starts). Please come with an intention.

My experience with A Whole New High was simply one of the most profound experiences I’ve ever had. When it comes to doing psilocybin on your own vs guided, it’s not even a comparison! It truly changes everything. James Dang

You will book your own accommodation in Maastricht, Amsterdam or Den Haag (as you prefer) and we will come to your accommodation. The advantage with having the ceremony at your airbnb or other accommodation is that you will not have to move after the session is over, when you have come down from the Psilocybin. You will still feel quiet sensitive after the 5-7 hour session and a walk through the city may feel overwhelming.

      The Road Less Travelled

    Ah I know, I am stealing the title, but its the first self help book I ever read and to this date the most significant. And, I love the profound insight of the opening paragraph. "Life is Difficult" :o) My experience working with Kerrie holds the same significance. I was drawn to "The Shift" just as I was drawn to that book, just as I was drawn to Suan Mokh in Thailand, just as I was drawn to travel a road less travelled ever since I was a young man. Safe, educated, well prepared and equally important; a potential of a shift guided by someone who is walking and experiencing the very same path first hand. Opening a heart that wants to remain firmly locked to protect itself through a combination lock where even the owner does not have the key or the code, with the prospect of never being able to even peak in, is a lot to ask and hope for. However, it happened right there. It blew me away, and it still does. Being in the heart and holding it without prejudice, with a presence not through the head, but trough an encompassing connection to another spiritual plane is a gift more than its a shift. Having had a chance to get a glimpse of that, and to realise that, surely does nudge the shift, but most of all it just stays as a key to my own humanity and worthiness. For that I am thankful.

      Holding Space with Grace

    There are certain steps one takes that seem to have an intent nudged by an invisible hand yet maybe without a clear purpose. Not knowing the direction, the map of the territory, the directions of the compass, or even lost sight of the horizon. However, knowing deeply that this is a step in the right direction one continues with the journey. At a cross road Alice shows up. Like a spirit bird blowing out the very bubble that nurses, protects and encourages the step. Doing that with a wafer thin yet rock solid presence holding space to let what may unfold unfold on its own premise, from its own origin and to its next destination. Masterful.

      Top notch retreat with a wonderful & talented guide

    Last year my partner and I decided to visit Netherlands to continue our spiritual journey with plant medicines. We spent quite a bit of time researching the right private retreat and guide to facilitate our journey, which led us to Alice – an incredible teacher and guide with huge depth of wisdom and experience. Throughout our time together Alice's gentle nature and softly spoken confidence filled us with a real feeling of warmth, calm and safety – something which is SO important when you're doing deep and often challenging work on yourself. She was so knowledgeable about the different plants and preparations, while also being an extremely adept guide through the difficult and complex psychological, emotional and physical aspects our our experiences. Everything about our week with Alice was first class, all the way down to the Peruvian rattle dances and stunning musical curation (a lot of which I'm still listening to a year later). Alice is a caring, talented, knowledgeable and all-round beautiful human, and I couldn't recommend her and her services more highly.

      Alice's presence

    I thought I knew the power of psychotropic medicine and the realms it can take me until the day Alice guided me on a journey that I can possibly describe as the most meaningful and beautiful encounter with myself, my inner children and what I suddenly remembered as my past and my truth, that I’ve ever had. I thought that I knew my past. It is incredible how her unconditional trust and presence and questions at the right time took me on a journey that allowed me to rediscover my truth. Alice’s presence allowed me to feel safe with my self and my emotions. I felt so validated for who I am. I didn’t feel any shame in expressing my deepest emotions. That alone was so healing. Alice’s presence was so nourishing and encouraged me to face shit I would have never wanted to face otherwise. Not being on my own, feeling the unconditional presence of her heart made me trust my emotions. Alice guided me into a space of “knowing my self” where I could finally find ground underneath my feet and find “my inner guide” … It was the first time in my life I could see that it’s true, our emotions are literally a guidance system, not less connected to our higher self than any other part of us, if integrated. Alice is a wonderful guide. You know if someone is a good guide if she guides you into a space where finding your truth leads to so much empowerment that you don’t long for guidance no more.

      What a breakthrough

    For some years I held an unexpressed judgment inside of me, about my seemingly unacceptable desires and I was convinced that everyone else would judge me and reject me, the same way I was judging myself. When I was ready and worked with Alice for her assistance I still felt slightly scarred, but I eventually opened up enough to trust her. When I allowed her to see me in this place, I never wanted to be seen in, what happened was truly amazing. She did not judge me and I felt held in an authentic and compassionate space. What I love about Alice is that her wisdom comes from the heart and her own life experience. She is humble and intuitive, with a sense of humour and childlike curiosity. When I realized that she didn’t judge me, a chain reaction started and I had to acknowledge that it’s possible to look at my feelings from a non-judgmental perspective, which then led me to forgive myself and being able to laugh again. What a breakthrough! Thank you Alice.

      highly recommended

    Kerrie O’ Reilly is a fantastic listener. The depth of her understanding goes further than the mere concept of your words uttered – she perceives the message behind your words and especially behind the facades you might build up for your defense subconsciously. With soft but firm care she then directs your attention upon the questions, you should be asked, be it by yourself or by her supporting you. So pretty fast there comes up a topic, that is the center of your actual inability to gain a new perspective to change. In this moment she takes you carefully on an inner imaginary journey to let you develop an environment in which you adjust the components met there for the better. The destination is more self awareness in feeling and thought, relief and healing. With new insight gained you literally feel the change physically, coming out of this process. My own individual experience, being facilitated by Kerrie, was very intense and opened up a new quality of perceiving my reality – a precious gift to keep in my heart. I highly recommend her as a companion and excellent facilitator of your trip experience, who holds the space for you to find your truth within you.

      peaceful presence

    What was great about Alice’s presence is that each time I looked up from being engrossed in myself on my solo-journey, Alice’s soft attention was on me. Whenever I ’emerged’, I emerged to full attention and a peaceful presence. Knowing everything was right in the room and I was being cared for, allowed me to go wherever I needed to go inside my own experience. I particularly value her honouring the wisdom of my own process, supporting it but letting it unfold on it’s own. The integration call afterwards was also tremendously valuable. It helped me connect back to the rest of the world and my life, afterwards.

      An absolute gift

    I felt safe working with Alice. She provided an environment that promoted healing, where I could go into my deepest, darkest shadows and know I would be held. The results I have had after working with her have been completely liberating. During one of my sessions with her, I went into the shame that I had been storing in my thighs my entire life. Since I was a young girl I have hated my thighs, it has always been my “problem area” and despite being thin, eating well, and exercising religiously I could never change my thighs. After this session my entire perspective on my thighs changed. For the first time in my life I could look in a mirror and not pick a part that part of my body. This has not only changed how I think about them they have actually changed shape. I fit in a jean size I have never worn before and I cant attribute this to any other change in my life. To have such a drastic result that has lasted with no conscious effort on my part is a priceless gift. It is because Alice and the medicine she uses allows you to get to the roots of the issues held deep within the subconscious mind. Working with her is a gift I hope to do again and I would recommend her to anyone.

      Rebirth

    Being guided by Kerrie has opened my heart to understanding so many things about myself. I felt a sense of rebirth, a second chance in life, a different lenses my eyes can look out of. Each and every single session we did together brought me so much power back into my soul, waking it up, and filling myself up with so much love and appreciation. I no longer feel “broken” or as if I need “fixing” to do. Yes, there are many parts of me that I need to heal, many emotions that I have buried so deep inside myself (causing so much discomfort and illness) that I need to process and release from within. The journey we took was honestly a very challenging journey. There were many parts where I became very uncomfortable, full of painful emotions that came up, coldness, loneliness, sadness… but every time I needed a break, I would see Kerrie… her gentle voice, full of love, made me feel so safe and nurtured. She then would gently guide me back in our journey where I would continue exploring my emotions knowing that if I ever needed anything, Kerrie would be right there for me. Each time we worked together, I would feel much more empowered, courageous to feel my feelings, to stand up for my inner child, to listen and follow with my heart, to understand myself in such deeper ways than I could ever imagine. On our last session, my husband and I had a combined session together. This was the most powerful and loving session we could ever do as a couple. I have never feel more in love, more understanding, more compassion than I do now since that day. The journeys that we took in the 4 short days together does not fade… the things that I have came to realize and understand only strengthens as the day passes. I can honestly say that I am no longer that version of woman that I was before I met Kerrie. Like I stated before, I feel that Kerrie has given me a second chance at living this life, a life where I can finally see the beauty in my emotions, in healing my inner child, in showing up for myself, in which my body will be able to finally heal.

      Highly Positive Experience

    In my early 20’s I had some highly positive lsd experiences and now in my 60’s I wanted to reboot my mind and recapture some of that sense of wonder again. After hearing about the great results at John Hopkins, I felt that the best experience had to be with a legal guide, as I did not feel that having done it before would help and I did not want anything to go wrong. The experience and preparation around it with Kerrie could not have been better. I wont go into my trip detail but I will say that I walked out of there on air with a feeling that transcends euphoria because it is a real oneness – a deep connection with the universe. Right up there with the births of my children. 4 months later I am still aware of positive benefits in my life outlook and have found daily meditation easy and natural [never did before] and helps me retain those feelings and benefits. I now realize how much a guide such as Kerrie can add: Simply, I have not met anyone else so completely present, highly intelligent and focused and always in the moment in the preparation and integration sessions. I also appreciated that while the ‘ceremony’ was venerated there was no hippie mumbo-jumbo that was present in all Michael Pollan’s US trips.

      Life Changing Experience!

    My experience with Alice was simply one of the most profound experiences I’ve ever had. Alice is probably the most gentle and patient soul I’ve ever met. When it comes to doing psilocybin on your own vs guided, it’s not even a comparison! It truly changes everything and you really want someone like Alice to be there because there WILL be things that come up that you might not expect. The wisdom from the psilocybin will bring up, from our experiences, things that you need to be shown vs what you want to be shown. It could be something you’ve regretted not doing, an instance in your past that you never truly processed, one event that molded you unknowingly your entire life that you thought was you but was actually just an event in time that became you or like for me a trauma that I thought I got over but the child in me never did. Alice + Kerrie have traveled the world so their knowledge and wisdom truly come out. Their work with your “inner child” is also something I’ve never experienced before which was so amazing for me but I won’t spoil that for you. If you’ve read Michael Pollan’s groundbreaking book How to Change Your Mind, you’ll know that most people will say just ONE guided experience with psilocybin can replace or is comparable to 10+ years of psychotherapy. Well that statement is 100% accurate. Don’t do it on your own because you won’t even come close to getting what you want out of the experience. My wife is already booked for another retreat with Alice + Kerrie (which she would NEVER have traveled on her own to another country before this) and we are both booked for another trip 4 months from now as well. It’s THAT profound. Stop searching. You’ve found your healers. Stop the excuses and travel to Amsterdam. It will change your life.

      Insightful and releasing

    Sanne‘s presence made me feel very safe through the whole experience. She is very understanding and compassionate. I got a big change and opening on my perspectives and Sanne gave me very helpful tools during the integration session to explore further. I‘m super grateful for this experience!

  • AT   February 17, 2020

      Compassionate and Kind

    Sanne is a terrific guide full of kindness, love and compassion. She has tremendous knowledge of how trauma affects us now, how it lives in our bodies, and how we can move through it. She’s also very professional: she answered all questions that both myself and my girlfriend had, she is very punctual, and very understanding to one’s needs and concerns. With her as my guide, I was fully able to reach the intentions (break through/disarm my defense mechanisms and get in touch with my younger self) I had set out for both of my ceremonies. The experience itself was extremely intense, but Sanne was there every step of the way to talk to me, comfort me, soothe me and make me feel safe and supported the entire time. I am truly grateful I had this experience with Sanne by my side and could not imagine doing it with anyone else. I could not recommend Sanne enough. She is a wonderful person and guide. Thank you Sanne.

      Emotional release

    An extraordinary experience with an expert guide. This involved two sessions, the first 4.5g with full ego dissolution and lots of emotion. This is the key as our fears appear to get trapped within our ego (the ego is developed from 3-5 years of age as a unit of measure, or standard, used in differentiating time which is necessary for concept-formation, i.e., thinking). The second of 4.0g was more pleasant, with lots of flow. Sanne's guidance was invaluable...she is a great guide and special person, and made the experience life-changing and safe. Thanks Sanne!

      Wonderfully Healing Experience

    Sanne led me on my first psilocybin journey. She was very knowledgeable and comforting which resulted in me being less anxious as I went into the experience. During the journey, she was the perfect amount of present when I needed her to be but not intrusive during the times when I wanted to remain internally focused. She was very compassionate and caring. I felt safe and taken care of during the experience. I can’t say enough good things about her and about the psilocybin itself. I have been in psychotherapy for three years and the amount of healing that took place during this one experience probably equates to about 2 years of consistent psychotherapy. Although the experience was at times upsetting and sad (as I expected it to be because my intention was to work on past trauma), the healing felt very gentle at the same time. I would recommend this experience to anyone wanting to heal from the past or wanting to grow emotionally, spiritually or creatively.

  • Tess   January 10, 2020

      A wonderful, impactful experience

    I had such an impactful experience guided by Sanne. She was open and informative beforehand and made me feel comfortable sharing my intention. During the experience, I felt so comfortable knowing that she was there - she has a wise, calming, warm presence that put me at ease. Afterwards, during the integration session, she held space for me to share my entire journey adding insightful thoughts on my experience. I highly recommend working with Sanne - she is wonderful.

  • Friederike Peters   December 23, 2019

      Safe and reliable

    I had the privilege of being in Sanne's hands for the first psilocybin experience of my life. I felt very safe. Sanne was present all throughout the ceremony, which lasted several hours, and she was immediately there with guidance when I needed it. I am very grateful for this experience and grateful I was in such good hands. I recommend Sanne highly. Blessings from Germany, Friederike

  • Kathy Dennison   December 17, 2019

      Full of compassion

    My daughter and I were led by Sanne for a psilocybin trip last month and we both felt lucky that Sanne was our guide. She is knowledgeable, thoughtful, calm and loving and we felt confident in her capabilities and experience which enabled us to relax and let go. Sanne has a soothing presence and is full of compassion and love. We highly recommend her.

  • LT   December 14, 2019

      A true guide

    One of our greatest concerns before beginning this journey was whether we would be in the hands of a trusted guide. Sanne was a true guide in every sense of the word. She was empathetic and understanding. She adapted to our needs when they changed and guided us through experiences that, in the wrong hands, could have been quite frightening. Instead she gave us the insight to understand and even accept what was frightening which opened up doors that lead to places of total awareness. Sanne was an integral part of this experience and when the way was unclear she seemed to know exactly what to do. Most of all, she made the experience what we needed and not what we wanted. In the moment this wasn't always clear but by the end it was obvious. There are no words that can fully express the depths of gratitude we feel for her participation and guidance throughout this journey. At times we even were consciously aware of our gratitude and even thanked her (often through tears) during the journey. She was the Beatrice in a Divine Comedy we will never forget.
