As soon as I arrived I felt held by John and the team. I also felt totally safe and trusting of their expertise, experience and guidance. They quickly forged a gentle bond in our group and allowed space for us all to build our own individual journeys. The ceremony and the hard work New Moon put in to the retreat means that this process meets you where you are at. I left feeling huge shifts at a conscious and a cellular level in my body. I’m just so grateful for the kindness the team exhibited; the patience and time. It’s taught me so much and augmented my personal growth in a way I never knew would be possible. I’m not sure what I expected before I went, but I don’t think I expected to feel so fondly and cherish the memories I’ve built with New Moon.

My experience at New Moon was profound. In my opinion, if you want a moderate experience, I would say do a 20g dose of magic truffles. If you want a deep experience, a 40g dose would be the best option, especially if you plan on doing 1 psilocybin session. The boosters they give you during the session are useful, but from my experience, the best thing to do is to pick an option(moderate or deep) and trust the medicine.

The retreat was transformational-and this is a term I rarely use! I recommend the book "How to change your mind" by Michael Pollan to understand the science of psychedelics and the importance of preparing and evaluating beforehand. New Moon did a wonderful job from prior to arrival to follow up after the retreat. Thankfully, New Moon chose the Netherlands where this type of retreat where it is legal, and showed discreteness for those who might be concerned. The set, setting, intention and integration were are crucially important for this type of experience, and New Moon chose wisely. I felt safe and secure the entire time as did the other retreat guests who attended. The facilitators were all experienced while truly caring and concerned about the guests who attending. I would recommend this to any persons who are even inquisitive, and I have told others the same. After the retreat, I knew I had chosen wisely in New Moon. I look forward to attending further retreats with New Moon. My review is done without any financial consideration or renumeration from New Moon for my testimonial.

A safe and welcoming place to expore psilocybin. All the faciliitors were caring and supportive and have their all to assist participants on their journey. The retreat facility is excellent and the food was really wonderful. I would recommend New Moon to anyone interested in exploring psyedelics.

I could not have been in better hands for my very first psychedelic encounter. New Moon's guides have many years' experience of the benefits psychedelics can bring when taken with well thought out and constructive intentions. The retreat provided a safe space to facilitate just such an approach. I felt totally secure at all times. One aspect that I felt was handled especially well was the group dynamic. We arrived as a bunch of strangers with only our curiosity about psychedelics in common, but by the time of the ceremony, we were familiar enough with each other to form a cohesive and supportive group. The location could not be bettered for comfort and the feeling of being in the midst of peaceful nature. Excellent vegetarian meals were shared with gusto, and I found myself appreciating the colours and flavours with particular intensity after taking the psilocybin truffles. The ratio of facilitators to participants is higher than that found in many comparable retreats.

From start to end, the retreat was exactly what I was looking for. The group was small enough to get to know the other participants and the facilitators well. The group work was just right with the opportunity to learn more about myself. The venue is so unique, quirky and earthy I felt relaxed as soon as I arrived. The evening yoga nidra and the morning meditations were just what I needed and really helped me ground myself. The ceremony was perfect, in that we all knew each other enough to understand a bit about our journeys and the support from each of facilitators was perfect in letting us just be ourselves. I felt a connection with everyone over the weekend, and had fun too. There were some beautiful moments during the ceremony especially towards the end when we were all together as a group. The food was delicious, and the whole setup in terms of daily activities was relaxed. Overall it was a beautiful weekend.
