Retreat Features and Activities

The charming vila Sollewerf in Beekbergen is beautifully situated directly east of the Veluwe. The estate is located on 60,000 m² of nature reserve, with a swimming pond and a wood-fired Hot tub. During your stay you can explore the beautiful nature reserves in the area on foot or by bike. In the surroundings of Beekbergen are vast forests and heathland to find, where in the early morning and evening twilight you have a chance to see red deer, roe deer and wild boar. The house has recently been renovated and is in excellent condition.
Before the retreat we will give you a pre-retreat preparation call (skype or in-person) to get to know each other. Also we we will send you an online preparation guide which summarises the things you need to bring and instructions how you can prepare your mind and body to get the most out of the experience.
On Friday will pick you up at the airport/ train station and drive together to villa sollewerf. We start the day with a sharing circle to get to know each other better and to share our wishes and expectations for the weekend.
During the retreat we will start our days with a nutritious breakfast and some yoga and/or meditation. You can also explore the nature which surrounds the complex. The magic truffles journey will take place in the evening of the second day. Beforehand we will set our intentions and share them with the group. As a group we listen to music together or make music ourselves. Everyone has the opportunity to actively shape this experience. after the magic truffles group ceremony you will be served a delicious homemade dinner.
The following days are reserved for integrating the psilocybin experience. This is of high priority because psychedelic experiences are often highly profound and transformative. For this reason we spend the next days with sharing and discussing what we experienced. We take time to rest our bodies and minds and enjoy the delicious food. There will be a vision boarding session, yin yoga, meditation and also free time in which you can relax in the hot tub or swimming pond. Summarised it will be a full weekend of connecting to others, relaxing and finding yourself.
After you returned home you have the option to participate in an online integration circle. It is not uncommon that integration takes more than a few days and we want to make sure that you have people with whom you can share your process. Also we provide you a private integration-session via Skype or in person.
We provide delicious vegetarian food which is prepared by our private cook. There will be multiple options for breakfast for example freshly pressed juice, smoothies, hot chocolate made of raw cacao, bread, croissants, fruit and vegetable, hummus, spread, guacamole, scrambled eggs, fruit salad and more. For lunch and dinner there will be one vegan meal with multiple side dishes and salads. Our meals are all vegetarian, nutritious and prepared with love. Vegan and gluten-free options are available.
Since this retreat includes a magic truffles journey, you should first consider what effects it will have on you. Magic truffle experiences are often described as being transformative, life changing and healing. Psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic truffles as well as magic mushrooms, has been shown to alleviate certain diseases such as depression, anxiety, and OCD. Furthermore, it has the ability to boost creativity and problem-solving skills.
