Nature Quest retreat – 12- 18th of July 2023

Psilocybin mushrooms open a gateway for connection with spirit and with the natural forces that surround us. The indigenous groups that have been working with these medicines since generations acknowledge and give space to the natural world in their approach to medicine work, opening spaces for prayer and offerings by taking time for contemplation in nature for a given amount of time with limited food, drinks and social contact, a practice known as vision quest.
We are planning to open a retreat based on this approach, for experienced medicine journeyers and people ready to challenge themselves and to go back to the roots. This will be facilitated by an experienced team and will take place on a beautiful piece of land by a river in the mountains of the Serra da Estrela in central Portugal.

What to expect ?
– Be welcomed and held on a secluded piece of land by a pristine river on an off grid project that has held many years of prayer work.
– Camping accomodation during your stay, with loads of extra pillows and blankets to make it cosy and warm !
– Delicious vegetarian buffets twice a day on non questing days, with menus designed to support your entry and exit into the questing process, with local organic homegrown veggies and herbs.
– Support during 2 group mushroom ceremonies led with reverence, care and intention, to dive into the deeper parts of ourselves and awaken our ancient memory, reconnecting with the land.
– 3 days of near fasting (vegetable broth and water) in silence and contemplation, an indigenous practice known as vision quest, to strenghen our bond with nature, our spiritual guidance and our sense of direction in life.
– A small group of 5 brave fellow questers, making this experience very unique and personal
– Support from an experienced team before, throughout and after your stay with us.

Price: 800 euros

Summer Creative retreat: 1- 7th of August 2023

While our main line of work lays in opening therapeutic retreats for those who wish to experience psilocybin mushrooms in a safe context for healing and growth, we also believe in the tremendous potential of these medicine to promote creativity, playfulness and connection to movement and music.

We are collaborating with experienced artists, musicians, dancers and spaceholders in order to create something truly special: A creative retreat where introspective mushroom ceremonies coexist with a rich programme of daily voicework, musical exploration and movement practices. A space to go beyond our limiting beliefs that we are not good enough to express ourselves through art, a space to connect with our bodies in movement, a place to create beauty, individually and collectively.

This retreat will take place in a beautiful natural location in the Serra da Estrela region of Portugal, with gorgeous mountain views and nearby rivers to swim in, a region full of history and a land full of old stones, chestnut trees, andpure mountains streams. Come and join us on this special offering !

What to expect ?
– A week long immersion into a curated programme of daily vocal and somatic creative practices, led by expert professional facilitators, taking us on a journey of reconnection to our creative nature.
– Support before, during and after 2 mushroom ceremonies, facilitated by a strongly experienced team, offered with respect and intention, opening a space for healing and insight, and to foster inspiration for our creative process and give space to self-expression.
– 7 days and 6 nights of accomodation on a secluded historic farmhouse in the mountains, with yurts or tent accomodation options, a rock pool and nearby river to swim in, mountain trails to explore and amazing sunset views !
– 2 abundant and delicious vegetarian buffet meals a day with loads of organic and homegrown veggies, cooked with love by our talented local chef.
