2020, Singapore – Behold Retreats, specialists in bespoke entheogen plant medicine journeys, is inviting guests to travel with a purpose and expand their horizons in 2021. Set in the lush tropical jungles of Costa Rica, the Exponential Leaders Retreat is designed to help those in positions of leadership tap into their subconscious to find clarity of purpose, while developing a more intuitive leadership style.

To deliver exponential results in today’s turbulent times, leaders must overcome the analytical mind to release an energized, clear vision. This seven-night immersive retreat has been specially designed to accelerate progression to the exponential through a holistic expert-led program that includes pre-travel education, goal-setting workshops, and plant medicine ceremonies. Behold Retreat’s bespoke programs offer end-to-end support so that guests can reap the full benefits of plant medicine. Solidifying intentions with a coach beforehand is a key part of this process. During the retreat, guests are given the tools for success and taught how to use them; post-retreat they’ll receive continued support and resources to help integrate these learnings into their everyday lives. The result is an extended period of personal growth that will help participants better achieve their goals.

The Exponential Leaders Retreat will be held in Costa Rica’s Gulf of Papagayo. A tropical haven offering mesmerising oceanfront views, it’s an idyllic setting for self-improvement and visualising goals for the year ahead. Guests will stay in single-occupancy bungalows in a sustainable, eco-minded property boasting state-of-the-art architectural design that seamlessly blends indoor with outdoor. During their stay, participants will enjoy three meals a day, daily yoga, meditation or massage sessions, all with the ongoing support of expert guides.  

This particular retreat will focus on entheogen plant medicine – in this case, ayahuasca. Traditionally used for spiritual and religious ceremonies by Amazonian tribes, ayahuasca is a tea-like herbal brew made from indigenous plants. It has proven useful in facilitating heightened self-reflection and producing insightful perspectives*, and is increasingly acknowledged to promote unique benefits such as detoxification, heightened introspection and self-analysis, improved emotional processes, and a sense of purpose. With ayahuasca available during the retreat’s ceremonies, guests will have the opportunity to work towards achieving peak performance and wellbeing.

By promoting neurogenesis – the formation of new neurons and neural connections – plant medicine offers a unique proposition for personal growth. These psychotropic herbs can expand the consciousness, thereby offering a profound opportunity to explore new perspectives. Over the last 20 years, renowned institutions like John Hopkins School of Medicine* and the Imperial College of London have conducted significant research to prove that under therapeutic conditions, plant medicine can safely and effectively treat a number of mental health conditions as well as promote long-lasting psychological growth.

Jonathan de Potter, Founder of Behold Retreats, said: “We are pleased to offer this retreat for those who are ready to look within and explore the self in order to reach a new level of self-actualisation in the new year. To say 2020 has been challenging seems a trite understatement, but with the Exponential Leaders Retreat, we hope to encourage people to take charge of their wellbeing and performance for the year ahead.”

Jonathan, who was formerly a director at Accenture and Country Manager for Capco consulting firm, concludes: “This retreat combines academia, activity, professional guidance, and the considered use of plant medicine so that guests can reach their full leadership potential and seize the opportunities 2021 will offer.”

The Exponential Leaders Retreat is scheduled for the first quarter of 2021, subject to pandemic travel restrictions.
