Begin Your Journey

What to look for in a Psilocybin retreat?

Like most things in life, there a broad variety of Ayahuasca retreat options, and a number of factors that effect the quality and cost of an ayahuasca retreat that you may like to take into consideration:

  • Safety: Many smaller operators are not in a position to invest in safety, and unfortunately, there are too many sad stories out there. (recommendation: choose a retreat that does in-depth screening to ensure your physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being).
  • Legality:  Practitioners who have dedicated their lives to medicine work typically live in locations where it is legal, so they don't have to live in a state of "what if". (recommendation: consider whether travelling to a place with "new energy" might be in your best interests).
  • Size of the group: It's common for retreats to have 20, 50, even 100 people in ceremony, which can be chaotic. Additionally, you are less likely receive the level of attention from healers that you are probably looking for. (recommendation: choose a retreat with an intimate group of say, 8-15 people).
  • Length of the retreat: Shorter retreats feel rushed, and there are limits to what can be done in a few nights. (recommendation: go for at least a week).
  • Comfort: (recommendation: spend a little extra for something where you will be physically comfortable and have your own bedroom to decompress and integrate, especially if this is your first time). Your future self can thank us later.
  • Cosmology: (recommendation: choose a retreat that supports your own subjective experience, or one that you feel aligns with you energetically). The energy of the retreat and ceremony leaders will have a profound effect upon your experience.
  • Holistic approach: (recommendation: work with an organization that takes a holistic approach to working with medicine, and has options to support and guide your mental and emotional evolution). If a provider implies that "medicine will solve all your problems", proceed with caution (because it won't!).
  • Service: (recommendation: choose a place that you believe can serve your individual needs. Consider whether or not they've taken the time to get to know you and understand you, or it's more of a take it or leave it retreat center).
  • Booking process: (recommendation: speak with the provider before finalizing your booking). If it's all online, ANYONE could be sitting next to you in ceremony.
  • Expertise: (recommendation: work with an organization that emphasizes healing, and you believe has a breadth of expertise to guide your transformation). Look for facilitators and healers who have a lightness of being and a sparkle in their eyes.
  • Reputation: (recommendation: Google the provider). You may be surprised by what you find. If there's not much information, that is also information :)
  • Volunteers: (recommendation: work with an organization that pays their staff). Unfortunately, it is common practice for retreat centers to cycle through young, eager, and worn out volunteers and/or not pay healers fairly. If the people supporting your retreat aren't living their best life, they're not going to be able to lead you to yours.

Given the potential, power, and sensitivity of working with Ayahuasca, who you choose to work with is undoubtedly one of the most important decisions of your life, so we encourage you to take the time and the energy to educate yourself to be able to make a good one. If you're in a position to do so, you may also like to consider a private retreat.

If our recommendations above feel energetically aligned for you, and you'd like to explore a journey with Behold, apply below.

Top 10 Psilocybin Retreats

Psilocybin alters perception of self, time, and space. When used in ceremony and ritual under proper guidance it is one of the ultimate tools of transformation and spiritual growth.  The medical benefits are supported by recent science. Many studies show a decrease in depression, combating alcoholism, and even easing the psychological stress of sick cancer patients. Apart from healing, psilocybin has many other benefits.

  • Access to higher consciousness beyond the egoic mind
  • Releasing low vibrational emotions such as guilt, shame, and anger
  • Mental health increase through awareness
  • Tapping into compassion and forgiveness
  • Strengthens self love and better human relationships
  • Mystical experiences such as oneness and universal love
  • Heightens perception 

The importance of retreat

In a controlled environment with intention, from the way space is held, to the energetics of the healer, and the heart opening in ritual, this is a very different process than taking mushrooms at a party. There is a focus on healing and self betterment rather than sheer enjoyment. People want to better themselves, and for those who have done yoga, meditation, therapy, and breath work already, plant medicine is the next step if nothing seems to be working.  Psychedelic therapy using psilocybin, ayahuasca, san pedro, and other plant medicines are growing in popularity. It is in your best interest to choose the retreat center wisely.

The retreat center matters because every detail, from the preparation  process, to the land the ceremony is on, to the mental clarity of the other guests, all affects the ceremony. It is important to go on this spiritual journey in whatever way makes you feel most safe and confident. 

The abundance of options often makes the process of choosing a retreat stressful or confusing. We are here to provide you with knowledge so you can make an informed decision. Apart from taking plant medicine, choosing a high quality retreat will be one of the biggest decisions you can make. Use your intuition and do the proper due diligence and research. 

Let your inner compass guide you after you have investigated your options. Talk directly to the retreat's support team about any questions and do ask for client testimonials after reading the reviews online. 

Things to consider when choosing a retreat

  • Would you prefer to be with a small group, or alone?
  • To save money do you want to be a part of a large group of 12+, or do you desire something more intimate?
  • Do you want to do deep work and go on a private retreat with undivided attention?
  • Do you need follow up support after your retreat and integration work?
  • How important is it for you to have coaches and therapists to help with emotional processing?
  • Where in the world do you want to be? What location serves you?
  • Do you want simplicity, a small cabin in the forest or high end luxury?
  • How much time do you have to dedicate? 3 days or 3 weeks? 

There are many factors to consider when choosing, and the more clarity you can get, the better the choice you will make. Ask yourself what you really need for the fullness of experience, and work with a retreat that aligns with these needs.

Legality

Good retreat centers will not do underground work, as it can be dangerous and create paranoia in guests. It is important to feel completely safe to participate in psilocybin ceremonies in locations that have decriminalized it. Many of the best retreats for this reason, are not in the United States as psilocybin is considered illegal under federal law and a Schedule I controlled substance. Psychoactive's are looked at skeptically by many government structures, but as time has gone on and the amount of research has increased, perceptions are changing.  

In a few states such as Oregon, Colorado and California, they have been decriminalized for personal use with no intent to sell them. This means that scientific researchers and doctors can now readily study the medicinal and therapeutic benefits of psilocybin, especially in Oregon where it is legalized. The legal landscape continues to shift with time and growing public knowledge on the power of plant medicines. 

Globally, some of the most relaxed progressive countries for partaking in psilocybin retreats are  Portugal, The Netherlands, Mexico and Costa Rica where it is decriminalized. Because of legal gray areas, Behold retreats will only conduct ceremonies in places where there is no risk with the law. To have our clients feel completely safe and confident, we choose locations where plant medicine is welcome. This is why many of the best retreats will be outside of the states. Traveling outside of home allows for a fresh perspective to ground into the new you.
