Like most things in life, there are a broad variety of Psilocybin retreat options, and a number of factors that effect the safety, quality, and cost of an psilocybin retreat:
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 anxiety, combating alcoholism, and even easing the psychological stress of sick cancer patients. Apart from healing, psilocybin has many other benefits.
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 sessions, and breath work already, plant medicine is the next step if nothing seems to be working. Psychedelic therapy sessions using psilocybin mushrooms, 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 luxury psilocybin 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.
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.
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 luxury 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.
