EARTH AWARENESS RETREAT CENTER
The centre has facilitated ceremonies for thousands of people since 2006, collaborating with keepers of ancestral knowledge. We have integrated several shamanic traditions and blended it with our own European roots. We have used this experience to finetune an authentic balance between indigenous traditions, modern Western culture and scientific knowledge. This gives our organisation a strong foundation of professional standards, safety protocols and ethics. The cornerstone of our retreats is an incredible transdisciplinary team of skilled and experienced facilitators who are there to support.
We are dedicated to provide our guests the opportunity to benefit from the psilocybin’s potential to catalyse a life changing experience. For us it is not a job or a hobby, but a way of life. The main difference between us and most other retreat centres is that we live at this place as well. You really visit us as our personal guest, you are truly involved in our off grid lifestyle and philosophy. You eat the veggies we cultivate, the artwork all around is home-made, so you can experience first-hand how it feels to live in closer connection to nature. Our guests often tell us this element is a contribution to the whole experience and surely a rare thing to find in Western Europe.
Are the general name for mushrooms that contain psilocybin and psilocyn. In the ceremonies we use magic truffles which are non-toxic to the body and completely legal in the Netherlands. Psilocybin mushrooms enlighten the brain, free the mind and activate the waking dream state. They expand consciousness, allowing us to realize the wonder of life. They are a key to the circle of oneness and show us how everything is interconnected and interrelated. We use them to accelerate self-discovery, as a tool for healing and as a visionary vehicle to travel within and beyond.
Is a marking point in time. It is an ancient way of setting the space for conscious transformation, it creates safety and clarity. For thousands of years wisdom-keepers from all over the world are using psychedelics for healing and vision with undeniable results. Here in the West, the spiritual use of these compounds is rather new and is often used in a more therapeutic setting. Although both approaches have their own qualities, we strongly believe that the Western approach only, is not sufficient enough to activate the whole spectrum of potential.
1st Ceremony – The introduction ceremony takes place on the Friday and is meant to cultivate trust and gently sensitize your inner world, sinking into the retreat. During this ceremony all participants take place on a mattress around the fireplace and go into total relaxation, letting go into nothingness. A specially created playlist is supporting this inner journey and allows you to explore the depths of your being. The focus is going within and therefore has minimal group dynamics, a more Western way of doing psychedelics.
2nd Ceremony – This ceremony takes place on the Sunday. In this ceremony there is the possibility to be present, to express, to be alive and really work with the energies that move through you. Although your journey is still a personal one, this ceremony has a higher level of togetherness. During the night the facilitators will balance the energies with a multitude of instruments and their profound musical skills. These ceremonies are dynamic and alive, with beautiful acoustic music, sensitive songs and powerful chants, silence and sincere sharing around the fireplace. We hold space with a clear ceremonial structure that leaves room for a playful, open minded and intuitive course, you are invited to contribute.
Consists of minimum 5 and maximum 12 participants (or less if virus-regulations require it), both male and female and often from different nationalities, therefore we speak English. All participants share more or less the same intention; to create a more rewarding life. People are curious to explore higher consciousness or are seeking a way to enrich and enhance their lives and reconnect with nature. In our modern culture a lot of people are feeling more and more enmeshed in impossible demands, pressure and stress, with a sense of being out of step with their true authentic self. Psilocybin offers a way to find pathways to reconnect. In the trust and safety of the group you find recognition and many times friendships evolve from these shared experiences. The group stimulates you to develop your talents and deal with your challenges. After the magic mushroom ceremony there is space to exchange personal interests with other participants, also there are many spots in our beautiful garden where you can find the silence and peace.
A diverse team of caring and experienced facilitators will be there to make sure that everything is taken care of, before during and after the ceremonies. The Earth Awareness team consists in total of 15 team members; 2 lead facilitators, 8 facilitators, 2 ground facilitators and 3 back office operators. Together we form a solid, enthusiastic and warm hearted team with the common goal to generate awareness from within as a contribution to the health of all.

THE RETREAT PROGRAM We offer a varied and supportive activity-program during the whole retreat. We have set up a balanced program that helps your body, mind and soul to integrate the psilocybin experiences. Every retreat will be slightly different, depending on which facilitators are joining. We offer things like yoga, chi qong, mindfulness and visualization, drum-trance journey, ecstatic dance, teaching on sacred plants, meditation, creativity or breathwork. With these effective tools you are able, also after the retreat when you are at home again, to integrate the changes in your daily life. Of course, if you need space or are not in the mood, you are welcome to withdraw and read a book, chill out or take a walk.
Each participant has a nice and cosy private space at our indoor glamping. A tent where you can stand upright, with a bed, a mattress, sheets/duvet/pillow, a carpet and a night lamp will provide you in your basic needs. The tents have a height of 2.50 m and are 2.50×2.50 m. They are situated on our spacious and light upper atelier. Our accommodation has all benefits of following a natural lifestyle. During the retreat you go back to basic at our off grid centre, you shower in rainwater and you manage without much electricity.
