Synthesis is committed to science-based data and contributing to research. To date we’ve collaborated with The Psychedelic Research Group of Imperial College London in a pilot study where it was revealed that the largest contributors to a transformational psychedelic journey are sense of safety, quality of intention, the absence of escapist behaviors and distractions, and the feeling of community - all important aspects that we safeguard. By participating in a Synthesis program, you get the opportunity to contribute to pioneering science.
Throughout the psychedelic supported retreat, we cater to your individual needs by offering specialized workshops and one-on-one consultations with our professional facilitators to ensure you are adequately prepared and equipped to process your experience.
Our Health Screening Questionnaire is designed to prioritize your safety. Plus, we have experienced practitioners leading all retreat activities to ensure you are well-supported.
Our programs include pre-retreat preparation and post-retreat integration. Preparation is key for maximizing the potential of a beneficial psychedelic experience and integration is important for prolonging the benefits. We are dedicated to ensuring that our participants understand the unique ways that truffles containing psilocybin can aid in growth and expansion.
The psychedelic supported ceremonies are designed to reduce any anxiety or nervousness you might feel. From the sound experience to personalized care, every element is planned to ensure your optimal mindset and comfort is prioritized.
You will receive lifetime access to our alumni community as part of your retreat commitment. This ever-evolving community offers access to professional support and networking as you continue the process of your own psychedelic journey and personal development.
While the ever-changing COVID-19 global health impacts and travel restrictions in the Netherlands have impacted our retreat operations for the last two years, we are planning to resume operations in June 2022 and working to add additional program dates to our event calendar as they become available.
We encourage you to check back regularly to see if additional dates have been added and look forward to guiding you through a psychedelic supported program soon.
