We are excited to announce our second Women’s Leadership Retreat taking place on 25 - 29 September 2019, this programme will offer 16 women the chance to embark on a mythical journey. We believe that true leadership is something that all women can access, with the right tools. During this five-day wellness retreat, you will relax, explore, learn, discover, breathe, heal, recharge and reach a state of alignment with your past, present and future selves, and the world around you.
You will experience the chance to engage your internal senses of connection, embarking on your individual path towards transformation. In a supportive context, in the company of a select group of others who share your desires for greater self-understanding and to progress in life, you will access the benefits of sacred plant medicines, with a cacao ceremony and two psilocybin ceremonies. Surrounding these experiences, you will be given specialized guidance, to help you begin mind-manifesting clear pathways towards your personal and emotional goals.
Leadership can take many different forms. You can, for example, demonstrate, and/or wish to develop, qualities that allow you to take the lead in:
- Your individual stance and self-development, asserting your mastery over long-held hang-ups that are holding you back
- Professional life and career progression
- Friendships and social situations
- Romantic relationships
- Parenting or co-parenting
- Identifying, and making, your chosen impact
- Interacting with the environment around you as you travel through the phases of your day
I’m not currently in a supervising role, is the Synthesis Women’s Leadership retreat right for me?
Anybody seeking a clearer pathway to peak empowerment will benefit from the bespoke programme designed for our Women’s Leadership retreat. This women’s retreat is designed to offer you the getaway that will help you connect, perhaps for the first time, with the ability to take the lead in your life. This is an innate capability which everyone has within themselves, and which the right tools can help you unlock.
Our women’s retreat is characterized by openness, opportunity, and possibility. As our five-day programme unfolds, you will:
- Tap into your potential to grow emotionally, spiritually and physically, evolving into the healthiest version of yourself
- Move beyond the shackles of limiting self-perceptions and beliefs which no longer serve you, and part ways with your unhelpful inner critic
- Attune your focus to your core needs, accessing the tools you need to manifest them in your lived life
- Harness insights gained from working with ancient plant medicine, and begin to live your truth, learning to carve the right path for you, with ease, through the many spheres that make up the complex life of a 21st-century woman
In all contexts, the ability to take leadership originates when you speak and act from a place of authenticity, driven by true self-knowing and understanding. We see leadership as an intimate decision and relationship that we are in with ourselves first, then with others: this is the Synthesis definition of leadership. During your time at Synthesis, we will help you to divine, identify, and work on the energetic, emotional and psychological blockages that may be holding you back, giving you a head start on the pathway towards your most fulfilled, authentic self.
Could this be the invitation you didn’t know you needed, to leave your internal luggage behind and download a healthier personal story? If you are seeking an opportunity to reconnect with yourself, and reimagine your future, within a safe supportive environment, see ‘Is Synthesis right for you?’, or progress to our application form to begin your transformational journey.
A retreat for women, by women: meet the team
The first of its kind at Synthesis, our Women’s Leadership Retreat, a celebration of the divine feminine, is open to all people who identify as women, and will be led by women with a deep and practical knowledge of shamanism, healing, and empowerment practices. We will prepare you for, guide you through, and help you find frameworks to integrate your experiences with psilocybin, the active component of magic mushrooms and truffles, the psychedelic agent which we use at our retreats.
The Women’s Leadership Retreat will be lead by core members of the Synthesis team: leadership coach and Director of Operations Rachel Aidan, and Lead Facilitator Natasja Pelgrom, with assistance from additional Synthesis staff, who are accomplished practitioners of specialized skills, including psychedelic ceremony orchestration and breathwork.

What’s involved? Activities to activate your conscious awakening
Our spiritually focussed programme is designed to help you leave behind the demands of the multiple roles you perform in your private and professional life, each of which can cause you to develop coping mechanisms which serve to distract you from your core being and true purpose.
