On the other hand, according to the Opium Act, magic mushrooms are listed as a hard drug. Since December 2008, psilocybin containing mushrooms have been banned after a number of harmful incidents where tourists irresponsibly consumed mushrooms for recreational purposes. This was also in line with the legal status of other European countries. The truffles remained legal given the more predictable potency per portion, compared to the mushrooms, and the negative connotation of a dangerous substance is mainly associated with the magic mushroom’s image.
Leaving the ceremony space is not permitted under any circumstances unless the facilitator agrees it is the right time to do so. It is advised to do your own research and consult with a medical professional to determine if using psilocybin is right for you.
Absolutely. You are encouraged to reach out to us when you feel you are ready to take the first step. You can click here to sign up for a complimentary exploration call to get in touch with our team.
All applications start with a free exploration call, which you can book by clicking here.
During this call, if you’d like to move forward with your application, we can set you up for an official screening. Questionnaires need to be filled in prior to the screening. This one hour screening is meant for us to identify any physical or psychological conditions and/or contraindications that could potentially prevent you from safely engaging with psilocybin. Once the team has reviewed your application, you will be notified of eligibility typically within 3-5 business days. If there are no contraindications and both the team and yourself feel the program is a good fit, you can start preparing for your journey!
Specific psychiatric and/or physical conditions, medications or other conditions may preclude your safe participation in our programs. The full list of safety considerations can be viewed here. Furthermore, the screening does not serve as a medical or therapeutic diagnosis and we are in no position to make medical recommendations given your situation. We do not make any medical or therapeutic claims about our retreats or programs.
All applications begin with a free of charge exploration call, which you can book by clicking here. From there, you can book a screening if this feels like the right fit for you. If eligible, we can begin the planning phase to confirm your program.
For our group retreats we will provide round-trip transportation from and to the nearest international airport on program arrival and departure days.
The integration is a crucial component of how we support you on your journey, with integration sessions taking place the day following the ceremony, along with a follow-up session planned after you return back to your every day environment. Opportunities for 1:1 support during group retreats are provided as needed and additionally, our operations staff and retreat site staff are available on-site 24/7.
We provide you with psychological support throughout your journey, before and after, where education, intention setting and deep integration is key. It also goes without saying that our screening process, which we take seriously, is a strong contributor to the safety standards we strive to uphold.
Much like psilocybin, SSRI and SNRI medications affect the same serotonin 5HT2A receptor in our brain. When taken together, it is unpredictable to determine what the effects psilocybin will have on a person, while most of the time a lesser effect of the psilocybin is reportedly perceived. With that being said, we do not wish it upon anyone to commit to the financial decision of signing up for our programs, if there is a high chance of the results being disappointing due to the suppressing effects of other medications.
