A ceremonial retreat at retreat center @Hélène in de Bilt (close to Utrecht, the Netherlands)

During these retreats we use plant medicines. These medicines are used with the intention of meeting yourself in an inner journey. It can help you face your problems, gain healing and transformation, let go of old pieces and insights to make new choices in your life. This brings you closer to your true BEING and you can enjoy life more.

The ceremonies are small-scale and Hélène, as a certified facilitator, is a physical and energetic spaceholder. There is loving attention and space for your transformation process and your BEING.

For whom is a ceremonial retreat?

If you are open to personal and spiritual development, you can hear the ‘call’ of plant medicines. Plant medicine trips can be used for mental, emotional and physical complaints, addiction problems, depression, fears, bereavement and post-traumatic stress disorder. The ceremonies give you deepening and reflection, clarity about where you are now in your life and where you want to go. A ceremonial retreat brings you closer to your true self.

When booking, I always contact you by phone first and before the start of the retreat you must fill in an intake form.

We start this retreat with our new workshop and game Unravel-your-story. You gain insight into the stories you tell yourself and how they affected your life. With the new perspective and the tools, you learn you can make new choices in life based on how you want to shape your reality.

To gain insights from your subconscious, we make two inner journeys with plant medicines. The first evening of the ceremony we use the properties of Magic Truffles (Psilocybin), the second evening we use homemade Cannabons (raw cocoa and cannabis) in a ceremonial setting. These medicines are used with the intention of meeting yourself in love and getting closer to your true self. During the journey inwards you will become acquainted with the subconscious processes, which can help you with life issues and provide new insights that allow you to enjoy more. Magic truffles is masculine, while cannabis is feminine in energy; both give you an inner journey but are different due to the different energies. This ceremony is for people who are open to spiritual development and awareness and is guided by Hélène.

To strengthen the integration it is wise to give yourself some space and time in the days following the retreat. If you consider staying one additional night in our retreat center, please contact us for the options.
