Emotional scars caused by chronic stress, trauma, and loss can run deep within the body. However, everyone possesses the innate ability to self-heal these wounds.
By utilizing psilocybin, a plant-based medicine, individuals who have undergone trauma and loss can learn to heal themselves in a compassionate and personalized manner, empowering them to transform their lives from within.


The Truffle Medicine Retreat is a 5-day transformative process. Upon arrival Wednesday, we prepare and set intentions on Thursday. Friday’s psilocybin ceremony harmonizes brain activity for new insights and habit changes. Saturday involves integration through meditation, bodywork, and ritual, concluding the retreat on Sunday.

During these five days Anouk Bindels and her team show you the body’s and mind’s incredible power. Psychedelics (psilocybin) allow you to delve deeper into your own trauma, helping you to see your problems from new angles that can offer new truths. Psychedelics have been shown to make people more psychologically flexible – and therefore are especially useful in helping people shift out of the harmful, repetitive thought patterns that are often the hallmark of conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction.
