What Can I Expect From Atman Retreat?

A comprehensive 4-day experience designed to maximize the benefits of psychedelics
1

Arrive, settle in

We’ll pick you up at the airport and it’s a short drive to the villa. You’ll have time to unpack your bags, settle in, and get a feel for the space. Have a snack, enjoy the ocean view, and start meeting others in your group.

2

Meet & Prepare

Through a combination of novel, fun and intuitive activities, you’ll get to know the facilitators and other members of your group.  You’ll be briefed on what to expect from psilocybin, led through intention setting exercises, and have 1-on-1 check-ins with a facilitator throughout.

3

Experience

Your psilocybin experience takes place the second day of the retreat, in a comfortable indoor setting. The music, space and atmosphere are curated to deepen and enhance the effects of psychedelics. You’ll also have access to outdoor nature and the beach.

4

Integrate

The following day is spent resting, processing, and integrating. Here you’ll be guided through exercises to explore and apply the insights you’ve gained. We’ll do yoga and meditation as a group, and you’ll have time to yourself to read, write, or just enjoy the tropical weather.

5

Depart

On the last day, we’ll take you back to the airport for your flight home. You’ll be provided with a farewell package of integration materials, and you’re invited to stay in touch with your group members online. A facilitator will check in with you on a follow up call about a week after your retreat.
