What to Expect During the Retreat

Find out more

We’ve meticulously crafted a retreat experience to guide you through transformative encounters. From the moment you arrive and find your feet, there’s an unmistakable atmosphere of introspection and community. Mornings typically begin with a grounding meditation and movement practice, ensuring a centred start to your day. Delicious breakfasts fuel you for what lies ahead, whether it’s an intimate small pod session, a powerful group sharing, or engaging in preparatory practices.

The alternation between experience and integration days is deliberate, offering you profound moments of exploration followed by critical reflection and consolidation. On experience days, the energy culminates in a ceremonious circle in the evening, while integration days delve deeper into activities that cultivate understanding and connection, with ample time for nature bonding and personal contemplation.

The culmination of your journey will be marked by a memorable closing ceremony, leaving you with insights, friendships, and moments to cherish. Through this retreat, anticipate a dance of introspection, connection, and celebration.

Your Psychedelic Retreat – The Numinous Approach


With our bespoke psychedelic and wellness retreats, you have the freedom to select the destination, schedule, theme, and psychedelic substance of choice (subject to local laws) that aligns with your aspirations and preferences. Be it a serene country escape, a tranquil coastal setting, or a personal journey within your own living space, we are at your service to craft your ideal escape.

“As a first-timer in the world of psychedelics, I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction. For anyone looking to embark on a spiritual or psychedelic journey, I cannot recommend Numinous Ways enough.”


Double Psychedelic Ceremony


Psychedelic retreats are crafted to emphasise transformative and ethereal encounters, encompassing two psychedelic rituals separated by a profound breath work journey. These methods harmoniously intertwine to nurture deep healing, heightened consciousness, and enlightening realisations.


Breath-Work Session


Beyond the psychedelic ceremonies, an array of meditation sessions are available, crafted to calm and ready you for the ceremonial experiences. We also provide a guided breathwork journey. Using conscious cyclical breathing techniques, you’ll learn to harness mindful rhythmic breathing to access deeper layers of consciousness and healing across the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.

One to One and Group Facilitation and Guidance


Before the start of your journey, you’ll engage in a private discussion with your guide to explore your aspirations and what you anticipate from the retreat. They will carry your intentions at heart throughout the duration, providing gentle direction when necessary. With their support, you’ll be motivated to release control and cultivate a willingness to embrace the revelations of your psychedelic voyage fully.


Post-Retreat Integration and Aftercare


As the retreat journey evolves, numerous moments for introspection will present themselves. These moments will empower you to comprehend and digest the realisations attained during the ceremonies at both emotional and mental depths. Through group conversations, directed meditations, and integration gatherings, you’ll find a nurturing environment to articulate your journeys, gain encouragement, and maximise the impact of your retreat experience.
