Ciara Sherlock and Stefana Bosse work together facilitating the Experience Weekends. They will give intimate insight into the Psychedelic Experience Weekends – legal, modern ceremonial retreats in The Netherlands that allow people with any experience level to explore the mystical and spiritual nature of psychedelics. With experienced facilitators holding space, the environment is safe and comfortable, in turn potentially being very therapeutic and personally transformational for participants. Ciara and Stefana look forward to sharing details about the setting, ethics, application processes, preparation, integration and future goals of The Psychedelic Experience Weekends in their talk.
