De Tinusboom

Our weekend takes place at De Tinusboom Retreat Centre in the Netherlands.

You are welcome to relax in the dining area or sit in one of the little nooks in the attractive garden.


The garden has an unobstructed view of the adjacent estate and a pond which is in open connection with the river Alm. It is a place where you can come home, explore and reconnect with your core.

A Comprehensive Program

for meaningful change

Our psilocybin truffle  ceremonies are part of a comprehensive program that goes beyond the psychedelic journey itself. We provide you with the tools and resources for meaningful change and support your integration of the insights and experiences gained during the session into your daily life.

Before the Weekend Retreat

Intake & individual coaching 

We hold individual 30-minute online intake meetings with each participant, to answer any questions, and manage expectations. We will offer some pointers to support you as you start preparing for your journey.

We will meet together for a personal 90-minute one-on-one preparation and orientation session. We will share some information regarding dosages and support you to decide on the dosage that is perfect for your needs. The balance of the time will be spent in a personal guided parts process.

Post Retreat

Our vision is that integration and preparation are as important as the psychedelic journey itself.

After the retreat, we invite you to join an online group check-in circle, to connect and share your experiences. We will also set up a time for another individual 90-minute coaching session to support you in integrating any changes and insights that you have had. This way we ensure you anchor your experience and benefit more from the wisdom that arose during your journey.



Our psychedelic retreats take place in the Netherlands where psilocybin truffles are legal. 

The venue is in a quiet location in a natural setting. The rooms are comfortable.

You will feel right at home!

"Nic and Sarah went above and beyond in making the retreat feel comfortable and safe. Really well-thought activities, lovely facilities, really tasty food and very caring facilitators."


"I am feeling very grateful for having participated in this weekend retreat.
From the moment of arrival until departure there was so much quiet care for each participant individually and for the whole group. It felt as if I entered a cocoon of space, warmth and unconditional love. There was a subtlety and delicacy and lots of joy in how Sarah and Nik dealt with the preparation of the journey, the journey itself and going home again.
I experienced so much awareness, clarity, tenderness and joy throughout the whole process that made it possible for me to totally surrender to the medicine and fully trust."


"Nic and Sarah consistently make wonderful retreats happen. I have joined 3 of them and will keep doing that. Recently I was at their Psychedelic Truffle weekend with amazing food, a nice venue and a good atmosphere.

With their wide experience and knowledge of NVC, IFS and overall human kindness, I have learned a lot about myself and had the opportunity to take that to my everyday life (which is still hard to do). Their attention to detail and cleanliness inspire me to also take care of my surroundings. The music they played was beautiful and served the journey well. It would have been great to have more togetherness in singing & making music. But from what I hear this is certainly planned! Yay".
