20th - 26th June 2022, Netherlands
This one of a kind consciousness retreat explores the practices of consciousness expansion, the current and historic understanding of consciousness and a place to explore what lies within and without.
What is consciousness?
Consciousness has many understandings depending on the tradition you are approaching it from. Whether you are coming to it from a scientific faith, a religious faith, a spiritual faith or a philosophical enquiry, we will be looking at all of these approaches to consciousness on this retreat.
Your understanding of the concept of consciousness has been developed through your own cultural background and personal history. These influences will define how you see the world, others, consciousness and reality.
We will enquire, refine and explore what is consciousness and how it can be manipulated
The week-long retreat is designed to broaden your understanding and experience of consciousness yogic practices, lectures, open discussions, and mind-altering natural entheogenic substances, psilocybin (magic mushrooms). Over the week the topic of what is consciousness? Where is consciousness? Who am I? What are really spiritual experiences? What are the origins of mystical experiences? Can entheogens enrich our understanding of religions? How do we define reality? What is Reality? Is consciousness generated from inside the brain? All of these questions will be explored from an over 5000-year-old philosophy and for the latest scientific understanding of neurology.
This is an exposition of consciousness and reality with a highly trained team who have worked with altered states in some of the most reputable places on the planet. Collectively they have decades of experience in this area of spirituality, Reality, love, God and psychology.
Led by Charlie Kelly and his team of therapists, psychedelic facilitators and yogis. The whole team is there to keep everyone safe and comfortable while these topics are explored together, answer questions, and help guide your inquiry.
Charlie Kelly: 20 years of playing with consciousness through substances, 18 years of playing with consciousness through hypnosis, 15 years of playing with consciousness through meditation, 10 years of yoga, 6 years with psychedelics and 3 years studying it therapeutically and 2 years academically.
The retreat will be held over 6 days, developing the experience and understanding of consciousness, reality and truth.
"But the man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out. He will be wiser but less cocksure, happier but less self-satisfied, humbler in acknowledging his ignorance yet better equipped to understand the relationship of words to things, of systematic reasoning to the unfathomable Mystery which it tries, forever vainly, to comprehend." - Huxley, The Doors of Perception
