Feel Better offers altered state retreats, typically involving psilocybin truffles (magic mushrooms) and also breathwork, and the use of cannabis to release trauma. Cannabis is an unsung hero of healing, when used in the right way. These powerful modalities are offered in a retreat setting with an excellent ratio of carers to guests — usually almost 1-1. This is relatively rare in the retreat industry, which often adopts a more self-directed approach to your care.
We feel that close support and intervention should be there for if it is needed. We feel a psychedelic journey should be very relational. That way your experience is more likely to be reparative rather than re-traumatic. We also believe in lower and usually safer doses that keep you in the realm of your life, rather than sending you out to ‘God’. Your issues arise in your life, so why give you so much mushroom that you leave that domain? If you want change in your life, then perhaps it is effective to use a substance to open you up to what is beneath your current life dissatisfaction. That is not to say that higher dose retreats do not offer goodness.
We will announce the next retreat here once it is scheduled. Hit the contact button to go on the waiting list.
We look forward to welcoming you.

He is about to finalise his training with The Institute of Psychedelic Therapy. Jonny has good experience supporting clients with deep trauma and difficulties, both in groups and 1-1, and he is at home in the altered-state realms that this work delivers. Walking beside clients and supporting them to learn to more fully meet their lives and find their way, is his absolute purpose.
