THE SHIFT - A WHOLE NEW HIGH RETREAT

FIND YOUR REAL-SELF, RELEASE THE PAST, MAKE THE SHIFT

7 Days to Rediscover your Path, Find Clarity and Create Lasting Change. The Shift is a Retreat Experience of Insights, Intimacy and Togetherness, Supported by the Spirit of Psilocybin and Guided by the Creators of A Whole New High.

CAN YOU IMAGINE YOURSELF WITHOUT YOUR SELF-DOUBT, WITHOUT YOUR ANXIETY, WITHOUT YOUR FEAR, WITHOUT YOUR SELF CRITICISM? THAT VERSION OF YOU EXISTS, IT EXISTS WITHIN ALL OF US. WHEN ONE ALLOWS THEMSELVES TO SURRENDER TO THE ENTHEOGENIC EXPERIENCE WITH CONSCIOUS INTENT, WE MEET THE TRUTH OF WHO WE ARE!

 - KERRIE O' REILLY


ENTHEOGENS

Psilocybin, Kambo and Shamanic Rapé snuff are the Entheogens we will work with during this retreat. Psilocybin is the substance found in magic mushrooms and truffles that has been proven to be an excellent tool to cure depression and anxiety. Kambo is a frog poison used by indigenous cultures of the Amazon to cleanse the physical body and release stuck emotions. Rapé snuff is known to move energy and bring emotions into flow.

CLARITY

During this retreat you will learn how to work with entheogens in such a way that you can have access to the parts of your subconscious mind which hold the answers that you need. Through this you will learn self-trust, intuitive knowing and an understanding for why your life has been the way it has been.

CHANGE

You will learn how to move forward in your life. This retreat is not a “pause” on your regular life, providing enough of a break to sustain you to go back to your old ways, allowing you to temporarily “cope” again . This retreat is “A SHIFT”. It is an opening to discover why you are stuck and discover how to create movement to carry you forward because going backwards … is no longer an option.

TOGETHERNESS

During this week you will learn the strength in vulnerability, the power of vulnerability and the joy, relief and freedom you can receive through your own expression of vulnerability. Allow us to support you, hold you and to create a safe space of authenticity together where we can cry, laugh, scream, rage, release our pain, our fears, our shame and our beauty in absolute safety and celebration.

THE EXPERIENCE


Why work with ENTHEOGENS?

Entheogens are psychoactive substances that induce a spiritual experience. They offer opportunities that go beyond what is offered in spiritual traditions or psychotherapy sessions. They bring us into non-ordinary states of consciousness and help us to unfold our personality. Insights that may take years for people to achieve through meditation and learning, if they even arise at all, can be revealed within moments during an experience with entheogens. Even so-called “bad trips” and breakdowns can be turned into a process of moving through the pain into the direction of release, liberation and awakening. A journey deep into the unconscious, with the right guidance, preparation and integration not only offers highly therapeutic benefits, it also moves further into the spiritual spheres of the transcendence of the self and toward the formation of a whole new life!

A JOUNEY INTO THE SELF SURROUNDED BY NATURE 
The Shift Retreat will take place in The Netherlands where Psilocybin truffles are legal. We have chosen one of the countries most beautiful spots: Friesland. Only a 2 hour train ride away from Amsterdam we find the land of waterways, lakes and canals, beaches, as well as old villages and vast pasturelands. The tranquility that radiates from the breathtaking nature of Friesland will guide us to a place of tranquility within ourselves.
COMFORT, SERENITY, PRIVACY, PEACE
We have carefully chosen a beautiful home, with luxurious surroundings and amenities to further enhance and compliment the healing possibilities this week can offer. We will enjoy our own private garden lake, outside pool and private sauna to detox and release in. The Shift Retreat combines, comfort and nature along with the Entheogenic Experience to bring you a week of renewal and rejuvenation.

  • Alice and Kerrie created a powerful space for me to open up and heal. During my journey Alice held the space by assuring me that I was completely free to do what I needed to do. At the same time she was making sure my body was safe physically and getting what it needed. This made me feel safe to be my authentic self. Kerrie was my emotional guide. Part of the time while I was on the substance I felt painful emotions arising. Kerrie picked up on this and she guided me through the pain. She offered me presence and compassion that was able to help me heal deep layers of pain and shame I had been carrying. After we got through the painful emotions I was able to feel myself as open and from there I continued to have an amazing experience in the light. The time I had working with Kerrie and Alice continues offering me healing in my daily life. I highly recommend working with them if you want to expand your consciousness, heal emotionally, and awaken beautiful parts of yourself.

  • I felt safe working with Alice. She provided an environment that promoted healing, where I could go into my deepest, darkest shadows and know I would be held. The results I have had after working with her have been completely liberating. During one of my sessions with her, I went into the shame that I had been storing in my thighs my entire life. Since I was a young girl I have hated my thighs, it has always been my “problem area” and despite being thin, eating well, and exercising religiously I could never change my thighs. After this session my entire perspective on my thighs changed. For the first time in my life I could look in a mirror and not pick a part that part of my body. This has not only changed how I think about them they have actually changed shape. I fit in a jean size I have never worn before and I cant attribute this to any other change in my life. To have such a drastic result that has lasted with no conscious effort on my part is a priceless gift. It is because Alice and the medicine she uses allows you to get to the roots of the issues held deep within the subconscious mind. Working with her is a git I hope to do again and I would recommend her to anyone.

  • I have had the privilege of experiencing a conscious entheogenic experiences with both Kerrie and Alice. These women possess an exceptional ability to hold space for the powerful transcending journeys experienced through these mind altering drugs. They both have such a loving approach to observing and interpreting the subtleties of your visions and behaviors with the purpose of guiding you back to understand the truth of who you are. I cannot express just how much I have learned about myself through my experience with these drugs and these ladies. I would be grateful to work more with them in the future!

  • Working with Kerrie was simply amazing. Her ability to hold space for you and your emotions is incredible – like a rock in the waves and an unconditionally loving mother at the same time – strong and stable, warm, caring and nurturing. She is highly intuitive, knew what I needed in every single moment; knew when to speak and when to remain silent. I am so happy and grateful that she was there to support and facilitate me. In my session with Kerrie I was guided through an amazing journey into discovery of issues and then she organically helped me (with her curiosity) reach a profound healing through my own conclusions. Would I recommend her? Absolutely! Her style is loving and free of any judgements. With me Kerrie was equally as interested in my realizations as was I. We were a team, and I felt love was the fuel. My session with her uncovered my pain yet, it wasn’t painful. It was empowering and actually some of the time funny. If you want to do some deep healing work and have it be loving and easy, I would say Kerrie is the one to call ! Thank you, Kerrie

  • Kerrie & Alice have supported me through several entheogenic experiences. Each time I have worked with them I am more and more grateful and in awe of the work that they do. To me, this work is at the absolute core of what we as individuals and as a collective need right now. I have been working with entheogens to know myself better, my light, my shadows, my subconscious coping mechanisms and also to understand how to bring all of the subconscious  parts of me into alignment so I can simply enjoy my life better and live my true potential. The support and guidance I have received from these women during my experiences is what feels to me to be the deepest, most honest and most liberating form of therapy I could imagine.  They both have an acute intuitive knowing, abilities to work with all levels of emotions, trauma and pain in the most grounding and comforting way and an infectious way of being which is light, inspiring and fun. Working with them has brought insane changes to my life, I've met my dream partner and am actually able to have a truly conscious relationship. I finally sold my business and created a life that I feel completely free and secure in, I quit smoking, I have an incredible circle of friends now. Now when I have triggers and emotions arise, I feel completely comfortable and confident in how to work with them when previously they sent me into severe anxiety and panic.

  • I thought I knew the power of psychotropic medicine and the realms it can take me until the day Alice guided me on a journey that I can possibly describe as the most meaningful and beautiful encounter with myself, my inner children and what I suddenly remembered as my past and my truth, that I’ve ever had. I thought that I knew my past. It is incredible how her unconditional trust and presence and questions at the right time took me on a journey that allowed me to rediscover my truth. Alice’s presence allowed me to feel safe with my self and my emotions. I felt so validated for who I am. I didn’t feel any shame in expressing my deepest emotions. That alone was so healing. Alice’s presence was so nourishing and encouraged me to face shit I would have never wanted to face otherwise. Not being on my own, feeling the unconditional presence of her heart made me trust my emotions.

  • Kerrie O’ Reilly is a fantastic listener. The depth of her understanding goes further than the mere concept of your words uttered – she perceives the message behind your words and especially behind the facades you might build up for your defense subconsciously. With soft but firm care she then directs your attention upon the questions, you should be asked, be it by yourself or by her supporting you. So pretty fast there comes up a topic, that is the center of your actual inability to gain a new perspective to change. In this moment she takes you carefully on an inner imaginary journey to let you develop an environment in which you adjust the components met there for the better. The destination is more self awareness in feeling and thought, relief and healing. With new insight gained you literally feel the change physically, coming out of this process. My own individual experience, being facilitated by Kerrie, was very intense and opened up a new quality of perceiving my reality – a precious gift to keep in my heart. I highly recommend her as a companion and excellent facilitator of your trip experience, who holds the space for you to find your truth within you.

  • I had taken Iboga for the first time in my life and it was very intense and overwhelming. Having Alice with me as I came out of my ceremony made me feel so safe and heard. She asked me all the right questions and she was very interested in all of my stories I felt the need to tell. She helped me integrate and relive my experience. I felt that the most thing I needed was for someone to just hear me without being judgmental and to help me integrate my visions into my life and I couldn’t have asked for a better support than Alice.

    Mark Morales, Malta
  • What a journey! What, a, journey. This is not an easy one by any means, but you will come out laughing in the end no doubt, with Alice’s guidance. She is very well versed in the language of your soul and well aware of how to navigate through your inner self and reestablish a healthy relationship and a venue of communication between you and YOU ;), and help you find your own answers. She has different tools at her disposal in case you get stuck and knows how to use them, safely. If you are serious about your spiritual journey and making some lasting changes in your life for the better, this, is, it; and remember, if you don’t go within, you go without, just keep swimmin’

  • My entheogenic experience with Alice and Kerrie was a game changer for me. I had been working on my own self-awareness for many years, spent 9 years in therapy and even worked with plant medicines for 3 years before I came across their work. They helped me to put everything into perspective. They helped me to look at the things in my life that I was most terrified of looking at and somehow made them all genuinely feel more than ok. They not only supported me through my entheogenic journey but what I found most useful was the integration methods and practices they taught me which I was able to use in the following weeks and also in my everyday life ever since. I did many plant medicine ceremonies in Peru and Costa Rica but the emotional support and understanding that I received with these women along with the practical advice to make the changes that I wanted to make in my life was the missing link that I needed. Thank you both and thank you for this truly remarkable work you are bringing to the world. You have changed my life in a way I cannot express in words, thank you!

  • Kerrie has a very soft and gentle approach. As she was leading me through the process, it was as if she was the little voice in my head, my higher self always guiding me to healing. She knew exactly what to say and exactly how to deal with memories and trauma that came up. Without her assistance I think I would have been very scared or avoidant during much of the experience however with her guidance beside me I felt completely safe, supported and seen in a way I didn't know possible. I benefited so much from things that she guided me to recognise and so lovingly held parts of me that I have felt too ashamed to face. She enabled me to see these aspects of myself through love which previously would have felt completely impossible to me. Kerrie is very patient, caring and unconditionally present. I feel incredibly grateful to have had my first tripsitting experience with her. Because of her support and guidance, I not only had an incredibly experience but also got to the roots of many of my issues which I firmly believe would not have happened without her presence. This was a hugely transformative experience for me. Thank you again Kerrie!

  • Thank you Kerrie for giving me such a great opportunity to connect with you – I’ve been going through some turbulent but awakening times in my life after years of suppressing my emotion and carrying a lot of shame with them, and you really helped me to open up and get deeper whilst feeling safe. You have a very gentle and accepting way of being able to hear people and give them the space and time that they need. I’d say to anyone struggling with emotion, having difficulty in hearing your inner self/child, dealing with emotional suppression, and also importantly to learn to ‘receive’ from someone else that your services are invaluable. Thank you so much for what you do.

  • “For some years I held an unexpressed judgment inside of me, about my seemingly unacceptable desires and I was convinced that everyone else would judge me and reject me, the same way I was judging myself. When I was ready and asked Alice for her assistance I still felt slightly scarred, but I eventually opened up enough to trust her. When I allowed her to see me in this place, I never wanted to be seen in, what happened was truly amazing. She did not judge me and I felt held in an authentic and compassionate space. What I love about Alice is that her wisdom comes from the heart and her own life experience. She is humble and intuitive, with a sense of humour and childlike curiosity. When I realized that she didn’t judge me, a chain reaction started and I had to acknowledge that it’s possible to look at my feelings from a non-judgmental perspective, which then led me to forgive myself and being able to laugh again. What a breakthrough! Thank you Alice.

  • Alice is a wonderful person who inspires me time and again through her curiosity and passion to discover new territory of thought. With love and devotion she brings manifestations in her life to fruition. Everything she teaches and facilitates, she has experienced and road-tested intensely on herself. Whatever she does, she does it consciously and puts all of herself into it. Alice can open doors for you that lead you to insights, solutions, answers and healing. Through her ability to feel and see your needs and emotions, she creates a safe space perfectly fitted for you to discover yourself. She has the gift to hold you when you fall, to lead you back on track when you get lost and strengthen you when you feel weak. She is a person who I would trust with my life, my soul, my heart and my body.
