Evolead Psychedelic retreat

OUR FLAGSHIP LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM for entrepreneurs & Decision-makers

EVOLEAD is a 4-day immersive personal and leadership development retreat specifically designed for leaders, entrepreneurs and decision-makers. It includes a 3-week preparation and 2-month aftercare phase with multiple virtual group and individual coaching sessions. 

We accompany you in a highly personal and intimate way through your individual development journey over the course of 3 months.

With EvoLEAD, we help leaders unlock their creative powers, connect with their innermost purpose, and catalyze their personal and professional growth. Participants have said that their EvoLEAD journey meant to them “coming home”, “being in alignment with oneself” and “learning to fly”.

In a setting of carefully selected participants, tailored content, and with the help of experienced facilitators, we employ consciousness-altering technologies together with reflective, contemplative and experiential practices.

As one of our participants said “It has to be experienced to be understood. Just do it.” – EvoLEAD is our original and unique contribution to the world and our gift to entrepreneurs, decision- and change makers.

What our clients say

Background info

EVOLEAD was designed for leaders and decision-makers who wish to take the next step in their life: personally and professionally.

We offer an intense multi-week curriculum that specifically applies the power of altered states of consciousness (ASC) to do transformational work. ASC are conditions that are significantly different from an ordinary waking state. These states temporarily change the overall pattern of subjective experience and allow us to perceive ourselves as well as the world around us from an entirely different perspective. We can take a step back from our routine ways of thinking, feeling, and sensing and hence become emotionally, intellectually and viscerally more receptive to the present moment. ASC can be experienced through a wide range of modalities, e.g. mindfulness, meditation, breathwork, some forms of bodywork, prolonged deliberate physical exertion, or psychedelics. Many of these practices have long traditions of use to promote growth and healing.

At EVOLEAD, we carefully curate a selection of these modalities to create a unique and experiential leadership development program. Cornerstones of the program are insights into consciousness development & leadership mindsets, the training of mindfulness & emotional intelligence, and the direct experience of altered states of consciousness through psilocybin-containing truffles in a safe and legal setting with experienced guides. All of this takes place in a trusted environment of peers, building a community of leaders that accompany and support each other during and after the EVOLEAD program. 

Cornerstones of the EVOLEAD curriculum
ALTERED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS

We use different technologies to induce altered states of consciousness, in particular breath- and bodywork, meditation, and legal psilocybin truffles for peak experiences

MINDFULNESS CAPABILITIES

We train our participants with different techniques of contemplative practice (e.g. with the ACT framework and HAKOMI-style mindfulness) to become grounded and aware of oneself

LEADERSHIP COMMUNITY

We assemble a coherent yet diverse group of like-minded leaders who will support each other during and beyond our programs

MINDSETS FRAMEWORK

We employ frameworks that help you understand what leadership mindset you are usually operating from and explore how you can access higher-level mindsets, such as the systemic-autonomous mindset

To maximize your benefit from the program, we have structured the curriculum into three phases:

I. Preparation

The better you are prepared for our intense immersion, the deeper will be your experience. You will get to know your leadership cohort and learn what's important for the upcoming weeks.

Organization: 3 weeks, part-time, virtual sessions

II. Immersion

This is where you will meet your leadership cohort in-person. You will be prepared for your psychedelic ceremony with psilocybin-containing truffles and will have the chance to dive deeply into unchartered territories of your mind. You will do challenging but highly rewarding individual and group exercises to better understand yourself and your leadership.

Organization: 4 days, full-time, on-site sessions in the Netherlands

III. Integration

After you return from the immersion into your day-to-day life, now is the time to solidify your insights and ensure that you put into practice what you have learned. You will receive the necessary support from your leadership cohort and from our coaches.

Organization: 2 months, part-time, virtual sessions
