EVOLEAD: A TRANSFORMATIONAL RETREAT JOURNEY

Our flagship program for the personal development of pioneering minds

EVOLEAD is a unique personal development program specifically designed for accomplished professionals, entrepreneurs, leaders, change-makers and other pioneering minds. EVOLEAD is for those who want to grow, re-invent the way they operate in the world and unfold their full potential.

The program includes a 3-week virtual preparation and 2-month virtual aftercare phase with multiple virtual group and four individual coaching sessions as well as high-end learning material and evidence-based insights. The core of the program, however, is a 4-day on-site retreat where participants can experience altered states of consciousness first-hand, such as breathwork and meditation. For those who plan to have a psychedelic experience in the Netherlands: we also support you on your psychedelic psilocybin truffle journey in a safe, legal and supported group setting.

With EvoLEAD, we help people unlock their creative powers, connect with their innermost purpose, re-orient & find a new path, and catalyze their personal and professional growth.

EvoLEAD is a transformational retreat and our original contribution to the world and our gift to entrepreneurs, change makers & leadership pioneers.

overview evolead journey: preparation, immersion & integration

Overview over your 3-months EvoLEAD journey

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

I. Preparation

3 weeks, part-time, virtual sessions
The better you are prepared for our intense immersion, the deeper will be your experience. You will get to know your fellow program participants and the team and learn what's important for the upcoming weeks. We cover important aspects such as intention setting, the importance of set & setting for a fruitful journey, how we can understand consciousness and the mind from a scientific perspective, what we know from research what happens with the mind under the influence of psychedelics, what vertical inner development and personal growth is and how we can enable such growth, and we have some reading and prep work for you.

II. Immersion - ceremony

4 days, full-time, on-site retreat
This is where you will meet your fellow program participants as well as our facilitators and guides in-person at our retreat center in the Netherlands. We have a curriculum for you that includes mindset development experiences, exercises around resistance and acceptance, connection & trust building as well as capacity building for dealing better with inner tensions and the difficulties and paradoxes of life and leadership. There is also space for contemplation and journalling to get more clarity around values, vision and purpose. You will experience altered states first-hand through breathwork, mindfulness meditation and movement practice. We support you in your preparations for your psychedelic experience with your self-purchased legal psilocybin-containing truffles in a safe and professional group setting. You will have the chance to dive deeply into unchartered territories of your mind through altered states and contemplative practices. You will do challenging but highly rewarding individual and group exercises to better understand yourself and your special gift to the world, and how you want to develop your leadership. We have space together to start the digestion and integration process, individually, together, and in nature.

III. Integration

2 months, part-time, virtual sessions
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 - both in your private and in your professional life. You will receive the necessary support from your fellow group of participants and from our coaches, both in multiple virtual group and in 1:1 coaching sessions where we will continue to guide you on your personal and professional path. A community of like-minded and like-hearted EvoLEADers is waiting for you to support you and to hold you accountable to your own commitments.

Is the evolead retreat program right for your personal growth journey?

We invite you to schedule a call with us. Together, we can explore any questions or concerns you may have. We can explore whether this program is right for you at this time and ensure you feel confident about and ready to embrace this transformative experience.

“We are here to support your exploration, at your pace, with no expectations.” – Patrick Liebl

EVOLEAD was designed for entrepreneurs, organisational leaders, change-makers and other pioneering minds who wish to take the next step in their life: personally and professionally.

We offer an intense multi-week curriculum with training and coaching that leans on 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 “rational minds”, from our routine ways of thinking, feeling, and sensing and hence become emotionally, intellectually and viscerally more receptive to the present moment. With ASC we can truly expand our mindset, grow our inner capacity and work on our personal intention.

At EVOLEAD, we carefully curate a selection of these modalities to create a unique and experiential personal 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 breathwork, meditation, and also support for your planned psilocybin-containing truffles journey in a safe and legal setting with experienced guides and professional staff. All of this takes place in a trusted environment of peers, building a community of leaders and pioneering minds that accompany and support each other during and after the EVOLEAD program.

ALTERED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS
We support different “mind technologies” to induce altered states of consciousness and peak experiences, in particular breath- and bodywork, meditation, and we also support you on your psilocybin truffles experience in a lawful setting.

MINDFULNESS CAPABILITIES
zen circle of lifeWe 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
4 connected peopleWe assemble a coherent yet diverse group of like-minded leaders who will support each other during and beyond our programs.

MINDSETS FRAMEWORK
a person with a transparent head that looks into the brainWe 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.
