Evolute Institute

EVOSHIFT: A TRANSFORMATIONAL PSYCHEDELIC RETREAT JOURNEY

Our program for deep self exploration, mind expansion and personal flourishing

EvoSHIFT is a unique personal development journey for curious minds who want to become more intimate with life. EvoSHIFT is for those who want to re-connect with onself and with others, re-invent the way they operate in the world, and unfold their full potential. Participants report that EvoSHIFT helped them to get unstuck, find orientation at turning points in their lives, and get to the next level of insight and development.

The program includes a 3-week virtual preparation and 2-month virtual aftercare phase with multiple group sessions and four individual sessions with our professional guides, bolstered by cutting-edge transformational learning material and evidence-based techniques. The core of the program is a 4-day on-site retreat in the Netherlands where participants can experience altered states of consciousness first-hand, such as breathwork, meditation, and support for a psychedelic psilocybin truffle journey in a safe, legal, and intimate group setting.

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

EvoSHIFT is a space for transformational learning, for authentic connection, and for a true “shift” in your life. All facilitated by highly professional, warm and attuned staff in a wonderful nature-based retreat setting. Are you ready for a true SHIFT?   

What is the question you bring?

At Evolute, we believe that purpose and vitality come from a deep alignment with one’s inner self. Our retreat program serves as a compass, guiding you towards the sources of your passions and longings. Through our guided journey, you’ll find professional and emphatic support in uncovering layers of your consciousness, revealing deeper layers of your being and the path that awaits.

Often, feeling trapped or stagnant stems from unprocessed emotions, limiting beliefs, or unresolved past experiences. Evolute provides a sanctuary where you can confront these blockages head-on. With the transformative power of psilocybin truffles and our expert guidance, you’ll navigate the intricate landscapes of your psyche, unearthing the roots of your constraints and setting your potential free. Delve into the recesses of your mind, let go of the old, and emerge reborn.

Life, with its boundless intricacies, holds secrets waiting to be discovered. In our carefully designed program and supportive environment, you will feel safe to journey into the depths of your consciousness, potentially even transcending the ordinary and touching the realms of the transpersonal. In this expanded state you might gain insight into the universe’s grand tapestry.

Your path is unique, laden with adventures that resonate specifically with your personality and soul. At Evolute Institute, we facilitate introspection, allowing you to tap into your innermost aspirations and visions. As the veil of everyday life lifts, clarity emerges, pointing you towards adventures that promise growth, excitement, and fulfillment. We help you understand what is truly important to you and get your priorities clear. 

Authenticity is the harmony between your inner world and the life you manifest externally. At Evolute Institute, we champion the journey towards genuine self-expression. By delving deep into your core, you’ll find the courage to live courageously and wholeheartedly, fostering connections that are genuine, profound, and nurturing. Experience what it means to embrace your new-found self with a sense of peace, dignity and compassion. In this space of authenticity, true belonging blossoms and heartfelt connections are forged.

Each person is unique and thus also the question they are walking with currently. Our expert guides help you to clarify your questions and help you shape your intention for your journey…

Three pillars of the EvoSHIFT psychedelic-assisted RETREAT program

Explore

Self-Exploration isn’t merely an act of discovery but a commitment to understanding the multi-dimensional aspects of oneself. It’s about confronting the unknown, asking the difficult questions, and accepting the treasures that lie deep within. This is where we will support you: our journey encourages a deep dive into the vastness of the self and of life. It’s about seeking clarity, understanding our patterns, and gently questioning our preconceived notions. This introspection, guided by our professional team, aims to provide a clearer perspective on the intricate layers of your being. By probing your inner realms, you might unearth dormant desires, buried emotions, and untapped potential.  

Realize

Gaining true insight cannot be forced or willed into existence. Some spiritual teachers say profound insight or “awakening” comes by accident. Well, we at Evolute Institute think that through the right conditions, commitment and inner work, we can at least invite insight and reconnection into our lives.

For some, deep insight might come as moment of realization when dormant truths spring to life, illuminating one’s path. For others, it may come as small, quiet realizations that gradually piece together a clearer picture. With EvoSHIFT, insight and reconnection is about tuning in, noticing the nuances, and seeing the familiar with a fresh perspective, with beginner’s eyes. It’s about recognizing the patterns that serve us and letting go of those that don’t, all while fostering a heightened yet grounded state of awareness.

Transform

Transformation is a journey, not a destination. EvoSHIFT’s approach to transformation is rooted in compassion, patience, and responsibility. It’s about small shifts that make a meaningful difference over time. Rather than drastic changes, we focus on the gradual evolution of thought patterns, behaviors, and beliefs. We guide you through a process where insights lead to mindful actions, fostering a life more in tune with your genuine self. Our program fosters a space where insights will turn into actions, and realizations manifest as tangible shifts in your life.

Overview over your 3-months EvoSHIFT 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
For our time in the Netherlands, we prepared 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 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 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 will start the 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 retreat program participants is waiting for you to support you and to hold you accountable to your own commitments.
