Psilocybin therapy in Belgium
Psilocybin therapy in Belgium is currently not allowed, and we expect Belgium to remain conservative and continue prohibition for at least a few more years. Meanwhile, research into the positive effects of psychedelics on the psyche continues mainly in the United States, United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Due to various reports in the Belgian media about magic truffles and magic mushrooms in particular (active ingredient psilocybin -> psilocin), legalization in Belgium may begin sooner than expected.

Many truffle sessions and ceremonies for Belgians
So recently there has been a relatively large amount of media attention in Belgium for the healing effects of psilocybin. Especially after Selah Sue's story, many Belgians are coming from Belgium to the Netherlands for psychedelic ceremonies since it is illegal in Belgium. Another factor is of course that we here in the Netherlands have had much longer experience with the use of these psychedelic substances. We are regularly told through our clients that doctors in Belgium suggest our services "off the record" as an alternative to regular care that is then inadequate. In the first quarter of 2022, about half of our clients came from Belgium!
Most Belgian clients come to the Netherlands in small groups of 2-4 people and use our Psychedelic Loft space in Schiedam. They stay overnight in Schiedam after the session before returning home.

Open truffle ceremony
It is also possible to join an open truffle ceremony. At an open truffle ceremony, the group is not closed and there is a maximum of 5 other participants. It is good to consider what you yourself find comfortable. Some clients find connecting with strangers an advantage and others prefer more privacy and personal attention.

Submit your own location
We also come on location within the Dutch borders. So it is possible to rent a vacation home, Airbnb or a hotel room and do the session there. This way you can see for yourself if there is a particular place that suits you well.

Wherever you come from, you are of course welcome. The languages spoken are Dutch and English. If you do not speak these languages you can bring your own interpreter. We also recommend booking the day after the session as a recovery day and if this is the day of the return flight, make sure that this flight is not too early or postpone the return flight by one day.
What do you want a psychedelic experience for?
Do you have a spiritual or therapeutic reason to participate in a psilocybin session? Or are you curious about the effects and want a safe setting? In any case, we have a lot of experience when it comes to therapeutic reasons and we offer a personalized preparation to get as much as possible out of the session.
