Why Beckley

Bringing together modern science and ancient wisdom.

As part of the Beckley ecosystem, Beckley Retreats is proud to build on the work of its co-founder, Amanda Feilding. Dubbed the “Queen of Psychedelics” by Forbes, Amanda founded the Beckley Foundation in 1998—a think tank and NGO dedicated to furthering psychedelic research and advocating for policy reform. At Retreats, we’re bridging the latest scientific research with ancient wisdom traditions in order to create the richest possible experience for participants.

Psychedelic Ceremonies Through The Ages
Prehistoric rock murals found in France, Spain and Algeria suggest that the ceremonial use of psilocybin predates recorded history. This tradition lives on today in indigenous communities around the world: the Huichol, Mazatecs, Shipibo, Yanomami, and Bwiti to name just a few. Our team of guides honor a variety of traditions and lineages passed down to them from their own teachers.
The Beckley Foundation
Established in 1998 by Amanda Feilding, our co-founder and an early activist and thought partner to Albert Hofmann (the creator of LSD), The Beckley Foundation has been instrumental in furthering psychedelic research and influencing policy.

Now Amanda’s vision is extending into the wider Beckley ecosystem, including: Beckley Retreats, where we’re enabling access to safe, legal, and transformative psychedelic ceremonies; Beckley Academy, which offers training and certification for practitioners; Beckley Psytech, which focuses on helping those with neurological and psychiatric disorders; and Beckley Waves, a venture studio dedicated to supporting companies building the care delivery infrastructure in this space.

The New Research
Thanks in part to the Beckley Foundation, there is a growing body of peer-reviewed research—like the notable studies coming out of John Hopkins in the USA and Imperial College London in the UK—demonstrating the powerful effects of psychedelics on a variety of modern maladies including depression, addiction, trauma, eating disorders, and more.*

Building With Integrity
At Beckley Retreats we believe conscious business practices should just be a cost of doing business. We are currently developing programs in three key areas: 1) equitable access through a scholarship program to attend our retreats at low-to-no cost, 2) reciprocity with local communities through apprenticeship programs and local partnerships, and 3) reciprocity with the indigenous communities we have learned so much from in this space; without their knowledge-sharing we would not be able to do this work, and so we are in discussions with the Indigenous Medicine Conservation Fund to develop our give-back approach with these specific groups. As all this work unfolds we will share updates here.
Keeping You Safe

Your emotional, psychological, and physical safety is our priority.

Safe Location
During retreats our group is always the sole occupant of Good Hope, which is a remote and gated property with 24-hour security.
Holistic Training
Our world-class team of facilitators bring together the wisdom of indigenous practices with modern scientific knowledge. Our staff has 50 years of combined experience in guided psychedelic experiences.
Dedicated Care
There will be a minimum of one facilitator for every 4 participants to focus on your wellbeing during the ceremonies.
Medical Professionals
Our lead facilitators are always either licensed psychotherapists or doctors and we have a 24/7 on-call medical doctor nearby. There is also an urgent care facility is located within 20 minutes of the property.
Suitability Screening
During your confidential intake with one of our lead facilitators, we will (with your consent) discuss your personal medical and psychiatric history. If we determine that consuming psilocybin may lead you to experience unwanted drug interactions and other unintended complications, you will not be able to participate in the psilocybin ceremonies.
