When venturing into the world of psilocybin retreats, it’s critical to compare the costs across the spectrum of options available. Prices can vary significantly depending on the location, length of stay, and the amenities provided. International retreats often come with a higher price tag due to travel expenses beyond the base cost of the experience.

  • Preparation and Integration Sessions: Not all retreats include these in their base fee, and they can be crucial for a supportive experience.

Take Note of any Hidden or Additional Costs

Unsurprisingly, the sticker price on a retreat might not tell the whole story. It’s essential to be vigilant about hidden or additional costs that could affect our budget. Not all retreat centers are upfront about every expense we might incur. For instance, airfare is typically not included, and on-site expenses like the purchase of magic mushrooms can add a substantial amount to the bottom line – sometimes an additional $360, with taxes on top.

Here are a few more elements we should consider that aren’t always included in the advertised price:

  • Travel insurance
  • Transportation outside scheduled group conveyance
  • Personal expenditures
  • Activities like massages or special excursions

Let’s also note the cost of truffles or psilocybin, which at some retreats is billed separately. For instance, one might pay 45 Euros upon arrival for truffles. Such nuances in pricing structures can make a substantial difference. We must scrutinize the fine print and ask point-blank questions to unearth any costs that might lurk beneath the surface. That way, we’re not taken by surprise when the total cost surpasses our initial estimates.
