Synthesis is a Netherlands based company that offers legal, medically supervised, and scientific based psychedelic retreats in Amsterdam. We make the psychedelic experience accessible for curious individuals who want to utilize moderate-to-high doses of psilocybin truffles to catalyze creative breakthroughs, explore and expand consciousness.

Synthesis spearheads a new era in the integration of psychedelics into modern culture. In carefully curated settings, these remarkable molecules can be agents of transformational experiences. They can restore our sense of wonder, and foster a renewed sense of connection; to ourselves, others, and the natural beauty of the wider world. Our name is a tribute to our core mission; to catalyze synthesis between modern research, ancient shamanistic rituals, and spiritual practices through the ages, bringing these together to create a recipe for transformative wellness.

Through ritual and ceremony, open dialogue, bodywork, meditation, the power of sound, psychedelic education, and through the guidance of professional facilitators, psychedelics have the power to restructure thoughts, sharpen perceptual lenses, and awaken new forms of consciousness. This sense of possibility is what you will discover at Synthesis; a locus for true transformation and expanding horizons.
