Unambiguously positive. Very much the ideal cast of people one would want for such a place. Most importantly though, they know what they're doing, they care about what they're doing and they care about those they're working with. An ideal venue for both the truffle sessions themselves and the preparation and integration enclosing them. Food was fantastic. Suffice to say these 5 days helped me in ways I couldn't have imagined before.
I cannot recommend New Moon enough. The environment was perfect and all the facilitators caring, skilled and professional. The food was really wonderful too. I had some amazing experiences with the truffles and also bonding with and getting to know the group.
A tremendous experience, in which the various supporting activities were just as valuable as the psilocybin ceremony itself. An atmosphere of trust and compassion made us feel safe to explore the issues each of us brought to the retreat. The facilitators are clearly deeply knowledgeable about the use of mushrooms for personal growth and transformation. It was so great to see how much each person got out of their time there, often in unexpected ways, or just beyond expectation. Simply mind-blowing!
The retreat was transformational – and this is a term I rarely use! I felt safe and secure the entire time as did the other retreat guests who attended. The facilitators were all experienced while truly caring and concerned about the guests who attending. I would recommend this to any persons who are even inquisitive, and I have told others the same. After the retreat, I knew I had chosen wisely in New Moon and I look forward to attending further retreats with them.
Thank you for creating this retreat and the possibilities it created for all the people that attended! Thanks for putting your love and knowledge in. We need more spaces like this, more spaces for transformation, healing and exploration in safe settings. You were the right kind of present, all of you. Muchas gracias :) .
Amazing lovely facilitators and a really nice group. I wasn’t sure what to expect as this was my first experience but I felt comfortable right away. Thank you so much!

Tuk discovered psychedelics when a deep crisis after prolonged depression forced him to look beyond conventional medicine. MDMA therapy and magic truffle sessions facilitated immense healing and consequently sparked in him a passionate curiosity about psychedelics and the mind. He has since explored these plant medicines extensively in South America, and in 2016 began facilitating private and group sessions in his endeavour to share the benefits he has received. By co-creating New Moon Retreats Tuk hopes to make this kind of experience available to many more people.⇾ Full bio
