Our Services

Numinous Ways is dedicated to supporting you on your journey, whether it’s overcoming challenges, deepening your practice, or exploring new aspects of yourself. We believe in your potential to experience the numinous and are committed to helping you live a fulfilling and meaningful life.

What is the Numinous Way of Life?

The numinous way is a mindset that recognizes the inherent mystery, awe, and wonder of life, and seeks to explore and appreciate the deeper dimensions of reality beyond what is observable or measurable. Through numinous practices, such as psychedelic experiences, mindfulness or other contemplative practices, bodywork, breathwork, creative expression, individuals can develop a greater sense of connection to the natural world and a deeper appreciation for its beauty and complexity.

These remarkable results obtained from the MEQ-30 assessments indicate that an overwhelming 84% of participants reported having mystical experiences during our retreats.



As a first-timer in the world of psychedelics, I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction. For anyone looking to embark on a spiritual or psychedelic journey, I cannot recommend Numinous Ways enough.


I am so grateful to the facilitators for holding the most beautiful space during the retreat, and for creating a truly memorable experience. Their warm, nurturing presence and support for the journeys made the whole group feel welcome and safe. 


The facilitators work beautifully well together and expertly with retreat participants. Their warmth and complementarity suffuse reassuringly assured support with gentle vibes of mindful intention.

The facilitators’ guidance during the psychedelic sessions was nothing short of exceptional. They skilfully created a sacred space where I felt completely comfortable and able to explore the depths of my consciousness.

I couldn’t have asked for a more professional, supportive and loving environment for what is an extremely profound experience. I will return, and I have recommended it to family and friends!

While our team consists of mental health professionals, it is crucial to note that during our retreats, we function solely as facilitators, not therapists. We provide guidance, support, and a safe environment for psychedelic experiences, but our role is not to provide therapy or diagnose mental health conditions. Participants are encouraged to seek professional therapy or counselling if they require therapeutic support. We can provide this pre and post retreat through our specialist psychotherapeutic services, or you may choose to acquire your own mental health services. We also cannot guarantee breakthrough experiences or permanent fundamental life changes, as every individual's journey is unique. Further research into psychedelics is necessary to fully understand their effects. For full disclaimer and outlines of responsibility, please click below.
