Bursary Scheme

We don’t believe that money should be a barrier to taking part in our retreats so we have developed a bursary scheme to support those who couldn’t otherwise attend.

We also believe that it is important to make the investment you are able to. Giving value to the experience helps with getting the most out of it. As such, we will ask you what you can afford to pay, and the rest will come from the bursary scheme.

The application process involves answering a few questions, and the decision on how to allocate funds is based on assessing financial hardship and the inclusion of under-represented groups including (but not solely) people of colour, LGBTQ+ and non-binary people.

If you feel called to support this work and increase access to it, your donations will make a big difference, click here to support us.

If you would like to apply to the bursary scheme, please do so only once you have already applied and been accepted onto a retreat. 

“As someone who has had a long history with depression, this retreat was something that I felt would be really helpful to me. However due to personal reasons I had to take a long period of time off work. The bursary scheme allowed me to attend the retreat with peace of mind, and as a result it has helped in ways that other forms of treatment (therapy and medication alone) hasn't. I am really appreciative of this scheme, because it makes these types of experiences available to people from all backgrounds and takes into consideration peoples’ varying circumstances. As a result of the retreat, it has really shifted my perspective on life and I feel much better than I have in years.”

“I attended the women-only retreat in a life period full of big changes and instability. The experience was a gift that I was drawn to and deeply enjoyed thanks also to the bursary allocated for such retreats, without which I would have missed out.

The experience to me was well beyond expectations. The psilocybin taken in a safe and ceremonial environment alone was undeniably a magic gift, but it was also the amount of love, care, art, attention, plan, professionality, preparation and much more involved in the retreat that enhanced and made the whole experience even more special and profound. The amazing women of Alalaho met at the cottage, introduced themselves as “facilitators” which I guess is technically true, but the reality is that they have been first and foremost carers, sisters, healers, mothers, friends and guardians, so all my deep gratitude to them all!

What Alalaho offers is incredibly important not just for us as individuals, but for the society at large. I wish everybody to participate in a retreat at least once, with the women-only programme being an absolute paramount for all women.”
