Co-founder, Synthesis

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Martijn scales personal flourishing, well-being, and transformation through psychedelics.

Martijn Schirp is the co-founder of Synthesis, a psychedelic retreat center for personal growth, emotional work, and spiritual development. With a background in interdisciplinary science and philosophy, and a strong foundation in coaching and entrepreneurship, he aims to make psychedelic tools accessible in a safe, legal, and modern context.

He has been writing and speaking about psychedelics, interviewing experts in this field, and helped organize The Interdisciplinary Conference on Psychedelics Research 2016 in Amsterdam. With Synthesis, he aims to make the psychedelic experience available to curious individuals who want to utilize moderate-to-high doses of psilocybin truffles to catalyze creative breakthroughs, explore consciousness, find meaning, improve confidence, and induce mystical experience.

Infinitely “curious about the human story,” Martijn himself reached out to psychedelics when he was in search of new perspectives and clarity to reorient his way of being.
