About Psychedelic Society

 

We are a collective who value physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing, creating adventure through movement and play.
Cultivating Consciousness, Curiosity, Connection.

 

Ethos

We aim to:

create an inclusive safe space for people to explore psychedelia & conciousness holisticially, as a part of art and culture, alternative medicine, politics and alternate states of conciousness,

cultivate a community-centred society through collaboration, feedback and accessibility,

expose the colonisation and capitalization within the psychedelic movement through intersectional information,

respect nature, indigenous and elder's knowledge,

promote substance safer use through harm reduction.

 

What do we do?

Events we host broaden our members’ understanding of what is possible whilst retaining the importance of safe practices and wellbeing. We incorporate a practice of play and encourage social engagement, creativity, curiosity, and neuroplasticity - in the spirit of psychedelics.

'Synergy Sessions' Regular casual community meet-up: at these gatherings, members feel free to unwind, ask questions or share experiences. Topics may be brought forward as a lead for us to talk about.

Special guest/collaborative events: we host talks, hold workshops, explore nature. In the past we've collaborated with various researches, artists, musicians, healers. Past events listed below.

We are a member of the Drug Science Student Network, an international network of university societies related to drug policy, science and research. We will collaborate with students nationally and internationally throughout the academic year, so become a member of our community today to join the movement!
