About the Psychedelic Society

The Psychedelic Society believes that the conscious use of psychedelics can help us create a more compassionate and joyful world through the healing and growth of the individual.

Psychedelics have been used by humans for tens of thousands of years for healing and spiritual development. After decades of misinformation, and outlawing on political as opposed to scientific grounds, the potential of these substances is starting to be recognised again. We exist to reinstate the public understanding of and access to psychedelics in the UK and beyond.

We support related practices, including meditation, breathwork, sound healing, dance, yoga, time spent in the wild and nondual contemplation, and offer many of these activities through our events programme.

We have close relationships with other organisations and individuals in the movement, including the psychedelic research teams at Imperial and King’s College London, the Beckley Foundation, DrugScience, Volteface, Transform and MAPS.
