Welcome to the February update! With your help, the Psychedelic Society is going from strength to strength, with the number of members up 60% since the start of the year, the majority of our events selling out, successful Experience Retreats happening several times a month and increased interest from both press and policy makers. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events.
The Psychedelic Society's Psychedelic Experience Retreats allow you to explore the transformative potential of psychedelics in a safe and legal environment. The psychedelic used at the retreats is the psilocybin-containing truffle. The retreats take place monthly in the Netherlands, where psilocybin truffles are legal, in groups of 10-15.
Some participants have little or no prior experience with psychedelics, whilst others may be relatively experienced yet are attracted by the group setting, and/or the idea of taking psychedelics in an intentional way at a potentially higher dose than before.
Feedback from the past month:
"I felt completely safe and comfortable. It's one of the few times I can remember that I felt complete trust and faith in the process and the people... it was magical, and so much more that I expected or hoped for."
"The facilitators did an excellent job of making everyone feel at ease, and helping to allay any fears about the experience... This retreat has been the most valuable 'learning' of my entire life."
"The whole experience from start to finish was wonderful, in the truest sense of the word. The facilitators were genuinely some of the most authentically loving, kind and wise people I've ever met. The activities were well thought out and well delivered. The food and setting were excellent. The mushroom experience was undescribably good. And the lessons and resulting sense of inner price was priceless."
"Every single thing was perfectly thought out and flowed beautifully. The facilitators were the most beautiful, intelligent, loving, compassionate people. The vegan food was delightful, nourishing, beautiful, every bite tasted like the most special food ever. I could not have dreamed that this retreat would be this wonderful from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. It will stay with me for a very long time. I will do all I can do to keep it alive in my body and soul forever. Thank you!"

New version of Psychedelic Survey
Our friends at Psychedelic Survey have released a new version of the site, featuring a search engine for psychedelic research, a Results page and an explainer video with Michael Pollan.
Multiple studies are still open for participation. If you, or someone you know, are planning a psychedelic experience, participating in one of the studies will help science gain a better understanding of these facinating compounds, and how they can be used more safely and effectively.
