DAOstack Community Onboarding
The Psychedelic Society is delighted to be one of the first organisations to have been invited to try Alchemy by DAOstack, a blockchain-based participatory/collaborative budgeting tool. In the near future, we intend to put a significant percentage of our membership donations into Alchemy each month. Members will be able to make proposals for how the money should be spent, and vote on proposals to determine which pass/fail.
On this date, Nave Rachman and Stratis Karadakis from DAOstack will be giving an Community Onboarding Session on DAOstack/Alchemy via an online webinar, with the opportunity to ask questions. The webinar is open to Psychedelic Society members. If you're already a member, you can book a place, otherwise please first become a member.
Our Experience Retreats are the longest standing psilocybin retreats in Europe, with an average rating of 4.8/5 from 303 reviews. The retreats take place in a range of group sizes from 10-20 people. 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. Just 39 places remain for retreats until the end of the year. Read more and apply

Our space in Homerton is now open for co-working during the day. More than just desk space, we offer morning yoga, communal lunches, afternoon meditations and skillshares with the intention of creating a thriving community.
“What an excellent example of how all work places should be. An inspiring place where you feel safe to be yourself. A place that enhances ones creativity, energy and self esteem with yoga, meditation, hugs and skill sharing. A true community.”
— Victoria Nygart, Study Manager at the Imperial College London Psychedelic Research Group
