Upcoming events

Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate our birthday at our first-ever festival! Now into our 6th year, we continue to offer a packed programme of events...

Featured event

The Work That Reconnects is an internationally-celebrated programme of teachings and interactive processes helping to wake us up to the hope and potential for global healing at this time of climate and ecological crisis.

Together with local rebels and global activists, we will flow through a weekend of ritual, storytelling and embodied exercises. The Work That Reconnects is composed of teachings on deep ecology, living systems theory, and spiritual traditions and is a community building process that grows our courage, resilience, and solidarity. It helps to clarify the survival skills - like community building and tending to our grief - that are needed for navigating the chaotic times ahead, as well as the unique roles we each can play in the Great Turning.

Green Party commits to legal regulation

The Green Party is the first party to publish its manifesto, and happily it includes a specific commitment to "Regulate access for adults to stimulant and psychedelic drugs based on the evidence around harm reduction through pharmacies, after a safety consultation with a qualified pharmacist, at fixed doses and fixed prices." Times are changing!

We'll keep you up to date with the other manifestos in future emails, but in the mean time, pleeease register to vote so you can vote for a party that supports the decriminalisation and/or legal regulation of psychedelic substances. Registration closes on 26th November; don't delay, register today!

Visit to the Grocycle mushroom farm

The Psychedelic Society's founder Stephen Reid recently visited the Grocycle mushroom farm near his new home in Devon. Watch the video and learn more about Grocycle's online courses on Home Growing and Low Tech Mushroom Farming.

Experience Retreats

Our Experience Retreats are the longest standing psilocybin retreats in Europe, with an average rating of 4.8/5 from 359 reviews. 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.

The November and December retreats are now fully booked, but places remain for retreats from January-April 2019. Read more and apply

Co-working update

The co-working space is blossoming, as you'll see in our new video. We are re-imagining the workspace in a way that promotes co-creation and community. We believe a conscious co-working space, attentive to self-care and good vibes, is conducive to focused, meaningful, and productive work.

"I love that the people are so warm and friendly and there’s a great vibe of focus and creativity... In just a few days I’ve already gotten loads more work done there than in weeks spent trying to work at home!"

— Emily Sidonie Grossman, Science Communicator & Broadcaster
