Psychedelic Experience Weekends

The Psychedelic Society's Psychedelic Experience Weekends allow you to explore the transformative potential of psychedelics in a safe and legal environment. The psychedelic used at the weekends is the psilocybin-containing truffle. The weekends 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.

The next Experience Weekends will take place on:

  • 27-29 April 2018
  • 25-28 May 2018
  • 22-25 June 2018
  • 19-22 July 2018
  • 30 August - 2 September 2018
  • 20-24 September 2018 (Women's Retreat)
  • 8-11 November 2018

2. Help us find a London home

The Psychedelic Society is looking for a London home. With the growing number of events and team members, we’ve decided it’s time to find a venue of our own to further serve the psychedelic community.

We envisage a venue with a large main hall to host our talks, yoga, gong baths and other events, and a separate cosy café/living room area for hanging out and socialising. Below is a description of our ideal venue:

Essential

  • Main space with wooden floor suitable for dance, capacity at least 100 seated
  • Can play music at a reasonable volume until at least 10pm (ideally later)
  • Location: central/north/east, no more than 15 minute walk from a tube station
  • Ground floor/disabled access

Important

  • Secondary space suitable as a chillout/café/social space
  • Storage space
  • Friendly neighbours
  • Somewhere we can decorate
  • Lots of natural light
  • Warm/well-insulated/well-ventilated

We’re also looking for a friendly accountant with experience of working with small nonprofit organisations. Can you help? Get in touch via enquiries@psychedelicsociety.org.uk

From May onwards, the majority of our Experience Weekends will take place over 4, rather than 3 days. We have been continually receiving feedback from participants along the lines "I only wish it could have lasted longer". So we listened and we acted! We will still only have one psychedelic ceremony but use the extra time for more in-depth preparation for and integration of the experience.

We are also excited to offer one-on-one preparation/integration sessions with our facilitators before/after Experience Weekends. This gives you the opportunity to explore in more depth any topics which you might want to work with in ceremony, or to examine, process and integrate insights. Sessions are priced at £40/hour and will generally be conducted over video chat, unless we find ourselves in the happy circumstance that both facilitator and participant live in the same place. Please feel free to email stefana.bosse@psychedelicsociety.org.uk if you have any questions.

Filming at the February Experience Weekend

Posted Mon 11th Dec 2017, 3:14pm

We are excited to announce that we will be creating a short video documentary about the Experience Weekend of 23-25 February in collaboration with our friend Miguel Cano.

Our aims are to raise awareness about the deep and transformative experiences that can take place when taking psychedelics in a safe and conscious way, and to show the wide range of people that participate in the weekends.

Of course, our first and foremost priority is and will always be to our participants, and anyone taking part can rest assured that all filming will happen with utmost sensitivity and respect. Miguel has participated in psychedelic ceremonies himself so he understands the delicate nature of the experience as well as we do. In addition, everyone featured in the final piece will be able to view the footage before it is released so they can be certain they are fully comfortable with how they feature. We want everyone participating to be happy with the final outcome.

If you feel called to be a part of this project and contribute to the psychedelic renaissance, you can apply at psychedelicsociety.org.uk/experience-weekends, noting your interest in the 'filmed February weekend' in your application. If you have applied to another weekend but would now prefer to attend the filmed February weekend, please send an email to stefana.bosse@psychedelicsociety.org.uk.

Psychedelically yours,

Stefana Bosse
Director of Experience
