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.
Experience Weekends will take place on:
- 25-28 May 20182
- 2-25 June 2018
- 19-22 July 2018
- 30 August - 2 September 2018
- Women's Retreat: 20-24 September 2018

- 11-14 October 2018

The Psychedelic Research Group (PRG) of Imperial College London, in collaboration with Psychedelic Survey is excited to announce the launch of three large-scale online survey studies on the effects of psychedelic drugs. With these three new surveys, the Imperial team hopes to advance our understanding of the effects of psychedelics, and so help maximise safety, awareness, and wellness. All surveys are anonymous, reaching out to people who intend to take a psychedelic drug in the near future, but each has a different focus:
- Global Psychedelic Survey: Are you planning a psychedelic experience using a classical psychedelic (e.g. LSD, ayahuasca, psilocybin) or related drug (e.g. Iboga/Ibogaine, salvia or Ketamine) in any kind of setting apart from an organized retreat or ceremony? Then Imperial’s Global Psychedelic Survey is your survey!
- Microdosing Survey: Are you planning to begin a course of microdosing soon, i.e. taking very small amounts of a psychedelic over a given period of time e.g. 4 weeks? Then check out Imperial’s microdosing survey.
- Ceremony Survey: Are you planning on participating in an organized psychedelic ceremony or psychedelic drug retreat sometime soon? If so, please consider signing up for the Psychedelic Ceremony Study, which will collect data on the psychological effects of psychedelic use in these unique settings.
