Welcome to the September update!
We have a new home!
We are delighted to announce that the Psychedelic Society has a new home, the top floor of a beautiful warehouse right next to Homerton station.
The grand opening of the space will take place from 2-6pm on Saturday 29th September, and you're invited!
Come along to meet Psychedelic Society team members including Stephen Reid, Gaia Harvey Jackson, Alana Bloom, Anya Spelt, Claudia Zurawell Elliot and Lode Lhamo; learn more about our Experience Retreats and campaign plans; and experience tasters of some of the events we'll be running in the space.
Tickets to this event are by donation. RSVP at http://psychedelicsociety.org.uk/grand-opening
Help make the new space a success
The new space represents a significant financial commitment for the Psychedelic Society. For it to work out, we really need to fulfil our goal of reaching 1,000 regular donors over the next few months.
If you believe in the work of the Psychedelic Society and want to continue to see us grow, please consider making a regular donation via http://psychedelicsociety.org.uk/support. Due to popular demand, we've added a new £3/month tier so you can support us for the price of a tea/coffee/pint/tub of organic hummus each month 😉

Some areas that we feel we could be doing better on:
- Fundraising (including hitting our goal of 1000 regular donors and support on an up-and-coming crowdfunding campaign)
- Events marketing (making sure all our events sell out, probably by spending some money on paid advertising)
- Merchandise (expanding our range of products and increasing our sales)
Some key points about how we work:
- We are inspired by the Teal paradigm
- Everyone in the organisation is paid at the same rate of £15/hour
- We track time and work as much or as little as we desire and seems useful (most of us end up working 2-3 days/week on average)
- Ideally you'd be able to work from our new space in Homerton, London at least some of the time
If you have experience in these areas and are interested in working with us, get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.With love,
The Psychedelic Society team
