2. New UK psilocybin mushroom/truffle supervision service

If you're going to consume psilocybin-containing mushrooms or truffles, it's safest to do so in the presence of an experienced supervisor. If you are already in possession of psilocybin mushrooms or truffles, and are already set on consuming them, you may apply for our new UK mushroom/truffle supervision service.

If your application is accepted, we'll liase with you to find a suitable time and place in the UK for you to take the mushrooms/truffles under supervision. Read more and apply

August update

Posted Wed 3rd Aug 2016, 5:35pm

Welcome to the August update! You may have noticed that I didn’t send an update in July, a consequence of having been lucky enough to spend an amazing month at Nowhere and Borderland.

The much-anticipated Psychedelics and Nonduality took place on Sunday, and it didn’t disappoint. There are some photos in this album, with video and slides to be uploaded shortly. Keep an eye out over the coming days for details of our next event at Conway Hall.

1. Psychedelic Experience Weekends now open to individuals

We're pleased to announce that our Experience Weekends are now open to individuals. The next weekend takes place 2-4 September near Amsterdam and costs £300. Read more and apply.
