The next Psychedelic Yoga & Sound Journey Meditation will take place on Wednesday 1st November.
The theme of this session is ‘The Trippers Toolkit - Yoga techniques to enhance your psychedelic journeys’. We will be practicing a range of different yogic techniques, including postures, pranayama, mantras, mudras & meditation, for explorers of consciousness to use to help navigate the psychedelic experience.
The guided meditation will be accompanied by a sound journey created with a 38” Planet Gong & 32” symphonic gong, Tibetan & crystal singing bowls, shamanic & steel tongued drums & shanti chimes.
What is Psychedelic Yoga & Sound Journey Meditation?
There are many parallels between the states of consciousness that can be reached through yoga & meditation and those during the psychedelic experience. In Psychedelic Yoga & Sound Journey Meditation, we explore the common wisdom of yoga & psychedelics, working with postures, breath-work, philosophy, meditation & sound, in a supportive and friendly environment.
The yoga postures & meditation
techniques are drawn from a wide range of
disciplines and can be practiced by all levels of

Psychedelic Yoga & Sound Journey Meditation Testimonials:
“Psychedelic yoga experience is so much more than your average yoga class. Every event is prepared and delivered with a lot of love and care and it's unique every time…Meditation, yoga, chanting and the sound bath all together was indeed a very healing beautiful treat.” Linda
“The discussion and meditation explored ideas of consciousness and perception that people who have taken psychedelics have experienced, but others might be familiar with from dreams or meditative states. It’s a really thoughtful class for anyone interested in combining aspects of diverse practices into a coherently flowing yoga and meditation session.” Stacy H
