Featured events

Join an incredible line up of panellists including Dr David Luke, Dr Oliver Robinson, Charlie Morley, Anthony Peak, Luciana Haill, Graham Nicholls and Jade Shaw for a screening of Insight Out, an exploration of the meaning, practicalities and transformational effects of out-of-body experiences – common during psychedelic experiences, and now of increasing interest to the scientific community. Click here to secure your place.

On Thursday March 26th, the Psychedelic Society is proud to be participating in Fantastic Fungi Day, screening the film Fantastic Fungi directed by award-winning filmmaker and pioneer of time-lapse photography, Louie Schwartzberg. We will be showing Fantastic Fungi at The Genesis Cinema in London, joining over 500 cinemas around the globe screening the film on the same day. A few tickets remain; if they sell out, put your name down on the waitlist to be the first to hear about future screenings.

The fourth edition of the Interdisciplinary Conference on Psychedelic Research (ICPR) takes place from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 April 2020 in the beautiful city of Haarlem, The Netherlands. ICPR 2020 is an interdisciplinary conference on psychedelic research where leading researchers and therapists will discuss the latest developments in psychedelics research and therapeutic applications. We are pleased to offer 10 discounted tickets on a first-come-first-serve basis to our community. Use code 63GKH84C to claim the discount at icpr2020.net


We are pleased to be supporting the #ThankYouPlantMedicine movement, created as a response to the continuing stigma in society about the use of psychoactive plants and therapy-assisted psychedelics. In partnership with over 90 organizations from 68 countries, @thankyouplantmedicine is coordinating a global wave of gratitude today, 20/02/2020, calling on people to “come out” with their stories of healing and transformation using the hashtag #ThankYouPlantMedicine.

Experience Retreats

Our Experience Retreats are the longest standing psilocybin retreats in Europe, with an average rating of 4.8/5 from 394 ratings. 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. Places are available at retreats from March - August. Read more and apply
