Featured event

We are pleased that Dr. Ben Sessa will be joining us at our next Members' Social on Saturday 2nd February. Ben is a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist working in adult addictions and with survivors of trauma. Since 2009 he has administered and received legal doses of LSD, psilocybin, MDMA, DMT and ketamine as senior research fellow at Bristol and Imperial College London Universities, and is currently conducting the UK's first clinical study with MDMA-assisted therapy for the treatment of alcohol use disorder. Alongside his supervisor, David Nutt, Ben lobbies for a change to drug prohibition policies that increase the harms of drug use and stifle opportunities for psychedelic research. He is co-founder and former Director of Breaking Convention.

Tickets (£10 low income/£15 standard) include a warm, nourishing homemade meal and the chance to connect with other members of the Psychedelic Society. Not yet a Member? Join now

Video from Psychedelics, Extinction and Social Change

The video from our recent 400-person event Psychedelics, Extinction and Social Change with Stephen Reid and Gail Bradbrook is now available, along with details of recommended reading and ways to get involved.

Experience Retreats

The Psychedelic Society's Psychedelic Experience Retreats allow you to explore the transformative potential of psychedelics in a safe and legal environment. The psychedelic used at the retreats is the psilocybin-containing truffle. The retreats 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.

This month, the Retreats featured in the Financial Times:

“By the end of the three-day retreat, I was convinced that psilocybin could be a catalyst for profound change: with one adamantine condition. Taking it should not be seen as a cure-all, but as an initiation into an arduous path of exploring parts of yourself you’d rather deny, then leveraging what you discover to change how you live.”
