We believe that the conscious use of psychedelics can help create a more compassionate and joyful world.

Psychedelics have been used by humans for thousands of years for healing and spiritual development. After decades of misinformation, and outlawing on political as opposed to scientific grounds, the potential of these substances is starting to be recognised again. We exist to reinstate the public understanding of and access to psychedelics in the UK and beyond.

New to psychedelics?

Psychedelics (from the Greek psyche: mind, delos: make visible, reveal) are substances that induce a heightened state of consciousness characterised by a hyperconnected brain state. Studies suggest psychedelics could be a breakthrough therapy for mental health issues including depression, anxiety, addiction, OCD, and PTSD through their ability to work on a deep emotional as well as biological level.
