About the event
Psychedelics can be used as powerful tools which can offer deep insights, healing or transformation. While Set (how you're feeling), Setting (where you are, who you are with) and Intention have long been seen as important preparatory considerations, one of the biggest insights of the new ‘Psychedelic Renaissance' is that without proper integration it can be difficult or unclear how to make the best of the insights we might uncover. Integration supports us to make sense of those insights and translate them into real world actions. Some psychedelic experiences can also be challenging, leaving us feeling vulnerable, fragile or overwhelmed. Sharing these experiences and having others hear and understand them, can be an important part of the integration process.
As psychedelics become more mainstream, the psychedelic community are increasingly creating community spaces where we can support one another to make sense of our psychedelic experiences. With the guidance of facilitators, the circle offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space where open conversations can happen, so we can learn from our experiences and support each other to develop, heal and grow.

What shall I bring?
We encourage you to bring an object along that has personal meaning for you. It could represent your hopes/fears about the group or relate to your psychedelic experience. We place the objects in the middle of the circle when checking in.
We also ask attendees to arrive 10 minutes before the advertised start time so we can check-in and start on time. Late arrival may result in you not being able to participate in the session.
Please be aware that the circle does not permit use of psychedelics or other psychoactive drugs during group meetings. Integration works best with a clear mind. In accordance with the law, we neither encourage substance use, provide illicit substances, nor referrals to illegal psychedelic services.
