The Psychedelic Society is honoured to host a conversation between three of the UK's leading thinkers on psychedelics and spirituality: Rupert Sheldrake, Robin Carhart-Harris and Stephen Reid at the beautiful EartH, Hackney, in our biggest public event to date. Expect a free-flowing, generative, multidisciplinary dialogue. More information and tickets

The Ayahuasca Symposium is a holistic event, integrating academic and spiritual wisdom, to provide the audience with a thorough introduction to the sacred Amazonian plant medicine ayahuasca. The full-day program incorporates 9 speakers, a sacred ayahuasca ceremonial music concert with 6 acoustic musicians plus a DJ Set, a Palo Santo & Mapacho smudging ceremony, a Cacao ceremony, 2 vegan meals, and plenty of time for community connection. The Symposium will be the largest ever event dedicated to ayahuasca to have happened in London, and will be held at the beautiful Old Hackney Baths. More information and tickets

Women’s Beltane Retreat

Beltane marks the midpoint between spring and summer, a time of re-awakening our inner fire and rejoicing in the fertility of the season. Seizing this peak moment of the year to celebrate life, ignite our creativity and bask in the bliss that comes with gathering amongst women, we invite you (or a woman in your life) to join us in re-charging, renewing and rewilding our souls in this psilocybin-assisted retreat from 1-5 May 2019.
