Daniel Jabbour Bicycle Day Memorial Celebration

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Daniel Jabbour, Founder of the Psychedelic Society of San Francisco, passed away in a tragic accident last Sunday. We invite anyone who would like to pay their respects to join us Saturday, April 19, directly before the 1st Annual Bicycle Day Parade for a celebration of Daniel’s life. Come dressed in your psychedelic finest—black is discouraged. Hippie Hill is in Golden Gate Park near Haight and Stanyan, through the tunnel and on your right. 

Though moving forward without Daniel will not be easy, we are committed to keeping the Psychedelic Society alive and active. In the upcoming weeks, we will be reaching out to you all to ensure that the group’s leadership transition happens as smoothly and seamlessly as possible. 

Sincerely,

Mischa Steiner
Co-Organizer, Psychedelic Society of San Francisco

    Such sad news. Does anyone know what happened? Will the Society continue to exist? I sure hope so.

    Daniel had an infectious laugh and an amazing spirit. It was at my very first meetup years ago with the PSF that I met two of my now best friends in SF. Daniel's amazing inteligence and of knowledge of the subject matter really helped put me at ease with enthiogens/psychedelics and he helped give me the tools to explore further and perhaps a bit of the courage too as well. He would readily share a hug too. He was in fact eminently huggable which I took full advantage of every time I saw him. I'll miss him and feel a tremendous sense of loss at the potential of our burgeoning friendship. I hope your last trip was out of this world and beyond Daniel!

    I wish I could be there physically, but I'll be there in spirit. Daniel, your bright star will be missed - how I wish I could have seen you one last time to let you know what a truly great service you have performed.

    I’m stunned and not sure how to respond. I feel the best thing I can do is continue to promote the work that Daniel started. I will be at the memorial in festive colors. Peace and Blessings to you Daniel. We will carry the band forward acknowledging your spirit

    I moved from SF a couple of months ago so regret I will be unable to attend this event. My deepest condolences to Daniel's natal family, friends, and to the psychedelic community worldwide--we have lost a truly wonderful personality.

    Daniel and I were setting up an interview I wanted to do with him. I am so sad to have not gotten the chance to listen to him speak and to converse with him further about his work in this community. He will not be forgotten.

    Daniel, you were so courageous... I hope your passage continues to be full of light, love and learning.

    I am so sad to hear this news. It was just last week that we were talking about working on future events together. He was such a visionary -- totally dedicated to spreading the gospel so that mankind could grow in consciousness. This hit me like a rock this morning. I am just getting over the death of another great soul, Michael Ruppert who took his life over the weekend. I wish them both peace and blessings on their next journey. They will sorely be missed.

    Oh wow..I met him at the Psychedelic Science Conference last year, where we had a really nice conversation and he convinced me to join, even though I am not US-based..So sad to hear that news :(

    I hadn't even had a chance to meet Daniel in person but just had a wonderful conversation with him over the phone on Friday. So saddened and shocked to hear this news. I salute Daniel for all he was trying to accomplish and hope that the Society can continue in his honor.

    What a loss. He surrounded himself with visionaries; let's hope he continues that wherever he is now. After accomplishing so much in such a short time, you will be missed, Daniel.
