What we're about

The Baltimore Psychedelic Society is dedicated to psychedelic inquiry, harm reduction, and addressing Baltimore-centered issues through community engagement and education.

We are committed to creating and fostering an inclusive community where all races, genders, gender identities, religions, sexual orientations, ages, and abilities are valued, respected, safe, and empowered.

This is a network of people interested in psychedelic medicine and other healing modalities such as meditation, breathwork, bodywork and movement. Baltimore Psychedelic Society exists to provide education & harm reduction resources to the public and to foster community by creating unique events for meeting like-minded people. This page is not to be used for the sale/acquisition of illicit substances. Please keep our community safe!

Like mushrooms emerging after the rain, the global network of psychedelic societies is rising up as a public forum and voice for all the people who appreciate psychedelics.

1. Respect Everyone's Privacy
Being part of this group requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What's shared in the group should stay in the group.

2. Be Kind and Courteous
We're all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let's treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.

3. No Solicitation of Illegal Substances
It is not appropriate to source illegal substances from this group. Any such posts will be removed immediately and the person in violation of this rule may be subject to removal from the group.

4. No cultivation or production questions
This is not a forum to discuss cultivation or production of illegal substances. Any such posts will be removed and the person in violation of this rule may be subject to removal from the group.

5. No Images Of Your Personal Stash
We want to have a safe place for everyone to discuss personal journeys but do not post pictures of your stash.

6. Judgement Free Zone
Make sure everyone feels safe and accepted. Degrading or derogatory comments of any kind will not be tolerated. This is a judgement free zone.

7. Again, No Solicitation, Cultivation or Production.
Do not use this group or our events to buy, sell, share, obtain or distribute medicines, drugs, sacraments, or anything of the sort.

Sacred Women's Circle

Link visible for attendees

A Women's Circle is a safe and sacred space for women to come together and embrace each other's uniqueness, use our voices to express what we need and hold space for one another as we share our lived experiences.

Women have been gathering in circles throughout history. When we participate in a women’s circle, we carry on the tradition of our female ancestors by forming a sacred community to celebrate the feminine.
Our women’s circle welcomes all humans, cis or trans, who feel themselves to be a woman. We hope to have a wide variety of generations represented in our circles so that we may learn from one another throughout the various stages of life.

The women’s circle gives each participant a chance to speak their truth without judgment. We embrace women as our sisters by lifting each other up. Sharing with supportive, empowering women can help to release our burdens and lighten our load. When women gather and speak their truth, it is a powerful thing that can create dramatic shifts within ourselves, within our families and within our communities.

The women’s circle is a chance to focus on self-love. We are taking the time to nurture ourselves. The circle is a time to rest, to connect with sisters, and focus on physical, mental and spiritual well being. It is a time for healing.

We welcome you, exactly as you are.

The circles are facilitated by Kiley and Mandi. We will meet virtually on the first Monday of every month from 7pm-8:30pm. We will also hold in-person gatherings occasionally so that we can find deeper connection to one another.

We will begin with Community Guidelines, introductions and a brief meditation to bring us all together. The rest is up to us to co-create together.

BIPOC Integration Circle

Link visible for attendees

The Baltimore Psychedelic Society is excited to announce another offering. Hyun, Nyx, and Arthur will be facilitating a BIPOC centered integration circle that will allow for an intentionally safer and connective space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to meet in community, share experiences, and offer/receive support. This circle is meant for exploration and expansion! ☺️🙏🏼

📅: Tuesday June 6th 7:00 PM EST - 9:00 PM EST on Zoom

As a psychedelic society we see the importance of having intentional spaces free of shame and judgement to provide containers for deep vulnerability. Sometimes healing needs to start with our own communities that have both lived and shared experience, especially when it comes to race. Through values of harm reduction, education, community involvement, and support we can continue to grow and work towards collective healing and empowerment.

***For healing purposes and reasons, please understand and respect that this is a BIPOC ONLY event*** If you do not identify as Black, Indigenous, or a Person of color, we humbly ask that you please do not attend ☺️

Integrating Psychosis, Mania, Kundalini, and other Spontaneous Altered States

Link visible for attendees

Have you ever experienced a spontaneous alteration of your conscious state without intentionally inducing it? Whether it took the form of what society may label a psychotic break, a schizophrenic episode, a manic episode, a kundalini experience, a difficult meditation, a trip not ending when it was expected to, or something else that defies classification, this circle is a place to share, integrate, and find community around those experiences in a non-judgmental environment.

Stanislov and Christina Grof characterized some of these states as 'spiritual emergencies', rather than something to be pathologized. As with psychedelic states, spontaneous spiritual experiences can have much to teach us and can be a massive catalyst for growth, learning, and transformation. It can be difficult to go through and subsequently integrate these experiences alone, or with people that don't understand them. By connecting with others over these experiences, we can begin to heal the wounds of alienation that often accompany them.

Psychedelics are increasingly being accepted by society, but inducing the states they offer is a personal choice. If we are going to accept people voluntarily inducing these states, then it is far past time for society to stop stigmatizing similar experiences when they happen outside of an individual's control. I hope that by sharing our experiences with each other, these conversations can begin the work of ending that stigma - including any we may have internalized.

If you have a family member or loved one who has experienced any of these states and would like to attend to reach a better understanding of their experience, you may still attend even if you haven't experienced one of these states yourself.

This group cannot offer medical assistance or advice, and we are not trained professionals.

Ecstatic Dance in the Garden

Zen garden

Join us for an evening of art and community in a beautiful, natural setting. We are thrilled to be back n the beautiful Zen Meditation Garden with James Nasty for this unique event!

Ecstatic Dance has been a form of creative expression throughout human history. It provides a chance to lose yourself in the rhythmic beat of the music, allowing your body to express itself and move freely in whatever way it desires. Dance is a way to experience life fully and completely in the present moment, and can bring profound meditative and even trance-like states. Dance can bring a greater connection to ourselves, mind, body and spirit, and it helps deepen our connection with others. It is a way to relieve stress and get in touch with emotions. This is a sober event, so that you can allow yourself to fully experience everything that comes up.

We will begin with a community circle, to set a few basic expectations and guidelines so that everyone feels safe and supported throughout this event. We will begin to move and stretch our bodies together, then as the music begins, we will explore movement on our own. We will also end with a community circle to close and share our experiences.

Now onto the music! We are excited to be partnering with James Nasty again for this event! Baltimore, Maryland resident James Nasty excels at producing and DJing Baltimore club music while maintaining roots in turntablism and open format Djing. Nasty is locally iconic and globally respected. Voted the Best DJ In a Club in the Baltimore City Paper twice, hes favored by Bmore club inventor Scottie B and is in heavy rotation during legends KW Griff and Pork Chops club mixes on Baltimore radio station 92Q. Globally, he's spun for Boiler Room and gained support from the likes of Bassnectar, Mace Pled, A-Trak, GTA, Anna Lunoe, Sirius XM Shade 45s DJ Wonder, L-Vis 1990, Dj Uniique, Dave Nada / Nadastrom, Gorgon City and more. Time Out Singapore says "Stop being so serious and get loose to James Nasty. This is the kind of stuff coming out of Baltimore that's really popular but still manages to break all the rules.
