What we're about

The Psychedelic Integration Circle in Chester is an established open group offering community support and information aimed at risk reduction. We welcome adults (18+) of all ages and from diverse backgrounds who are involved in using psychedelics and plant medicines either here in the UK or abroad and who may be feeling isolated and/or confused by the material the experience brought up for them. We encourage people to join us who are thinking of trying psychedelics, again either here in the UK or abroad, so they are fully informed of the potential risks involved as well as the potential benefits. We neither condone nor condemn the use of psychedelics rather we acknowledge that psychedelics have been around since the dawn of humankind and do have healing potential, but right now, we are being swept along by the psychedelic renaissance that promises healing for depression, PTSD, substance addictions and much more. Many people have been searching all their lives for something to make them well. With limited information and, in many cases, no experience at all of psychedelics, they are paying either large amounts of money to travel to distant lands to take part in ceremonies or they are taking it upon themselves to seek out underground sitters to administer a psychedelic and take care of them throughout their trip/experience. There are so many ways in which doing this can result in more harm than good. For one, many underground trip-sitters have no understanding or knowledge of mental illness and therefor are not able to provide a safe setting or are able to contain the difficult or distressing material that frequently comes up for the tripper. We aim to support 'without judgment' individuals who have already done psychedelics and those who are planning to. We want people to be well informed and safe.
The circle opens with some Qi Gong breathing exercises and then introductions. Guests are not required to give their full names, or even their real names if they prefer not to. We then invite people to speak about their own psychedelic experiences or about their own curiosity in relation to the psychedelic experience; whether it is their search for physical healing, spiritual development, or emotional / psychological healing using psychedelics.
We ask that no one brings any illegal substances with them nor alcohol. We politely request that guests do not ask where to buy illegal substance. Attendance is free. we invite people to bring along some vegan-friendly snacks for sharing. Refreshments will be available throughout the circle.
After the circle we eat and socialize.
