What we're about

The Grand Rapids Psychedelic Society aims to connect individuals in West Michigan who have an interest in psychedelic experiences. In creating a space for these individuals to come together, we seek to nurture productive dialogues about the utility of psychedelics for various purposes. Our hope is through repeated in-person interactions, the Grand Rapids Psychedelic Society will foster a community-wide conversation about the growing importance of psychedelics.

We invite you to join us for these meetings. Whether you’re an experienced psychonaut or an individual who is simply curious about learning more, the Grand Rapids Psychedelic Society will be a space for you to build community with other psychedelic users.

Important Note:

Discussion of psychedelic substances is protected under the First Amendment. Any individual who attempts to solicit illicit substances will be asked to leave, and permanently barred from attending future events.

Also, in creating a space for all individuals, we encourage discretion when discussing events with other people in the community. Please do not use names of individuals who speak about their personal experiences unless explicit permission is granted. Due to the cultural stigma still attached to psychedelic substances, it is challenging enough for people to speak openly about their personal experiences.

This week's meeting

We will discuss rituals and psychedelics. This could be as simple as having a routine you follow before having a psychedelic experience, or as complex as a long fast modeled on ancient traditions. Set and setting have a strong influence on the effects of psychedelics, we will discuss how ritual fits into that understanding. We'll have a few famous rituals to discuss as well.
