What we're about

Vision:

The Austin Psychedelic Society connects individuals who aim to balance the public conversation about the utility of psychedelics for various purposes. Our interest is to foster the spread of accurate information and give a new face to psychedelia.

Through repeated in-person interactions, the Austin Psychedelic Society seeks to nurture a community-wide conversation about the growing importance of psychedelics. Mission:

After 40+ years of misinformation, propaganda, and destructive prohibition, psychedelic substances are undergoing a re-emergence in our cultural zeitgeist.

This phenomena has occurred in two primary spheres:

1. Research for issues like PTSD, depression, addiction, and anxiety.

2. Within start-up and entrepreneurial circles.

Austin Psychedelic Society plans to create space for individuals to discuss various aspects of the psychedelic experience. Specifically, we aim to provide individuals a platform to discuss how these experiences have contributed to transformations in their personal and professional lives.

Our meet-ups will focus on various aspects of psychedelia, including:

Stories from meet-up attendees about their personal psychedelic experiences.

Informal discussions about topics like a post-prohibition world, microdosing, the role of psychedelics in catalyzing social change, and much more.

Talks from various leaders within the psychedelic sphere - including researchers, writers, entrepreneurs, and policy makers.

Viewings of documentaries and discussions of psychedelic-related books. Our meet-ups should avoid advocating for any one idea or plan of action, and instead, remain open-minded, tolerant, and adaptable. 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 Austin Psychedelic Society is a space for you to build community with other psychedelic enthusiasts.

Important Note:

Discussion of psychedelic substances is protected under the First Amendment. Austin Psychedelic Society does not encourage illegal activities. Austin Psychedelic Society is not a place to seek, encourage, or participate in the procurement of controlled substances. Do not bring, buy, sell, transfer, or arrive on any illegal substances (including cannabis), or swap information on how to buy them. Any information we provide is for education and information only. This meet-up is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.

Members who violate these basic house rules will be removed from the group and will not be allowed to attend future events. The emphasis for this group will be on psychedelic education, science, and policy reform. Please keep our community space safe. Thank you!

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.

Integration Meeting

Location visible to members

We will be having an integration meeting! This is a meeting mainly letting people share their experiences and seek help integrating their experiences into everyday life. I know sometimes it can be a little scary dealing with “reality” and sometimes we may be frustrated with figuring out what our experiences mean to us. This is also just a great place to share your positive experiences as well! It is often hard to share experiences with those who have not participated in a psychedelic journey, so feel free to share your positive experiences as well. No need to have any psychedelic experiences before. These are open meetings for experienced psychonauts as well as those who has no experience at all. It’s all about education and sharing. I have reserved the space until 7:30, but we can always meander to a local restaurant or bar afterwards if people would like to continue the conversation. DO NOT ASK ABOUT HOW TO PROCURE ANY LEGAL SUBSTANCES AT THIS EVENT. DO NOT BRING ANY ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES TO THE EVENT. ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT WE DO NOT CONDONE THE USE OF ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES, BUT WE ARE INTERESTED IN ASSISTING THOSE WHO DO TAKE THESE SUBSTANCES IN SAFE USE EDUCATION. WE ARE ALSO NOT AFFILIATED WITH ANY MEDICAL PRACTICE AND DO NOT RECOMMEND PSYCHEDELIC USE AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT. We are trying to maintain a professional representation of this breakthrough science in order to de-stigmatize the public opinion of psychedelic use and benefits. Feel free to ask me any questions and I look forward to meeting everyone! We will probably go grab drinks after so people can continue their conversations and network. I’m thinking about meeting at St. Arnold's Brewery after the meetup. If you want to join us there afterwards just to mingle we usually get there around 8PM.
