What we're about

Welcome to PsychedeLiA: Psychedelic Experience Integration in Los Angeles!

We are an inclusive community interested in psycho-spiritual uses of psychedelics and plant medicines. Together we offer and receive emotional support to those who have experimented with mind-altering substances and other states of consciousness. We share integration practices that encourage a sound return to a balanced state following psychedelic experiences. We also learn about the myriad ways psychedelics are currently used for various therapeutic purposes in shamanism and science alike. Locally, our events include sharing circles, shamanic workshops, educational courses, medicine retreats and more - all about safety, education and connection.

Zendo Stereo Transcendental Music Meditation

Thymele Arts

$33.00

WANT TO TRY A MUSIC MEDITATION JOURNEY? Get in a state of flow, enhance your intuition and creativity, recharge yourself to be the best version of you, find new depths of relaxation and insight in this 1-hour music fueled meditation. There’s scientific evidence that music can be as powerful in reducing depression, stress, and anxiety as psychotherapy. For thousands of years mankind has used music. Often it’s been the preserve of the medicine man or shaman, with a transformative, almost magical function. Today, neuroscience enables us to see how music activates every part of the brain you can imagine: language, emotions, memory. TIME: May 28, 2019 Doors Open: 6:30pm Event: 7:00pm - 9:00pm LOCATION: Thymele Arts - 5481 Santa Monica Boulevard, 2nd Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90029 COST: $33 GET YOUR TICKET HERE: https://www.eventbrite.com/o/psychedelia-psychedelic-experience-integration-los-angeles-12809811362 WHAT TO BRING: Small pillow & blanket, we provide everything else. WHAT IS ZENDO STEREO? Zendo Stereo is a transcendental listening experience. Using wireless headphones (for full immersion and perfect acoustic placement), air pads (for comfort), sub-bass speakers (for full body sound) and eye masks (to block out all visual input), we guide people thru a 70-minute musical journey that is part musical meditation and part psychedelic experience, bending time and inner space to explore our hidden potential. Each Zendo Stereo is unique, with a live “3d sound mix” in which the music is manipulated for a one of a kind experience. There are many “flow enhancing” aspects (neurochemical balance, relaxation & entrancement, enhancement of creativity and intuition, etc…), as well as therapeutic benefits of such a guided deep dive.

The Psychedelic Psychopharmacology Lecture Series: 1st Session of 5

OVERVIEW: This 5-part workshop series is geared toward providing a foundation for understanding the psychopharmacology and clinical research of the most commonly encountered psychedelic compounds as well as practical information for safe psychedelic use. The series is designed to build upon knowledge gained in previous installments so is recommended to attend them all for an optimal learning experience. Seating is limited so sign up today! DATES: 6/24/19, 7/25/19, 8/29/19, 9/26/19, 10/24/19 TIME: Doors Open: 6:30pm Event Begins: 7:00pm - 9:00pm LOCATION: Thymele Arts - 5481 Santa Monica Blvd., 2nd Floor, Los Angeles 90029 SERIES DESCRIPTION: I. June 24: Intro to Psychedelic Psychopharmacology This first installment in this series is meant to give the participant a foundation that can be used throughout the rest of the series to understand the pharmacology of different types of psychedelic substances. We will begin with an overview of serotonin pharmacology before discussing the two major classes of ‘classic psychedelics’: tryptamines and phenethylamines. From there, we’ll introduce psychedelics that work on different neurotransmitter systems such as ibogaine and ketamine. This installment will finish with a summary of the neuroscientific research that has been conducted with various psychedelics. II. July 25: Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy (PAP): MDMA & Psilocybin Both MDMA & psilocybin are being studied as experimental therapies in combination with psychotherapy approaches. Additionally, the FDA has designated them both as ‘fast track’ or ‘breakthrough’ therapies. In the second installment, an intro to psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy will be given prior to a discussion of MDMA & psilocybin assisted psychotherapies. III. August 29: Psychedelics & Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors: DMT & 5-MeO-DMT Monoamine Oxidase (MAO) is an important metabolic enzyme involved in the metabolism of several neurotransmitters and tryptamine psychedelics such as DMT and 5-MeO-DMT. While inhibition of this enzyme is critical to making DMT orally active as part of the mechanism of ayahuasca, it can be unsafe and even lethal to combine other drugs or psychedelics with MAO inhibitors (MAOIs). The third installment of the series will focus on the combination of monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) with psychedelics as well as other drugs. IV. September 26: Psychedelics Beyond Serotonin: Ibogaine & Ketamine While most psychedelics produce their effects by modulating serotonin, there are exceptions of worthy mention including ibogaine and ketamine. While vastly different in their effects, both ibogaine and ketamine appear to modulate either glutamate or opioid systems. Ibogaine is often touted for its powerful anti-addictive properties, although it carries risks of cardiotoxicity. Ketamine has built a strong evidence base in the treatment of depression, amongst other refractory conditions. V. October 24: Psychedelics & Psychotropics: Mechanisms of Drug Interaction The fifth and last installment in this series will focus exclusively on the potential for drug interactions between psychedelics discussed in installments I–IV & other medications or supplements people may be using. It is recommended to attend installments I–IV to allow for optimal understanding of materials covered in this installment.
