What we're about

The Vienna Psychedelic Society fosters an evidence-based dialogue about the true risks and benefits of psychedelic substances.

**This meetup is NOT about the physical exchange or distribution of psychedelic drugs.**

A large body of scientific evidence has shown that psychedelic substances are extraordinarily effective in treating a broad range of mental disorders. Furthermore they have a long tradition of serving as powerful catalysts for personal growth and well-being.

The Vienna Psychedelic Society aims to cultivate an open-minded approach to non-ordinary states of consciousness and their healing potential. We provide educational information and encourage thoughtful practices that focus on intention, preparation and integration.

Our community is a safe environment for individuals to raise questions, speak frankly and find help with the integration of psychedelic experiences. We offer access to an international network of experts in order to enable national research projects and charitable work.

Holotropic Breathwork as a Gateway to Expanded States of Consciousness

Dear friends,
for the first event in 2023 we have something very special for you.
Sonja Busch, cofounder of the Holotropic Association of Europe, will give us an indepth look into Holotropic Breathwork.
Holotropic Breathwork was founded in the mid 70s by the psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Stanislav Grof and his wife Christina Grof. After many years of working with LSD and using it in a therapeutic setting with hundreds of patients, psychedelics became illegal. While looking for different means to access expanded states of consciousness, they turned to breath and music. Through elevated breathing accompanied by evocative music participants could enter into altered states of consciousness and experience healing and insight similar to LSD.
In this presentation Sonja will take us through the theory and framework of Holotropic Breathwork and point out similarities and differences to psychedelic or shamanic work. Furthermore she will explain how everything we experience is stored in our body and impacts every aspect of our life.
Don't miss this higly anticipated talk. Doors are open at 17:45 - feel free to arrive early to get the best seats and couches for a comfy evening.

The event is for free, donations are welcome.

Much love,

Sonja Busch is Grof Transpersonal Training (GTT) Coordinator in Europe, GTT teacher and together with Thomas Liska founder of the Holotropic Association of Europe.
