What we're about

The Toronto Psychedelic Society (TPS) is a diverse, multidisciplinary community of academics, students, researchers, artists, therapists, teachers, counselors and others with a shared interest in psychedelics. We seek to provide more opportunity for our members to learn more about the multifaceted aspects of psychedelics.

We are a community that contributes our passion, ideas and courage to help others heal, to support psychedelic science, to educate and inform, and to have the freedom to explore our own consciousness.
We have many communities of interest:

Education: de-stigmatization, community, outreach, harm reduction

Entrepreneurs

Artists and musicians

Science: psychedelic medicine
, clinical research, fundraising

Integration: therapy, consciousness, integration and psychology

Events: communications, social media, and operations

We believe that psychedelics can be used safely when users are knowledgeable and informed. Stigmatization of users and half-baked ideas arise from ignorance. We believe in communicating fair and honest messages about the safe use of psychedelics.

We create safe spaces where we can have psychedelic conversations. We host spaces to talk about personal experiences, and sponsor supportive integration circles. We believe integration is the key to learning from psychedelic experiences.

We host a stage for the discussion and dissemination of psychedelic science. We support psychedelic research undertaken by MAPS Canada (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies), Maps (http://maps.org) USA, The Beckley Foundation, The Heffter Institute and other sources of valid scientific enquiry.

We encourage engagement. We are a community of free-thinking, open- minded people. So engage with us!

Psychedelic Integration Circle

Trinity-St. Paul's United Church and Centre for Faith, Justice and the Arts

The Toronto Psychedelic Society invites you all to come share your stories and participate in a conversation about integrating transcendent and transformative experiences. We are all coming together in a judgment-free space to talk about some of the struggles we all go through on this path into the mystery that is life, and we will explore some of the ways to cope with these experiences.

Please be aware that sending an RSVP through MeetUp.com alone does not guarantee you a space in the circle. All participants require an email from one of the facilitators confirming that they have been assigned a space.
*Without a confirmation email, you will not be granted access to the event.*
To receive a confirmation email you must do one (1) of the following:

  1. Make a contribution of $15 or more by e-transfer at least 24 hours in advance to [masked] including your email address in the message.
  2. For anyone unable to make a contribution of money or time or aren't able to make an e-transfer - have made a successful request by email detailing your circumstances.

The meeting will begin with a guided meditation. We kindly ask that latecomers wait quietly outside the room until they are invited in after the meditation.

The circle will be held at Trinity-St. Paul's Centre in the Memorial Room on the main floor.

These events often fill up fast so seating will be on a first come first served basis with a maximum capacity of 15.

About our facilitators (Thal and William):

We are a group of psychotherapists-in-training developing a psychedelic integration practice. We hope to offer support for people who are considering psychedelics as a path for healing or who have recently had transformative experiences with psychedelics, spiritual emergence, or trauma. Our approach is based on existential, transpersonal, and depth psychology and informed by our own experiences.

Thal is the co-hosts of The Soulspace podcast.

William recently received training in psychedelic integration with Ingmar Gorman and Elizabeth Neilson at The Center for Optimal Living in NYC.

We look forward to seeing you there!
