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!

1. Be respectful of others. To allow a safe and comfortable experience for everyone, please be courteous to each other, the hosts, and allow everyone a chance to participate. Do not dominate the conversation.

2. Do not incriminate yourself. To facilitate safe discussion, extra care must be taken with sharing things online, and this especially includes video conferencing. Do not ask others questions which may inadvertently cause them to incriminate themselves.

3. No sourcing illegal substances. Please do not request, or offer illegal substances to others, or information on how to acquire them. These meetings are for sharing information about plant medicines, as well as personal experiences.
