About the Event

Are you wanting to tell your friends, family, or doctor about your psychedelic experiences? Have you struggled with coming out about psychedelic use in a hostile social environment? Do you feel isolated in your exploration of entheogens and want to talk to like minded folks who understand the difficulty of speaking about this taboo topic?

In this safe space, we will explore the challenges of sharing psychedelic exploration with peers, family, and medical professionals. We will work on processing the emotional charge that comes with sharing vulnerable psychedelic stories with less receptive people. We’ll talk about strategies to present psychedelics in your social sphere by skillfully bringing them into conversations. Knowing the when, what, and why of sharing psychedelic interests can promote healthy conversation and support authentic connection.

Integration Circle Rules

After our ICE-BREAKER, we will open up the circle 1st to people who would like to integrate a specific experience. Shares are given up to 5 min. we will then ask if the person would like to receive reflections and we will open the floor for 2-3 reflections. At that point we will then move to the next share.

If no one feels called to share a personal experience we will open the circle to questions and general conversations. Please limit shared times to allow responses.

We are also going to ask everyone to:

- Speak from personal perspective

- No Advice Giving

- Bring an open mind

- Confidentiality “what happens in Zoom, stays in Zoom”

- No Recording of ANY kind

- Silence all electronic devices

- Avoid distractive behavior: eating, multitasking, driving

- Mute mic when not talking

- avoid crosstalk

- Participation! We request that everyone participates on some level. That can look like: just turning on your camera, or participating in the check in verbally or via the chat. This is for the comfort of the group and everyone who is showing up and sharing vulnerably

- No Solicitation of Substances or Promotion of Retreats (see disclaimer)
