Queer Psychonauts’ Integration Circle
Do you feel like the psychedelic landscape doesn't always accommodate your unique experiences and perspectives? Do you yearn for a safe and supportive space to share your entheogenic journeys, devoid of prejudice? Are you looking for a queer friendly place to process your entheogenic experiences?
Join Us On:
Jun 12, 2024, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM CDT
About the Event
Being queer in psychedelic spaces can present it’s own special challenges, from psychedelic visions to processing and integration. Come share your stories of experiencing prejudice in psychedelic spaces or share tales of acceptance and transformation. We will look at the queer psychedelic experience and identify the good and bad components that show up in these delicate spaces. Connect with a community of LGBTQ+ individuals who share your passion for altered states of consciousness. Together, we'll delve into the multifaceted aspects of queer psychedelia, illuminating both the challenges and triumphs that emerge in these delicate spaces.
Embark on a journey of self-discovery and integration in a safe and affirming space. Join us in co-creating a haven for LGBTQ+ individuals to explore the transformative power of psychedelics without fear or judgment.
*Allies are welcome and are asked to be considerate of the space they take up during shares and reflections*
*Due to the sensitive nature of integration circles, NO RECORDING is available.
**Please try to be on time as you may not be able to get in after our icebreaker because we are busy or we are waiting until a sensetive share is over.
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. If desired, 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. Use 'I' statements.
- 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) please avoid naming specific guides or retreats
- No showing stash picks or substances on camera
