In this new era of psychedelic practice and in recognition of current scientific research providing evidence for the benefits of these substances – backed up by our own personal explorations – we have established the Psychedelic Society of the Netherlands as a meeting platform for people interested in learning more about psychedelics.
The Psychedelic Society of the Netherlands supports psychedelic use as a tool for greater conscious awakening.
We advocate for safe, responsible and informed use of psychedelics as a means for exploring non-ordinary states of consciousness, for therapeutic and developmental purposes.
We believe in building a like-minded, psychedelic community by creating regular events to meet and where we also hope to generate open public discussion.
The Society organizes events related to the psychedelic experience. These are lectures, movie screenings, music events, art classes, and discussion groups. We take an integrative approach, discussing the social, cultural and scientific aspects of psychedelics—this includes inviting experts and those with extensive personal experience to weigh in on the subject. We provide opportunities for open discussions with experts in the field including writers, scientists, therapists and people with extensive personal experience.
We aim to foster a positive image of psychedelics and advocate for their safe, careful and informed use. We believe psychedelics can help us evolve as individuals and as a society, making apparent the sacredness and interconnectedness of all things, generating greater inspiration and unity at a time when it is sorely needed. In smaller – even imperceptible ‘micro-doses’ – growing scientific research is showing that psychedelics have great potential in treating many problems that elude pharmaceutical medicine.
We are actively collaborating with other Psychedelic Societies around the world to spread good news, safe practices, share speakers and reliable information about these amazing evolutionary substances. We welcome anyone interested in psychedelics, experienced or simply curious. We are committed to diversity and people from all backgrounds are welcome—so please get involved!
