We promote the safe, informed and responsible use of psychedelics and altered states of consciousness to support healing, personal growth and the evolution of culture. PSN is a platform for the dissemination of information, promotion of evidence based advocacy and connection with an informed community and support network. Our aim is to support learning, increased awareness and a reduction of risks associated with the socially constructive use of altered states of consciousness.
What we do
The PSN believes in building an active, supportive, like-minded, psychedelic community by creating regular events to meet, share experience, and facilitate open, constructive public discussion. We organize lectures, film 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 in each of those domains to offer their insights.
We aim to foster a positive image of psychedelics and advocate for their safe, informed and socially constructive use.
We believe psychedelics are an integral part of the evolution of human consciousness, making apparent the sacredness and interconnectedness of all things, generating greater creative inspiration and fostering unity at a time when humanity appears increasingly divided and cut off from our wider ecosystem. The PSN actively collaborates with other similar organisations around the world, conducting research, promoting harm reduction and building community. We welcome anyone interested in psychedelics, experienced psychonaut or curious beginner, please get involved!
How We Got Started
Coincidentally, Marta Skvarchu and Jules Marshall both wanted to create a Dutch psychedelic society at the same time. They were inspired by the psychedelic society of the United Kingdom, which is how they found each other. They met in Amsterdam, and that’s how things got started.
Ever since the beginning, the team of volunteers has slowly been growing. Nobody is here for profit; we all just want to support the psychedelic renaissance in whatever way we can. Some people tag along for just a single project, others hang around forever. If you want to see if you can help out, you can do that here.
