Community, Education, Support
We aim to connect, educate, and support individuals who recognize the potential of psychedelic experiences for healing, personal transformation, the exploration of consciousness and scientific advancement. Our primary goal is to build a Montreal-based community of people interested in psychedelics and the exploration of non-ordinary states of consciousness. We additionally aim to educate this community on ethical practice, public policy and scientifically-grounded information about these compounds in order to contribute to their de-stigmatization and promote harm reduction approaches. Finally, we intend to provide platforms for those who are embarking on their respective journeys to receive support and share their experiences.
We value inclusivity and welcome people of all genders, sexual orientations, ethnicities, ages, abilities, and socio-economic backgrounds. Ultimately we hope to empower individuals in their psychedelic endeavours by offering the three pillars of community, education and support!
