    Meet up: Perth

    Hey there Perth People The Australian Psychedelic Society's new chapter in Perth presents the fourth seminar in the Perth Altered States Series which explores the relationships between psychedelic experiences and contemplative practices such as mindfulness meditation. The idea of a connection between psychedelic states and Eastern meditative practices has persisted since the early days of psychedelic science. Recent research has documented psychological and neural commonalities between psychedelic and meditative states, and synergistic interactions between psychedelic ingestion and meditative practice. Moreover, psychedelic-assisted psychotherapies sometimes employ concepts (such as “psychological flexibility”) that have strong connections to contemplative practices. The session will be led by Dr Chris Letheby and Tobias Penno, both of whom have conducted academic research into connections between psychedelics and contemplative practices. Letheby and Penno will present and explore philosophical, scientific, and clinical perspectives on the relationships between psychedelics and contemplative practices such as mindfulness. WHEN: Sunday 27th Jun 2021, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm AWST WHERE: The University of Western Australia TICKETS: https://events.humanitix.com/altered-states-series-workshop-three-citizen-research-meditation?fbclid=IwAR1UdaBMEnc43Nv1ryGsP1aCPLytM6eydSG_g5cpn0LRkeDGHp19BNCXAvI

    CACTUS DAY !

    It's coming up to that time where The Australian Psychedelic Society - Sydney celebrates Aldous Huxley's seminal Doors of Perception experience on Sunday May 23rd with a day devoted to psychedelic Cactus. Rather than covering all psychoactive cacti, this year we are choosing to focus on celebrating all things San Pedro/Huachuma in keeping with the more prevalent Australian species. We are super excited to be able to host full capacity events again and as such, we expect tickets for this to sell fast so get in while you can ! We will be screening the Aubrey Marcus’ film Huachuma directed by Mitch Schultz. The film is a 45 minute excursion deep into the heart of the Peruvian rainforest to experience the magic of the 3000 year old plant medicine: Huachuma. We will then speak to Mike Jay author of 'Mescaline: A Global History of The First Psychedelic’ about the traditions, customs and rituals of Huachuma culture, Chavin De Huantar, the Western discovery of San Pedro and the cultural implications and consequences for the Indigenous people and preservation of these customs to this day. To complete the day, we are privileged to have an SAB elder many of you may know Tony Davey, presenting a hand-ons demonstration of how to cultivate Trichocereus cacti from tip-cuttings, trunks and seed. Tony will demonstrate the basics of cactus cultivation using different methods and answer any questions the community may have about starting their collection or enhancing their existing gardens. WHEN: Sunday May, 23rd, 13:00-16:00 WHERE: Giant Dwarf Theatre, 280 Cleveland St, Surry Hills NSW 2010 (please note Giant Drwarf have moved a few blocks up since we were there last time) TICKETS: www.giantdwarf.com.au/events/APS FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE: https://www.facebook.com/events/168999428458131

  15. Hi All, The Australian Psychedelic Society is in the process of launching a program called Psychedelic Creatives. I'm posting here in hopes (and assurity) that we have a bunch of really amazing artists of all kinds in the SAB community here (remember the term artist broadly applies to all creative expressions). That you all may be able to suggest some great local artists that we could showcase too. So if you'd like to get involved, contact us through the new APS website link below - or drop the contact details and examples of an artist you admire in the thread here. The Psychedelic Creatives project will focus on those working as an amateur, semi or semi-professional creatives in order to support those making, or attempting to make an income in the creative arts within our community with a notable 'body of work' to demonstrate. Psychedelic inspiration can be explicit or implicit, but there needs to be a link that we can demonstrate. The project will take the form of an interview/article (either video or text) where we pose a series of questions to an artist in order to tease out their psychedelic influence and resonance, interspersed with pieces of the artist's work with links to their various project sites and platforms where others can support them in their work We are therefore calling for submissions from the creatives within our communities so that we can provide a window of support and exposure for the independent artists out there...be they visual artists/musicians/creative writers/poets/sculptors/film-makers/comedians/graffiti artists/performance artists/etc Below you can register your interest, and we will be in touch regarding your submission. We really look forward to seeing what this amazing community can do! https://www.psychedelicsociety.org.au/psychedelic-creatives
