Car-pooling is also a good idea. See you all there :)
  3. PSYCHEDELIA is a short but thorough documentary film about psychedelic drugs and their ability to induce mystical and religious experiences. The film chronicles their use in controlled research studies prior to the cultural upheaval of the 1960s, when LSD was regarded as a promising medical breakthrough, as well as their recent re-emergence in psychiatry. Featuring leading experts in the field of psychedelic research, the film tells the story of medical professionals who have re-introduced these compounds into a legal and growing field of study. First-person accounts from a study on end-of-life anxiety explore the profound, life-altering insights psychedelics induce in participants and what these insights might mean for society at large. After the film we will have an open mic discussion and there will be plenty of time to socialise as we have the venue for a few hours. Hope to see you all there ! WHEN: Sun 27th Nov 2pm-6pm WHERE: Mothership Studios, 18-22 Sydney Street, Marrickville TICKETS: https://events.humanitix.com/psychedelia-film-screening-and-aps-social Facebook: https://fb.me/e/2WXYu1ZsF?mibextid=RQdjqZ

    Hey Melbourne folks - APS needs some capable, reliable and knowledgeable crew to rebuild the chapter there. https://www.psychedelicsociety.org.au/articles/volunteer-position-melbourne-chapter-lead
  8. Welcome to the exclusive APS celebration of Cactus Day. We take this opportunity in May to mark the groundbreaking experience of mescaline taken by Aldous Huxley in 1953. Given to him by Humphrey Osmond, incidentally it was these two who later coined the very term ‘psychedelic’. So to celebrate this much underrated and under-discussed ‘psychedelic/entheogen’ we will be having a gathering to learn more about these amazing cacti. Our first guest speaker is ethnobotanist Liam Engel who works with Edith Cowen University and EGA (Entheogenesis Australis). Liam is the editor of the books San Pedro Hybrids and Trichocereus culture, author of the Reference Guide for Lophophora Conservation, creator of the Lophophora Research Repository and a founding moderator of Trichocereus Auctions Australia. Liam will talk about growing these completely legal plants during a workshop focused on grafting and cacti seed germination using various methods, We will then be joined by Marc Camo who is the owner-operator of Urban Tribes Needle Park Cactus Nursery, one of the earliest entheogenic cactus gardens established in Australia. The story of Urban Tribes and how this fascinating and diverse collection came to be, is grounded in Mark’s travels through Peru and South America during the 90s. Whilst there he not only collected specimens but participated in traditional Huachuma and Peyote ceremonies and will talk about the ritual practices he encountered whilst there. Additionally we will be screening the Wade Davis film; PEYOTE TO LSD: A PSYCHEDELIC ODYSSEY. Filmed in five different countries the documentary is based on the groundbreaking discoveries of revolutionary ethnobotanist Richard Evans Schultes. In a full-length cinematic journey from native ceremonies to laboratories in Switzerland, the film explores the evolution of psychedelic substances from sacred plants to modern psychotropics. This will also be a unique opportunity to bring some cactus cuts to giveaway or swap/trade, etc in order for someone to get their collections started or grow an existing one and join in this amazing hobby. WHEN: May 29th, 12:00 - 3:00pm WHERE: Temple on the Park, Newtown TICKETS: $20 from; https://events.humanitix.com/aps-cactus-day-2022
  9. For this very special instalment of Book Club, we are excited to be joined by author of the book Aya Awakenings, Rak Razam for a live Q&A and the usual bookclub vibe. https://fb.me/e/1CL6YMEql In Aya Awakenings, experiential journalist Rak Razam sets out to document the thriving business of 21st-century hallucinogenic shamanism starting with a trip to the annual Amazonian Shaman Conference in Iquitos, Peru, where he meets a motley crew of "spiritual tourists," rogue scientists, black magicians, and indigenous and Western healers and guides, all in town to partake of the ritual- and the medicine- of ayahuasca, "the vine of souls." Combining his personal story with the history of Amazonian shamanism, Razam takes the reader along on an entertaining, enlightening adventure. Author/ Filmmaker and Host of the Shamans of the Global Village. Rak Razam is an alchemical storyteller with his finger on the pulse of tomorrow and the heart of today. A screenwriter, documentary filmmaker, author, journalist, and culture maker, his focus is on the cultural paradigm birthing in this brave new world. www.rakrazam.com Where: The Temple on The Park, Newtown When: Fri 29th April 6:30-9:00pm Tickets: https://events.humanitix.com/aya-awakenings-q-and-a-with-rak-razam-aps-book-club?fbclid=IwAR1D4XK1EWo_BBM45aYW-1krniCAibLPzO9KYLTRaTYdGNuCqRApzcYdJ1w
  10. The thing is growing a tree will take 5-7 years to produce any useful relief and that's in a tropical environment. Its probably better worth your time to seek our a vendor that ships to Oz either form the US or Indo...and even then go money on recommendations as a few are probably dodgy too.
  11. Yeh the quality of said 'XXX under the counter vendor' that is well known here is not great by comparison. I have read very recently that there are talks about an outright international ban coming from the UN (coerced by the US FDA as per usual !), so getting it in even from US vendors may prove increasingly difficult.

    Live Diplopterys Cabrerana plants (Chaliponga, Chagropanga) seems to be a very rare occurrence in Australia. I've been told this is more to do with classification/taxonomy confusion than anything; previously being classified in the Banisteriopsis family as B. hereian Ratsch here.. though as Trout points out in Some Simple Tryptamines; "Diplopterys cabrerana (Cuatrecasas) Gates [Misidentified by Morton as Banisteriopsis rusbyana (despite this persistent error, they are not synonyms)" It does feel quite different to Chacruna as it is said to contain 5-MeO-DMT or at the very least 5-OH-DMT (Bufotenin) in addition to n-n-DMT and is more commonly used as an admixture in the Columbian & Ecuadorian Yagé traditions than in Peruvian ayahuasca traditions.
  13. If anyone in Perth is interested in cannabis and cannabis law reform, the Australian Psychedelic Society-APS is co-hosting an event with the SSDP with speakers discussing this plant from the perspectives of science, society & politics. Both these organisations need your support if we're to help bring about change, and I know the Perth crew would love to see you all there in person. TICKETS HERE
