    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. Thought y’all might enjoy this interesting conversation that James W. Jesso hosted with a few of us about where the Australian psychoactive Acacia species fit into the local psychedelic scene here, and how our interactions with these species connect us to a deeper connection with the spirit of the land: https://www.jameswjesso.com/drinking-the-psychedelic-acacia-trees-of-australia-psychedelic-cafe-5/?fbclid=IwAR1goTSu03e3fP0QGs_DjGLAL3fC62K8nBkYv3Pu4MgmfLJV6CA5RqG2uv0
  16. 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

    Meet up: Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle

    I hope some of you managed to make it to the gardens. We usually start with a meeting point and post our final location (on the grass nearby) to the Facebook pages, but in future I'll try and remember to post final location details here too. We had a great turnout with about 20-30 people and it was super chill and a really nice day for it. It was good to see the cactus gardens again but the poor old Scop there just doesn't get a chance to grow coz of unscrupulous a-holes stealing pups and branches...given its age it should be a massive stand by now, but it's the same size as it was 5 years ago !!! Now that venues are open to full capacity again, the APS have a bunch of bigger events coming up - Including CACTUS DAY on May 23rd & MUSHROOM DAY on June 20th which will both be huge !!! We also have a special FREE Bicycle Day LIVE STREAM interview and Q&A with Paul Daley - one of the main Shulgin Archivists at 3:00pm THIS ARVO on the APS Youtube channel:
  20. Also while y'all are there on APS Youtube, check out our other videos from past events if you haven't seen them already - some great interviews and recordings of APS events over the last several years...there's even some talks from members of the forum here
  21. This is the Youtube link to join in: You can post questions about the Shulgins, their archives , history and compounds in the chat section to the side when the event goes live at 3:00pm today

  24. APS-Sydney is excited to bring you all our fifth instalment of Book Club ....for which it was collectively decided that this time, we choose the seminal text: The Cosmic Serpent: DNA and the Origins of Knowledge by Jeremy Narby. (free PDF here) Narby is a Canadian anthropologist and author and has several books that examine psychedelic/entheogenic psychology, Indigenous Knowledge and Intelligence in nature.  The Cosmic Serpent is an adventure of science and visionary insights through unexplored jungles of the Amazon and the uncharted aspects of consciousness to the heart of knowledge.The Cosmic Serpent is a first-person narrative of discovery that presents new perspectives on biology, anthropology, and the limits of rationalism, revealing how different our perception of the world around us appears when we open our minds to alternate ways of seeing. Narby interlinks shamanism and molecular-biology, to reveal DNA as a universal language contained in all life around us that can be accessed and downloaded by shamanic entheogens. The book reveals how the Ayahuasca brew invokes serpentine visions that parallel those of ancient cultures the world over, and can be seen as a 'bio-technology' that allows access to molecular information from the DNA that ‘animates’ all livings things. WHEN: 6:00pm - 9:00pm WHERE: The Temple On The Park, 158 Australia Street, Newtown. TICKETS: $15 https://events.humanitix.com/sydney-book-club-the-cosmic-serpent FACEBOOK LINK: Please mark ‘interested’ or ‘going’ to help us gauge numbers of people attending https://fb.me/e/1YyHocgNp Hope to see some familiar SAB faces there, some new ones and the Sydney community coming together for this really cool book and great conversation.
