A message from our President:
I'm so glad you've come to check us out! A big welcome from all of us at Oxford Psychedelic Society; we provide a space for discussion and education on psychedelics, believing strongly in their huge potential for personal healing, growth and exploration. Not only do we organise super exciting talks and lectures where you can learn about some of the newest research on psychedelics, but we’ve also created a beautiful open-minded community where you can have the conversations you’ve always wanted but never found a place for in Oxford. Make sure you’re signed up to our mailing list so you don’t miss out on our newsletter, and stay up to date with us and our events on Facebook. I hope to see you in person soon at our events!
As founders and representatives of psychedelic societies across the globe, we assert that people have a basic liberty and freedom to responsibly use psychedelic substances: for healing, for growth, for fun, and for personal, collective and spiritual exploration.
We work to secure these rights in collaboration with allies within social, political and scientific institutions.
We support changes to existing national and international laws and governmental policies which would decriminalize and reschedule psychedelics, allowing for proper research and safe regulated access, to stop pushing people into clandestine practices and the risks of the black market and the penal system.
We resolve to change the cultural dialogue surrounding psychedelic substances to accurately reflect what is known, and steer it towards more productive and compassionate conclusions through education and information.
Like mushrooms emerging after the rain, the global network of psychedelic societies is rising up as a public forum and voice for all the people who appreciate psychedelics.
