Psychedelic Integration Circle @ SolRise Farm and Cultural Arts Center – Buffalo Rising


“LSD is a psychedelic drug that sometimes causes psychotic behavior in people who have NOT taken it. “

?? Timothy Leary


Psychedelics are nothing new. Their acceptance is growing, however. Psilocybin mushrooms are used to treat depression, and microdosing is becoming a growing trend that is said to have positive effects on well-being and cognition.

Earlier this week, the New York Times ran an article on The promises and dangers of psychedelic health care.

Locally, groups like The Psychedelic Society of Western NY continue to wave the psychedelic flag, hosting events such as integration circles, where once every two months like-minded people come together to “share an intentional space to evoke memories, stories, meditations, ideas, share your voice and learn from others how integrate the lessons of a psychedelic experience into your daily life.

“The coronavirus pandemic has turned things upside down internally and externally and we could all use some time to pause and think. Some topics that we have discussed in the past are: the psychedelic trips we have had, the impact of those trips, any ideas that come from it, others share practices or philosophies that they have picked up in the process of road that can remind them of the psychedelic experiences and many other topics along the way. – The Psychedelic Society of Western NY

Psychedelic Integration Circles will now be held in person on the last Sunday of the month. These events are donation based.
